The six-time Stellar Award and two-time Dove Award-winning singer and producer is focused on obeying a call from God to release an international sound with his new album that was recorded during a worship experience in South Africa.

Evangelical Christians plan to inundate the United Nations' Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization with Bibles in response to the passing of an Arab-sponsored resolution last month that opponents claim denies Jewish and Christian ties to the Temple Mount and Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City.
After UNESCO's executive board approved the Palestinian-drafted resolution to condemn Israel for its "mishandling" of holy sites in Old Jerusalem in mid-October, it angered Jews and Christians, who claimed that the resolution is "ignorant" and attempts to bolster a revisionist history that erases Jewish and Christian bonds to the Temple Mount.
Twenty-four UNESCO members voted in favor of the resolution, 26 abstained, and six voted against the proposal that was put forth by the Palestinians, along with Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and Sudan. The resolution also condemns Israel on several issues related to Jerusalem and its holy sites, according to i24News. more >>
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 >>
Evangelicals who are exposed to a Christian Post writer's warning about Donald Trump's Satan-like bargain to evangelicals are more likely to have a negative opinion of the Republican presidential nominee, a new study has found.
A national experimental study conducted by four political science professors finds that white evangelical support for Trump could be partly due to an overwhelming majority of evangelicals not hearing their church leaders speak out against Trump.
While Trump continues to benefit from the support of white evangelicals in the electorate, many evangelical leaders have warned that Trump would be a dangerous choice. Among those, some have made "never Trump" arguments while others have been reluctant Trump supporters, because they see Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as even more dangerous. Only a few evangelical leaders have been enthusiastic Trump supporters or Hillary Clinton supporters. 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 >>
