Sad and tragic news from New York. The New York Daily News reported that a gay christian minister was murdered by his unidentified boyfriend after a violent argument on the street. [story link]
“He was a good man,” Stephanie Rodriguez told the Daily News near William Ewell’s childhood home in Mt. Vernon. “His sister found out from police last night. This is shocking. He’s my daughter’s godfather. How am I supposed to tell her this?”
Ewell, who friends said was known as “Darryl,” was quarreling with his boyfriend at Bronx Park East and Mace Ave. near the Bronx Zoo Sunday when the younger man punched his lover, knocking him to the ground, police said.
Ewell later died, police said.
“He was a good person and he treated everyone good,” May Yarborough, 56, said. “His mother had him in church his whole life.”
Ewell also known as Bishop Darrell Ewell was about to start a church called The Universal Church of Love [facebook page] which featured pictures of him embracing a younger man referred to a “First G”. The term “First G[entleman]” was popularized by a homosexual church in Atlanta and is a parody of the black church’s husband-wife church leadership model.
According to the facebook page, “the Universal Church of Love is being formed in NYC. A place for all people to freely worship, seek salvation and prepare for the coming of Christ.”
Its unknown whether the younger man in the picture is the one charged with the crime. Police have not released that information.
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.
