Korn's Brian "Head" Welch says he finds it tiring to invite people to know Jesus — like the transgender men and women he ministered to at a July 31 rock concert — when religious people chase them away with harsh words.
"I'm begging you, [Christians], please stop," Welch said last week on his Facebook page.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Monday, Welch, 46, shared more of what happened that night and the fruit that has come of it. Though Welch said he speaks in churches from time to time, God continues to open doors for him to witness to hurting people in unconventional settings outside its four walls. more >>
In an op-ed published by New Scientist magazine, evolutionary biologist Josh Rosenau accuses the recently opened Ark Encounter theme park in Kentucky of promoting the idea that the "obliteration of all humans" is "praiseworthy" and warned schools not set up field trips to the exhibit.
It's no secret that some evolutionists and scientists have been highly critical of Answers in Genesis' $100 million, 155-meter-long ark, which opened to the public earlier this summer and is "intended to bring the Ark of Noah's day to life."
Rosenau, the programs and policy director at the U.S. National Center for Science Education, wrote in the op-ed that not only is the Ark Encounter deluging visitors with "misinformation," but it is also subtly working to indoctrinate its visitors as well. more >>

The shirt read "Jesus died for you … Trump lives for you." more >>
Sam Rohrer, president of the American Pastors Network and former Pennsylvania lawmaker, was reported by media as saying in a radio show that it is not biblical to have women in positions of government and therefore Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton is unfit to be president. But he has clarified that he didn't say that.
Clinton is not fit to be president "for many reasons… (But) no, it's not unbiblical for a woman to be in a position of leadership in government," Rohrer, head of APN, said in an interview on Focus Today. But he added that he says that "with a caveat because God has an order for things, not because of superiority of one over the other. But because of order."
Rohrer was responding to what he was reported as saying in an earlier interview. more >>

Being stubborn can be a destructive character trait, says the Rev. Billy Graham, in response to a man who's not sure he wants to go to Heaven because he doesn't want to lose his freedom by having God tell him what to do.
In a recently published advice column, a person queried Graham about the concern he had about being a "control freak" and not wanting to give up his freedom.
