Are people within the LGBT community born like that, in the same way people are born with black skin or blue eyes? Is there a scientific consensus on the issue? What does the Word of God say? What does a new report from John Hopkins University reveal about the popular ‘born this way’ theory?
“I feel as a community, the queers have to stop saying, ‘Please help us. We’re born this way, and we can’t change’ as an argument for legal standing. I don’t think we need that argument, and that argument is going to [hurt us], because now we know that there’s enough data out there, that the other side is aware of as much as we are aware of it.”

Is The Reformation Project, started by Matthew Vines, Biblical? What does the group hope to achieve? A recent talk hosted by The Reformation Project at Renovation Church, Atlanta, called ‘Elevating the Dialogue on LGBT Inclusion in the Church’ was reviewed on tonight’s show. What are the views of Léonce Crump, Jr., senior pastor at Renovation Church (member of Acts 29); Ashley Matthews, Eastside parish pastor at Trinity Anglican Church; and Stan Mitchell, senior pastor at GracePointe Church on LGBT inclusion in the Church? Can practising LGBT people be included lawfully in the Church? Can an LGBT person change and leave behind this identity?
The Anglican Bishop of Grantham, Nicholas Chamberlain, recently revealed that he was in a homosexual relationship. What does this tell us about the Church of England? The current Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, stated that: “I am and have been fully aware of Bishop Nick’s long-term, committed relationship. His appointment as bishop of Grantham was made on the basis of his skills and calling to serve the church in the diocese of Lincoln. He lives within the bishops’ guidelines and his sexuality is completely irrelevant to his office.”
On today’s show we examine the sinister agenda of the LGBT movement, within the professing Church, as it seeks to co-opt the conservative wing of the Church to their apostate position. What role does the so-called “Reformation Project,” started by Matthew Vines, play in all this?
With more and more professing Christian clergy ‘coming out’ as homosexual in the United Methodist denomination, what does this say about the state of their church? Can Christians who truly love the Lord Jesus Christ have different views on issues such as homosexuality, and on the subject of ‘female pastors’? What should you do if your church ordains female preachers and allows homosexuality to remain unchallenged within its communion?
