George Carneal is the author of the book, From Queer to Christ: My Journey Into the Light, was raised by a Southern Baptist minister in the Bible Belt, and for years struggled with his Christian faith and same-sex attraction. After heading to the west coast and living a gay lifestyle for 25 years, God broke through and saved him. Today, George has a powerful testimony of deliverance, but a painful story of years in bondage to sin, loneliness, and severe depression.
George is a frequent speaker at churches and conferences, has worked with pastors struggling with how to address LGBT issues, with parents who are seeking guidance on how to help their LGBT children, as well as LGBT individuals who want out of that life. George has appeared on The Christian Television Network, Stand In The Gap Today, Janet Mefferd Live, CBN, Truths That Transform, and many more.
WE DISCUSS recent surveys showing Christians want (and need!) their pastors to address cultural (“controversial”) and social (moral!) issues from the pulpit on Sundays. We look at another poll showing half of liberals think a business owner should be FIRED for supporting Trump; and we talk about intolerance from the LGBT community toward former gays and lesbians.

This is George’s journey through a queer culture fantasy-land filled with drag queens, drugs, and dangerous encounters before discovering healing, joy and peace in Christ. This true story details his struggles in a religious world at odds with, and often hostile toward, homosexuals.
“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men. 14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; 15 nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, 4 for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. 5 We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
