NEW YORK — Comedian and actor Kevin James could be one of the most lovable guys in Hollywood, according to some of his co-stars in "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2," who didn't have a bad word to say about him during the film's world premiere in New York City on Saturday.
James, a self-professing Catholic who credited his faith as something that helps him in every aspect of his life during a previous interview with The Christian Post, remains humble despite his fame and success in television and film.
"My faith helps me in everything; it shapes me and I always try to glorify Him in movies," he told CP in 2012. "We all make mistakes, and if I played an angel every time I'd be out of the business. There are faulted people, and there is good and evil." more >>
A global evangelical group joined leaders from the Roman Catholic Church and other religious denominations in an event at the United Nations to declare that nuclear weapons are contrary to faith, morality and reason, and to call for a ban on their possession.
The Bible "tells us that the peacemakers are blessed," Tyler Wigg-Stevenson, chair of the World Evangelical Alliance's Global Task Force on Nuclear Weapons, said at a public panel discussion at the United Nations headquarters in New York on "Nuclear Weapons and the Moral Compass" last week, according to a statement released by WEA on Monday.
Wigg-Stevenson reminded that Scripture "also tell us to condemn those who say 'peace, peace' when there is no peace — as the prophet Jeremiah did to the court sycophants in his day, who denied that the nation's injustice invited the judgment of God." more >>
NEW YORK — Lecrae's ascension to main stream hip-hop superstardom seems to be moving at the speed of light as his recent New York City stop on the Anomaly 2.0 tour was nothing less than captivating.
The Grammy-award winning emcee has stepped up his live show in ways that other Christian hip-hop artists will aspire to after seeing Anomaly 2.0.
Instead of simply belting out a bunch of songs, Lecrae created a story board that led to a salvation experience and conclusion. This not only added to the entertainment factor, but addressed his critics who feel he has become too "Hollywood" since his 2012 Gravity album. more >>
NEW YORK — The Jewish actor portraying Peter, the disciple whom Jesus Christ described as the "rock" on which he would build his church, insists that Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's new "A.D. The Bible Continues" series is not targeted only at Christian viewers.
"The words I use are faith, hope and love. It affects us all, so I don't think it matters what you are," Adam Levy told CP last week at the "A.D." premiere reception in New York City when asked if the series was primarily for Christians.
"At some point I will sit down with my children to watch it and I would say it's a universal story to be told to the world," he added. more >>
NEW YORK – A few hours before renowned neurosurgeon and potential GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson arrived at the Al Sharpton-led National Action Network's annual convention in New York City on Wednesday morning, people were reacting to the mere mention of his name, like a foul odor in a locked and crowded room.
By the time Carson, 63, was finished speaking to the same crowd later that evening, however, many were clamoring to shake his hand.
The country will have to wait until early May to find out whether or not Carson will run for presidential office in 2016, but until then, Carson has been quietly making the rounds, whittling away at public misconceptions about who he is, to define the man he wants America to see — the patriot, the Christian, the family man who believes in hard work, common sense and diversity. more >>
NEW YORK — Potential 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Dr. Ben Carson called the shooting death of 50-year-old father of four Walter Scott by South Carolina police officer Michael Slager, which was caught on video, "an execution" and a clear-cut case of police abuse.
"This situation with Walter Scott in South Carolina, you know I viewed that video with the same horror as I'm sure everyone here did. I was aghast that an execution could have occurred without a trial in the streets of America," Carson said to cheers in an address to members of Al Sharpton's National Action Network at the organization's annual convention in New York City Wednesday.
"This is such a clear-cut case that I believe it's going to give law enforcement in this country an opportunity to really tell us where they are in this controversy. They will have the opportunity to demonstrate which side they come down on. And I think that's actually a good thing because we need these clear-cut cases," Carson explained. more >>
