Perhaps if pastor Julius R. Malone of the New Testament Church of Milwaukee wasn't a praying man he would be dead today.
Just over a year ago in October 2013, according to Fox 6, Malone, who's been preaching at his church for 34 years, began having stomach pain. Concerned that the pain was a symptom of something serious, he sought medical help and doctors began treating him for acid reflux.
When the pain didn't go away, Malone said he decided to ask God about it in prayer and the Lord gave him a much more serious diagnosis. more >>
In an almost miraculous tale of survival, a dog that got caught 1.5 miles offshore on a sinking boat during a storm in California saved itself by swimming all the way back to land, then sought safety at a church only to be reunited with its owner who feared she had drowned.
Last Thursday, the city of Sausalito, California, experienced a storm described as the biggest to impact the area in several years.
Steve Alioto, the owner of the dog, Daisy, told CBS San Francisco that he'd anchored his boat because he couldn't afford to dock. He said he left Daisy on the boat while he went to help out a friend, but when he returned the only thing he saw of the boat was the mast sticking out of the water. He was devastated. more >>
The controversial nonprofit group Invisible Children, which produced two influential documentaries that helped heighten awareness of the abduction and use of children as soldiers by the Lord's Resistance Army in the Ugandan civil conflict, has announced that it will officially close down by the end of 2015.
The organization is most notable for the 30-minute "Kony 2012" documentary, which called for the arrest of LRA leader Joseph Kony and also called for greater U.S. involvement against the LRA. The documentary, which went viral on YouTube when it was published in March of 2012, received over 100 million views in a matter of five days and helped raise more than $30 million for their cause.
The organization's CEO, Ben Keesey, announced in a recent video statement that the group has had difficulty maintaining funding and it's no longer viable for the organization to continue operating at its current levels. more >>
These two brothers, Dallas and Brad Woodhouse, are opposing politicians. On this day, they were having a live debate on national television when something hilarious happened.
The station got a special call during the debate …it was their MOTHER! Immediately they were embarrassed because they couldn't believe she had actually called into the show. But, she actually inspired them to get together with the family more, and they even stopped fighting to listen to her speak. What she has to say about the house being divided is hilarious. Along with telling them what they had been doing wrong, she also speaks about politics.
We have all had funny encounters with our parents before, but these two got put on the spot on national TV. SHARE this video and tell us a funny story with your family in the comments below! more >>
Hollywood producer DeVon Franklin who worked on the hit 2014 film "Heaven Is for Real" recently talked with The Christian Post about the film's impact on both Hollywood and the lives of people who watched the movie.
The film, which tells the story of 4-year-old Colton Burpo, who claimed to have traveled to heaven during a near-death experience, was released earlier this year and took the movie world by storm grossing $22.5 million in its opening weekend.
"In Hollywood what 'Heaven Is for Real' showed is it really began to continue to legitimize that there's an audience out there that really wants more content that's uplifting, and I really think that 'Heaven Is for Real' has opened doors for other content to come to market. Not just in film, but in television," Franklin told CP Voice. more >>
