Haaz Sleiman, the actor playing the title character in National Geographic's upcoming "Killing Jesus" drama, has said that it was a "dream come true" to portray a figure whose teachings have so strongly affected his life.
Sleiman, known for his 2007 role in "The Visitor," stated in a previously recorded on-set interview shared exclusively with The Christian Post that before being cast to play Jesus, he had been "going through a lot" in his life.
"And I used a lot of Jesus' teachings, you know, to apply it in my life. So when this part came, it was sort of magical to me that I would be doing this and everything that he taught, I believed in," Sleiman said. more >>
Glen Campbell is in the final stages of his battle with Alzheimer's, but his family's battle over his assets has only just begun after the singer's two eldest children petitioned to wrest legal power from his wife of 32 years.
Reports arose on Thursday revealing that Campbell's children, Debby Campbell-Cloyd and Travis Campbell, filed a court petition in January demanding that Kim Campbell relinquish medical and financial authority over their father and his assets. The pair claim that their stepmother is keeping their 78-year-old father "secluded from the rest of the family" which has "prohibited [them] from participating in his care and/or treatment," according to the Associated Press.
The petition also claims that Campbell is not providing her husband with necessary toiletries and clothing, not visiting him regularly and possibly mishandling his finances. Moreover, Campbell and Campbell-Cloyd's petition claims that several of his children are not on his list of allowed visitors. The iconic country music singer has eight children in total; the youngest three he shares with Kim. more >>

"CSI: Cyber," the newest member of the "CSI" crime procedural franchise premiered with solid numbers last Wednesday, March 5 on CBS. It had 10.3 million viewers watching, with the other shows in other networks trailing at 5.28 million viewers only. Some television critics are speculating that this may be the case because it is the first episode and viewers are eager to see how the show will perform.
The new series, which is a spin-off from the original crime procedural show "CSI: Las Vegas," is about an FBI Cyber Crime team that deals with illegal activities that happen online and "play out in the real world" of crime. It stars Oscar awardee Patricia Arquette as Special Agent Avery Ryan, a Ph.D. cyber-psychologist and head of FBI's Cyber Crime Division. Her team includes Senior Special Agent Elijah Mundo, played by James Van Der Beek of the Dawson's Creek fame.

God, by His design, has laid out the best way — mentally, physically and emotionally — to have a sexual relationship, and that doesn't include homosexuality and gay marriage, according to Alan Robertson, a former pastor and eldest son of reality TV star Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty" fame.
"I've had the same conversation with folks who have same-sex attraction as I have with men and women who are living together. I tell them all the same thing: God has a design and a plan for your life, and this is what He's laid out as the best way to have a sexual relationship on Earth, biblically."
He continued, "I put it in the context that anything outside of what I believe the Bible teaches about the design for marriage and the design for a husband and wife to have a sexual relationship that's exclusive to them [isn't biblical, and isn't part of God's design]." more >>
