Here's a quick summary of the top stories on charismanews.com:
Country music icon Dolly Parton is well known for her award-winning albums, numerous films and her family-friendly amusement park, Dollywood. She has also been recognized as a generous philanthropist, which dates back several decades.
Last year, Parton donated $1 million to help fund research for the Moderna vaccine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. This past October, Dollywood Foundation raised $700,000 for flood victims in areas of middle Tennessee.
And most recently, her Imagination Library project announced that it's donated more than 170 million books to children under five.
Dr. Mehmet Oz, the celebrity surgeon and host of television's The Dr. Oz Show, has launched a campaign for Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate seat now held by Pat Toomey, who is retiring. If Oz wins the Republican nomination, he will be the first Muslim-born individual to be nominated for a Senate seat by a major American political party.
But Oz is not a Muslim in practice. The son of Turkish immigrants, the 61-year-old cardiothoracic surgeon, who gained celebrity as a frequent guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, affiliates himself with the Swedenborgian Church of North America after being introduced to the church by his wife, Bryan Athyn.
Wikipedia says the Swedenborgian Church of America "is one of the few Christian sects that draws its faith from the Bible as illuminated by the teachings of Emmanuel Swedenborg. The church's website says it is "an open-minded, forward-looking Christian church drawing its faith from the Bible as illuminated by the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772). If you have serious questions about traditional Christian theology, yet wish to explore the deeper aspects of the Bible and the Christian faith, we may be what you are looking for. We worship a God of unconditional love, whose warmth and light can deepen your inner life and give direction to your spiritual journey."
Things are starting to get really weird. What I am about to share with you sounds very strange, but it is all true.
Before I get into it, let me ask you a question. If you could have a vaccine passport permanently embedded into your hand, would you do it? Amazingly, some people in Sweden are willingly doing this to themselves.
They are putting microchips that contain their vaccine passport information into their hands, and they are raving about how convenient this is. You can actually watch a video of this being done to someone right here. The video is not in English, but you will be able to understand what is happening.
