2014 ERLC Leadership Summit to address Sexuality

Gotta give props to the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. While other denominations are still in a state of shock or silence about human sexuality from the biblical perspective, they are setting the standard by giving the issue priority attention. And deservedly so. With an explosion of false religious conferences breeding every lie possible about sex and sexuality, the church needs to wade into the fray with truth and comprehensive education.

The ERLC Leadership Summit will address the gospel and human sexuality to equip pastors and church leaders to speak to these critical issues in their own congregations. This event will be held April 21-23, 2014, at the Southern Baptist Convention building in Nashville, TN.

From broken marriages to pornography to homosexuality, sexual confusion and sexual brokenness has ravaged our culture and can deteriorate the integrity of our churches.

Mya Huff’s new book dispels gay myths; mends broken pieces

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?

Mya Huff BookGCMW: Amen, He is more than able! Your book isn’t some 90 page quick read. This is a fairly comprehensive rebuttal to a lot of the attendant lies floating around out there.

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.

24 years out of homosexuality and into holiness

I give all praises to God who on April 12, 1990 delivered my soul and my life from the devil who sought to sift me as wheat. Its been 24 years since I left homosexuality to follow Jesus and I don’t regret one single moment of it. The journey thus far has been filled with ups, downs, highs and lows. Ive seen the glory of God and Ive experienced his hand of loving discipline. All that I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to the One who redeemed me. In case you have never heard my testimony, its still the same. God delivered me, changed me and transformed me. He didn’t change me from a fornicating homosexual to a fornicating heterosexual but from a sinner to a son. He gave me what no man could ever give me: love that would never leave me or forsake me. Im thankful to my wife and my children for loving me and respecting me as I have obeyed God to tell this world that I am free indeed. Thanks to all who helped me grow spiritually by rebuke, discipline, love and giving me opportunity to be a man of God. I pause to give Him glory before I head back into the harvest fields.

Gay theology is as demonic as it gets

gcmA 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].

And this:

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.

Throwup Thursday: False teacher Troy Perry’s gay gospel

If you love the truth, welcome to Throwup Thursday. Amidst cheers and applause, the vomit flows unfiltered from the mouth of gay christian false teacher Troy Perry, founder of the Metropolitan Community Church. He even shouts out a former Church of God in Christ member in the audience who’s now married to another man.

False prophet Carlton Pearson defensive about being called gay

False prophet du jour Carlton Pearson used to be pentecostalism’s golden boy. Then, he found a wooden nickel and began a crusade to prove that wooden nickels have more value than gold. He’s never been the same since. Strangely, in a March 26th facebook post, Pearson defends his heterosexuality. Strange because he gives no reason as to why he has to defend it. But his defensiveness does bring to scrutiny an oft used accusation against people who preach against homosexuality. Over and over homosexuals (especially the religious type) assert that those who oppose homosexuality are secretly homosexual themselves. They are “repressed closet cases” they say. But what of those who obsessively advocate for homosexuality? Wouldn’t the logic apply to them as well? It did in this case. Apparently, its been put to the test and Carlton Pearson is upset and on the defensive.

His words follow, verbatim:

pearsonI am not gay, but wouldn’t apologize nor be ashamed if I were. I love my wife dearly and have been married to her for over 20 years. We have scores of married and single gay friends we love and respect. You don’t have to be gay to love gay people and even hang out some with them. You don’t have to be a divorcee to love, support and respect them. Neither do you have to be Muslim or Jewish to have friends from those religious disciplines. As Inclusionists, we teach that we don’t have to go along to get along and that we can mind many of the same things without necessarily having the same mind about everything. Inclusionists believe Peace is possible, both individually and globally.
Jesus was accused of eating with “sinners” (Mark 2:15) and protecting prostitutes and adulteresses from the stones of the religious right of his day, called Pharisees. The word Pharisee translates “separatist” or “separated” in both Hebrew and Greek. I am an Inclusionist and proudly so.
Many of my self-righteous detractors accuse me of being gay because I am so outspokenly supportive of gays. Next to the Jewish community, the same gender loving (SGL) community were the first to reach out to me after hearing my Gospel of Inclusion. Do these same people, suspicious of my sexuality, also say I am atheist, a Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Scientologist because I hang with, love and accept them all and others, including those hypocritical so- called Christians who hate themselves and everyone else?
I’m not preaching false doctrine, just exposing it while dealing with some 2000 years of entrenched and mostly erroneous indoctrination. I love Christ and so- called “Christian values” but those taught more by Christ than most Christians.
It both amazes and amuses me that so many Christians simply cannot believe that someone loves unconditionally in the way they like to proclaim Jesus taught and did. Most so-called “people of faith” actually have more fear than faith or more faith in their fears than in God. Or perhaps when I say God as it relates to fundamentalists, it is commensurate to fear of God or faith in their fear of his wrath, in effect is their worst fear. Their God, in order to keep them from sinning, something they presumably would prefer and habitually do, threatens to send them to an eternal customized torture chamber. I once feared that god and his hell too, but I no longer do and I don’t even believe in that manmade and presumably bible supported god or his hell. Even the heaven I believe in is not the one in the Christian bible. That one is too gaudy for my taste. I never liked the streets of gold thing. Reminds me too much of my old TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Stage). BTW, my dear 84 year old mother keeps one of the 3 TVs in her bedroom tuned to TBN 24/7 Lol! . I actually prefer sands and beaches to walls of Jasper and topaz as the book of Revelation describes and prescribes. And why would heaven need walls anyway? Moreover, as I close, most gays I know are much more like Christ than many of the Christians I know. And most of my same gender loving (SGL) friends, both male and female, seem to be better (not bitter) and more responsible and loving Christians than most common fundamentalists. Same is true of many of the non-Christian SGL people. I could say the same thing about several of my atheist, Jewish and Muslim friends as well. Again, this is not a criticism, but an observation and an important one that must not be ignored. Being in church or a church no more makes you Christlike than being in a garage makes you an automobile. What say ye?

This is nothing more that perverse and self serving apologetics. Pearson has so deeply invested himself in his inclusion delusion, he may never recover from it. We can only hope he will, but the father of lies has a hook in his mouth and God may just allow it to remain in place. Still, Pearson has a following. That’s not necessarily a good thing, because Jim Jones had a following as well. If one does not escape the clutches of a false teacher it will lead to death: most certainly spiritual and sometimes naturally.

Atlanta minister Mark Moore writes that Pearson’s inclusion delusion will force the church to abandon its foundational anchors.

“To view inclusion as a viable Christian doctrine, we would have to throw away the Old Testament and its big mean God who had the nerve to punish people. We would need to censor the radical Jesus of the Gospels on that whole “must be born again” thing and silence Paul and his admonition to “come out from among them.” We would certainly have to walk through revelations with a white out paint brush and cover up all of that lake of fire and judgment stuff. In short, we would have to completely disregard the word of God in order to make inclusion make sense. Jesus is not simply a way, He is the only way. Yet and still, it seems that more and more people are living lives and promoting lifestyles that suggest Bishop Pearson was right in his assertion that the church is moving closer to his position.”
