UPPER MARLBORO, Maryland — Pro-Life activists addressed five myths which support a culture of abortion at the 2014 Students for Life of America National Conference.
"The principle reason why I am passionate about the pro-life issue is because I believe there's an empty grave in the Middle East that used to be occupied by Jesus of Nazareth," Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, declared. Moore added that Jesus "is a former embryo, a former zygote, a former fetus, a former crisis pregnancy who is now the ruler of the entire universe."
Below are the top 5 myths discussed at the conference. Myth number one was not discussed at the conference because the speaker was snowed in, but he spoke to The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday. more >>

Recently I discovered I am one of the many victims of the credit card breach at Target. Thieves stole my credit card number and personal information possibly with the intention to steal money and possibly my identity. Crafty thieves have found a way to wreak havoc in the lives of thousands using our personal information against us.
The electronic age has made identity theft more familiar but actually it has been around since the beginning of time. The thief of old steals a different kind of personal information. He wants to rob us of our spiritual identity in order steal our inheritance, kill our hope, and destroy our trust in the truth – the Word of God. Why? Identity is how we see ourselves. For example we are "in Christ" or not. We are a "new creation", or we are the same old person. We are forgiven or not. For the believer identity is foundational to our faith because it is built on what God says is true of each of us. A stolen identity equals a life of less than what God intended.
The first case of identity theft is recorded in Genesis 3: more >>
