If gays and lesbians could not be permanently cured or changed, then God would not put His commandments against homosexuality in His Word. Therefore, we lie on God, spreading the Word that He is not capable to deliver people from sin He does not condone. Furthermore, we would like for you to look at all of the testimonies we have placed on our Ex-homosexuals page. Then, you tell us, there is no way homosexuals can be completely delivered and set free. There are too many of ex-gays and ex-lesbians whom made the decision to turn their lives around and did not want to go back for deliverance through Jesus Christ not to work. In our opinion, the homosexuals whom claim therapy did not work for them could be making excuses, because we have too many reformed homosexuals that say they have left homosexuality and do not have any desire to be with the same sex anymore. Therefore, it is so very clear, once you make up in your mind to let go of any sin, you can be delivered and set free by the blood of Jesus. Homosexuality is no different than a smoker putting down a cigarette for good, an alcoholic putting down his or her liquor, or a drug attic putting down crack cocaine, you just have to get tired enough and make a permanent decision to let it go. If not, then you obviously loved it more than God.
Exodus claims they are moving toward discipleship, but-how can the organization lead as disciples, if they are not believing Jesus can set these souls free from homosexuality? Therefore, they should no longer reach out to other sinners, if they have chosen to believe homosexuals whom claim they cannot change. It would not be fair for them to try to witness to any other groups of sinners if they do not take these following holy scriptures, seriously.
Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality
- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
- Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
- Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
- Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
