Evangelical leaders and policy groups have come together to launch the "Every Living Thing" campaign, which is centered on protecting animal welfare.
The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and The Clapham Group released on Wednesday the "Evangelical Statement on Responsible Care for Animals."
"We resolve to rule and treat all animals as living valued creatures, deserving of compassion, because they ultimately belong to God, because He has created them, declared them good, given them the breath of life, covenanted with them, and entrusted them to our responsible rule," reads the statement, in part, that was shared with The Christian Post. more >>
David Gregory, a renowned journalist and former host of the Sunday morning political news program "Meet the Press," was inspired to reconnect with his Jewish faith by former President George W. Bush, and he details that experience in his new book How's Your Faith? An Unlikely Spiritual Journey.
Gregory worked as the host of NBC's "Meet the Press" for over five years and was also a White House correspondent for the network from 2000-2008.
During that time he interviewed and built relationships with countless politicians, but Bush (43) had the biggest impact on Gregory's life after the accomplished host witnessed the former president's Christian faith in action. more >>
As secular culture continues to promote transgenderism, popularized by the transformation of Bruce Jenner into Caitlyn, a group of Christians counselors will be tackling transgender issues and how the church responds next month at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
"We wanted to do this conference because we saw that the issue of transgender was one that was getting a great deal of attention in the culture, but not understood well from a Christian perspective," said Association of Certified Biblical Counselors Executive Director Heath Lambert to The Christian Post.
"We want to inform Christians about a biblical perspective on this matter so that we are most equipped to show care to people who will be damaged by the current approach to this issue in our culture." more >>
Hundreds of Christian conservatives gathered in the blistering heat in Nashville on Constitution Day Thursday, to rally for religious freedom in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling and called on the state to uphold its definition of marriage as being a union between one man and one woman.
As a crowd of over 400 gathered for the "Stand in the Gap for Truth" rally hosted by the Tennessee Pastors Network outside the state's Legislative Plaza, a number of issues, from the Iran deal to same-sex marriage, were discussed by prominent Evangelicals and state lawmakers.
Among the speakers who participated in the event was the husband of jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, Joe Davis, the father of presidential candidate Ted Cruz, Rafael, Bishop E.W. Jackson and former Southern Baptists Convention Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission president Dr. Richard Land. more >>
As polling data suggests that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to attract the support of about a fifth of Evangelical voters, prominent Christian ethicist Russell Moore opined Thursday that Evangelicals and social conservatives who back the real estate mogul are defying their Christian morals.
In a Thursday op-ed for The New York Times, Moore, who is the president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, argued that Trump's campaign rhetoric is nothing more than "authoritarian lines with no principles, just audacity," and points out that Trump's attitude towards women and immigrants stand directly against Christian values.
"Donald J. Trump stands astride the polls in the Republican presidential race, beating all comers in virtually every demographic of the primary electorate. Most illogical is his support from evangelicals and other social conservatives," Moore wrote. "To back Mr. Trump, these voters must repudiate everything they believe." more >>
ORLANDO – The Church needs to talk more about sex, because the Bible teaches much about the subject, instead of avoiding hard issues like sexual brokeness and pornography addiction, says Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in North Carolina, on Saturday.
"We have got to get over the reticence to talk about sex and talk about what the Bible teaches about sex," declared Land at the 2nd Annual Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Summit in Orlando, "because the Bible teaches a great deal about sex."
Land called for an accurate assessment of where the Church is today on this issue and denounced Christians and those in ministry for avoiding the issue of sexual brokenness and pornography. more >>
