Retired Manhattan family court Judge Judith Sheindlin, the plainspoken personality behind daytime television's iconic Judge Judy reality court show says she is "crazy about" GOP 2016 presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, but wants him to tone things down a bit to be considered "a real candidate."

After enduring a summer in which he filed for divorce from his wife after mutual episodes of adultery, Tullian Tchividjian, the grandson of the Rev. Billy Graham, says he is now getting the help he needs to heal.

"I know I've been quiet for a few months. I'm getting the help and healing and rest that my heart and body desperately needs. I just wanted you all to know that I'm doing really well, I'm surrounded by great people, I'm in a great church, and I have a great pastor, a great counselor, and great elders," wrote Tchividjian. more >>

Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has praised The Master's College for breaking off from the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities due to its insistence on a literal interpretation of Genesis.
"We are always thankful when we hear about Christian colleges and universities that take a firm and public stand on the book of Genesis, refusing to compromise with man's ideas about the past and our origins. These colleges are sadly far and few between," Ham said in his Answers in Genesis blog on Monday.
This week I've been preparing some lectures for my upcoming seminars in the DMin in Church Revitalization and Great Commission Leadership at Southeastern Seminary.

Below are eight of those characteristics. more >>
