    And church attendance by Roman Catholics is on the decline again. So, in fact, is the religious affiliation among Americans at large.The drop continues a long trend of declining attendance at mass. In the last three years, an average of only 39 percent of Catholics reported attending church in the past week. That’s down from an average of 45 percent just 10 years ago. And severely off from the mid-1900’s. In 1955, for instance, 75 percent of Catholics reported attending mass during the previous week.On the other side of the aisle, the new Gallup survey found that church attendance...

    The Alabama Crimson Tide paid a visit to the White House the other day and it turned out to be one of those uniquely American moments. For the record I happen to be a Tennessee Volunteer fan but what the Crimson Tide did at the White House transcends football rivalries even Southeastern Conference football rivalries. Coach Nick Saban gladly accepted President Trumps invitation and said the entire national championship team would attend regardless of political proclivities. Coach Saban addressed it and just said, Hey, were doing this regardless of your political thoughts, offensive lineman Ross Pierschbacher told...

    Many years ago, I attended a dinner at a wealthy man's New York City condo with, among others, one of the most prominent and influential conservatives in American life. I admired this man then and I admire him now (he has since passed on). He was a major force for good in America. At one point, the subjects of God and religion came up, and I mentioned how essential God is to morality -- that without God, morality is subjective, a matter of personal or communal opinion. Having debated atheist scholars, all of whom agreed with this not-very-audacious observation, I...

    Movie Guide ^ | March 30, 2018 | Ron DeHaas
    In 1992, I learned the meaning of the Hebrew word shachah. 10 years earlier, I met my wife on an oil rig. I was a geologist, working on a well, she was an engineer. I had spent 11 years in college, going full time including summers, and never heard the message of the gospel. My parents, sister, and brothers were completely unchurched, and I actually did not know the meaning of Christmas or Easter, and certainly did not know who Jesus Christ was. I cant say I was an atheist I simply was a non-theist. So, when I met...

    The faith-based film "I Can Only Imagine" brought in $17.1 million at the domestic box office during its opening weekend, going far beyond early expectations and ranking third, behind "Tomb Raider" and "Black Panther." Based on the true-story of Christian artist Bart Millard's life, the family drama opened at 1,629 locations in the United States and received an A+ CinemaScore with an audience that was 67 percent female and 80 percent over 35. This is the distributor Roadside Attractions' highest grossing opening ever. "We felt that the film's inspiring story of hope and forgiveness made for a very compelling collaboration,"...

I had not heard of her until she reached out to me through Facebook---to commend me for a recent column I had written about how Communism, despite its deadly track record, seems to be gaining some support among the young and nave of the West. I have come to learn her story, to read her book, and to interview her on the radio. She has an important...

    In 2008, John Michael Finley a student at the prestigious performing arts school at Roosevelt University came home to Lebanon after his spring semester only to hear bad news. His father told him that Roosevelt University was simply too expensive, and hed need to finish his college education elsewhere. This news didnt necessarily bode well for his aspirations as an actor, yet Finley took it in stride. But only a few weeks later, he and his family were shaken by tragedy. On May 31, 2008, Finleys 21-year-old brother, Army Specialist James M. Finley, was killed in Jalalabad City,...

    The GOD of the BIBLE versus The god of the Nation of Islam (NOI, Louis Farrakhan Sr., etc.) (Isaiah 44:8) “Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God; I know not any.”"For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty" (2 Pet 1:16). Bible: GOD always existed and always will, and is the Creator, not a created being, and His essential nature is that of spirit, not flesh and blood, and who has always been and...

    o the royal household, it is known as the QXB the Queens Christmas broadcast. To millions of people, it is still an essential feature of Christmas Day. To the Queen, her annual broadcast is the time when she speaks to the nation without the government scripting it. But in recent years, it has also become something else: a declaration of her Christian faith. As Britain has become more secular, the Queens messages have followed the opposite trajectory.

    Speaking the word of God brings increase in every area of your life. When you understand the process God has supplied you with to receive whatever you may need in this life you will have a greater appreciation of the word of God. 2Peter 1:3 says, God has given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness. How has God given us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, by his word. The process of receiving what God has given us by his word is found in Mark 4:26-28 it operates on the principle of sowing and...

    David Brody and Scott Lamb's latest book, The Faith of Donald J. Trump, A Spiritual Biography, published by Harper Collins, is an absolute joy to read. It chronicles the history of the 45th presidents faith in two parts. The first takes the reader down memory lane, following the footsteps of Trumps grandparents and parents to understand the cultural and religious influences that shaped his Christian worldview. The second focuses on Trumps more recent statements about God, faith, forgiveness, and personal relationships with Christian leaders. It details interviews with Trump during and after his successful presidential campaign, controversial statements, and...

    In the aftermath of another school campus mass murder by a deranged individual, there were a myriad of reactions as people tried to come to grips with why this continues to happen. Many of the reactions are expected -- especially those speaking of the need for greater controls over the acquisition of guns. One reaction I dont understand is why clergy are not calling for more religion instead of more gun control. By now you know that (to their credit) the FBI stated they did not act on a tip received on the Parkland, Fla., murderer that could have potentially...

    He must have been the most wildly successful preacher in temporal history by the time he died in North Carolina, where he was born 99 years ago. He walked with presidents and kings, commoners and the uncommon, yet never lost the common touch. They all learned to call him Billy, and he wouldn't have had it any other way. He stood there like an emissary from another world far beyond this one, yet part of it. His thick hair and blue eyes made him all the more compelling a presence, yet he spoke with an authority not his but his...

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another. "We're done with thoughts and prayers!" an...

    Gayle Myrick, a 68-year-old grandmother of three, loved her job as a magistrate in North Carolina. For almost five years, she set bonds, issued warrants, and granted protective orders to domestic violence victims, all while offering a message of hope to individuals in a tough spot.“You can start over every day,” Gayle would tell the Americans who came before her. “You don’t have to be in this situation forever. There’s plenty of people that want to help you.”She especially loved presiding over marriage ceremonies.“Presiding over two people committing their lives to each other filled me with so much joy...

    From escaping Iran through the mountains as a Muslim refugee, to surviving domestic abuse and imprisonment in a Turkish prison, to carving out a life in Sweden, Annahita Parsans story is the stuff of a Hollywood movie. Parsan, a convert from Islam to Christianity and mother of two, has emerged as one of the most prominent religious figures in Europe, both because of her unlikely geographic and spiritual pilgrimage and her decision to reach out to Muslims with the gospel -- at great personal risk. The former refugee is now the leader of two congregations in Sweden. She not only...

    The women of ABC News' The View took a shot a Vice President Mike Pences Christian faith on Tuesday, mocking the former governor of Indiana for talking to Jesus and even calling it a mental illness. It all started when they played a clip from Celebrity Big Brother, in which former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman discussed the vice president. As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life, she said in the clip. I am Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks...
