The Rev. Billy Graham says if he had to name the most convincing evidence for God's existence, it would be none other than Jesus Christ.
In his nationally syndicated advice column published on Tuesday, the 97-year-old evangelist was asked to provide one convincing piece of evidence to prove that God exists.
"I grew up in a religious family, but I outgrew all that years ago, and now I don't believe in God. Can you give me even one reason — just one — why I should believe in God?" the person asked. more >>
A historic Florida megachurch that has seen a large decline in membership over the past few years is considering selling off a portion of its property.

Several notable Christian and conservative commentators are pushing back against renowned theologian Wayne Grudem, whose 5,300-word defense of Donald Trump has gone viral, with some saying the move justifies a "wicked deed."
Because of the theological weight Grudem carries in the evangelical world — he is a professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary and served as the general editor of the English Standard Version Study Bible — some see this as particularly egregious in light of the Republican presidential nominee's public mockery of a Muslim family whose son was killed in combat in Iraq.

An Illinois judge will allow for a lawsuit to proceed against the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago over their decision to fire a choir director who's in a gay marriage.
The archdiocese recently filed a motion to dismiss a suit by Colin Collette, a former music director at Holy Family Catholic Community who was fired because he married a man, which is a violation of the Church's employment policy and Church doctrine.
U.S. District Court Judge Charles Kocoras, however, rejected the archdiocese's motion to dismiss and will allow the suit to go forward, according to the Chicago Tribune. more >>
Pastor Donnie McClurkin is lashing out at Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly and calling for him to be fired from the network for saying that slaves who helped build the White House were "well fed" and housed in "decent lodgings."
In response to first lady Michelle Obama's speech at the Democratic National Convention last Monday in which she reflected on waking up every morning in a "house that was built by slaves," O'Reilly said on "The O'Reilly Factor" 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, added 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 >>
