Part 1 of 2: Honored to be featured on “Politically High-Tech” with Elias 11/24/2022

Note: Interview begins part-way through the recording @ 41:29.

We contrast world cultures and world religions with the timeless, inspired, inerrant, Word of God. We discuss the fall of the American church. Interview includes tips on how to reach out to the LGBTQ with the saving, life-changing full counsel of God.

We discuss biblical gender roles, male headship, women in the pastorate, etc. The interview addresses where LGBTQ outreach intersects traditional men’s ministry. The interview answers questions such as, ‘Does the Holy Spirit ever contradict God’s Word?’ and much more. Praise the Lord!

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

“The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” Titus 2:3-5

Honored to be featured on “Grade A Nation” with Chris Thomas 11/07/2022

This is not a Christian podcast. Chris is a skeptical unbeliever. As is clear from his written interview summary (through the above link), Chris seeks to discredit the witness and thereby the message. We are on opposite sides of a spiritual war, so this is to be expected (1 John 5:19).

The Lord works in mysterious ways. Despite his intentions, Chris had thoroughly researched and asks deeply personal questions, drilling into great subject matter. We discuss a wide range of issues covered in my books and ministry updates. Praise the Lord!

“As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:” Romans 3:10

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” 2 Timothy 3:16

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Peter 1:20-21

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” 2 Corinthians 10:5

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:10

“For there is no respect of persons with God.” Romans 2:11

This interview includes helpful (1) tips for those with LGBTQ loved ones, (2) how to battle LGBTQ indoctrination of our kids, (3) encouragement for handing rejection from the church and (4) encouragement to “stand alone on the Word of God” in these last days of rampant heresy and apostasy.

Honored to be featured on “Unadulterated Heart” 6/27/2022

Duration: 1 hr, 3 mins

Rachel is a Pittsburgher. Until Cambodia, Pittsburgh was my second home (UPitt, PNC). Rachel is candid about her now forgiven past sin, so it makes for a great exchange. We discuss how the Lord humbles us through trials and can use that humility to reach the lost.

We discuss rejection from the church and how contempt and derision are calls to a closer walk with Christ, as chronicled in my forthcoming book, The Church: We Shoot Our Wounded (formerly titled Straight 3: Fight to Follow).

“Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” Luke 6:22 Praise the Lord.

This a gritty preview of the church’s tendency to shoot their wounded, as chronicled in my forthcoming book, Straight 3: Fight to Follow.

“Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.” Matthew 5:11 Praise the Lord.

Honored to be featured on “The Vintage Cafe Podcast”

Part 1 (49 mins), 4/29/2022

Part 2 (42 mins), 5/7/2022

Part 1: In addition to my ex-gay testimony against the backdrop of Scripture, we tackled what temptation is from a Biblical standpoint, the demonic role reversals that are increasingly common and have been normalized in American culture (ex. men striving to be women and vice versa, women usurping the God-given authority of the husband as heads of the home) and what it’s like to reach out the LGBTQ both in Cambodia and in the U.S. Praise the Lord!

Part 2: We delved into the church’s tendency to reject and even shoot her wounded, evangelizing the LGBTQ and a possible workaround for situations where the local church is more of a barrier than a help, the “born this way” theory that has gained wide acceptance and how Satan gains a foothold in youth.

Prior to the interview, I researched Gary’s well-known father. David Wilkerson, author of The Cross and the Switchblade and Teen Challenge founder, previously pastored a church in Philipsburg, PA, next to my hometown of Clearfield (rival high school football team). Gary said he was born in Philipsburg but only lived there for a short time. It’s a small world.

Considering the unpopular nature of a ministry that calls the LGBT to repentance, I was surprised when we got an interview for Cornerstone TV’s Real Life Show. Assured that we should go ahead and come to Pittsburgh at the onset of Covid lockdowns, we drove for three hours and stayed overnight. The episode never aired. We were told it was due to Covid-related changes in programming. Nonetheless, Praise the Lord for the experience.
