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
Percy (caller) "I am a recovering misogynist and caused harm to my ex, Lerato, including the harm of words I used despite being a Christian. I acted with bigotry against my wife. I cannot defend it with Christian text. My anger came from elsewhere and I targeted her." @Radio702— Eusebius McKaiser (@Eusebius) May 17, 2019
How beautiful is your caller Percy? He had what Hillary Clinton refers to as a "come to Jesus" experience. That's what we all need and the work continues! We honour you Percy. #OpenLine @Eusebius @Radio702— Doreen Morris (@DoreenMorris) May 17, 2019
This clip totally made my morning on @Radio702 after a rough start with the first caller. @Eusebius your breaking down of the arguments was amazing as always, but Percy stole the show with his honest and candid reflections, faith in humanity restored! #IDAHOBIT🏳️🌈 https://t.co/eJaD9eOtRg— Misha Plagis (@MPlagis) May 17, 2019
Ustrong Sabie! I was muffling n whimpering, after it all, I was drenched in tears n snort. Percy is phenomenal. RT @DidintleLetlape: Makes me think of the saying “ If i didn’t know Christians , I would be a Christian.” I can relate to this 😣 https://t.co/4VFkSNRm2x— heylooktheresngoni (@ngonimwanza) May 17, 2019
