A Disturbing Report: Nazarene Pastor Andy McGee And Love Wins LGBT Attack and Protest Those Who Preach Freedom From Homosexuality


[The implications of this report are extremely critical for the Church of the Nazarene and Christianity in general. Please read this carefully, and share with as many Christians as you can after you read the facts and conclusions presented. The homosexual agenda is being accepted within the denomination, including by some in leadership. I believe the church is in crisis and will soon fall if nothing changes].

[PDF available for download: Andy McGee Attacks Christians Who Help Homosexuals]

The ungodly Love Wins LGBT organization, which has been endorsed by former General Superintendent Jesse Middendorf as well as some Nazarene pastors and leaders, continues to do great harm to the church. Certainly there are many Nazarene pastors who oppose this ungodly ministry, but there seems far too many who either support it or are deliberately turning away from this fact. I have previously written about Andy McGee’s Love Wins: LGBT, exposing them as frauds pretending to evangelize the LGBT “community” for Jesus. The truth is, they reach out to bring homosexuals into the church, but they are content to let them remain in their bondage to homosexuality. They are not interested in the power of the Gospel to FREE the homosexual from sin. They are interested in affirming homosexuals and lesbians as who they are, to continue to identify with a sin and never forsake it, rather than find their identity in Christ. That is NOT what the Gospel is about. Now, Andy McGee and Love Wins:LGBT is attacking ministers who are using the real Gospel to help free sinners from all sexual sin.

Andy McGee is a false teacher who has attacked ministers of the Gospel such as Dr. Everett Piper of Oklahoma Wesleyan University. Dr. Piper dares to stand up to the purveyors of the lies of the LGBT movement and expose their true intentions and misguided ideas. That has resulted in attacks from Andy McGee and his blind followers. Andy McGee has also attacked Nazarene Pastor Jeff Allen, who posted an article that commented on Andy McGee’s very own words and actions! As a result, Andy McGee attacked him and slandered him as well. Finally, Andy McGee attacked me after I re-posted Pastor Allen’s truthful facts and his commentary. (https://reformednazarene.wordpress.com/2017/06/30/sounding-the-alarm-on-andy-mcgee-and-love-winslgbt/).

Subsequently, Andy McGee promised publically on July 15, 2017 that he would soon provide proof of the lies that Dr. Piper, Pastor Allen and I have supposedly said about him. (https://reformednazarene.wordpress.com/2017/08/02/advice-to-love-wins-lgbt-and-andy-mcgee-remember-the-ninth-commandment/). We are still waiting for Andy’s proof of our “lies”, which will never come, otherwise he denies his own words and actions! He has labeled anyone who opposes his agenda as liars, even when presented with his own words. Andy McGee’s Love Wins ministry is as fake as it gets, and is not God-inspired. It is inspired and directed by satan. And this article will demonstrate to you, from his own actions, words, and associations, that Andy and Love Wins LGBT bring condemnation upon themselves.

 

Purpose of This Article: To show more evidence of the unholy ministry of Love Wins: LGBT and Andy McGee.

How we will show this:

  1. By describing the First Stone Ministries of Stephen Black, its purpose, and what they really do. Andy McGee and other individuals and groups are attacking and protesting this ministry’s work in helping sinners become free from their homosexual sin. Stephen is a former homosexual who is offering biblical help to others who are seeking help. There is no coercion involved, and only a biblical approach is used. See this interview with Stephen about his ministry:
  2. By showing you who Sara Cunningham is (in her own words) and what she is promoting, including advocating for same sex marriage.
  3. By showing that Andy McGee and his organization are ideologically connected with radical homosexuality advocate Sara Cunningham in their opposition to biblically sound ministries that work to rescue those seeking freedom from the bondage of homosexuality.
  4. By showing you proof of Andy McGee and Love Wins LGBT and their active protest and opposition to biblical ministries that help homosexuals become free from their sin.

1. What Is First Stone Ministries?

In recent weeks, Andy and his group organized a visit to Council Grove Christian Church in Council Grove, KS, which was planning to show a video called Tranzformed: Finding Peace With Your God-Given Gender, that documents how trans-sexuals struggling with their sin have found freedom through Christ. (See the movie trailer here: https://tranzformed.org/) They were there to protest the ministry of Stephen Black, a former homosexual who has a ministry called First Stone Ministries. This ministry is dedicated to reaching out to homosexuals with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in order to set them free from sin. Andy and his gang suggest that this video is another example of “hate” towards homosexuals and transgenders. Here is First Stone’s doctrinal statement from their website (http://www.firststone.org/)

We believe Jesus has come to set the captives free from all areas of bondage. While we recognize sexual and relational brokenness is not part of God’s intent; we believe that through a personal relationship with Jesus our hearts and lives can be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe in the real presence of the Holy Spirit giving gifts that operate now in the lives of sincere believers.  We believe that all sincere believers in Jesus Christ as Lord also need to yield to the operation of the Holy Spirit to bring about continued sanctification.

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God; and therefore believe that an obedience to God’s Word will bring about the healing process and freedom from the bondage of sexual brokenness. We believe in one God eternally existent in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His death and blood atonement, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension into heaven, and in His personal physical return to earth.

Do these words sound like the words of a hateful, homophobic group? Of course not. And when you read through the First Stone’s website, any normal Christian will understand this is a biblically grounded ministry. Yet Andy McGee, who claims to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, is protesting the work of a former homosexual, who is now preaching the power of the Gospel unto salvation, which can free the homosexual from sin. Why is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene protesting this ministry, instead of supporting it? Here is an interview with Stephen Black in the Janet Mefferd radio show regarding the protest against this Christ-centered ministry to those who are broken sexually: (https://soundcloud.com/janetmefferdtoday/3-14-18-janet-mefferd-today)

And here is a public response from his ministry to the false accusations that the TranZformed documentary is “soul-crushing”: http://www.firststone.org/articles/post/public-response-concerning-tranzformed-documentary

First Stone Ministries: The Mission

Leading people In the Body of Christ to freedom from homosexuality and sexual brokenness* through Jesus Christ; to reach out to churches, schools, organizations, and the general public by providing education, biblical discipleship, support and AIDS ministry.

To Minister

To minister healing and restoration in all areas of brokenness. We specialize in leading those caught in a homosexual lifestyle and other areas of sexual brokenness to freedom in Jesus Christ. We are dedicated to the healing of the homosexual, and otherwise sexually broken, and wounded. Freedom from homosexuality is not a method, but a person, Jesus Christ; therefore we are dedicated solely to the purpose of bringing the life of Christ to people who desire to live their lives more like Jesus Christ and His examples given in the scriptures. We minister freedom through a personal and intimate relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord.

To Educate

To educate churches and Christians how they may respond biblically, compassionately, and knowledgeably to those impacted by homosexuality, relational and sexual sins, abuse and AIDS.

2. Who Is Sara Cunningham?

Sara Cunningham is a radical LGBT activist who openly advocates for same sex marriage. She goes by several other names such as “Free Mom Hugs” and “Free Mom Hugs Momma Bear”. She makes herself out to be a sweet Christian loving mother figure. Nothing could be further from the truth, as shown by some of the following Facebook posts, tweets and retweets. Her definition of “bad theology” is EVERY church not FULLY affirming Church leaders/members and that do not FULLY celebrate the Spiritual Gifts of the LGBTQ & agree with calling same sex marriage HOLY. Anyone or any church that doesn’t affirm and celebrate SIN has bad theology in her view. And this is the “awesome” role model that Sarah McGee praises and that Andy McGee networks with to shut down church conferences , church workshops, prayer, and repentance for same sex attracted persons seeking help. Sara and Andy are in effect blocking their efforts to be healed and keeping them imprisoned in SIN.

In Sara Cunningham’s own words, here is her theology of same sex marriage:

 

Sara Cunningham’s call for protesting a Christian organization trying to help homosexuals who are seeking to escape the bondage of their sin:

 

 

Sara’s disdain towards those who are Bible-believers:


 

And here, we see Sara’s extreme hatred, in a tweet directed against Pastor Jeremy Schossau. Here, we see evidence of the real heart of this “peaceful” mom. This woman and her fellow activists could very well have caused this man, his family and church members to be harmed or killed. She and her minions do not care (as long as their mission to force acceptance and celebration of the LBGT agenda on everyone is accomplished). No matter what demonic schemes she plans or deadly anger she incites, she plays the innocent loving/hugging/peaceful protester. Here is the story on the threats to this pastor:
https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/lgbt-advocates-threaten-to-kill-pastor-over-bible-workshop-for-sexually-con

 

Here, we see more theological nonsense from the “professing” Christian, Sara Cunningham:

So this is Sara Cunningham in a nutshell, as far as her beliefs regarding homosexuality, same sex marriage, and her disdain for biblical approaches to helping people in sin. Let’s look at her connection with Andy McGee and his group.

3. The Mutual Admiration Between Andy and Sarah McGee, and Sara Cunningham

There is a clear connection between Andy McGee, Sarah McGee, and the Love Wins LGBT organization, and the radical homosexuality activist Sara Cunningham. In their communications between each other, it shows that Andy McGee, who claims to be fully in line with “the polity of the Church of the Nazarene”, is a liar who is playing both sides of the fence. While displaying a facade in the church that he is in compliance with Nazarene doctrine, he shows the hypocrisy of it all by fellowship and mutual admiration with a known promoter of homosexual marriage, and who also rejects any church that does not fully embrace homosexuality as a “holy” part of Christian life. How Andy McGee has fooled even the General Superintendents is mind boggling and beyond my comprehension. Or have they bought into the lie as well?

 

Here is some of the evidence showing Andy’s unholy alliance with Sara Cunningham:

4. Andy McGee Attacks Those Who Preach Freedom From Homosexuality

Andy McGee has a new strategy. He is going to war with those who are preaching and teaching that homosexuals can find freedom from the bondage of their sin, and become completely transformed by the blood of Jesus Christ! He and his group has joined a protest against a minister who was once himself in bondage to homosexuality, because Andy cannot stand to hear the message that Jesus can free homosexuals from sin and make them a new creation. Andy McGee and his ministry is threatened not by hateful people, as he often suggests, but his ministry is threatened by the real Gospel of salvation and freedom through Jesus Christ.

Here, Andy calls on his friends to protest Council Grove Church and its presentation of the Tranzformed video. He also falsely accuses First Stone Ministries of using “conversion therapy” (whatever that means) when they are simply using the truth of scripture to help those seeking help.


Andy, Sarah, and their minions protesting at Council Grove Church, calling First Stone Ministries a “Shame Ministry and “Sham Ministry”. Ironically, it is Andy McGee who has the sham ministry, inspired and controlled by satan.

 

Here, Andy celebrates the suspension of Stephen Black’s Facebook page, and lies again. Andy McGee is a proven habitual liar who is an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene.

 

Conclusion: Indicted By His Own Words, Actions, and Associations

It is obvious that And McGee and Love Wins LGBT does not uphold the teaching of scripture, and to a lesser importance, also does not uphold the official teaching of the Church of the Nazarene. However, these facts not only indict Andy McGee and his unholy organization, but it is an indictment of the weak leadership of the church which has allowed Andy to gain a foothold within the denomination. To allow them to have a booth at General Assembly in 2017 was a disgrace, but to continue to support this unholy ministry is a further disgrace, and a slap in the face of the Lord Jesus Christ. In a recent podcast interview, Andy confesses to the fact that he, as a bi-sexual, wakes up every morning DESIRING someone other than his wife. Here is the link: (https://soundcloud.com/user-671602466/ep-21-rev-andy-mcgee)

These people are blasphemers, and although they claim to be tolerant, they actually display the intolerance that has become so ingrained in the radical LGBT movement. Of lesser importance, it is behavior unworthy of a denomination whose creed has been “Holiness unto the Lord.” Yet, sadly, we have a former General Superintendent, Jesse Middendorf, taking pictures with this group and endorsing them. We have another retired GS, JK Warrick, placating Andy McGee at a district assembly while disparaging Dr. Everett Piper for speaking truth. As for the District Superintendent of Andy’s district- I am sending this and all other evidence to him, to consider whether Andy McGee and his ministry is worthy to be called Nazarene, and more importantly, whether it is a ministry that Jesus Christ would approve of.

 (Love Wins LGBT booth at General Assembly, 2017)

The goal of Andy McGee and his organization is not to preach freedom from sexual sin. You will not find these types of declarations on his website, or from the pulpit. He will most certainly block you from his Facebook page, as he has done to many, if you ask him honest questions. If you ask him if he preaches that homosexuality is a sin, he will reply with the standard “we are completely in line with the POLITY of the Church of the Nazarene.” He does not and will not preach freedom from homosexuality, because his goal is to “welcome” and “affirm” and “love” the homosexual- but not to have Christ transform them and let them say goodbye to their sinful lifestyle. Andy’s version of Love is taking sinners straight to hell.

DO NOT BE FOOLED: We are battling against principalities and powers; we are battling satan himself, who has taken over the minds of people like Andy McGee and is using them as useful tools to bring down as many as possible into the pit of hell. Scripture says “you shall know them by their fruits”, and Andy McGee has shown his fruits. He is a pawn of satan, and by his fruits he reveals that he himself is not saved yet. Because of that, we must pray for his salvation, while at the same time praying that this unholy ministry be closed down if he does not repent. The biggest question that puzzles me is, why are the General Superintendents allowing this nonsense to continue?

Perhaps there needs to be a lot more Nazarenes asking them the same thing today. Here is their email address: bgs@nazarene.org. Here is also the name and email address of the District Superintendent for Andy McGee’s district: Dr. Edward L. Estep. Email: edwardlestep@aol.com. This is also being sent to every district in the United States and Canada.

Advice To Love Wins LGBT And Andy McGee: Remember The Ninth Commandment

“Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.” James 3:1

There is a sense of greater responsibility and accountability when a pastor accuses someone of lying, especially in public.  A pastor is not just any ordinary person, according to Scripture.  He is expected to be a role model, and a good example to others of Christ-like behavior.  Care must be taken that an accusation is supported with facts, otherwise the harm to the accused can have damaging and unfair repercussions.  Many of you reading this have experienced such damaging repercussions. This is about accountability of a public figure for his public statements.  This is about discernment.  This is about honesty. This is about calling out professing Christians in order to seek correction of their errors; nothing more.  I pray that this account will be used by the Holy Spirit to touch Andy McGee’s conscience and show him the truth.

False Accusations

On July 15, Andy McGee, the leader of the Love Wins:LGBT posted on his FaceBook page a statement that accused three people of posting lies about his ministry.  He called out Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, for posting screenshots that he says were “wildly taken out of context.”   He then brought a Nazarene pastor into the mix, Jeff Allen, who wrote a critique using the same screenshots of Andy’s statements, and Andy stated that the pastor does not like Andy or his ministry. He then pointed out that I also posted the same information on my blog (which I did).  And then came the accusation (the full text at end of article):

mcGee1

And so the leader of Love Wins:LGBT wants to refute the “lies”.  On Tuesday, July 25, I posted a question to Andy in that same thread.  I asked Andy when he may be writing his rebuttal to the “lies” that have been written about him.  Soon after, I was blocked by Andy, and he deleted my question. In the same post, he says that he has reached out to “each of these men”; but after asking him a pretty reasonable question, he blocked me.

Andy recently unblocked me so that he could tag me with a new post that he published. (I am however prevented from responding to anything he says). He wrote that he is praying for the three men he has accused of lying.  However, he has yet to either support his claim, or apologize for his accusation.  Here is part of what he wrote in this new post:

mcgee 2

What Will Andy Do?

It seems to me that the leader of Love Wins:LGBT is in a difficult situation.  If he never writes his rebuttal, he fails to show how any of these three men are liars, yet his accusation still remains for all to see on his page.  If he does write a rebuttal, how will he do it, since he would be rebutting his own words?  I don’t believe that Andy McGee, an ordained pastor in the Church of the Nazarene, ever intends to rebut any “lies.”  He cannot, because his very words are what were posted!  See the post Sounding The Alarm to read what he himself has said about various matters that are in question.  And keep in mind, this group is getting the support of their district as well as from the leaders of the denomination.

Retiring General Superintendent JK Warrick suggested at a district assembly recently that Andy should probably seek some kind of approval before posting anything on his website.  Is Andy that reckless that he needs prior approval before making statements about his ministry?   I actually agree with that assessment. It was also disappointing that Dr. Warrick called out Dr. piper for stating his concerns about the ministry of Love Wins:LGBT, a concern shared by many Nazarenes and other Christians.  I would like to know what any of the current active General Superintendents feel about the appropriateness of the Love Wins_LGBT agenda, including their inappropriate exhibit at General Assembly.

It is also very disappointing that Andy McGee and other ordained pastors in the Church of the Nazarene have gone after Dr. Piper and Rev. Jeff Allen for simply posting the very words of Andy McGee and stating their opinions as to the appropriateness and purpose of that ministry.  There are few people in such leadership positions as Dr. Piper that I have a great respect for.  Hardly anyone wants to tackle such difficult issues of our time anymore, yet Dr. Piper is willing to do that, and he does it with sound biblical reasoning.  Yet we see on his page countless examples of crude, insulting personal attacks by “pastors” who cannot reason using God’s word.

They then attack Rev. Jeff Allen, a courageous pastor, for also posting the very words of Andy McGee and giving his biblical opinion.  If we had more principled pastors throughout the denomination who were not afraid to speak the truth, perhaps the Church of the Nazarene would be in much better shape.  Sadly, way too many pastors are silent about these issues. 

Yet those same pastors who criticize us fail to justify Andy’s support of same-sex marriage activists, or his applause of National Coming Out Day, or his approval of the Gay Christian Network conference, or his approval of two female homosexual activists who are married.  Why is that?  I believe they are angry that “the light has exposed the darkness”, and the true agenda of Love Wins:LGBT is coming out (no pun intended). 

Why Can’t “Yes” Be Yes, and “No” Be No, For Andy And His Followers?

On the same thread that Andy wrote his promise to “rebut the lies”, we see a question asked of Andy:

mcgee 3

Andy’s reply was quite predictable:

mcgee 4

The word of the year seems to be: polity.  “Yes, we are in line with the polity of…and blah blah blah” is now the standard, template response to every pointed and direct question asked of Love Wins:LGBT.  It’s defenders use the same language in their support of Love Wins.  You cannot get them to answer a question with clarity. When you read the thread, it is almost as if the question was horrible and unreasonable, and yet, it simply is asking for clarity!  But there will be no clarity for a while, because when it finally comes, then the unmasking will happen, and even the gullible Nazarene leaders will have to admit: the Love Wins:LGBT  ministry is a deceptive fraud.

If you read the thread, you will see some of Andy’s supporters, including Rev. Antonie Holleman, chief writer of the five Holland papers on homosexuality that will soon be translated and sent out for you to come to your own conclusions about the Holland leadership and their homosexuality agenda.  Holleman and other supporters vigorously defend Love Wins_LGBT, even while others are excoriating anyone who dares to question this organization’s intentions.  Instead, the modus operandi is always the same: false accusations and demonization of truth tellers, and certainly this latest one takes the cake!  To accuse someone of lies, when that person simply repeated the very words spoken by the accuser? Surely that takes lots of chutpza!

Did God’s Word Tell A Lie Also?

 And then we see another accusation by Love Wins:LGBT, but this time they went after God’s word itself.  One of the resolutions at General Assembly, CA-724 was passed which simply stated that all people are born male or female.  This is pretty obvious, is a reflection of the biblical account, and I shardly needed to be stated in the Nazarene Manual!  Love Wins:LGBT’s position, however, is that God was wrong about this, and that the Bible did not get it right.  There is apparently a third gender called intersex, which refutes what the Bible says. For some bizarre reason, the resolution was later rescinded and slated for “further study” by the General Superintendents.  (We know what happened in 2013 with the Human Sexuality statement, don’t we, when it was tabled for further study).  This is yet another capitulation to the homosexuality agenda.

Here is how Love Wins:LGBT stated their objections:

mcgee 5

So the apparent position of Love Wins:LGBT is that any claim that God created only male and female and nothing else, is a “plainly seen, easily identified, and blatant lie.”  These are the very words of the leadership team of this organization.  And yet, they are allowed to promulgate this nonsense and much more, and now more recently at their district assembly in Kansas City, with the blessings of the district leadership.  What does this say about discernment and leaders making right decisions?  And this leads me to a final note about all this.

What This Is Really All About

This ultimately is not about Andy McGee, or Love Wins:LGBT.  This is about a holiness denomination that has been taking the wrong turn multiple times over the last several decades, and now has ended up going further down a dark alley. And yet, this ministry is setting a dangerous precedent, and I believe it is surely becoming a powerful influence within the Church of the Nazarene. I can almost see four years from now: Andy’s organization will not be the only one at General Assembly with the rainbow colors of the homosexual affirmation movement.  Oh no, my friends.  This is just the beginning… of the end.

So where is the leadership, and what are they saying about all this?  Hey, I don’t know.  Let me know when you find them, they don’t speak to me anymore.  One thing is for sure: they are in some ways responsible for allowing the enabling of this group and letting them take hold of much of the discussion about the Church of the Nazarene and its future.  The topic of homosexuality should not be the central topic of conversation in the church, but apparently it is in good running to be just that.

This is What You Ought To Do, Andy

Andy, if you are reading this, you have publicly charged three men of posting lies about you; a very serious charge indeed.  So I await your rebuttal of the “lies.”  I also would like to understand how anyone took your own statements “wildly out of context.”  This is what you promised to do.  You need to at least keep your word.

 Otherwise, you need to repent for your own sake, and apologize to those you have maligned with your public words.  I do not hate you.  I do not even dislike you.  Believe it or not, I care about you, Andy. This is not a personal thing; it is a matter of accountability.  I urge you to repent of what you are doing, stop hiding your agenda behind pre-programmed answers, and be completely honest with the people.

LGBT, What It Really Stands For

(John Henderson)

(Preach the saving gospel to them. Stop lying to them! Stop deceiving them!)

Why don’t we just cut to the chase? Look past all of double-talk and safe words and phrases that are filled with dishonest implications.

LGBT; that “community” (a misnomer itself) that is so persecuted by mean-spirited evangelicals; that poor, misunderstood, super-sensitive group of “normal” people who are so mistreated just because God made them that way and they just cannot help it; that group of innocent folks that God welcomes just as they are with not expectations of ever being anything else but LGBT. Those are the ones!

When you break it down to its own internal evidence, it is not a bit pretty.

“L” – Lesbian: Simply defined, a “lesbian” is “a female homosexual or woman who is primarily attracted SEXUALLY to other women” [“homosexual” defines itself with the emphasis on “sexual”].
“G” – Gay: A borrowed term emitting from overt behaviors that simulate happiness in men behaving in effeminate manners. The delusion is that they are gay or joyful. A “gay” male is a male homosexual who is primarily attracted SEXUALLY to other males.
“B” – Bi-sexual: Male or female who is SEXUALLY attracted to both genders.
“T” – Transgender: Males or females who have a disingenuous gender identity or gender expression that differs from their biological gender that happens to be irreversibly locked into their DNA. This is often expressed through symptoms of Transvestic DISORDER that include, for over a period of at least 6 months, a person who has had recurrent and INTENSE SEXUAL AROUSAL from fantasies, SEXUAL urges or behaviors from cross-dressing (most often when a heterosexual male has fantasies about and/or acts out dressing up in woman’s clothing). The fantasies, SEXUAL urges and behaviors can cause clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning (source: behavioralconnections.org/poc/view_doc.php?type=doc&id=599).
Do you see a thread here? That thread is completely SEXUAL in character and always leads to such behaviors where possible, permitted, and/or encouraged. Specifically, it always involves intense sexual arousal in some form or pattern.
Are not many Nazarene leaders telling us that sexual arousal in this context is not a sin, even officially in the denomination’s Manual? They call it “orientation” but that is just a code word for lust that exists in an especially intense and sinfully focused direction. Consider Jesus’s stern condemnation concerning so much as looking at someone of the opposite gender with lust as being the same as the actual behavior and compare that to the argument in favor of it. Nothing is changed when the same lust is directed at one’s own gender, except there is a specific condemnation in the Scriptures against homosexuality (without qualifications or exceptions) that is ignored or “explained” away. That Bible-defying argument is swallowed up by biblical truth.
Whenever someone uses that acrostic in support of the homosexual agenda, they are in effect showing approval of distorted intense sexual arousals that are of themselves an abomination before God.
Not only is this condition a flagrant sin, it is also related to a medical and psychological pathology distinctive to itself.
One study found that “LGBT clients enter treatment with more severe substance abuse problems, greater psychopathology, and greater medical service utilization when compared with heterosexual clients. When the analyses were stratified based on sex, different patterns of substance use and associated psychosocial characteristics emerged for the LGBT clients” (<http://www.journalofsubstanceabusetreatment.com/…/…/abstract).
We need to stop kidding ourselves and approach LGBT as the pathological problem it is. Do they need help? Most definitely, but they cannot receive the help they need if we insist on looking the other way and pretending something else. They are drowning in serious trouble in major aspects of their lives and insensitive predators are throwing them a floating device with no rope attached. But, all sin across the board is just as bad, no matter how it expresses itself. LGBT is just one of the ways. Jesus saves from sin!
Preach the saving gospel to them, not some watered-down counterfeit that only helps drag their poor souls into hell. Stop lying to them! Stop deceiving them! Show them the Jesus who can completely transform and change their lives for much better than the filth they wallow in. Give them real hope, not some false comfort that encourages them in what they are doing to themselves.
Jesus died that they, too, might be saved—just like He died for all people. There are no allowances for sin but there is always regeneration available. That old saying applies here: “Jesus saves from the guttermost to the uttermost!” This is the way that godly, Christ-centered, scriptural love wins these lost souls.
