New Zealand-born evangelist Ray Comfort is best known by many for street evangelism in which he asks people about God, the Bible, sin and salvation. And on Tuesday the minister continued sharing the promise of eternity in Heaven for believers in a post-New Year's Day Facebook message to his followers.
Comfort's post, in it entirety, can be read below:
"Some people have the idea that Christians will spend eternity sitting on clouds playing rusty harps. If that's all I hoped for, I wouldn't be a Christian. The hope I have is not nebulous; it is concrete. It is an 'anchor of the soul,' and is both sure and steadfast. Here is my hope. Consider the beauty of this massive Earth. Think of a majestic snowcapped mountain, a clear babbling brook, or a beautiful beach with clean white sand and turquoise waters filled with an amazing array of brightly colored fish. more >>
"The Masked Saint" hits theaters Friday and lead actor Brett Granstaff says the film's message, told through the lens of wrestling, will reach a whole new audience.
"For people that say wrestling is bad or movies are bad, well, my gift is story telling and making movies, and maybe that's where God wants me to bring the Word to more people," Granstaff told The Christian Post.
"I think God gives a gift to everyone. Anyone can use a talent to help people find Christ," he said. "If you look at this movie, it might not be the typical faith-based movie [but] one of the reasons I wanted to do this film was because I think Christian films in general kinda preach to the choir." more >>
Following the phenomenal success of "Jurassic World," which grossed over $1.5 billion overseas and became the highest-grossing film of 2015, it came as no surprise to fans of the "Jurassic Park" series when Universal Pictures announced a sequel scheduled for release in 2018.
Since then, fans have been scouring the Internet for details on the sequel which, according to "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow, won't actually be called "Jurassic World 2." According to the director, the sequel will "get to be a different kind of film." In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Trevorrow said, "I feel like the audience has given us permission, to a certain extent, to take this to the next level."
"The next level" doesn't necessarily mean scale, according to Trevorrow, who said that, in his opinion, the sequel does not need to be about bigger or better dinosaurs. Instead, the "Jurassic World" helmer said, "It's about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals, and with animals in general, and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life." more >>

"I wouldn't look too hard in that movie for Thanos," Feige said in an interview with Empire magazine, fueling fan speculation for other potential main villains in "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2." more >>
After receiving the coveted title of Dragon Warrior in "Kung Fu Panda" and leading the Furious Five in battling Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) in "Kung Fu Panda 2," Po (Jack Black), the lovable warrior with an insatiable appetite for dumplings and noodles, must now take on a new role: that of kung fu mentor.
"Po, you must take the next step in your journey: from warrior to teacher," Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman) tells Po in the third trailer for the forthcoming "Kung Fu Panda 3."
Nearly five years after "Kung Fu Panda 2" and almost eight since "Kung Fu Panda," Po and his warrior friends, Tigress (Angelina Jolie), Monkey (Jackie Chan), Viper (Lucy Liu), Crane (David Cross), and Mantis (Seth Rogen), make their highly anticipated and long-awaited return in "Kung Fu Panda 3," which finally hits theaters this month. more >>
Following various rumors about who will helm Marvel's "Black Panther," Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed that "Creed" director Ryan Coogler is set to take the reins for the film.
29-year-old Coogler, whose first feature-length film was "Fruitvale Station" (2013), told VIBE in December, "I think when we have opportunities where you have people of color and minorities, filmmakers, producers, writers, directors making decisions on what stories to be made and actually going to work, then you prove that those works can have financial value."
Apart from announcing who will direct "Black Panther," Feige also revealed that the film will set up the next two Avengers films, "Avengers: Infinity War - Part I" (to be released in May 2018) and "Avengers: Infinity War - Part 2" (to be released in May 2019). In an interview for the February issue of Empire magazine, Feige said, "T'Challa's story is very important to us as it links to the next Avengers films, which is why we brought it forward." more >>
