GCM Watch was blessed to grab an exclusive interview with brand new author Mya Huff who burst onto the literary scene with a heavy hitting book which dutifully tackles many of the pervasive myths circulated about homosexuality. An EXlesbian who lives in DC, Huff is currently promoting the book and hopes that it not only shuts down the confusion but that it also mends broken hearts, minds and souls with the truth of the gospel. Read this incredible interview, then hurry and get this important new resource to equip yourself!
Gay Christian Movement Watch: Your book Homosexuality: Dispel the Myth, Mend the Broken Pieces enters the scene at a time where there is widespread belief that changing from homosexuality is “dangerous and impossible”. Did that affect what you decided to write?
Mya Huff: In some ways yes. That’s one of the myths that needs to dispelled. The bible says, “Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, (Ephesian 3:20) . If God is able to do what cannot be fathomed by men, why can’t a person be free from homosexuality? That individual is only asking for what their minds are able to process. God can do so much more than setting an individual free. Deliverance is not a challenge to God, by any means. To suggest something is impossible for God challenges who God says He is.
GCMW: All lies are destructive, but which myth or lie stands out to you as the most destructive one if left unanswered?
MH: One of the biggest myths this book deals with is the limits society tries to place in God. There is a lie that a person can’t be totally free from homosexuality. What the world calls a “cure”, we call deliverance. To suggest what God can’t do, should raise red flags to the masses, but people are falling for it. You never allow anyone to tell you what God can’t do. Is He not more than able?
MH: Absolutely. The myths dispelled in this book go beyond the issue of homosexuality. The book is encouraging all of us to reject the lies the enemy has tried to tell the human race. The first thing Satan tried to distort within humanity was our identity. Understanding our identity dictates the perception we have of ourselves and God. Also it’s not enough sometimes to say to an individual, “Just stop what you’re doing” or “You just need to change”. Sometimes on Sunday morning the pastor may spend 30 minutes talking on homosexuality, but there are people who need more. That is what this book is for. For broken individuals, broken families, addictions, and those who have been suffering for years with heartbreak. When you see someone struggling with any type of destructive lifestyle it can be a sign of brokenness. Homosexuality: Dispel the Myth, Mend the Broken Pieces is a book about encouragement, redemption, and hope. If anyone is struggling with the lifestyle in secret or openly, in their thoughts, or just internally this book is for them. No one needs to feel condemned. Truth sometimes manifests conviction. Conviction is not condemnation, it is grace. Grace is spiritual rehab and no matter how long any of us have been saved, we are all checked in.
GCMW: So for someone who’s gracefully convicted and comes out of lesbianism, when can they expect to get to a place of stability?
MH: Stability sometimes comes with a made up mind. If a person is trying to lose weight they make one good decision one day at a time. I know for me my stability came when I was faced with what I once was, and my response was flipped so to speak. God had to change my mindset, and turn it right side up. When my thought process begin to change it was like seeing the manifestation of the work God was doing in me. When my mind was stable, my actions followed. Deliverance can be a process. So no one should be discouraged if it doesn’t happen overnight. My deliverance did not happen overnight. I had to wait and keep walking. Make up in your mind that tomorrow you will wake up, pick up your cross, and keep following Christ. Don’t put so much focus on the (what), you are simply dying to you flesh as all men are called to do. We all have to die to something daily.
GCMW: Some EXhomosexuals are afraid to tell their story for fear of rejection and even retribution. What made you cross that line and put your story out there?
MH: To be honest it wasn’t my choice. This book started out as something different than what it turned out to be. Initially this book was dealing with strictly with heartbreak. In an effort to help others get through those tough seasons. There was nothing about me, homosexuality, or my past in the manuscript. When I started out there was one night around 3:00am I had a writer’s block, so I got off the computer. I prayed and asked God what do I say next? And He answered clear as day and said, “Tell the story.” I put the covers over my head and acted like I didn’t hear what He just said, He kept talking. I laugh when I think about that now. My reaction was that way, because I somewhat understood what God was asking of me.
GCMW: Wow, what you said resonates! It reminds me of how God convicted me about my disobedience in telling what he’d done for me. I had no choice but to say yes to him. In the end all that matters is that we do his will, amen?
MH: Writing this book had everything to do with obedience. Sometimes in life its not that a person is not making an effort, its about doing what God asked and how He asked it to be done. Frustration and chaos set in when we try to improvise, for the specific instructions that God gives us. Look at what happened with Saul and the Amalekites. (I Samuel 15) It wasn’t that Saul didn’t move when God asked him to, he didn’t finish the work God asked to be done. Partial obedience is still disobedience. That applies to every aspect of our walk with God.
GCMW: In chapter two of the book, you talked about the illusion of homosexuality. Satan projects this front-loaded illusion that its good, normal and desirable?
MH: Very much so. The enemy’s job is stimulate the flesh so much that people forget about the state or wellbeing of their soul. In the body of Christ we are called to pick up our cross daily and follow Christ, even if that cross comes with discomfort. Most times in discomfort we see it as impossible to be happy. We have forgotten what it means to rejoice in our sufferings. (See. Romans 5:3) In this world Satan presents a path where people lay down their cross, and at the same time pick up “happiness.” There is a lie that sometimes has even been preached in the pulpit, that as believers we are not supposed to go through anything. We exist in a realm that is outside of the perfect will of God. That is why we pray for God will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. As the humans race we are only supposed to be passing through our current existence, while pursuing an eternal one.
GCMW: Mya, as I was reading through, this really caught my attention. You wrote: “Breakups in the lesbian community are like nothing you’ve ever seen.” How is that possible with all the media images of happy, smiling lesbian couples looking like they just stepped out of a Mayberry RFD scene?
MH: That’s just like the “sex movement”. The media and entertainment [industry] promotes how pleasurable sex can be. But there’s very little mention in that promotion of soul ties, STDS, and teen pregnancy. They show patches of dressed up bondage, with a fine print of chains. Most times people’s brokenness takes place in secret. If someone catches an STD they are not going to announce it to the world. In the same way, when the bottom falls out of the lifestyle of homosexuality, the media isn’t going to report that.
GCMW: You also touched on the “gay church” in this book. What type of impact has the “gay church” had on the Body of Christ?
MH: First I want to say that God had to teach me that just because someone says church, does not mean they are referring to His church. The Body of Christ is the bride of Christ Jesus. To suggest this idea of a “gay church” is an effort to distort who God is, Holy. Whether people see it that way is another matter entirely. God is not partial when it comes to His Word and He is not returning for a bride with an identity crisis. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the same acts people are trying to put a stamp of approval on today. Now you have two men who present themselves as Pastor and First Gentlemen before God. Deeming it acceptable and pleasing, and that is false. The idea of a “gay church” further promotes the false ideology that you can live any type of way and still inherit the Kingdom of God. The “gay church” is just the new face of that same deception. But should we be surprised? First it was fornication, and in some ways believers have learned to live with the lie you get a pass because of how the flesh feels. Now that we have gotten deeper down the rabbit hole, people are “shocked.” Lust knows no gender and is never satisfied. We have stopped preaching holiness, because it “hurts” people’s feelings. In some ways we opened the door.
GCMW: In your journey out of lesbianism, other than the Lord, who’s been an inspiration to you?
MH: Joyce Meyer. Beauty for Ashes is my favorite book by her. Hearing what God did for her was amazing and inspiring. Taking her through the process freedom, forgiveness, and deliverance was eye opening. It was like if this woman learned to trust God again after all she had been through, He can help me get to that same place. Reading Joyce Meyer’s story I was reminded there is nothing too hard for God.

A good write up in Barbwire about so called “queer theology”. But be warned its like having to watch rotting animal carcasess. Its filthy, disgusting and unbelieveably called Christian. Perhaps queer is an appropriate label for it considering its so far outside the norm of Christian theology, its just like the sexual activity that spawned it.
Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 1 Timothy 4:1
Gay theology paints everything, every interpretation of the bible’s passages (the ones they are interested in) with an infected sexual brush. A sample from the article:
According to “gay pastor” Timothy R. Koch, in his article “Cruising as Methodology: Homoeroticism and the Scriptures,” the description of Elijah in 2 Kings 1:8, wearing goat skins and a leather belt, means that he was “channeling goat gods” as the scriptural prototype of the homosexual “leather” subculture. Koch also makes many other such disturbing “discoveries.” For instance, 2 Kings 10:12–17 contains an account of Israel’s King Jehu and Jehonadab taking an innocent ride in a chariot, but to Koch’s warped mind, the text is pregnant with sexual innuendo as he envisions this episode as a “clear” reference to a homosexual pleasure trip. And in Judges 3:12–26, when Ehud plunged an 18-inch knife into Israel’s Moabite oppressor, Eglon, Koch takes great interpretive liberties to distort this passage into a scene of sexual penetration by a phallus.
In the same Queer Commentary, Lori Rowlett’s article “Violent Femmes and S/M [Sadomasochism]: Queering Samson and Delilah” makes the preposterous claim that, “Delilah is a the femme dominatrix teasing and tormenting Samson, who has all the characteristics of a ‘butch bottom’” [a lesbian sexually receptive partner].
Robert E. Goss, a former Jesuit priest, abandoned his Catholic ministry to pursue a homosexual relationship. His books include Jesus Acted Up: A Gay and Lesbian Manifesto and Queering Christ: Beyond Jesus Acted Up. Goss is a recognized theological “leader” in the Metropolitan Community Church, the primary “gay Christian” denomination. Goss even achieved a false air of respectability when he won the 2000 Templeton Course Prize in Religion and Science. According to Rev. Edward Ingebretsen, Director of American Studies at Georgetown University, Goss is a “preeminent” voice who fulfills a “prophetic role” for the Christian “resistance.” And what does this foremost homosexual “prophet” have to say? Goss writes: “Jesus evolved from a friend in childhood, to lover, and to the Queer Christ calling me out of the closet into the streets as an activist priest…I trace my first unspoken words of physical attraction to the crucified Jesus, wanting to strip off his loincloth and gaze at his genitals … I lusted after the figure of Christ, imagining him as the bearded hunk depicted by Michelangelo.” Moreover, this offensive “prophet” of perversion also deviously interprets the Roman centurion’s spearing of Christ as an erotic image of “a penetrated male, a bottom [the passive sexual partner in a male homosexual act].”
How anyone in their right mind could remotely claim any of this is associated with Christ or even common sense is beyond bizarre. But whole Christian denominations have been subverted and permanently disfigured by beliefs like this. That’s why Gay Christian Movement Watch will continue to fight with the sharpest of swords this lie from the deepest pits of hell. Over the last seven years we have dutifully documented and refuted this vicious heretical strain. See our past stories and articles here.
ATLANTA – Black Christian News Network has called upon influential black preachers to protest Morehouse College’s decision to induct an openly homosexual bishop into its MLK Jr. International Board of Preachers today. But the question is did anyone hear or did they hear and simply ignored it?
Morehouse confirmed that Bishop OC Allen would be inducted at the event. BCCN. This led BCCN to inquire rhetorically:
“Where are leading black pastors, honorary inductees, and leading black churches protesting the induction of an openly homosexual man into the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Board of Preachers at Morehouse University? There are many godly black ministers who have been married to female wives for 20, 30, and 40 years, who have been faithful to the Gospel call, and who have lived the principles of Jesus Christ and his servant, Martin Luther King Jr., who deserve this honor. Leading black pastors, honorary inductees who are still living, and leading black churches ought to protest this abominable decision.
BCNN1 is calling upon all black Christian pastors, ministers, churches, and all straight Morehouse men of the past and present to do everything in their power to not let the powers that be who have made this ungodly decision to defile Martin Luther King Jr.’s good name and the Martin Luther King Jr. Chapel at Morehouse College by stopping this abominable charade. We assure you that if this is not stopped it is going to diminish the honor of being named to the Board of Preachers to nothing. And if we know true black Christian preachers, many are going to ask to have their names taken off the list. By actions like this, the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Martin Luther King Jr. Chapel, and the civil rights movement are being destroyed piece by piece. Rise up, true black men of God, and stop this foolishness today! There are at least four men on the list below who have the clout to end this foolishness with just a phone call or an email.”
BCCN posted the pictures of the influential preachers along with its challenge. Its unclear whether all these were inductees into the group in the past or just a wish list of black preachers with “influence”.
The business of influence
Where are they you ask? I’ll tell you where they are.
Planning their next megaconference and booking homosexual gospel artists to whet their entertainment appetites. They’re just getting out of bed from some downlow hookup. Gender is not an issue just as long as the sex is on demand. They’re in meetings plotting a takeover of some denominational office just before they go off to pick up the tithes and offerings from Sunday. Where are they? On the golf course at that luxury resort the church is paying for because they are a bit stressed over the demands of being a CEO who has to fly around the city from “campus” to campus on a helijet. Where are they? Where they have been for a while now: parked near a dimly lit section of Name, Image and Assets Blvd.
The deeper problem is that the leadership of the black church has for the most part veered off course onto Name, Image and Assets Boulevard. Its trendy, safe and doesn’t threaten the status quo of man made kingdoms. Its a course where concern with one’s public image is assigned high premium. Add to that the tragic fact that homosexuals will throw a sodomistic-Genesis 19 style fit on the contemporary church and the protection of image is even more priority. The contemporary church leader hireling is savvy. He or she knows that image is connected to the opportunity to get money. And its really the lust for mammon and its privileges that drive them to protect their carefully cultivated image. Like dogs behind a fence, they will bark loudly on a safe turf, but conveniently bypass the open gate. Consequently, actually standing up against minor perversion situations like the OC Allen induction are seen as risks not worth taking.
Seems like the black church and its leaders have self-restricted to only speaking out on race issues. Said Rev. R.B. Holmes (with bullhorn) on “Stand Your Ground” laws: “The Black church has become too quiet, too passive, too disconnected when it comes to challenging policies programs and persons that degrade and devastate our people.”
We’re living in times where the power of the sinner can seemingly overpower that of the church, because its leaders are self serving cowards. Its rather sad to see BCCN make this call and no one (of noted influence) answers. In case you haven’t noticed its happened numerous times before. And each time it does, the enemies of the cross become more emboldened in their quest to enslave the church to its perversion agenda.
Why be angry at OC Allen? He has already been judged and found guilty. OC Allen has his reward and that’s as far as God will allow it to go. In the end, his earthly works of wood, hay and stubble will be consumed quickly in the fire. But where are the shepherds who will give their lives to uphold the standards of the gospel of Jesus Christ? That’s where the anger should be directed. The real problem is that a call to the salt to be salt has gone unheeded. What follows is much more tragic than the induction of a religious homosexual by an educational idol.
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. Matthew 5:13
In the postmodernist scheme of thinking, people are free to marry whom they will, but doesn’t the bible warn Christians about being “unequally yoked”?
COGIC’s 2013 convocation agenda is out and its peppered with morally questionable COGIC leaders. Which, by the way, happens every year. The 2013 speaker lineup includes Pastor Maria Gardner, a well known personality in COGIC circles.
Gardner divorced Deacon Burnett Thomas and in 2012 the former “Elect Lady” of COGIC’s Evangelism Department married progay apostate Bishop James Langston the nonbiological father of lesbian bishop Yvette Flunder. Langston’s COGIC connections include being brother in law to W.W. Hamilton a former member of the church’s highest governing body, the General Board. But Langston isn’t just a passive bystander to his daughter’s heinous teachings and lifestyle. According to the Flunder’s organizational website, Langston is part of the gay denomination’s “family”.
Flunder’s mother Ruth, accepted the homosexual lie and begin working in the Fellowship until she died in 2007. Ruth Langston’s funeral was a snapshot of the uncomfortable intersection of COGIC and its homosexual offspring. The question is does Gardner also accept the homosexual lie that her new husband espouses?
Despite Gardner’s former years of preaching glory, her life has become littered with sex, divorce and remarriage scandals. It will be interesting to hear what she will “preach” to the COGIC faithful.
Its not clear who chooses speakers for COGIC’s high and holy gatherings, but more and more the speaker lineups are emanating the stench of false teachers. Tragically, like postmodernist influence on culture, the wheels of the organization have been turning slight degrees away from the truth of holiness.
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person–such a man is an idolater–has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them. Ephesians 5:6-11
Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.
For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. Jude, verse 4
There’s a lot of raunchy stuff going on in church buildings today. The bible uses the word licentiousness which mean lacking moral restraints; especially disregarding sexual restraints. In this case, it is individuals who disregard the moral and sexual restraints outlined in scripture.
So it would stand to reason that a false shepherd like Dennis Meredith would offer his false church a false class on “relationships” aka gay sex positions. Instead of being a house of the Lord, Meredith seems intent on transforming his location into a house of ill repute.
What’s the real problem at Tabernacle Baptist Church? Is the 85% homosexual (per Meredith) membership having trouble trying to figure out if they are masculine or feminine? Are people that confused about their gender? All it takes is a quick look in the mirror to resolve that. And incredibly, Meredith will teach them what role to play during male sexual activity? According to the bible, both the passive sexual partner and the aggressive sexual partner are defined as ungodly and degrading and neither will inherit the kingdom of God.
Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
For self derived benefits, false teachers always have their noses in the sex business. They would never teach the people God’s standard of sexual holiness, which by the way isn’t hidden nor a mystery. 1 Thessalonians 4:3-8
It is God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
Meredith is defrauding his followers by promoting his brand of sexual expression instead of God’s. Its important to false teachers to be in control of how their followers view sex because it helps to supply them with a harem of potential sex partners.
It looks like the gay church is becoming increasingly desperate to hold the attention of the folks it attracts with it so called “welcoming and affirming” message. If you trick em to get em in, you have to keep up the tricks to keep em. As someone once noted: stupid ideas never die, they just keep coming back.
