    In a hotel conference room in Denizli, Turkey, about 60 Iranians sing along to songs praising Jesus mixed with Iranian pop music. 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.

    Christian-owned companies are diamonds in the ruff. 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. Take a look at these 5 Christian companies with Godly values that you should know about:1. Forever 21Forever 21†is a...

    WASHINGTON, DC Ė 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.

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. Both congressmen stood with the president as he signed the...

    . . . . ďTrump represents everything they should be against,Ē said Bolin, who has switched from Southern Baptist to Episcopalian. He meant the fact that the president is a double-divorcee with a penchant for prevaricating, talking dirty and, apparently, adultery. Trumpís a Presbyterian. Presbyterians arenít big on churchgoing; I know, I grew up one of the ďFrozen Chosen.Ē It seems Trump seldom warms a pew. He evidently prefers Sunday golf to Sunday worship. Yet the presidentís worldly pursuits on the sabbath also donít seem to trouble the souls in his evangelical flock. Never mind that most of them are...

    Among Protestant Christians in the United States, Lutherans are most likely to say that they consume alcohol while Pentecostals are least likely, a recently released LifeWay Research poll has found. The poll, which was conducted in August 2017 but released Tuesday, found that over 75 percent of Lutherans surveyed answered ďyesĒ when asked if they drink alcohol. Meanwhile, 62 percent of Methodist respondents responded with the same answer. By comparison, just 43 percent of nondenominational Christians, 33 percent of Baptists and 23 percent of Assemblies of God/Pentecostal Christians said that they consume alcohol. The survey is based on a sample...

    Itís one of the most sacrilegious acts a religious leader could perform, but itís happening again ó this time in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight, the the so-called Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is planning a ďblessingĒ of a local abortion clinic. This appears to be a response to the closing ceremony of the 40 Days for Life campaign where pro-life advocates pray outside abortion facilities worldwide and offer practical pregnancy help and support for women. Originally, the blessing was supposed to take place at a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Although, the Planned Parenthood event has now been taken off their website,...

    Donald Trumpís new attorney general once said that judges should be Christian and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments. Matthew Whitaker, who was made acting attorney general on Wednesday after Trump fired Jeff Sessions, said judges needed a ďbiblical view of justiceĒ and questioned the judgment of secular lawyers. Whitaker made the remarks at a conservative forum in April 2014, where he appeared as a candidate for the Republican US Senate nomination in Iowa. Video clips of the event were saved by People For the American Way, a liberal campaign group. The Republican candidates were asked what justification they...

    The late Milton Berle used to say as a part of his comedy routine: "Since perestroika and glasnost, the Russians have changed their electoral system. A man went in to vote and was handed a sealed ballot. He started to tear it open. An election official said, 'What are you doing, Igor?" 'I'm opening the ballot. I want to see who I voted for,' said the man. The election official replied, 'Don't be foolish, you're not supposed to know. We vote secret ballot in this country.'" Berle's humor reminds us of a privilege which we often take for granted Ė...

    In the decades since Truman, Kennedy or Reagan, what happened to the genuine Christians in helping America to remain free? Long ago, from the past of a distant America, during another election year, a man named Ronald Reagan gave a speech that set him on a journey that would eventually lead to him becoming president of the United States. On October 27th, at the height of the presidential campaign of 1964, Ronald Reagan delivered a rousing speech at the GOP National Convention to support Barry Goldwaterís effort to receive the Republican Partyís nomination. While endorsing Goldwater, Reagan stressed his own...

    If Christian and conservative Americans do not sufficiently rouse themselves and get to the polls this time around, in order to make the crucial difference, nearly all 250 years of our existence will have been just a pitiful waste of time You probably donít remember Captain Arthur J.

    CAIRO Ė Islamic militants on Friday ambushed two buses carrying Christian pilgrims on their way to a remote desert monastery south of the Egyptian capital of Cairo, killing seven and wounding up to 16, according to the Interior Ministry and security officials. Coptic Orthodox Church spokesman Boulos Halim said the death toll was likely to rise. Local church officials in Minya province where the attack took place put the death toll at 10, but the higher figure could not be confirmed. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, which bore the hallmarks of Islamic militants who have for years...

    Two days after the deadliest attack on Jews in U.S. history, Vice President Pence bowed his head at a rally on Monday in Michigan as a religious leader who casts himself as a ďrabbiĒ offered a prayer for the victims in Pittsburgh. But the man who shared a stage with Pence, Loren Jacobs, preaches Messianic Judaism, a tradition central to Jews for Jesus, a group condemned by Jewish leaders as faux Judaism that seeks to promote Christian evangelism. The major Jewish denominations join the state of Israel in viewing followers of Messianic Judaism as Christian, not Jewish. His appearance drew...

    Bangkok ó Thailandís capital of Bangkok is a large, bustling, chaotic metropolis. The friendly, informal nation of Thailand draws visitors from around the world. Filling some backstreet neighborhoods are impoverished Pakistani Christians, stranded in the Thai capital while hoping to gain religious asylum elsewhere. They survive with support from my friends at Christian Freedom International, which aids victims of religious persecution, and other humanitarian groups. The problem reflects domestic failures in Pakistan, especially social and legal discrimination and persecution, often violent, against religious minorities. Islamabad is formally an American ally but in practice has constantly challenged U.S. interests. The domestic...
