Virginia couple adopts after viral pro-life post telling expectant mothers not to get abortion

A Virginia couple who went viral earlier this year with their pro-life plea to pregnant women has had their dreams answered.

Blake and Sarah Thomas, of Radford, posted a photo on Facebook about nine months ago pleading expectant mothers to not have an abortion.

“Please don’t abort. We will adopt your baby!” a sign in the photo said.

They had posted the image in response to the passing of a New York bill on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade that legalizes abortion up to birth in many cases.

“We believe as Christians that we are called to love and care for orphans,” Sarah Thomas told Fox News recently.

Soon after the post went viral, the Thomas’ agreed to adopt a child, but that fell through. To their surprise and joy, the mother decided to keep and parent the baby.

However, their wishes of taking a child in were answered, and they told Fox News they are in the process of adopting an 11-year-old boy from Bulgaria.

“We recently felt God burdening our hearts for older orphans, specifically boys who statistically are the least likely to be adopted,” Sarah Tomas said. “We’re so excited to meet him and we’re amazed by how God has already filled our hearts with love for this boy on the other side of the world that we’ve never met.”

This child won’t be the first entering their family through adoption.

“God has given us a heart for the fatherless and 3 years into our marriage we were convicted of our selfishness in waiting for children and obeyed God’s calling to become foster parents,” Sarah Thomas said.

The Thomas family – who have a 1-year-old biological son – have also adopted Kayden, 3, through the foster care. They described him as a “blessing and such a joy.”

The Virginia couple said dozens of mothers reach out to them, saying they decided to keep their babies after their post on Facebook was shared over 17,000 times.

Kanye West gave a meaningful gift to his wife, Kim Kardashian, for her birthday and she responded: “This makes my heart so happy!”

The “Jesus Walks” rapper donated $1 million to prison reform, which Kardashian tweeted about Tuesday.

KIM KARDASHIAN, KIDS BAPTIZED AT ARMENIAN CHURCH AS KANYE WEST CONFIRMS HE ‘GOT SAVED’ THIS YEAR

“I got amazing gifts from my whole family and Kanye for me the most amazing bags,” she wrote on Twitter. “But he also donated $1 million to my favorites charities that work so hard on prison reform on my behalf from him and the kids.”

A donation certificate showed the donation was made to Cut 50, Buried Alive Project, Equal Justice Initiative, and Anti-Recidivism Coalition from her husband and the couple’s four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

The 39-year-old “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star, who is studying to be a lawyer, has met with President Trump multiple times to help get the First Step Act signed into law and advocate on behalf of former inmates Alice Marie Johnson and Matthew Charles, both of whom were released after serving lengthy prison sentences.

KANYE WEST DROPS ‘JESUS IS KING’ TRAILER: ‘WE’RE HERE TO SAVE YOU FROM ETERNAL DAMNATION’

Kardashian was recently baptized in Armenia alongside her kids as her husband revealed that he “got saved” this year and has been holding weekly Bible studies.

Meanwhile, West has a new IMAX film dropping Friday, “Jesus Is King,” following multiple Sunday Service pop-ups around the country.

The film will focus on West’s Sunday Service and feature 13 songs from his choir, as well as music from his upcoming (and oft-delayed) album “Jesus Is King.”

Selena Gomez shares faith-filled note after new song drops: ‘Laying down and thanking Jesus’

Selena Gomez posted a faith-filled note on Twitter minutes after dropping her newest single, which many fans say is about her ex-boyfriend, Justin Bieber.

Void of any Bieber references, the “Lose You to Love Me” singer testified that trusting God has helped her get through the lowest moments of her life.

“I’m literally just laying down and thanking Jesus,” Gomez wrote Tuesday night, adding “Where my father [God] has taken me and placing me is exactly where I am meant to be.”

Pop star Selena Gomez shared about her faith in a tweet.

The former Disney star, who has spoken publicly about her Christian faith before, even wrote what God tells her.

“He said to me, ‘Selena hold on, I hurt when you hurt. I cry when you cry but I will NEVER, EVER leave your side. Work with me, walk with me and watch how I do it.'”

She added, “He always surprises me and I re-fall in love with Him every single time. In my worst moments, like awful, most painful moments – I never stopped falling to my knees wanting and needing only His love.”

The 27-year-old pop star has previously spoken about her diagnosis with lupus and the emotional road she traveled to take control of her mental health.

“See the enemy keeps trying to tear me down and it’s just not gonna happen,” Gomez concluded. “Not today. Not the next.”

Christian comedian coming to Netflix: ‘I Ain’t Prayin’ for that’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6032186626001_6032185537001-vs Christian comedian coming to Netflix: 'I Ain't Prayin' for that' fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/organization/netflix fox-news/faith-values/faith fox news fnc/entertainment fnc e54340ee-c530-5f24-a9d3-187efd425812 Caleb Parke article

John Crist might’ve been fired from Chick-fil-A but the comedian just got picked up by Netflix.

The Christian comedian made the announcement on social media Tuesday that his comedy special will be coming out on the popular streaming platform Thanksgiving day, offering three alternatives to “Netflix and chill” to his fans.

CHRISTIAN COMEDIAN JOHN CRIST GOT FIRED FROM CHICK-FIL-A FOR DOING THIS

Crist offered “Netflix and kill your nieces and nephews” who won’t want to watch the special, “Netflix and treadmill” to “work off a couple pounds,” or “Netflix and get grilled by your family for all your questionable career and relationship and financial choices throughout the year,” which he says will probably be what he will be doing Nov. 28.

The home-schooled son of a pastor-turned-mayor is one of eight children and he likes to say he sells out venues without selling out his values. He wants to change people’s thoughts using comedy, he says.

“I think that’s what comedy is, in a lot of ways; is you look around at society and the way things go, and you just don’t like it,” Crist told “Fox & Friends’ Ainsley Earhardt. “You’re just like, ‘I don’t like how this sits,’ and you try to come up with things and a lot of times people are like…’That is so true!'”

‘VEGGIETALES’ CREATOR PHIL VISCHER SAYS SHOW’S COMEBACK HAS ‘CLASSIC’ FEEL WITH NEW BIBLE STORIES

For the 35-year-old comedian, who has shared the stage with Larry the Cable Guy, the fact that people see truth in his jokes is the highest compliment.

“My first job was at Chick-fil-A. I got fired,” Crist said.

Steve Doocy asked: “How do you get fired at Chick-fil-A?”

“It’s part of my testimony now,” Crist joked. “Actually, I had to, I was stirring up the lemonade and I didn’t have the stirrer so I used my hand.”

Doocy told him, “I’d fire you, too.”

Crist joins other comedians like Dave Chappelle on Netflix, who took on the “cancel culture” in his “Sticks & Stones” special.

‘VeggieTales’ creator Phil Vischer says show’s comeback has ‘classic’ feel with new Bible stories

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_5975937903001_5975939026001-vs 'VeggieTales' creator Phil Vischer says show's comeback has 'classic' feel with new Bible stories fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/faith-values/faith fox news fnc/entertainment fnc d304d72f-e015-57a1-b912-554516aad171 Caleb Parke article

For anyone who grew up watching “VeggieTales,” have we’ve got good news for you!

The popular animated Christian show is coming back with 18 brand-new episodes, after it came to an end in 2004 with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber’s tagline: “Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.”

‘VEGGIETALES’ IS ‘RACIST’ AND ‘DANGEROUS’ FOR CHILDREN, CALIFORNIA STUDENTS CLAIM

“The goal with the new series is to go back to the feel of the classic ‘Veggies’ since I was involved,” said show creator Phil Vischer, who lost ownership in 2004.

The show will air on the Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) over the next three years in partnership with The Big Ideas Content Group and NBC Universal, according to CBN News. Vischer said it will be more like a variety show with different segments and story lengths.

‘I AM ISRAEL’ FILM HIGHLIGHTS LAND, PEOPLE OF THE BIBLE: ‘BEST PROOF GOD EXISTS’

“It was what I was interested in and what the fans have been asking for,” he added. “You can take smaller, more obscure Bible stories and introduce them to kids for the first time. It’s fun to dip into smaller stories that they’ve never heard before.”

‘VEGGIE TALES’ CREATOR RELEASES CREATIVE BIBLE THAT IS FOR KIDS AND ADULTS

The show, which started in 1993, is making a comeback with a Christmas special, “The Best Christmas Gift,” which will be released Tuesday on DVD and digital. It marks the first Christmas-themed VeggieTales since 2014.

Vischer says fans can expect “new Bible stories, new silly songs, and then the opportunity to see the characters behind the scenes to see what’s going on in between segments.”

Vischer released his first children’s Bible last month.

Why Pastor Joseph Prince takes communion daily — and his ‘simple’ message for America

Joseph Prince, a Singapore-based megachurch pastor who has been called a missionary to America and is credited with starting a “Gospel of Grace Revolution,” is touring the United States with a “simple” message for the nation. He’s sharing about the power of the Holy Communion, something he talks about in his latest book.

The senior pastor of New Creation Church talked to Fox News after the first stop on his U.S. tour of worship nights in New York City before his event in Washington, D.C., where he was invited to the White House to meet with Vice President Mike Pence and pray over him.

PAULA WHITE ON HOW SHE BECAME TRUMP’S SPIRITUAL ADVISER AND WHY HE’LL CARRY EVANGELICAL VOTE IN 2020

“I feel what America needs is to return back to the gospel of grace,” Prince said after his sold-out event at Madison Square Garden. “I hear a lot of preaching…that emphasizes you, not what God has done,” which he calls “the biggest heresy” today.

“The gospel is all about grace. Grace is not a teaching, it is a person of Jesus,” Prince added. “It’s actually the gospel.”

He says a lot of pastors and teachers today point their fingers at what they’re against, robbing believers of the good news. And for the New York Times best-selling author, whose new book is called “Eat Your Way to Life and Health: Unlock the power of the Holy Communion,” it’s something he learned himself, which he calls a “neglected but very powerful truth.”

WHO IS KANYE WEST’S CALIFORNIA PASTOR PREACHING AT SUNDAY SERVICE?

Before he became a megapastor who grew his church to more than 33,000 attendees, Prince was a young believer who didn’t dare take communion because he was afraid he was unworthy. But now it’s something he says he does daily after “the Lord opened my eyes to how he has made it so easy for any of us to receive the divine health that our Lord Jesus paid for us to enjoy.”

New York Times best-selling author, Joseph Prince, wrote a book about communion called, “Eat Your Way to Life and Health: Unlock the Power of the Holy Communion.” (New Creation Church)

“I believe that the Lord gave me a mission to teach on the health-giving, life-imparting, healing power of the Communion,” Prince said, explaining on why he wrote the book about a sacrament that some believers only partake of once a week or once a month, if at all. “I want them to know beyond a shadow of any doubt that God wants them healed, whole and well.”

PASTOR BILL JOHNSON ON THE RECIPE FOR REVIVAL, HOW BETHEL CHURCH EXPLODED ONTO THE GLOBAL SCENE

Prince calls Communion the “proverbial ‘fountain of youth’ mankind has been in search of for generations” and “is more powerful than any medicine, antibiotic, or medical procedure.” He believes it can be the difference between life and death. He shares testimonies of people throughout the book who have been healed by the power of Holy Communion.

And Prince says he witnessed the power of Communion while writing his book. His six-year-old son, Justin, had two skull fractures and was bleeding and throwing up after he fell from a high place on the playground during recess. When the doctors said all they could give him was painkillers, Prince and his wife, Wendy, partook communion with their second-grader at the hospital.

“The amazing this was, we could literally see him getting better and better each time we partook,” Prince said. “Every time we had Communion with Justin, his headaches got less painful, to the point when he told us he would rather just partake of the Communion that to take the painkillers that the doctors had given him!”

No matter how dire your medical report might be, God can still turn your situation around!

— Joseph Prince

Instead of taking six weeks to recover, as the doctors predicted, Justin was given the all-clear to return to school in just three weeks. “All glory to Jesus!” Prince said.

He encourages anyone who hasn’t been healed or seen any changes to keep going – and believing.

“Don’t give up. No matter what diagnosis you might have received from your doctor, keep filling your heart with scriptures,” Prince said. “Keep listening to messages about the Lord’s finished work and partaking of the Communion.”

Prince said his faith in Jesus means everything and it’s “not based on any legalistic human tradition but founded upon an intimate and meaningful relationship with my loving Savior.”

Paula White on how she became Trump’s spiritual adviser and why he’ll carry evangelical vote in 2020

President Trump‘s spiritual adviser, Paula White-Cain, told Fox News Thursday that she’s sharing “never-told stories” as his personal pastor in a new book.

The author of “Something Greater: Finding Triumph Over Tragedy” is confident, with a recent Fox News poll showing Trump with 81 percent of support from evangelicals, that he will carry the vote in 2020.

ANDREW BRUNSON, PASTOR IMPRISONED IN TURKEY, OPENS SENATE IN PRAYER, PRAYS OVER TRUMP

“We look at these baseless claims. First, it was the Russian hoax, now it’s the Ukranian inquiry of impeachment…and it’s not only against the president…but it’s against the vote of the American people in 2016,” White-Cain said on “Fox & Friends.”

President Trump’s personal pastor and spiritual adviser, Paula White, kicked off the president’s reelection campaign rally with a fiery prayer.

The president of Paula White Ministries said many Christian voters wondered if Trump would keep his campaign promises, to which she responded that he has.

White-Cain said Trump has been staunchly pro-life and pro-Isreal, strong on religious liberty and preventing human trafficking. She also said that the average American now [has] $1,400 more in their pocket.

“I could go on and on,” she said.

TRUMP CELEBRATES YOUNG AFRICAN IMMIGRANT’S PRAYER AT WHITE HOUSE: ‘SO AMAZING!’

She promised “a lot of voter registration, organization, and activation.”

On Trump’s tweets and, sometimes vulgar speech, White-Cain said many people disapprove of it, but many voters love the authenticity.

“Number one, he’s a New Yorker, a strong businessman,” she said. “I know him personally, so I know behind what would be seen as the persona and understand the man. I get to see him with his family, with his wife, with his grandchildren, his children. He’s a strong man, no doubt about that, but I also see the compassion, the humanity, the care, the strength in maybe a different way than many other people see it.”

TRUMP’S SPIRITUAL ADVISER, PAULA WHITE, PRAYS TO STOP ‘EVERY DEMONIC NETWORK’ AGAINST HIM

White-Cain said she starts her book, “Something Greater,” by explaining how, after 18 years of knowing Trump, she was connected to him and shares “never-told stories” of pastoring the former New York City real estate mogul.

“He’s watching Christian television and calls me out of the blue,” she said. “I’m joking and I’m like if I’m on ‘The Apprentice’ he’d be like you’re fired.”

Instead, however, Trump’s first words were positive, telling her she had the “it factor,” which she said was like an “anointing.”

White-Cain told “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt she decided to share her “extreme, vulnerable pain” in the book — including her father’s suicide, sexual and physical abuse, an unwanted divorce, and more — to help others find their purpose as she did.

“This was not the script that I would’ve written out…I don’t say I like the broken parts…but how can I show you what God can do in your life,” she said. “Looking back now I can see…that it prepared me for such a time as this.”

The wife of Jonathan Cain, who is on tour with the band Journey right now, further explained, “It prepared me to stand in a position and understand what’s really happening, from both a spiritual perspective and in a natural way, like how the system fights you when you stand for righteousness, how unfair our ‘supposedly’ fair democracy can be.”

A Florida man decided to surprise his community by paying off the lunch debt of every child in their town, Jupiter, but the good news doesn’t stop there. He sparked a movement.

When Andrew Levy found out more than 400 students in his area were unable to receive a full meal because they couldn’t afford to pay for school lunches, he stepped up to the plate.

“I thought, ‘That’s crazy.’ Food is something you shouldn’t have to think about,” Levy told WPEC. “Children shouldn’t learn hungry.”

Levy paid $944.34 to cover nine local schools’ lunch debt, something he said was a modest price to pay to make a difference for each child.

“I want to thank you for generosity, these kids will never forget your kindness,” one person wrote, according to Faithwire. “No kid should ever have to go hungry while at school so let’s make this happen in every city and in every state!!!” another added.

The School District of Palm Beach County, a much larger area, set up a form for people interested in helping out erase the $50,000 accumulated for over 180,000 enrolled students.

AG Barr blasts ‘militant secularists’ in speech on religious freedom

Attorney General William Barr blasted “militant secularists” and their attacks on Judeo-Christian values in a blistering speech at Notre Dame Friday, saying “religion has been under increasing attack” over the past five decades.

Barr, a devout Catholic, told students and faculty at the university’s law school that “the problem is not that religion is being forced on others, the problem is that irreligion is being forced — secular values are being forced on people of faith.”

“Among the militant secularists are many so-called progressives,” he said. “But where is the progress? We are told we are living in a post-Christian era, but what has replaced the Judeo-Christian moral system? What is it that can fill the spiritual void in the hearts of the individual person? And what is the system of values that can sustain human social life?”

Barr contends that many of society’s ills are caused because of the breakdown of religion in society.

“This is not decay,” he said. “This is organized destruction. Secular forces and their allies have marshaled all the forces of mass communication, popular culture, the entertainment industry, and academia, in an unremitting assault on religion and traditional values.”

Barr said “ground zero” for the attacks is the schools, pointing to New Jersey’s passage of a law requiring public schools to adopt LGBT curriculum.

“I can assure you that as long as I am attorney general, the Department of Justice will be at the forefront of this effort, ready to fight for the most cherished of all American liberties: the freedom to live according to our faith,” he concluded.

Booker quotes this Old Testament Bible verse to defend LGBTQ rights

Westlake Legal Group booker-thumb-1 Booker quotes this Old Testament Bible verse to defend LGBTQ rights fox-news/us/religion/christianity fox-news/us/religion fox-news/us/democratic-party fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/cory-booker fox-news/faith-values/faith fox news fnc/politics fnc Caleb Parke article 4fce067c-8bea-5033-9632-274ca08cf217

Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker, D-N.J., said he’s been dealing with the “juxtaposing issues of religious freedom and LGBTQ rights” all of his life as a Christian with people “using religion as a justification for discrimination.”

The New Jersey senator then used a Bible verse from the Old Testament to answer a question during CNN‘s LGBTQ town hall Thursday night.

Citing Micah 6:8, Booker made his defense after a UCLA student, who attended an all-girls Catholic high school in N.J., said her school routinely rejected requests for an LGBTQ+ club.

“It said in Micah, ‘What do you want from your Lord, but what is it you want from your people?'” he said. “Which is to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly — walk humbly — and, so for me, I cannot allow, as a leader, that people are going to use religion as a justification for discrimination.”

He added, “I can respect your religious views but also protect people from discrimination.”

Booker used the opportunity to push for the Equality Act as one of the laws “that do not allow people to discriminate…in our schools in education…healthcare….globally.”

He concluded, “My faith, as well as my American values, will make me fight on every front to make sure that people are not discriminating against someone because of who they are.”

At another point in the night, Booker said he once held negative views about “two men kissing” and “hating gays,” but said his activism started as a teenager on a crisis hotline.
