NEW YORK — Despite its enviable record as the most printed and sold book in the world over the last five decades, less than half of practicing Christians in the U.S. spend serious time engaging with their Bible, according to the American Bible Society, and the rest of the country is even worse.
In a presentation at the Movement Day Global Cities conference at the Jacob Javits Center last Wednesday, Samuel Harrell, director of Project Ignition at the American Bible Society, presented evidence gathered from a six-year assessment of the state of the Bible conducted by the Barna Group which shows that just 18 percent of the American population 18 years and older in general reads the Bible. Of the practicing Christians in that group, only 37 percent engage with their Bible.
"We have been having the honor of walking for a number of years with Barna Group and studying the state of the Bible in America. I know that you and I are feeling the change in the winds and the trends that are affecting us, so you probably had conversations about just what feels very real about the Bible in our culture," Harrell said. more >>
Televangelist James Robison believes that Donald Trump was advised not to show too much remorse for the lewd remarks he has made about women and believes that he has been advised not to act like a "weepy Christian" even though he has opened himself to receiving divine guidance.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Thursday, Robison, the founder of LIFE Outreach International and a member of Trump's evangelical advisory board, said that the billionaire real estate mogul is not fully displaying publicly the fact that he has privately expressed a willingness to embrace the wisdom of God.
Additionally, Robison said that Trump has not accurately displayed how truly remorseful and "broken" he was after a 2005 "hot mic" conversation in which he made some lewd comments about women was published by The Washington Post last month. more >>

Saeed Abedini says the 37th anniversary of the 1979 Iran hostage crisis also marks the three-year anniversary of when he was moved from Evin to Rajaeeshahr prison by the Iranian regime that tortured him on a daily basis in an attempt to get him to renounce Jesus Christ.
Abedini revealed in a Facebook post on Thursday that he was moved from Evin to Rajaeeshahr where he was placed in a "section for martyrs" just one week after President Obama had a phone conversation with President Rouhani of Iran. He said the regime transferred him to that prison to give the U.S. "a one, two, three punch" and display their power to the media.
"There were 120 murderers there who killed someone in the prison after they had been arrested for killing someone before they came to prison. Guards would not dare come to that section," he said. "The first two nights that I was there, four people were killed in prison fights by swords and knives, right in of front of my eyes. more >>
Hispanic evangelical leader the Reverend Samuel Rodriguez appeared to imply Christians should vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump, encouraging them to cast votes for a pro-life, pro-religious freedom party platform, rather than voting on the "personality" of the nominee, which he called "idolatry."
At a simulcast event held at Elevate Life Church in Frisco, Texas on Wednesday, evangelical leaders and public figures urged attendees and watchers to vote.
In a message given via satellite, Rev. Rodriguez told those gathered at Elevate Life and the thousands watching online that they need to vote on "policy," not "personality" on election day. more >>
