In repeated posts on Facebook, Christy Sheats, who described herself as a conservative Baptist, expressed her love for her daughters, Taylor and Madison, sometimes while quoting Scripture. She was nothing like the woman who gunned them down last Friday as they begged for their lives.
"Every good and perfect gift is from above. James 1:17. Today I am thankful for my two perfect gifts! They are very best friends — they make me so very proud to be their mother," wrote Christy of her two daughters, on her Facebook page in November 2014.
Last Friday as her husband, Jason, celebrated his 45th birthday in the couple's Texas home, Christy snapped and killed the daughters she loved so much to punish her husband, said Madison Davey, a close family friend, in an interview with local news station ABC 13. Christy was later shot dead by police. more >>
Evangelist Anne Graham Lotz has listed three "national sins" that she believes are prompting God to back away from America.
"I feel our nation is in a mess at every level, and it's a Romans 1 type of judgment, because God has abandoned us because we have abandoned Him. And I think He weeps as He backs away, because He is turning us over to ourselves," said Lotz, the daughter of world renowned evangelist Billy Graham, on DayStar's "Joni Table Talk" show.
Lotz talked about the importance of prayer and her latest book, The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, and advised Americans to follow the biblical example of Daniel and press through to God. more >>
Prominent conservative author and essayist Mary Eberstadt has released a new book that aims to show liberals of "reason" just how intolerant and incivil today's secularist political Left has become toward traditional religious beliefs on marriage, sex and abortion.
Eberstadt, the author of a number of books who has also been published in The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, National Review, First Things and other news outlets, released her new book, It's Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies, last week and spoke in Washington on Tuesday to discuss the main takeaways from her work.
"Today, as opposed to 40 years ago, [social issues] are no longer contested. They are regarded as settled. The progressive secularists side has chalked up victory after victory on cases involving school prayer, obscenity, abortion and same-sex marriage," Eberstadt told attendees at a lunchtime discussion at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday. more >>
The Rev. Bill Owens, the president of the Coalition of African American Pastors, spoke at the March for Marriage rally in Washington, D.C., blasting President Barack Obama for "deceiving America" by carefully timing his advocacy for same-sex marriage.
"When President Obama was running for president, I had some friends in the gay community who informed me that he was going to say that he was for marriage between a man and a woman in his first term to get elected but he would take the issue up in his second term, and that's what he did," Owens said at the rally, according to CNS News.
"He deceived America," the pastor said in his speech Saturday. "And you must fear no man. I fear no man. I got a lot of criticism, a lot of hate mail for opposing Obama." more >>
