By Jonathan Lewis | 10.01.20We’re living in turbulent times. Between the ongoing pandemic, upcoming election, racial tension, wildfires, and more, we have plenty to challenge and concern us. On top of the issues that have consumed our national attention, we also may have personal...
By Laurie Higgins | 09.29.20In June 2020, Kennedy Mitchum, a 22-year-old graduate of Drake University, needed a way to call non-racists “racists,” so she emailed Merriam-Webster Dictionary to tell them to change the definition of "racism" in such a way as to enable people to use the Merriam-Webster Dictionary to call non-racists “racists.”
09.26.20Every Christian is called to pray. It is not an optional duty. We are to pray without giving up in prayer. It is part of spiritual warfare.
During these tumultuous times, it is vitally important to humble ourselves, seek God's abundant mercies, and ask Him to supersede in the affairs of our state and nation.
By Dr. Joey Krol | 09.17.20King Jehoshaphat was the ruler of Judah for 25 years from 873 to 848 BC. He had his good and bad moments as a leader, but ultimately, his desire was to honor the Lord, despite his spiritual fumbles during his reign. According to 2 Chronicles 20, the Moabites, Ammonites, and Meunites gathered to attack Jehoshaphat and his kingdom.
How would he respond to these enemy forces coming against him?
By Christine Misner | 09.09.20Rev. Franklin Graham is calling Christians to Washington, D.C. September 26 for a national prayer march to ask God to save the country from the perilous situation its currently facing. Issues include the effects of COVID-19, nationwide protests and rioting, and the upcoming national elections.
By Israel Wayne | 08.31.20Beginning in March 2020, Americans have been forced to adjust to a “new normal.” Work, school, personal lives and even church have been disrupted for millions. The church issue is especially troubling since religious belief and practice was the very first thing protected in our U.S. Constitution...
By Alex Newman | 08.28.20There is now proof that there are very dark forces behind Black Lives Matter, and it’s not just the blatant Marxism of its founders and leaders. The darkness literally includes summoning dead spirits and allowing them to work through BLM...
By David E. Smith | 08.20.20If you’ve ever wondered how you can (or why you must) be the salt of the earth and a light to the world, you will want to listen to Dr. Michael L. Brown’s presentation, The Role of Christians in the Public Square, from the 2020 IFI Worldview conference. Using biblical principles and real-life examples, Dr. Brown explains the purpose and imperative of living out our faith in the secular world and asks straightforward questions that cut right to the heart of what it means to be a believer and follower of Jesus.
By Dr. Michael L. Brown | 08.13.20One of our most popular videos encourages pastors to speak out more on moral and cultural issues. And a poll I recently conducted on Twitter confirmed that congregants want their leaders to be more vocal on cultural and even political issues. But what is a proper balance? What should our priorities be as preachers of the Word and shepherds of the flock?
By Dr. Joey Krol | 08.12.20This year has been a very, very interesting year. Some will say it has been a difficult year. Others will say that it’s been a frustrating year. But all would agree that it’s been an unforgettable year. My last message to my Church before the “shutdown” was a prophetic one, without even knowing it. It was one that God knew that I and our Church family needed to hear.
By Jonathan Lewis | 08.10.20Have you ever noticed how easy it is to be lazy sometimes? Or distracted? Or preoccupied with “important” things? Or forgetful of our values and what really matters? I was thinking about parenting recently, and it struck me that it’s easy to talk about how vitally important Christian parenting is in a broad, general sense, but then get lazy in our day-to-day practice.
By Laurie Higgins | 08.06.20On July 23, 2020, conservative University of North Carolina professor, Townhall writer, and Christian, Mike Adams, was driven to suicide by the vile and relentless bullying of devotees of diversity and teachers of tolerance who fancy themselves “progressive.” They were aided and abetted by spineless Christians who failed to come alongside a brother in Christ because of his “sins” of violating leftist language rules.
By Israel Wayne | 07.23.20This past week, a well-known Christian author and former editor for CCM Magazine posted on Facebook and Instagram that he is leaving his wife to pursue a homosexual lifestyle. The details of the story are all too common. Give it a month or two and we’ll see the same scenario play out again, only with different names and titles. Maybe next time it will be a pastor or a worship leader or some other Christian celebrity.
07.16.20It’s become almost a trope at this point among people who study and write about American religion and politics – evangelicals punch way above their weight. Their voter turnout has stayed relatively steady despite their drop in population share. But, I was working through some data today and noticed something that I don’t think that I’ve seen reported on much – atheists are incredibly politically active – more so than any other religious group.
