Is Oklahoma Ready to Ban Counseling and Therapy for Sexually Confused Youth? Oklahoma HB2456 by Rep. Jason Dunnington, who is being used by the LGBTQ community to further their obvious goal of recruitment of binding children into LGBTQ+ chaos. People who have common sense can see this goal. The goal has always been recruitment and the normalization of homosexuality. Laws banning therapy and counseling for youth are clear, they demand that sexually confused children to enter the ranks of the LGBTQ+ community and not find any resolve of traumas or true freedom. The bills are truly the “MUST STAY GAY!” bills being forced on our youth across our nation. Unfortunately, there are few bold pastors or courageous leaders willing to call attention to this erosion. This is tragic in our day. Don’t be naive folks, this really is about recruitment and lust.

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."
As a Christian communicator, you have an advantage in today’s crazy world. You know the Source of truth. What a powerful idea. We face many who are like Pilate and cannot discern truth when it is right in front of them. This is willful blindness. Our job as communicators is simple; tell the truth.
Stephen Black publicly repenting from communicatiing a statement that leads to dumbing-down the real goal of holiness.
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.
My actual cup of coffee today This cup represents a very peaceful quiet morning being present to the Lord – I'm enjoying The Lord, thoroughly loving His presence in the word and in the Holy Spirit today. When I woke this morning the Holy Spirit reminded me of being present to Him as of the utmost important ‘one thing’ so that I (we) might be present to others in His power. So beloved, what gift of the Lord are you to others? What presence ...Read More ➔
With all the chatter about Trump and the other candidates for President, I sincerely hope you will consider a person's moral compass for electability. "If GOP leadership doesn't understand the basics in Genesis of Imago Dei and human sexuality, they don't get my support as it is depraved to believe homosexuality is acceptable behavior. Used to be the abortion issue that was politically incorrect, however now homosexuality becomes a litmus test of dividing between cons...Read More ➔
The Plain and Simple Truth about Attending a “Gay Wedding” — I am hearing of this more and more—that a Christian has been invited to attend a “wedding” between two men or two women. It is usually from a relative, a close friend, or perhaps their own child. A Christian who is faced with a decision whether to attend or not, processes through many questions with heart-ache. There is always the desire to be loving and kind t...Read More ➔
Failed Former Exodus President is Morphing into a Gay Activist This must be the most grievous thing I've ever written in exposing one of the most dangerous things I've ever witnessed from a so-called Christian. Unfortunately there are critics, mainly those who are afraid and passive, who believe it is unnecessary or even unkind to expose or talk about the tragic morphing of Alan Chambers into a gay-identified "Christian" and his influence of leading peop...Read More ➔
Yes, I said it! I’ll say it again, “It is child abuse to withhold counseling, therapy and pastoral care from a child or teenager struggling with unwanted same-sex attraction or homosexual behavior when he or she desires change and is seeking help! It is tragic to withhold or prevent counseling from a sexually abused child confused in his or her teenage years when they are seeking help to overcome their unwanted same-sex attraction.” This is what...Read More ➔

Often people of varied church affiliations use the same terminology, but may mean something totally different by their terms. Multitudes around the world say they are "Born Again" and yet their life-style demonstrates that their definition is one contrary to biblical teaching. I write this today, with the deepest concern for those who walk in bondage to sin. Jesus said "unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God" [John 3:3] and "most assuredly, I say to y...Read More ➔
John Wesley lived in the 1700's, and was perhaps England's most famous evangelist and preacher. His writings, preaching, and life ministry have made a tremendous impact on the Church as a whole. This article was taken from "The Complete Works of John Wesley," published by Baker Book House. As our brother John urged, read this message with a prayerful, open heart. "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." - Luk...Read More ➔
