Best-selling author and evangelical preacher Tony Campolo is defending the Red Letter Christians evangelical movement he helped found that gives the words of Jesus more authority than the rest of the Bible.
The movement takes its name from how some editions of the Bible put the words of Jesus in red lettering to distinguish them from the rest of the text.
In an interview with The Christian Post, Campolo explained that Red Letter Christians believe the "red letters are the most important part of the Scripture" because "Jesus raises the moral standard." more >>
First-century Jewish tradition labeled women as unreliable sources of information. Scripture, however, chronicled how Mary Magdalene and "The Other Mary" discovered Christ's empty tomb and spread news of His Resurrection.
Although the involvement of the women may have jeopardized belief in the news of Christ's Resurrection, Scripture recorded their participation — despite the negative stereotypes of the time — further proving that the Gospels remained true to what actually transpired — even if going against long-held traditions.
In his newly revised New York Times best-selling book The Case for Christ: A Journalist's Personal Investigation of the Evidence for Jesus, Christian apologist Lee Strobel says that the millenniums-old account of the Resurrection of Christ is further bolstered by the fact that the Gospel writers were committed to accuracy in recording strictly what occurred regarding the Resurrection — even if the details they recorded hurt their story. more >>
As American secular society becomes increasingly hostile toward Christians, many are asking if the culture war has already been lost or if they should keep fighting, refusing to yield to the siren song of premature withdrawl in a war that is not yet lost.
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday, Dr. Richard Land, president of the seminary, said Christians are called to be the salt and light of the world, and should resist any temptation to believe that because everything has already been predetermined, God will not hold believers accountable for their actions.
To emphasize his point, Land read a quote from Martin Castro, chairman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, who issued a report in which he claimed that "religious freedom" and "religious liberty" are code words for "intolerance." more >>

America's fall away from God has more to do with sex than unbelief in Christianity, according to Christian author and speaker Frank Turek.
If professed atheists are challenged with the question, "If Christianity were true would you become a Christian?" Turek believes that more often than not it would show that the real reason many atheists deny God is not so much because of a lack of evidence that God exists, but it would reveal a desire to pursue sexual freedom outside the confines of Christian morality.
Speaking at the Southern Evangelical Seminary's 23rd annual National Conference on Christian Apologetics at Calvary Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Friday, Turek explained how sex has been resurrected as a new religion in America and it is driving what he agrees is an "erotic revolt" against Christian values. more >>
Award-winning singer Natalie Grant reveals in her new book, Finding Your Voice, that accepting who God made her to be and walking in that freedom instead of trying to be relevant is something she's now addicted to.
While she never thought about writing a book until evangelical publishing company Zondervan approached her with the idea, which she initially declined, after a few days God began to give her a vision of what He wanted her to write about, which led to Finding Your Voice. Grant said she wrote the book to help others "find their God-given voice" in a world that's filled with noise and compromise.
The Seattle, Washington, native said many people have mistaken the book for being about singing or the music industry, but it's actually about finding one's own voice and purpose. more >>
