When Tina Campbell and Teddy Campbell faced the possibilities of a broken marriage, the YouVersion Bible app helped them revive it and their lives.
Tina, one-half of the Grammy Award winning gospel music duo Mary Mary with sister Erica Campbell, insists that the popular Bible app saved her marriage.
"I'd like to think that this app saved my life because my physical Bible was complicated for me. Alone it was a source of frustration because I didn't get it," Tina said in a video for YouVersion. "But when I picked up the app and there were translations that made things more plain I did get it. And what I got was life giving." more >>
Harvest Christian Fellowship Senior Pastor Greg Laurie has advised a Christian woman married to a non-believer that she shouldn't be trying to convert her husband through all-day sermons, but should instead show him what a real Christian life is like through love.
Laurie took to a Facebook video on Tuesday to answer the question: "I'm married to a non-believer. Can you give me any advice on how to handle him?"
The megachurch pastor admitted that the woman has her work cut out for her, as such marriages are "not an easy thing." more >>
A Seventh-day Adventist lay minister who says he was fired by Georgia's Department of Public Health after officials were assigned to watch and review the content of his sermons, says he will not comply with the state's request that he hand over his sermons for review by state attorneys.
As previously reported, Dr. Eric Walsh, a leading health expert who was appointed to President Obama's Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDs, was hired by the state agency in early May 2014 and was scheduled to begin working in June 2016.
However, when officials at the DPH learned that Walsh's conservative views on marriage had been met with protests from LGBT activists when he was selected as a commencement speaker at Pasadena City College, the agency decided to launch an investigation into Walsh's preaching and a week later, DPH asked Walsh to submit copies of his sermons. more >>
Among the most bitterly contested of issues the next president will undoubtedly influence are the legal rights surrounding the institution of marriage which in the last few years has been significantly redefined.
As a result of the June 2015 Supreme Court ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized same-sex marriage nationwide, some commentators have said such a decision represents the final nail in the coffin for social conservatives committed to upholding the historic, traditional understanding of marriage and an unmitigated victory for the Sexual Revolution.
But the current presidential platforms continue to show a stark contrast between what the two sides in American politics advocate for and believe. more >>
A conservative Christian couple from Northern Ireland who recently lost their appeal against a ruling that deemed their refusal to make a cake that read "support gay marriage" to be discriminatory, have said their faith in God remains unshakable and those who accuse them of homophobia do not understand their argument.
"We're disappointed with the way it went. They didn't consider how much our conscience affects us as Christians, in how we run our business, but we still believe that God is in control," Daniel McArthur of Ashers Baking Company said, according to Sky News.
He added that those who call them "homophobic" don't grasp their argument. more >>
WASHINGTON — White evangelical Protestants are more likely to hold a negative view of today's American culture than any other social demographic, an extensive new survey released by the nonpartisan Public Religion Research Institute has found.
The Washington-based PRRI, a nonprofit research firm, unveiled its 2016 American Values Survey at the Brookings Institution on Tuesday.
The survey, which is based on interviews with 2,010 randomly sampled adults from all 50 states between Sept. 1 and Sept. 27, finds that there is great divide when it comes to how different ethnic groups and social classes view the direction of America and the societal changes that have occurred since the 1950s. more >>
