WATCH: Chris Pratt Stuns With Powerful Gospel Message at Disneyland Candlelight Ceremony

Published

on

You know the power of the Gospel is entirely unstoppable when even incredibly secular Disney finds itself glorifying God come Christmastime.

This year, unapologetically Christian actor Chris Pratt read straight from the Gospel of Luke and touched on the inspiring message of the Nativity at Disneyland’s history Candlelight Ceremony and Processional that truly celebrated the Reason for the Season.
This beautiful ceremony offers a tiny, but bright, ray of hope for Christians praying for a return to biblical principles.
The 2018 Candlelight Ceremony began with a skillfully orchestrated and performed an instrumental medley of Christmas hymns such as “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.”

When they belted out “He is the King of kings!” the friendly, smiling actor took the stage and began retelling the story from Luke of God sending the angel Gabriel to announce to Mary her incredible privilege of becoming the mother of the Savior.

“The Bible says, ‘when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and considered what manner of greeting this was,” Pratt said to his massive audience.

“That seems kind of confusing to me, so I’ll just paraphrase: she was kind of scared because an angel just fell from the ceiling,” he added, in his signature style of sharing the gospel folded into humor.

Pratt continued through the story with deep reverence and a couple of respectful chuckles as he stumbled over the word “conceive,” before the choir and orchestra proceeded to perform “The First Noel.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, it was really my honor to share this beautiful Candlelight Ceremony with all of you,” Pratt said at the conclusion of the ceremony. “It’s been a very special and inspiring night.”

“For me, being a parent has really changed my life in so many ways. And one of those ways is to understand, truly, the love that a father could have for a child,” he added. “The way we love our children, the more we love our children, the more we will understand the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us.”

“Each and every one of us a precious creation, and he just marvels in the ways that we can try to please Him. That should give us a great deal of comfort. I know it does for me.”
Amen!

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…

This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision

When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.

Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long. Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru. Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages. “At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said. Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1910950709034153 “The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.” Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking. “There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.” His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick…
