    After signing a letter expressing disappointment with the new administration, a pro-life evangelical scholar who voted for President Joe Biden said that while he would vote for Biden again if the 2020 presidential election were held today, he would not make his support public. Richard Mouw, president emeritus of Fuller Seminary in California and a member of Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden, spoke to The Christian Post Tuesday, days after his group issued a statement in response to the president's support for a coronavirus relief package that did not include a longstanding provision that prevents the use of taxpayer dollars to...
  • John MacArthur: ‘I wouldn’t fight for religious freedom because I won’t fight for idolatry’ ["Why would I fight for the devil to have as many false religions as possible"]

    During his State of the Church address Wednesday, which replaced his Shepherds’ Conference for men in church leadership that was postponed due to “ongoing litigation" and "threats" from the state, MacArthur urged evangelicals to stop forming alliances with non-Christian groups to promote religious freedom because they don’t need it. “The Gospel offends the sinner and seeks to break the sinner’s comfort and contentment by bringing him into stark realization of the eternal judgement of God. Evangelicals have become like Peter. They are looking for alliances with Satan that they think somehow can aid the Kingdom,” MacArthur said. I told our...

    Indonesia has named an evangelical Christian as the new national police chief, marking the first time in nearly 50 years that a member of the religious minority has held the post in the Muslim-majority nation. According to UCA News, Commissioner General Listyo Sigit Prabowo, 52, was sworn in on Jan. 27 as police chief, succeeding Gen. Idham Azis who retired on Feb.1. A Protestant, Listyo is the first Christian to hold the post in nearly 50 years and only the third since Indonesia declared independence in August 1945. Despite opposition from Islamic groups, Listyo was the only candidate unanimously approved...

    Teleios conducted a survey of 565 evangelicals. Respondents noted advantages to living in a Christian society, compared to any other type of society (41%) and compared only to a secular society (18%). The top 3 potential advantages of a Christian society were: a stronger moral (82%) and ethical base (71%) as well as greater love among people (75%). The top 3 advantages of a Christian society in relation to government were: recognizing the primary biblical role of government to keep order in society (60%); maintaining individual rights, especially freedom of religion and expression (56%); and reducing corruption (54%).

    Exploring why conservatives have lost almost every political argument since 1945, Ed West looks at this endless litany of failure from the perspective of one of the losers, in a semi-autobiographical, self-deprecating way.Since the 1950s the western world has gone through a huge cultural shift, comparable to the rise of Christianity during the late Roman period and the 16th century religious revolution unleashed by Martin Luther. Both of these led to profound changes in public ideas about morality and sexuality, and eventually to 'culture wars' between two deeply opposed groups. Today what we're witnessing is a sort of second...

    One of the easiest ways to oppose the church is to criticize Christians in communist magazines, like Time. Often Big Eva Woke Evangelicals have gained major publicity by badmouthing the church on a pagan platform, whether it be the New York Times, Washington Post, or in this case, Time Magazine. Russell Moore got to sound off on his thought on politics and the church to a pagan audience and it could not come across as more pretentious. The article is titled “Theologian Russell Moore Has a Message for Christians Who Still Worship Donald Trump.” Note, that this was not written...

    White 'born-again' leaders trade gospel for identity politics CAROL STREAM, Illinois (ChurchMilitant.com) - Elite white evangelicals have launched vicious attacks on Trump 'deplorables,' claiming that the Capitol Hill "atrocity" was "brought to us by the white, evangelical church in America." Belying the religious, racial and class diversity of Trump's supporters, evangelicals like clergywoman Tish Harrison Warren are accusing the "white American church" and the "heresy of Christian nationalism" for the Epiphany protest.

    President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC, 20500 Dear Mr. President, As you doubtlessly know, a significant majority (at least 75%) of white and Hispanic Evangelicals did not vote for you. However, Mr. President, please allow me to congratulate you on behalf of millions of Evangelicals on having been elected to serve in the highest political office in the land. And, make no mistake, we accept you as our president. You will not hear from us the dangerous nonsense, “He will never be our president.” As you doubtlessly know, the Bible exhorts us to pray for “kings...

    Reformation Charlotte ^ | December 16, 2020 | Jeff Maples
    JD Greear, an unqualified pastor of Summit Church in Raleigh, North Carolina and the illegitimate third-term president of the Southern Baptist Convention has announced his intentions to hijack the traditionally conservative annual March for Life in Washington D.C. and turn it into a pro-social justice movement. Evangelical leftists, led by leftist Democrats such as Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition founder, Tim Keller, have been trying to hijack the pro-life movement for years. Dubbing the movement “pro-life from womb to tomb” basically discards the traditional anti-abortion movement and replaces it with...

    On his television show "The 700 Club," Robertson delivered a monologue in which he challenged the president on a personal and political level. .."I think it's all over - I think the Electoral College has spoken," Robertson said. "And I don't think the Biden corruption has been fully brought to fruition." Robertson proceeded to thank Trump for his tenure, saying Trump had "done a marvelous job for the economy" but adding that he was "very erratic, and he's fired people and he's fought people and he's insulted people, and he keeps going down the line." "You know, with all his...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/11/20 | Nicholas Rowan
    One of President Trump's top evangelical allies is calling on Christians to accept that Joe Biden is more than likely to take office as president in January. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Dallas, one of Texas's biggest megachurches, called Biden's apparent victory a "bitter pill to swallow" for Christians, but one that they must accept for the good of the country. At the same time, Jeffress on Wednesday said that he thinks a Biden administration will pose threats to religious liberty and anti-abortion interests, out-of-step with the former vice president's calls for "unity."

    Teleios evaluated the influence of religious beliefs on the general wellbeing of college students. Of the 227 participants, there were almost equal portions of self-professed evangelicals, social Christians, agnostic/atheist and other religious groups. Students reported high levels of wellbeing with no statistical difference between religious belief systems. Evangelical Christians more often perceived themselves as: spiritual (P<0.001), accepted by God (P<0.001) and having more purpose (P=0.01). Students who identified as both evangelicals and ‘saved by grace’ showed greater wellbeing (P=0.015). IN SUMMARY, university students have high levels of wellbeing across all religious belief systems, but evangelical Christians show higher levels of...

    Bound 4 Life ^ | Allan Carlson
    In constructing his evangelical family ethic, [Martin] Luther placed emphasis on Genesis 1:28: “Be fruitful and multiply.” This living-together of husband and wife—that they occupy the same home, that they take care of the household, that together they produce and bring up children—is a kind of faint image and a remnant, as it were, of that blessed living together [in Eden]. Luther knew that the contraceptive mentality was alive and well in his own time. He noted that this “inhuman attitude, which is worse than barbarous,” was found chiefly among the well born, “the nobility and princes.” Elsewhere, he linked...

    “On This Rock I Will Build My Church” (Matthew 16:13-20) Everyone is interested in building the church, growing the church. Uh, let me rephrase that. Everyone who is already in the church, who is active and involved in the church, is interested in building and growing the church. People on the outside, as well as those with only a loose connection to the church--they don’t give a rip. They couldn’t care less. But those of us at least who are here regularly in church, we care about the church being built up and growing. Nobody wants to see the church...

    Teleios conducted a wellbeing survey and found personal wellbeing was better among evangelical Christians compared to social Christians, Christian seekers or non-Christians. Evangelicals were more content, at peace, and joyful than the other groups. This was the first survey, to our knowledge, evaluating wellbeing in young Christians versus non-Christians. These findings support our prior research showing Christians who adhere to their faith report better general wellbeing. In addition, peer-reviewed medical literature notes that those practicing the Christian faith report better wellbeing than those who do not, specifically in healthy individuals, patients with a variety of diseases and those with addiction...

    Evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump will be greater in 2020’s presidential election than in 2016, predicted Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University, sharing his comments on Tuesday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Matt Boyle. Ninety percent of Evangelical Christians support Trump’s reelection, according to a recent Democracy Institute/Sunday Express poll. Boyle invited Falwell’s remarks on the poll’s findings. Falwell replied, “There’s no question about it. The Evangelical support [for Trump] has strengthened. I have board members who travel. I have one board member who lost his legs in Vietnam. He travels from military base...

    New research has found a link between religious environments in the United States and porn-viewing among youth. The study, published in Deviant Behavior, strengthens the findings of existing research by using multilevel data to account for important differences between individuals. Even after accounting for confounding variables, the researchers found that county-level religious adherence rates still increased the odds of watching porn during adolescence by 66.53%, regardless of religious identity. Similarly, youth were more likely to report viewing pornography in counties with a higher share of conservative Protestants, especially among youth who were not conservative Protestants themselves.
