Four popular megachurch pastors are promising to bring an interesting combination of hope, comedy and honesty in a new faith-based talk show to be tested on FOX this summer called "The Preachers."
"The Preachers" will be hosted by John Gray, an associate pastor at Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas; E. Dewey Smith Jr., senior pastor at The House of Hope Atlanta and The House of Hope Macon; Orrick Quick, pastor and founder of God Seekers Church in High Point, North Carolina, and Jamal Bryant, pastor and founder of Empowerment Temple AME Church in Baltimore, Maryland.
Candace Cameron Bure recently wore her heart on her sleeve — literally.
The outspoken Christian actress sported a "Jesus" sweatshirt during an episode of "The View" last week. Bure donned a gray, long-sleeved top printed with the words "Jesus Saves, Bro." But did the shirt push the talk show host's religious beliefs on viewers?
The "Fuller House" star snapped a photo wearing the shirt, which she complemented with a pair of ripped jeans, on the set of the show and posted it to Facebook on Friday, as well as to Instagram and Twitter. The image garnered nearly 90,000 Facebook likes and more than 1,200 shares (as of the publication of this article) as many of Bure's friends and followers showed their support, and even joined in with photos wearing their own versions of the shirt. more >>

Pastor Greg Laurie pulled no punches in his warning to congregants of California-based Harvest Christian Fellowship Church Thursday night, explaining that Christians are living in the last days and tougher times lay ahead, in a message based on the Bible's book of Revelation 6-19 titled "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse."
"We are living in the last days and, yes, the worst is yet to come," said Laurie, listing major signs of the end times: "Antichrist. Armageddon. The great tribulation period. The four horsemen of the apocalypse."
The historic Doomsday Clock is ticking ever closer to global catastrophe, Laurie explained, saying according to scientists, it registers "3 minutes 'til Doomsday," when it says the world will experience a nuclear Armageddon. more >>
