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!

Catholic Priest Says A Prayer For ‘Unborn Child In The Womb’ During The DNC

Published

on

A Catholic priest who was called upon to deliver a prayer during the Democratic National Convention no doubt made quite a few folks very, very angry by praying for and making a plea on behalf of unborn children at the end of the event. Rev. James Martin, a Jesuit who has caused quite a stir in the Catholic Church for his writings about gay and transgender issues, prayed that folks who were watching the event would open their hearts to “those most in need,” which included “the unborn child in the womb.” Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “Help to be a nation where every life is sacred, all people are loved, and all are welcome,” he said. Martin confirmed to the Washington Examiner earlier in the week that his prayer would contain explicit references to the unborn. Although a hot-button issue for much of the Democratic primary, abortion did not play a major role in the Democratic convention. Aside from Martin’s prayer, the issue received only minimal attention, with some speakers mentioning it in their speeches. Republicans, by contrast, are gearing up to make a major issue of abortion at the Republican National Convention next week. In addition to several anti-abortion speakers, the Republican National Committee invited Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, to deliver the convention’s opening prayer. Dolan has previously done so at both the Republican and Democratic conventions, during which he prayed for the protection of the unborn. At the end of the day, abortion is one of the most critical issues to face our culture in modern history. The reason, of course, is because fundamentally, at the core of the issue, is the defense of the most basic right we all have. The God-given right to exist, to live. If we cannot…

President Trump Says He’d ‘Go In And Do A Number On Middle East Countries Persecuting Christians’

Published

on

President Trump recently said that he would “do a number” on countries located in the Middle East that are persecuting Christians if he could find solid proof and evidence that sort of thing was happening. Christians in that part of the world are heavily persecuted, mostly by radical Muslim government regimes and terrorist groups, for daring to stand up boldly for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If you look at the way Christians have been treated in some countries, it’s beyond disgraceful,” Trump said Thursday during a news conference at the White House. “If I had information and if I had absolute proof — some of the stories that we’ve heard, which are not easy, which is not easy to get — I would go in and do a number to those countries like you wouldn’t believe. He added, “What they do to Christians in the Middle East — it’s disgraceful.” Trump made the comment while discussing the nascent “Abraham Accord” treaty to normalize relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is not only going to be a big help to Christians in that area of the world, but it will also help Israel as well. For many, many years, the Jewish Nation has been surrounded by countries who do not recognize it’s legitimate right to exist. Striking this deal is a first step in changing that way of thinking in that part of the world. It’s something a lot of folks probably never dreamed possible before. Christians are told in the Bible to expect persecutions and to rejoice in suffering for the cause of Christ. However, that doesn’t mean we should allow persecution to continue on as if it’s a good thing. It’s not. If we have an opportunity…
