The Rev. Franklin Graham recently reiterated his remarks from earlier this year, calling on Christians in America to stand for biblical values despite social opposition.
In a column published in the July-August edition of Decision magazine, the head of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, declared that "Heaven is not for cowards!"
"Christians cannot ignore parts of God's Word because they are unpopular or cause division. Our commission is to proclaim Christ and all He stands for," wrote Graham. more >>
Recent debate about access to women's birth control could not be more deceptive or ironic because it's based on the false presupposition that reproductive rights is solely a woman's issue. The universally known biological fact is that no woman can become pregnant without a man's sperm.
Yet, "family planning" initiatives have always targeted women, not men. None involve a systematic implementation of vasectomies or chemical castration. None address the reality that no female birth control method prevents STD/HIV/AIDS transmission.
Promoting female birth control is profoundly sexist. Targeting women reinforces widespread, long-held cultural and legal norms that ignore male sexual responsibility and culpability, and actually creates tangible, authentic gender inequality. more >>
WASHINGTON — Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, praised Sen. Marco Rubio's, R-Florida, Wednesday speech at the Catholic University of America as both courageous and civil.
"I thought it was a combination of courage and of civility," he told The Christian Post after the event. "He not only took strong stands ... he did it, strikingly, in a tone indicating he did not simply want to score points, he wanted to speak to people who disagreed with him."
Moore was on a panel discussing the speech and the ERLC co-sponsored the event. more >>
A human rights panel that is part of the United Nations has criticized the Republic of Ireland over its abortion laws and alleged abuse taking place at its Catholic-run homes.
The UN Human Rights Committee recently stated that the Roman Catholic-dominated country should revise its strict abortion laws, which were recently loosened via an act of Parliament.
An ex-gay ministry group has released a documentary comprised of interviews with individuals who identify as having formerly struggled with same-sex attraction.
Mastering Life Ministries announced last week the release of "Such Were Some of You," a documentary featuring interviews with 29 people who describe themselves as "former homosexuals."
David Kyle Foster, founder and director of Mastering Life Ministries, told The Christian Post that "Such Were Some of You" was made because his organization "wants people to know that Jesus Christ can transform anyone's life, including homosexuals, and we want them to know how He does it." more >>
Men are notorious for nurturing superficial friendships that center around the safer subjects of sports, business, sex and almost anything other than what's most important.
We men protect our reputation and ego by surrounding ourselves with other men who want the same thing, and don't want to expose any true vulnerabilities or be held accountable for behaviors. "How's work going?" "Did you see the game last night?" is easier than "How's the marriage?"
Over the last 15 years Every Man Ministries surveys reveal that only 1 in 10 men over 30 years have someone in their lives they would call a "true friend" who knows them at a deep or personal level. The irony of this reality is that we also know the margin of victory for men at the personal level is often… one other man, who is a true friend, who "gets under the rock" with you on the deep issues of life. more >>
