Grammy nominated singer Crowder stopped by "Fox & Friends" last week and sung his new song, "Run Devil Run," which is a song dedicated solely to taunting Satan.
Before the edgy performance, Crowder talked about his new album, American Prodigal. He revealed that he stayed up until midnight waiting for the release of his new record. When asked about his album title and his patriotism, the worshipper says he "loves" being an American.
"It couldn't fall at a better time with all the conversations being what they are right now," he said of his album. more >>
Guess who has the world's 15th largest economy, right between Russia and Australia? American religion. Yep.
A few months ago on BreakPoint, I mentioned a Pew study that demonstrated Americans' increasing ignorance of the vital role played by religious institutions in this country. Between 2001 and 2016, the percentage of Americans who think that religion plays a role in solving important social problems fell from 75 percent to 58 percent.
As I said at the time, "part of the problem is that the religious contribution to the common good is so woven into the fabric of American life, most people these days just take it for granted and never stop to think about how prevalent it really is." more >>
Sixty-eight-year-old "Duck Dynasty" star Si Robertson says in his new book that ever since the A&E reality show became a household name in 2012, several women have asked to marry him even though he's been married to the same woman for over four decades.
Many "Duck Dynasty" fans wouldn't know just by watching the show that "Uncle Si" has been married to his wife, Christine, for over 45 years. While other members of the Robertson family have been featured on the show, Christine Robertson has chosen to stay off camera and out of the public spotlight.
In his new book, Si-Renity: How I Stay Calm and Keep the Faith, Robertson explains that many "Duck Dynasty" fans still don't realize that he's actually married because they never see his wife on the show. He wrote that as he regularly travels to many different towns and cities across the globe for speaking engagements and to meet fans, he has had a number of encounters with fans who have come up and proposed to him. more >>
Hillsong NYC leader Carl Lentz shares his gratitude for church growth in a recent social media post where he reveals that hundreds of people stand in line and wait to get into a church service.
Lentz took to Instagram on Friday with a photo that showed a line of people standing down a New York City block. The young pastor with over 336,000 Instagram followers used a photo to express his gratitude for the growth his church is experiencing, while revealing that his ministry continues to surpass the amount of people they can fit in a building per service.
"Last night @hillsongnyc was special and typical.. This photo encapsulates the heart of our church.. When churches have buildings they own, it's easy to take for granted how convenient it is to simply have meetings! We have never known that.. Every meeting we have ever had, we have to rent a venue. Pay for it. And it's never big enough! So waiting in a line, to get into an overcrowded room where you just might have to stand the whole time, becomes a normal thing. It's literally a choice to be inconvenienced..We have had people leave our church from time to time and say 'You know what, I just want to be somewhere smaller.' Not realizing the new place they choose to go, has the same desire to grow!! It just hasn't happened yet, or at the same 'speed'..I refuse to be a Christian that asks to be delivered from my own prayer requests.. 'God bring revival to NYC!!' And then when He does, resent what I used to rejoice about.. No way," Lentz wrote. more >>
I have two spiritual heroes, and neither of them have theological degrees. They haven't written any books, nor do they have huge social media followings (or even Twitter accounts, for that matter). Their preaching isn't known around the world because, well, they don't preach. In fact, they aren't even men.
Amy and Beth — my aunt and grandmother, respectively — are my heroes in the faith. Amy is a part-time medical professional slash full-time mom of boys, and Beth owns a little store and a herd of cattle (full of spoiled cows she's given names!) in the country.
Though, in this world, these two women live what some might call mundane lives, I expect to see them highly honored and crowned with unspeakable glory in the world to come. Amy and Beth are warriors for the gospel. They would never describe themselves in such terms, and if you commended them for their faith they would humbly inform you that their faith is terribly weak. But these two women are far from frail in the Spirit. For two decades, long before I believed in the truth they cherish, I witnessed these women continually clothe themselves in the Lord Jesus (Romans 13:14) and live lives that are worthy of the gospel (Philippians 1:27). more >>
One of the biggest problems facing today's American workers is dealing with anxiety and fear in the workplace. Anxiety over performance, anxiety over competition, and anxiety over relationships with bosses and co-workers can all contribute to making your workplace a dreaded environment.
Monday mornings suddenly look bleak and foreboding because of anxiety over starting the new work week.
While much has been written about fear and anxiety in the workplace, the underlying cause of that condition is a lack of faith in an omnipotent and loving God. Separation from the Lord leads to anxiety which, in turn, produces actions that sometimes can't be undone. more >>
