Bible-Based Alternative to Boy Scouts Launches After Policy Change for Gay Scouts

Bible - Scripture

 

PNP comment: I’ve been waiting for someone to provide the alternative to Boy Scouts. I have been involved with Cub Scouts for many years, serving as Cub Master twice. But I was quite sad, when the Boy Scouts caved to the politics, liberal and court threats and actions. And it really isn’t about gay rights. It is about standing up for and keeping Christian principles and morals. Straight teenaged boys are expected to have morals  — and to make things equal — gay teens boys should maintain the same morals.  They are expected to refrain from sex! — Editor Liz Bowen

With the new year came a new group for youth, based on Christian principles, as a response to the Boy Scouts of America’s decision to allow gay scouts. Trail Life USA formally began operating Jan. 1.

Bible Based Alternative to Boy Scouts Launches After Policy Change for Gay Scouts

Former Boy Scout and Scoutmaster Ron Orr stands outside his home in North Richland Hills, Texas on Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013. Orr, a business consultant, is signing up local units for a new conservative alternative to the Boy Scouts of America called Trail Life USA, after the BSA, in the most contentious change of membership policy in their 103-year history, opened their ranks to openly gay boys. Orr is part of a family that has four generations of Eagle Scouts. His older son recently earned his Eagle rank and his younger son was on the verge of doing likewise. But Orr said he could not stand by after the policy change. (AP/LM Otero)

The new organization’s motto is “Walk Worthy,” taken from Colossians 1:10 “that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”

“Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces godly and responsible husbands, fathers and citizens,” the organization’s website states.

Though it’s based on Christian and biblical principles, its open to people of all faiths.

“While the program is undergirded by Biblical values and unapologetically reflects a Christian worldview, there is also a clearly defined inclusion policy for youth,” according to the membership standards. “Accordingly, all boys are welcome irrespective of religion, race, national origin or socio-economic status. Our goal is for parents and families of every faith to be able to place their boys in a youth program that endeavors to provide moral consistency and ethical integrity in its adult leaders.”

Larry Wagner, who is a leader recruiting members and host churches for organization in Northeast Florida told WTEV in Jacksonville, Fla., “as a Christian, I see Trail Life USA as a way to be

more explicit with my Christianity and imparting that aspect of it as they grow into manhood.”

Wagner said that potential troop leaders agree to a statement of faith, that includes defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman, according to the Jacksonville station.

“For the youth who are still exploring who they are or might be having a conception of who they might be, we make no such constraint,” Wagner said. “Come on board, walk with us for a while. We’ll see where this leads.”

The idea for the organization came last September in Nashville, when 1,200 former scout masters, Eagle Scouts, parents, church leaders and other former professions with the Boy Scouts of America form 44 states gathered.

The Boy Scouts of America, a 103-year-old organization, sparked controversy last year when it lifted a ban on gay youth scout members. It did not lift a ban on adult gay scout masters. The new policy for the Boy Scouts also took effect Wednesday.

The Trail Life USA membership standards for the organization includes, “The basis for the program’s ethical and moral standards is found in the Bible. In terms of sexual identification and behavior, we affirm that any sexual activity outside the context of the covenant of marriage between one man and one woman is sinful before God and therefore inconsistent with the values and principles of the program.”

Look to God and never give up

Bible - Scripture

Jan 01, 2013

The Spirit That Conquers

Read | Philippians 3: 7-14

Paul was a man with a spirit that conquered. Throughout his ministry, he faced countless obstacles but never gave up. He pictured the Christian life as a race, and we each need this same kind of spirit if we hope to finish well.

Courage: A conquering spirit is willing to risk failure. Though we naturally want to appear strong and capable, God delights in empowering us in our weaknesses so He gets the glory.

Confidence: We’re likely to stumble when we doubt our ability to do what God requires. However, when our confidence is placed in the Lord instead of in ourselves, we can move ahead, knowing that He’ll enable us to do His will.

Commitment: The Lord promises to: guide us as we run the race; provide whatever is needed; and strengthen us along the way. However, we must be committed to Him and determined to carry out His will.

Persistence: The road we’re traveling is full of distractions, opposition, and obstacles that tempt us to give up. That’s why Paul advises us to “press on” through hardships toward that which is of eternal value (v. 14).

Forward Focus: We must also forget what lies behind and reach forward to what lies ahead (v. 13). Those weighed down by baggage from the past lose sight of the goal.

The key to success in this race is an all-consuming desire to reach the goal. If we find no value in the prize, we’ll readily give up along the way and settle for the immediate gratification the world offers. But if we understand what awaits us at the finish line in heaven, we’ll press on.
