Outspoken Christian real estate entrepreneurs Jason and David Benham say last week's shooting deaths of two black men by police officers in Louisiana and Minnesota and the killing of five police officers in Dallas are major signs that America is entrenched in a godless "culture of death."
The twin brothers — who gained prominence among conservative Christians when HGTV dropped their reality TV show amid pressure from LGBT activist groups opposed to their biblical view of marriage — took to Facebook last Friday to issue their thoughts about the killing of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling by police officers in Minneapolis and Baton Rouge and the killing of five Dallas police officers last Thursday.
In a video posted to their Facebook page, the former minor league baseball players stressed that the acts of violence displayed last week are side effects caused by the "removal of God from every area of the nation." more >>

The newly released film "Caged No More," featuring Kevin Sorbo, targets the world's fastest-growing crime and the film's producer, Lisa Arnold, says Christians must lead the charge in the fight against human trafficking.
Inspired by real life events, "Caged No More" is meant to spread awareness about trafficking victims by telling the story of Aggie Prejean, a godmother on a desperate search to find sisters Skye and Elle, who were kidnapped by their father (Kevin Sorbo).
As the details behind the girls' disappearance begins to unravel, it's discovered their father has taken them overseas to be sold into slavery to settle a drug debt. Prejean enlists the help of the girls' uncle (also played by Sorbo), a well-respected local philanthropist, and his son, Wil (Alan Powell), who's a former special forces soldier, to find and rescue the girls. A global hunt ensues, and the team stops at nothing to ensure the girls are safely returned home. more >>
Pastor Saeed Abedini spoke before 100,000 people in Paris at the National Council of Resistance of Iran rally on Saturday, where he vowed that through faith in Jesus Christ, the "resurrection of the Iranian people" is coming soon.
"My presence here proves that each act of resistance will be a victory. A victory for freedom. The message of God in the Bible says that we should resist the face of tyranny," a smiling Abedini told the giant crowd.
The American pastor spent three and a half years in Iranian prison for his Christian faith, before finally being released in January as part of a hostage-prisoner exchange. In prison, he was beaten and pressured to renounce his Christian faith, but he refused to do so. more >>
As I read the news reports, my heart immediately went out to the families. The media has been fueling the flames of racism and hatred for some time and we are reaping the whirlwind.
Yes, hatred and racism do exist, but from my vantage point, not to the degree they are being portrayed. I see tremendous love between the black and white communities — love we should be encouraging.
What if we looked through a different lens other than the lens of the secular media … more >>
