He can recite books of the Bible from memory, and this fall semester Tom Meyer, a member of Wordsower International Ministries, will be teaching a Bible memorization course at California-based Shasta Bible College and Graduate School.
"The students are graded on their accuracy of memorizing a smaller book in one semester and presenting that book dramatically, from memory, in their local church or in our chapel service," said Meyer, who told The Christian Post that he's limiting the course, which starts Aug. 25, to 12 students.
"Whether they memorize by reading aloud, hearing, or writing, the necessity to meditate on the text will establish the Word in their heart and hopefully provide them with a greater walk with God." more >>
Republican presidential candidate and retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson was asked in a Tuesday CBS News interview to clarify whether he opposes abortion in the cases of rape, incest and when the mother's life is in danger. The argument that abortion is justified when the mother's life is at risk is misleading, he answered.
While appearing on "CBS This Morning," The 63-year-old Carson was asked to respond to comments made by Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton, who recently attacked billionaire Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump for his misogynistic comments against women. She tried to lump in other GOP presidential candidates by calling their debate comments against abortion as being as "offensive" towards women as Trump's misogyny.
Carson initially responded by explaining that women have been instrumental in his life and praised his mother, wife and colleagues he has worked with. But not being satisfied with his answer, co-host Norah O'Donnell followed up by saying that the doctor's campaign website is not clear on where he stands on abortion in the cases of rape, incest and when the mother is at risk of losing her life. more >>
It doesn't really matter how tough of a parent you are, hearing you will be a grandfather will definitely make you jump in joy. A couple prepared a surprise pregnancy announcement for their parents. They set up a sign that had all the baby information on it and a hidden camera in the room. Their reaction is priceless!
While the grandmother-to-be reacts with a predictable excitement, grandpa is old school and keeps his emotions in check, until no one was watching … or so he thought. But their hidden camera captures the whole thing, and it is priceless. It goes to show that good news that brings a family together can sometimes even penetrate the hard exteriors. It's amazing to see how something like this can cause such a joyous reaction.

A recently presented paper at the American Psychological Association's annual convention claims that the controversial practice of sexting can be "a positive relationship behavior."
Authored by Ph.D. student Emily C. Stasko and Drexel University Psychology professor Pamela A. Geller, the research abstract argued that sexting has "both positive and negative" effects on relationships.
"Sexting is usually looked at as dangerous, but if it were only bad, it wouldn't be as popular as it is," Stasko asserted during an interview with The Christian Post, adding they were "surprised by the high rates of sexting we observed." more >>
