Justin Bieber heads to recording studio with Pastor Carl Lentz: What are they cooking up?

However, seeing the two of them at a recording studio in Beverly Hills might be some cause for excitement, as it could mean they are creating new music for Hillsong Church. They first appeared in the recording studio on Wednesday, according to the Daily Mail. Bieber and his favorite preacher later headed to West Hollywood for a bite to eat. The following day, they were spotted again at the same place. Back when Bieber was constantly being criticized for his unruly behavior and party boy ways, it was Lentz from Hillsong Church who took him under his wing and came to his defense.

Christians should avoid these mistakes during troubled times

Christians should avoid these mistakes during troubled times

(Photo: Pixabay) There is no such thing as a perfect Christian, and people who follow Christ are bound to commit one mistake after another. However, when difficulties arise, believers tend to commit more mistakes than usual. Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church wrote in his devotional that there are three common mistakes made by Christians whenever they are faced with challenges. The first of these is listening to bad advice. When God tells His children to do something, but world experts tell them to do something else, sometimes they opt to listen to the latter. But Warren said “don’t listen to the experts. Listen to what God says.” Next, Warren said believers make the mistake of following the crowd. “The majority is often wrong!” he warned. “Peer pressure keeps a lot of people from doing what God wants them to do.” And lastly,...Read more
Why do temptations grow stronger after a person accepts Jesus Christ?

Why do temptations grow stronger after a person accepts Jesus Christ?

(Pixabay) Being a Christian does not mean people will be exempted from sin and temptation. If anything, the Devil’s lure to do wrong things will heighten even more once a person accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior. A new Christian wrote to world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham and asked why his temptations are “stronger” now that he has Jesus in his life. He asked if there was anything wrong with him as his spiritual faith is being tested more than ever. In response, Graham assured the man that nothing is wrong with him. “Just because you have given your life to Jesus doesn’t mean you’ll never be tempted to do wrong — because you will,” he said. “In fact, we may face even stronger temptations once we give our lives to Christ — because Satan will do everything he can to discourage us and cause us to doubt our...Read more

But a vote by a handful of leading figures at the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists called for abortion to be regulated in line with other procedures but not carry a criminal sanction. This October marks the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act 1967 that first permitted abortions in the UKReuters RCOG president Professor Lesley Regan said: ‘I want to be clear that decriminalisation does not mean deregulation, and abortion services should be subject to regulatory and professional standards, in line with other medical procedures.’ It comes after the main doctors’ union the British Medical Association backed the decriminalisation of abortion in June. But the...Read more

Theresa May needs to give more detail, EU demands

Prime Minister Theresa May set out a plan on Friday to retain full access to the EU’s single market for two years after Brexit to try to reassure business and reset the tone of stalled negotiations with Brussels.

Prime Minister Theresa May was praised for the tone of her speech but EU leaders demanded more detail.Reuters EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier praised the speech for its ‘constructive spirit’ but asked for more detail.
