Christian Actor in Hollywood: 'Can I Do This in Front of Jesus?'

Money and power have been powerful tools used by Satan to pull down Christians into his world and silence their testimony.

Being an actor in Hollywood brings with it a test of one's faith that few have experienced. The fame. The personal glory. The money. All these and more are used to seduce one away from their faith and into a life of the flesh.

This is not to say it is impossible for a grounded Christian to not only survive in TinselTown but to thrive and be used by the Lord as an example to millions.

Colorado Megachurch Fires Worship Artist Over Alleged Extramarital Affair

Megachurch New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has fired its worship leader over an alleged extramarital relationship—the second time he's reportedly been let go from a church for moral reasons.

New Life Church Executive Pastor Brian Newberg told Charisma News in an email that Rozier, a former Vertical Worship band member and song writer, was "immediately terminated after we learned of his relationship with a woman from another city."

Rozier had worked at New Life for more than a year and was part of the megachurch's band, New Life Worship. Prior to that, Rozier served as the worship pastor at Chicago's Harvest Bible Chapel in the Chicago area.

Why America Is In Danger of Losing Its Privilege as God's Ally

2023CMPrintcoverThe Dutch pastor, scholar and church leader Marinus Burcht van 't Veer [1904-1944] examined the conflict, depicted in 1 Kings 16-21, between the prophet Elijah, King Ahab, and Queen Jezebel in his book "My God Is Yahweh: Elijah and Ahab in an Age of Apostasy."

With regard to ancient Israel's abandonment of God he noted, "Now that Israel was no longer interested in her calling, the Lord took away her privileges," befittingly adding, "The privilege of being God's ally would now be enjoyed by others."

Modern American Christendom finds itself in a similar predicament. The nation's Founders disembarked at Jamestown in 1607, erected a cross, took communion and pledged "to reach the people within these shores with the gospel of Jesus Christ and raise up Godly generations after us." Sharing a spiritually robust English Puritan kinship, the founders possessed the kind of unshakeable faith that nowadays is hardly ever seen.
