This is an incredible story about Tony Miano's recent persecution by British law enforcement. The theme that homosexuality will continue to be the catalyst of an increase in Christian persecution in the West seems self-evident at this point. The Church must do more to prepare the body to respond, to give a defense, an apologetic for the exclusive claims of the Christian worldview. We must be busy proclaiming, defending, and refuting any view that is contrary to the teachings of Christ. In addition, we must be willing to invest the time and energy necessary to ensure that we are providing the very best proclamation, defense, and refutation that our personal gifts, talents, and skills will permit. In other words, Church, let us exercise diligence in the acquisition and application of these critical skills for the sake of the gospel!
