The American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) gave American colleges a "C" for core curriculum with its 2013-2014 "What Will They Learn?" report. A Christian administrator explains the meaning behind the confusing offerings at college campuses and CP lists six of the strangest classes actually being taught this semester in colleges and universities across America.
Popular Youth Evangelist Matt Pitt might be in jail for the next 10 months but it's not stopping him from using everything in his power to get his fellow inmates to turn to the Lord. And last Thursday he revealed he was using the power of "beautiful women" to lure men into his church.
Despite speculation by the media and a number of Catholic scholars that Pope Francis could name the Church's first female cardinal next February, the Vatican has rebuked those claims, saying that the unprecedented event, which would go against Catholic Church doctrine, will not take place.
A bill meant to expand anti-discrimination employment policy to include gays and transgendered individuals may see its defeat in the House of Representatives. After the United States Senate voted to end cloture and bring the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) to the floor, House Speaker John Boehner expressed his opposition.
Since the 2012 elections, the number of states sanctioning same-sex marriage has doubled, but in the rush to appease some outspoken and politically-connected citizens, are the religious liberties of others being trampled?
It's become a favorite pastime among the press and punditry to blame the Tea Party for the problems plaguing the GOP. If those radicals would just shut up and go away, Republicans wouldn't be having so many problems.
Taking his series of sermons on Ten Commandments forward, Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, Wash., shared with his congregation what marriage is and what it is not, stressing on the gravity of the sin of adultery and sharing 11 practical, biblical ways to attack it.
What's worse than the silence of Western Christians concerning the Muslim persecution of their coreligionists in the Islamic world? Answer: Cynically exploiting that persecution for a political agenda—in the case of a recent Daily Beast article, to excoriate the state of Israel and its supporters.

The Rev. Billy Graham doesn't mean as much to me as he has meant to many other Americans. I am 30 years old, and the lion's share of his ministry was accomplished in my parents' and grandparents' generation. While I have an almost indescribable respect for him, I've never met him and I cannot count myself among the 215 million individuals who have heard him preach in 185 countries around the globe. His significance in my life has been largely historical.
In the South, political perspectives are as likely to be shaped by conversation between friends at the corner store as they are by The Washington Post or CNN. Most of us who take the time to vote make the decision based on the information at our disposal, cast our vote at the polls, and move on with our lives.

"God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Cor. 9:7) So why then does the topic of giving often leave many hearers with such little joy? You would think it would be just the opposite after everything Christ has done to redeem us.

Maybe it's a little of both.
