Christians have been delighted to see more and more Hollywood production companies deviate from the norm and produce wholesome, faith-based films, and 20th Century Fox’s latest, Breakthrough, is rousing audience interest ahead of its release.

“Breakthrough is based on the inspirational true story of one mother’s unfaltering love in the face of impossible odds,” reads the description of the trailer on YouTube.

Led by an all-star cast, Breakthrough is the true story of John Smith, a Missouri boy who fell into the freezing waters of Lake St. Louis in 2015.

The film is based on a memoir written by John’s mother, Joyce Smith, The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection.

After John’s life-threatening submersion in the lake, he was retrieved but showed no signs of life for an entire hour. Refusing to accept his death, Joyce called out to God in fervent prayer, interceding for her son. The result was nothing short of miraculous, and her story has gone on to inspire millions.

“I’ve had messages from people in Philippines, Germany, Sweden saying thank God you’re alive and we cannot wait to see this film,” John revealed in an interview with KSDK.

Breakthrough stars Topher Grace, Chrissy Metz, Josh Lucas, and Marcel Ruiz, and is one of the first faith-based projects executive-produced by NBA All-Star Steph Curry. CBN News explains it is also directed by veteran television director Roxann Dawson.

The film’s producer is Devon Franklin, the man behind the 2016’s faith-based hit “Miracles from Heaven.” According to Deadline Hollywood, Franklin, a studio executive-turned-preacher, helped the Smiths find a literary agent and develop the book into a film.

Breakthrough is set to premiere in theaters nationwide April 12, 2019. Watch the trailer for this beautiful story in the video below (you might want to grab some tissues!)

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.

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…
