WATCH: Pop Star Selena Gomez Points Fans to Christian Music Sensation Lauren Daigle With Inspiring Message About Faith

Published

on

It is pretty incredible to see, in the midst of a culture that increasingly rejects and mocks God, the undeniable Billboard success Christian artists are enjoying right now.

While the most powerful voices in the entertainment industry seem to be all to often far-left and mega-progressives, it’s interesting to note that when it comes to what consumers actually want, faith-based, conservative entertainment often reigns supreme, something much of the industry seems dead-set on ignoring.

The popular success of Christian artists is certainly something worth celebrating, as, astoundingly, praise music is starting to be heard regularly on even secular music stations.

The prime example is, of course, leading Christian music artist Lauren Daigle, whose recently released album “Look Up Child” has far outsold many far more popular secular artists like Drake and Ariana Grande.

And it’s all about the artist’s immense love of Christ and her awe at His Grace.

Another musical artist, Selena Gomez, who has been quite public in recent years about her mental health struggles and the solace she has found in Jesus, recently referred to a Daigle track when fans asked her how she dealt with anxiety.

Liftable has the story:

The singer has been open about her faith in Jesus and shared about it in another Instagram live video. In this video, she also pointed her followers to listen to Lauren Daigle, currently the number one Christian artist in the United States.

Gomez shared that many followers had asked her about anxiety and depression. Her response was Daigle’s song, “This Girl.”

The lyrics speak of trying to run from God and realizing he was there all along. “My heart is yours,” the song says.

“I like to listen to worship music…” Gomez explained in the video. “Here’s the song I feel like I get to sing to Jesus.”

Daigle also recently attracted both the praise–and ire–of the Christian community after appearing on well-known lesbian Ellen Degeneres’ show.

Her response to critics perfectly captured how valuable her musical career is in reaching the lost:

“I think the second we start drawing lines around which people are able to be approached and which aren’t,” she explained, “we’ve already completely missed the heart of God.”

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.
