A North Carolina pastor whose two baby sons died in a car accident on May 23 told mourners at their funeral that he and his wife have forgiven the driver of the truck that rear-ended the family's car near Wilmington.
As previously reported by The Christian Post, pastor Gentry Eddings of Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, his 8-months-pregnant wife, Hadley, and their 2-year-old son, Dobbs, were travelling on their way home in two separate cars when a box truck struck the car carrying Hadley and Dobbs.
Dobbs died in the accident, while Hadley was rushed to a nearby hospital where an emergency C-section was performed in hopes of saving Eddings' unborn child. The newborn baby, who they named Reed, survived only two days before Forest Hill Church announced last Monday that he had died. more >>

WASHINGTON — The wife of American pastor Saeed Abedini, who has been imprisoned in Iran for nearly three years because he held a Bible study, told Congress on Tuesday that despite being separated from both her husband and her children, Jesus has not abandoned her torn-apart family.
Speaking at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Americans currently imprisoned in Iran, Naghmeh Abedini explained that since her husband was detained in 2012 and sentenced to eight years in Iranian prison in 2013, she has needed to leave their two elementary-aged children at home while she has travelled across the globe to push for her husband's release.
"Most mornings like today, I wake up in a new hotel in a new city or country and am reminded of my new reality — a reality that includes lonely airports and empty hotel rooms," Abedini explained in her testimony. "This pain of this journey without my husband has only increased as I have had to frequently leave my children to advocate for my husband's release. The reality is, we are a family torn apart. more >>
As more and more people around the world are "summoning" a "Mexican demon" by participating in the newest social media craze, the "Charlie Charlie Challenge," renowned televangelist Pat Robertson warned on Friday that Demons are not something people want to mess around with.
In a special segment on Friday's 700 Club program, the 85-year-old Robertson asserted that demons are real and should not be summoned by playing little-kid games, like the "Charlie Charlie Challenge."
"Folks, like it or not, demons are real; they are not the figments of imagination. They are not playthings and they are certainly not parlor games," Robertson stated. "There are demons. Jesus dealt with demons. There were demons at the very beginning when Satan carried one-third of the angels away in rebellion and they are disembodied spirits that are looking to possess people." more >>

More and more people are posting videos to social media featuring them trying out the Charlie Charlie Challenge, which requires setting up a child-like apparatus with two pencils — that many believe mysteriously move — to indicate the presence of a "Mexican demon" known as Charlie.
Participants set up two pencils in the shape of a cross on top of a piece of paper that is divided into four sections— two yes sections and two no sections. With one pencil balanced on top of the other pencil, contestants asks questions like "Charlie, can we play?" and "Charlie, are you here?" more >>
