Maintaining confidence in God's Word means you don't always have to be sure of His way, author Jon Bloom says.
Bloom, who serves as the board chair and co-founder of DesiringGod.org, wrote in an article on Monday titled, You Don't Have to Know God's Will, that the concept can garner objections from Christians in the midst of life's toughest moments when it can be difficult to stay focused on trusting God's promise when the path seems uncertain.
"Living in the will of God is more about knowing and trusting His specific promises than receiving specific direction," Bloom writes. "It's more about resting in his sovereignty than wrestling with my ambiguity." more >>
A leader within the Presbyterian Church (USA) took part in a protest held outside of Wendy's Dublin, Ohio, headquarters last week, demanding that the fast food chain sign onto the Fair Food Program.
"Wendy's has, for many years, avoided the criteria of the Fair Food Program, even as other companies have joined on," said Tony De La Rosa, interim executive director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, in a statement about his participation in the May 26 demonstration organized by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers.
"We believe, as people of faith, that it is time for Wendy's to adopt the criteria of this program. Thievery in the field, sexual harassment and other abuses have no place in the supply chain of our food. It is right and moral that workers receive a fair wage and just working conditions are established." more >>
Planned Parenthood is pushing California lawmakers to pass a bill that would criminalize reporters and media outlets that publish undercover video and audio of abortion clinic practices by convicting them as felons.
The unconstitutional bill aimed at silencing the press, Assembly Bill 1671, would ban reporters from reporting on their own recorded conversations and video footage as well as publishing reports on undercover investigations conducted by pro-life advocacy groups.
AB 1671 was authored by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez, D-Los Angeles, who in 2015 was the recipient of Planned Parenthood's Champion of Choice Award. If passed and signed into law by the state's Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, reporters could be fined up to $10,000 and sentenced to two to three years in state prison. more >>
The nation's largest atheist organization is being forced to walk back claims that they purchased ads on Washington D.C.'s public transportation system despite its ban on religious and issue-oriented advertisements.
"Clarification: Freedom From Religion Foundation's 'I'm an Atheist and I Vote' ad campaign is not running on Washington D.C. Metro buses, which prohibit political and advocacy ads. It's actually featured on the Prince Williams and D runs on PRTC (Potomac and Rappahannock Transportation Commission) commuter buses," stated FFRF.
This is a second blow to the organization that launched a massive ad campaign to promote their atheist Reason Rally in the nation's capital on Saturday, which was expected to feature Hollywood actor Johnny Depp who backed out of the event last week after his wife filed for divorce, as reported by The Christian Post. more >>

Conservative radio host Bryan Fischer has responded to the news that Canada might be considering two-year prison terms for speech deemed as being anti-transgender by stating that the "gay gestapo" is on a "mission from the dark lord."
"The gay gestapo is on a mission from the dark lord to relentlessly harass, intimidate, punish, and silence every advocate of sexual normalcy," said Fischer, who hosts "Focal Point" on American Family Radio.
"Now the deviancy cabal intends to send preachers who speak the truth about transgenderism and transvestitism to jail for two years," he added. more >>
