The ministry leader believed declining US churches could be revitalized by hearing Wesleyans “with a different accent.”H Eddie Fox, who hoped to renew American Methodism through evangelism and increased connections with global Christianity, died on Wednesday at age 83.Fox led World Methodist Evangelism for 25 years, teaching, training, and empowering Methodists and Wesleyans to share their faith, and encouraging churches to make evangelism a priority. He pioneered several new initiatives that were popular in United Methodist Church (UMC) congregations, and he helped American churches connect with fellow Wesleyans outside the United States, especially in formerly communist countries after the collapse of the Soviet Union.From 1989 to 2014, when Fox directed the world evangelism program, Methodists increased around the globe by about 1 million per year, even as the US membership of the UMC declined by about 2 million overall. Fox saw a direct link between the theology of the church and its vitality.“Wherever the church is faithful to the doctrine, the sound teaching, the Discipline, the way of life—which is the way you order your life—and the spirit, openness to the Holy Spirit, you'll find a church that's dynamic, contagious and alive,” he said when he retired. “And where that is not true, you’ll find a church to be a dead sect, having the form but not the power thereof. That’s been a focus of my ministry. It’s been a call we’ve stood on for many, many years.”Fox taught more Methodists how to share their faith than any one else in his lifetime, and became, for many, the evangelistic face of Methodism. He also taught at the Billy Graham School of Evangelism at Wheaton College for 15 years.“He was dynamic and alive with his passion for the gospel, especially evangelism,” ...Continue reading...

I know he’ll be able to hit the ground running from day one to combat religious persecution.”Judd Birdsall, a senior research fellow at the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University who served with Hussain at the State Department from 2009–2011, told CT that the nomination is a “fantastic choice” because Hussain has “impeccable credentials, extensive diplomatic and legal experience, ...Continue reading...

Biden's Vaccine Push: A Mandate with Destiny --->Biden's Vaccine Push: A Mandate with Destiny July 30, 2021 By Tony PerkinsJoe Biden isn't a doctor, and he's certainly not your doctor. But that hasn't stopped the president of the United States from making every Americans' ...
Here are “The 7” top trending items at FRC over the past seven days:1. Update: CDC: Why Mask? Don’t AskNew CDC guidance is directing vaccinated persons to wear masks indoors and is urging everyone in K-12 schools to wear masks in the fall. The guidance reversed the rules the CDC issued earlier this year, which recognized that people vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear masks because they are immune, at least to its most harmful effects. So why are they being asked to wear masks?2. Update: CRT Shape-shifting in EducationConservatives are trying to keep parents from falling for the White House’s line that it’s backing away from critical race theory in the classroom. That’s the impression Education Secretary Miguel Cardona was going for when he said that the department made an “error” promoting a radical group’s CRT theories. Some people cheered, thinking the White House had finally seen the light. Don’t buy it.3. Blog: What Christians Need to Know About the Case that Could Overturn Roe and CaseyMost Americans are familiar with Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. Many Americans, however, have not yet heard of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Center, an upcoming Supreme Court case that could overturn Roe and likely return jurisdiction over abortion legislation to the states.4. Blog: How Should Christians Think About “Wokeness”?Since its beginnings in the first century, the church has faced varied resistance from the surrounding culture and challenges to the gospel. Recently, a new challenge has emerged: “wokeness.” On the surface, wokeness might sound good. But, it embraces theories and ideologies inconsistent with, or even hostile to, the Bible. And many well-intentioned Christians are adopting this ideology.5. Washington Watch: Chip Roy, Matthew Spalding, Bob Gibson, Meg KilgannonTony was joined by Chip Roy, U.S. Representative for Texas, who called out Dr. Fauci for spreading misinformation. Matthew Spalding, associate vice president and dean of the Van Andel Graduate School of Government for Hillsdale College in Washington, D.C., talked about new advancements in history education, including Hillsdale College’s new 1776 curriculum. Bob Gibson, Russell County School Board member, shared his school board unanimously rejected Virginia’s transgender school policy. And, Meg Kilgannon, FRC’s senior fellow for education studies, discussed the possible return of mask mandates in schools.6. Washington Watch: Roger Marshall, Kristina Wong, August Pfluger, Mark GreenTony was joined by Roger Marshall, U.S. Senator for Kansas, who shared why it would be disastrous to close down the economy or impose vaccine and mask mandates. Kristina Wong, reporter for Breitbart News, detailed what happened during the first hearing of the January 6th House Select Committee. August Pfluger, U.S. Representative for Texas, questioned why President Biden is rejecting Cuban refugees while leaving the southern border wide open. And, Mark Green, U.S. Representative for Tennessee, critiqued the National Defense Authorization Act provision that forces women to register for the draft.7. Pray Vote Stand Broadcast: Saving HydeOn this edition of Pray Vote Stand, Tony Perkins was joined by Rep. Lisa McClain, Rep. Andy Harris, Chuck Donovan, and Ryan Bomberger to pray for the Hyde Amendment to be saved—and for the bloodshed that’s robbed this nation of millions of innocent lives to end.
