Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
In August of 2020, televangelist Perry Stone of Voice of Evangelism in Cleveland, Tennessee, was placed on a forced leave of absence due to allegations of misconduct and deviation from "the biblical standards set in place for VOE leadership," as reported by Charisma News. Now, additional allegations of misconduct, including a report that the FBI is investigating his ministry, have surfaced against Stone through a Dec. 25 report in the Chattanooga Times Free Press—but VOE says the reports contain nothing new.
Charisma News reached out to VOE, which released the following statement:
Perry Stone Ministries continues to focus on spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. The recent news article against the ministry bears no new information or allegations. We ask that friends and supporters operate by Scripture in Luke 6:43-45, "For every tree is known by the fruit it bears." Recently doors opened for thousands to receive Christ through the lens of a camera. The ministry is experiencing record-setting growth and outreach internationally. Thank you for your prayers and agreement with us for God's continued blessing.
Stone, 62, founded VOE in 1979, hosts the Manna-fest TV program and preaches to thousands around the world. He has also written dozens of books and recorded more than 100 DVDs and CDs, the Times Free Press reports.
Walking along Paris' famed Champs-Élysées this week, actor Jonathan Roumie, who plays Jesus in the television series The Chosen, tells CBN News that he's humbled by how God is using the show to touch millions of people around the world.
"Do you often pinch yourself realizing the magnitude of the role that you are playing and how well the show has done?" CBN News asked.
"I don't know if I pinch myself, I'm more 'bow my head to the ground' because I never feel that I'm worthy of the things that are happening as a result," Roumie replied.

Where did all the workers go? That is a great mystery that continues to be unsolved. All over America, businesses are literally hiring anyone with a pulse and there are "help wanted" signs all over the place. But the number of people that are actually working is still close to 4 million below the pre-pandemic peak.
What happened to all of those extra workers? They certainly aren't on unemployment, because claims for unemployment benefits are the lowest that we have seen "in decades." So where are they? It is almost as if millions upon millions of people have disappeared from the system completely over the past couple of years.
Needless to say, this lack of workers is having a dramatic impact on the delivery of basic services all over the country.
