Honored to be featured on “Cool Explorations… in God’s Word” 7/20/2022 (Canada)
Duration 1 hr, 7 mins
Tony and I discuss content of all three books in the Straight series, including The Church: We Shoot Our Wounded. In keeping with the forthcoming book’s uncomfortable content, we discuss what the Lord is teaching through trials (e.g. marriage, church rejection).
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.
“These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” Acts 17:11
“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 Praise the Lord.

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.
Honored to be featured on “The Author’s Spot” 6/24/2022
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.
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.

Honored to be interviewed by Gary Wilkerson 02/03/2022
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.
We covered ex-gay testimony, LGBTQ evangelism and Cambodia missions. Praise the Lord!

Dad & Mom testify that they went to war against Satan (Eph 6:12; 1 Pet 5:8; Rev 12:9-11) for their son in prayer and fasting and refused to budge on difficult Bible truth (2 Tim 4:3-5; Gal 1:10). The Lord came through at the 11th hour when all hope seemed lost. Praise the Lord!

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.
Many Christian families are impacted by homosexuality and gender confusion. Below is an example of how we serve churches. Song begins at 7:00, testimony @ 15:00. Praise the Lord!
