NEW YORK — Influential evangelical leaders throughout the U.S. will fly to Washington, D.C. this weekend to join a crowd of as many as 1 million Christians to pray and worship together for the nation.
Inspired by Nick Hall, founder of PULSE, "Together 2016" is a prayer and evangelism movement to empower the church and awaken the culture to Jesus. Americans are being urged to unite on the National Mall, July 16, to offer prayer that God will change the hearts of individuals and thus change the nation.
"It's a gathering for all people to come together under the banner of Jesus. The only agenda is Jesus," Hall told The Christian Post. "It's the church from all backgrounds — Lutherans, Catholics, Pentecostals. It's going to be worship, it's going to be prayer, and it's going to be lifting up Jesus and praying that He changes our hearts individually. We're talking about a reset in our lives and ultimately a reset in this generation. We really believe that there's a heart issue and that God wants our heart." more >>
Pro-life activist David Daleiden, the man behind last year's controversial undercover Planned Parenthood videos, appeared in a San Francisco federal court Wednesday to argue for a motion to throw out Planned Parenthood's lawsuit against him and the organization he founded.
In January, the nation's largest abortion provider filed a federal lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress and its founder, Daleiden, claiming that their series of undercover sting videos that purported to show Planned Parenthood officials' willingness to break federal and state laws regulating fetal body part procurement and reimbursement was a fraudulent attempt to smear the company.
In response, Daleiden's legal team filed a motion to dismiss the case on the grounds that the Planned Parenthood lawsuit was nothing more than a SLAPP (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) lawsuit that attempts to silence free speech. more >>
A Kansas police department has caved to pressure from the nation's largest atheist organization to remove a biblical decal from one of its patrol vehicles.
Last month, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation was prompted by a complaint from an anonymous resident and sent a demand letter to Doug Murphy, the police chief of Harper, Kansas, demanding that his department remove a decal placed on one of the municipality-owned patrol trucks.
The decal, which was located on the upper right-hand corner of the truck's tailgate, read "Romans 13:4." more >>
This Fourth of July holiday, actress and TV personality Candace Cameron Bure is celebrating the freedoms she enjoys as an American — including the "ability to love God."
"I am so proud to be an American," Bure told FOX411. "I got lucky. My parents were born here, and I was born here and that's really the luck of the draw, right? We can't say where we are going to be born."
Bure explained that her husband of 20 years, former NHL player Valeri Bure, immigrated to the U.S. from Russia and "came here and became an American because it is such a wonderful country." more >>
Jesus Christ would vote for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump if he was an American voter, according to actor Kevin Sorbo.
Earlier this week the celebrity gossip site TMZ posted an interview with Sorbo wherein he was asked who he believed Jesus would support in the upcoming presidential election.
Prominent conservative author and essayist Mary Eberstadt has released a new book that aims to show liberals of "reason" just how intolerant and incivil today's secularist political Left has become toward traditional religious beliefs on marriage, sex and abortion.
Eberstadt, the author of a number of books who has also been published in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, National Review, First Things and other news outlets, released her new book, It's Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies, last week and spoke in Washington on Tuesday to discuss the main takeaways from her work.
"Today, as opposed to 40 years ago, [social issues] are no longer contested. They are regarded as settled. The progressive secularists side has chalked up victory after victory on cases involving school prayer, obscenity, abortion and same-sex marriage," Eberstadt told attendees at a lunchtime discussion at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. more >>
