On this week’s “Newsmakers,” a famous TV host finds Jesus, a look behind the curtain at The Babylon Bee, and one doctor’s dire marijuana warning.
Big Brother Host finds Jesus
Longtime “Big Brother” host Julie Chen Moonves is known for her successful TV career, but she’s also making headlines this month for another reason: her Christian faith. Moonves recently released “But First, God: An Audio Memoir of Spiritual Discovery,” a project rooted in her personal faith discovery.
“When I finally found Jesus in 2018, I had never owned a Bible,” she told CBN Digital. “And I was gifted one from a friend who was one of my favorite cameramen working in TV news.” That cameraman, who later became a pastor, helped Moonves on her journey to faith, as she dove into the Bible and began to discover eternal truth for the very first time.
