A Southern California-based justice advocate believes that some of the greatest world changers are among the victims of the sex trade, and says the Bible backs this up.
When many Christians consider the scourge of human trafficking, it is all too easy to react in grief and revulsion, or worse, pretend it doesn't exist.
Kim Biddle, 36, who resides in Los Angeles, told The Christian Post that years ago she realized how much of a money-driven crime this is while researching the issue, causing her to think about how this was affecting the United States given its vast economic prosperity. Such inquiries would reveal the horrifying scope of the sex industry, but for followers of Jesus who know the power of grace and redemption, she contends, shutting down emotionally because it's too much to bear is no answer. more >>
NEW YORK — When 25-year-old Micah Xavier Johnson fatally shot five police officers and injured seven others in Dallas, Texas, in July, the city's Mayor Mike Rawlings knew he would need the church to keep the city from exploding.
Rawlings would need the Church, according to Senior Pastor Bryan Carter of Concord Church in Dallas, because the city is deeply divided by race and income.
"Dallas is a very segregated city. Dallas has a black side, Latino side and a white side. North Dallas is incredibly affluent, while southern Dallas has heavy pockets of poverty," Carter said Monday at the "National Discussion on Race" Conference convened by Movement Day Global Cities at Bethel Gospel Assembly in New York City on Monday. more >>
During the third presidential debate between political rivals Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last Wednesday, the former secretary of state failed the women she purports to represent by perpetuating several myths about abortion and Planned Parenthood that have been proven untrue.
Either by sheer ignorance or cunning deception, Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, misled viewers of the Fox News debate when she said Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings, China no longer forces women to have abortions, late-term abortions are necessary to save the lives of mothers, and Planned Parenthood is needed to provide healthcare for women.

A Florida youth pastor has been arrested and charged with forcing four teenage boys into prostitution by telling them that they could make money modeling and threatening them if they didn't agree to have sex with male clients he met on the internet.
According to a Miami police report, Ron Cooper, who goes by the nickname "Romeo," sex trafficked four boys aged 16 to 18, who were forced to have sex for money at three different Miami-Dade County hotels and at an adult bookstore in Miami.
The district attorney in Orange County, California has filed a lawsuit against two biomedical procurement companies and has accused them of turning illegal lucrative profits from the sales of aborted baby body parts acquired from Planned Parenthood clinics.
Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas announced last week that his office has filed a civil complaint against sister companies DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences. The lawsuit alleges that the companies are guilty of selling hundreds of aborted baby tissue units all over the world for an extremely marked up profit.
"This is an unlawful, unfair, business practices case filed under CA Business and Professions Code section 17200," Rackauckas stated in a news release. "This Office is continuing to investigate and develop this case. All of the evidence we are using in this case was put together by the District Attorney's Office." more >>
