"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Tamra Judge got emotional while recalling her baptism ceremony, which will air as part of the show's season finale next week.
The Bravo TV star accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior in a ceremony that took place earlier this year and viewers will get to witness the special occasion on Oct. 12, ahead of the reunion show. California's Mission Viejo Christian Church Senior Pastor Mike Maiolo performed the baptism and Judge's loved ones, including her husband, Eddie, and co-stars attended the celebration.
"Do you believe that Jesus is the Christ, that He is the son of the living God, that He died on the cross and rose again for your sins?" Maiolo asks, to which Judge firmly replies "Yes." more >>
Christians need to question if they are growing or going backwards, as there's no other alternative, said Pastor Greg Laurie of megachurch Harvest Christian Center in his explanation of why believers and the Church need each other.
"If you're not growing as a Christian, if you're not advancing in your faith, that would begin the process of you going backwards," Laurie said as he began his message last week, as part of a series called, "What Every Growing Christian Needs to Know."
A believer doesn't backslide overnight; it's a slow, but sure, process, he said. Things of the world gradually start looking more appealing than things of God. more >>
Despite objections from religious leaders, doctors and disability rights advocates, lifelong Catholic California Gov. Jerry Brown who once flirted with becoming a Jesuit priest, announced Monday that he had signed a controversial bill allowing terminally ill patients to legally end their lives.
In a letter to members of the California State Assembly discussing his decision on the bill, ABX2 15, Brown, a Democrat, explained that he didn't think it should be a crime for "a dying person to end his life."
"The crux of the matter is whether the state of California should continue to make it a crime for a dying person to end his life, no matter how great his pain or suffering," Brown wrote in the letter. more >>
Prominent English social critic and author Os Guinness preached at Pastor Rick Warren's Saddleback church in California on Sunday, explaining to the congregation the real meaning of the word "calling" and how it applies in the life of each Christian.
Meaning, purpose and identity are things that everybody needs and yet there is a great deal of confusion about what they mean, said Guinness, author of the Global Charter of Conscience, launched at the European Parliament in Brussels in June 2012.
There is confusion also in the United States, he suggested, calling it a "cut-flower civilization." Our ideas were rooted in the Scriptures, Jewish and Christian ideals, he said. "But in the last generation, they've cut them. So the flower still looks beautiful, but in many parts of the country, they are dying." more >>

Treyarch's upcoming first-person shooter, "Call of Duty: Black Ops III," that's due to be released early next month, now has a new trailer that features the dark and dangerous setting of World War 2, with a surplus of guns and explosions.
