[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:
- 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:
- By showing you who Sara Cunningham is (in her own words) and what she is promoting, including advocating for same sex marriage.
- 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.
- 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 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 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:
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.
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: email@example.com. Here is also the name and email address of the District Superintendent for Andy McGee’s district: Dr. Edward L. Estep. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is also being sent to every district in the United States and Canada.
