Some people act as if they don't care about what might happen to them after they die, living only for the moment. The Rev. Billy Graham warns, however, that this mentality is foolish because Heaven and eternity are real.

The film "Pass the Light," which encourages younger generations to share the love of Jesus instead of cursing the darkness, is gearing up for an online release this month following its success in select theaters nationwide.
The movie follows Steve Bellafiore (Cameron Palatas), a religiously devout teen who yearns to become a football starter and works twice as hard as his high school peers to accomplish that goal.
Steve's work ethic and kindness radiate through his life. Upset by his parents' estrangement, Steve is even more disturbed by the message of hatred and intolerance espoused by Franklin Baumann ( Jon Gries), an extremist candidate for Congress.

Doss served as a Private First Class in the U.S. Army but refused to kill or carry a weapon into combat because of his personal beliefs as a Seventh-day Adventist. Consequently, he thought it was fitting to become a medic during the war. more >>
