Megachurch pastor David Jeremiah remembered Tim LaHaye, best known for co-authoring the bestselling book series Left Behind, as someone that challenged him to be a better person every time he met him, during a memorial service for LaHaye Friday morning.
"I would leave always wanting to do better" and serve Jesus Christ more, said Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, where the memorial service was held, in the San Diego suburb. Tim LaHaye was the former senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church before Jeremiah took over the role.
LaHaye died on July 25 at age 90, and is survived by his wife, Beverly, four children, nine grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, all of whom were in attendance at the memorial service, arriving from eight different states. more >>

"I'm begging you, [Christians], please stop," Welch said last week on his Facebook page.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Welch, 46, shared more of what happened that night and the fruit that has come of it. Though Welch said he speaks in churches from time to time, God continues to open doors for him to witness to hurting people in unconventional settings outside its four walls. more >>
In an op-ed published by New Scientist magazine, evolutionary biologist Josh Rosenau accuses the recently opened Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky of promoting the idea that the "obliteration of all humans" is "praiseworthy" and warned schools not set up field trips to the exhibit.
It's no secret that some evolutionists and scientists have been highly critical of Answers in Genesis' $100 million, 155-meter-long ark, which opened to the public earlier this summer and is "intended to bring the Ark of Noah's day to life."
Rosenau, the programs and policy director at the U.S. National Center for Science Education, wrote in the op-ed that not only is the Ark Encounter deluging visitors with "misinformation," but it is also subtly working to indoctrinate its visitors as well. more >>
