Are Christians Who Hold Traditional Beliefs Unwelcome To Work At HGTV? HGTV Yanks The Show After Activists Complain About The Beliefs Of Christian Co-Stars the Benham Brothers. Here is what led to the show’s cancellation– remarks by David Benham’s on September 6, 2012 during the Janet Mefferd Show:
“…if 87 percent of Americans are Christians and yet we have abortion on demand; we have no-fault divorce; we have pornography and perversion; we have homosexuality and an agenda that’s attacking the nation; we have adultery; we have all of these things, I mean, we even have allowed demonic ideologies to take our universities and our public school systems while the church sits silent and just builds big churches.”
“There is an agenda in America that seeks to silence people who disagree with it. Christian beliefs are especially targeted. It begins with Christians.” David Benham on the O’Reilly Factor.
Gay activism is what silenced these Christian brothers. These activists want to silence any Christians who oppose them. The radical left wants to shut down anyone with whom they disagree.
Does this infer that gay activists are stronger than the church? Well, yes, right now, given the fact that the Christian Church seems to be in retreat and is not being the “salt” that she should be. The church however, if she did God’s will and became active in our culture would once again pave the way for decent family values, integrity and ethics. I do not see the courageous leaders to pave the way on the horizon. Hopefully God will raise up leaders who can stand in the gap. A great vacuum seems to have been left after the passing of two spiritual giants who spent there entire careers challenging our culture based on the Word of God:
1) Jerry Falwell– Pastor of Thomas Road Baptist Church and president/founder of Liberty University, both in Lynchburg, Virginia. 2) Dr. D. James Kennedy– Pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Pray for the effectiveness of the church in this sin sick nation. Most people are lost and have no idea that we are ripe for judgment. Pastor Steve
