Beyonce took over the VMA stage in Madison Square Garden Sunday night with a 15-minute medley of her album, Lemonade. During the performance, the pop superstar took viewers along an artistic display of heartache and betrayal while featuring Christian language and symbolism.
The surprise performance started out with Beyonce surrounded by an illusion of flames and when the visual effects stopped she started her musical journey. The Texas native proceeded by performing "Pray You Catch Me," with a brief dance breakdown into "Hold Up."
Next she sang "Don't Hurt Yourself." In the middle of the song's lyrics, "When you love me, you love yourself. Love God herself," the words "God is God, I am not" flashed across the screen. more >>
Joshua Harris, the former lead pastor of Covenant Life Church, the founding church of Sovereign Grace Ministries in Gaithersburg, Maryland, is now apologizing to Christians he hurt when he advised against dating in his best-selling 1997 book, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, calling it a "huge mistake."
"Part of the reason this has been so hard for me is that I have so much of my identity tied up in these books. It's what I'm known for," Harris told writer Ruth Graham earlier this month in Vancouver, British Columbia, in a report for Slate.
"It's like, well, crap, is the biggest thing I've done in my life this really huge mistake?" asked Harris, who stepped down as lead pastor at Covenant Life last year to pursue graduate studies at the evangelical Regent College in British Columbia. more >>

In her new book, Christians Under Covers: Evangelicals and Sexual Pleasure on the Internet, University of Nebraska-Lincoln sociologist Kelsy Burke offers a small peek under the covers of the sex lives of evangelical Christians and her findings reveal a lot of kinky behavior, including "anal play."
The book, which reflects Burke's findings from a nearly two-year ethnographic study of 36 websites where tens of thousands of Christians have sought sexual guidance during the past decade, focused on couples who were heterosexual, married, monogamous and did not look at pornography. Website users concluded that an array of sexual activities qualified as "godly sex" that strengthens Christian marriage.
"The websites I study draw from popular Christian sex advice books (like those authored by the LaHaye's, Wheat's, Young's, Douglas Rosenau, Shannon Etheridge, Kevin Leman) to set the terms, as website creators and users see them, for 'godly sex,'" said Burke to The Christian Post on Thursday. more >>
