Former New Age writer Steven Bancarz, who amassed a fortune from his website, became a born-again Christian last September and is now on a mission to expose this dark spirituality for what it really is: a demonic deception.
In an inspiring video testimony posted on Facebook back in April that has since been viewed over 750,000 times — over 1 million times if you aggregate all of social media — Bancarz shares how Jesus Christ liberated him from the snares of the occult.
The 23-year-old native of Ontario, Canada, told The Christian Post that although he was raised in a Christian household the enemy seized upon his spiritually curious soul when he was in high school. In a remarkably short time he was steeped in occultic practices and built a website (now defunct) called Spirit Science and Metaphysics that was generating an average of $40,000 per month in ad revenue alone. more >>
"Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light" (Ephesians 5:14).
I recently heard a true story. A young girl, devastated by the choice her father made to leave her family for a younger woman, had a nightmare following his announcement. She dreamt that she, her mother and sister all died in a horrific car accident.
When she told her dad about the dream, he sympathetically replied, "I'm really sorry to hear that. I'm glad it was only a dream." more >>
The upcoming Disney feature film "Queen of Katwe" tells the inspiring true story of Ugandan teenager Phiona Mutesi and her mentor, missionary Robert Katende, who transforms children's lives through the game of chess.
The Chess Academy and Mentoring Center began in the slums of Kampala, Uganda, after Katende, then a soccer coach, noticed the children watching from the sidelines of soccer matches he had organized. The mission of the "Queen of Katwe" outreach is to use the game to teach strategic thinking and planning that can be useful in everyday life. The center started with only five students and now has over 300 who gather daily across five separate slum locations.
The film stars Academy Award-winner Lupita Nyong'o and Golden Globe nominee David Oyelowo, and highlights the impact Christian missions and outreach have on the people they serve. more >>
I believe that it is in my best interest to be holy as God is holy (1 Peter 1:16). I understand that my peace will become steadier and my joy sturdier as I grow into the Christ-like character that God has predestined me to possess (Romans 8:29).
I know that it is God's fatherly affection that drives him to discipline me toward this end (Hebrews 12:6), and that the pain of chastisement leads to the peaceful fruit of righteousness (Hebrews 12:9).
But even so, I hate that holy rod of correction with which God has, at times, inflicted great misery on my soul — yes, misery. more >>
