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 >>
New Zealand-born evangelist and creationist Ray Comfort, co-host of the "The Way of the Master" TV show, has said he will give the thousands of atheists attending the Reason Rally 2016 in Washington D.C. on June 4 $25,000 worth of Subway gift cards, alongside a copy of his book.
"Most atheists don't know that there's never been an atheist president, that no member of Congress is an atheist, that in some states it's illegal for atheists to run for office, and that recent surveys show atheists in America are about as popular as rapists. It's a fascinating read," Comfort said of the book, titled Why Pigs Will Fly Before America Has an Atheist President.
As for the gift cards that his Living Waters ministry will also be giving out, Comfort added: "The $25,000 worth of gift cards are a little something for them to chew on (we are hoping to feed 5,000 — it's been done before). more >>
Lecrae reveals in his new book, Unashamed that rappers Tupac and Ice Cube were his idols when he was craving acceptance and being led astray by a gang-banging uncle.
The Reach Records founder and Academy Award winner took to Facebook Sunday to share an excerpt from the book, which is set to release on Tuesday.
"I was hungry for male attention, and Uncle Chris offered a father-like relationship. I was hungry for acceptance, and Uncle Chris symbolized the promise of a family-like community. And I had idolized gangsta rappers like Tupac and Ice Cube and movies like 'Boyz In the Hood' and 'Menace to Society.' 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 >>
In Sunday's fifth episode of National Geographic's "The Story of God," actor Morgan Freeman continues his quest to find out why evil exists in the world.
"To understand why evil exists, we have to know where it comes from," Freeman says. "For Christianity, it could be the devil himself, or is evil something that comes from inside us?"
Growing up as a child in Mississippi, Freeman encountered his first experience with evil in the form of racism at a Greyhound bus station where white and black people were segregated and he was forced to enter through a door designated for "colored" people. Freeman explains that as a young boy, he was confused by the ordeal. more >>
