Evangelicals are the least engaged with the presidential election compared to other major faith groups, even though they acknowledge the importance of the race, according to a new survey.
A national survey by Barna Group says that while less than one-third of registered voters are following the news about the election "very closely," only one out of five, or 20 percent, of evangelicals are doing so.
On the contrary, voters who associate with non-Christian faiths, including Judaism, Islam and Buddhism, reported the highest level of engagement, as 41 percent of them said they were following campaign news very closely, which is twice the proportion among evangelical Christians, notes the survey, in which 869 registered voters participated between Jan. 28 and Feb. 4. more >>
Christians should be open with God about their feelings and ultimately trust in His plan for them, the Rev. Billy Graham advises in response to those who feel that God isn't solving their problems quickly enough.
The 97-year-old Baptist minister was responding to a question published in the Kansas City Star Wednesday that read, in part: "I'm kind of angry at God because he doesn't seem to be doing anything about my problems. What would happen to me if I told him?"
In his response, Graham encourages Christians to present their true feelings to God openly, saying that He already knows all of our thoughts and emotions anyway. more >>
Chaplains and relief workers for the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team have shared the many ways they're helping victims of terror in Brussels, Belgium, where 32 people were killed in an attack last week, along with conversations they've been having about Jesus Christ and eternal life.
Jeff Naber, one of the crisis-trained chaplains with the RRT, talked about the emotional and spiritual care that is being offered to the shaken-up citizens and victims of the bombings at the Brussels airport and metro train, for which the Islamic State terror group has taken responsibility for.
While looking for lighters to give to people lighting candles at a memorial set up for the victims, he met a Spanish man by the name of Jorge, who was walking by with his dog. more >>
Passion to communicate the truth of God is a characteristic innate to every born-again Christian. It may at times be dulled by seasons of sin and worldly distractions, but whenever we cast off these hindrances of the flesh and draw near to Jesus, our hearts always long to bring Him to others.
Some believers are wired in such a way that they aren't fazed by awkwardness and don't hesitate even for a second to bring Jesus up in conversation. The rest of us are a bit more timid but no less desirous to radiate Christ in our relationships and speak the gospel, even if uncomfortably, when we feel led.
Regardless of our particular personality traits, the Holy Spirit has wired into all of our new natures a passion to breathe the life-giving truth of Jesus over the "dead bones" of our lost friends (Ezekiel 37). more >>
While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," well-known Baldwin brother Stephen revealed that he is connecting with a church in New York City to start a Bible study that will help young people who are lost, depressed or confused.
"I just found in my heart that what young people are seeking more than ever is to be challenged with an authentic encounter and experience with truth. That's what I believe young people are looking for," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
The actor maintained that he's gearing up to host the Bible study because after visiting many churches that focus on youth in the city, he felt there was still something missing. Baldwin contends that as much as young, hip churches are "blessing" the younger generation with music and a practical kind of Bible teaching, that really only goes so far. more >>
A Minnesota-based evangelist is calling on 1 million Americans to gather in the nation's capital this summer to pray, worship and "stand for Jesus" and "catalytic change" at Together 2016.
Nick Hall, the founder of PULSE, a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus, is calling on Americans to unite on the National Mall on July 16 to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of a divided America.
"What would it look like, on one day, to rally the entire nation together, not around what we're against — and that's often what we get known for — but rallying people around what we're for, and around the change that Jesus offers?" Hall asked Fox News' "Fox & Friends" Easter Sunday. more >>
