BradStine webBrad Stine brought his unique brand of comedy performance to CPE Monday night where retailers got a dose of American conservatism and Christian humor.

Stine decried the political correctness that has become prevalent in the U.S. today.

“I care that we can’t laugh at differences anymore,” he said, encouraging everyone to be “adults” and not get offended. He joked with a bald man in the audience and with another man who had piercings.

Stine referred to Galatians 3:28, about not being Jews or Greeks, slave or free, male or female. He talked about honoring one’s gender, but that each believer should “identify as a child of God.”

He said he appreciates homeschoolers who independently choose not to attend public schools, but feels sorry for them too, joking that “everything that happens to them is a learning moment.”

He got serious at the end of his show, likening his call from God to his prophetic style of humor and how hard it was to pave the way to the work of Christian retailers who have an “incredibly challenging mission field.”

Stine appeared without being paid, he said, because “I wanted to give you something” because he knows “how hard it is” to be a Christian retailer. He challenged retailers to trust God for their future because He always take care of them. He said he wanted retailers to be “successful” and “bear fruit” in their ministries.

Near the end of his nearly hour-long set, he sensed that God may have been speaking to him in the moment to do a Bookstore Night in churches with a designated store benefiting from the proceeds.
