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.”

LA County Now Lifting Ban On Indoor Worship Services ‘To Align With Recent SCOTUS Rulings’

Published

Los Angeles County has decided to finally follow the Constitution and honor the First Amendment right of freedom of religion — a right handed down by God Himself — and lift a ban on indoor church worship services over the weekend after recent Supreme Court rulings in favor of houses of worship. Gee, how nice of them to allow folks to do what God commands them to do and hold services inside a building like normal people. This should never have been something that needed a Supreme Court ruling. The Constitution is pretty clear that the right to freely expression religion is protected. via Daily Wire: “The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified today to align with recent Supreme Court rulings for places of worship,” the county said in a press release Saturday. “Places of worship are permitted to offer faith-based services both indoors and outdoors with mandatory physical distancing and face coverings over both the nose and mouth that must be worn at all times while on site. Places of worship must also assure that attendance does not exceed the number of people who can be accommodated while maintaining a physical distance of six feet between separate households.” “Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to hold services outdoors, with physical distancing and the use of face coverings to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community,” the release continued. “Because Los Angeles County is experiencing an unprecedented surge of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, every effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to congregants and to the entire community is critical. This is an absolute win for religious liberty, one of the most important and fundamental rights our republic was established upon. In fact, it was our forefathers seeking after religious…

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…
