The journey from openly homosexual agnostic drug dealer to Bible-affirming Christian scholar and professor is a long and difficult one, as Dr. Christopher Yuan can attest.  Dr. Yuan’s parents were Chinese expatriates who escaped the cultural revolution by fleeing to Taiwan, and later came to America for higher education.  They lived out the American Dream, achieving financial success and providing a bright future for their children despite having arrived in the US with nothing.  But this dream turned into a nightmare for Christopher, who grew up with no religious influence in his life, was ostracized from other boys for being different, and began to feel same-sex attractions after being exposed to pornography at a young age.

Dr. Yuan tells Kevin about his incredible testimony, which took both him and his mother to rock bottom before God brought them into the light.  In her darkest hour, Christopher’s mother heard God’s voice in the form of a small pamphlet.  Soon Christopher’s father and brother came to know the Lord as well, and after many years of faithful prayer and fasting, so did Christopher himself.  Dr. Yuan’s story goes to show that God’s grace can redeem anyone, even a despairing mother who is contemplating suicide and a prodigal son running as hard as he can in the opposite direction.  Dr. Yuan and his mother co-authored a book about their experiences, called Out of a Far Country: A Gay Son’s Journey to God. A Broken Mother’s Search for Hope.  To learn more about their inspiring journey, visit ChristopherYuan.com.  You can also hear Christopher speak at the Veritas Apologetics Conference at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa in November.

This episode first aired on August 27th, 2016.
