Author and Culture Warrior Bill Muehlenberg exposes the evidence of cultural decline, the erosion of values, the decline of civility, the denial of truth and the elevation of unreason. He is devoted to exploring the major cultural, social and political issues of the day. His books offer reflection and commentary drawing upon the wealth of wisdom found in the Judeo-Christian tradition in addressing several areas of corruption in our culture. Bill offers reflective and incisive commentary on a wide range of issues, helping to sort through the maze of competing opinions, worldviews, ideologies and value systems. Therefore he is astute in giving a clear evaluation of a book like Freedom Realized. Bill says, This important new book can be roughly divided into three sections: the amazing story of Stephen Black; how churches and Christians should respond to the issue of homosexuality; and lastly, the testimonies of 16 other ex-homosexuals.
I wanted to give some insight to the “Different Kind of Missionary” found in those who give of their lives for Jesus in an “ex-gay” ministry. I want you to really think about what the ministers in “ex-gay” ministry are facing in this day as a very different kind of mission! First Stone Ministries, along with 40 ministries like ours, and several counseling agencies within the Restored Hope Network, are laboring together in helping individuals, churches, families, and friends to process through all the cultural ambiguity, misunderstandings, and lies about the sexual revolution of all things LGBTQ+. It is overwhelming!
Reminded of the prophecy concerning Art Katz. He gave a warning in 1980 about Exodus International. A really good reminder that God is sovereign and HE KNOWS!
Stephen Black was interviewed on the Arthelene Rippy Home Keepers Program on January 5, 2018 in Tampa, FL. The two segments were aired on January 23 and 24, 2018. The interviews are about "Freedom Realized - Finding Freedom From Homosexuality & Living A Life Free From Lables."
Stephen Black presented at the Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) Banquet and Teach-In.
Shame, that is, toxic shame that puts a believer in bondage must be released in confession, receiving prayer and release in the power of the Holy Spirit. On November 5, 2017 Dr. Sam Storms, Senior Pastor at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City gave a powerful message on freedom of toxic shame.

A Biblical answer to what St. Paul would say to the American Church Embracing So-called “Gay Christianity” and “Spiritual Friendships” in our day. “Gay Christianity” is being promoted at an alarming rate in several places in the Church worldwide.
First Stone Ministries' Staff traveled by SUV across the Southwestern part of the USA to San Diego, CA to participate in the Restored Hope Network Conference. This is an update about our adventure there and back.
I like Camilla Paglia's statement: "Homosexuality is not normal. On the contrary, it is a challenge to the norm. Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction (by God, I would add). No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous. Homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait."
Enjoy these thorough and scholarly videos on the subject of the Bible and homosexuality. Dr. Robert Gagnon, Associate Professor of the New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary gives an amazing presentation at Skyline Church in San Deigo, CA. Based upon Dr. Gagnon's fantastic work, "The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics", this excellent video presentation is presented here to give clear answers from the Bible texts and Bible hermeneutics.
The morning of March 28, 2009 at WWW.IHOP.ORG I feel deep grief and brokenness over several people I have known in ministry and served who are now living under a Gospel of Self Indulgence ~ The Gay Gospel. I truly mourn over the coming judgment of those who perpetuate this false gospel, and say, "peace, peace when there is no peace" for then there will be sudden destruction with no remedy.

Dr. Robert A. J. Gagnon has written an excellent article on answering five arguments for homosexuality from a Biblical view. This is an excellent resource for those who really desire to analytically think through the arguments for the "gay Christian" and that there is no condemnation of homosexuality. Ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and those who love our Lord and Savior and desire to defend the truth will enjoy this article. Dr. Gagn...Read More ➔
Today at my church home, Bridgeway, our pastoral leader, Alex Absalom shared a message on being a Person of Peace bringing influence into our world. The Lord used this message as a reminder of His mandate on those who wish us harm. We overcome evil by doing good. Pastor Alex didn’t share this particular verses found in Romans 12:20-21. His message was the “Definition of a Person of Peace” and his text was Mark 5, and Acts 10 a look at Cornelius’ l...Read More ➔

A Warning from the Word of God, from the book of Jude: A Warning to those who are unfaithful; who engage in all forms of sexually immorality and homosexuality. This is also a Scriptural warning to those who are rebellious to God's Holy Word, and who scoff and mock at the Scriptures, and it is a warning to those who are greedy for gain and the selfishly ambitious.
