    Wynonna Judd's daughter Grace Kelley has been hit with another charge stemming from her arrest on April 5. On Thursday, records show that the 27-year-old was also charged with "soliciting prostitution." She allegedly "exposed her breasts and lower body" on a busy highway in Alabama and — per a Daily Mail interview with Millbrook police chief P.K. Johnson — was carrying a sign that said "ride for a ride." Her bond is now set to $2,000. A spokesperson for the Millbrook Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. Kelley, whose father is Arch Kelley III, was...

    I've had an amazing weekend, and I want to share it with you all, that you may derive strength and hope from it. I've touched a few lives and been touched with an outpouring of love this weekend, and done so in meaningful ways. From my beloved lady, to several very close internet friends, we've had heart-to-heart talks and made some tremendous plans. America is in grave danger. We stand on the precipice of having one-party rule by the Democrats at a national level. That, coupled with the heinous plans of the Globalist W.E.F. people, scares me greatly. Their plans...

  • It’s All About Me and All About Now:” One of the Greatest Errors About Gods’ Grace

    PatriotandLiberty ^ | 2020 | Mike Johnston
    Arguably one of the greatest errors we can fall into when it comes to understanding grace is that ‘It’s all about me and all about now’. This attitude has reached epidemic proportions in Western churches and may well explain our relative lack of resilience and usefulness compared to other parts of the world. Such a view of grace is, however, not only far-removed from what has been true in the church through most of its history, but from the Bible itself. In a way that may seem surprising, Scripture indicates that there is a dimension of grace that we will...
  • Can you tell me more about the concept of grace and peace in Christianity? [as compiled by poe.com, an AI language model created by OpenAI]

    Certainly! In Christianity, the concepts of grace and peace hold significant importance. They are deeply rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ and are central to the Christian faith. Grace: Grace is often described as the unmerited favor and freely given love and mercy of God towards humanity. It is a fundamental concept in Christianity, emphasizing that salvation and forgiveness are not earned through human efforts or works, but rather received as a gift from God. Christians believe that through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross, God's grace is extended to all who place their faith in Him....

    Gene Kim teaches readers of the Bible how to better interpret and divide the Word of Truth. In order to get a better understanding of the Bible, he instructs the reader to understand each Scripture by asking, who is the author? Who is he speaking to? What time period is the author addressing? Does the Scripture have double application?

    Josh Timonen was one of Richard Dawkins’ closest companions from 2006-2010. He was even working for Richard Dawkins when Dawkins was publicly shaming Ray Comfort for videos that appeared as if Ray was saying that bananas prove the existence of God—which eventually culminated in Ray being known as The Banana Man. Yet by the grace of God, over a decade later, Josh ended up coming to Christ! Here’s his story.

    Therefore I tell you, every sin and blasphemy will be forgiven people, but the blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.So what exactly is blasphemy against the Spirit, what many call the unpardonable sin?

    BEDFORD, Pennsylvania — From across the curved chestnut bar in the sprawling lobby of the Bedford Springs Hotel in this central Pennsylvania town, it was hard not to be drawn into the conversation between Christopher Ege, JoAnn Harrison, and her husband, Dan. Given their animation and laughter, one might have assumed all three had known each other for years and clearly shared a lot in common. As they discussed trips they had made to Kentucky to visit the iconic Bourbon Trail while contemplating the bourbons on hand, the discussion went from the history of the Buffalo Trace distillery to politics....

    God has been so incredibly good over the years. So much so that I have been keeping notes about sermons I have heard, or I find myself compelled to write during times of praise and worship. My hope is to bless folks in the process. I tried to keep the cost reasonable, wasn't looking for an insane profit. Just enough of God's provision to help cover some bills from my spouse being in a nursing facility.

    As diverse as the English language is, it really falls short when it comes to expressing the Biblical concept of Love. The Greek language has several words to express different types of love, everything from romantic love to brotherly love. In the New Testament, the Holy Spirit introduces a new word for love – Agape. The word has been translated as love or charity, and those unfortunately miss the mark. Agape is divine, or sacrificial love. It is pure love, absent of any selfishness. Or as John explains, it IS God. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is...

    The leap of a frog is a quintessential evolutionary feat. The critter’s girthy gams thrust from behind to springboard the body up and out; a pair of acrobatic arms stretch forward to seamlessly break the fall. The landing is “very precise, very controlled,” says Richard Essner, a biologist at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. One might expect that any frog worth its salt should be able to stick it. “And most frogs,” says Marcio Pie, a biologist at Edge Hill University, in the United Kingdom, “do.” Then there is the poor pumpkin toadlet. Spanning roughly a centimeter from snout to bum—about...

    Depending on who you ask there are many ways to say grace before a meal. You show us how you pray when gathered with others and we'll tell you what that says about your theology. So listen carefully next time during grace and that'll be a dead giveaway as to what that person believes. The prayer is for massively unhealthy fried chicken and casseroles to nurture our bodies - Baptist Every other word is "thou", "thy", or "yeoldethinesteth" - KJV Baptist Prayer is led by a woman - Hey, wait a minute, you're not a Christian!

    Prayer Warriors, I have a small request for a Vietnam Vet friend of mine who is in his last hours in this realm. Please pray for him, his comfort, but most of all his Salvation. I'm not 100% sure about his commitment to Jesus. I went over there and prayed over him and read a few verses from Romans. Your prayers are greatly appreciated here. May The Lord Jesus be glorified in all of this! His name is Bill. God Bless and Thank you!

    The Clarksvillian ^ | March 25, 2021 | Dave McGuire
    As the leader of one of the world’s most visible bands, U2’s Bono is an extremely polarizing figure. On one side, he’s the source for some of the greatest, most popular music of a generation. He has also been one of the most charity minded celebrities covering a cause in ways not seen since the days of Harry Chapin. And that crossing between entertainer and activist has pushed people into either loving or hating him.
  • Three Attesting Sign of Elisha...Elijah pt 17

    And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him. And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the Lord hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send. And when they urged him till he was...

    During the height of the COVID-19 lockdown controversy, Grace Community Church in Southern California, led by John MacArthur, got a lot of attention because they defied Governor Gavin Newsom's order to stop having church. Aside from an initial closure, the church met anyway and was repeatedly fined for doing so. Lots of people, especially other Christians, condemned the church's decision. Some condemned them because they believed it was reckless and others condemned them because they saw it as a failure to submit to the governing authorities as Scripture commands Christians to do. Grace Community Church's belief was that the county...

    Vindictive. That's the only way to categorize the actions of the City of Burbank after they had the power and phone lines cut from Tinhorn Flats, the oldest bar in town. How do we know it's vindictive and not for medical reasons? Because they did it two days before the ban on indoor dining was to be lifted... “You will comply.” That’s the message the city of Burbank is sending to Tinhorn Flats Saloon & Grill as well as every resident in their city. Anyone who is willing to cross them, as the oldest bar in the city has been...
