The Rev. Franklin Graham recently reiterated his remarks from earlier this year, calling on Christians in America to stand for biblical values despite social opposition.
In a column published in the July-August edition of Decision magazine, the head of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, declared that "Heaven is not for cowards!"
"Christians cannot ignore parts of God's Word because they are unpopular or cause division. Our commission is to proclaim Christ and all He stands for," wrote Graham. more >>
Advocates for behavior considered immoral by Christians who believe the Bible is God's inerrant word, have successfully used the idea of "love" to affirm homoerotic behavior, to redefine marriage and family, to justify pedophilia, and as theologian and pastor James Emery White recently pointed out, to justify assisted suicide.
The problem, White writes in his blog, Church & Culture, is that the "love" described to normalize these behaviors is "not the biblical idea of love."
"There is a new cultural apologetic that is fast becoming the go-to argument to ensure affirmation and approval of previously immoral activities," he writes. "And it is an argument taken straight from the Bible: Love." more >>
It's almost unbelievable how far we've drifted.
Newsweek magazine, on Dec. 27, 1982, in an article entitled, How the Bible Made America, had this revealing statement, "Historians are discovering that the Bible, perhaps even more than the Constitution, is our Founding document."
To understand the core values of a nation, one must simply look to the beliefs set forth during its conception. Judge for yourself how far we have drifted from the original intent of early Americans. Consider the following: more >>
A version of the Bible reported to be more "elegant" and easier to read in form than traditional versions has exceeded original sales expectations.

Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham has criticized NASA's efforts to search for extraterrestrial life, arguing that God has not created life anywhere outside the Earth, and that the search for such life is driven by "man's rebellion."
"I'm shocked at the countless hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent over the years in the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life," Ham wrote in a blog post for Answers in Genesis on Sunday.
"Of course, secularists are desperate to find life in outer space, as they believe that would provide evidence that life can evolve in different locations and given the supposed right conditions! The search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man's rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!" more >>
No certainty exists over the fate of an amendment brought before the regional bodies of Presbyterian Church (USA) that would redefine the denomination's marriage definition to include same-sex unions.
Last month, the largest Presbyterian denomination in the country voted in favor of a recommendation to change the official definition of marriage in the Book of Order from "a man and a woman" to "two people, traditionally a man and a woman."
Toya Richards, spokeswoman of the PC (USA) Office of the General Assembly, told The Christian Post that "we can't speculate on that." more >>
