NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, has been accused of censoring religious speech among its Christian employees, including banning the name Jesus.
The JSC reportedly told employees last year that the name "Jesus" could not appear in newsletters pertaining to the Praise and Worship Club that meets during the lunch hour.
"NASA has a long history of respecting the religious speech of their employees, including defending, in court, the astronauts who read the biblical account of creation while orbiting the moon. That tradition should continue here," said Liberty Institute Senior Counsel Jeremy Dys to The Christian Post in an interview Tuesday. more >>
Outspoken Christian NFL star Russell Wilson issued a touching tribute to Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning after the 39-year-old future Hall of Famer won his second Super Bowl Sunday night in what many believe could have potentially been his final game.
The 27-year-old Wilson, the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks who is notorious for his dedication to his Christian faith, took the The Player's Tribune, a media website that provides professional athletes an outlet to write on their experiences and reflections, to thank Manning for all that he has done for the sport and for him personally.
In an op-ed published on Monday titled "If This IS It," Wilson stated that if Manning's last game was indeed Super Bowl 50, there was one moment that he will remember the most from Manning's illustrious career. more >>
"Starry Night" singer Chris August married his fiance Katelin Cummings on Saturday, a day that he is pegging the "best day" of his life after salvation.
Rafael Cruz, the pastor father of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, detailed on a radio program last Friday how he spent hours arguing with a pastor on the plausibility of Christianity before he broke down and surrendered his life to Christ that night.
It is no secret that in December 1974, Cruz, who was a businessman in the oil industry in Canada at the time and was struggling with deep alcohol issues, left his wife and 3-year-old son, Ted, to go Houston, Texas, and continue his life there without his family.
In an appearance on Michael Brown's radio show "The Line of Fire" on Friday, Cruz, the author of the new book, A Time for Action: Empowering the Faithful to Reclaim America, detailed how he was led to Christ during his time in Houston. Cruz also described the monumental confrontation with Pastor Gaylen Wiley that forever changed his life and, ultimately, the lives of his wife and son. more >>
Presbyterian Church (USA) is expecting to see a loss of over 400,000 members between 2015 and 2020, according to a reported internal document.
PCUSA's Office of the General Assembly and Presbyterian Mission Agency Board Executive Committee held a meeting last Wednesday when projected losses were discussed, according to a recent account by the conservative Presbyterian publication The Layman.
Members of large churches are less involved than those of smaller congregations, according to a recent study from Duke University.
Research published last week by the American Sociological Association's journal Socius found, according to its abstract, "a negative relationship between size and the probability of attendance for Conservative, Mainline, and black Protestants and for Catholics in parishes larger than 500 attenders."
"The addition of control variables does not change these patterns. These results support the theory that group cohesion lies at the heart of the size-participation relationship in churches," continued the abstract. more >>
