Is there some tension in the family?



Whatís coming up? Letís plunge into the Deeper Waters and find out.

Happy families are all alike, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. Many families will not put their dysfunction out there for the world to see. If you post on Facebook, very rarely will you see something like, ďWife and I got into an awful fight over how to do the laundry and we ended up yelling at each other for an hour.Ē

The LGBT community might look happy on the outside. We just want to get along. This is a group all about love and tolerance. Right? Maybe not. Maybe thereís a lot of chaos going on in this family as well. What if they canít all just get along?

My guest this Saturday has done a lot of looking into this community. Things are not as they seem. The feminist movement already doesnít like whatís happening with transgenderism which puts a lot of tension between the L and the T. The B movement isnít going so well with that either since that assumes that there are only two genders.

Okay. So the LGBT community isnít getting along with itself. What does that have to do with us? For one thing, if this is accurate, this can show us the path we could be going on. What if we Christians are right and this is a war against reality? What if the tensions underlie a much deeper issue? What if issues of sexuality have to do with more than just whoever you sleep with?

To discuss this, Iím bringing on someone who has researched this movement and has the knowledge about whatís going on. He came highly recommended by Dr. J of the Ruth Institute. Heís a writer for the Christian Post and his name is Brandon Showalter.

So who is he?

Brandon Showalter is a 2007 graduate of Bridgewater College of Virginia. He earned a BA (cum laude) in International Studies and Spanish and was a fellow the Flory Honors program, studying abroad at the University of Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain in 2005. He is also a fellow of the John Jay Institute for Faith, Society, and Law.

Since 2016 he has been a journalist with The Christian Post covering a wide range of topics. His reporting has been cited in the US State Departmentís 2017 International Religious Freedom report and in the 2018 book ďBraving the Future: Christian Faith in a World of Limitless Tech.Ē Earlier this year, the Evangelical Press Association awarded him and one of his colleagues first place for best Article series. In late October 2017 he traveled to Germany to report on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.

Tomorrow then, thatís what weíll be talking about. We are working on updating the shows and getting them to you. I hope to be fully caught up before too long.

In Christ,
