India’s federal government has announced it will block foreign donations to a Christian missionary group founded by Mother Teresa amid a rise in attacks on religious minorities in the country.

On Christmas Day, India’s Ministry of Home Affairs said they found “adverse inputs” when reviewing the Missionaries of Charity’s renewal application. As a result, the faith-based nonprofit no longer meets eligibility requirements under the Foreign Contributions Regulation Act.

Congregant Punches Youth Pastor in the Face during Sunday Service

A Sunday service at Olivet Baptist Church (OBC) in Chattanooga, Tennessee, was disrupted after a man punched a pastor sitting in the front row in the face.

The altercation involved 34-year-old Marcus Williams, who assaulted Chris Sands, the church’s youth pastor and first assistant to Bishop Kevin Adams, while Adams preached from Matthew 2.

Video footage shows Williams approaching and swinging at Sands, who then stepped out from the pew to fight back. One churchgoer can be seen attempting to restrain Williams while others can be heard screaming, “hold him.” According to ChurchLeaders.com, Williams was later arrested and charged with assault.

An affidavit obtained by WTVC News says that Sands told police that Williams attacked him because he thought Sands had insulted...More

A Canadian pastor who had gone viral for forcefully criticizing the country’s coronavirus worship restrictions has been arrested again, this time for protesting outside the home of a government official.

Artur Pawlowski, the pastor of Street Church and the Cave of Adullam in Calgary, Alberta, who made videos documenting his multiple contentious exchanges with local law enforcement officials in the last year that went viral, was arrested Saturday along with his brother Dawid after protesting outside the home of Alberta Health Minister Jason Copping.

The arrest was conducted in a manner similar to the May 8 arrest of the two brothers, which took place on the middle of a busy street. As Pawlowski knelt on the road and...More

Suspected al-Shabaab militants tortured and killed at least six Christians, five of whom were reportedly beheaded, in a terror attack on a village in Kenya’s coastal Lamu region that borders Somalia, according to reports.

“It is an ugly sight of people’s bodies lying dead and houses smoking with fire. This is undeniably an awful terrorist attack,” said Pastor Stephen Sila, who was at the site of the attack in Widhu village in Lamu West on Monday morning, the U.S.-based persecution watchdog International Christian Concern reported.

“I counted seven houses that were torched down, four bodies of people burned beyond recognition inside the houses,” he was quoted as saying. “A body shot dead right outside a burned house and another beheaded...More

Weeks after it was first displayed on the Visitors Plaza outside the United Nations headquarters in November, the controversial “Guardian for International Peace and Security” sculpture many Christians likened to a biblical “End Times beast” is now gone.

Initial reports to The Christian Post suggested that the sculpture was removed from the Visitor’s Plaza in late December due to complaints from the public. Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the secretary-general, explained, however, that the display was temporary and was removed as scheduled.

Weeks after some church leaders in Jerusalem called for a special cultural heritage zone for Christians in Jerusalem, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem said Israeli radical fringe groups are seeking to drive the Christian community out of the city.

“Our presence in Jerusalem is under threat,” Theophilos III, the patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Jerusalem, wrote in an op-ed in The Times (of London).

Megachurch pastor Jamal Bryant, who leads New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Georgia, is among 25 faith leaders who have embarked on a hunger strike in a bid to push Congress to pass voting rights legislation by Martin L. King, Jr. Day on Jan. 17.

The pastors, who are all part of a coalition called Faith for Black Lives, began the hunger strike on Jan. 6, the first anniversary of the U.S. Capitol riot.

Rev. Stephen A. Green, chair of Faith for Black Lives and pastor of St. Luke AME Church in New York City, was not immediately available for comment when contacted by The Christian Post on Monday.

Ever since he was a young boy, North Carolina Pastor Frank Jacobs Sr.’s mother noticed he had a taste for expensive things. She warned him that he would have to get a good education to afford them. So he studied hard and ultimately became a pastor, earning nearly $400,000 in one year. It apparently wasn’t enough.

Earlier this month, Dena J. King, the U.S. attorney for the Western District of North Carolina, announced that Jacobs, 51, who led the Rock Worship Center Church in Charlotte from at least 2009 to 2018 and Quest Church in Charlotte from at least 2019 to 2021, pleaded guilty to tax and wire fraud.

Jacobs was accused of filing a false tax return and using fraudulent information to obtain...More

Christian Organization Pointed More Than 190,000 Young People to Christ through Technology in 2021

In 2021, more than 190,000 young people surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ as part of a Christian ministry's efforts.

Groundwire, an organization seeking to draw Millennials and Generation Z youth to Christ, uses popular media channels as a way to reach them.

"We're not going after the atheists. The media would want us to believe that everybody's an atheist, but, truthfully, 71 percent of Millennials [and] Gen Z believe that God's a real being," Seth Dunn, Groundwire's president, told Faithwire.

"What we're really good at doing is interrupting them on their entertainment — on their small screen — and bringing to light their need, their purpose," he explained. "We don't need to convince them that [God's] real. We need to...More

The brother of a Pakistani Christian man granted bail last week after spending years in prison is pleading with Pope Francis and other international leaders to evacuate and grant his brother asylum in a Western country as concerns about his health and safety persist.

On Thursday, the Supreme Court of Pakistan granted bail for Nadeem Samson, a Catholic who has been imprisoned in Pakistan for four years for blasphemy. Samson’s brother, Shakeel Anjum, a United States citizen, reacted to the development in an interview with The Christian Post.

Vatican Tightens COVID-19 Restrictions, Applies Mandatory Vaccination

In a decree signed Jan. 5, the Vatican tightened its COVID-19 regulations by requiring the use of FFP2 masks (similar to N95 masks) inside and making vaccinations and booster shots mandatory for employees and visitors wishing to enter the Vatican Museums and gardens.

The Governorate of Vatican City State issued a decree in early January requiring the use of FFP2 masks in “all closed spaces” as well as any other type of mask while outside, in accord with health regulations in most parts of Italy.

In an attached document, the Vatican also issued fines for people who do not respect the new regulations. Local media reported the fines range from over $28 to more than $1,700 for employees who fail to wear the FFP2 masks, don’t respect social distancing or don’t follow quarantine...More

China Upholds Christian's 7-Year Prison Sentence for Selling Bibles, Christian Books

China Upholds Christian's 7-Year Prison Sentence for Selling Bibles, Christian Books

A Chinese court has upheld a seven-year prison sentence for a businessman who was arrested and charged with “illegal business operation” for selling thousands of Bibles and Christian books.

Chen Yu, the owner of a Christian online bookstore, was sentenced in 2020 for selling more than 20,000 Bibles and Christian books – many of which were published in Taiwan and the United States, Bitter Winter reported. Law enforcement found more than 12,000 books on his premises and destroyed them.

An appeals court in recent days upheld that 2020 decision, Bitter Winter reported.

Chen had sold books to clients in Shandong, Henan and other provinces and was left “comparatively undisturbed” by authorities until 2019 when he was arrested, Bitter Winter said. The...More

Yet another underage girl in Pakistan has been abducted and forced to convert to Islam and marry her Muslim captor and police have allegedly been slow to act on the case, according to a report.

Mahnoor Ashraf, a 14-year-old Pentecostal Christian, has been missing since she left her home, along with her 8-year-old nephew in Lahore’s Cantonment area in Punjab province for a nearby shop on Jan. 4, Morning Star News reported.

The nephew later told Mahnoor’s parents that their Muslim neighbor, 45-year-old Muhammad Ali Khan Ghauri, had abducted her with the help of his friends.

When Mahnoor’s father, Ashraf Masih Chaudhry, went to the alleged abductor’s house, he was informed that he had been missing ever...More

Before the demonstration, Todd detailed that as he was preparing his message for the sermon this week, God used the words of late singer Johnny Nash's song "I Can See Clearly Now" to inspire him.

A Christian politician in Finland who faces the possibility of six years in prison for sharing her deeply held biblical beliefs on sexuality and marriage says it’s “quite a privilege” to be interrogated for her religious beliefs.

Parliament Member Päivi Räsänen, who was interrogated by police for over 13 hours and questioned on how she interprets the Apostle Paul’s letters in the Bible, will appear in court next Monday over criminal charges for voicing her belief on marriage and sexuality.

She authored a 2004 booklet on sexual ethics describing marriage as between one man and one woman. She also expressed her views on a 2019 radio show and tweeted church leadership on the...More

Canadian Pastor Warns New Law Will Prohibit Counseling, Sermons on Biblical Sexuality

Canadian Pastor Warns New Law Will Prohibit Counseling, Sermons on Biblical Sexuality

A prominent Canadian pastor says he will not obey a new Canadian law that prohibits changing an individual's sexual orientation or gender identity.

"We will never turn anyone away. We will never be silent, we will never shrink back," Tim Stephens, pastor of Fairview Baptist Church in Calgary, told members last week at his church. "We will never be ashamed of the gospel. We will always preach the truth, and we'll give counsel – biblical counsel – on gender and sexuality to all who will hear."

The new law, Bill C-4, prohibits conversion therapy but defines the term so broadly that Christian leaders across the country warn it bans not only certain forms of biblical counseling but also sermons on biblical sexuality. The law defines conversion therapy as a "practice, treatment or...More

The private portal stores information and allows for communication between students, faculty, and staff. It allows students to choose either: male, female, intersex, non-binary, transgender male, transgender female, cisgender, unspecified, and "I do not wish to self-identify."

YouTube Removes John MacArthur's Latest Sermon on Biblical Sexuality, Labels It 'Hate Speech'

YouTube has removed a recent sermon by Pastor John MacArthur in which he talks about biblical sexuality and asserts that God made humans as "male and female."

According to CBN News, MacArthur, who leads Grace Community Church in Los Angeles, CA, preached a sermon as part of a nationwide protest against a new Canadian law banning conversion therapy.

"There is no such thing as transgender," MacArthur said at the pulpit on Sunday. You are either XX or XY, that's it. God made man male and female. That is determined genetically, that is physiology, that is science, that is reality."

"On the one hand, the reality of that lie and deception is so damaging, so destructive, so isolating, so corrupting that it needs to be confronted, but on the other hand,...More

'Seismic Shift': Afghanistan Is the New Number 1 Most Dangerous Place for Christians

Afghanistan has supplanted North Korea as the world's most dangerous country for Christians, according to an annual watchdog report that says conditions have gone from bad to worse following the Taliban's 2021 takeover.

The Open Doors 2022 World Watch List places Afghanistan as No. 1 among the top 50 countries where it is most dangerous to be a Christian, followed by North Korea, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen. Among other notables: Iran is No. 9, Iraq No. 14 and China No. 17.

Most of the countries on the list are located in South Asia and North Africa.

It is the first time Afghanistan has been number one. David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors, told Christian Headlines that it's the most "seismic shift" in the report's history. The situation in North...More
