Willie Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" testified that the forthcoming film "God's Not Dead," which tells the story of a college student who accepts his professor's challenge to provide a defense for the existence of God and the Christian faith, inspired him and strengthened his own faith.
"I was very impressed with how they made the movie," Robertson told The Christian Post in an interview on Friday. "I would definitely say my own faith was strengthened – I was glad to be on the side of the kid defending his faith."
Robertson and his wife Korie play themselves in the film, movie stars interviewed about their faith in God by a reporter also covering the outspoken student's debate with his professor. Since the movie was filmed in separate takes, the actor told CP he had no idea how the story all fit together until he saw the entire film recently. "I thought it was well written and it came together," Robertson said. "It inspired me." more >>
A new autobiography tells the conversion story of a Western Muslim who risked everything to become a born-again Christian. The book reads like a murder-mystery novel, in which a committed follower of Muhammad researches the historic facts of Islam and Christianity to find the truth about Jesus Christ.
"It is no understatement to say that Muslims often risk everything to embrace the cross," writes Nabeel Qureshi in his new book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity.
Those who leave Islam for Christianity are cut off from their families and friends, may face death (the hadith, second only to the Quran in determining Muslim law, orders Muslims to kill apostates), and risk eternal damnation for the "only one unforgivable sin, shirk, the belief that someone other than Allah is God." more >>

ESTHER "In fact, if you don't speak up at this very important time, relief and rescue will appear for the Jews from another place, but you and your family will die. But who knows? Maybe it was for a moment like this that you came to be part of the royal family." Esther 4:14 CEB more >>
Jason Kennedy, "E!" TV host, was featured in a new Glamour magazine article that suggests the Hollywood Christian was "leading the way" in a "nice-guy movement" in Tinseltown, and that his celebrity-oriented Bible study meetings have grown in popularity since they were revealed last year.
Kennedy's star-studded Bible study gatherings, noted last year in a CP article, reportedly started out quite small and have been attended by Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Justin Bieber. Nowadays, according to the Glamour article, attendance at the 32-year-old's Bible study gatherings has grown to hundreds from around town:
Two nights before the Grammys, I step inside a Beverly Hills hotel and file into a ballroom filled with more than 600 of Hollywood's photogenic finest: actors from my favorite TV shows, singers and songwriters of hit pop songs, models, talent agents, and, this being Los Angeles, lots of really hot people who only look famous. They are all here because Jason Kennedy invited them. more >>
An Indianapolis musician and speaker has extended her outreach ministry into strip clubs throughout the city where she engages in conversation with strippers and shares the message of redemption and love.
Kim Tabor admits that she would not frequent strip clubs if she did not have a compassion for the women in need, whom she considers to be no different than anyone else.
"The women in those clubs are just like me and every other women sitting at church. We're all the same at our core. We want and long to hear the same thing, that we matter and we're loved," Tabor of Stripped Free Ministry told The Christian Post. more >>
At the U.S. Air Force Academy, jets aren't the only things taking off. So is a campus-wide rebellion against the forces of political correctness. Frustrated by the school's decision to scrub a Bible verse from one of the dorm whiteboards, cadets decided to take matters into their own hands. In a show of defiance, Bible verses started popping up on dry erase boards throughout the dorms – outraging the anti-Christian "tolerance" police at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
This latest controversy boiled over earlier this week, when MRFF insisted that a verse from Galatians, posted on a cadet's personal hallway whiteboard, somehow created a "hostile environment." MRFF's Mikey Weinstein pressed for the cadet – and any officer(s) who ignored the display – to be punished for "misconduct."
FRC's Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin (USA-Ret.) couldn't believe what he was hearing. "Once the academy allowed cadets to use these whiteboards for their personal use, censorship of religious commentary is unacceptable. Either the Air Force is very confused about the Constitution of the United States or they don't really believe in the liberties that are provided by that document." In an almost comical overstatement, MRFF said, "[The message] massively poured fundamentalist Christian gasoline on an already raging out-of-control conflagration of fundamentalist Christian tyranny, exceptionalism, and supremacy at USAFA." Lt. Col. Denise Cooper agreed, calling the display "wrong" and suggesting that the Academy use the complaint as "a teachable moment." more >>
