Actor Arturo Muyshondt believes his role as a modern day hero in "The Pastor" can spearhead positive social change in communities throughout the world that are overwhelmed by criminal gang activity.
"I was really shocked with what I found," said Muyshondt, who was born in El Salvador, to The Christian Post. "I found that these kids are joining these gangs as young as 9, 10, 11-years-old because they go looking for the same elements — for identity, brotherhood, community and protection."
Set in Brooklyn, New York, Muyshondt plays a former gang leader who discovers Christ in prison. When he's released, he seeks out underprivileged youth in his neighborhood to mentor and direct them toward a life that doesn't involve drugs and crime. more >>

Tuesday night South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley mentioned in her response to the State of the Union that angry voices were driving the Donald Trump campaign.
At a debate held at the North Charleston Coliseum and Performing Arts Center in South Carolina on Thursday evening, the Republican frontrunner responded, "I gladly accept the mantle of anger." more >>
President Barack Obama and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley both attacked Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump during Tuesday night's State of the Union address and the Republican response.
Trump was never mentioned by name, but statements were clearly aimed at his campaign.
That Obama took on Trump is no surprise, but that Haley used part of her speech, a speech designed to contrast Republicans with the president, to go after Trump is remarkable, and perhaps unprecedented. more >>
The Christian Post invited all the presidential candidates of both major parties to answer the same set of 12 questions. Here are Carly Fiorina's answers.
1. Why do you want to be president and what does your personal faith have to do with your decision?
Fiorina: I think our nation is at a pivotal point. Too many people fear that we are losing the sense of limitless possibility that has always defined this nation. Margaret Thatcher — a woman I greatly admire — once said that she was not content to manage the decline of a great nation. Neither am I. I am prepared to lead the resurgence of a great nation. more >>
