Mormon political commentator Glenn Beck has said that he agrees with Southern Baptist ethicist Russell Moore in his assertion that the divide among evangelicals caused by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will take longer to recover from than the televangelist scandals of the 1980s.
"It saddens me that our fellow Christian leaders don't see the long lasting effect here," Beck, who has been highly critical of Trump, said in a Facebook post on Monday.
"I agree with the evangelical leader in the interview when he says this will be harder to overcome than the televangelist scandals in the 80s. I pray he is wrong but fear he is correct. We are going to need all hands on deck - ALL PEOPLE of real faith," he added. more >>
God wants Christians to "get in shape" physically so they can be used for His purposes, says Saddleback Church Pastor Rick Warren.
In an entry on Warren's Daily Hope devotional on Tuesday titled, "Why God Wants You to Get in Shape," the best-selling author explained that God wants believers to "get in shape," and quotes 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, which reads: "Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body."
"How do you do that? How do you honor God with your body? Real simple: You take care of it," wrote Warren, adding that more >>
Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, has expressed sorrow and concern over the shooting death of Terence Crutcher.
Last Friday, Crutcher, a 40-year-old unarmed African-American man, was shot by a Tulsa, Oklahoma, police officer.
Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore told The Christian Post in an interview that President Barack Obama is "very receptive" to ideas on prison reform that are being advanced by a coalition of conservative and liberal activists.
The leading ethicist for the Southern Baptist Convention attended a meeting last Thursday with President Obama, along with about a dozen others including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, and leaders from both conservative and liberal groups.
"It was pretty evenly divided between people who would be more associated with the right and people who would be more associated with the left," said Moore. more >>
Unemployed men often face a deeply spiritual struggle, and as they endure the hardship that comes with sudden unemployment, one Christian leader is encouraging churches to do more to provide short-term monetary assistance.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal called the distressingly high numbers of persistently unemployed men a "quiet catastrophe," noting that the United States is now home to roughly 7 million men ranging in age from 25 to 54, "the traditional prime of working life," who are unemployed.
"Often a man who is unemployed feels not only economic stress but a sense of confusion about who he even is," wrote Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, on his website Monday. more >>
Russell Moore is blasting the notion that children are a burden in response to a recent National Public Radio feature arguing that the way to protect kids from environmental disaster is to not have them in the first place.
Writing on his website Tuesday, Moore noted that he once muttered "we use organic birth control" in response to a scowling woman at Whole Foods who, by the look on her face, disapproved of his five kids.
The belief that children are a tax on the earth's resources and, therefore, something to be avoided is not new, particularly as dire predictions of impending catastrophes happen with notable frequency on the political landscape. more >>
