The Boy Scouts of America was once an organization that sought to instill values into boys that were largely based on the Bible—belief in God, patriotism, helping others, self-discipline, and heterosexual morality.

Today, the Boy Scouts, tellingly renamed “Scouts BSA” after allowing girls into their ranks, has declared bankruptcy. Would that financial bankruptcy were their only problem. Instead “Scouts BSA” has been morally bankrupted as well, when the homosexual movement from within and without forced their perversity on the organization.

Robert Knight, columnist for the Washington Times and an Eagle Scout, wrote about the tragic story of the Boy Scouts this week...

How the tactics that think the Boy Scouts are now aimed at the church as a topic will discuss today right here on the Christian worldview radio program for the mission is to sharpen the biblical worldview of Christian and to share the good news the gospel that all people can be reconciled to God through repentance of sin and faith in who Jesus Christ is what he did. You on the cross. I did a weed in the house to the program or website is the Christian You didn't matter gets my my notes. Your didn't matter that Robert Knight, who recently wrote a column on this is our guest in the program that the Boy Scouts of America was once the organization that sought to instill values into into boys that were largely based on the Bible, but that didn't matter whether it's a belief in God, patriotism, helping others, self-discipline, and heterosexual morality because today what matters about the Boy Scouts, which is been tellingly renamed Scout BSA taking boy out of the name and allowing girls in the ranks they declare bankruptcy. What that financial bankruptcy worker only problem though, instead scout BSA has been morally bankrupted as well. When the homosexual movement from within and without forced their perversity on the organization, Robert Knight, a columnist for the Washington times and an Eagle Scout wrote about the tragic story of the Boy Scouts this week in his column.

The lessons for Christians is that the subversive tactic tactics employed against the Boy Scouts are the same being used against the church. Today the Christian worldview Robert Knight joins us to deep detail how the homosexual movement subverted the Boy Scouts and corporations and is doing the same thing to their ultimate target, which is the church and he will explain what Christians and churches can do to stand firm is get to the first segment interview with Robert Knight. I want to start out by reading the first couple paragraphs of your recent column on the Boy Scouts were you say, as holder of an Eagle Scout badge.

I went to the sadness stage back in 2013 when the Boy Scouts board caved to the LGBT Q lobby well okay I was pretty angry then to watching the saboteurs within and without the organization systematically undermined it in the name of quote tolerance.

It didn't matter that the scouts won all their court battles, including if US Supreme Court to maintain their moral standards.

The saboteurs were intent on ending the scouts common sense X substantially necessary exclusion of boys who sexually desired males in that was only the beginning.

Two years later they open their ranks in 2015 to homosexual leaders during a time when they faced hundreds of sex abuse lawsuits somehow didn't seem to matter that virtually 100% of the abuse cases involved homosexual molestation in January 2017 just give you some history here. The scouts added transgender's and finally dispensing altogether with the original boys to men reason for the scouts they letting girls. 10 months later as of February 2019. As last year. The official name became scouts BSA as if getting rid of quote boy in the title would cover this mess now.

Unsurprisingly, with declining enrollment and steep legal bills. The Boy Scouts of America have declared bankruptcy mission accomplished that Robert is such a sordid tale of what's happened to this once great organization here in America.

Tell us more. Being an Eagle Scout yourself in the past about the history of the Boy Scouts and why this story really matters today. It matters because it's one more institution that the left has either destroyed or taken over and I like what Ann Coulter said about this she wrote a column that dealt with all the lawsuits that were aimed at opening the scouts up to everything from girls to homosexuals to transgender's and she said, quote, why would any liberal want to join an organization that was according to them, sexist, Bible thumping and bigoted. They didn't. The lawsuits were kill shots and I agree completely with that he was sabotaging the scouts scouts have provided an all alternative set of values to that the left offers other progresses in the United States are pushing socialism hard but can't do it if there is a strong independent citizenry with strong families and strong boys who grow into men and take the responsibility seriously. Also, the scouts were in the way so they decided will let's go after the scouts and they couldn't get them to bend in the courts.

Courts all upheld their rights as a private organization even though they hammered at them year after year and cause them to spend millions defending themselves. Still they want all the lawsuits and yet all of a sudden they caved the scout board decided to take a vote at an annual meeting and a clear majority's idea. Let's get rid of the prohibition on boys who have same-sex feelings and that was the beginning of the end for the scouts because being a scout myself I know what it contained, where you let in a boy who desires other boys sexually I mean is going to tent with him. We had that happen to my troop up in the state of Maine when I was a scout they had to very quietly and and kindly they did with compassion, but they said you can't be here. None of the other boys wanted to tent with them because he wanted touch them and you can have that so I can imagine what kids are going through now. I mean a lot of the times we worried about gay, scout leaders, perhaps molesting the boys, which is happened often enough that now bankrupting the scouts.

But what about the boys themselves with peer pressure with the schools pushing this whole LGBT Q agenda and on the same boys who go to the schools and learned that although you know your bigot if you don't at least try some of his behavior going out camping site with your son. This is why membership is down. This is why parents are very leery of the Boy Scouts. At this point and on the good side.

It's why groups like trail life USA have arisen to take the place of the scouts. It's just like the scouting program without the political correctness Robert Knight with us today on the Christian worldview talking about what is happened with the Boy Scouts of America. They gone bankrupt. Now, after years of compromise and attack by the homosexual lobby, and so forth. One. Read another paragraph from your column. We have a link to our website the Christian you say 1972. The Boy Scouts had 6.5 million members.

Now they're down to just over 2 million huge drop. Likewise, in Exodus is underway to trail life USA a Christian version of scouting without the politically correct nonsense. Launched in 2013 by former scout leaders trail life has chapters in 48 States Trl. life works alongside American Heritage girls, which was founded in 1995 by former Girl Scout leader Patty Garibay who opposed the Girl Scouts own plunge into political correctness, among other things, the Girl Scouts dropped God from their oath welcomed transgender's belittled homemaking and hosted Planned Parenthood speakers. My question for you is this Robert. Who are these saboteurs you talked about them being from without and within. So who are the saboteurs in why do they want to integrate homosexuality transgender is him and abortion into Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts what what is the motive behind that because the scouts represent traditional values which stand against what they are trying to transform America into which is a top-down atheistic socialist nation Boy Scouts were very clear that they honored God's and their roles and the have. If you look at the scouts law with all the virtues are they will come out of the Bible being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent. So he wants a scout.

Always a scout factory set I was I was an Eagle Scout one time.

You never lose it actually went to get the badge. It's like a Marine.

You know you're in the Marines. Your Marine years later. Same with Eagle Scouts and the Girl Scouts caved earlier to the political correctness that was invading their ranks. They were invaded basically by liberals who said what we don't want to be so different from society that we will blend in. So let's start giving way with her values first thing that went was God in the Scout oath. They said you can pride any deity you want or non-so they remove the foundation for the Girl Scouts values. If you don't answer to God you can make a values as you go and then the said that leadership while they don't care about it and care about the sexual orientation.

Another word so they could have lesbian leaders as role models and they brought in all kinds of feminist theory in the Girl Scouts and if you look at some of the literature of the Girl Scouts. They do belittled homemaking. They have statements like all women. Once center their lives around their families and and they did cooking and cleaning. Wasn't that silly something like that.

I mean I remember something along those lines, and I thought my goodness there belittling one of the most crucial roles that a girl can grow into, which is taking care of her household the whole socialist enterprise. David is is been on since the French Revolution and basically is anti-family anti-church. It's anti-anything that will produce independent responsible citizens who would resist an ever encroaching state and the Girl Scouts went first. Now the Boy Scouts have followed them. It's a great loss. I applaud the trail life USA and American Heritage girls lay there filling in the gap but the loss of the Boy Scouts in the Girl Scouts as reputable organizations can't be underestimated targeting of the children so that affects that the future generation, just as the public school system is been targeted so much you you can transform the country. That way when you use to gather the hearts of the children of Robert Knight with us today here on the Christian will view you can get on his weekly column distribution list you get it by email every week by just emailing him Robert Knight and the night's spell K and IG HT Robert Knight Another aspect of your your column you wrote about.

You said that with the Boy Scouts in very serious trouble. Now they've gone bankrupt you can hear raised glasses clinking in the gay bars and in the New York Times and the Washington Post newsrooms. These folks claim to want quote inclusion, but it isn't about that. The real point of all the ACLU lawsuits and editorials was to destroy the Boy Scouts traditional moral impact on society.

Now you you talked about that. Robert and really the point of the program is most listeners will have known about what's happened to the Boy Scouts in the Girl Scouts and so forth.

We want to get to today is how these same tactics. The same words being used. You're not diverse enough. You're not inclusive enough. Your bigoted against your homophobic.

How are those types of tactics words leverage is used, to try to undermine what you talk about this traditional moral impact on society. Okay Robert Knight will answer that question after this first break of the day here on the Christian worldview. Many of you wouldn't have heard about the story of the.

The Boy Scouts of course came out recently. They went into bankruptcy. Not a big surprise. Thereafter, what they've been sliding into for the last decade or more. But really the point is to use it as a model and example of bad model bad example of what is now taking place.

The target of the church and is getting the program today may tell you about a book that literally was on my radio studio desk this morning that came in an envelope.

I open it up, I'll tell you about the topic that fits in exactly with what were talking about today a lot more coming up with Robert Knight here on the Christian worldview. After this, I'm David. We is a pain to know that there are people who do not know Jesus is a greater pain to know that oftentimes Jesus and Christianity is been distorted is called conscious thought. I don't think God said said story.separates Christianity every other religion in the world. The American gospel films.

Our topic today here in the program is how the tactics that sank the Boy Scouts are now aimed at the church outside, but this book I just received this goes right in line with that actual title of the program today.

Let's get back to the second segment of the interview with Robert Knight to write an article this week is column was about how what happened to the boy, Boy Scouts, and they went into bankruptcy because of the whole LGBT Q movement but we want to get to today is how these same tactics.

The same words being used. You're not diverse enough. You're not inclusive enough. Your bigoted against your homophobic. How are those types of tactics words leverage is used, to try to undermine what you talk about this traditional moral impact on society or when you change the language you control the debate, which is why they changed abortion Detroit's homosexual to gay the left does this constantly. Another example would be a reparative therapy which is talk counseling for people who don't want homosexual desires and go to a counselor and say well how do I keep these under control or even reverse them.

That was called reparative therapy. Reparative aspect as you recover your God-given sexuality in the left converted that into conversion therapy, which sounds scary evokes thoughts of shock therapy and things like that and course they don't do any of that but it works something like 11 states abandoned conversion therapy. This should go to the Supreme Court. At some point because it denies client self-determination, which is a fundamental of value in our free country you are to be able to get the kind of counseling you want.

Just because the left doesn't like it doesn't mean you should be able to get it and certainly parental rights you're to be able to take your child to a licensed counselor who will compassionately deal with their unwanted sexual feelings about the left to say no you do it are where else will let counselors operate who push kids into homosexuality and transgender is him but never the other way around. Never will they be dissuaded from engaging in that behavior. This is totalitarian in nature and I I've said before, David, maybe even on your program that the end goal of the whole LGBT Q agenda is the criminalization of Christianity.

And I firmly believe that I see that unfolding every day as more of it finds its way into the law which creates a fundamental change in how were treated under our Constitution.

If you recast traditional biblical morality is a form of bigotry that is actionable and bring in all the force of the civil rights apparatus. You're basically criminalizing traditional views about sexuality. It's happening in the workplace. It's happening on college campuses and now the third aimed at the kids so heavily it's really happening big time in the public schools, right down to the kindergarten level. It is Robert Knight with us today in the Christian worldview. Our topic is how the tactics that sank the Boy Scouts are now aimed at the evangelical church in this country will get to that in just a few minutes here. Let's get to some of these tactics and how they are used against corporations. Corporate America. Other organizations from your calm. You say it was sabotage from within that prove most damaging for the Boy Scouts. Some of it coming from people like Robert Gates, Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush and Barack Obama as chief Scout executive. Mr. Gates presided over the surrender in 2013, the Boy Scouts pressure also came from the scouts board members who were top executives at corporations like AT&T and UPS former Exxon Mobil Chairman Rex Childress and who was briefly Donald Trump, Secretary of State, was reportedly instrumental in the policy change we need is a big, big names and big corporations who are making these decisions on the board of the Boy Scouts long ago like henpecked spouses. Many corporate executives begin supporting the left radical sexual agenda at the nagging of their human resource departments. That's where they employ quote diversity specialists with degrees in women's ethnic and LGBT Q studies keep them happy. Or they'll go to the media and call you a big so Robert discuss how these pressure tactics work or applied inside of a corporation and the biggest corporations in the country or other organizations to make them cave-in to homosexual transgender other types of quote diversity demands they can get away with this stuff without the aid and abetting of the media because they will forward an agenda at a particular Corporation make a demand that the corporation is ready to proceed to and then go outside and hold a press conference and then the press will dutifully cast the company as a hotbed of bigots and put pressure on them and call for boycotts and everything else and just harass them and Mel Mel them until they give in and put the thing is, once they give in and say add sexual orientation to the list of antidiscrimination categories that opens the door to all the other demands you know why aren't you having a gay pride day. Why don't you give marital benefits to same-sex partners. There's no end to the demands. What launched the dam breaks and you say that okay there are no moral standards when it comes to sexuality anymore. And we have to accommodate each and every one of them and eventually comes full circle and it causes people who hold traditional values to become targets. Why haven't you mentioned something nice about gay pride week this week. Why didn't you do this or that it's never enough to to be tolerant quickly moves on to demands for acceptance that moves on to demands for activist promotion of the behavior in the movement and finally the last stage is working to get anybody who won't go along with this word that our country is rapidly moving in that direction. Look what's happened to the scouts and the Girl Scouts but also major corporations.

One of the smartest things, the LGBT Q activists ever did was to target corporate America. They didn't through personal departments were you employ people from gay studies programs in section and they basically say look, if you buy our diversity program and force every employee. Through this training we will tell the media that you're such bad guys they do it with the race they do with sex. They do it in numerous ways, but all adds up to a power play that is been remarkably successful.

I'm afraid this is coming right to the doorstep of the church, even the evangelical church which is kind of held out against this kind of pressure is not so much more and unwilling corporate board or leadership structure to Maureen. They are the leadership is right on board with these things that the human resources departments are pushing on quote diversity as well.

They want to signal their virtue there not being pulled, kicking and screaming into all this promotion of what the Bible calls a perversion of God's design for sexuality. A lot of them come out of the Ivy League colleges which are been promoting the whole gay agenda in the abortion agenda. The left-wing agenda for decades and that they're just products of their culture. So, as you say, they're no longer being dragged kicking and screaming they're leading the parade. Yes Robert Knight with us today in the Christian worldview talking about the tactics that sank the Boy Scouts are now aimed at the church. Let's get into that aspect because you do mention that in your most recent column by the way, listeners can get on your column distribution list by going to email you at Robert Knight Knight's spell K and IG HT Robert you say this in your column having whipped the scouts into submission the same folks are now concentrating on Christianity with the same aim destroy the churches or better yet commandeer them to promote sexual anarchy and other leftist aims just as former Mayor Pete Buddha judge who thumps a brave new version of the Bible in which Jesus is a gay activist God is cool with even late-term abortion and everyone who says otherwise isn't a real Christian.

Let's get to the first part of that paragraph first and how these tactics are being aimed at the evangelical church. If you know Buddha judge is much more in the mainline denominations that has been given over to this for decades. But how is this being aimed at the evangelical church. You see, Robert a number of ways there. There is a gay Christian movement that's arisen and it's it's really become quite a force in social media, in particular, there are several so-called gay Christians were saying that God is perfectly fine with this. They were created that way and therefore can't be wrong. It's part of the born gay. Can't change those that has helped propel the whole movement actually within the church. It's especially effective because were told to have compassion toward all people and when they appeal to our compassion they use to Bible verses in particular, their favorites are judge not lest you be judged and let him one who is without sin cast the first stone. You hear this constantly from people who are trying to shake down biblical morality and refashioned into kind of a anything goes as long as you say you love God and love Jesus but it is also invading the institutions.

I was shocked to find out that the national Association of Evangelicals has bought into some of the Marxist rhetoric that that's characteristic of these revolutionaries.

In June 2019, the Southern Baptist convention approved resolution by a strong majority embracing the Marxist concept of critical race okay you listen to the Christian worldview on that topic that Robert was just talking about it three weeks on how critical race theory and intersex malady in issue of sexuality and all that infecting not just secular organizations but Christian parachurch and churches as well is much more to get to today.

The program for stay tuned.

I'm David Wheatley listen to the Christian worldview. Critical race theory, and now we are simply and mythical, to be used as tools not as a worldview not transcended worldview above the authority of Berkshire and we stand by the spring is the Southern Baptist convention biblical orthodoxy over issues of women teaching men homosexuality and critical race theory as a bellwether of what's coming to your church by what standard hundred and 10 minute DVD documentary battle taking place, you can receive the DVD for a donation of any amount that Christian worldview to order that Christian worldview.or or call one 846-2233 or lightbox 401 Excelsior, MN 55331 David Wheatley here to tell you about my boys then story of love, loss and grace. Ben was a yellow lab and inseparable companion stage in my life when I was single, competing in the professional tennis to.

That's one AAA 46 2233 or my boy to think biblically in live accordingly. That is what we strive to do on the Christian worldview radio program as we examine topics week after week, the world of current events going on the culture and of course in matters of faith and the church theology apologetics. That's everything. Thank you for joining us today our topic is how the tactics that sank the Boy Scouts are now aimed at the church. The broader Christian movement, so to speak or she has in the movement, the Christians in general and Robert Knight. Our guest today.

He's a columnist for the Washington times and I would highly recommend you actually get his he can sign up for his weekly column just by getting in this distribution list to send him an email. Robert Knight the and you'll get on his this requested that on his free distribution list.

He sends on every Monday before the break.

There he was talking about how these tactics that think the boys Dr. Scott scouts are now getting into the evangelical church Christian organizations and so forth. And he was in the middle of an answers.

Let's get back to the rest of his answer to that question. But how is this being aimed at the evangelical church. You see, Robert. I was shocked to find out that the national Association of Evangelicals has bought into some of the Marxist rhetoric that that's characteristic of these revolutionaries.

In June 2019, the Southern Baptist convention approved resolution by a strong majority embracing the Marxist concept of critical race and another one intersection malady that these are straight out of the Marxism and critical race theory is that everything is race all differences can be explained by race that the only way we can overcome racial differences is really to place ourselves under all governing force that will wipe out bigotry wherever it finds it and intersection malady says that people are oppressed six ways from Tuesday know whether you're black or you're gay or you're left-handed or they say that it all adds up to an oppressive race and sex so you don't boil it down, and they're basically saying everybody's a victim except white Christian males and so we have to make them of their guilt. We have to get the society woke as they call it everybody's woke to the fact that America is really not the great nation we thought it was.

It's entirely race-based.

It's incurably racist that its founding was in 1619. As the New York Times says in its new program because that's when some slaves were brought to Virginia and they say what's the real founding of America and let's let's look at America through that lens.

Instead of through what the founders envisioned with the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. The sad thing David is the this is being taught the kids and in schools all over America, largely through the Howard Zinn book, which is a People's history of the United States and he was a communist he is full of false scholarship. He trashes people like Christopher Columbus he finds very little good in America and these kids are being raised on the idea that they live in a terrible country that needs radical transformation. And that's how we can explain why these huge numbers of people say they'd vote for socialist candidate in North America is that bad, then we need radical restructuring and what better to do that than socialism, which requires that all that came before it be forgotten and destroyed, so they can create the new socialist man on the ashes of the old society.

What you just described.

You answered my final question by answering how do you explain how Bernie Sanders is someone who raises Fidel Castro for his literacy program and so forth and his incredible history with communism and socialism is not even a Democrat. By the way the Democrats socialist naming part of the Democrat party he's leading by a long shot, and you just described how it happens, you people are brought up in Howard Zinn's book by what were going to a program on that book coming up in the future here and how that book is led to the perception as you just mentioned that America's this terrible racist, misogynistic, oppressive country and so therefore it needs to be completely transform you can see the reality of that like you just mentioned in the popularity of someone like Bernie Sanders I mean it just it's just incredible that someone like that can be given one second of attention in a country that's never been historically in the worldview that he has let me ask you one final question today. Robert is you talk about these tactics that are used against the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, the church general societies schools and so forth. How does a Christian who is working and when these environments are maybe a Christian business owner. How did they resist this. Why aren't Christians able to integrate their values into their business. Whereas these values are pushed on them unless you implement them is or else all other Christians do integrate their values and their business. The best thing to do is to ignore demands like this unless you are under legal obligation, in which case you're in a tough place. It was disheartening to a lot of us when Chick-fil-A which a lot of Christians say is a bastion of resistance against this this whole leftist movement basically caved and started giving money to left-wing organizations, up to and including the Southern poverty Law Center, which is as radical organization as you'll find is anti-Christian and organization. As you can find that it wasn't Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A or or even his son who is now running at Dan Cathy. But there are other people near the top Chick-fil-A with decided well we won't open a lot of liberal jurisdictions and our biblical values are kinda getting in the way so I guess what we need to do is show that were woke to and will start funding the left and that means withdrawing funds from groups like the Salvation Army, which still maintains marriage is the union of a man a woman so a lot of us are very disappointed and hope AAA will rethink this, but it shows you have a multibillion-dollar company. One of the most successful businesses in the United States and even they feel they have to accommodate the activism of the left.

So to think of small businesses trying to stand up against this they should get legal help if they really get stepped on and told to do something totally against their values of alliance defending freedom is there to help the ACL J. Jay Sekulow's group, the Pacific legal Institute, Liberty Counsel, some strong Christian legal organizations that are only too happy to step in and and represent often a pro bono to Christians who find themselves under attack by this this left-wing assault on their values. Rather, we appreciate this this most recent column because, like I mentioned, people know about what happened to the Boy Scouts. It's really a sad tale of now being bankrupt and all the, the, the loss of their original Christian base values into what it is today, but it really I think is representative what's going on more broadly across this country, both in corporations, organizations, and now the attack. Of course, is been going on against the church. So keep up the great work Robert.

We just wish all of God's best in grace to you think you're coming on the Christian worldview today. It's always a pleasure David, thanks for your help get the word out.

Okay, that was Robert Knight everyone, a columnist for the Washington times of the say his email address one more time in case you want to get on his free column distribution list comes on a Monday this Robert Knight is built and I excite Cayenne IG HT Robert so this issue is such a cut and dried issue biblically from a standpoint of homosexuality transgender is in this sort of thing, but it really is a bellwether it's a litmus test of what your view, what you believe about who we believe God is and what you believe about his word and it's it's it's so cut and dried in the Bible that there is no other way to take it homosexuality transgender is him are sinful and wrong. According to Scripture, according to God's word, and so is many many places throughout Scripture that we see this and so your view of this says a lot about what your your view of God is in the Bible.

And this is a frequently visited topic. It's it's like LGBT Q all the time. That's because it's being pushed on society all the time. It impacts Christians, their children, it's every sector of life.

It's a reading times for children drag queen story hour and then the library public library in your town is the ability to conduct your own business. Whether you do weddings or photography or artwork according to your Christian conscience is the renaming of tennis stadiums in Australia market court has spoken out against homosexuality. So therefore the tennis Stadium named after her nostril needs to be changed is the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. As we discussed today is the counseling movement is the military. It's now what we talked about the church. As I mentioned earlier in the program just in getting ready for the program today came into the studio and on my desk was an envelope and get books all the time from publishers seeking to have their authors on the show to be interviewed to create publicity for the book and so I opened the book up and I looked at the title and it said born again. This way coming out, coming to faith in what comes next, born again, this way this book is about being a quote: quote same sex. Same-sex attracted Christian that's their words basically being a have homosexual desires harboring homosexual desires and not seeking to as a believer saying those desires are always wrong. There's desires are always sinful.

Those need to be recognized replace of the truth of Scripture and overcome through the supernatural resources God gives me through his Spirit in the word but now here's the undermining going on that you can be a same-sex attracted can be a homosexual Christian I can be your identity, you can attach a modifier.

Rhonda being a Christian.

This is who I am and it's okay I just need to figure out a way to live this way. Maybe have to be celibate or whatever but I'm still saying I still have homosexual desires. That's what this book is doing. It's this room recognize the names your now Sam all Barry remember Matt name big name in this movement. Rachel Gilson is the author you know Rachel Gilson works for near the press lecture she's got her bio here she serves in the leadership team of theological development and culture for crew campus Crusade for Christ formally that so what you think. This influences guy have on that major Christian campus organization.

Thanks for joining us today on the Christian will view this is the final segment as we discussed how the time tactics that thing Boy Scouts are now aimed at church and I was saying about this book I just received a call born again. This way was I was born a homosexual and that I was born again. And how do I live is a same-sex attracted Christian the title the book was crucifying homosexual desires or overcoming the flesh that be one thing, but it's not. This is about. This is incredibly subversive because the line is so carefully drawn here as a Christian it says in the promo who experiences same-sex attraction is a possible to live a life of faithful in fulfilling Rachel Gilson. The author want to share that it is living as a Christian with same-sex attraction of the right is not with sinful homosexual desires is just this is who I am is not just a case of limping to the finish line. She went on to say was as if I became a Christian. Much to my own surprise. She says it was this is if the son of the gospel had evaporated my atheism and instant as time went on, and one reality remained like a stubborn puddle. I was sexually attracted to women. I still am, unquote she's married to a man today. So what she should be teaching. And I have read the books. I don't want to assume too much year, but this is the same all the all the same endorsers and everyone else in this book Sam L, Barry Rachel Gilson Collin Hansen Karen swallow plot prior all these same folks are the ones who are promoting this same-sex attracted Christian movement and what that what they should be saying is homosexual desires are wrong just like for a heterosexual adulterous desires are wrong.

If I went around saying well you know I married, but Yama and adulterous attracted man not to say that famous sinful man who if those desires come up and that that that lust comes up that that temptation comes up, recognize it, repent of it claim Christ forgiveness for it and through the power of this the Spirit and the word seek and strive to overcome.

Don't accept it as part of all this is just who I am absolutely not. So this is incredibly subversive and it goes exactly to our topic today. How this homosexual movement that sank the Boy Scouts is now really inside the church as well knows that the Republican caucus the other night just wanted to see what was going to be taking place there in this election year and so I went there and someone brought up the issue of a book that she asked the caucus leader about a book that has been integrated into schools is called, it's perfectly normal.

It's perfectly normal. What he think that books about once about the LGBT cute when I get it in everything. It's in schools.

It's in corporations that's in email Christianity. Now it's in the church.

It's everywhere and I asked the person leaving is the why do you think someone would produce a book like that I wasn't a Christian book. Of course, but they're trying to normalize homosexuality for for schoolkids. I asked the person with the leader. Why would someone produce a book like this was the intent of that what is someone trying to do and she really couldn't answer the question she so it should be in school this paragraph I understand that. But why is someone trying to push that morality will the answer is that they sincerely believe they are morally right that they believe the historic prevailing traditional morality of Christians in the Bible that this country was made up of once that's bigoted in its oppressive it's theistic. It's patriarchal favors a man over women. It's sexist. It's homophobic towards homosexuals as racist is trance phobic toward people who are transgender and so they believe that that value system that will be used to worldview issue.

The Christian world of you. This is a worldview issue that that is inherently wrong and needs to be overturned now within that group.

There are some who understand and am in a deeper way that the destruction of biblical marriage. One man one woman the destruction of the nuclear biblical family, a father and mother raising children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord of biblical morality of heterosexual marriage. In this all sex and desire outside of biblical marriage between one man one woman woman is sinful that the that the church they understand the church is necessary to to topple those institutions of marriage, family morality, the church, it's necessary to topple those in order to transform to fundamentally transform America into their humanist godless sexually approved utopia.

That's what must be done that some of them understand that not all of them disbeliever doing the right thing. Others know that they're not only doing the right thing that they must subvert the institutions of society. Worldviews must be changed, whether in the educational system pressure must be applied in the HR departments of corporate America laws must be change the equality act must happen. There must be coerced and the law is inherently coercive. If you don't obey it. It's punishment speech must be suppressed. Dissenters must be punished. Okay, that is the chain that some of them understand, and the go to any length to do that.

These people are are sinners like I am, but thank God that God showed me my sin and help me understand the gospel need to repent and believe in Christ and be transformed rather than going on evil and wickedness that these people are continuing to do right now there is a on this issue. There is a big difference between private behavior in public policy. The Old Testament we see that God established laws for Israel. He regulated the private behavior, not just the public policy, but their private behavior as well. If you are an adult or if you are a homosexual and others you executed and in there with a reason for that was his God did not want Israel to be totally corrupted by sin, which is what takes place when sin spreads like a weed among people. It is corrupt and it kills. Now I'm not saying the US should do that, but it will be interesting what Jesus done what went would does, how he rules when he reigns during his thousand year reign on earth, the millennium now, but when you go from allowing something privately, which I think maybe Christians can take two sides.

I'm your people can in the privacy of their bedroom can live the way they want their accountable to God not the state but when you transition from that to saying that we need to make this public policy, same-sex marriage, these worldview schools and LGBT Q and everything it gets integrated. Everything is no longer don't ask don't tell, that's more likely people on privately. It's legal and moral now, and it must be affirmed or else remember how we were told about, but with same-sex marriage.

This won't affect your marriage, what would you care second affect your marriage, your family will yes I can affect my individual marriage by God's grace with God's help but it affects my marriage or my family in and me in many other ways. Whether it's through the movies that are on television or cartoons. My my son watch her the schools he goes to the library he visits or the corporations we engage with its everywhere, and those who dissent lose their jobs to get ostracized and they get sued.

There's much more to talk about on this topic. Russia had a little more time today, but all this finished by saying this. This is an all-out assault not just on the Boy Scouts, but on all of society and Christians need to take to heart what Paul writes in Ephesians 6, to stand firm to resist to put on the full armor of God to pray at all times and to boldly make known the gospel that is the Christian response to all that is taking place in our society today by God's grace that strive to do just that.
