Interview with Soong-Chan Rah

Here is an interview with Soong-Chan Rah that I did while speaking at Cornerstone Festival in July. As always, I ask two questions:

1. As a representative of the Christian community, what do you want to say to gays and lesbians.

2. As a representative of the Christian community, what do you want to say to Christians about gays and lesbians.

Also, for a fun other point of view for this interview, check this out. Soong-Chan’s people were taping me, taping him.


Here are Soong-Chan’s blog, Twitter, Facebook and his book, The Next Evangelicalism (which if you like your normal Western Christianity, don’t read it because it will tear your understanding of true Gospel to pieces. My belief is that every Christian professing their faith who actually wants to live authentically needs to read this book.)

Much love.
