Living Stones Leaders to Trans Community — you need to “faithfully” live out birth sex gender roles

A New Kind of Apologist by Sean McDowell

Book Review: A New Kind of Apologist but Lesser Truth with Little Compassion

I wanted to be encouraged by the chapters on gay and transgender issues in Sean McDowell’s A New Kind of Apologist (Harvest House, 2016) in which McDowell acted in the role as editor over 27 authors with “a new approach to apologetics.” (Apologetics is reasoned arguments used to establish and defend the Christian faith.) [ORIGINAL […]

A Visit with Former Religious Right Leader Elaine White
