"Media" used to mean "print media" like books and newspapers, but the world has grown. Today media can also mean radio, television and movies delivered to personal computers, tablets and cell phones. As the world's best selling book of all time the Bible continues to make headlines, both good and bad, across all forms of media. Former LGBTQ members plan march to tell how Jesus changed them, Pastor who spent two years imprisoned in Turkey shares the Bible verse that got him through, 13 Christians were beaten then released in the Sudan, and the Museum of the Bible removes a forgery from exhibit.

While California tries to silence any literature that teaches homosexuals how to go straight, former members of the LGBTQ community are planning a Freedom March on November 4 in LA to tell the world how Jesus and his love transformed their lives.

"It wasn't a gay to straight thing. It was a lost to a saved thing. Someone encountered me and told me how much God would change me if I stopped doing it on my own strength. If I fall in love with Christ, he would do everything else," Luis Ruiz told CBN News after the Freedom March on DC last May.

Pastor Andrew Brunson, who had been held in a Turkish prison for over two years and was recently released due to efforts by the Trump administration, recently told reporters that 2 Timothy 4.7 saw him through the hard times: "I have competed well; I have finished the race; I have kept the faith!"

In a story ripped from the pages of the Book of Acts, 13 Christians were arrested, tortured and released with a warning: they would be charged apostacy, public disturbance and crimes against the state. The first 12 were released on October 21, and their pastor (evangelist Tajaldin Idriss Yousif) the net day. All were tortured, one is in critical condition. The authorities in Darfur are targeting Muslims who have turned to Jesus, and more arrests and torture are likely forthcoming.

In other news, The Museum of the Bible in D.C. has removed from their display five fragments thought to be from the Dead Sea Scrolls but that turned out to be forgeries. On display now is 3 other fragments that do not exhibit the same anomalies that plagued the others. Jeff Kloha, chief curatorial officer for the museum, was forthcoming about the forgeries and states, “This is part of our ongoing commitment to making sure we’re adhering to all legal and museum standards, that our displays are accurate, that when we have information, we make it available,”
