Eye-opening for straight Christians

Richard and his fellow hosts podcast from between a rock and a hard place.

On the one hand, they have committed themselves to orthodox Christian teaching on sexual issues. Many within the church like to pretend that they do not struggle with sexual immorality, but for people like Richard who have same-sex attraction, Christian culture does not look the other way on their struggle like they tend to look the other way on serial divorce or even porn addiction. Therefore, guys like Richard feel especially judged.

On the other hand, their commitment to orthodox Christian living puts them at odds with popular society - a society which looks at people like Richard with either hate or belittling sympathy. They either hate him because he stands in defiance of the "born this way" and "all love is love" philosophies that the LGBTQ+ community has mainstreamed or they treat him with belittling sympathy by assuming he holds his belief out of shame, not out of a commitment to a God whose moral order Richard deeply believes is good and just.

From their vantage point between the rock and the hard place, Richard and his fellow hosts speak winsomly, honestly, and clearly about the cross they bear. This podcast is full of great insights for fellow Christians who want to know how they can stand firm on the teachings of scripture while also helping their brothers and sisters in Christ by bearing their burdens. I was especially helped by episode 4.

Great work, guys! Keep it up!
