Defending Our Faith in a Secular Culture with David Gibbs
Attorney David Gibbs, Jr. joins Ray to talk about the simple prayer he prayed with his wife in 1969 acknowledging his willingness for God to use him to defend believers who were under legal attack for their faith. In the 50 years since, God has used David and his team at Christian Legal Association to help hundreds of thousands of believers around the world stand up for their faith in a culture that is becoming increasingly hostile towards Christianity.
