Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has posted a list of the top five most worrisome trends he sees developing in American churches, identifying liberal pastors and youths rejecting Christianity as some of his biggest concerns.
"More watering down of the Word to accommodate our culture's lies. We're consistently seeing more and more churches compromising on God's Word in order to preach what is perceived by our culture as a loving and tolerant message (e.g., supporting gay 'marriage')," he wrote Tuesday about the first trend.
"But it's really a message that's loving and tolerant of sin but contrary to the Word of God, which should be our standard for morality (2 Timothy 3:16). Over the next year and beyond, I anticipate we will see more of 2 Timothy 4:3–4 coming true as many churches become places to satisfy 'itching ears' rather than places to satisfy a thirst for truth." more >>
An appeals court has ruled that watching pornography at a university library is not conduct protected by the First Amendment.
The Third District Court of Appeals for the state of Wisconsin ruled last week that the punishment for disorderly conduct given to David Reidinger for viewing porn at a library at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire was legal, despite claims that his actions were protected by the U.S. Constitution.
On Dec. 14, 2014, at the university's McIntyre Library, Reidinger was found to be viewing pornography at a computer next to some students attempting to study. more >>
Christian rapper DJ Cooley is sharing his testimony in a 6-minute video on YouTube in which he talks about his experiences in the hip-hop industry since the age of 15, and the moment that led him to fully seek God.
Cooley says that while he was partying and drinking during the week he was still going to church on Sundays but was beginning to feel convicted for the lifestyle he was leading.
"I was doing that stuff all week long and still going to church on Sunday. That's crazy," He admits. "You know how that goes, you have flexing Fridays, syrup sippin' Saturdays, then you trying to be sanctified on Sunday. That was me." more >>
As the removal of five Romanian Pentecostal kids from their parents' custody over spanking allegations has enraged thousands of global supporters, some Christian leaders in Norway are combating the notion that parental and religious freedoms are being violated by the Norwegian government.
As The Christian Post has extensively reported, the five children of Ruth and Marius Bodnariu were removed from their parents custody on Nov. 16. after a school principal told Norwegian authorities about their oldest daughter's allegation that her parents spanked her and her siblings as a form of discipline.
As spanking and other forms of physical punishment are considered illegal under Norwegian law, the Barnevernet (Norway's child services agency) placed the five children of the Romanian Pentecostal migrant couple in three separate foster homes while their parents have been granted limited visitation rights. more >>
Some Tyra Banks fans might be wondering where the former Victoria's Secret model hid her baby bump for nine months, following the birth of her son, York, last week. That's because she and her boyfriend of two years, Erik Asla, found a surrogate to birth their new born son, York Banks Asla, who was introduced to the world last week in an Instagram post.
"The best present we worked and prayed so hard for is finally here," the former TV host captioned a photo showing a baby's traditional hospital hat. "He's got my fingers and big eyes and his daddy's mouth and chin."
Banks, 42, and her boyfriend, 50, owe it all to someone they pegged an angel, a gestational surrogate who birthed their child. "As we thank the angel of a woman that carried our miracle baby boy for us, we pray for everyone who struggles to reach this joyous milestone," she added. more >>
In what must be one of the cleverest semi-subtle sex jokes of the modern era, the National Football League has given the world a musical commercial about one way people celebrate winning the Super Bowl.
Apparently, according to research cities that win the Super Bowl always get an increase in births approximately nine months after the big game. Hmmm … I wonder why.
Less than a week away from Super Bowl L (or as some insist on calling it, Super Bowl 50), the NFL brought together multiple choirs of people born about nine months after the Super Bowl. more >>
