A pregnant woman who was recently fired by a Virginia church's daycare center for not setting a date for her wedding to the father of her unborn baby says she might take legal action.
Apryl Kellam was fired from her position at the chid development center just days after she said she received a raise on Jan. 7.
James Coalson, Kellam's fiancé and the father of her soon-to-be born child, told The Christian Post that they've been mulling the idea of seeking legal counsel after Staples Mill Road Baptist Church's firing for her violation of the center's employee handbook. more >>
Racial distinctions should not be rejected, but embraced. After all, God created the races with their distinctive backgrounds and cultures for a reason — so argues one Texas megachurch pastor who has spoken out for years about bridging race-related divisions.
Dr. Tony Evans, pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Church in Dallas, Texas, told The Christian Post in a recent interview that any talk of racial reconciliation should begin with "God's view of race."
"God created the races. He created different backgrounds and cultures. But He created them all to operate under His authority," Evans said. more >>
With Mike Huckabee leaving his Fox News show to consider another potential presidential run in 2016, the Southern Baptist pastor and former Arkansas governor has arguably become the the front runner to gain the Evangelical vote in what is expected to be a very crowded 2016 Republican primary. But will he be able to unite Evangelical donors and voters?
As the Washington Post points out, one of the things Huckabee should do to have a shot winning the Republican nomination is to "make a pitch for unity" among Evangelical voters to avoid having a split in the Evangelical vote like in the 2012 primary, when Evangelicals were split between former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and Texas Gov. Rick Perry which helped Mitt Romney win the nomination.
But compared to when Huckabee ran for president in 2008, the Republican field will likely feature more social conservatives that can draw the interest of Evangelicals. Some have already begun courting Evangelical influence in early primary states like Iowa. more >>
A prominent Southern Baptist Convention leader has denounced a front page Newsweek piece calling evangelical and fundamentalist Christians "God's frauds."
Dr. Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, posted an entry on his website Monday taking issue with Kurt Eichenwald's lengthy essay on the Bible.

WASHINGTON — God is graciously giving the Southern Baptist Convention a second chance to get it right on racism issues, Russell Moore offered while noting the growth in non-white Southern Baptists.
The fastest growing demographic groups in the SBC are blacks and Latinos, noted Moore, president of the SBC's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, in a Monday interview with The Christian Post.
The SBC was founded out of its support for slavery in a split with Northern Baptists prior to the Civil War. more >>
