Just in times for Valentines Day, writer and novelist Nicholas Sparks released his latest love tale, "The Choice." The popular author believes that faith is a central theme in the choices made throughout the film and maintains that all of his stories often illustrate the pursuit of God's will and the power of one's free will.
"I wanted to do a novel that was somewhat similar in structure to "The Notebook" in that it's a story that describes what happens to a couple after the honeymoon ends," said Sparks to The Christian Post. "Stories like those seem to add an additional authenticity to the story and it was an area that I wanted to explore in while being entirely different than "The Notebook.""
Critics are slamming the film for it's similarities to his stories in the past. Sparks admits that although similar in some ways there are a couple of original ideas behind "The Choice." The Lionsgate movie follows Travis Shaw (Benjamin Walker) who is a ladies' man that thinks a serious relationship would cramp his easygoing lifestyle. Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer) is a feisty medical student who's preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend (Tom Welling). Fate brings the two together as Gabby moves next door to Travis, sparking an irresistible attraction that upends both of their lives. As their bond grows, the unlikely couple must decide how far they're willing to go to keep the hope of love alive. more >>

While everyone flooded social media with posts about which team they were rooting for during Super Bowl 50, evangelist Franklin Graham took the opportunity to share the strong Christian faith of some of the players from both the Broncos and Panthers.
Franklin, who is following in the footsteps of his legendary father, Billy Graham, often uses social media to address mainstream topics through the lens of Christianity. While a fan of football himself and admittedly rooting for his home team the North Carolina Panthers, the minister took a moment to reflect on the faith of some of the men that he respects from both teams competing in Super Bowl 50.
"Did you know that Carolina Panthers Pro Bowl running back Jonathan Stewart puts on more than his shoulder pads, helmet, and uniform before playing football?" Graham wrote on Facebook on Super Bowl Sunday. "Every day he said he puts on the armor of God after he wakes up. Now that's real protection, and we all need it! The Bible says, 'Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.'" more >>
