Being a Christian today in America and in the world is not necessarily an easy thing.  It never has been really as the earliest Christians literally died in many instances for their faith.  Today, at least in America they may not kill you but they will try to crucify your character.  Recently, as a specific example outspoken Christian Tim Tebow and even more outspoken pastor Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church of Dallas were in the news.  Tebow was scheduled to appear and speak at the church.  Due to some "controversial statements" by the pastor, Tebow chose not to appear for the time being.  He wanted to law low and avoid controversy.  I'll talk about a few of the comments that left wing people have clung to as examples of "radical Christianity" and give a biblical Christian opinion on just how radical or not radical those statements are.

 

But in a wider sense it begs this question.  How politically correct should a Christian be?  Should he or she be politically correct at all when teaching or sharing plain truth and quite frankly sharing it boldly is so important at this time.  Do we go along to get along with the world?  Or do we make a stand on truth and let the chips fall where they may?  That's the subject on American Faith Today on Friday, February 22, 2013.
