University to Pay Christian Prof $400,000 after Disciplining Him for Not Using Trans Pronoun

An Ohio university has settled a high-profile case with a Christian professor by saying it won't force him to use transgender pronouns and agreeing to pay $400,000 in damages and attorneys' fees.

Shawnee State University settled the case in recent days, approximately one year after the U.S. Sixth Court of Appeals sided with philosophy professor Nicholas Meriwether, a devout Christian who was disciplined by the school for not using the preferred pronouns of a transgender student.

The university "has agreed that Meriwether has the right to choose when to use, or avoid using, titles or pronouns when referring to or addressing students," according to Alliance Defending Freedom, which represented Meriwether. Further, the university agreed that Meriwether "will...More

City Attorney Hits Back at Atheists' Demands for Removal of Christian Crosses

An attorney for the town of Elizabethton, Tennessee, is defending the presence of three crosses on public land after atheists demanded their removal.

The move comes weeks after residents protested the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s (FFRF) demand the crosses be taken down from atop Lynn Mountain. As Faithwire previously reported, the atheist group claimed the religious symbols’ presence on city-owned land is a violation of the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

“They are crosses up there by themselves,” FFRF legal fellow Karen Heineman told WJHL-TV last month. “They seem to have a pretty obviously Christian message.”

She continued, “They have no other...More

Head of Islamic School Burned, Fired for Becoming Christian


The headteacher of a private Islamic school in eastern Uganda suffered third-degree burns and was fired after staff members heard him praying as a Christian, he said.

Yusufu Mwanje led Ibunbaz Primary School in Bugiri town, Bugiri District until he lost his job after the attack on April 2.

Mwanje said a Christian businessman who supplied equipment to the school used to pray at his office in the presence of other Muslim staff members, a welcome presence especially after the pandemic hit in 2020. His prayers opened his heart to Christ, Mwanje said.

As he and the supplier had more discussions about Christianity, Mwanje put his faith in Christ earlier this year, he said.

“I wanted to keep my faith in Christ secret and began missing Friday prayers as I...More

This Woman Was Clinically Dead, Then She Left Her Body and Saw a Glimpse of Heaven AND Hell

When Charlotte Holmes went to her doctor for a routine check-up, she got quite a shock. They told her, "Either you're having another stroke, or you're about to have a heart attack."

Her blood pressure had spiked to 234 over 134. Before long, Charlotte was having an out-of-body experience that turned heavenly.

"They called a code and they come running in. I was above my body. I could see them doing chest compressions. I could see them, all the nurses around. I could smell the most beautiful flowers I've ever smelled. And then I heard music. And when I opened my eyes, I knew where I was. I knew I was in Heaven."

In 2019, Charlotte Holmes was having a routine checkup with her cardiologist when her blood pressure...More

Viral Video of Christians Singing ‘How Great Is Our God’ on Flight Draws Mixed Responses

Over the Easter weekend, a clip of several Christians singing “How Great Is Our God” to passengers onboard a flight went viral, with over 30 million views on social media. It drew praise and backlash from users online.

According to TMZ, ministry leader Jack Jensz Jr. and his team were onboard the plane towards Germany following their relief work in Ukraine when the incident took place.

In a response video on Instagram, Jensz Jr. explained that his team had been providing humanitarian aid, food, and prayer to Ukrainian refugees at the Ukrainian border in the past month.

“There is no medical explanation.” That’s what Father Karl Pung of Saint Mary Cathedral in Lansing, Michigan, said about a parishioner who spent nearly 13 years in a wheelchair.

The woman, who was also on a ventilator after suffering for years with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and autonomic dysfunction, believes she was miraculously healed last month — and Pung agrees.

In a video released by the Diocese of Lansing, Dani Laurion said she was at a special healing service at Saint Mary Cathedral on March 15, 2022, when something astonishing unfolded as she lifted her hands to God in worship.

“I reached up, and I just said, ‘I need you, and I need...More

Biden Administration to Repeal Trump Rule Protecting Christian Doctors Opposed to Abortion

The Biden administration will overturn a Trump-era rule that protects health care workers from being forced to perform procedures they oppose on religious or moral grounds – such as abortion, assisted suicide and sex-reassignment surgery, according to a new report.

The Trump administration rule, released in 2019, protects religious health care workers “from having to provide, participate in, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for” services they oppose on the basis of conscience. The rule referenced abortion, assisted suicide, sterilization and gender dysphoria as areas that may face objections from health care professionals. The rule was championed by multiple faith-based groups, including the Christian Medical and Dental Associations.

Hillsong Boston Pastor Josh Kimes Resigns, Admits to Sending Racist Text to Colleagues

Josh Kimes and his wife, Leona, have resigned as co-pastors at Hillsong Boston, adding to a growing list of pastors who have left the global megachurch in the wake of recent controversies.

Josh, who attended Hillsong for 22 years and pastored at Hillsong churches for 16 years, broke the news of his family’s departure in a statement posted on his Facebook page on Sunday.

“While it’s never been in our plans to leave Hillsong, we’ve made the difficult decision to resign as we know God is directing our steps to walk confidently and humbly into the unknown and trust Him to open the right door & plant us,” he wrote in the statement.

Despite resigning, Josh asserted that he and Leona still love Hillsong, the staff at the Boston campus, and...More

Street Preacher Acquitted of 'Hate Speech' Charges for Sermon on Biblical Marriage

Street Preacher Acquitted of 'Hate Speech' Charges for Sermon on Biblical Marriage

An elderly street preacher who was arrested in London last April has been acquitted of "hate speech" charges for his public message on biblical marriage.

According to the website Conservative Woman, Pastor John Sherwood of the Penn Free Methodist Church of Penn, England, was acquitted of the charges by the Uxbridge Magistrates' Court on April 7.

As Christian Headlines previously reported, Sherwood was arrested in April 2021 at the center of Uxbridge, London, for preaching on the biblical definition of marriage as outlined in the book of Genesis.

At the time, the street preacher spoke on Genesis 1:27-28, which reads: "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them,...More

University Punished Students for Their Biblical View of Marriage: Suit

The University of Idaho violated the religious liberty and free speech rights of three law students by punishing them due to their biblical beliefs about marriage, according to a new federal lawsuit filed Monday.

According to the suit, the three students – Peter Perlot, Mark Miller, and Ryan Alexander – were attending a community event on April 1 to condemn the use of an LGBT slur when a fellow student approached them and asked why the Christian Legal Society (CLS) requires its officers to affirm that marriage is between one man and one woman. The three men are members of the Christian Legal Society chapter at the University of Idaho.

One member responded that the chapter "requires this because it is the only view of marriage and sexuality affirmed in the Bible," according...More

Federal Judge Condemns Satanic Temple During Fight to Lead Prayer at Boston City Council

Federal Judge Condemns Satanic Temple During Fight to Lead Prayer at Boston City Council

A federal judge in Boston has given The Satanic Temple (TST) a slap on the wrist during the group's court battle to open Boston City Council meetings with a satanic "prayer."

The judge said TST had acted in "bad faith" by using questionable tactics, accusing the group of merely trying to gain publicity for its legal fight.

According to The Well News, TST sued the Boston City Council in Jan. 2021, arguing that the council violated the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and the free exercise clause of the Massachusetts Constitution by not inviting the Satanists to "pray" before their meetings.

Last October, the Satanists tried to subpoena then-City Councilor Michelle Wu to show up for a Nov. 2, 2021 deposition at their...More

Christian Couple in Sudan Faces Possible Flogging for 'Adultery'

Christian Couple in Sudan Faces Possible Flogging for 'Adultery'

A couple in Sudan could be punished with 100 lashes after being charged with “adultery” because a sharia (Islamic law) court annulled their marriage due to the husband’s conversion to Christianity, their attorney said.

Hamouda Tia Kafi, 34, and Nada Hamad Shukralah, 25, of Al Bageir, Al Jazirah state, were Muslims when they married in 2016, but when Kafi put his faith in Christ in 2018, his wife’s family sought and won a sharia court decision to dissolve their marriage, their attorney said.

The sharia court annulled the marriage on the basis of Kafi’s conversion as apostasy was a crime punishable by death at the time. In 2020, following the end of President Omar al-Bashir’s Islamist regime in 2019, Sudan decriminalized apostasy, and in 2021 Shukralah converted to...More

United Methodists Finally Split Over LGBTQ Policies, Conservatives Officially Launch Global Church

United Methodists Finally Split Over LGBTQ Policies, Conservatives Officially Launch Global Church

Conservatives have officially parted ways with the United Methodist Church (UMC) after years of debate on same-sex marriage and the ordination of openly gay pastors.

The new denomination, called the Global Methodist Church, took effect on Sunday following a five-day meeting with UMC bishops.

As CBN News has previously reported, church members have been at odds for years with some members in the United States leading the call for full inclusion of LGBTQ people within the denomination.

While other mainline Protestant denominations have embraced gay-friendly practices, the UMC still bans them, though acts of defiance by pro-LGBT clergy have multiplied. Many have performed same-sex weddings. Others...More

A pair of Russian priests are speaking out in opposition to Vladimir Putin's military campaign in Ukraine, despite the risk of imprisonment or angering Russian Orthodox Church officials.

As CBN News previously reported, Putin and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, the Russian church's leader, have partnered to justify the Ukrainian campaign as a "holy war."

Father Georgy Edelshtein and Father Ioann Burdin are reportedly among several priests from the Russian church who are expressing their disappointment with the state.

During an interview with Agence France-Presse (AFP), Edelshtein, 89, acknowledged that Russia is the "aggressor" and...More

Christian Schools Flooded with Applications as Controversies Plague Public Education

Nestled in the rolling hills of northern Virginia sits a sprawling tree-lined campus. Classrooms inside this shuttered private school sit empty. Once-busy halls are eerily silent. Each room looks like a time capsule of better days. But not for long.

"After much prayer and discussion with our elders, and pastoral leadership, we will be launching Cornerstone Christian Academy," said Senior Pastor Gary Hamrick.

Hamrick got a standing ovation after making that announcement during recent Sunday services at Cornerstone Chapel in Leesburg.

The campus is about 20 miles from Cornerstone Chapel the church that will open the school in the fall of '23.

Initially, there will be enough space for 500...More

18 Christians in India Jailed, Fight False Charge of Five Years ago

Christians falsely charged with crimes related to an act of vandalism in central India five years ago spent five days in jail and are fighting the case anew after it mysteriously resurfaced, sources said.

The 18 Christians, including a widow, in Chhattisgarh state’s Bhelwapal village, Sukma District, were jailed March 9-14 even though one of the traditional tribal animists who falsely accused them in 2017 has since become a Christian and has explained how they were framed.

Tribal villagers who damaged a pastor’s house and church building in 2017 smashed a Hindu idol and told officers the pastor had done it in an effort to justify why they had vandalized his property, according to the church leader, Pastor Hidma Sodi.

'Preaching the Gospel May One Day Become Hate Speech,' Legal Expert Warns

Noting that certain tenets of the Christian faith are growing more unpopular each year, two prominent attorneys on Thursday called on believers to pray for the Supreme Court and the rest of the judicial system, saying it’s essential that judges follow the Constitution and not the whims of the culture.

David Nammo, CEO of the Christian Legal Society, and Gregory S. Baylor, senior counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, made the comments on the National Day of Prayer, emphasizing that Justices need prayer just as politicians do. They spoke during a virtual event sponsored by MyFaithVotes.org.

“I think one of the specific ways we can pray for judges is that they don't get kind of sucked into the deep polarization and tribalism that's plaguing our culture right now,” Baylor said. “We...More

At Least Eight Slain in Attack on Christian Area of Borno State, Nigeria

At least eight people were killed in an attack on Tuesday evening (May 3) by Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists on a predominantly Christian village in northeastern Nigeria, sources said.

In the latest of several attacks by the Islamic extremists on Christian communities in Chibok County, Borno state, ISWAP militants stormed Kautikari town after 6 p.m., not only shooting people dead but looting properties and destroying many homes, area residents said.

“Kautikari community is right now being attacked by ISWAP (Boko Haram) terrorists,” area resident Musa Nkeki told Morning Star News in a text message. “Your prayer is urgently needed for God’s intervention.”

Resident Yohanna Daniel also texted Morning Star News, saying, “We need security intervention...More

The Satanic Temple (TST) is requesting to fly a flag over Boston City Hall after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled this week that the city violated the free speech rights of a conservative activist seeking to fly a Christian flag on a pole outside the downtown building.

Based in Salem, Massachusetts, TST tweeted a request filed Tuesday with the city property management department to raise a flag marking "Satanic Appreciation Week" from July 23-29.

As CBN News reported, the high court ruled unanimously Monday that Boston discriminated against local resident Hal Shurtleff because of his "religious viewpoint," even though it had routinely...More

Canada's 'Medical Assistance in Dying' Expands and Expands

Canada's 'Medical Assistance in Dying' Expands and Expands

In 2015, Canada’s Supreme Court struck down a 22-year ban on assisted suicide. The next year, its parliament passed legislation allowing “MAID,” or Medical Assistance in Dying for those who suffer from terminal illness and whose death was “reasonably foreseeable.” Five years later, the “reasonably foreseeable” language was dropped, as was the requirement of terminal illness.

Today, ending one’s life with “medical assistance” simply requires a physician and a witness to agree that physical or mental suffering is such as “cannot be relieved under conditions that you (the patient) consider acceptable.” Next year, that will expand to include anyone with a mental illness, like PTSD or depression. There’s also talk about expanding the practice to include...More

Another Weak Link in Evolutionary Theory

Another Weak Link in Evolutionary Theory

Something long considered reliable evidence for Darwinian evolution, the chemical similarity of living things, is now in question.

In 1973, leading Neo-Darwinist Theodosius Dobzhansky wrote that “nothing in biology makes sense except in light of evolution.” He specifically pointed to “biochemical universals,” or shared features in the chemistry of life, as evidence that all creatures “arose from inanimate matter only once” and that everything alive today descended from an universal common ancestor.

Today, however, discoveries in molecular biology have complicated that conclusion. In fact, a new paper poses one of the strongest challenges yet to the idea that all life shares common chemistry. Though the title, “Scaling Laws in Enzyme Function Reveal a New Kind of Biochemical Universality,” may be...More

Christianity Has Nothing to Hide

Christianity Has Nothing to Hide

Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of a public high school football coach who was fired for praying on the field after games. Though the firing should never have happened, this now years-long controversy has provided a window into how many in our culture feel about Christian prayer. Hint: they’re not positive feelings.

Still, one specific prayer, known as the Serenity Prayer, remains a part of our shared cultural language and a staple of addiction recovery meetings: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Of course, Alcoholics Anonymous’ official position is that the “God” of the Serenity Prayer can be any sort of Higher Power you wish, but it is profound that most addiction recovery...More

Woe to Those Who Call Evil Good

Woe to Those Who Call Evil Good

The title for this article comes from the oft-quoted Isaiah 5:20, "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil. …" Isaiah's "woe" was designed to awaken and convict the nation to turn back to God before the hammer dropped. Sadly, that didn't happen. A lack of fear, repentance, and reverence for God led to physical and spiritual judgment.

In the Bible, the word "woe" carries the idea of impending judgment brought on by the wrath of God in sin. It signifies overwhelming grief, sorrow, and regret, accompanied by suffering.

The word "woe" adds a power-packed punch to what the prophet Isaiah is vocalizing. In essence, he is saying, "Listen, this is serious! If you don't heed my advice, the judgment and justice of God will fall, and the hammer will hit hard."

It's been said that not even Sodom and Gomorrah...More

Two Christians Killed in Church Burning in Uganda

Two Christians Killed in Church Burning in Uganda

Two Christians died when Muslim extremists on Thursday (May 5) set fire to a church building in southern Uganda, sources said.

Most of the Christians holding an all-night prayer vigil had left when the structure of Holy Healing Ministry International Church in the city of Jinja’s Mpumudde ward was set ablaze at about 4 a.m., said church Pastor George Kato.

“The fire weakened the church structure and forced it to collapse,” Pastor Kato told Morning Star News. “I managed to escape with other remaining few members, but two elderly members were trapped inside, and the fire burned them beyond recognition.”

Nickelodeon Star Kel Mitchell Opens Up about Being a Pastor while Working in Hollywood

Actor and comedian Kel Mitchell, best known for his roles on Nickelodeon’s All That and Kenan and Kel, recently detailed how God carried him through depression and suicidal thoughts.

Despite growing up in a Christian household, Mitchell shared that he had walked away from God after achieving fame in Hollywood.

“I grew up in the church,” he told Faithwire in a recent interview. “My grandfather was a pastor, but there is a difference between basically knowing God and having a relationship with God.”

Despite hitting success, Mitchell struggled with severe bouts of depression, including suicidal thoughts.

“I was just kind of like, ‘I want to [hit] the off button,’” the actor recalled. “When I decided not to take my life...More

Franklin Graham Encourages Churches to 'Celebrate Life' amid Pro-Abortion Protests following Leaked SCOTUS Draft Opinion

On Saturday, evangelist Franklin Graham shared a special Mother's Day message during which he encouraged churches to "celebrate life" despite pro-choice protests against the Supreme Court's leaked draft opinion on overturning Roe v. Wade.

"The Left is calling for protestors to show up at churches this Sunday—Mother's Day—to protest the Supreme Court's vote on Roe v. Wade," Graham wrote on Facebook. "My response was, GREAT—BRING IT ON!"

The evangelist hoped that churches on Sunday would be packed "in greater numbers than ever before — to celebrate and thank God for our mothers, and to celebrate LIFE."

As reported by The Washington Examiner, several pro-choice groups announced protests outside Catholic Churches on...More

Denzel Washington Pinpoints Key Warning Sign of the Last Days

Denzel Washington Pinpoints Key Warning Sign of the Last Days

Actor Denzel Washington does not mince words when it comes to his faith in God. In one recent newspaper interview, Washington reiterated that he is a "God-fearing man" while also warning people to not become too self-focused.

Lately, he's been making more and more headlines with comments based on his Christian faith, heaven, and making an eternal impact on earth. He was most recently seen in a video advising several players from the Miami Heat, “Last thing I’ll say, which I’ve said a lot of times: You never see a U-Haul behind a hearse,” he explained, alluding to the fact that material items will not come with you to the afterlife. “I’ll say it again,” he continued, “You never see a U-Haul behind a hearse. Can’t take it with you....More

90-Year-Old Bishop Arrested in Hong Kong for Supporting Democracy

90-Year-Old Bishop Arrested in Hong Kong for Supporting Democracy


Authorities in Hong Kong arrested a 90-year-old former Catholic bishop over his reported support for a pro-democracy group.

Officials have repeatedly detained Cardinal Joseph Zen — the former bishop of Hong Kong — due to his role as a trustee with the group 612 Humanitarian Relief Fund, according to the National Catholic Register. The fund has helped pay legal fees for people who took part in the 2019 pro-democracy protests, which were ultimately quashed by Chinese authorities. The group, it should be noted, closed its doors in 2021.

While the Vatican has not yet addressed Zen’s arrest, social media users and thought leaders are urging Catholic leaders to speak out on the cardinal’s behalf. Others are urging believers to...More

Kidnapped Priest in Kaduna, Nigeria Killed by Captors

A Roman Catholic priest kidnapped in early March in the city of Kaduna, in northern Nigeria, was killed around April 18-20, according to church officials.

The Rev. Joseph Aketeh Bako, parish priest of St. John’s Catholic Church, was kidnapped at about 1 a.m. on March 8 from his home at the church premises in the Kudenda area of Kaduna city, Kaduna state, in a raid that killed a security guard.

California Pentecostal Church Confirms 3-year-old Girl Died during Attempted Exorcism

A small Pentecostal church in San Jose, California, has confirmed the death of a 3-year-old girl following an attempted exorcism last September.

On September 24 at 6:30 pm, Arely Naomi Proctor was brought to Iglesia Apostoles y Profetas by her mother, Claudia Hernandez, and her uncle. Hernandez claimed that her daughter was "possessed by an evil spirit" because she would wake up periodically in the middle of the night screaming and crying.

At the church, Hernandez, Proctor's uncle and Rene Huezo, the church's pastor and the girl's grandfather, tried to conduct an exorcism on the child. She died about 12 hours later.

According to the police report, Hernandez tried "to stick her finger down the victim's throat and squeezed the victim's neck to induce...More

Church Refers to God as a Female during Mother's Day Service

Texas Church Refers to God as a Female during Mother's Day Service

On Sunday, a progressive church in Texas referred to God as female throughout its Mother’s Day service.

“You’re a Good, Good Mother,” the worship team at Austin New Church in Austin, Texas, sang on Sunday.

The worship team also changed the lyrics in the song “Wonderful Maker” by singing that God has “the heart of a mother.”

As reported, leaders at Austin New Church also delivered messages in which they described God as female. When reciting Psalm 23 and the Lord’s Prayer, leaders also used female pronouns for God.

“We profess that we all bear the image of God, but how can we see God in ourselves if we don’t see ourselves in God? If God is only male, if God is only white, what possibilities does that limit for those of us whose identity markers are...More

A Christian student stoned to death at a college in northwest Nigeria on Thursday (May 12) was falsely accused of blaspheming the prophet of Islam because she had refused to date a Muslim, sources said.

Christians Left without Homes after Easter Attack in India

Christians Left without Homes after Easter Attack in India

Tribal villagers in eastern India assaulted three Christian families and destroyed their homes on Easter Sunday (April 17), sources said.

The assailants, followers of tribal nature-worshipping religion, were upset that the Christian families in Odisha state’s Ejariguda village, Malkangiri District, were preparing for Easter rather than their traditional festival, said the first victim, Podia Madkami, whose three daughters were kidnapped in an assault by tribal villagers 10 years ago and remain missing.

The only three Christian families in the village are unable to return to the properties where their homes lay demolished due to threats on their lives, they said.

Madkami, 45, said he and his wife Budri Madkami were at home preparing for an Easter service...More

NK Authorities Murder Christians for Secretly Worshipping Jesus, Innocent Relatives Arrested, Imprisoned, Tortured

NK Authorities Murder Christians for Secretly Worshipping Jesus, Innocent Relatives Arrested, Imprisoned, Tortured

The scope of persecution against Christians in North Korea has now reached the point where it is illegal to worship Jesus or even own a Bible. And the penalty is usually death.

According to reports, many believers are still gathering in secret to pray and share God's Word with one another.

Open Doors USA recently reported that government security guards discovered one such location where dozens of Christians had assembled together. The guards detained all of them. Then one by one, they killed every Christians in the room.

It is suspected that the information about the meeting time and place was leaked to local authorities.

Sadly, the Christians were not the only...More

The Great Cost of Preaching without Prayer—Theology without Fire

The Great Cost of Preaching without Prayer—Theology without Fire

Throughout church history—from the reformation to revival — pivotal shifts have taken place to get us back on track. These critical moments are often centered around sound doctrine, but the catalyst is always prayer, brokenness, and humility.

Today we find ourselves in another dilemma. The drift of so-called “liberal” churches is apparent. It's been estimated that nearly 72 percent of all churches don’t look to the Bible as their final source of authority and direction. No wonder America is crumbling from within—the foundation is deteriorating!

Although disheartening, my main concern is not necessarily with these numbers since God often uses a small remnant to fulfill His purposes. My main concern is with the remnant that needs to be...More

A grandmother who was arrested in the UK for walking and praying silently near an abortion clinic is still awaiting trial a year after her arrest.

On that particular day, she walked past an abortion clinic and prayed silently. Lalor wore a face mask and kept a distance from others.

A police officer stopped the 76-year-old and asked why she was outdoors. When she said that she was "walking and praying," the officer reportedly told her that...More

2,000-Year-Old Underground Turkish City May Have Sheltered Persecuted Christians

2,000-Year-Old Underground Turkish City May Have Sheltered Persecuted Christians

An underground city in southeastern Turkey built roughly 2,000 years ago is believed to have sheltered early Christians amid Roman persecution.

The ancient complex, known as Matiate, is located in the Midyat district of Mardin province. It was first uncovered in 2020 and is believed to be the largest underground city in the world, the Jerusalem Post reports.

Gani Tarkan, the director of the Mardin Museum and head of the excavation, explained that the underground city was likely built as a refuge for Christians fleeing Roman persecution.

"Matiate has been used uninterruptedly for 1,900 years. It was first built as a hiding place or escape area," he told Daily Sabah.

"As it is known, Christianity was not an official...More
