    “Religion is reclaiming cinema for sacred purposes at a rate never seen in history, with faith-based movies exploding from an obscure cottage industry last century into a multi-billion-dollar business. Box office totals may not sound huge but they add up to a genre of filmmaking that has amassed almost $2 billion since the end of the last centur. About a third of that is from “The Passion of the Christ” by Mel Gibson.

    Christian movies playing currently—
    God’s Not Dead3, Paul the Apostle of Christ and I Can Only Imagine.

    The most important thing is that these films are changing lives. People want answers and spiritual content. They want to learn about their faith.”

      "Easter is the apex holiday of Christian worship. It’s a hopeful time when followers of Christ around the world — including members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — remember and celebrate Jesus Christ’s suffering for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane, His crucifixion on Calvary’s cross and His glorious Resurrection from death. Church founder Joseph Smith called the testimonies of the life of Jesus Christ, including His Resurrection and ascension into heaven, the “fundamental principles of our religion,” and “all other things are only appendages” to it.
      With Easter and the Sunday sessions of the Church’s April 2018 general conference coinciding, each of the three members of the faith’s First Presidency shared important Easter messages at the conference’s Sunday morning gathering. . ."

        Kim Davis still fighting attacks from LGBT activists - WND


        "Davis’ lawyers long have contended that the case was not so much about same-sex duos obtaining licenses as it was an attack on Christians.
        Her lawyers, at that time, noted a recurring theme in court filings from homosexuals: punish Kim Davis.
        Liberty Counsel’s Staver said: “It has never really been about a marriage license – Rowan County has issued the licenses – it is about forcing their will on a Christian woman through contempt-of-court charges, jail and monetary sanctions.”
        The attorneys said then: “The fact is the plaintiffs already possess marriage licenses from Rowan County that have been approved as being valid by the Kentucky governor and Kentucky attorney general. Kim has taken all reasonable steps and good faith efforts to substantially comply with this court’s orders.”
        The evidence indicated the objective of the court cases was not simply to obtain licenses, but to reduce the Constitution’s religious rights to a secondary role behind homosexual rights, Liberty Counsel said."

              This is Orthodox Easter, for all the Orthodox Christians in the world.



              MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday congratulated Orthodox Christians and all Russian citizens on Orthodox Easter.



              "The great holiday of Easter, which symbolizes a triumph of life, good and love and has a huge moral significance. It wakens faith, hope and intention to do good deeds, to help to our fellow people. It consolidates people among eternal spiritual values and ideals. In these spring days filled with a sincere joy we understand the importance of the traditions and customs," Putin said in a statement, as quoted by the Kremlin press service.

              Putin along with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin also attended the festive Easter service at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.

                "This week, moviegoers along the Wasatch Front may have their heartstrings pulled as they watch handcarts pushed in a new Mormon youth comedy called, "Trek: The Movie." The film opens this Friday.
                As I've traced the history of the trek phenomenon — from an obscure one-off stake activity to a cultural ritual captured on the silver screen — I've wondered whether the Mormon pioneers could have envisioned such re-enactments becoming a central part of the Mormon youth experience.

                Today, they are increasingly a rite of passage undertaken every summer by thousands of Mormons. And, well, if you think treks only take place in stakes between Logan and Provo, Utah, you may be surprised to learn that they are not uncommon in South America and elsewhere around the globe. . ."

                  Re: CHRISTIAN News.

                  “ Cardinal Joseph Zen, emeritus bishop of Hong Kong, blasted Pope Francis’ deal to accommodate and appease China in its desire to control the church by having its functionaries choose its leadership.
                  In defending the pact with China, one of the pope’s supporters, Bishop Sanchez Sorondo said today’s totalitarian Chinese regime today best exemplifies the social doctrine of the Catholic Church among governments in the world.
                  Zen, who spent seven years teaching in China’s official, state-approved church, said that from that direct experience, “I know that the church is completely enslaved to the government.”
                  In a blog written in December, Zen said Chinese authorities had demolished the crosses on many church buildings and questioned if the Vatican was knowledgeable about what had been happening. He said, in effect, the deal amounted to handing over the Catholic Church in China to “an atheist regime.”
                  The Catholic Church in China is divided into the illegal “underground” church, which remains faithful and in communion with Rome, and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association, whose bishops are appointed by the government. Members of the underground church are often persecuted by the Chinese government. While Catholic backers of the proposal justify it on the grounds it is needed to help preserve the hierarchy in China, Cardinal Zen invoked the example of Central Europe under Communism. Such agreements avoid appointing bishops who systematically oppose the government but, he contended, this means choosing opportunists who obey the government."

                      Anchorage voters reject bill to limit which bathroom transgender people can use – GOPUSA

                      Anchorage, Alaska.
                      Proposition 1 sought to repeal a municipal code ordinance that entitles persons to use restrooms, locker rooms and dressing rooms that are “consistent with their gender identity” and define “sex” as an individual’s “immutable biological condition of being male or female” as determined by the gender listed on their birth certificate.
                      Nearly $1 million was spent by groups taking a side on the question. The campaign in favour of the proposal spent $128,000, with most of that money coming from Alaska Family Action, a Christian public policy organisation.
                      But they were heavily outspent by a coalition of groups fighting against the proposition that included several organizations from outside the state, including the Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign, which donated $10,000, the New York-based American Civil Liberties Union, which donated $15,000 and Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands, which donated $100,000.

                        It's a bit of a surprise to hear voters rejected the measure. Shows how far down the tubes we are. It turns me more to prayer for this fallen world.

                          God Is the Supreme Scientist, Says Curator of BYU’s Museum of Paleontology - Church News and Events


                          "Rod Scheetz, curator of Brigham Young University’s Museum of Paleontology, feels no friction between his vigorous scientific study and the school’s mission to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life. Operating a scientifically rigorous paleontological research facility and museum on a faith-based campus, he said, is a “natural fit.”

                          Curiosity and religious devotion can be shared attributes.

                          “That’s the beauty of the LDS Church—it’s one of the reasons why I joined the Church,” he said. “The LDS Church is looking for truth, and we don’t find truth only in the scriptures. There’s truth all around us; we just have to search for it.”

                          Scheetz was 12 years old and already a rock hound in the early 1970s when he reached out to the “father” of BYU’s paleontology program—James “Dinosaur Jim” Jensen. Young Rod had found what he believed were baby dinosaur bones near his home of Delta, Colorado. Impressed by the boy’s enthusiasm (and correct assessment), Dr. Jensen invited him to take part in a local fossil dig.
                          “He kept inviting me, year after year, to work at the quarry—I loved it,” said Scheetz.

                          The budding paleontologist eventually learned Jensen worked for the Church-owned BYU. Most of his team were returned missionaries. So he posed a question to his mentor: Why is a Church-owned school digging for dinosaurs?

                          “It’s simple,” Jensen answered, “we know why the earth was created; we just don’t know how.”

                          Scheetz went back to work, returning soon with a follow-up: “So why was the earth created?” “Well,” said Jensen, “you’ll have to talk to the missionaries about that.” Soon Scheetz was learning about the plan of salvation and the Restoration even while working the dig site with the returned missionaries.

                          He eventually enrolled at BYU, joined the Church, and continued his paleontology studies under Jensen. Some on campus were suspicious of science, prompting debates over, say, creationism and evolution. But Scheetz never picked sides between his scientific learning and his burgeoning gospel testimony. No need, he said—the Creator is also the supreme Scientist.

                          “The earth is not some fly-by-night operation; it took billions of years to create. For me, that’s humbling. That’s awesome. To me, that means this world took a tremendous amount of preparation.
                          “How much more of a testimony builder is there than that?”

                          BYU’s ongoing support of paleontological study is evidenced by the sprawling repository/museum located across the street from Lavell Edwards Stadium. Housed at the facility are more than 17,000 specimens, including many that still bear the late Jensen’s fingerprints.

                          Have you heard the rumor that dinosaur bones rested below the football stadium? It’s true. Cached below the venue were dozens of large pallets laden with extracted bones until additional storage space was built near the museum about 10 years ago.

                          A popular (and free admission) destination for school groups, families, and Scout troops, the BYU Museum of Paleontology remains a dynamic research center. Both graduate and undergraduate students are establishing their dinosaur bona fides—building maps; analyzing, cleaning, and classifying bones; and editing manuscripts for publication.

                          Meanwhile, field work continues in fossil-rich quarries in eastern Utah and western Colorado. “We’re out every summer. … There are still a lot of dinosaurs to be found.”
