ERLC conference in the news
N.C. native Mark Harris has been an effective pastor of some great churches. So why is he running for the U.S. Senate? I sat down with him a few weeks ago to ask him that question. Read his response in this week’s Biblical Recorder and on BRnow.org.
There is a lot of talk about the Bible. Christians preach it and point to it as the foundation of our faith, which angers those who disagree with scriptures or reject it entirely. Movie producers use the Bible as a beginning point for cinematic productions. American Bible Society’s recent survey says many do not believe the Bible is "God’s book." Read this interesting article and my expanded view in this editorial.
I’ve been attending the ERLC Leadership Summit in Nashville, Tenn., this week. The speakers spoke frankly and biblically on a variety of topics relating to human sexuality – marriage, pornography, human trafficking – and ways the evangelical church should be addressing each topic.
Media reports on the conference are rolling out with mixed responses. The secular world does not understand our biblical sexual ethic, so their reporting shows signs of confusion. But watch for our reports over the next few days on BRnow.org.
