The day pastor Robert McKeehan of Community Bible Church in High Point, N.C., hanged himself in what local police have called an apparent suicide, he gave no clue, at least on social media, that he was a man getting ready to die.
His Twitter timeline for Friday, April 11, before he was pronounced dead in his home, revealed a man who was health conscious and had his signature sense of humor on full display.
Here is how his day went, according to Twitter. more >>
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal sister imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript paradoxically titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.
Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?
The book's author, Matthew Vines, is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda. more >>
Only days after Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.) was caught kissing a staffer in his district office, Republicans in Louisiana were calling on the freshman congressman to immediately resign. One question that many in Louisiana and in Washington are asking is if McAllister is being asked to resign, what about the Bayou State's own Sen. David Vitter?
In case your knowledge of political sex scandals has faded over the last decade or so, Vitter had his own troubles in 2007 when his name surfaced in the black book of an infamous D.C. Madam. Amazingly, Vitter got through the scandal by only acknowledging his involvement with the prostitution service as a "serious sin."
"I asked for and received forgiveness form God and from my wife in confession and marriage counseling," Vitter said after the scandal broke. more >>
His wife, two children and the entire spiritual flock of Pastor Robert McKeehan, 42, are now locked in grief after the leader of Community Bible Church in High Point, N.C., was found hanging in his home in an apparent suicide Friday, according to local police.
A report from the High Point Police Department acquired by The Christian Post Tuesday does not reveal many details about the incident, but confirms that the beloved pastor was pronounced dead in his High Point home after they were called in at 7:53 p.m.
"Upon our arrival we were informed that the listed offender [pastor] was found hanging and was unresponsive. Upon our investigation and first aid by EMS the listed subject was pronounced dead at 8:43 p.m. from an apparent self-manipulated hanging," said the report. more >>
A year ago, I transitioned from my staff position in a Nashville church to go full-time in serving the wider body of Christ. Writing regular news commentaries and hosting a weekly lecture series on the hot-button issues impacting our nation, my God-given assignment is to raise awareness and help awaken Christians to the "impending distress" (I Cor.7:26).
After four decades in ministry, God called me to say farewell to salary, pension and security guarantees. It's scary, but in light of our nation's rapidly decaying cultural landscape and what many perceive as church leaders succumbing to a "spiral of silence"-especially on issues of homosexuality, abortion and religious liberty-I don't believe I have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines anymore.
These words from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. speak to me daily: "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." more >>
Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring has filed a brief in support of two same-sex couples challenging the state's ban on same-sex marriage. Earlier this year, Herring refused to defend the state's same-sex marriage ban when it was legally challenged.
In his 79-page brief, Herring (D) argued that the U.S. Constitution determines same-sex marriage to be a fundamental right under due process and equal protection. He heavily referenced the 1967 Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia, a landmark case that invalidated the prohibition of interracial marriages.
Herring argued that the Loving case proves that the Fourteenth Amendment protects marriage as a fundamental right, even if the Framers of the U.S. Constitution may have not considered same-sex marriage when creating the amendment. more >>
