A group of Christians protesting against abortion outside a Planned Parenthood clinic in Portland were attacked by a man who threw a white, powdery cleaning solution at them.
According to the Christian News Network, the man, who is purportedly not being punished or prosecuted for his attack, threw Comet cleaning solution at six Christian protesters earlier this month.

The event, associated with the Biblical Church Evangelism Conference, is hosted by Beaverton Grace Bible Church and organized by its pastor, Chuck O'Neal. more >>
If all goes well and he is able, former President Jimmy Carter will be teaching his Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia, this Sunday and several Sundays more over the next three months while he's being treated for brain cancer.
If you plan on sitting in on one of those classes, however, you might find the competition a little stiff as the church only seats 300 people and you are not allowed to make reservations.
"Because of the high volume of calls we have been experiencing as of late, we ask for your understanding and patience as we seek to return your call," a recording on the church's voicemail noted when The Christian Post reached out to find out more about the class on Friday morning. more >>

Even though St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has won a Super Bowl ring as a player, has the most career wins of any Tennessee Titans head coach ever and has established a successful career coaching the sport he loves, there was still something missing from his life that kept him from being fully satisfied.
In a new video released Monday by the "I Am Second" movement, the 57-year-old Rams coach explained that although he grew up in the church, he was "turned off" by religion early in his life and never had time as a National Football League head coach to accept the Lord in his heart until he came to the realization in 2010 that he needed Christ to survive life's grind.
Although Fisher identified as a Christian throughout his life, he said that one scaring childhood experience likely led him to live a life separate from God without knowing the true meaning of what accepting Jesus as his Savior truly meant. more >>
