Editor's note: This editorial is one of two follow-up articles to a CP staff editorial laying out two options for Evangelicals in this year's challenging presidential election — either vote for Trump or cast a protest vote. In this editorial, CP Politics and Opinion Page Editor Dr. Napp Nazworth argues Evangelicals should cast a protest vote instead of supporting Trump. A second editorial, by CP Executive Editor Dr. Richard Land, argues that because of the dangers presented to the country and Evangelicals in particular by a Hillary Clinton presidency, evangelicals should reluctantly vote for Donald Trump
My fellow Evangelicals: Don't fall for the temptation to vote for Donald Trump.
The editors of The Christian Post recently explained why we, and Evangelicals in general, are split on whether to vote for Trump. Evangelicals shouldn't vote for the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, we argue, but the Trump option is more complicated. more >>
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says Hillary Clinton resorted to a "natural tendency" when she tried to pin the use of her private email server on former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
As reported by The New York Times, FBI notes handed over to Congress last Tuesday show that the Democratic presidential nominee told investigators looking into the use of her private email server while serving as secretary of state that it was Powell who advised her to use a personal email account.
Powell, who served as the head of the State Department from 2001 to 2005 under President George W. Bush, defended himself on Saturday during an event in New York. more >>
One of the world's leading Christian persecution watchdog groups has put together a petition to presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, decrying a "baffling silence" on the problem of persecution, and urging them to devise a plan of action for how to help.
Kristin Wright, director of advocacy at Open Doors USA, told The Christian Post in a phone interview that there has been a "baffling" silence by both Trump and Clinton, given that most Americans believe that the next American president should have a plan of action for addressing the persecution of Christians.
Two separate petitions, one addressed to Trump and one to Clinton, point to a recent Harris/Neilsen poll that shows three out of four Americans believe this is an important issue for the next president to address. more >>
A preschool in Missouri that was denied state funds to improve its playground because it's owned by a Lutheran church says the state's discrimination against the school is unconstitutional, as its attorneys file a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court.
Trinity Lutheran Church Learning Center of Columbia filed a lawsuit against the Department of Natural Resources after it rejected the school's application for a grant to take part in a program meant to improve the safety of playgrounds by using recycled tires as ground cover.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Alliance Defending Freedom senior counsel Erik Stanley said this case is particularly egregious given the secular nature of the program. more >>
Many Americans seem to be splintering into opposing factions when it comes to race: Black Lives Matter, Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter. In response, Christian rapper Lecrae, Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia) and Jeff Shinabarger, founder of Atlanta-based non-profit Plywood, recently engaged in a candid conversation that focused on race, non-violence, and love over hate.
Racial tension has been at an all-time high with the recent police shooting deaths of African Americans by white officers and the subsequent killings of white police officers by African Americans. Lecrae pointed out today's perceived civil rights injustices and the desire for immediate retribution, which often leads to more violence.
Yale Divinity School's Communications Director Tom Krattenmaker urges Christians not to vote for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but to follow Jesus' command to love him just like He teaches people to "love your enemies."
In a column published on Sunday in USA Today, Krattenmaker said that Jesus' command to "love your enemies" applies even to modern American politics.
"Does 'loving' one's political rivals mean ceding elections to them, or abandoning our own principles and policies to push theirs instead? Of course not," said Krattenmaker, author of the forthcoming book, Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower. more >>
