Outspoken Christian rapper Lecrae is making waves once again by voicing his thoughts on race relations in America. This time the music artist is taking on other Christians who believe he shouldn't use his platform to talk about race, and instead focus solely on spreading the Gospel.
In an Instagram message posted last Thursday, Lecrae included a photo that read: "I Won't Keep Calm I Have a Black Son," and spoke directly to Christians who try to steer clear of addressing the nation's growing racial tensions.
"Christians saying that 'preaching the gospel is all we need' ignore how sin affects infrastructures and societal systems," Lecrae wrote. more >>
Is Martin Luther King, Jr.'s dream turning into a nightmare?
America has a deep, racial divide. Despite having elected a black man to the highest office of the land, the divide gets worse. Some argue that Obama adds to the divide.
We've all been shocked by recent events in Dallas, Minnesota, and Baton Rouge, and our prayers go out for all the survivors of the victims of the recent violence related to racial conflicts. more >>
As Republican Party leaders met this week in Cleveland to draft and approve amendments to the party's platform, many headlines have surfaced about the proposed additions.

Below are seven takeaways from the reported draft of the Republican Party platform that are of particular interest to conservative Christians. The official 2016 Republican Party Platform will not be adopted until next week at the Republican National Convention. more >>

Tim Tebow doesn't typically address rumors, but after he returned home from a trip to the Philippines to learn The New York Times was reporting that he was slated to speak at the Republican National Convention, he decided to quash the claims.
"I wake up this morning to find out I'm speaking at the Republican National Convention," Tebow said in a video posted on Instagram. "It's amazing how fast rumors fly. And that's exactly what this is: a rumor."

The current atmosphere on the streets of Dallas, Texas is reminiscent of 9/11, another event where premature death permeated the air. Standing in the front as DART Commissioner Brown pointed everyone to the good book, I heard him describe how the officers and their families will always be loved. It was an amazing memorial.
While in Dallas, I also attended a meeting with Deputy Mayor Erik Wilson, judges, police officers, pastors, and Black Lives Matter members. People were asked how they felt and the police said, "Scared."
It is a sad and dangerous time. Police are fearing for their lives while people are still gathering to make sure attention doesn't wane on the recorded deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. You can feel and see the uneasiness of the officers in Dallas, who wonder if there is going to be a copycat killer. more >>
