Is porn off limits in the marital bed of a Christian husband and wife or is it OK to watch it together? Pastor John Piper answers this often asked question that he says usually comes from perplexed wives.
In a podcast posted on his website DesiringGod.org on Tuesday, Piper, the chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary, said he has been asked this question many times over the years.
"It comes to us sometimes from men, but mostly from perplexed women," he said on the podcast. "Most recently the question comes from an anonymous listener who simply asks: 'Pastor John, is it sinful to watch pornography with my spouse before sex?'" more >>
WASHINGTON — The belief that religion should be excluded from any role in the public square has become the "normal" and "accepted" view in today's society, Princeton law professor Robert P. George warned Wednesday night at an awards dinner honoring the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
Acting as the master of ceremonies for the Catholic Information Center's celebration dinner honoring Scalia as the posthumous winner of the 2016 Saint John Paul II New Evangelization Award, George offered brief remarks about how Scalia was not afraid to stand opposed to the Left's "powerful train" that has "damaged constitutional jurisprudence" by attempting to "relegate religion to the purely private sphere of life."
George, who is also a former chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, explained that since 1947, there has been a mission to distort the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to mean that faith should be excluded from public life and concealed in the privacy of churches, temples, homes and bedrooms. more >>
Two-time Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington is best known for his roles in "Glory," "The Preacher's Wife," "Remember the Titans" and "Training Day." Although the Hollywood A-lister has recently been sharing his faith openly at public speaking engagements, he reveals why he never became a preacher.
In an interview with ABC News for his film, "The Magnificent Seven," Washington sits down for a 30 minute chat in which he talks about his upbringing. He explained that his father was a minister so they were never exposed to Westerns films like the one he now stars in. Instead the only movies Washington recalled seeing as a child were the Bible epics, "King of Kings" and "The Ten Commandments."
Washington's father was a Pentecostal preacher who was a pastor belonging to the Church of God in Christ denomination for 60 years. more >>
The 1984 Olympic gold medalist in figure skating Scott Hamilton has had another bout with a brain tumor — his third since 2004. The tumor is benign, however Hamilton says him and his wife, Tracie, are facing the diagnosis with optimism, come what may.
The four-time World Championship winner had testicular cancer in 1997. This year he went in for a normal check-up and doctors found the beginnings of the brain tumor, which had re-emerged, according to People. "I told Tracie, 'God doesn't owe me a day. I'm good. Whatever's next is next.' The blessings keep coming because we allow them and we ask for them."
Hamilton had previously dealt with the same tumor in 2004 and 2010. "I have a unique hobby of collecting life-threatening illness. I survived cancer in '97. Seven years later I was diagnosed with a pituitary brain tumor." After surving testicular cancer, Hamilton felt that the first tumor diagnosis was unfair. "'Great. Okay, that's not fair. I've had cancer — I get a pass for a while,'" he said. more >>
Christian parents in the U.K. are taking legal action against their local council authority after it undermined their parental rights and sided with their 14-year-old daughter who says she wants to transition to become a boy.
The Daily Mail reports that the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told local council officials that she wants to start transitioning to look like a boy. The parents have said that she is too young to be making such decisions, however, and will be meeting with teachers and social workers next month to discuss how the girl should be addressed and treated at school.
The Christian Legal Centre, which will be funding the legal costs for the parents, blamed the "transgender cultural movement" for creating what it called a new "conflict of rights" within the family. more >>
