The Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans has called on the Nigerian government to end the growing slaughter of Christians at the hands of radical Islamists in the country, arguing that such a massacre should not be the Christians' "portion in Jesus' name."
"Whatever the federal government is doing, if any, is either too slow or insignificant compared with the reoccurrence of the killings; the federal government needs to step up and take bold actions to give members of the Christian community in the country a sense of security and belonging," said Pastor Ade Oyesile, executive director of CANAN, in a statement.
"We MUST all work hard to avoid these sectarian killings which in our very eyes have made countries embroiled in it to become failed nations. That should not be our portion in Jesus Christ name." more >>

God is at the core of America's founding political documents, says Pastor Wallace Henley and former politician Tom DeLay in their new book, Revival! Revolution! and Rebirth! which is part personal story, part American history, and part policy prescription grounded in the Judeo-Christian worldview.
Henley, who's the senior associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, where he has served for 14 years, is a former domestic policy adviser in the Nixon White House. DeLay, his co-author, served the 22nd district of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1985-2006, and was majority leader from 2003-2005.
First Baptist Church Dallas megachurch pastor Robert Jeffress said in a sermon that unlike humans, animals have no spirits, and at the same time predicted that the majority of people are going to end up in hell, separated from God.
"Solomon says in Ecclesiastic 3:19-21, 'Here's how we're different. The animal has no spirit, but man has a spirit that descends to Heaven even after he dies,'" Jeffress told the audience in his message.
"That's how we're different from the animals," he insisted. more >>
