Nick Jonas is no longer wearing his promise ring, which symbolized his pledge to remain abstinent until marriage, but said that he still has a strong relationship with God and love for the church.
"This is a real growth in me and that's not something I'm doing anymore," Jonas told HuffPost Live when asked about why he was no longer wearing the ring. "But I've got my set of values, things that are important to me now at this point in my life, and that's all that matters."
Jonas recently decided to establish himself as a solo artist and has a new song "Jealous" out as well as a role on the new DirecTV series "Kingdom." The role featured an intimate scene that left some feeling uncomfortable given Jonas' views on sex before marriage. However, he distanced himself from the emotional involvement and saw it merely as a role to fulfill. more >>

The new Adult Swim series "Black Jesus" has sparked some debate over the ethnicity of the historical Jesus Christ.
Christian rapper Tedashii was recently interviewed by VladTV.com where he discussed what Jesus' actual skin color was, and if Christ was closer to resembling an African man or a white European.
"The accuracy of Jesus' ethnicity matters to an extent for me, but probably because of my upbringing here [in the U.S.]," said Tedashii. "Growing up, there was this view of oppression that came from a certain people group, and then when you look to the God that you believe in, and the picture painted for you is the same individual, it does grow this kind of conflict within you to [say] alright, this doesn't make sense." more >>
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, said Sunday that it will take an army to beat the "radical Islamic army" of the Islamic State, or ISIS, otherwise the terrorists "will open the gates of hell to spill out on the world." He also suggested ISIS is capable of killing Americans in the United States.
"When the White House tells the world we say what we mean and we do what we say, nobody believes that anymore," Graham said on "Fox News Sunday."
"It's going to take an army to beat an army. And this idea we'll never have any boots on the ground to defeat them in Syria is fantasy. And all this has come home to roost over the last three years of incompetent decisions ..." he asserted. more >>
On Sunday night, TLC debuted a new series, "Angels Among Us," featuring Rosie Cepero, who claims she can speak with guardian angels, but is it actually possible to do so? The public, as well as the Bible has mixed answers when it comes to that particular question.
Cepero spoke with The Christian Post about an ability she claims to have that allows her to speak with unseen beings, which she said began when she was just three-years-old. Her mother and grandmother also claimed to be able to communicate with angels. Cepero was raised as a Catholic, however, she no longer identifies as such.
"My first encounter – I was 3-years-old – I remember people speaking to me, telling me how they would always be by my side, protecting me, teaching me things, and they would be with me for the rest of my life. As a little girl, to me it was normal, and I would always communicate with them. My mom was also very spiritual, and as a Catholic, we were taught to believe in angels," Cepero explained. more >>
