Two of America's most active exorcists say there is now a growing demand for their services as more unchurched Americans have been turning to them for help with demonic oppression, possession and other dark spiritual activity.
Father Gary Thomas, whose training in Rome is recounted in Matt Baglio's book The Rite: The Making of a Modern Exorcist, and Father Vincent Lampert, whose work was depicted on the Syfy series "Paranormal Witness" told The Telegraph that a confluence of conditions, including an expanding spiritual void in the lives of Americans, the diminishing authority of the Church, and the failure of the mental healthcare system has resulted in increased requests for spiritual intervention.
Both priests, who have more than 10 years of experience each as exorcists, say an overwhelming number of requests that they get from people seeking help are regularly diagnosed as actual manifestations of demonic attachment, infestation, vexation or full possession. more >>
Seventeen years after the deadly shooting at Columbine High School, contemporary Christian music artist Jeremy Camp wrote a Christian anthem in honor of the faith of Rachel Joy Scott, the first murder victim of the Columbine High School massacre.
"Hey Guys, I am excited to share this brand-new song and the world premiere of the music video we made for it. The song is also the title track to the new movie coming out on October 21st called 'I'm Not Ashamed,'" Camp wrote on Facebook along with his music video for the song, which features clips from the film.
Rachel Joy Scott was targeted because of her Christian faith. She was the first of 12 students and one teacher who were gunned down at Columbine on April 20, 1999, and the film, "I Am Not Ashamed" is based on her journals, which are said to be honest and heartfelt accounts of her life. more >>
Evangelist Ray Comfort's "The Atheist Delusion" movie, which claims that it's able to "destroy atheism with one scientific question," is set to premiere at the Ark Encounter, a life-sized Noah's Ark theme park in Kentucky.
"From the start, we were concerned that people wouldn't take seriously a movie that 'destroys atheism with one scientific question.' But it does exactly that by scientifically confirming the existence of God. Having a respected, scientifically based organization like Answers in Genesis being willing to premiere it is such an honor," Comfort said in a statement shared with CP.
While Living Waters Publications, Comfort's ministry, has claimed that thousands have already seen the movie thanks to pre-release paid downloads, Oct. 22 at the Ark is set to be the official release date. more >>
