The DVD shows a lecture that Todd Friel of Wretched Radio delivered at AIG’s 2013 Mega Conference, in which he gave the message that while “homosexuals are victoriously waving the rainbow flag,” it is now “time to raise the Christian flag.”
For years, Christians have been waving the American flag. Today, homosexuals are victoriously waving the rainbow flag. Some would suggest it is time for us to raise the white flag. Perhaps there is a better, more biblical option.
Satan doesn’t care if America endorses heterosexual or homosexual marriage, as long as people go to hell. He knows that it doesn’t matter if a nation is moral, as long as people die in their sins.
A good general who suffers defeat does not continue with the same strategy; he wisely assesses the situation and formulates a different plan. It is time for Christians to be wise and reconsider our battle plan: Has our current strategy been working? What does the Bible say our assignment is? Have we been engaged in the right battle?
Rather than raising the white flag, perhaps it is time to raise the Christian flag. While political engagement is important, we are commanded to evangelize and train, not simply win a campaign. Todd Friel challenges viewers to reconsider how we discuss homosexuality at church, how we respond to a child who “comes out,” and how we talk about gay people in the public realm.
