Evangelist Ray Comfort has had his official Twitter account taken over by an unknown atheist who has given Comfort an ultimatum: stop "denigrating" nonbelievers or you won't get your Twitter account back.
Comfort, founder of Living Waters ministries, said on Friday that an unknown atheist had seized his Twitter account after one of his staff members had accidentally changed his username. When his initial username, RayComfort, became temporarily available, it was immediately snatched up by the mystery atheist.
"The atheist who took my Twitter name, then gave me an ultimatum. He said that he would return it if I made a public statement," Comfort told TheBlaze on Friday following the incident. "He tweeted that I must say that I would 'no longer denigrate, blame and demonize skeptics and nonbelievers, including agnostics and atheists,'" Comfort said. more >>

Billy Graham delivered what may be his last address to America last night in a short video entitled "The Cross," in which the world-recognized preacher asked America: "I know where I've come from, I know why I'm here, I know where I'm going, do you?"
Graham's message aired Thursday evening as the pastor celebrated his 95th birthday in Asheville, North Carolina with an estimated 900 attendees, including former vice presidential candidate and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. The 30-minute message was later made available for viewers to watch online on the My Hope with Billy Graham website, and will be made available in select broadcasting networks this weekend.
At age 95, Graham's most recent message has been dubbed as possibly being his last; the evangelical leader and former spiritual advisor to multiple U.S. presidents has suffered a series of medical ailments, including Parkinson's disease, in his old age. Graham's message in "The Cross" was one of both sadness and hope; the pastor lamented over how greatly America has distanced itself from God, and how he believes the nation is in "great need of a spiritual awakening." more >>
A Christian evangelist in Nepal has been murdered by a man who he prayed with for months, who lured him into his home at night and then slit his throat, reports have said.
"You are awakened at 3 am. with an urgent request from an acquaintance – one you've ministered to for months who is in desperate need of prayer for healing and deliverance. What do you do? Nepal evangelist Debalal faithfully arose from his bed and traveled 30-minutes away from his village to the home of 29-year old Kumar," the Indian Christian Activist Network reported, noting that the incident took place in Nepal late in October.
The man, Kumar, had apparently received prayers and fellowship from the evangelist many times before. On the night of the incident, the Christian, identified only as "Debelal," entered the man's house to pray, but was attacked by Kumar with an iron rod, and then slit his throat with a khukuri, a popular Nepali knife with a curved blade. more >>
Si Robertson, the beloved quirky uncle of the Robertson clan on the hit A&E television series "Duck Dynasty," said in a recent interview that he believes in light of recent gun violence in the U.S., what America needs most is not gun control, but "sin control."
"It ain't gun control we need, it's sin control," Si Robertson said in a recent interview with Men's Journal that addressed everything from his time serving in Vietnam to the immense success his family has experienced since their reality television show took off four seasons ago.
Si went on to say that he also hopes his family, although they are obtaining plenty of fame through their reality show, will not be put on a pedestal by their viewers. "Look, I worry that people put us on a pedestal now. We're human beings. We make mistakes just like everybody else," Si said. more >>
Famed evangelical preacher Billy Graham will be celebrating his 95th birthday in North Carolina next month, and his family has invited several well-known politicians and public figures to attend the celebration, including former President Bill Clinton, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and business magnate Donald Trump.
Graham's son Franklin told reporters this week that around 600 to 700 people have been invited to attend the Nov. 7 birthday bash in Asheville, North Carolina, near the town of Montreat, where the Grahams have their home.
The Grahams have previous ties to Palin, Clinton and Trump. In 2009, Palin traveled to Billy Graham's home in North Carolina to have dinner with the famed pastor. After the meeting, Graham released a statement saying it was an honor to meet the politician, adding that he was "impressed with her strong commitment to her faith, to family and love of country." more >>
