Lauren Daigle’s recently-released album, “Look Up Child”, has taken both the Christian and secular music industries by storm.

She has been praised for crossing over into the mainstream and maintaining her bold faith while doing so.

Her crossover appeal was showcased incredibly well by “The Voice” finalist Reagan Strange this week on their Top 13 performances episode, and her rendition is sure to give you goosebumps.

Team Adam couldn’t have picked a better song to showcase Strange’s beautiful voice.

Relevant Magazine noted that videos featuring worship songs such as this one always seem to perform better than other performances on YouTube: “Should voice competitions lean harder into the Christian market to procure votes from audiences? Honestly, we wouldn’t be upset,” they note.

Daigle’s interaction with the mainstream have attracted criticism as well as admiration, particularly after performing her song “Still Rolling Stones” on the talk show of Ellen DeGeneres, an open lesbian.

Responding to her critics, however, gave her an amazing opportunity to defend the way her music can reach others.

“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,” Daigle said in response.

“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.”

DeGeneres picked the song Daigle performed, she added: “I don’t know why 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.”

Dangle more recently stunned The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and his audience, which may be responsible, at least in part, for the spread of her music to venues like The Voice.

LGBTQ Activists Blitz Drew Brees Over Support Of ‘Bring Your Bible To School’ Program. His Response Is Perfect.

Classy response.

Published

on

LGBTQ activists, or more affectionately, the “alphabet people,” are once again up in a tizzy over a Christian doing what Christians do, supporting things Christians should support. This time the target of their rainbow tinted rage is New Orleans Saints superstar quarterback Drew Brees. Brees is a big supporter of a program that encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school. Brees has openly been a Christian for a long time, so his support of such a program is not at all a shock, but the perpetually offended folks in the homosexual community are nonetheless attacking him over it. Well, Brees has responded and it’s awesome. Here’s a video of Brees talking about his support of the program in question: https://youtu.be/qPFEyeug99g via TheBlaze: Deadspin ran the headline “Drew Brees appears in video for gay conversion therapy sickos, doesn’t understand what the big deal is,” for the story. Others on Twitter accused Brees of being a “bigot” and aligned with a “hateful group.” Brees responded to the online furor through a video on his Instagram trying to clear the air and saying that he was falsely smeared by a deceptive article on the story. https://twitter.com/Amie_Just/status/1169705243216666626 “What I did was I filmed a video recently that was encouraging kids to bring their Bibles to school for national Bring your Bible to School Day,” said Brees. “So I’m not sure why the negativity spread, or why people tried to rope me into certain negativity,” he added. “I do not support any groups that discriminate, or that have their own agendas that are trying to promote inequality. OK? So hopefully that has set the record straight, and we can all move on, because that is not what I stand for.” Unfortunately, you can almost guarantee that such a statement is not at all going…

Pete Buttigieg Adds New Sin To God’s List; It’s A Real Eye Roller

This guy clearly never read the last few verses in the Bible.

Okay, so you know how the Bible, in the book of Revelation warns folks about adding to or taking away from the Bible, the Holy Written Word of God? Apparently, Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg has never read that portion of Scripture. During a town hall about climate change hosted on CNN, Buttigieg mentioned that skeptics of the science on this issue were committing a grave sin. Yes, that’s right, folks. Apparently the Eleventh Commandment is “Thou Shalt Not Deny Climate Change.” Guess we missed that one on our first read through. via TheBlaze: “Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith,” said Buttigieg, an openly gay presidential candidate. “You know, if you believe that God is watching as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it ⁠— countries are at risk of vanishing in low-lying areas ⁠— what do you suppose God thinks of that?” he asked rhetorically. “I bet He thinks it’s messed up,” Buttigieg answered. “And you don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimensions of this, because frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tell us that we have some responsibility of stewardship, some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us,” he continued. https://youtu.be/gq7rwFPC3vU Buttigieg also brought up how not caring about climate change is also an issue of not loving your neighbor. “Not to mention taking care of our neighbor. Eventually it gets to the point where this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing, and more and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now,” Buttigieg said. You know what else God hates, Mr. Buttigieg? People who twist up the meaning of His Word and add their own manmade…
