DALLAS – While on the road promoting her upcoming film "Miracles From Heaven," popular actress Jennifer Garner ("Alias," "13 Going on 30," "Daredevil") said she hopes the inspirational film causes people to re-examine their faith and beliefs.
"I think we have to pour some positivity back into the world. I think it's so necessary to focus on what's wrong and how we can fix it but it's also so incredibly important to see the beauty that's around us all the time so that we can foster that," Garner told The Christian Post about the Sony Pictures Entertainment film. "We can raise and lift up the importance of the smallest miracles that happen around us everyday."
"Miracles From Heaven" recounts the real-life story of a 12-year-old girl name Anna (Kylie Rogers), who is the daughter of Christy Beam (Garner). Anna is suffering from a pseudo-obstruction motility disorder and is unable to eat, using feeding tubes for nutrition. One day, she has a near-death experience after falling from a tree and is subsequently cured of her disorder – a miracle that the Beam family credit to their Christian faith. more >>
Answers in Genesis CEO Ken Ham says evolution has become a religion for many secularists, pointing to "intolerance" in scientific communities whenever the possibility of the Creator is mentioned.
"If secularists were to be honest, they would fully acknowledge that from their perspective, when they die, that's it — they're dead. Then why do they even fight so vehemently against God? What is it that irks them so much about this?" Ham wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday in which he also calls out atheists, asking why they are so "vehemently" opposed to God.
"Well, the bottom line is that they know that if there is a God who created them, and if He is the God of the Bible, then He owns them, He sets the rules, and they are accountable to Him. It means, for example, that marriage is one man for one woman, that abortion is murder, and so on," he added. more >>
