Imagine for a moment that you are a public servant who has taken an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution. Now imagine that the Supreme Court of the United States admonished you and your colleagues for actions they deemed unconstitutional in a 7-2 landmark decision.

Would you be humbled? Would you make a good-faith effort to change the policies and behavior that put you at the mercy of the nation’s highest court? Most of us would. But this does not seem to be the case for some acting on behalf of the state of Colorado ...

This week, journalists uncovered shocking information about experiments being performed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CNS News found that the FDA “signed a new contract on July 25 to acquire ‘fresh’ human fetal tissue to transplant into ‘humanized mice’ so that these mice will have a functioning ‘human immune system.’”

The information came to light in information published by the FDA and the General Services Administration. An FDA notice for the contract dated June 13 said, “The objective is to acquire Tissue for Humanized Mice.” In this “presolicitation notice,” the FDA states that they are seeking ...

The University of Central Oklahoma has opened its arms to drag queen shows and safe sex carnivals but they draw the line at Christians who believe God created the Heavens and the Earth in six days.

The university apparently has no problem with students tossing dildos through cardboard vaginas, but they draw the line at exposing impressionable young minds to the teachings of a creationist.

Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and founder of the popular Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, was disinvited from speaking on the public university campus after ...

Social media giants are not the only businesses discriminating against Christians, as one billboard company in Southern California is refusing to run an ad for an evangelist – simply because he is holding a Bible.

For 28 years, world-renowned evangelist Greg Laurie has been holding evangelistic crusades in Southern California, where he has led tens of thousands to Christ and encouraged millions in their faith.

This year's SoCal Harvest hopefully will bring more of the same, but when the event takes place, it will not be credited to the Irvine Company, which is the owner of the Southern California mall called Fashion Island.

Laurie told Janet Mefferd on American Family Radio that ...

... Someone once said that God created man in His image, and man has been returning the favor ever since. Most of us are guilty of fashioning a god in our own image. Our god doesn’t mind lust, or a fib here and there. He doesn’t have any moral dictates. In truth, our god doesn’t exist. He is a figment of our imagination, shaped to conform to our sins.

We are also guilty of idolatry when we picture God as a benevolent Santa Claus figure who dispenses good things and won’t punish us for our sins, believing that He is too loving to send anyone to Hell. But consider what the Bible reveals about our Creator. The book of Genesis tells us that ...

Forget what’s best for foster kids. According to the ACLU, all that matters is diversity.

On any given day, an estimated 438,000 kids are in foster care. In 2016, nearly 700,000 American kids spent some time in foster care.

That same year about 23,000 kids aged out of the system—they turned eighteen and were released from the custody of the state. Twenty percent of them instantly became ....

An American pastor who's been imprisoned in Turkey for alleged "espionage" is being released and allowed to return to his home there, while still under house arrest.

Pastor Andrew Brunson, who is from North Carolina, had been incarcerated for 21 months in Turkey because of his Christian faith. As recently as last week, it appeared he would be held in prison until his next court date in October. He had been on trial for the crime of "Christianization."

But the American Center for Law and Justice – which has been working on both sides of the Atlantic to secure his release – announced today ....

Ambivalence and ambiguity seem to be the new cool in some facets of Christianity.

Perhaps it is only in the safe sanctuaries of sensate western culture that notable evangelicals can dally with doubt and ambiguity regarding the Bible, when they should be declaring boldly, "Thus saith the Lord!"

Ambiguity and ambivalence are unaffordable indulgences in our age.

Churches today are struggling....

The owners of a Pennsylvania farm have been ordered by the Sewickley Heights Borough to cease and desist holding Bible studies on their private property.

Borough leaders accused Scott and Terri Fetterolf of improperly using their 35-acre farm as a place of worship, a place of assembly and as a commercial venue. They were served a cease-and-desist order in October 2017, the Post-Gazette reported.

The Independence Law Center filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the farmers against the borough alleging an egregious violation of the U.S. Constitution. According to the lawsuit ....

Documents filed with the United Methodist Church's top court are shedding first light on specifics of long-awaited proposals to avoid schism in the second-largest Protestant denomination in the United States.

The three plans were published Tuesday (July 17) as part of the docket for the United Methodist Church Judicial Council's October meeting. The denomination's Council of Bishops is asking its top court for a decision ....
