We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He’s coming back again, we believe

An NFL player who recalled shades of Tim Tebow was penalized during a football game for praying in the end zone:
Referees in Monday night’s game took exception to Kansas City’s Husain Abdullah actions after he slid in the end zone and prostrated himself…
Abdullah, a devout Muslim, placed himself in the traditional position for Islamic prayer, not too much unlike Tebowing. Also not unlike Tebow, Abdullah did not complain about the penalty and even put a somewhat lighthearted spin on the issue: Read more
Drs. Al Mohler and Russell Moore wrote in March on the topic of whether Christians are “hypocrites” for publicly opposing “same-sex marriage” while re-married divorcees make up large portions of their congregations. In short, Dr. Moore made the point that even if how they got there wasn’t right, the relationship between remarried men and women was still a marriage, in the Biblical definition.
The Southern Baptist Convention recently voted to break fellowship with a Southern California church that chose a “Third Way,” claiming they took no position as a church on “same-sex marriage.” The SBC disagreed and severed the relationship. Mohler and Moore again wrote on the topic of homosexuality and Biblical marriage in the Read more
Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, recently held a well-attended briefing at the US Capitol. He highlighted the need — and responsibility — for Christians to engage the culture [emphasis added]: Read more
Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear them or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.
– Rick Warren, as quoted in the Christian Post, 2 Mar 2012
I know here that you will agree with me that standing up for America also means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. I believe this country hungers for a spiritual revival. I believe it longs to see traditional values reflected in public policy again. To those who cite the first amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions and everyday life, may I just say: The first amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people Read more
After NFL-hopeful Michael Sam “came out” as a homosexual a few weeks ago, sports media was atwitter trying to find a locker room response that was headline-worthy. They thought they had one with Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins:
“From a football standpoint, if the guy can help us win, come help us win,” Cousins, who is a devout Christian, is quoted by MLive as saying during an appearance at Michigan’s NorthPointe High School. “Now, there are a lot of teammates in my locker room right now who may not have a homosexual lifestyle, but they have sins, too. They’re not perfect. So I don’t say they can’t help us win. Nobody’s perfect.”
That sounds like a reasoned, and reasonable, expression of tolerance from Christian perspective. That shouldn’t cause a ruckus, should it?
Outsports’ Jim Buzinski was among those who were critical of Cousins’ statements. “People like Cousins seem Read more
While Miley Cyrus makes headlines for posing topless and Justin Bieber for alleged DUI arrests and just plain being a jerk, ‘Duck Dynasty’s’ Sadie Robertson is making headlines for a very different reason.
The 16-year-old ‘Duck’ heiress is famous for putting her faith first.
“I think people use fame as an excuse to lose their faith,” Roberston told FOX411. “Faith is obviously my number one priority and I think you need to put God at the top of everything you do.”
The world may be full of darkness, but Read more
