Channel 8 WISHTV carried this interesting story involving a gay church in Indianapolis.
A church congregation that was expecting to share space with another was forced to worship outside on Sunday. Now, the pastor is threatening to take legal action. The pastor of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis gave 24-Hour News 8 a copy of the contract he had with The House of God Church to use its facility. He said when they showed up for their first service this morning, they weren’t allowed inside. A church isn’t just defined by its four walls. It’s defined by the people who worship there. And standing under the sun along Schofield Avenue, members of Powerhouse Church of Indianapolis proudly put that on display.
Who wrote this “news story”, one of the church members? Since when does a real reporter editorialize in a news story about whether the church is a true representative of a biblical congregation or not? But we digress on the media’s incestuous desires for all things gay. The House of God made no comment as to the reason why it denied access to the incognito gay church.
“This was to be our first service here. We had signed a temporary lease for three months to worship here while we were in transition to our next space,” said the church leader Keith McQueen. “We gave them money, we had signatures and when we showed up, we were denied access not only to the church, but even onto the property.”
Some are calling the situation a publicity stunt to attract more members. Given the slant of the report, it sounds like they found someone willing to whip up the emotive frenzy in the church’s favor.
Pastors beware, homosexual churches have went full scale incognito! Before you allow any church to rent your facility, you should inquire as to their beliefs on homosexuality. Ask pointed, direct questions about the church’s doctrine, the lifestyle of the pastor or leader and who they are connected to. In addition do some basic online research to see who these people are BEFORE you agree to let sex heretics use your facility to “worship” a god different than the one you know to be true. In addition, update your bylaws and policies NOW to reflect what activities are allowed on your property.
This deception is something GCM Watch pointed out before here. Gay churches are disguising their true identities for one reason: to gain access that in most cases they could never have. In order to accomplish that four deceptive tactics are used.
1. They no longer own the term “gay” in connection with their churches. Now, the term of choice is “inclusive”, “inclusion” or “LGBTQI”. They dont want to be known as a gay church for same reason they dropped identifying with the term homosexual. Once inclusion becomes a liability, they will drop it as well and find another deceptive term to hide behind.
2. They have names that ape pentecostal churches i.e. Powerhouse
3. They ape church titles, forms of dress, etc. Wearing long robes, clergy collars, calling themselves bishops, apostles, etc.
4. Speaking “churchanese” which fools unsuspecting churches, especially those who need the extra money.
Whether the House of God church could legally do what they did is for the law to decide.
Recognize any of these false house prophets associated with the United Progressive Pentecostal Church? The homosexual-oriented pentecostalish organization is headed by chief false teacher OC Allen. The UPPC teaches that homosexuality is acceptable to God and that the bible is not opposed to same gender sexual relationships.
Then the LORD said to me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I have not sent them or appointed them or spoken to them. They are prophesying to you false visions, divinations, idolatries and the delusions of their own minds.
But there are also false prophets among the people, even as there are false teachers among you who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 Peter 2:1
Its sad when a so-called pastor stands up on Sunday morning and brags about going to clubs and cussing people out and the audience cheers him on. But such is the upside down world of the gay church. We’re finding out that the unsaved homosexual church hypocrites are doing a good job aping the unsaved heterosexual hypocrites in the church.
Darnell Gooch, who started a homosexual church in Memphis a couple of years ago, tries to justify profanity and frequenting lust clubs to make a bizarre analogy about satan “playa hatin” on the anointing. With a roll of the neck and some hip wiggling, Gooch rants “Yeah I did it! I’m still anointed. I went out last night, but yeah Im still anointed. I cussed somebody out yesterday, but Im still anointed. ”
Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming. In these you too once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Col 3:5-8
For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, 12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, Titus 2:11
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
