A MUST READ: PERETTI’S “PIERCING THE DARKNESS”

I finished reading this book for the second time last night, it was like I was reading it for the first time. I still got goose bumps and I still rattled in tongues spontaneously through the chapters. Every once in a while someone creates something extraordinary and the dictionary word for it I believe is ‘epic’. Frank Peretti’s Piercing The Darkness is Epic! It’s a Christian novel but I’m sure anyone who reads it will be touched, there’ll be an impact in the readers’ spirit, because God himself influenced Peretti…

STRANGE FIRE: THE DANGER OF OFFENDING THE HOLY SPIRIT WITH COUNTERFEIT

Review by Steve Cha What would God say about those who blatantly misrepresent His Holy Spirit? Who exchange true worship for chaotic fits of mindless ecstasy? Who replace the biblical gospel with vain illusions of health and wealth? Who claim to prophesy in His name yet speak errors; and who sell false hope to desperate people for millions of dollars? This is the opening book description of John MacArthur’s new book Strange Fire, which is a topic similar to the one he wrote a couple of decades earlier in a…

“RISEN”: THE JESUS FILM HOLLYWOOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE

Christians, get ready! There’s a new movie coming out about the resurrection of Jesus called Risen. And it’s going to be EPIC! But it looks like it may be up to us Christians to help spread the word. According to a report from Jesus Daily, Hollywood has been trying to sweep this movie under the rug. They even claim that one film studio was looking to purchase the rights to the movie solely for the purpose of making sure it was never released. But this movie is too good not…

NEW “LITTLE BOY” MOVIE

Little Boy is essentially a movie-length parable expounding on Jesus’ promise that “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” As young Pepper (I guess they couldn’t actually name him Mustard Seed) takes that verse to heart, Father Oliver poignantly explains that prayer isn’t magic, its power doesn’t come from us and that, in the end, it is God who is moved by humble prayer to move…

“COURAGEOUS,” The Fathers’ Must Watch Movie

‘’A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father’’ Frank Abagnale. This piece would have been most appropriate for Father’s Day because it has more to do with fathers. My review is on the movie “COURAGEOUS” written by the Kendrick brothers and directed by Alex Kendrick, the older of the brothers. Truth be told, this movie would rate as the best production from Sherwood…
