Caller pleads with Christians not to use scripture to hurt others

Caller Percy made an appeal on the Eusebius Mckaiser Show open line that Christians must take a strong stance against bigotry on themselves.

He says his actions towards his wife are so hurtful and he cannot justify it with the bible.

Percy says there is nothing in the Christian text to justify his actions.

I want to speak as a Christian apologist and a recovering misogynist. I was with a beautiful woman whose life and sexual exposure was too much for me.

Percy, Caller

I said pretty horrible things and, in the aftermath, I am realising there is nothing in the biblical text that supported my toxic emotions and my bigotry.

Percy, Caller

The harm of self-righteousness, the harm of using words that are aligned to scripture to try and beat down people because they practise a sexual life that you don't approve of doesn't seem to coincide with the person of Christ.

Percy, Caller
