Skip to comments.'Gay' recovery Group Returns to Bondage: Media cheers after Exodus International disbands
Posted on 06/23/2013 1:50:47 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
The headlines in the liberal media are gleefully trumpeting the demise of Exodus International, the leading icon of the ex-gay movement. From pray away the gay to acceptance, chortles the L.A. Times. But this is not really a story about an organization, but only its leader, Alan Chambers, and his unfortunate capitulation to the world. I invite you to join me in prayer for him.
Those of us in the know have over the past few years watched Alan slowly transform Exodus into his own private fiefdom, while at the same time he slowly gravitated inexorably away from recovery. By recovery I mean the state of mind which focuses on freedom in Christ from bondage to sin as exemplified by 1 Corinthians 6:9-11: Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
In anticipation of this sad day, many former Exodus member organizations broke away months ago and formed a new organization, the Restored Hope Network. RHN will carry on the important work of the church in helping homosexuals recover from same-sex attraction disorder. I applaud the courage of these men and women to remain true to Scripture in the face of intense hostility and persecution from the gay movement and its many powerful allies. Their ministry will not be made any easier by the triumphal gloating and attacks of their now greatly emboldened detractors.

HOMOSEXUAL, because there’s nothing GAY about it.
That even one person successfully changed proves that it can be done.
