Megachurch pastor and author Erwin Raphael McManus appeared on a CNN program to comment on the debate surrounding the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, Jesus Christ's purported burial cloth. During his brief appearance, McManus made it clear, however, that the show's anchors had failed to ask the most relevant question.
McManus, pastor of California multi-site MOSAIC church, appeared Thursday on CNN's "This Hour," morning program hosted by John Berman and Kate Bolduan.
Berman and Bolduan wanted to know the pastor's thoughts on why there's so much curiosity about the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and why anyone would need scientific evidence to prove Jesus' existence. more >>
"19 Kids & Counting" star Jessa Duggar has spoken out and ruffled feathers by telling followers that those who do not believe in hell cannot truly believe in God.
"I will speak to you a hard truth," she posted on her Facebook account. "I do not write this because I think that it will bring me popularity. It won't. But it is Truth from the Word of God: the Bible. To not tell people this is to hide the truth from them. To keep silent is to not care for their eternal destiny! I care about you, and this is why I am speaking out!"
The newlywed also wrote about the nature of judgment and why one should be aware of the reality of hell. more >>
We have all made mistakes in our lives. Some we regret, and others in which were done for the better. We have said things we didn't really mean, but the truth is that the past is the past. We can't redo it. There is one place we can look to help us get past our mistakes … the Bible.
Many will try and look to many different places for help with mistakes. It is important for us not to repeat these mistakes, and to learn from them. The Bible is full of helpful scripture that will help give us a clear path and mind. Do not dwell on previous mistakes. It is also a great time to renew your relationship with God and be cleansed from sin.
God will forgive us for our mistakes, so we should forgive ourselves as well. more >>
The Rock Church's Marriage and Parenting Pastor Darren Carrington says parents need to teach their children from an early age about dating and marriage so they can spot "counterfeit" Christians who attend church but show no spiritual growth.
The NFL player-turned-pastor at the San Diego megachurch founded by Pastor Miles McPherson, also a former San Diego Chargers football player, said he started teaching his two daughters and son about marriage from birth, modeling with wife, Vickie, what a "loving, imperfect, fun marriage" looks like.
The Carringtons also began talking to their children about dating when they were 14 years old. However in this fast-paced society, Carrington suggests parents start talking to their children sooner. more >>
