DeVon Franklin and his actress wife, Meagan Good, released a book centered around relationships earlier this year, but the Hollywood executive and minister insists that people need to figure out who they are before looking to obtain a significant other.
"When you don't have a clear idea of who you are and a sense of individual self, you then will allow yourself to be subjected to the madness of dating, and it will control you instead of you having control over it," he said in an Instagram video.
Earlier this year, Franklin and Good released their joint book The Wait: A Powerful Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love which has become a New York Times best seller. In the book the Hollywood couple writes about more than just their love story, advising people about the benefits of celibacy, offering dating advice and giving practical tips that help people focus on faith that can transform relationships. more >>

"I like to think of miracles as a great way to engage young people, to get them excited about the faith," author, Michael O'Neill told Catholic News Agency about his book, Exploring the Miraculous.
"They shouldn't be the centrality of anybody's faith, but it's a way to open the door for people ... so I think miracles can play a huge role in evangelization." more >>
Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says she is ready to vote for Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump at the November elections, expressing hope that he can change and become a man of God like King Nebuchadnezzar in the Bible.
"The Democratic Party has so come against God in some of their major issues, that I'm not sure I can vote for the Democratic platform. But whoever is on the Republican side, I will vote for and pray for whoever that is," Lotz said in an interview with Fox News, published on Monday.
When asked whether she can vote for Trump, who is likely to secure the nomination but has faced pushback from notable Evangelical Christians, such as Southern Baptist Convention leader Russell Moore, Lotz said the Bible is full of examples of kings who have changed their ways. more >>
While American involvement in church may be on the decline these days, what remains of great interest to many is the End Times and what the Bible has to say about it.
Items like "Blood Moons," the Rapture, and predictions over specific dates for the end have captivated countless people in the United States and the world at large. Yet what do people mean when they talk about the Rapture or Millennialism? What do theologians have to say about the Tribulation, the Second Coming, and the final Judgment?
