After causing a stir among some in the Evangelical community for his earnest prayers to God to send help for 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump last Monday, conservative California pastor, David Jeremiah asked critics not to take his prayers for the real estate mogul as an endorsement.
"Dr. David Jeremiah has not officially endorsed any candidate, including Donald Trump. Dr. David Jeremiah has spent personal time with Ben Carson, and has been invited to speak with Jeb Bush in the next few days," Jeremiah's team noted in a statement on his Facebook page last Thursday.
Jeremiah was among about 40 religious leaders who gathered together at Trump's office in New York City last Monday to dialogue and offer prayers for the billionaire in his race for the White House and he asked God to send Trump a "strong African-American" to help him with the black vote. more >>
A 12-year-old girl from Brooklyn, New York, has said that she is on the road to recovery after Pope Francis met and blessed her during his visit to the city in September. The girl, Julia Bruzzese, said she believes in miracles, and thinks the meeting with the pontiff has greatly helped her.
Fox News reported on Sunday that Bruzzese had been forced to use a wheelchair after she suffered a sudden paralysis that doctors could not explain. While she had been apparently experiencing symptoms of Lyme disease, there had been no signs of the disease in her blood.

Minister D.A. Horton, an author, church planter and urban apologist completing his Ph.D. studies at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, knows first-hand what it is to be marginalized, tokenized and victimized as the member of a minority community.
He has a heart for urban ministry, particularly for urban youth, and is often tapped to speak on matters related to race and indigenous Christian leadership. more >>
Donald Trump's Evangelical outreach is mostly with preachers who mainstream Evangelicals would consider heretics, Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, says.
Despite his veneer of bombast and blunt pronouncements that sometimes bristle even the most composed of his political rivals, GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told about 40 religious leaders in a private Monday meeting that he is indeed "a man of faith," but just doesn't wear it on his sleeve.
Don Nori, founder of Christian book publisher Destiny Image, who was at the meeting held on the 26th floor of Trump Tower in New York City, told CNN that while Trump spoke to the leaders for a bit, he spent most of the time listening to their concerns and advice about him as a candidate. more >>
