Guest: Greg Gilbert, Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church

I am amazed that you are so quickly deserting Him who called you by the grace of Christ, for a different gospel; which is really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ.  Galatians 1:6-7

Consider for a moment that a relatively unknown 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana is running third in the Democrat race for president behind nationally-known candidates Joe Biden (former Vice President) and Bernie Sanders (current U.S. Senator).

So what has made this young man so attractive to voters, above far more prominent candidates such as Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, and others?

Prominent liberal writer Andrew Sullivan already sought to answer the question in a New York Magazine article titled, “Is Pete Buttigieg a Transformational Candidate?

Buttigieg certainly has a rare resume—Harvard graduate, Rhodes Scholar with honors from Oxford, U.S. Navy veteran, mayor of South Bend at age 29.

He professes to be a Christian and speaks regularly of his “progressive” faith.  He is also “married” … to a man.  As for his family background, the Washington Examiner reports that Buttigieg’s father was a Marxist professor at Notre Dame.

Taken all together, one might ask, “Is Mayor Pete Buttigieg a reflection of the changing worldview of our country?”

Greg Gilbert, senior pastor of Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, KY, will join us  to discuss this, along with the political divide, “progressive” interpretation of Scripture, and the face-off between religious rights vs. homosexual/transgender demands.
