I have one on my Android phone as do many Christians I know. How about you? This infographic provides some amazing statistics on how many people are using the YouVersion mobile Bible.
The first set of taxpayer-funded abortions under the new healthcare law President Barack Obama signed has been approved by the Obama administration. Even though Obama and his allies told the public that taxpayers would not be paying for abortions under the law, unsurprisingly they will be.
In a victory for the fight to maintain the definition of traditional marriage between one man and one woman, Hawaii’s Governor, Linda Lingle, vetoed a bill Tuesday that would have legalized same-sex civil unions.
For years, the Collier County School District allowed World Changers to offer Bibles to interested students during non-school hours on Jan. 16 in honor of Religious Freedom Day. But since last year, the superintendent and the Community Request Committee have refused to grant permission to the Southern Baptist Convention-related mission group to do so. Now World Changers is suing the school for banning Bible distribution on public school campuses on Religious Freedom Day.
The Christian Post is reporting that the Wisconsin Supreme Court upheld a state constitutional amendment today that affirms traditional marriage and bans same-sex civil unions.
In yet another blow to our religious freedoms, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that a Christian student group must accept gays and non-Christians as members if it wants to be officially recognized by a public university.

When I heard that President Barak Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize, my first thought was , “For what?” Many in the world share the same thought. Then a friend sent me a very interesting write-up on another individual who was in consideration for the prize in 2007 but was passed over for Al Gore. I thought I’d post it here for your consideration.
Want to reach God on Twitter? Not that you really need a Twitter account to talk to the Almighty as He already hears the prayers of the righteous. That be it may, an Israeli university student has taken upon himself to open a Twitter account that will allow fellow tweeters to tweet prayers that he will then place in the crevices of Jerusalem’s Western Wall, a Jewish holy site that faithful believe provides a direct line to the Almighty.
Just prior to Jesus’ crucifixion he told his disciples, “If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you” (John 15:19).
