After making headlines last week for saying Donald Trump is a "baby Christian" who has accepted a relationship with Jesus, evangelical leader James Dobson has emphasized that even though the Republican nominee is still maturing in his Christian walk, that is no reason to not vote for him and give Hillary Clinton the power to "run the world."
After the presumptive Republican presidential nominee met with over 900 evangelical leaders in New York City last Tuesday, Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family and Family Talk radio, said during an interview with Pastor Michael Anthony of GodFactor.com that Trump "did accept a relationship with Christ."
There's nothing more valuable than the presence of God in our lives. And my goal for teaching about God's presence and anointing is to increase your desire to completely and promptly obey God. Because the more we love, trust and obey God, the stronger His anointing will be in our lives.
Now God's love for you is perfect, complete, and unconditional. He couldn't love you any more than He does right now and His love for you never changes. But we can grow in our love for God. As we learn more about His character and have experience with Him through a personal relationship with Him, our trust in Him and love for Him grows. And this causes more of the anointing of the Holy Spirit to work in and through us.

Gospel star Kirk Franklin received the Bobby Jones Best Gospel/Inspirational Award at the BET Awards Sunday night.
Hand-in-hand with his wife of 20 years, Tammy, a humble-looking Franklin took to the stage to accept his award after hearing his name announced in a field that included other talented artists such as Erica Campbell, Lecrae, Tasha Cobbs, Anthony Brown & Group Therapy, and Tamela Mann.
In a year that has seen multiple shootings and the deaths of legendary pop artist Prince and sports icon Muhammad Ali, Franklin told the audience: "I know these are very, very difficult days and we've had a lot of loss and a lot of hurt — and I want you to know that even when you feel like you've hit rock bottom, often you find that God is the rock at the bottom." more >>
The new season of "Home Free" stars former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, who says the show highlights the biblical principle that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
The second season is different from season 1 in that it encourages every competitor to win a home for a hero in their life as well as a grand prize sum of $100,000 for themselves. Each contestant must make it down Homefree Blvd., building one by one an entire neighborhood for their heroes, with the grand prize resulting in a dream home.
Contrary to his partner home improvement expert Mike Holmes, Tebow has a softer approach to lead the contestants. His role is to encourage them and give them the will to make it to the end. more >>
