    Judge Brian Hagedorn is being publicly trashed for being on the board of a small Christian school, and for blog posts when he was in law school discussing court cases about abortion and gay sex. With six weeks left until election day in Wisconsin’s Supreme Court race, several far-left organizations are using media outlets to amplify a smear campaign against a judge based on his Christianity. Brian Hagedorn, a current Wisconsin Court of Appeals judge and former Scott Walker legal counsel, is being publicly trashed for being on the board of a small Christian school, and for blog posts when...

    Which U.S. cities do the majority of Christian singles call home?The majority of Christian singles tend to dwell in large East Coast cities, according to Barna. In a study released this week, researchers unpacked how much the dating and relationship landscape has changed in the U.S. Barna has consistently tracked for many years the relationship status of practicing Christians — defined as those who attend a religious service at least once a month, self-identify as Christian, and say their faith is important to them."The country’s largest city, New York, New York, tops the list at 32 percent, followed closely by...
  • These are the questions Sweden asks asylum seekers to see if they're 'real' Christians

    What does Matthew 10:34 say? Which things are forbidden according to Christianity? Can you describe the sacraments? If these questions seem hard – even unanswerable – to you, you're lucky not to be a Christian asylum seeker in Sweden. Since many years back, the Swedish Migration Board tries to differentiate between "real" converts from Islam to Christianity that risk persecution in their countries of origin, and "fake" ones who only seek a cheap way to gain asylum, by asking various questions. Sweden being a very secular country, most officials who come up with these questions are not Christians themselves. Furthermore,...

    Court documents revealed the public university kept a ‘watch list’ of student groups on probation. All of the groups on the list were religious. On Wednesday, a federal court ruled that the University of Iowa had illegally targeted religious groups for requiring their leaders to follow their faith. As such, Business Leaders in Christ (BLC), a Christian student group on the University of Iowa’s campus, secured a permanent place on campus. At the hearing February 1, it was clear the university had not only kicked BLC off campus because of their expression of faith, but had targeted and blacklisted 31...
  • Actor Anthony Hopkins Turns from Alcoholism & Atheism, Becomes A Christian

    Anthony Hopkins is one of the most well-known actors of our time. For years, he was a well-known atheist, too. But all of that changed when a woman at an AA meeting challenged his disbelief with one, simple question. That was the beginning of the inspiring Anthony Hopkins testimony! No matter how successful someone may seem from the outside, we all have our own internal struggles. During the earlier years of Anthony Hopkins’ career, he found himself in his own battle with alcoholism. Anthony’s addiction started “innocently.” He adopted a worldly mindset and drank because “that's what you do...

    KOBANE, Northeast Syria – With the pullout of US troops, Christians here in northeast Syria told CBN News their future hangs in the balance.  With the region on the brink of chaos, they’re fearful and warning of a new genocide.   Just a few years ago, ISIS left a scar on the land in the form of an historic genocide in parts of Iraq and Syria.  Now Christians fear another potential apocalypse with enemies all around them. Turkey is the main concern. "After the threats of (Turkish President) Erdogan to this region that he wants to take the place of the great...
  • Conservative Christians Are Having Fewer Babies, Study Finds

    PJ Media ^ | 01/30/2019 | John ellis
    One of the first commands from God recorded in the Bible was for Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply. In other words, go make a bunch of babies. For generations upon generations, God's people have done an admirable job of obeying that command. Not so much now, though. A new study claims that conservative Protestants are "becoming less fruitful." Analyzing data gathered from 1972-2016, the authors of the study confronted the belief that higher fertility rates are connected to "religious commitment and belief." In their research, a drop in birth rates was a trend they discovered among both...

    Schwartz Report ^ | January 17, 2019 | Casey Michel
    The group and its origins sound innocuous enough. But the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) — a right-wing group founded 36 years ago — has deepened connections between America’s religious right and Russians even as the latter have been sanctioned by the United States, according to a ThinkProgress investigation. By networking with Russians, the HSLDA — now America’s largest right-wing homeschooling association — has provided the Kremlin with a new avenue of influence over some of the most conservative organizations in the United States. And while investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, intelligence organizations, and congressional committees have focused...

    I’ve seen it time and again in the Christian entertainment industry. A new Christian film is coming out, and we’re excited to announce that so-and-so, a famous secular director, is involved with the project. We seem to have forgotten, though, that only a few months earlier we were boycotting that very director’s films because of their immoral, anti-Christ message. Now, we revel in his validation. Why? We do the same thing with the secular news media or with liberal activist groups. We want to show them how moral we are, even though we reject their morality. Why? What are we...

    FULL TITLE: Chick-fil-A restaurant inside this year's Super Bowl stadium will NOT open for the big game because of its 73-year-old policy to stay closed on Sundays The Chick-fil-A restaurant inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta will not open for those attending the Super Bowl game next Sunday. That's because of the fast food chain's 73-year-old policy to close on Sundays, which was established to give employees a chance to go to church or be with family. And February 3 will be no exception, despite the fact that 71,000 fans will pack the stadium to watch the New England Patriots face...

    China’s Communist party is intensifying religious persecution as Christianity’s popularity grows. A new state translation of the Bible will establish a ‘correct understanding’ of the textIn late October, the pastor of one of China’s best-known underground churches asked this of his congregation: had they successfully spread the gospel throughout their city? “If tomorrow morning the Early Rain Covenant Church suddenly disappeared from the city of Chengdu, if each of us vanished into thin air, would this city be any different? Would anyone miss us?” said Wang Yi, leaning over his pulpit and pausing to let the question weigh on his...

    Responding to the question of whether or not Christians who commit suicide go to Heaven, ethicist Russell Moore said that because the blood of Christ covers sins past, present and future, the “last thing we do” does not determine where we will spend eternity. Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said he’s often asked the question by worried individuals whose loved one committed suicide. “They worry,” he said. “Does this mean because this person essentially the last act on earth was a sin, does this mean that that person is in Hell?...

When the music stops, American pastor Karl Vickery preaches with the help of a Persian translator. "I'm not famous or rich. But I know Jesus. I have Jesus," he says, with a Southern drawl. The Farsi-speaking Christian converts shout "Hallelujah!" and clap.

It can be quite difficult to find a company or a store whose owner(s) shares the same ideals as you.As you may know, companies are made with different purposes. Some business owners simply want to make money, but for others, there's a deeper purpose for it.So if you're in the United States you probably know about In N' Out Burger and Chick-Fil-A, but there are still other Christian companies out there to support.

    WASHINGTON, DC – President Donald Trump signed a law on Tuesday combatting genocide of Christians in the Middle East, legislation supported by the Knights of Columbus and a broad array of faith-based organizations. Christians are being systematically wiped out in Syria and Iraq, along with other religious minorities in parts of the Middle East. Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and former Rep. Frank Wolf (R-VA) spearheaded the passage of H.R. 390, the Iraq and Syria Genocide Relief and Accountability Act of 2018, which the president signed in an Oval Office ceremony.
