Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, said that she is honored to call herself an "evangelical feminist," sharing that she was raised in a strong evangelical home where women were well respected.
"If 'evangelical feminism,' means women who know what they believe, who are strong in their convictions, who are bold in their actions, who are courageous to stand up and speak out for Jesus Christ while being godly wives and mothers, then I celebrate them today," Lotz wrote on Tuesday, which was International Women's Day.
"And I would be honored to be counted in their number," she added. more >>

While promoting their upcoming film "Miracles From Heaven," Bishop T.D. Jakes and DeVon Franklin, who serve as producers for the film slated for March 16, spoke about navigating through some of the crises seen in the movie.

"I think people have to realize that they don't go to church for other people. Until they realize that, they will always get disappointed and leave because other people are just as flawed as you are," Bishop Jakes told The Christian Post when asked how he, as a man of the cloth, would handle that situation. more >>

"It's hard to wrap your mind around a crowd of 30-, 40-, 50-, 60 thousand people — in fact you can't. So what I do is I think about that person that is cynical that didn't even want to come in the first place ...
Though I'm speaking to a crowd in reality, I direct my remarks as though we were having a conversation — me and that person that's in attendance." more >>
