Evangelist Ray Comfort is set to release his apologetic film "The Atheist Delusion" this Friday, and in an interview with Hemant Mehta of "The Friendly Atheist" blog, said that he is convinced Hell is a very real place that people are in danger of ending up in.
When asked in the interview how he would judge the success of the film, Comfort responded: "I believe with every ounce of my being that Hell is a very real place. I know that is offensive and that it almost always brings scorn with it. It was Penn Jillette who asked how much we would have to hate someone if we believed that Hell was real and didn't warn him," he said, referring to his conversation with the atheist author. Comfort added: "So with that thought in mind, what is 'success' to me with this movie? I'm not sure that I can adequately answer that. If you were a firefighter trying to save 10 people from death and managed to save two, is that a success?"
The evangelist remarked that he has been preaching to atheists for the past 40 years, and is used to his films and videos being picked apart by people who disagree with him. more >>
Does God get mad at Christians who stop tithing to their church due to a job loss or because they're struggling financially?
A woman recently asked the Rev. Billy Graham if she and her husband were still expected to give money to their church after he was laid off and only able to find part-time work.
Graham responded that even a small amount of giving is acceptable, because tithing and charity should not be viewed as "a way to make God happy with us." more >>
WASHINGTON – Multi-Dove award nominee Christine D'Clario hit the stage last Saturday representing the Latino community at Together 2016, and said she believes everyone can see past racial differences if they focus on Jesus.
D'Clario is of Italian, German, Irish, Puerto Rican, and Dominican descent. She believes her multi-ethnic background gives her a wide perspective and helps her understand the racial conflicts currently happening in America.
"I know what it is to be in a blended community and I know what it is to be marginalized for not fitting in perfectly with one area or the other. But what I've learned from that is to find the commonalities and to try and focus on what unites us more," D'Clario told The Christian Post during a Q&A session. more >>
Republican presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump recently spoke the praises of famed Christian quarterback and Nathan Fillion lookalike contest winner Tim Tebow.
The Donald commended the football star and philanthropist, who recently gained headlines for carrying 500 pounds of medical supplies across the Amazon to benefit a struggling orphanage.
"Let me tell you, I love Tim Tebow. Tebow is really a guy, I mean a really great guy. Ever been around him? I have. And you know what? He's great," said Trump. more >>
WASHINGTON — Contemporary Christian singer Lauren Daigle urged millennials to combat fear and hatred with love in a message at Together 2016 at the National Mall on Saturday, and hopes they left feeling empowered to seek God's wisdom wherever their mission field is: at school, work and in their communities.
"The word empower is something that kept coming up in my heart," Daigle told The Christian Post during a Q&A on Saturday. "If we show people that fear isn't actually the place that we have to surrender to, fear isn't actually the thing that we have to answer to, but instead it's going in and loving people."
"It's going into the places that are dangerous and saying, 'OK God, I'm going to partner with you in this mission to go after that person who can potentially harm me.' Or to go after the homeless and say, 'I'm going to love you,'" Daigle shared. more >>
Russia's so-called "anti-extremism" law that restricts evangelism and missionary activities went into effect on Wednesday, and religious freedom advocacy groups say they are starting to assess the impact it will have on Christians in the country.
"For Christian advocates inside the country, there are challenges and risks," the American Center for Law and Justice's Gene Kapp said in a statement to The Christian Post on Thursday.
"Our team at the Slavic Centre for Law and Justice [ACLJ's Moscow affiliate that has argued against the law] is in the process of evaluating and analyzing the impact of the new directives. They are also preparing a webinar to provide critical advice and analysis for the Christian community on this vital issue. Details and timing are still being worked out. We will stand with them and assist in any way possible." more >>
