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 >>
Christian author and speaker Joyce Meyer reflected in a sermon that the devil convinced her it was her own fault that her father sexually abused her throughout her childhood, and warned Christians that holding on to false guilt can be one of the biggest barriers to growing with God.
"The devil convinced me there must be something wrong with me, for him to want to do that to me," Meyer said in a sermon about God's righteousness posted on Monday, speaking about her father.
The evangelist noted that all her other friends and people that she knew weren't experiencing the same thing, which at the time led her to believe that "there must be something wrong with me." more >>
Bible-translation organization Wycliffe Associates has announced that it has helped a group of people living in Southeast Asia read the Bible in their native tongue for the first time ever, having waited for 182 years to do so.
"They've endured persecution. They've struggled to teach the Scriptures to their young people in other languages. They've been told for generations they have to keep waiting until Westerners can translate the Bible for them," said Bruce Smith, president and CEO of Wycliffe Associates, in a statement on the website.
Smith did not reveal which Southeast Asian group in particular the Bible translators managed to help, but noted that the first missionaries to the region shared the Gospel with them in 1834. more >>
The special one-night event, "Come to the Garden – On Stage!", which emphasizes the importance of heavenly beings, is being brought to the big screen by Fathom Events and Eakin Films on May 3. The son of three-time Grammy Award winner Michael W. Smith, Tyler Michael Smith, opened up to The Christian Post about his involvement in the project, his belief in angels and the impact his father has made on his life.
"I obviously grew up in a musical home. My dad being Michael W. Smith, he's been doing music since before I was born, so I was definitely born into it. It was always just a normal part of my life," Smith told CP.
Starting as early as age 5 with piano lessons, the successful composer has made music for a variety of different companies including Sony Pictures, Carmike Cinemas, Coca-Cola, and Cinemacon. He credits his love for making music to his father. more >>
"The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your relationships."
I am no fan of cliché inspirational quotes, but my personal experience has proven this one true.
I don't have a ton of close friends, but I do have a handful of people who are closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24) — and I consider myself the best kind of blessed to possess such treasure. Funny thing is, though, the people who make up my tight-knit social circle are not the types of people I ever would have envisioned myself associating with, much less calling my best friends. 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 >>
