One of the best perks of attending the National Religious Broadcasters’ Convention is getting to see films before they’re released. That was the case last month when I was fortunate enough to attend a premiere screening of I Can Only Imagine, the film named after the hit song by Christian band MercyMe. I Can Only Imagine, from filmmakers Jon and Andrew Erwin (October Baby, Woodlawn, Moms Night Out), opens this Friday, March 16. I will see it again – probably… Read more

When we say that “marriage has its challenges,” that’s a far cry from what it actually looks like to daily battle our sinful, self-centered nature in order to love, support, and sacrifice for the sake of our spouse. Read more

A new campaign to speak out for and raise the profile of persecuted Christians around the world began today – Valentine’s Day/Ash Wednesday 2018. Save The Persecuted Christians ( ) is an informal alliance of individuals, churches, and non-profit organizations urging our fellow Americans to become intimately familiar with the sorrow, oppression, and persecution suffered by most of the world’s followers of Jesus Christ. Save The Persecuted Church (STPC) is literally planting a flag (banner, as it were) and saying… Read more

It seems that God has given America a second chance to respond to cries for freedom in Iran. Crowds of Iranians are in the streets, as they were during the Green Revolution. Once again they are protesting against the repressive Islamic regime, as they did in 2009. The people of Iran are showing that they don’t want to be ruled by a brutal theocracy. In June 2009 the Iranian people took to the streets protesting the presidential election stolen by… Read more

On Monday, December 18, 2017, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stood up to the UN Security Council as few representatives have ever done. Hers was the lone dissenting vote as the 14 other UNSC member states voted in favor of a resolution introduced by Egypt condemning the US for deciding to move its embassy to Jerusalem. The resolution even attempted to prohibit the US from this action. Haley’s arm shot up at the call for “against” with… Read more

(In addition, that is, to the BIG ONES – concerning the Deity of Christ, and the birth of the Messiah, to Mary, a young Jewish virgin.) The American Atheists are baaack! With yet another attack on Christmas. This year’s Angry Atheist Attack comes in the form of telling people to skip church and calling the birth of Christ “fake news.” These two messages appear on a billboard with a deceptively sweet drawing of a Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph, and the Baby. Also in the scene… Read more

Tomorrow, November 22, 2017, is #RedWednesday, an effort to call attention to those who are persecuted for their faith around the world using the red.  Red is the color traditionally associated with Christian martyrs, and with Jesus Himself (hence, the abundance of RED church doors) but the #RedWednesday effort is for all victims of persecution and of Antisemitism globally. The 21st Century Wilberforce Initiative (21CWI) introduced this campaign in the United States. #RedWednesday began in the United Kingdom, as a creation of Aid to the Church in Need(ACN-UK). In Great Britain, the… Read more

Evangelicals’ failure to support the nation-state of Israel could have disastrous implications for democracy, women’s rights, and religious minorities in the Middle East. Read more

Dear Ambassador Haley: My view of South Sudan and the conflict is not at all popular right now. I have lost friends and garnered much hostility for speaking out. I have had colleagues roll their eyes and some South Sudanese call me “pro-Dinka” and “government collaborator.” But I am not. I am pro-truth, and truth has been replaced by a false narrative with convenient sound bites.  I cannot stay silent. After 24 years of experience with Sudan and South Sudan,… Read more
