Jennifer Garner Returned to Church After Appearing in Faith-Based Movie

Actress Jennifer Garner is starring in an upcoming movie called Miracles from Heaven. The film is based on the true story of the Beam family who had to lean on their faith during their daughter's near-death experience and her long battle with a chronic digestive disease. Garner, who plays Christy Beam, the mother of the young girl, got a lot more out of the experience than just a good movie. While on the road promoting the film, she stopped by Bishop T.D. Jakes' church to attend Sunday service and spoke about the life-changing impact the movie has played in her personal life. "I fell so in love with this family, I fell so in love with their love for each other. I fell so in love with their faith. It was a transformative experience to play this woman right here, she made me stronger," she said about playing Christy. Garner hasn't openly spoken about her faith in the past, a fact she attributes to her community in Los Angeles. "[Faith] is a topic that has become very political. If you're a person of faith, you are so on the outside, that there's no way to bridge to somebody that's 'normal'," she shared during a Q&A in Dallas. The actress noted that the normal posture of the industry doesn't include talking about faith in between takes, but this movie was very different in that respect. A fact that she says had an impact on her family: I will say that being around this community, and while I've always gone to church in West Virginia, that when I got back to Los Angeles, I was talking to my kids about the movie and they said, 'Mom you don't take us to church,' and we went that Sunday, and they went today without me. That decision was a direct gift from this movie and for that I'm very grateful.

Carly Rae Jepsen Just Remade the ‘Full House’ Theme Song

Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen has released a new version of the classic theme song to Full House, and it will take you back to the TGIF glory days. Check it out below. The Fuller House reboot, with Jepsen's new theme, drops this weekend on Netflix.

Kel Mitchell Says 'Good Burger 2' Might Be a Thing

What a time to be alive. This year truly is the year of reboots and we aren't mad about it. But the newest and best reboot announcement hasn't arrived on a silver platter, but wrapped in fast food paper and shoved in a bag of condiments: A Good Burger sequel may be in the works. During an interview on the Brown and Scoop podcast, Kel Mitchell gave us a bright glimmer of hope, “Everybody is talking about a Good Burger 2, us doing a Bad Boys type of film. Me and Kenan have definitely been talking about it. You might definitely see something coming up with me and him soon. We have definitely been talking about doing something big for the fans, because everybody has been looking for it. They want us back together.” Indeed they do, Kel. Indeed they do. We have no confirmation or expected dates for the Nickelodeon movie reboot, so until we once again hear those magic words: "Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?" we'll just have to watch the original (now on Netflix) on repeat or there's always Jimmy Fallon.

Selena Gomez Surprised Concert Goers at Hillsong Show

Singer Selena Gomez surprised some unsuspecting concert goers this week—at a Hillsong Young & Free concert. She showed up at L.A.'s Belasco Theatre and performed her song "Nobody" with the Australian worship outfit. Back in October, the singer replied to a fan on Twitter, who asked what inspired her to write the song on her new album album, "God," Gomez said, adding that "'Nobody' is about Him." And, when you break down the lyrics, it's actually a moving worship song, to which the crowd at Thursday's show can attest. Watch it below.

7 Signs You’re Spending Too Much Time Looking at Your Phone

Recent research has confirmed that cell phone “addiction” is actually a real thing. Professionals have even devised methods of determining if you suffer from a psychological condition that warrants actual medical intervention ( symptoms include : reduction of competing behaviors, engaging in the behavior despite risks and negative consequences, withdrawal, etc.). But even if you’re not neurologically dependent on playing Kim Kardashian’s iPhone game for a few moments while you’re pumping gas, there still may be ways to determine that you are spending too much time looking at your phone.

How Christians Ruin Dating

I don't think there is one person who has the title "The One," but rather God leads you to someone and puts those desires in your heart to pursue a future with them, and to honor Him and live for Him not just in your relationship with that person, but in every aspect of your life along the way. Not everything or everyone put in front of you is a test, which I used to believe. I had forgot that the Lord is good, and he knows what I need and knows my heart is after him, and honors that! God led me to my boyfriend through crazy circumstances. We aren't perfectly compatible, he wasn't everything on my "list" -- he is who I ACTUALLY needed. Not someone just like me or this perfect picture of a worship leader / knight in shining armor. He is real, he has taught me so much through his relationship with the Lord, and he is so many things I wish I was. We're not each others' "types" if you will, but we still are so attracted to each other. It has been the Lord who led us to each other and grew us closer, and I believe has given us the desire to be together. It's really profound to me.

The 5 Friends You Really Need

But when you only surround ourselves with a chorus of people who nod and amen at every turn of the conversation, you begin to lose touch with people from other walks of life. It’s easy to make straw men and stereotypes of people who hold opposing views, but when “those other people” are your trusted friends, it’s harder to dismiss their ideas. Instead, you’ll be pushed to listen more honestly and grapple with these differences in the context of a relationship. And not only that, but having friends with whom you hold clashing views can lead to spirited conversations that would have never happened in like-minded community.

Six Things Submission Is Not

What is submission not , according to 1 Peter 3:1–6? When I preached on this passage probably twenty years ago, women in my church found this question really helpful because we bring to the text presuppositions from our experience. You might hear submission means six or seven things, and five of those sound horrible to you, and two look okay.

Trump: I 'Like' Obamacare's Individual Mandate

The most unpopular part of Obamacare now has a champion in the Republican presidential field. Via the Right Scoop, Donald Trump was asked on Thursday night by CNN's Anderson Cooper, If…there's no mandate for everybody to have insurance, what's to—why would an insurance company not have a preexisting—insure somebody with a preexisting condition? Trump replied, Well, I like the mandate. Okay, so here's where I'm a little bit different. I don't want people dying on the streets. And I say this all the time. Well, that's certainly a little bit different—in fact, it's hard to get a lot more different than to run for president as a Republican and support the hated cornerstone of President Obama's signature legislation. This mandate for everybody to have insurance is, of course, the unprecedented requirement that, for the first time in the more than 200 years of United States history, private American citizens must buy a product or service of the federal government's choosing merely as a condition of living in their own country.

Why All Christians Should Care about Biblical Theology

The kingdom of God functions as the thematic framework for biblical theology. This is the theme within which all others themes exist and are united. It is the realm of the prophet, priest, and king; the place of wisdom and the scribe; the world of the apostles, and now elders and deacons in the church. Every biblical theme is a kingdom of God theme. If Jesus is the theological bull’s eye on the biblical target, then the kingdom of God travels on the path of redemptive history to arrive at that target. If Jesus as the theological center gives meaning to the biblical message, then the kingdom of God as the thematic framework provides the context for that message.

8 Biographies Everyone Should Read

In today's intellectual climate of specialization, I would like to see more biographies like the Metaxas book. What exactly is Bonhoeffer scholarship standards? If a Bonehoeffer scholar wrote a book about Bonehoeffer, it might not be accessible to the public. My question is--------why aren't there more writers like Metaxas who will make important figures understandable to the public? I read half of the Metaxas book (I had to give it back to my friend) and I found it to be weighty and researched. I especially enjoyed the part of Metaxas book about Bonehoeffer's time in America and his dilemma about what to do here. Maybe you could explain why it is not up to par or better----tell us what we should read that would match your scholarship standards.

What the Bible Really Says About Politics

Thanks for the reminders during this election season. I think some of these (points 1-2) warrant further discussion. Such as a discussion about how God set up commandments such that we can have mutually exclusive obligations under the first two points: serving government while serving God (e.g that bad guy in Germany circa 1940s vs doing God's will). And so I personally feel least bound to the 'respect governing authority no matter what' commandments-- Perhaps I don't have enough faith to trust that God really put (fill in with name of just about any cruel dictator) into power.

What Does the Bible Actually Say About Dating?

Though the Bible doesn’t talk directly about dating, it does speak volumes about relationships, godly interactions and principles that can be applied to how you date. 1 Corinthians 10:31 reminds us that no matter what it is we’re doing; it can be used as a means to glorify God. When it comes to dating, I think we could all benefit from relaxing a bit about searching for hard and fast rules, and learning to apply Godly wisdom to every single part of our lives.

What Happens When the Spirit Falls?

The more we let texts like 1 Corinthians 14 shape our thinking about the Holy Spirit’s gifts and manifestations, we can better identify how God is working among us to do exactly what we have prayed. We ought to work hard at communicating truth about God to one another, all the while recognizing that in all our effort it is not just we who are working with all of our spiritual gifts, but God working in and through us (1 Corinthians 15:10).

Husbands, It’s Time to Start Leading Family Worship

Husbands, fathers —if you have been negligent in this duty and great privilege, repent by starting family worship today. Again, you may feel awkward about what to say to your wife or your children about starting, but simply say that God has convicted you of your responsibility to lead in family worship and you want to start at a given time today or tonight. Almost certainly your wife will be thrilled more than you can imagine to hear you say that. Your children may or may not be as enthusiastic, but that does not really matter. The less interest they show, the more your family needs family worship. The Lord will help you. He does not call his Spirit-begotten sons to this task without giving them the power of the Holy Spirit to accomplish it. The same Father who gave you the gospel and who drew you to Christ will strengthen you by his Spirit to put on this badge of godly manhood.

What You Can Actually Do After a Breakup

The breakup line, it's God telling me to break up, is a cop out. God doesn't decide these things for us, it's our free choice and we can pray that he blesses our choices. We also don't date people who are abusive, or whichever non-negotiable vice, but God doesn't have a predetermined plan for us, he doesn't decide for us unless it affects His kingdom, like being called to be a missionary because your heart has moved so close to God's you share the same passion for the lost. Using God as a cop out excuse stops both parties from healing, it creates amenity between someone and God and it doesn't lead to Christian reconciliation. If you don't go through this season growing the same issue will occur till you learn to take ownership of your choices and learn to be a good romantic partner in a healthy relationship.

Can We “Agree To Disagree” On Sexuality and Marriage?

I’m a pastor (teaching elder) in the PC(USA) and since my church has been named in this thread I thought I’d clarify a few things. 1)Throwing my church under your bus for argument purposes is disgusting and un-Christian. How dare you! Do you know me? Have you been to my church? How can you make such a charge that we are following culture and not our Lord Jesus Christ when all of my fellow pastors read the Bible in their pulpits every Sunday as they proclaim God’s word? You owe all of us an apology for such incredible self righteousness and gossip. 2) No one speaks for anyone in my church. Therefore the statement that the PC(USA) says thus and so about abortion is a statement by one General Assembly which any Presbyterian can affirm or reject. Therefore you must ask each Presbyterian what they believe about a non-salvation issue. We are all agreed that we must believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Our church governance in one way is like that of Baptists in that our General Assembly is like a Fellowship or Convention recommending positions we can take on certain issues.

The Secrets of God in Our Suffering

The God who dried Job’s tears with a tornado answers us with a hundred riddles and with a litany of indecipherable mysteries and a catalogue of natural absurdities and animal wonders to fill our imaginations with awe and wonder that cannot answer our questions, but somehow work together to quiet and humble and satisfy our hearts. “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever” (Deuteronomy 29:29) — and the riddles he reveals are more than enough to inspire our trust in his sovereign goodness in governing all things, even when the specific why of our suffering remains a mystery.

https://www.crossway.org/books/word-filled-womens-ministry-tpb/

“Out of both biblical conviction and years of experience, these women think seriously about discipleship, evangelism, intergenerational mentoring, and compassion. Their strength is evident, their commitment to Scripture robust, their joy in the gospel intoxicating, their anticipation of the consummation providing a lodestar to their lives and service. Although this is a book by women to foster “Word-filled women’s ministry,” much of it will be read with equal profit by men. I hope that some of those men will be pastors who in consequence reflect on what they can do encourage such ministry in their own churches.” D. A.

His father is an evangelist in the Brethren church and runs the well-known Emmaus Bible School in Arab Galilee.

29 Christian Life and Truth: Risen: The Great Sign of the Resurrection of Jesus

Don’t feel sorry for Christ, who, it should be said, wouldn’t feel the least bit sorry for anyone who rejects the truth. Jesus said He would get all who are His, not one would perish. Jesus was history’s most compassionate man—it was part of what makes Him great, His willingness to reach out and love and heal every hurting person, sometimes even among His enemies. His most telling parable was that of the Good Samaritan. An enemy of the Jewish people was made the hero in Christ’s compelling tale about extending mercy to those who do not deserve it. By the end of the story, we will all have deep inspiration to reach out to all men with compassion, friends or enemies.

30 How the Non-Existence of Vampires Reveals the Existence of God

This last principle is particularly intriguing and makes me wonder if it can be applied to the anthropic principle. As Wikipedia explains, “In physics and cosmology, the anthropic principle states that humans should take into account the constraints that human existence imposes on the kind of theoretical universe that can support human life.” The anthropic principle is often stated in a positive way, assuming that certain conditions must be met before human life can exist. At least two dozen demandingly exact physical constants must be in place for carbon-based life to exist on earth, the slightest variation in any of these conditions—even to a minuscule degree—would have rendered the universe unfit for the existence of any kind of life, much less for humans.

The Top Five Reasons Faith is Not What You Think It Is

If we are honest, all of us can identify with this man. “I believe; help my unbelief” is a perfect summary of the internal struggle that every Christian experiences. It’s like reaching for Jesus to pull you out of the water when you have a weight tied to your ankle. In that moment you are focused on the weights keeping you under, but your heart is yearning to look up! So look to Jesus! The point of this passage is this: even if you are only 51% sure that Jesus will do what he says, He can work with that.  Here’s the thing, the only things that you know with 100% certainty is that you exist, because you are a thinking thing, and logical and mathematical laws like “1+1=2.” Other than that we need to be ok living in the tension of doubt and unanswered questions. Jesus never promises to answer all of our questions. Most of the time he says something like, “Trust me and let me work.” Do not be afraid of doubt or unanswered questions, because God meets you there. Our beliefs need to have reasons behind them, and they must best correspond to reality. But if your expectation is that Christianity will bring you to a place of 100% certainty, the flesh will do a lot of damage to you when you never get there.

Can You Be Too Young to Lead in Church?

I completely understand. I'm 29 and am an elder at my church and have been teaching adult Sunday School classes for a few years now. I felt exactly like you do when I was asked to teach adults. I second everything that Bronwyn wrote. I would add that when you teach adults you must remember that you might have the right answers but they will often have the experiential wisdom, so allow them to give lots of input. Week after week I learn more than I teach. Also, prepare, prepare, prepare. Paul said not many of you should be teachers. Don't let that necessarily stop you from teaching but it should give you a seriousness about what you are doing. Teaching the Word of God is no small matter, so treat it as a big deal.

How Do We 'Respect' Authority We Disagree With?

One of the chief ways we honor God is in the way we respond to those He has put in authority over us. Whether we agree or disagree with our authorities, showing honor and respect is presented in the Bible as a non-negotiable. In showing honor and respect, we also honor and respect God, who, in His own wisdom and for His own purposes, ordains who will lead and who will follow.

Christian Life and Truth: The Sure Existence of God: The Potent Evidence, Arguments and Proof

Rational pre-commitments assist in directing one’s investigation and analysis of the data (as well as its interpretation and communication). This admission is often difficult to get from some atheistic inquirers to acknowledge. What worldview can furnish the a priori necessities and rational tools for science, analysis and research? Christian theism can deliver the epistemic ground for the a priori immutable universals utilized in rational enquiry; in principle, materialistic atheism cannot furnish the aforementioned ground. What is obligatory to account for scientific analysis is a first principle that has the ontological endowment to not only ground it, but to account for it and its preconditions—all the universal operational features of knowledge. The loss of the immovable point of reference, in principle, leaves the ungodly bereft of a resource necessary to construct the analytical enterprise. Without God, one cannot hoist the necessary a priori operation features of the intellectual examination of evidence. The Christian worldview supplies the fixed ontic platform as the sufficient truth condition that can justify induction, immutable universals, attributes, identity, and the uniformity of the physical world.

According to a new report from Bloomberg Business , in the last five years, 21 new abortion providers have opened, but across the country, at least 162 have been closed down. The primary reason is due to conservative lawmakers passing new legislation that makes it more and more difficult for providers to operate. In Texas alone, at least 30 clinics have closed down.

Love Is the Main Thing in Saving Faith

If you are a parent or a pastor or a small group leader, or a Christian who cares about helping anyone trust Christ and live by faith, what all this means is that your desire to help the people you serve will include a desire to help them love Christ. This does not mean do things for him. It feels things for him. It means treasure him above all else. Be satisfied in all that God is for us in him.

Challenging Eyewitnesses of the Resurrection

The challenge makes a very important mistake in his reasoning here. He claims that car crashes are common and implies that eyewitness to those are reliable. However, he fails to recognize that the inclusion of details of the event (a car crash) makes the event less probable. Let us say that a person claimed to witnessed a car crash between a red 1994 Ford F-150 and a silver 2009 Nissan Altima. The inclusion of the details makes the event quite rare, not common. Once the person includes the location, date and time (never mind the drivers, passengers, weather conditions, or any other details), the event becomes as improbable as any other unique event, including the resurrection.

Alejandro González Iñárritu Talks to CT About ‘The Revenant’

Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu: I think that honestly God is around every moment, in nature and in those beautiful landscapes. We shot at the end of the day every day, at dusk time, which I always say is the time when God speaks. And we have to listen. Every object speaks . . . every plant and every shine in the snow, every tree are like soldiers of this planet. Everything is totally revealed in another level, another dimension. These men were absolutely surrounded by it, but they couldn’t see it. There was a lot of ignorance, a lot of illiterate, young, poor guys who were basically surviving a lot of threats. And between them there was never an understanding but there was a lot of prejudice… And they got kind of lost. Very sadly, that’s kind of the planted seeds of the world we are living now. We are blinded. But I think the beauty of existence is all around all of them, all the time.
