On tonight’s programme we look at the the rapid decline of the Church of Scotland in recent years. What does it say about a church that accepts homosexual clergy? Can you be a Christian and a homosexual? We also look at the message the Church of Scotland is sending as it prepares to apologise for ‘its long history of discrimination’ against the LGBT community.
Yesterday, on Sunday October 30th, James Martin SJ received an award from a pro-LGBT Roman Catholic group called New Ways Ministry. James Martin is a prominent Jesuit who is the editor-at-large at the Jesuit weekly publication called ‘America.’ What is the significance of this award? Is this official Jesuit policy to support the LGBT community? How do the Jesuits reconcile their actions with Roman Catholic dogma? How should Christians respond Biblically to these issues?
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?
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?
