Christian, Christianity, God, James Caviezel, Jesus, Jesus Christ, Mel Gibson, Passion of the Christ
This is a great interview with Jim Caviezel who played the role of Jesus Christ in Mel Gibson’s ‘Passion of the Christ’.
Some great insights are here, both into an actor’s methods as well as a devoted Christian and artist showing his own passion for his lord and his work. I have even more respect for him after watching this interview. Jim is someone who tries to better himself by following the teachings of Jesus Christ, loving God, and all people.

What if your domain was Iran and you were a Christian? Even worse what if your domain was an Iranian prison and in that domain were only your handlers and torturers?
Dan continues to amaze me. I love his story of attempted suicide (which God did not allow and for a very specific purpose).
Dan needed Jesus and Jesus came to him just at the right moment. More

John and Wanda Casias, originally from Amarillo, Texas, moved to an area outside of Monterrey, Mexico, in the late 1970s or early 1980s to make it their home.

It takes great faith to endure what Sofia endured recently–a public flogging in the streets of a Somali city. Will

each of you, who know Jesus, pray for her fast recovery!!!
I like what the source said about prayer for her:
Ask the Lord to protect her from further harm. Pray that she will rest in the knowledge that the Good Shepherd walks with her through this difficult time (Psalm 23). Pray her faithful testimony will be used as a witness for the gospel. Pray for all Christians in Somalia.

Since 2009, Asia Bibi’s husband and children have been forced to live without her. And because of Pakistan’s blasphemy
laws, she may soon be killed for her faith. More

Despite Iran’s brutal government crackdown on Christianity, more Iranians are now embracing the faith than perhaps at any other time in history.

Meet a woman who has witnessed unspeakable evil and lived to tell about it.
For 28 years, Kim Hye Sook languished as a prisoner inside North Korea‘s oldest concentration camp. She saw daily executions, mass starvation, and mothers killing their children to survive.
Kim granted CBN News the first American television news interview. We must warn you that the images and content of this report are not suitable for children.

The Houston Chronicle site questions why a church in Seattle buys a piece of property in Portland. Why would the Houston community care what a church in Portland does? The only reason I can believe the story was carried is because there is an agenda behind the reporting. That agenda is to call into question a church’s rights. See quote below. Just because a precinct voted for one democratic candidate does not mean that none of them follow Jesus. Come on Houston Chronicle, Jesus is apolitical. The innuendo in the national media against the church and Christianity is appalling.
The Mars Hill Church bought the vacant, 106-year-old stone church last week and announced a gathering for Sept. 10. Some residents wonder what the church is doing in a precinct that went for Democratic Gov. John Kitzhaber last fall by more than 90 percent,the Oregonian reported (http://bit.ly/nfHj2X ).
