    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    This man is fearless about sharing biblical truth in the face of worldly hostlity to the Word of God.

    The 'charge' against him is that he discriminates against the folks that the bible warns are in sin. His loving concern for all is quite evident - sharing God's word is never discriminatory.

    The fact is that those who accuse him and insist that he looses his career, are themselves discriminating against him for holding biblical views.

    Blessings,

    He seems to have quoted from 1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

    I have heard many people opposing his view on the Media.

    Did he receive support from any Christian leaders or Christians in the public eye? :)

    That seems to be a recurring theme these days. Perhaps what others took for evil is something that God will use for good.

    I have just heard that 'Hillsong Pastor' Brian Houston has spoken out against this rugby player and his 'outdated' 'judgemental' attitudes.

    Do you think what the Rugby Player posted is against the grain even for 'Christians' now?

    This is a sign of the times...

    Sadly not surprising.

    Jesus is the saviour of all, especially those who believe. Some actions are condemned. Some people at the end are condemned. But we need not mention it at sports entertainment events. We should have free speech.

    Some say people should not choose to be homosexual, because it makes them more prone to suicide. Others say they are born that way and need special consideration because they are more likely to suicide. Hate speech could trigger suicide. So free speech is in question.

    It has got to the stage that to quote the scripture is classified as Hate Speech.

    Is this not a sign of the times?

    Is not the church silent on this?

    Blessings,

    It is not fair. Like it is in the USA is good enough, free speech, but not hate speech. Street preachers should be free. Telling souls homosexuality is a sin is not hate speech.
