Minister Forbidden to Share Biblical Truth With Struggling LGBT Teens
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Evangelist Dave Wells… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
A minister in Kentucky has now been told that he cannot minister any more to the juveniles in the detention centers unless he signs a form that says he will not say anything with regards to changing sexual orientation.
Joining me on the Faith and Freedom program is Dave Wells. Dave is a minister and an evangelist in Kentucky who, for a number of years, has also been ministering to young men in the juvenile facilities.
Dave, you’ve had an personal experience in your own life, when you were a young boy you were sexually abused. And so you’ve experienced the trauma of that sexual abuse by another man, and you understand not only the trauma, but how it affects your life. You also understand the forgiveness of Jesus Christ and the power to change.
Dave Wells: Yes, sir, I was abused from about the age of 7 to 10, when I was a little boy. And of course that changes your outlook on everything. You look at everything from a skewed viewpoint and you wonder how God could allow something like that to happen.
But then God saved me at the age of 22, and delivered me from alcohol and everything else that goes along with that….trying to cope with the situations of life.
And the Lord opened up the door for us to minister to these kids, and so we were thankful to do that. Because of the background that I have, I’ve been able to uniquely reach into the lives of those children and understand where they’re coming from, understand the problems they’re having. And then being able to tell them about the changing, saving power of Jesus Christ.
