The Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham and president of international relief organization Samaritan's Purse, took to Facebook this week to let his followers know that Olympic gold medalist and "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Bruce Jenner's transformation into a woman named Caitlyn will not change who he is on the inside or improve his relationship with his children.
Graham referred to the recent Vanity Fair interview where Jenner revealed his new identity. Jenner's son, Burt, spoke to the publication about his rocky relationship with his father and his hope that his transformation to Caitlyn will improve it.
"At the end of the day there's no way I can get around it. I am ungodly thankful and I feel very fortunate to not have had my father in my life. … I learned how to open doors and shake hands and look people in the eye. Things that my dad never would taught me," said Burt to Vanity Fair. more >>
It is so sad to read the news about the latest sex scandals involving prominent Christian leaders. I pray for them, and I pray for their victims. I also pray that more Christians would not be led into temptation, but delivered from evil.
Too often we fall for Satan's mousetrap. We focus on the cheese, while ignoring the big trap ready to break the neck.
These news stories give us an opportunity to reflect on ways to avoid such scandals going forward. Moses once said that you may be sure that your sins will find you out. more >>
Arkansas pastor Ronnie Floyd, who also serves as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the world's largest Baptist denomination, called Bruce Jenner's recent transition into a woman named Caitlyn "sad" during a fiery sermon at the five-branch Pinnacle Cross Church on Sunday.
Floyd, who has been senior pastor of Pinnacle Cross Church since 1986 and has close ties to the famed Duggar family, delivered a scathing sermon in which he denounced Jenner's transgender move. He said "gender is not fluid" and reiterated that God does not make mistakes.
"Bruce Jenner, whom some of you have read about ... at 65 years of age he came out recently that he was transgender. … He states 'for all intensive purposes I am a woman.' That is sad," Floyd told his congregation on the eve of Jenner's big reveal. more >>
A father-daughter duo of abortion providers have filed a lawsuit against Kansas over the state recently passing a law that bans abortions in which a human fetus is dismembered.
Doctors Herb Hodes and Traci Nauser of the Overland Park Center for Women's Health filed suit against the state on Monday in district court, arguing that the right to dismember an unborn baby is necessary because without that right they would rely upon procedures that are more complex and risky for the mother.
A North Carolina pastor whose two baby sons died in a car accident on May 23 told mourners at their funeral that he and his wife have forgiven the driver of the truck that rear-ended the family's car near Wilmington.
As previously reported by The Christian Post, pastor Gentry Eddings of Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, his 8-months-pregnant wife, Hadley, and their 2-year-old son, Dobbs, were travelling on their way home in two separate cars when a box truck struck the car carrying Hadley and Dobbs.
Dobbs died in the accident, while Hadley was rushed to a nearby hospital where an emergency C-section was performed in hopes of saving Eddings' unborn child. The newborn baby, who they named Reed, survived only two days before Forest Hill Church announced last Monday that he had died. more >>
Stars of Oxygen's "Preachers of L.A." reality series recently blasted TLC for exploiting then abandoning the Duggar family who star in the network's "19 Kids and Counting" reality series amid the molestation scandal that has rocked the family in recent weeks.
The Duggar family rose to fame on TLC's "19 Kids and Counting," but on Tuesday, the future for the embattled Christian family's television series remains in limbo after allegations arose that the eldest Duggar son, Josh, molested five girls when he was 14.
Discussing the resulting firestorm of criticism against the conservative Christian family, pastors Deitrick Haddon, Jay Haizlip and Wayne Chaney from "Preachers of L.A." appeared on Extra TV where they said TLC should have supported the family. more >>
