Snoop Dogg's recent Instagram post where he sings along to a popular gospel song probably won't make the cut on singing competition shows like "The Voice" or "Sunday Best," but that didn't stop the rapper from a little lighthearted crooning to a hit gospel tune.
In an Instagram post shared with his nearly 10 million followers on Sunday, the American Music Award-winning rapper sang along to Kirk Franklin's gospel hit "Silver and Gold" while filming what appeared to be his personal collection of silver and gold chains, jeweled Africa-shaped pendants, eyewear collection, and other glittering baubles.
"How you starting your Sunday morning off?" Snoop asks viewers, briefly focusing the camera on him — clad in a head scarf — before continuing to pan the room. more >>

Anne Graham Lotz, the daughter of famous evangelist Billy Graham, says some Christians are too afraid and ashamed to turn to God because of the mistakes they have made, but reminds believers God has proven His forgiveness and His love through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
"Are you hiding from God? Have you stopped praying and reading your Bible? Are you, in your heart and mind, closed to Him?" Lotz asked in a devotional on Monday.
"Deep down you're afraid of being found out. And the last thing you want to hear or read is His Word? Because you, too, are ashamed," she added. more >>
Evangelical leaders are asking whether Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump forgot, or entirely doesn't know about Jesus Christ's call to "turn the other cheek" in the Bible, following Trump's declaration last week that his favorite Bible verse is "an eye for an eye."
"My guess would be it would never be a gamble to overestimate Donald Trump's knowledge of Scripture. My guess is that he either does not know about Jesus' admonition to turn the other cheek, he has forgotten it, or just impulsively quoted the first thing that came to mind, which was the 'eye for and eye' quote. Much of what Trump says seems to be impulsive and spur of the moment sort of stream of consciousness rhetoric," Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, told The Christian Post in an email on Monday.
Pro-life students at Notre Dame University held a prayer vigil to showcase their opposition to the Catholic school honoring Vice President Joe Biden and former House Speaker John Boehner due to the two politicians' views on abortion and the death penalty.
Approximately 100 people attended the vigil, which took place on Notre Dame's campus on Sunday afternoon and was in reaction to the university announcing that Biden and Boehner were to receive the Laetare Medal in a ceremony in May.
According to the Notre Dame Students for Life's official club statement, "by awarding the Laetare Medal to these leaders, the university has in fact compromised its Catholic identity." more >>
Continuing his message series on the Book of Revelation, Pastor Greg Laurie of California's Harvest Fellowship Church explained in a sermon this week what heaven is like, answering common questions and breaking myths.
One day, we are going to be in heaven, but not everyone has that hope, Pastor Laurie said in his message entitled "What is Heaven Like," based on Revelation 4.
Christians have that hope, and "It's gonna be through death or through Rapture," Laurie said, adding, "I think the next event on the prophetic calendar is the Rapture of the Church, and following that would be the emergence of the anti-Christ, the rebuilding of the temple, the Great Tribulation and so on." more >>
