ESPN’s Chris Broussard on NBA player’s gay lifestyle: ‘Jason Collins is not a Christian’

Broussard

ESPN’s Chris Broussard believes Jason Collins is going against the practice of Christianity by living as a gay man. During a recent episode of “Outside The Lines,” Broussard was asked his thoughts on Jason Collins coming out as an openly gay player.

“Personally, I don’t believe that you can live an openly homosexual lifestyle or an openly, like premarital s-x between heterosexuals,” Broussard said, “If you’re openly living that type of lifestyle, then the Bible says you know them by their fruits. It says that, you know, that’s a sin. If you’re openly living in unrepentant sin, whatever it may be, not just homosexuality, adultery, fornication. Whatever it maybe, I believe that’s walking in open rebellion to God and to Jesus Christ. So I would not characterize that person as a Christian because I don’t think the bible would characterize them as a Christian.”

Broussard is very religious and the founder of K.I.N.G. The organization seeks to empower men through the power of the “Lord Jesus Christ.”

Share your thoughts. Do you think Broussard was incorrect for his comments, or does he have the right to share his opinion?

    Of course he has a right to state his opinion and he has an absolute right to use the bible as his basis for his opinion.

    Since our modern American culture has rejected all morality based on the bible can we say that we are better off as a society?

    If another Adolph Hitler threatened the world would we see men and women willing to lay down their life to defeat evil step forward as did “The greatest generation?”

    Is there a correlation with all the violence in schools and the fact it is illegal to teach the bible, pray or even have a moment of silence?

    We need more men like Mr. Broussard to exercise their right of free speech despite it’s politically incorrect inherently Christian content, at least until it is labeled “hate speech” and criminalized, the next step of the LGBT agenda

    So why do Christians feel the need to tell other Christians if they are wrong? We find that in God’s Word, “whoever knows God listens to us (God’s faithful servants) whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth with the spirit of error.” 1 John 4:6 And the ones speaking are speaking God’s Word not man’s will.

    Sadly when the faithful do speak by the Spirit of truth they are called all sorts of names or told to hush up. But when someone speaks in boldness to their own sinful nature, that is lauded. Proverbs 28:13 “Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper but he who confesses and forsakes them obtains Mercy.” This is God’s Word and in the love of Christ I share it. I share it not to judge as your sin greater than mine but to share God’s call to confession and to share what favor comes with it when we confess our sins in Jesus’ name. I also share what harm comes to those who do not. These are not my words, my actions, or my original will that dictates these things; they are God’s. And for those who say they live for God’s Will, they cannot ignore some of it, and claim only what they want and expect God to be fine with that. For He desires our entire heart and Will to be captive to Him.
