Did the Russian warship, Moskva, have a piece of Christ’s ‘True Cross’ on board when it sank?

You may have heard of the sinking of the Moskva, Russia’s flagship in the Baltic Sea on April 14, 2022. There are now reports that it had a piece of Christ’s True Cross on board when it sank. The high-tech missile ship provided protection to the Russian fleet trying to supply the country’s army that has invaded Ukraine. Ukraine’s military claimed it had hit and sunk the ship with land-based cruise missiles. The Russian military initially denied this stating there had been a fire onboard that ignited the ship’s ammunition resulting in a massive explosion. It also stated that the ship was still afloat, and being towed for repairs. The Russian media later stated the ship had sunk. The reaction by Russia since the sinking basically confirmed that it was indeed sunk by Ukraine’s military, and Russia was in damage control over this humiliating defeat. Moskva had a crew of over 500 men, and it is uncertain how many were killed in the attack. It is the largest warship sunk since World War II. There …

Study: High social media usage may cause mental health issues for teens?

According to a study conducted by Cambridge University’s Digital Mental Health program, social media may be causing mental issues in teens, particularly as they enter puberty. The study, reported by The Verge, noted that it came to this conclusion from studying the results of seven surveys of 72,000 individuals between 2011 and 2018 and a survey of 17,000 between the ages of 10 to 21. The study found that higher social media usage resulted in teens having ‘low’ self-esteem and ‘poor’ body image, which showed up when they entered puberty, and also at the time they were ready to leave home. The Verge reports: “Narrowing in on adolescents, the team found that for people in the 16- to 21-year-old age range, both very low and very high social media use were both linked with lower life satisfaction. In 10- to 15-year-olds, there wasn’tmuch difference in life satisfaction between kids reporting low and high social media use. But in that group, girls with high social media use had lower life satisfaction than boys.” READ: Social media …

What the healing of a woman on a ventilator and in a wheelchair shows us about healing?

It is important to remember that it doesn’t matter what church you attend, it is faith in Christ that brings miraculous healing. Faithwire recently reported on the healing of a woman attending a Roman Catholic Church in Lansing, Michigan. Dani Laurion who attends Saint Mary Cathedral suffers from postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and autonomic dysfunction and as a result, has been in a wheelchair and on a ventilator for nearly 13 years. She was attending a healing service at the church on March 15, 2022, when she raised her hands in prayer. “I reached up,” Dani said, “and I just said, ‘I need you, and I need you to hold me and just take care of me. At the same moment, one of the church leaders released a word of knowledge, that someone’s lungs were being filled. As soon as Dani uttered that prayer, she experienced a strange sensation in her body that felt like someone had turned on a tap in her ears and water was pouring down through her body. She immediately …

Does the controversial Nazareth Inscription support the rumors circulating at the time about Christ’s resurrection?

In his report on Christ’s resurrection, Matthew writes that an angel rolled away the massive stone that was blocking the entrance of Jesus’ tomb and then sat on it. The terrified guards fled in terror. This same angel whose appearance looked like lightning told the women who had come to visit the tomb that Jesus had risen from the dead and was now on His way to Galilee (Matthew 28:1-10). Matthew then adds this strange addendum, reporting on what happened when the guards told the chief priests and elders about their encounter with the angel. Matthew writes that the chief priest bribed the guards into saying that the disciples had stolen Christ’s body after the guards had fallen asleep. But then Matthew adds this odd statement. 14 If this report gets to the governor, we will satisfy him and keep you out of trouble.” 15 So the soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has been widely circulated among the Jews to this very day. (Matthew 28:14-15 NIV) The Jewish leaders assured the …
