Tullian Tchividjian, the former pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian church in Florida, who resigned in May after admitting to an affair, has said in a heartfelt message to supporters that he and his family have been overwhelmed by the ordeal, but he is relying on Jesus and willing to let people see him "at the bottom."
"As you can imagine, the last few months have changed my life forever. Nothing will ever be the same. I keep thinking I'm going to wake up one morning and it will have all been a bad, bad dream. But that morning never comes," Tchividjian, who is the grandson of famous evangelist Billy Graham, shared on Facebook.
"Instead, I wake up every day and am freshly hit with the fact that this nightmare is real. My family and I are, at every imaginable level, overwhelmed. What life will look like from here on out is completely unknown to us. And that scares me. But we are alive and not without hope. We are certain that better and brighter days are ahead." more >>
As the sun sets in New York, Manhattan's 23 million population drops to around 7 million as people head back home from work. For the city's homeless, however, it's a rush to find a shelter or safe home that can take them in for the night.
This is the daily routine nationwide for around 3-and-a-half million Americans forced to sleep in parks, under bridges, in shelters or cars.
"The biggest misunderstanding about homelessness is that it is either a result of addiction or mental illness. Sometimes the most common cause is trauma," Josiah Haken, vice president of Outreach Operations at the Relief Bus, a mobile homeless resource center in New York and New Jersey, told The Christian Post on Wednesday. more >>
A North Carolina worship leader and his wife, who lost their two baby sons in May after a box truck rear-ended their minivan, have opened up about their struggles during the grieving process and share how they've sustained their faith in God throughout the pain and sorrow.

Dobbs died as a result of the accident while his 28-year-old mother was rushed to the hospital so that an emergency C-section could be performed to try and save the life of their unborn child. more >>
The Center for Medical Progress has released its fourth undercover video shining a light on Planned Parenthood's controversial aborted baby parts compensation practices, which purports to show a vice president of the organization negotiating a deal and discussing how to avoid legal consequences.
The video, which was released on Thursday, allegedly shows Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Dr. Savita Ginde, discussing illicit compensation for aborted baby parts, the sale of such parts across state lines, and the importance of having Planned Parenthood affiliates and its legal teams on the same page so that such transactions look good in the eye of the "public sector."
The new video shows two investigators posing as tissue procurement officers for a human biologics company discussing the possibility of securing only "intact specimens" with Ginde during a visit to a Denver "mega-abortion clinic" headquarters on April 7 of this year. more >>

Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, says churches should not abandon the debate on gay marriage and overall sexual ethics.
Speaking at an event in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, Moore asserted that "to capitulate on those issues" on sexual ethics "is not an option for a Gospel people."
"There are some people in our context right now who because these issues of sexuality and the sexual revolution are so controversial and so often confused, where people will often say to those who hold to even the most basic definition of a Christian sexual ethic 'you're a bigot,' the proper response is to simply be silent," said Moore. more >>
