A former homosexual shares incredible testimony - Becket Cook’s passion that the church speak the truth

January 21, 2020

Guest host Adam McManus chats with Becket Cook, a former homosexual, about his life story encapsulated in his book entitled “A Change of Affection: A Gay Man’s Incredible Story of Redemption.”

Brett McCracken, of the Gospel Coalition, wrote, “Ten years ago, Becket Cook was a [homosexual] man in Hollywood who had achieved great success as a set designer in the fashion industry. He worked with stars and supermodels, from Natalie Portman to Claudia Schiffer, traveling the world to design photo shoots for the likes of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. He attended award shows and parties at the homes of Paris Hilton and Prince. He spent summers swimming in Drew Barrymore’s pool. A decade later, Cook has moved on from that life—and he doesn’t miss it.

“What changed for Cook? He met Jesus. On a momentous day in September 2009, while drinking coffee with a friend at Intelligentsia in L.A.’s Silver Lake neighborhood. Cook started chatting with a group of young people sitting at a nearby table—physical Bibles opened in front of them. They were from a church called Reality L.A.”

Listen to the incredible testimony of how God saved Becket’s soul and empowered him to walk away from homosexuality. Plus, learn about whether there is such a thing as a “homosexual Christian”, why homosexuals really march in “pride” parades, and how you can reach out to the homosexuals in your life with the love and truth of Jesus Christ.

A graduate of Talbot School of Theology, Becket speaks around the country on the importance of churches and Christians addressing this inescapable cultural issue from a Biblical perspective. You can book him at

Taking the World for Jesus
This is the retelling of the most exciting story in all of human history. Something truly remarkable occurred when Jesus Christ rose from the dead and gave His disciples a great commission. The world would never be the same again. Kevin Swanson takes the reader through the 2,000 year worldwide saga of this epochal mission to the world. From Judea to Rome, Ireland, Denmark, China, Japan, Uganda, New Zealand, and to the uttermost parts of the earth, the light of Christ shines into the darkness, transforming every nation throughout the centuries.


Guest host Adam McManus chats with Brad Dacus, President of the Pacific Justice Institute, a non-profit Christian legal defense organization, about three recent religious liberty cases. Pastor Afshin Yaghtin, who objected to a Drag Queen Story Hour which took place in a Spokane, Washington public library, was arrested for merely walking into the venue with his Bible. When the police officer saw his Bible and asked the pastor whether he agreed or disagreed with the drag queens, Pastor Yaghtin explained that he disagreed with them. At that point, he was put in the back of a police car for three HOURS, brought to the jail and booked on creating a disturbance. Secondly, Dacus will discuss the case of a teenage girl who selected the Christmas hymn “Joy to the World” to play on the piano at a charter school-sponsored Christmas recital at a nursing home. The school prohibited her from doing so, claiming that it would imply their endorsement of a Christian message. And thirdly, Dacus will cite the case of a public school telling a piano teacher, whose piano manual included “Amazing Grace” and “When the Saints Come Marching In”, that she would have to either cover up those two hymns or rip the pages out altogether. Finally, Brad Dacus expresses his support for President Trump’s January 16th announcement through the Department of Education in which he affirmed the right of students to pray. President Trump said, “Our Founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful, prosperous, and virtuous society than the right to follow one’s religious convictions.” And he expressed his delight that President Trump has appointed 187 consitutionalists in the judicial system -- including Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. This program includes: 1. The World View in Five Minutes with Adam McManus (Trump: Students, teachers have right to pray at school, VA gun rights feud, Mexico blocks 2,000 Guatemalan migrants) 2.

Guest host Adam McManus talks with Kevin Swanson and Pastor Norris Bain of Tabernacle Baptist Church in the Bahamas about the week-long effort that the Generations team of 12 volunteers are a part of as they replace dry wall and patch the roofs of Freeport Gospel Chapel and Tabernacle Baptist. Pastor Bain said, “Like 9/11 changed the United States forever, Hurricane Dorian changed the Bahamas forever.” Their church, located 15 miles inland from the Atlantic coast, was soaked by 5 feet of water, requiring that they gut everything, replace all the electrical outlets, drywall, furniture, and computers. The damage will cost $250,000. Plus, the hurricane dropped five 40-foot-long boats in their neighborhood. Thanks to the funding of 150,000 pounds of dry wall and roofing materials from Generations listeners and the volunteer labor of Kevin’s team, the Bahamian church is receiving desperately needed help. Pastor Bain said, “A thousand tongues could not say thank you enough to Generations for what they are doing here on the island of Grand Bahama. There is not enough paper for us to write ‘thank you’ to this ministry for what they have done and how they are impacting our church. It’s just unbelievable! We are forever grateful.” Kevin said, “Everyone on our team would say this is one of the best experiences of our lives. If you are looking for a nation in crisis, if you’re looking for a church that needs help, this would be one of the best opportunities in a lifetime!” If you can find a roofing expert or general contractor and a dry wall expert, and want to put a team of 6-12 people together from your church or family who will work 8 hours a day for a week or so, email The local church will provide the transportation, housing, and meals during your stay. The cost of a plane ticket from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the Bahamas, 60 miles off shore, is $250. Come during the months of January, February and March before the temperatures become prohibitively hot. Plus, if you can’t take time to volunteer to rebuild Bahamian churches, then help us raise $100,000 by February 28th to pay for tax-free building supplies at wholesale cost on-line at Select “Support International Outreach Ministry” in the drop-down window.

Guest host Adam McManus chats with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, the host of Revive Our Hearts heard on 700 Christian radio stations and the author of 24 books with 4 million copies in print, including Lies Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free, Seeking Him, and Adorned: Living Out the Beauty of the Gospel Together. She shares the keys to personal revival. They include meditative time in the Word of God, reading Christian biographies, choosing forgiveness and gratitude, and a willingness to be a mentor to the younger and a student who listens to the wiser. If more Christians would implement those disciplines, we would see revival catch fire in our families, cities, and the nation.

How do Christians handle the world of social media? How important is our privacy? Are there potentially dangerous consequences to major powers knowing everything there is to know about us? Do we have anything to hide? We need to be as wise as serpents and harmless as doves when it comes to these things, and use much discernment. Facebook has caused countless problems in the lives of families and churches, although there may be a few useful ways to utilize it. We discuss the positives and negatives of it all on this edition of the program.

The most recent report indicates that now 37% of Planned Parenthood's budget comes from state and federal funding, and they are getting more opportunities than ever to kill babies. It seems that many today are pragmatic, having compromised on the principle of God's creation of life in the womb, and the guilt of our sin and selfishness is everywhere. However, we come back to blood of Christ that heals and cleanses us from all sin, and encourage the taking up of our cross in joyful service to Him.

A battle is heating up. Will 2020 be a year that evangelicals split apart on the right things or the wrong things? Will evangelicalism split down the middle on Donald Trump and Immigration policy? Or will evangelicalism split right down the middle on things like the Definition of Sin, the Law of God, the Power of the Gospel to transform lives and to provide a new identity and a new orientation in Christ? Thoughtful Christians will want to be careful not to split apart the body on the gnats, on questionable issues, or on third-level applications. Here are some principles to consider as we approach the 2020 elections.

The second largest protestant denomination in America has fairly collapsed by a rejection of the Gospel. They could not believe that the Gospel could save people from their sins. This apostasy is the most indescribably shameful, wicked, and conspicuously evil in the history of the Christian church. But why did the conservatives have to leave, if they were winning every vote in the assembly? Why are the conservatives always pushed out?

The fires in Australia are another critical reminder that the fear of God is the most important lesson of all. Modern man finds the sovereign hand of God over the fires and the floods as utterly abhorrent. . .for several reasons. If there is a god, in their view He must be nice, because we’re all so nice, and all. . . If these nations do not learn something of the fear of God, what will happen to them?

Here is one of the most shocking exposes on the cultural revolution, led mainly by the entertainment industry and Hollywood in particular. Eric Holmberg illustrates the incredible power of Hollywood to lead a nation to cultural degradation and ruin. Always staying a little ahead of the immorality curve, sexuality on the movie screen moved from married people sleeping in separate beds to the ultimate sexual degradation. What will the future hold for entertainment?  Will this take us back to the last days of Pompeii, and Rome?

Are we supposed to be high art snobs when it comes to music? Or should we reject the high art for the more humble folk art? What are the basic principles relating to music, and that which is used in the church? Douglas Bond brings a thoughtful perspective on a controversial subject on this edition of Generations.
