Today, we start by discussing the importance of Christian parents and coaches in the lives of high school student athletes. We’re joined by a local representative of a Christian organization standing strong in battle for young souls, Jeff Middlestead of Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Hear how coaches and athletics can have a profound affect on young Christians, and why discipleship is vital in the lives of these young people.
We have also seen pressure ratchet up against Christians to be silent and accept the ways of this world. Pressure from the powerful LGBTQ lobby is transforming how church is conducted in our nation and around the world. First it was organizations like the Boy and Girl Scouts; then the YMCA and YWCA, caving to political pressure and the almighty dollar. And now we are seeing professing Christian Churches cave in and justify the LGBTQ movement, in some instances going as far as using the Bible out of context to justify their sinful lifestyles.
We discuss the Church of Sweden and the Mormon Church caving to the powerful LGBTQ lobby.
And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. 6 But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ 7 ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 8 and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” Mark 10:5-9
