A recently released poll found that a majority of Americans believe the federal government's treatment of the Little Sisters of the Poor is "unfair."
In a Marist Poll conducted for the Knights of Columbus, 53 percent of adults surveyed said that the birth control mandate accommodation given to the nuns was "unfair," versus 32 percent who found it "fair."
Uniformed police officers say they will be on hand to keep the peace at a Wisconsin high school Tuesday during a parent-led "Jesus Lunch" just in case tensions flare up between critics and supporters of the weekly event.
Every Tuesday during their lunch break hundreds of Middleton High School students attend a parent-led gathering at nearby Fireman's Park that includes Christian worship and discussion.
Chief Charles Foulke of the Middleton Police Department released a statement last Friday explaining that officers were going to be present at this week's luncheon. more >>
For some Christians it's been years since they've cracked open a Bible or carried one to church. While most are familiar with well-known biblical accounts of Moses parting the Red Sea, the extraordinary strength of Samson, or how David conquered Goliath, few build upon these basic Sunday school teachings, resulting in what one apologist calls "biblical illiteracy."
In a portion of his new book Unanswered, a volume intended to shed light on several hot-button topics that loom large within the Church, apologist and New Testament scholar Jeremiah Johnston addresses biblical illiteracy and Christians who know "just enough about the Bible to be dangerous."
"The Bible can be stripped down, vandalized, added to, taken away [from], and 95 percent of people in the Church would not even know you were doing it because they simply do not know the Bible," Johnston told The Christian Post earlier this month. more >>
Celebrity pastor Chad Veach is not letting life's circumstances keep him down. In his new book, Unreasonable Hope, the young minister uses his hardest life battle to encourage others to keep trusting God.
Veach and his wife, Julia, had their whole lives change in the course of a day when their 4-months-old daughter, Georgia, was diagnosed with lissencephaly, a rare, gene-linked brain malformation, also known as "smooth brain."
Since then, Georgia's seizure management has been the biggest struggle, at one point she was having 50 seizures a day. Although that's no longer the case, the couple still are facing a lot and are vowing to remain constant in their faith, ministry and family life. more >>
An evangelical professor and former president of Fuller Theological Seminary has argued that Mormons are possibly becoming more in line with Orthodox Christian belief.
Richard J. Mouw, a scholar and author who served as Fuller president for 20 years before retiring in 2013, wrote an essay for the publication First Things slated to be published in May.
Darrin Patrick, 46, who founded The Journey megachurch in St. Louis, Missouri, in 2002, was fired from his position as pastor this week for what his church describes as "deep historical patterns of sin." Patrick has also resigned from his position as vice president of the Acts 29 Network, which plants churches globally.
"Grievously, we need to share with you some very troubling news. In recent weeks, substantive allegations of pastoral misconduct arose against Pastor Darrin Patrick and were eventually confirmed," began church elders in a letter shared with members of The Journey family.
"This required that the board of elders place Pastor Darrin on immediate paid leave and begin a formal process of deeper investigation. The findings of this investigation and further confession from Pastor Darrin, combined with deep historical patterns of sin, led us to the heart-breaking decision to remove Pastor Darrin from office at The Journey and require him to step down from all internal and external leadership positions," the elders continued. more >>
