God, by His design, has laid out the best way — mentally, physically and emotionally — to have a sexual relationship, and that doesn't include homosexuality and gay marriage, according to Alan Robertson, a former pastor and eldest son of reality TV star Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame.
"I've had the same conversation with folks who have same-sex attraction as I have with men and women who are living together. I tell them all the same thing: God has a design and a plan for your life, and this is what He's laid out as the best way to have a sexual relationship on Earth, biblically."
He continued, "I put it in the context that anything outside of what I believe the Bible teaches about the design for marriage and the design for a husband and wife to have a sexual relationship that's exclusive to them [isn't biblical, and isn't part of God's design]." more >>
A website that depicts Jesus Christ as a modern tattoo artist has argued before an appeals court that a Texas school district discriminated against it when it rejected an ad for a high school stadium.
Little Pencil Ministries, which oversees the website tattoojesus.org, filed a lawsuit last year against the Lubbock Independent School District over not being allowed to run an ad on a jumbotron display at a stadium.
Arguments were heard Tuesday in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals between Little Pencil and Lubbock, with the former being represented by the religious freedom legal group, Alliance Defending Freedom. more >>
Outspoken Christian NFL player Benjamin Watson recently issued a powerful Facebook post writing about the Islamic State and the rise of Christian persecution throughout the world, asserting that all Christians should be ready to die for upholding their faith in Jesus Christ.
"The images keep flooding our timelines and news feeds. Men being burned alive or beheaded by masked assassins. Stories of families on the run, fleeing their homes while they are pillaged and burned," Watson's Saturday Facebook post explained. "Their testimonies hold a familiar chord: 'Convert, Pay or Die!'"
Watson, an 11-year NFL veteran who's a tight end for the New Orleans Saints, wrote that although extremist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram in Nigeria have risen to prominence and are out to destroy Christianity, believers should never deny Christ in order to save their lives. more >>
A former Republican congressional committee counsel predicts that the Supreme Court will legalize same-sex marriage in coming months, but does not believe that decision will change the Church.
"I think the Supreme Court is probably going to come down on this 7-to-2, and I have every reason to believe that they will legalize same-sex marriage based on what we call the equal protection clause and the precedent of Loving vs. Virginia 1967," former attorney Sophia Nelson, author of The Woman Code, recently told The Christian Post, referring to the landmark civil rights decision that struck down miscegenation laws.
The Christian author and award-winning journalist supports traditional marriage, however, she said that while Christians have the right to exercise their religious liberties, they must also respect the law and leave the judgment to Jesus. more >>
The Jewish Festival of Purim, celebrated this year on March 5th, "commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia (modern day Iran) from Haman's plot 'to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a single day.'" Instead, Queen Esther, a Jewess, stepped forward and bravely saved her people.
Tuesday on Capitol Hill, we heard about another grave threat to the Jewish people. As I sat in the House Chamber and listened to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, I heard a leader who respectfully but urgently conveyed a single, compelling message, the same message Esther gave to the Persian King Ahasuerus: the Jewish people are under threat, and need immediate help.
This was not, contrary to some press reports, a partisan event. Seated in front of me were former Democratic U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman and former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich. These men are divided over many things, but united in their understanding that the American-Israel alliance must never be compromised. more >>
Just when it seemed the minds of Islamic State militants couldn't get any more twisted and barbaric, ISIS fighters in Mosul allegedly chopped up the body of a Kurdish prisoner and fed his remains to his mother in a rice dish when she arrived at the group's headquarters to demand his release.
Yasir Abdulla, a British security guard who traveled to Iraq to help defeat ISIS when he learned that the militant group was within 6 miles of his home village in Kurdistan, told of the elderly Kurdish woman's horrific experience in an interview with The Sun upon his return to the U.K. last week.
"I hate ISIS because of what happened to an old Kuridsh woman from a nearby tribe," Abdulla asserted. more >>
