  • Brian Presley — Hollywood Actor (Roles in Beverly Hills 90210, 7th Heaven)
    Brian Presley had a deep passion for acting and a dream to pursue a career as an actor. He felt called by God to start Freedom Films, a film company with a vision to develop movies with a family friendly message. As this mission grew, he soon lost sight of his true purpose and God's calling. He became fixated on the Hollywood spotlight and to focused on things 'of this world'. But soon Brian found himself in a flood of financial problems and while his career began to sink, so did his passion for life. He turned to alcohol and began to distance himself from God. Brian watched everything he had worked so hard for slip through his fingers. He felt alone, lost and hopeless, until he was presented an opportunity by God, to produce and act in an inspiring film called TOUCHBACK . A divinely appointed role that reminded him of his calling and changed his life forever. This unbelievably inspirational, sports-themed, family film, starring Brian Presley and Kurt Russell, tells a story of second chances; something we all need to be reminded of this Easter!

    This week on The Counsel Of Many: A woman wants to know if marrying a Jew is really the end of the world.

    " Do you think there's anything wrong with a Christian marrying a Jew? I've been dating a man for the last two years, whose family is Jewish, and now we're talking about marriage. I'm a Christian and my parents just sat me down last week (now that they realize this is serious) in order to explain to me the ?pitfalls? of being married to someone who isn't a Christian. It's almost as though they feel that this is the beginning of the end or something. I see their point, I really do, that it would be ?easier? to marry someone within your own faith. It's just that my boyfriend has treated me nicer than any Christian I've dated. He respects the fact that I'm a Christian and I have a huge admiration of his Jewish heritage. As a matter of fact, I sort of envy it. I could see there being more of a problem with marrying a Muslim or an atheist or even someone who could care less about spiritual matters. But since I've fallen in love, isn't it better that I've fallen in love with a Jew who loves me for who I am and deeply respects me as a woman? Do you have any advice for me? I honestly don't think that we are going to break up over this, but how would you suggest I handle things with my parents? I don't want to hurt them over this, but right now, me marrying a Jew looks inevitable. Am I doomed?"
