Our Latest Podcast
Racism and Critical Race Theory with Interview Guests Monique Duson and Krista Bontrager
In Episode 3 of our Christians in a Cancel Culture podcast, we’ll talk with Monique Duson and Krista Bontrager, founders of the Center for Biblical Unity, about the VERY hard to talk about subject of racism, and the growing controversy over Critical Race Theory. These two ladies will share with us their journey together – one a white Christian Apologist, the other an African American Missionary – and how the discussions and tensions that were a part of that journey led them to develop a ministry helping Christians hold to a truly Biblical world-view of social justice and the sin of racism, while refuting the errors of the Critical Race Theory.

Our Latest ‘Sound Doctrine Bites’
“Should I Call You Up or Call You Out?”
When somebody says something you don’t like, or disagree with, or find downright offensive, is your first response to jump on social media and call him out?
There’s a place for confrontation, and a Biblical way to confront when necessary. In this episode we look at what scripture has to say about holding our peace, speaking in private, or making a more public statement. In this age of social media we surely need to be careful without being timid, so let’s look at how to do just that. Click HERE to view.

What’s Coming Up
I’m Guest Speaking at Calvary Chapel Rialto This Sunday
I am so looking forward to speaking this coming Sunday October 17 at Calvary Chapel Rialto. Services are at 8:30 and 10:30, and I’ll be talking about how Christians in a Cancel Culture can respond intelligently and Biblically when the culture tries to silence us. If you’re in the San Bernardino area of Southern California this Sunday morning, it would be great to see you there! Be sure to stop me and say “hi” if you come.
What’s Going On
I Needed to Talk About This
Yesterday (October 11) was National Coming Out Day, a nationally recognized remembrance of the 1988 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. Since that event in 1988, this day has been designated as a day when anyone who is homosexual needs to make that an open declaration, and those who are not need to offer their affirmation.
I needed to talk about this, and about my own “coming out” in a brief video I recorded and posted titled Coming Out All The Way. Click HERE to view this 5-minute personal message from me, and let me know what you think of it, OK?
We’re Glad We Heard From You!
Each week we’ll share with you some of the feedback we’ve gotten from you and other friends of this ministry. Last week this came in as a response to an online seminar I had just done:
“The comment you made about your life in changing was not about seeking change,it was being obedient. All my life I’ve been seeking change instead of obedience, so that resonated with me today and rang a major bell I thank you for that, and I thank you for being a blessing and encouragement I love you buddy.”
But everyone doesn’t feel the same. This came in last week as well:
” Joe, why don’t you just kill yourself? The world would be so much better off without your _________ hate and your _________ stupidity. Seriously, please kill yourself.”
Obviously, you can’t win ’em all. Love me or hate me, I still thank you for taking the time to write.Prayer NeedIn I Corinthians 16:9, Paul asked the Corinthians to pray for him, adding: “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries.”
How beautifully he put that! Please pray that God will continue to protect the work He has commissioned us to do, and to keep us obedient in all aspects of this work, so that we honor Him not only with WHAT we do, but also with the WAY we do it.
1. We’ll have the pleasure of flying into Florida at the end of the month to participate in the Freedom March, where I will be one of several scheduled speakers who will testify to the transforming grace of God in our lives. Your support will help cover our flight expenses and lost income as we are on the road for that week.
2. In these times of job stress and uncertainty, many people come to us for help, unable to pay for what they need. We turn no one away for lack of funds. Your support will help us keep our doors open so we can serve freely and meet our monthly overhead.
3. The weekly planning, recording, and editing of our Christians in a Cancel Culture podcast and Sound Doctrine Bites Facebook Live meeting require tremendous amounts of time and expense. Your support will enable us to continue producing these weekly lessons and develop more online materials to equip believers to address critical issues from a Biblical world view.
