Evangelist Pastor Greg Laurie said he believes that every Christian's personal testimony is significant whether their story of coming to know Jesus Christ is less "radical" than another person's story or not.
"How did you come to know Jesus Christ? That is your testimony," Laurie, the leader of Harvest Ministries and pastor of Harvest churches in Southern California, writes in his blog posted Friday. "Some stories [may] be more radical than others, but every testimony is significant."
Laurie shared an email letter from a former member of gang known for its extreme violence. The man came to Christ at a Harvest Crusade more than 22 years ago. more >>
A judge will decide who has the right to the title of Bishop for the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, which broke away from The Episcopal Church over theological differences.
U.S. District Judge C. Weston Houck heard oral arguments Thursday over the Rev. Charles vonRosenberg's effort to halt the Rev. Mark Lawrence's usage of the title. The Rev. Lawrence presently heads the theologically conservative South Carolina Diocese, which broke away from The Episcopal Church over its support for homosexuality and treatment of Lawrence.
The Rev. vonRosenberg presently heads the Episcopal Church in South Carolina, the name given to those Episcopalians in the Diocese who want to remain with the national church. VonRosenberg has sued Lawrence over usage of the title of bishop, arguing that Lawrence renounced this title when he opted to leave The Episcopal Church in January. more >>
Kylie Bisutti, the model that ended her career with Victoria's Secret because it conflicted with her faith, launched a Christian clothing line this week.
The 23-year-old gave up her modeling career last February saying she wanted to become a "Proverbs 31 wife and mother."
Bisutti's decision was chronicled in her tell-all memoir "I'm No Angel," but today, the former model is still hard at work trying to spread God's word. more >>
Chris Tomlin is celebrating the recent RIAA Gold certifications of his 2010 album And If Our God Is For Us... and his 2009 Christmas album Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship.
And If Our God Is For Us... won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album in 2012 and Glory In The Highest: Christmas Songs of Worship peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Holiday albums chart.
"I'm so honored to celebrate these two Gold records. It takes an incredible team! My name may be on the plaque, but I know all the work that goes in to it from many, many people and I am so grateful. I am honored to write songs for the Church. Long after Gold records fade, record labels fade and the earth fades, the Church will stand. I am so humbled to be a part of that Church," Tomlin said at a Christian music event in Atlanta, Ga. more >>
The "Fittest Man on Earth" is 26, stands at 5 feet, 9 inches, weighs 195 pounds, and is on fire for Jesus.
"I put Christ first and everything else fell into place," Rich Froning, Jr., who took his third victory in the 2013 CrossFit games earlier this year, told The Christian Post in a Tuesday interview. In June, he released a memoir, First: What It Takes To Win, where he shared "the secret to his own success both in and out of the gym": his faith.
Froning hasn't always won these competitions, however, and he hasn't always put Christ first. In the 2010 games, he fell short, and realized that he needed God's strength to win the prize. more >>
