Worship leaders Bryan & Katie Torwalt just released their new album Champion and the popular worship leaders share the impact their new worship music has made on them and in some communities already.
The Jesus Culture / Capitol CMG release is the first new album since the husband-and-wife worship duo's last studio release Kingdom Come in 2013. Katie revealed that their new album was done awhile back but they just kept adding songs to it so now is the perfect time for the world to hear it.
"The heart [of Champion] really is about overcoming, and hope, and God being our champion and fighting for us. The song 'Champion' came to me about a year ago and I was just in my room and had been in a season of battling a lot of fear and anxiety in life, irrational stuff and rational stuff. Experiencing some disappointment and some stuff that was out of my control," Katie told The Christian Post. more >>
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly's recent assertion that slaves who worked on the White House were "well fed" and housed in "decent lodgings" has no historical proof to back it up, expert historians have told The Christian Post.
After first lady Michelle Obama asserted during her speech at the Democratic National Convention on Monday that she wakes up every morning in a "house that was built by slaves," O'Reilly explained on "The O'Reilly Factor" on Tuesday that Obama was right to say slaves worked on the construction of the White House along with immigrants, whites and free blacks.
O'Reilly, however, went on to add that slaves who helped build the White House while America's second President John Adams resided in what was then known as executive mansion were "well fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government." more >>
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is garnering controversy over his recent comments calling upon Russia to find and release Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton's deleted emails.
Right before the Democratic National Convention, Wikileaks released emails it took from Democrat leadership, which among other things showed party officials discussing ways to guarantee a Clinton victory in the primary season.
"Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing," stated Trump at a news conference held earlier this week. "I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press." more >>

God is at the core of America's founding political documents, says Pastor Wallace Henley and former politician Tom DeLay in their new book, Revival! Revolution! and Rebirth! which is part personal story, part American history, and part policy prescription grounded in the Judeo-Christian worldview.
Henley, who's the senior associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, where he has served for 14 years, is a former domestic policy adviser in the Nixon White House. DeLay, his co-author, served the 22nd district of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1985-2006, and was majority leader from 2003-2005.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards denounced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's comment calling pregnancy an "inconvenience."
In a speech delivered at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Richards spoke about the issues she had with Trump's stated views on women and abortion.
"Donald Trump has pledged to appoint justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade and undo decades of progress. His policies aren't just frightening — they're rooted in a disturbing worldview," said Richards. more >>
