Depending on how you look at it, Jim Bob Duggar may be one of the least expected people to offer parental advice, given his son's recent scandalous fall from grace. Then again, perhaps Jim Bob's experiences make him one of the best qualified to speak on family matters.
However you choose to see it, when it comes to being a father and raising a family, Jim Bob has got a few suggestions. In the aftermath of Josh's molestation and cheating scandals, which rocked the entire Duggar clan — causing the cancellation of the family's reality show "19 Kids and Counting" — Jim Bob posted an open letter on the family's website suggesting that in order to safeguard one's family from sources of temptation, removing all "worldly or sensual content" from the home is the best course of action.
Duggar suggests that risque content be replaced with "good things," including "wholesome music, biographies of great Christians, good old-fashioned family fun and games." He also advises on how to be the family's spiritual leader and coach. more >>
Evangelicals who support gay marriage are not "intellectually honest" and are unfaithful to the biblical teachings on sexuality and marriage, Family Research Council Senior Vice President Rob Schwarzwalder said Tuesday.
The 2,800-member Evangelical Theological Society, a prominent group of leading Evangelical scholars, theologians and professors, adopted four resolutions last week at its annual meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, which affirm the Bible's teaching on marriage and sexuality.
Schwarzwalder, one of the co-drafters of the resolutions, told The Christian Post that although the ETS very seldom adopts resolutions, the resolutions were passed in an attempt to debunk the mainstream media's notion that there's a divide amongst Evangelicals on gay marriage and sexual morality. more >>
If faith and perseverance were muscles, then life would be the ideal resistance trainer, and Jase and Missy Robertson would be musclebound.
Toughened by life's tests and trials, the Duck Dynasty couple has cultivated the kind of faith that makes them sure about their family's future. " … Whatever happens, we're confident that God is going to be with us," Missy Robertson told The Christian Post last week in an interview. " … We know it 100 percent."
But that kind of certainty doesn't come easy — it's forged in the midst of adversity. For Jase and Missy, adversity came in the form of health challenges with their daughter, Mia. These challenges have taught them valuable lessons. more >>
RICHMOND, Va. — The Benham Brothers have said that being pro-life is a vital position to hold and one that requires more than just opposing abortion.
At a gala held Thursday in honor of a pro-life facility called the Pregnancy Resource Center, Jason and David Benham stressed the importance of the pro-life movement in national politics.
Before over 500 attendees at the Richmond Marriott, the brothers called on Christians "to be lightning bolts" instead of "lightning bugs" when it comes to witnessing, adding that "where you stand on life is where you stand on everything." more >>
NEW YORK — When you think about heroes of the faith, Billy Graham, John Wesley and others may come to mind. But in the film "Return to the Hiding Place," the sequel to "Hiding Place," viewers are given an intriguing look into the sacrifice of Corrie ten Boom, a brave woman who risks her life to help Jews escape the Nazi Holocaust. The film's lead actress, Rachel Spencer-Hewitt, opens up to The Christian Post about the impact that powerful women such as ten Boom can have on the generations to come.
"Return to the Hiding Place" chronicles a time in history when Nazis begin killing Jews in Holland and a group of youth fight to save the innocent. Spencer-Hewitt plays ten Boom's niece, Aty Van Woerdan, who is part of the student resistance against the Nazis and is engaged to the resistance leader.
Among the students is Hans Poley, an intelligent young physicist who finds refuge with ten Boom after refusing to join the Nazis. "Return to the Hiding Place" is inspired by Poley's book of the same name. Poley and his friends begin their resistance movement at their university, which eventually leads to the transportation of Jews to ten Boom's hiding place. more >>
