Bring It On-Line: - October 11, 2016

My son is a 24-year-old Christian. He just told me that his college art class was shown pictures of gay couples in long-term relationships. What do you think his course of action should be? Am I still a slave to sin? Read Transcript

Well, it's time to bring it on with the email questions

that you all have sent in.

And Pat, this first one comes from Charmaine who says,

"my son is a 24-year-old Christian.

He just told me that his college art class

was showing pictures of gay couples

in long-term relationships.

My son has to write a report on this.

He's shocked and all he could say is, what?

I was wondering if he could do something

to protect his rights.

He shouldn't have to go to school and have to watch that.

What do you think his course of action should be?"

That's tough.

You know, in the old days, you'd see immediately

they go to court and say that his rights were

being taken away from him.

Unfortunately, the court has now said

that homosexual rights are a constitutionally protected


So what's he going to do?

I'm afraid that what he's going to have to do,

he could write a report saying that this wasn't art

and expressing the fact that why it wasn't good.

And I think that would be the way to go, but he's in a bind.

I mean, we're looking in a culture

that is just going to pot.

And it has given itself over to bizarre types of sexuality.

And it-- it isn't that people didn't practice these things

throughout history, it's just that they--

they didn't get a constitutional sanction.

I mean, 100 years ago, this would have been unthinkable.

So what does your son do?

I really don't think he could win the law case.

He could drop out of the art class,

but he wants to be an artist.

And that's what they are imposing upon him.

I really-- you ask me, what would I do?

I think that's the best way to do it is to see those pictures

and criticize why they aren't any good

and why they're not good art.

And if he's good enough at it, he might get a good grade.

You know, he might not be getting an art degree.

Because if you're at a liberal arts college,

you have to take an art class anyway.

So I mean, you know-- find another--

But you're exposed to these things.

Look at Mablethorpe.

I mean, all that awful stuff, and they were putting it

in museums with taxpayer money.

I mean, it was just terrible.

But that's the way they were doing it.

This is Michelle, who says, "I feel Jesus in my heart.

I know He watches over me.

I feel His love, but I still sin even though I don't want to.

Am I still a slave to sin?"

Well, the Bible says he that is born of God

does not continuously sin.

Of course you will sin.

Of course you will have temptation.

Of course you will fall.

You know, John Wesley said that there

isn't a day that goes by that I don't

plead the blood of Christ.

We need the blood of Christ.

And we walk in the light, as he is in the light.

We have fellowship with one another,

and the blood of Christ continuously

cleanses us from all sin.

So you are not going to be free from sin

until the day you die and you become

transported into a new world.

So we are in the flesh, and the flesh

is always warring against us.

And what we need to do is to put to death

the deeds of the flesh, and that we might live for the Lord.

And that's the process of sanctification.

So as you walk down the line, you

will get closer and closer to Jesus.

That's their goal.

Is that all?

I think that's all the time we have for now.

Well folks, thank you so much for being with us.

I hope I didn't give you a downer today.

I was just-- we've got to face the world that's there.

Well, I think maybe the question to be asked

is how should we then live with the rest of this.

Well, we're going to win.

I want to say that, just because I'm an eternal optimist.

In Jesus Christ, we win.

Well, we leave you today with a power minute from Jeremiah.

Here's the winner. "Call unto me,

and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things,

which you do not know."
