Controversial Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed last year for not issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, asserted Monday night that the world is "living in the End Times" and warned that Christians will have to "battle" to hold on to their religious liberties.
Davis, the Rowan County clerk who caused a media firestorm over of her refusal to issue marriage licenses following last June's Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage, attended the Family Research Council State of the Family Address Monday night and told The Christian Post that intolerance toward traditional Christian beliefs in America will only "get worse."
"There is a lot of Bible prophecy that has to be fulfilled. Whether you acknowledge it or not, we are living in End Times," Davis said. "How soon will the Lord return? I don't know but definitely there are signs that we are in the end of times and there is a lot of stuff that has to happen to fulfill Bible prophecy. The word of God is infallible and so I suspect it will get a lot worse." more >>
After the Washington Redskins were eliminated from the NFL playoffs thanks to a 35-18 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, controversial Christian quarterback Robert Griffin III cleaned out his locker at Redskins Park, likely for the last time, on Monday and left behind a farewell note for the team.
Although Griffin's career with the Redskins got off to a hot start as he led Washington to the playoffs and an NFC East division championship in 2012, injuries and poor pocket play led to Griffin being benched and replaced with fellow Christian quarterback Kirk Cousins, who started every game for the Redskins in the 2015 season and broke a number of the franchise's single-season passing records.
As the Redskins are expected to release Griffin in the upcoming offseason and attempt to resign Cousins, whose contract is expiring this offseason, Griffin showed up Monday to clean out his locker at the Redskins' training facility in Ashburn, Virginia, in what is is likely his last appearance with the team. more >>
A 22,000-member Methodist megachurch in Kansas has hired a man who was found guilty of murder and then exonerated after 24 years behind bars to be its newest associate pastor after he completed seminary in December.
Although Darryl Burton grew up in the Baptist faith, he stopped going to church during his teen years, became increasingly disillusioned with religion and grew to be a skeptic of God. As Burton distanced himself from the church, his grandmother warned him that "one of these days, boy, you are going to need Jesus. I hope you remember to call on Him."
While Burton didn't think much of his late grandmother's words at the time, those words rang through his head as he sat for two decades in prison after he was convicted in 1985 for a murder he didn't commit. more >>
In a marriage there should be three people in the relationship, and both husband and wife should be more in love with the third party than they are with each other. That third party is God.

Fileta says loving Christ more than your spouse should be the goal of every couple, and can result in a stronger marriage. more >>
