Just weeks before attending Super Bowl 50 with her pop superstar daughter Beyonce, Tina Knowles-Lawson was in church giving total praise while listening to one of her "favorite" gospel songs.
During the worship portion of a church service held at St. John's Houston, Knowles took a few seconds to shoot an Instagram clip of the worship band singing and playing to Richard Smallwood's 1996 song, "Total Praise."
"One of my favorite church songs : 'lift Your Hands in Total Praise,'" Knowles posted along with a clip of the entire church with hands lifted in worship. more >>
On Tuesday's episode of ABC's "The View," the co-hosts talked about an obscene word recently said by Donald Trump at a recent campaign rally. The topic then led to "Fuller House" actress Candace Cameron Bure expressing her disapproval for foul language.<
While speaking at the New hampshire rally Monday night, Republican candidate Trump brought up Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and his hesitation when it comes to waterboarding. The incident became a point of discussion on "The View's" Hot topics because the GOP candidate called attention to a woman in the crowd who used an obscene word to describe Cruz .
Trump immediately pointed out that "she just said a terrible thing," and proceeded to ask her to do it again. more >>
In honor of National Cancer Prevention Month in February, stress and cancer expert Dr. Pete Sulack released a list of things one can do to reduce the risk of getting cancer.
Sulack, founder of one of the fastest growing chiropractic clinics in the nation, has studied extensively the connection between stress and cancer.
"You can't possibly avoid every single cancer causing substance, and you can't avoid stress — it is a fact of life. What you can do, however, is counterbalance stress with daily choices that at least give you a fighting chance," said Sulack in a statement to The Christian Post. "You can adopt practices that make your body more resilient in the face of cancer. It doesn't really matter whether you are genetically predisposed to contracting a certain kind of cancer. What matters is the genetic expression that comes from your daily choices, behaviors, and habits. It has been said that genetics loads the gun, but daily choices pull the trigger." more >>
Doctors in China are amazed by a recent "miracle baby" that was pronounced dead, only to survive a night in the morgue and show signs of life moments before his cremation.
An An Lu was born two months premature on January 8 in Jinhua, Zhejiang Province, and spent 23 days in an incubator before his parents, surname Lu, were able to take their child home to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
The baby was only able to spend a few days at home with his family when he began showing signs of discoloration. Although his father rushed him back to the hospital, doctors pronounced him dead when his heart stopped beating and he stopped breathing. more >>
Recently I published a blog post about the great reward of putting off sin, dying to self, killing sin — whatever you want to call it. I wrote about the blessing of being able to see and enjoy Jesus more fully as we push sin out of the way.
Today I want to talk about how we actually do that. It may be encouraging to hear a pastor, Bible teacher, or even a measly blogger glory in the benefits of putting sin to death — or to phrase it in a positive sense, living in faithful obedience — but that encouragement can fade pretty quickly when you go home and realize you don't actually know how to do it effectively.
Some people believe (as evidenced in the comments section of last week's blog) that there is no sin-killing to be done on our part because Christ has already died to free us from the power of sin. Though I wholeheartedly agree that freedom from sin can only happen in and through Jesus Christ, I don't believe it is quite as passive or mystical as some folks describe it. more >>
