Promise Keepers CEO Responds to Hollywood’s Attack on Masculinity

Why America’s Second-Largest Protestant Denomination Might Break Up This Weekend

This weekend, leaders of the United Methodist Church (UMC) will convene to vote on whether or not the United States’ second-largest Protestant denomination will allow same-sex marriage and ordained LGBT clergy. The vote—which is the culmination of several years of interdenominational conflict—may fracture the UMC, no matter which side wins.

The Greatest Secret I’ve Learned About Prayer

I’ll never forget where I was sitting in the Orlando airport in Florida several years ago when I heard an unusual announcement on the public-address system. A male voice said: “George Mueller. George Mueller. Please contact a service desk for a message.”

Hollywood Gives Abortion and R Rating

Hollywood, which worships at the altar of a woman’s “right” to abortion, is about to be shaken by a new movie. It is called Unplanned, and it tells the story of Abby Johnson, formerly a Planned Parenthood clinic director but today a passionate pro-life leader.

Jesus Doesn’t Ignore Sexual Abuse—He Confronts It

Catholic leaders will meet for four days this week at the Vatican for an unprecedented summit on sexual abuse. The meeting comes just days after Pope Francis took the surprising step of defrocking Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Washington, D.C.—after proof that he abused both minors and adults and even solicited sex from parishioners during their confessions.

How I Adjusted My Spoiled American Attitude

I spent the last two weeks ministering in Uganda, where I’ve made some of the best friends on the planet. But life is not easy here—at least not for a “Mazungu” (white person) who has become so accustomed to American conveniences.

Jentezen Franklin ‘Stunned’ at Abhorrent Wickedness Piercing the Land

As I write this article, I sit stunned at both the wickedness of man and the silence of Christ’s followers and ambassadors. Surely every Christian leader in America felt a seismic shift in their spirit as the slaughter of more innocent children has been legislated in one state and spelled out and defended by the governor in another.

Looking for Love: Don’t Just Sit Around Waiting

I have several single friends who hate February. They don’t send flowers or candy on Valentine’s Day. They don’t wait an hour for a restaurant table on Feb. 14 with all the other love-struck couples. This holiday is just a painful reminder that romance has eluded them.

“What the Global Ministry Forums are NOT”

In a few days, I will travel to California to host the first of twenty-three Global Forums, as mandated by the 77th General Assembly. With a break in the Summer for Camp Meetings and Regional Conventions, the Executive Committee will conclude the final Forum next November. Rather than expect our Church of God constituency to travel to any one place such as Cleveland, Tennessee to communicate ideas about church issues, I’m pleased that representatives from the Executive Committee can travel to twenty-three regions, making discussion and dialogue opportunities more accessible. I will attend and host each of the forums, and to keep travel costs to a minimum, in most locations I will be accompanied by only one Executive Committee Member.

New York’s Abortion Law Is Cruel and Revolting

At the foot of the rebuilt World Trade Center in New York City, a somber 9/11 monument features the names of the 2,606 people who died in the terrorist attack. Besides those names, it also mentions 11 unborn children. The phrase “and her unborn child” is inscribed after the names of pregnant 9/11 victims.
