A North Carolina school district that was planning to enact rules on transgender usage of public facilities that violated state law is putting these plans on hold.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools announced Thursday that they were halting the implementation of a policy that would allow students to use the restrooms and locker rooms of their chosen gender identity rather than their biological sex.
School Superintendent Ann Clark said in a statement that the decision was influenced by U.S. Supreme Court's decision earlier this week to put a stay on a ruling that favored a female transgender student suing a Virginia school district to allow her to use the men's room. more >>
When wondering about the future, people should put their trust in God and not the words of fortune-tellers, says the Reverend Billy Graham.
In a recent advice column, the 97-year-old evangelist received a question from a person about wanting to know what the future holds.
"If God knows what's going to happen in the future, why doesn't He go ahead and tell us? I've tried astrology and things like that so I could discover the future, but I no longer think they can be trusted. Is God any better?" asked the person. more >>
A Christian flag that was removed earlier this year from a Tennessee school board meeting room flies again inside the chambers thanks to the actions of a local church group.
In January, the Unicoi County School Board of Education voted to remove a Christian flag from its chambers and donate it to the local Unicoi County Ministerial Association.

The small number of differences within various ancient copies of the Holy Bible do not change the truth of the Gospel message, says Pastor John Piper.

The Rev. Billy Graham says if he had to name the most convincing evidence for God's existence, it would be none other than Jesus Christ.
In his nationally syndicated advice column published on Tuesday, the 97-year-old evangelist was asked to provide one convincing piece of evidence to prove that God exists.
"I grew up in a religious family, but I outgrew all that years ago, and now I don't believe in God. Can you give me even one reason — just one — why I should believe in God?" the person asked. more >>
Christians in Russia have said they are determined to preach the Gospel and fulfill the Great Commission despite tough new laws signed by President Vladimir Putin that ban evangelism outside of churches.
The Slavic Centre for Law and Justice, an affiliate of the American Center for Law and Justice, said a new manner of carrying out missionary work in Russia will have to be established.
The law bans all missionary activities in residential areas and requires Christians who want to share their faith with others, even on the internet, to obtain authorization documents from a religious association. It also imposes a fine of $75 to $765 if the violator is a Russian citizen, and a fine of up to $15,265 in case of an organization, while foreigners would be deported, The Christian Post reported last month. more >>
