A Tennessee church's banners highlighting a sermon series titled "Naked Jesus" was vandalized by a man who tore it down in front of the lead pastor.
Heartsong Church, a congregation based in Cordova with an average weekly attendance of approximately 350, is currently having a sermon series called "Naked Jesus: The Bare Necessities for Life by God."

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 >>
In a sermon re-posted online, New York Times best-selling author Pastor Francis Chan answered critics who called the Cornerstone Community Church, which he and his wife founded, a cult.
We all would like to be part of the early church, as described in the book of Acts, Chan, the founder of Radius International and then teaching pastor of Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley, California, said in the message, posted last week by SermonAudio.com but originally from April 2009.
Chan read out Acts 4:29-35: "Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your Word with great boldness. 'Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.' After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the Word of God boldly. more >>
Megachurch pastor and author Erwin Raphael McManus deals with one of life's toughest questions, is Jesus the only way, and what about those who have never heard of Him?
In a re-podcast on the website of Mosaic, the church in Los Angeles, California, where McManus is the pastor, he read out questions sent to him by people from around the U.S. and Australia.
At the heart of the questions were two issues. How can we possibly conceive the fact that Jesus is the only way to God when the world is predominantly Hindu, Buddhist or Muslim? And what about those who have never heard of Christ but have lived a moral or just life? more >>
Several influential evangelicals have formed a new group to distinguish themselves and their approach to politics from Christian leaders who are actively supporting Donald Trump for president.
In a bewildering election process where many Christians are expressing distaste for both major candidates and amid much conversation about the declining role of Christians in shaping politics, Public Faith, whose byline is "A Christian Voice for the Common Good" aims to strike a more even-handed tone with the release of its website Monday.
Although decidedly conservative on social issues, the group tilts left on climate change, and acknowledges the presence of racial injustices in American society and the systemic problems that further them. more >>
God made every human being to please Him and to not be defined by others, says Saddleback Church pastor and best-selling author Rick Warren.
"Our purpose is to please God, not people. He alone examines the motives of our hearts," reads 1st Thessalonians 2:4b., Warren shared in a devotional on Monday.
Warren said the scripture shows "success in life is being exactly who you were created to be and nothing more." more >>
