#125 Biblical Sexuality, CCM Artists, and Our Public Witness, with Becket Cook
Contemporary Christian Music has grown into a multi-million dollar industry in which the waters have become murky on what individual CCM artists believe. Public stories of deconstruction, and several CCM artists speaking out in favor of redefining the historic Christian ethic on sexuality and gender have left many CCM fans confused.
In this livestream, Becket Cook will join me to share his story of being a gay man with a successful career as a set designer in Hollywood. By all appearances, he was living the dream. He was designing photo shoots for supermodels and hanging out with celebrities. But after experiencing the emptiness of that life, he surrendered to Jesus and trusted him for salvation. He will share what it has been like to trade that old life for a new life in Christ.
Together, we will speak to issues surrounding biblical sexuality, and comment on the confusion we are seeing in the CCM industry.
