Renowned neurosurgeon and conservative star Benjamin Carson was up to his common sense ways again on Wednesday when he taught former Democratic Governor of Ohio Ted Strickland the importance of reading.
During an appearance on CNN's "Crossfire," host Stephanie Cutter asked Dr. Carson to clarify a comparison he made in his new book "One Nation" between modern day America and Nazi Germany, and tried to make an issue of it.
"To me, it doesn't sound like a complex statement at all," said Carson before reiterating his original comments. more >>
The Rev. Vanable H. Moody II, pastor of The Worship Center Christian Church in Bessemer, Alabama, and author of the new book, The People Factor, says it is time we do relationships right — at home, on the job and at church.
"Clearly, relationships can make the difference between a great life and a miserable existence," Moody writes in The People Factor: How Building Great Relationships and Ending Bad Ones Unlocks Your God-Given Purpose. "They can launch us into heights of excellence and achievement we never dreamed possible, or they can keep us down in the dumps, tethered to mediocrity for all of our days."
According to Moody, often referred to as Pastor Van, Christians cannot afford to take relationships lightly or for granted, as they are God's main mode of operation in the world. "Any and everything that God has ever done and will ever do in the world He does through people," he told The Christian Post. more >>
Most people find it difficult to get in tune with their inner voice amid their busy lives, however taking time to listen to a gut feeling or an instinct can lead to discovering a life of abundance and satisfaction, says Bishop T.D. Jakes.
In Jakes' new book, Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive, he writes about how individuals can re-discover their natural aptitudes and become in sync with opportunities life presents if they are willing to see beyond their current limitations.
Inspired by a safari trip to South Africa and derived from personal experiences, Jakes' material illustrates some of the major principles and secrets that successful individuals have applied to their lives, but rarely tell others. In addition, Jakes offers readers advice on knowing when to close a business deal, when to take a risk, and how to listen to their hearts. more >>
The same publishing company that has released titles by members of the Robertson family of "Duck Dynasty" and the Duggar family of "19 and Counting" will release a title by a former Christian contemporary artist who announced in 2010 that she was a lesbian.
According to the Howard Books website page for Facing the Music: Discovering Real Life, Real Love, and Real Faith, the memoir will be released in October.
"Jennifer Knapp's meteoric rise in the Christian music industry ended abruptly when she walked away and came out publicly as a lesbian. This is her story — of coming to Christ, of building a career, of admitting who she is, and of how her faith remained strong through it all," its description states. more >>
Retired neurosurgeon and conservative darling Ben Carson scored big points with the audience and actor Terry Crews in an appearance on ABC's "The View" Tuesday when he argued that welfare "doesn't provide a way out of poverty."
Carson who appeared on the show to promote his new book 'One Nation' was asked by Crews if he thought the welfare system in its current state is racist.
The neurosurgeon who was raised by a single mother argued that welfare works against people who are seeking to become independent productive citizens. more >>
