Christian Artist Lauren Daigle Responds to Critics for “Ellen” Appearance, and It’s Perfect

Published

Christian artist Lauren Daigle has been taking the music industry by storm with her new album, “Look Up Child.”

And no, I don’t mean the Christian music industry.

I mean the music industry as a whole.

The album has so far out-performed far more popular secular artists like Drake and Ariana Grande, and if you listen to just a few moments of Daigle’s powerful voice and heartfelt praise, you’ll certainly understand why.

The talented artist recently caught the attention of an unlikely talk show…The Ellen Show.

You might be wondering how a Christian artist came to appear on a talk show hosted by one of the most famous outspoken homosexuals in the US, but again, Daigle’s talent speaks for itself.

We’re not sure why Ellen’s producers thought it would be a good idea, but if you’re a Christian who takes the Great Commission seriously, you can certainly appreciate why Daigle agreed.

And this is exactly why she defended her appearance on the show after receiving a mixed response from the faith community.

FaithWire reports:

Daigle responded to her detractors during an interview with WAY-FM, explaining, “I think the second we start drawing lines around which people are able to be approached and which aren’t, we’ve already completely missed the heart of God.”

“I don’t have all the answers in life,” she continued, “but one thing I know is that I can’t choose who I’m supposed to be kind to and who I’m not, because that’s the mission, right? Be who Christ was to everyone as well.”

he popular Christian singer also revealed it was Degeneres who personally chose “Still Rolling Stones,” the song Daigle sang during her appearance on the nationally syndicated show.

“I don’t know why,” Daigle said, “but I know that she’s really purposeful in choosing a message as well, so maybe that was the one that spoke to her the most.”

Can you imagine Paul refusing to speak on Mars Hill? Jesus sending the woman at the well away because she was a Samaritan?

While it’s unlikely Ellen has given her life to Christ since Daigle’s performance, you never know what kind of seeds her presence there planted.

You don’t have to condone someone’s lifestyle to share the Gospel with them, in fact, if you don’t, it makes it all the more important to minister to them.

Well done, Lauren!

Christian Satire Site Strikes Back Against Snopes ‘Smear.’ Here’s How Snopes’ Responded.

Snopes just got put in their place. Good on you, Babylon Bee!

Published

on

Hilariously funny Christian satire site, the Babylon Bee, decided they had enough shenanigans from Snopes, the self-described “fact checking” site and the ongoing smear they launched against them, so they lawyered up, and boy, it didn’t take long for Snopes to change their tune. This just goes to show that we as conservatives and Christians shouldn’t be taking the attacks left-wing media launch at us lying down. The more we fight back, the more they surrender. via Daily Wire: “Last week, Snopes fact-checked us again,” the Bee told its readers Monday (h/t Ed Morrissey). “We’re pretty used to that. But this time, instead of merely rating the article ‘false,’ they questioned whether our work qualifies as satire, and even went so far as to suggest that we were deliberately deceiving our readers. Basically, they treated us as a source of intentionally misleading fake news, rather than as the legitimate, well-known satire publication that we are. This is a big deal.” The reason it’s a “big deal,” the site goes on to explain, is that Snopes has been given significant power over how platforms — particularly Facebook, for which Snopes has served as one of its “fake news” monitors — handle posts: As you know, fake news—which is distinguished from satire by its intent to mislead—was widely considered a serious issue in the last election cycle. As a result, social media networks like Facebook began partnering with fact-checkers to try and limit the distribution of fake news on their platforms. Snopes was one of them. At one point, a piece of ours was rated “false” by Snopes, prompting Facebook to threaten us with limitations and demonetization. We made a stink about this, and after some media attention shed light on the problem, Facebook apologized for their handling of the matter and…

Argentine Photographer Captures INCREDIBLE Image of Christ-Like Cloud

It cannot be denied that our world is in the midst of turmoil unlike anything we’ve seen in the past. From Birmingham to Beijing, we are seeing unprecedented poverty, crime, hate, violence, war, famine….you name it.  Combine these issues with a mainstream media who is salivating at the chance to rile us up for ratings and money, and the world becomes a downright scary place. Where do we turn when the world seems to shun us?  For some, the answers lie in the bottom of a bottle.  For others, it’s self-harm or outward violence. For many, however, their faith is their rock.  They turn to the religious world for answers to the questions that plague us today, and, often, they discover signs of encouragement. Such is the case today in Argentina. Monica Aramayo was in San Salvador de Jujuy in Argentina when she noticed the holy figure shining through the thick clouds Social media user Mariela Romano said: “The Lord will soon come for us all and we should be ready. While another said: “Thanks for the image that allows us to keep on our path and have a better hope for tomorrow.” The photo has to be seen to be believed. https://twitter.com/faithdefender/status/1128809009153097728 The pose and grand scale of the image has reminded many observers of the famous Christ The Redeemer statue in Brazil. https://twitter.com/OtravelAI/status/1082513665700507648 And while the cloud formation certainly isn’t going to change the minds of the unfaithful, it does provide us all with a reminder that we are loved, and we must remain harmonious with one another on this turbulent little space rock.
