Michelle Knight survived one of the worst ordeals at the hands of Ariel Castro, but the Christian woman says that she has forgiven her captor and rapist and will go on living her life.
Knight, who now goes by the name Lilly, was held captive by Castro for 11 years with two other girls. They managed to escape in 2013 and have largely avoided all contact with the press, but Knight has decided to stay in the limelight and tell her story, perhaps as an example of survival for others.
"I was able to forgive him," Knight said at Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin High School in Chadron, Ohio on Sunday. more >>
Actor Shia LaBeouf has said that he found God while working on his latest film, "Fury," and is now a saved and changed man, thanks to co-star Brad Pitt.
"I found God doing 'Fury,'" LaBeouf told Interview magazine. "I became a Christian man … in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page, but it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can't identify unless you're really going through it. It's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control."
LaBeouf's change of heart comes after months of speculation about his behavior. He was involved in a feud with Alec Baldwin during rehearsals for the play "Orphans" and later was found to have plagiarized his apology for plagiarizing a graphic novelist. He was also arrested for disturbing the production of "Cabaret," but said that he was trying to do performance art. He insists that he is a changed man, haven taken control of his life. more >>

"Christians need to be taught how to share the Gospel clearly and how to do so with an accurate and careful handling of Scripture," said EvanTell Founder and CEO Dr. R. Larry Moyer, the general editor and primary contributor to the study material in The Evangelism Study Bible. more >>
A 30-year-old missionary thinks big when he does evangelism – so big that it can sometimes require 2,000 missionaries and tens of thousands of people hearing the Gospel at a time.
Dominic Russo of Missions.Me made history last year in Central America when he took 2,000 missionaries to Honduras for a week to preach the Gospel, provide medical aid and create sustainable change in every state of the country.
"July 20, 2013 was the first day of the new Honduras. The entire time, our goal wasn't to move people to a moment where they pray a prayer but it was to make that moment the foundation and beginning of a new country," Russo told The Christian Post. more >>
Former "Hercules" star Kevin Sorbo has spoken out about his career and life in Hollywood, noting that if you are a conservative Christian, "you will get attacked."
"I think being a conservative in Hollywood and being a Christian in Hollywood, you get attacked," he told CNSNews. "It's so strange to me that the media sits there and protects the things that they protect, or they ignore the things that they ignore, and they go after stories like global warming—like that's more important than what's going on in the world right now with these terrorists."
Sorbo starred in the hit film "God's Not Dead" and can be seen in "Let the Lion Roar," where he portrays the legendary Protestant preacher and theologian John Calvin. Sorbo has been rather outspoken about his faith in recent years and is dedicated to spreading the Christian message of goodness and salvation rather than anything else. more >>
