John Stonestreet and Warren Cole Smith discuss the welcome decision by the United Methodists at their special session to uphold biblical teaching and discipline on human sexuality. The principled stand taken by delegates from around the world sent a clear message: The narrative of “cultural inevitability” concerning LGBT theology is a false narrative.

Also on this episode: Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s testimony before Congress; the Supreme Court hears oral arguments in the so-called Peace Cross case; new rules by the Trump Administration deny certain funds to Planned Parenthood (once again showing that elections do matter); and Lesbian tennis superstar Martina Navratilova catches flak for insisting that it’s insanity for biological men who claim to be women to compete in sporting events with biological women.
