In a marriage there should be three people in the relationship, and both husband and wife should be more in love with the third party than they are with each other. That third party is God.
That's the concept shared by licensed professional counselor and author Debra Fileta in an op-ed published Thursday for Relevant magazine.
Fileta says loving Christ more than your spouse should be the goal of every couple, and can result in a stronger marriage. more >>

WASHINGTON — Thousands of Romanian Pentecostal Evangelicals peacefully protested Norwegian embassies in five national capitals, including Washington D.C. on Friday, calling on the Norwegian government to free five children who were removed from their parents by child services last year after a teacher complained about the family's Christian faith.
The three sons and two daughters of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were taken into custody by the Barnevernet (Norway's child services) on Nov. 16, 2015, after their daughter's teacher cited concern about the family's belief that "God punishes sin."
Despite not having been tried in a court of law, the children have been placed in three separate foster homes and the parents have been granted limited visitation rights. The family also claims that the agency has initiated the adoption process for the children on the grounds that they were physically abused. more >>

Intervarsity was criticized by Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins and Rock for Life President Erik Whittington in a Christian Post op-ed for denying their exhibitor application while also featuring a Black Lives Matter speaker who demeaned pro-life activism. more >>
Ciara and Russell Wilson chose to remain mum after the female singer's ex-boyfriend Future let out a Twitter tirade about her refusal to let him see their son during the holidays.
In a Twitter statement posted earlier this week, rapper Future accused singer Ciara of being a control freak and not allowing him to see their son Future Zahir during the recent holidays. Even after he exposed a lot of their personal issues, Ciara and current boyfriend Russell Wilson did not react on social media, according to the International Business Times.
After claiming that Ciara did not let him see the child during the special occasions, he threatened to release a song all about it. In a message, he said his ex-girlfriend has "control problems" and he has to see a lawyer just to be with his son. In addition, he implied that he gives her $15,000 every month and has been staying silent for more than a year. more >>
