2023: The Year Jesus Went to the Movies

2023 was a breakthrough year for a lot of valuable, faith-based content to not only arrive at the theaters, but to completely captivate audiences with record-breaking charts. While many in the secular media may have been completely confused about what was happening, it’s apparent that God decided to pour out His Spirit in a new way.

The Chosen Season 3 Finale

The Chosen has been absolutely nothing short of a smashing success each time it has come to the box office.

Iowa Statehouse’s Satanic Display Sparks Controversy and Concern

In a recent development at the Iowa Statehouse, a holiday display set up by the Satanic Temple has stirred controversy among many communities. The display, featuring a ram’s head covered with mirrors on a mannequin cloaked in red clothing, has been defended by the group’s co-founder, Lucien Greaves, as a symbol of their right to religious freedom.

Greaves argued that the display is necessary as “We don’t have a church on every street corner,” emphasizing their desire to be represented in a public forum. He also suggested that those who do not like the display should simply ignore it.

However, many Christians like Shellie Flockhart from Dallas Center have expressed shock and concern, calling the display “a very dark, evil force.” In response, a prayer group was organized on Wednesday, Dec. 6 around the Christmas tree in the center of the rotunda to spiritually oppose the display.
