A year ago, I transitioned from my staff position in a Nashville church to go full-time in serving the wider body of Christ. Writing regular news commentaries and hosting a weekly lecture series on the hot-button issues impacting our nation, my God-given assignment is to raise awareness and help awaken Christians to the "impending distress" (I Cor.7:26).
After four decades in ministry, God called me to say farewell to salary, pension and security guarantees. It's scary, but in light of our nation's rapidly decaying cultural landscape and what many perceive as church leaders succumbing to a "spiral of silence"-especially on issues of homosexuality, abortion and religious liberty-I don't believe I have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines anymore.
These words from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak to me daily: "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." more >>
A gay priest has become the first to defy the Church of England and marry his long-time partner following Britain's legalization of same-sex marriage. A conservative group has warned that there will be a "crisis" for the church if it fails to take disciplinary action.
"There's no doubt that there is pressure within some parts of the church for the church to change its mind on sexuality," said the Rev. Preb Rod Thomas, chairman of the Reform evangelical group, according to The Telegraph on Saturday.
"If there is not clear discipline then it is the equivalent to saying 'we really didn't mean what we said.' It will precipitate a crisis." more >>
Ohio State's attorneys are prepared to seek a stay order from a federal judge who is scheduled Monday to strike down as unconstitutional the state's voter-approved ban on recognizing the marriages of same-sex couples from other states.
U.S. District Judge Timothy Black announced April 4 his intention to "issue a written decision and order by April 14, striking down as unconstitutional under all circumstances Ohio's bans on recognizing legal same-sex marriages from other states."
The plaintiffs in the case are four same-sex couples who got married in other states and are seeking to be recognized as parents on their children's birth certificates. more >>
The public career beheading of former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich at the hands of pagan sexual jihadists, coupled with an escalating epidemic of Christian business owners facing harsh government persecution for merely living out their faith, has startled awake an America lulled to sleep by the left's intentionally deceptive, yet oh-so-sweet sounding serenade of "equality, tolerance and diversity."
Average folks have finally begun to recognize that America's "progressive" power class of cultural Marxists and left-wing statists really intends, and always has, to subjugate ideological dissenters through abject inequality and intolerance, while demanding blind obedience to an anti-Christian, sexually anarchist sociopolitical agenda.
The goals of these homosexualists were clearly defined decades ago. Still, for any goal to be successfully attained, clever stratagem and sound methodology must be diligently applied. more >>
The National Organization for Marriage, a nonprofit group that advocates for traditional marriage, is expecting tens of thousands of people from across the United States to join their June "March for Marriage" in Washington to "show the world that the marriage debate isn't over."
Christopher Plante, spokesman for NOM, told The Christian Post that the June 19 march is being held in part "to show the world, the media, members of Congress and the Supreme Court that the marriage debate is not over."
"There is a huge groundswell of popular support, popular belief in traditional marriage. And despite what the polls may say, the reality is the majority of Americans believe marriage is between one man and one woman," said Plante. more >>
As Uganda continues to face international outrage over its Anti-Homosexuality Act, which was signed into law earlier this year, The Christian Post sought to get a better understanding of not only the bill but also how the churches in the East African country came to support it.
A spokesperson with the Church of Uganda (part of the Anglican Communion) answered questions from CP regarding the church's position on the law, its opinion of the law, and regarding American opposition. The spokesperson, who requested to remain anonymous, stated that they "honestly don't understand" the outrage. more >>
