A pair of ads about Jesus will air on Super Bowl Sunday as part of a Christian group's efforts to spread a message of love and understanding to 100 million people. The $20 million advertising campaign, funded in part by the family behind religious craft store chain Hobby Lobby, as well as Christian groups and other anonymous donors, will kick off with two ads centered on the idea that when it comes to Jesus, "He Gets Us." At a time when the U.S. Christian population is down and religion has become a divisive topic, the group hopes to reach as many as possible and help spread the message of Jesus,

It's not too late. One of the two thieves being crucified along side of Jesus confessed that he was guilty of his crime and deserved his punishment but that he believed Jesus was without sin. Jesus replied to the believer thief, "Verily, I say unto thee, today you will be with me in paradise."

Thank you for bringing that quote to the last hours of this Friday night, #1. I've seen and heard it countless times, but it never ceases to leave me in awe. The power of that "private" conversation between two men nearing their death offers such hope.

Some of their previous ads give me the impression that Jesus is okay with a lot of the immorality going on at the moment. Message to those Churchians, he is most certainly not. But yes, he does get us.

The problem isn’t that Jesus doesn’t “get us”. He knows the hearts - the very thoughts - of each one of us. The problem is that too many of us don’t “get Him”. Too much “dust” on too many Bibles, and too many homes that don’t even have one. The answers to the lack of love and unity is in there, and so very much more vital information. I hope these ads spur some interest in searching to see.

Their whole Jesus was a refugee is bull. Jesus was never a refugee or homeless. He traveled Isreal to preach the gospel. They lost me right there and in another they make it seem he was alright with immorality. No Thanks, I'll get my Jesus elsewhere.

The 'Jesus was a refugee' commercial stuck in my craw as well. Mary and Joseph left with infant Jesus because King Herod was killing all infant sons to ensure his kingship would not be challenged. Whois the king now who has threatened murder of all infant sons to all the SA invaders crashing our borders? Lefty bunk.

To me, this is just one more effort to sell the idea that Jesus is a 'good man' but it denies His divinity. Its anther sales job of saying Jesus was a 'refugee, homeless, underprivileged person.

There will not be a lot of poor folk from 3rd world countries that have never heard of Jesus watching a bunch of wealthy spoiled brats playing a game. $20 mill could be spent in much better ways to spread the Gospel.

Jesus gets Jesus. God is love; He's also God of wrath. He has a way to salvation, and His way is the only way. He's not whatever you imagine Him to be, and He doesn't go along to get along.

Jesus was born to history's only example of 'refugees' where the breadwinner was a working, skilled craftsman who obeyed his native country's law to appear in person in his home district to pay his taxes. "And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city."

Joe Biden will complete a full physical exam Thursday as the oldest-ever U.S. president readies for a possible 2024 reelection fight. No official announcement has yet been made as to whether he will run again. AFP reports the White House has promised to make the results public via the president’s doctor just as it did during a previous medical checkup in 2021. On that occasion the octogenarian underwent a complete examination, including a colonoscopy under general anesthesia, at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Biden transferred his powers for one hour and 25 minutes to Vice President Kamala Harris, making her the first woman in U.S. history to hold the presidential prerogative.

Joe Biden raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he referred to the first black governor of Maryland as 'boy'. Biden, 80, was in the town of Lanham to speak to members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. He referenced the newly-elected 44-year-old governor Wes Moore, a former college football star, and used a word which is seen as a derogative term for black men. 'You got a h*** of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,' Biden told the union workers. 'He's the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He's got some guns on him.'

The red-headed prince and his floppy-hatted wife are seen promoting the prince's book - Waaagh - whose cover strongly resembles Harry's memoir Spare. They storm off a TV show after being challenged about their motives.

After all, as a good friend deep in politics recently pointed out to me, Nikki Haley is the Kamala Harris of the Republican Party. And now Nikki says she wants to be president, announcing her doomed candidacy with hilariously hackneyed and overwrought fanfare ("Now is the time for a strong and proud America!"), though everyone with half a cerebral cortex can see that she's really just trying to position herself as the vice-presidential nominee when either Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis gets the nomination.

Local and state authorities evacuated all residents within one mile of the crash and started a controlled burn of the volatile chemicals to decrease the risk of an explosion. Vinyl chloride, a carcinogen used to manufacture PVC, was released from five train cars last week in the form of massive plumes of dark smoke visible throughout eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

Since President Trump left office, many of the “trustworthy” media outlets have created a talking point that is now held by a minority, yet noticeable number of Conservative Americans. The belief is “DeSantis is Trump, without the baggage.” This group supported President Trump’s policies and felt he did a tremendous job as president, but now feel the baggage that came with Trump would not be present with Ron DeSantis. Many have taken this a step further and believe this baggage would give DeSantis (or others) a better chance of winning in a general election against the Democrat nominee than President Trump.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — A group of Catholic women claims they were denied Communion at an Englewood church for wearing rainbow-colored face masks. Sally Odenheimer said it was an effort to show support for Maggie Barton, an LGBTQ teacher fired from the church’s affiliated Catholic school. Barton claims she was fired from All Souls Catholic School in Englewood after the Archdiocese of Denver learned of her same-sex relationship.The Archdiocese said she was fired because she violated her contract, which includes “refraining from taking any public position or conducting himself or herself in a manner that is contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.”

There were two things that I missed during Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles. The first was Kansas City’s game-winning drive, which saw kicker Harrison Butker seal the underdog Chiefs’ 38-35 victory with a last-second field goal. My inattention was unintentional; my daughter, in the throes of a stomach flu that’s currently working its way through the family, decided to decorate our floor as the game came down to the wire.

U.S. intelligence officials were tracking the spy balloon that was shot down earlier this month since it lifted off from the south coast of China, U.S. officials said Tuesday. According to U.S. officials, after takeoff, the spy balloon drifted east in the direction of Guam and Hawaii and then went north to Alaska and entered U.S. airspace on Jan. 28. Given the path, it's possible that the balloon was blown off course by weather, but U.S. officials said that once it came south over the continental United States, it was being controlled by China. The tracking of the balloon was first reported by The Washington Post. China has insisted

Nowadays it’s rare to go to a restaurant without grabbing your phone for access to a menu or for ordering takeout. Some concert venues actually require guests to show their tickets from their mobile devices.
