Best-selling author and evangelical preacher Tony Campolo is defending the Red Letter Christians evangelical movement he helped found that gives the words of Jesus more authority than the rest of the Bible.
The movement takes its name from how some editions of the Bible put the words of Jesus in red lettering to distinguish them from the rest of the text.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Campolo explained that Red Letter Christians believe the "red letters are the most important part of the Scripture" because "Jesus raises the moral standard." more >>
Florida Pastor Paula White, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez are among the signatories of an open letter demanding that Hillary Clinton apologize for the "Christophobic" rhetoric found in emails among campaign staffers.
Earlier this month Wikileaks posted a large number of Clinton campaign emails, which among other things showed staff members of the campaign talking disparagingly about Catholics and evangelicals.
An advanced copy of the letter was sent to The Christian Post earlier this week and on Thursday a copy was sent that included a list of signatories. more >>
A member of Donald Trump's evangelical advisory council is explaining why he will no longer participate, having described the Republican nominee as "lecherous" and "worthless" in light of the lewd comments Trump made that surfaced Oct 7.
Unimpressed with Donald Trump's video apology that his campaign released Friday, Pastor James MacDonald of Harvest Bible Church emailed members of the council contending that Trump's 2005 remarks should not be dismissed as simply locker room talk. Until Trump demonstrated a true repentance he would refrain from participating in any advisory role, he said.
RICHMOND, Va. — Thousands of Christians converged on Virginia's capitol grounds Wednesday to pray for the nation at a rally held by the Rev. Franklin Graham and to declare that they will be voting for biblical principles in the upcoming Nov. 8 election.
According to organizers, approximately 8,200 people crowded the steep hill of the capitol grounds, singing and joining hands in prayer, as Graham held the second-to-last stop on his nationwide Decision America Tour.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Graham expressed amazement at the turnout for the hour-long rally, saying the numbers of attendees was "just incredible" and impressive "to have this many people come out here in the middle of a work day to pray." more >>
Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, has offered his interpretation of a debated biblical story in Exodus in which he assured believers that despite what some might claim, there are no contradictions in the Bible.
Laurie took to Facebook on Tuesday to explore the story of Pharaoh in the book of Exodus in the Bible, particularly passages that suggest it was God, but also Pharaoh himself, who hardened his heart in the face of the plagues on Egypt that punished Pharaoh and his people for their treatment of the Israelites.
"What's the deal, a person asks, about God hardening Pharaoh's heart in the book of Exodus? But then it says that Pharaoh hardened his heart. Is that a contradiction? No. It's two sides of the same coin," Laurie argued. more >>
A prominent African-American evangelical leader is saying this week that even if tapes emerge where Donald Trump is uttering racial slurs, as is rumored, the candidates' platforms matter more than the candidates' personalities.
In the aftermath of tapes surfacing on October 7 of Donald Trump's comments about groping women, the Sun (UK) and others are reporting that crew members from Trump's TV show "The Apprentice" say that other audio recordings of Trump exist that are "much worse."
Yet even as some leading evangelicals withdraw their support for Trump — perhaps most notably theologian Wayne Grudem who had previously argued that the Republican nominee amounted to a "morally good choice" — others are opting to vote based on the policies not the candidates themselves. more >>
