Kevin Sorbo — Actor, Played Lead In Hit TV Show HerculesKevin Sorbo has enjoyed success on television for over 20 consecutive years, a feat rarely accomplished by an actor. He quickly rose to stardom in the title role of the hit series Hercules, the Legendary Journeys. The series passed Baywatch as the most watched TV show in the world. The innovative action hour revitalized the entire action/adventure genre on television and fostered two spin-off series Xena, Warrior Princess and Young Hercules. Following the success of Hercules, Kevin went on to star in the lead role of “Captain Dylan Hunt” in Gene Roddenberry’s, Andromeda. Kevin has guest starred in Just Shoot Me, According to Jim, Hope and Faith, Two and a Half Men, The Middleman, Psych, and had recurring appearances on Dharma and Greg, and on Fox’s The OC. He also appeared in the season one finale of the hit comedy series Gary, Unmarried. He’s also appeared in countless film productions, including Soul Surfer starring Helen Hunt, Denis Quaid and Carrie Underwood. Based on a true life story: On Oct. 31, 2003, teen surfer Bethany Hamilton lay on her board in placid waters just off a Kauai beach. From out of nowhere, a 14-foot tiger shark attacked, taking off Bethany’s arm at the shoulder and setting in motion events that would test the strong Christian faith of Bethany and her family and, ultimately, reveal God’s purpose for her life.

This week on the Counsel of Many: A 32 year old man is falling in love with a 17 year old and wants to know what the Bible says about age difference and if anyone feels this would be permissible.
"I am 32 and I am falling for a girl who is 15 years younger than me. I am wondering if the Bible has anything to say regarding the issue of love, and specifically that between two people of a ten-year age gap. After much thought and discussion with a few people, I seem to get the general idea that there are many people who would frown upon a relationship with such an age gap, because of the general distrust and suspicions that one would have of the older person and his intentions in such a relationship. Are there things that I should be concerned with regards to considering the possibility of such a relationship? One question I've been asked frequently is what do I see in her. I've often find it hard to describe the things about a girl that makes me love her. But I think partially it helps that we share similar outlooks in life, and opinions on core issues, such as religion. Also, she's incredibly bright and witty, and we understand each other's nuances. And she has that desire and interest to know a little bit about everything, much like myself. If anything, I am more knowledgeable on how I feel about her. And that is, I would want to get to know her as much as I can even more, wanting to take care of her and be there for her when she is down and out. Be there to guide her if I feel she might be going down the wrong road. Revel in that emotional closeness, where we can share our ups and downs with each other. To give in to her if she should have flaws and try and compensate for those flaws by being more understanding. Some people have said that the difference in maturity would be an obstacle and I understand how that's true with regards to coping with say, relationship arguments. Apart from that, it is hard for me to see how someone from a similar maturity level, having experienced similar things would attract me more. I do not feel more attracted to a person more just because they have gone to college, or because they went thru similar harrowing experiences as I did. Firstly because I personally feel that similarity in experiences do not necessarily result in the same mature, wise choices, or in other words do not bring about wisdom in everybody. I've known older people who are rather foolish and younger people who continually surprise me with their pearls of wisdom that we've been blinded to. Secondly I think for me and for others, it might be a misguided notion to say that maturity is an attractive factor. For me, it's the personality and belief systems that attracts me. I may be wrong but I believe where maturity fails, it is our belief systems that comes to our rescue. In that sense, I feel that maturity is merely a reaffirmation of our beliefs that is shaped from our parents as well as from the Bible. Lastly, I feel that perhaps sometimes the issue of maturity may be brought up as a result of the sense of uneasiness and perplexity that arises from not being able to understand how an older person can fall for a much younger person. Having said that, I wonder if we can ever truly understand in other cases, why those couples fell for each other, what is it that they see in each other. I am only your average guy on the block so I may have missed out on some pearls of wisdom that the Bible may has with regards to relationships and wide age gaps specifically. As far as I know, I don't know of any but would be grateful to hear if there is, and well even if it is not from the Bible, it would still be good to hear your thoughts on this."

Should Charles McVety have been taken off the air or was he wrongfully persecuted?January 31st 2011 -- CTS (Crossroads Television System) regrets that Word TV will no longer be broadcast due to its lack of compliance with the CTS Code of Ethics to which Word TV agreed under contract. Last week, its producer and host, Dr. Charles McVety erroneously communicated that CTS was being pressured to censor Word TV; these comments are inaccurate and misleading. The fact is that Word TV failed to keep its agreement to comply with the CTS Code of Ethics and indicated a refusal to comply in the future. Unfortunately, numerous attempts by CTS to work with Dr. McVety were unsuccessful.
At the beginning of the year, Crossroads Television System (CTS) cancelled Charles McVety's Word TV program. The Canadian Broadcast Standards Council found the station had violated its broadcast codes after McVety, president of Canada Christian College, made comments about Toronto's gay pride parade and the proposed sex education curriculum for Ontario. Apparently though, it was less about what he said and more about “how” he said it. It was his “tone”, especially with regards to an apparent gay-conspiracy agenda, as well as a few factual inaccuracies. Are you happy to see Charles off the air or do you feel the Liberal broadcasting hall monitors were out to get him?
