The battle over the constitutionality of Roe v. Wade may be over, but now a bigger fight lies ahead. For over half a century, pro-life advocates have fought to protect the sanctity of human life. Now that the decision the pro-life community has been waiting and praying for has finally become a reality, a question remains: Now what? How do we continue to stand for life for everyone who bears the image of God—from womb to tomb? And if abortion disproportionately impacts the poor and the marginalized, specifically Black Americans, why should we seize this new opportunity to make right what has gone terribly wrong? Join us as our guest leads us into a new understanding of pro-life advocacy and shows how we can move past political debate and culture wars. Learn how to carve a new path forward that promotes life by committing to human flourishing and holistic justice.
Today our guest will issue a passionate call to hold the front line of holiness concerning true and lasting freedom in Christ. His calling is to, minister and guide "ex-gay" ministries and those offering pastoral care to really help people overcome homosexuality. He will offer clear evidence that former gays and lesbians are finding lasting freedom from a life defined by "gay" identity fallacies. Join us to discover deceptive messages that lower the bar of biblical standards and hinder freedom, find out what works and what doesn’t in "ex-gay" ministry and learn why some fail and go back into darkness. Don’t miss this timely and biblically based-conversation.
