3 Reasons Ex-Gay Ministries seem so difficult within the black church

Ex-gay ministries within the black church may seem very difficult for a number of reasons, simply because there are many pastors and other types of ministers whom like for homosexuality to be discreet.  Some may not like for ex homosexuals to admit their deliverance, because of their own spiritual discretion, in other wards they do not want anyone to find out about them.   Secondly, it could be because they simply do not think anyone can be delivered from homosexuality.  Thirdly, it could be because they agree with homosexuality, especially in this era when it has become somewhat acceptable.   However, being able to bring homosexuals into the kingdom of God can be difficult for any of those above reasons and God wants to make it easier and just as acceptable as the alleged sin, itself.

Now, we will deal with this specific type of ministry, because we feel this could be the reason for a great rebellion now in America and even in foreign countries, regarding homosexuality.  God no longer wants the black church whom identify with being full gospel, holiness to avoid ex-gay ministries.   He desires for them to stop making mockery in their sermons, so those whom desire to change will not be offended and think God does not love them. They will never understand who God really is, if they do not see and hear love, but we should not sugar coat anything when preaching against homosexuality.   Homosexuals should understand that the alleged sin is an abomination, according to God's Word, but it is just like any other sin, such as fornication, adultery, idolatry, witchcraft, backbiting, murder, theft and others.  They should understand although God loves them and does not love them any less than any other sinner, they are not excluded or free to be gay or lesbian.   They must abide by biblical scriptures just like anyone else, if they expect to the kingdom of heaven.   The twisted theology for many years is to preach against sin, but not enough acceptance in the black church for those whom desired to surrender to Christ.   After some people acknowledged what an ex-gay or an ex-lesbian person was in the past, they refused to show love or even have a conversation with them.  For example, they may have shunned them whenever they greeted them after church services.  The preacher whom continues to single out homosexuality and harshly preach against it Sunday after Sunday as their church members instigate may lose ex-gays and ex-lesbians, as soon they began to drift away and return to the community where there seems to be more love and acceptance, which is the trick of the enemy.  Sometimes, within congregations of full gospel ministries, there is a lot of hypocrisy, because the pastor and/or his wife, including some church members may have been gay themselves.  Therefore, when an ex-gay or an ex-lesbian person enters into the sanctuary and has nothing to hide about their past, it makes them uncomfortable and so, they to embarass or humiliate them, which may cause them to turn against God.   Saints of God, this cycle has been in the black church for too many years and if we desire for homosexuals to turn around and let go of their alleged sin, it must stop.  There must be love within the black church for ex-gays, ex-lesbians, including ex-transgender people without hypocrisy.

Now SCR readers, let's deal with this second group, those 'so-call' saved folks whom think homosexuals cannot be saved, this category may also fall into the first one, the black church that label themselves full gospel, but only welcomes, the drug-attics, drug-dealers and alcoholics to salvation.   You cannot really believe that only certain groups of people can be saved.  If you think God will only deliver those whom use or sell narcotics, you really do not know Jesus Christ.  There are many ex-homosexuals whom have chose to turn their lives around, but ex-ministry maybe difficult for them, when other ministers think there is no way gays and lesbians can become new creatures in Christ.  Just like you believe God will place homosexuals in hell, there could be a place for certain pastors whom think they have the power to deny salvation to homosexuals.   Homosexuals have the right to be set free just like anyone else and when you act as though you can take their right to testify away from them, you cause them to become hurt, angry and return back to alleged sin, because they may become discouraged, after trying to expand their ministriy or even living as a straight person.   Saints of God, this is God's Kingdom and if he wants to accept ex-homosexuals, that's His business, not yours.  You cannot think homosexuals must die that way, because if you do, you maybe the cause if they do not remain within the true body of Christ.   Please do not ever exclude homosexuals from salvation, because salvation is for anyone, regardless of the sin they commit, except for going against the Holy Spirit, which is the only sin that cannot be ever forgiven, which is in Matthew 12:31.  Therefore, if you have a church, it would be a good thing to include a division of ministry for those whom desire to be delivered and set free from homosexuality.

Thirdly, as you know we are living in a day and age when homosexuality has become widely acceptable and the hypocrisy and hate within some black church could be the reason why there is a great rebellion today.   Saints of God, it is time to show love, but not fall into the trick of the enemy to accept homosexuality as being right.  According to these following scriptures at the end of this post, it is very wrong to be gay or lesbian.  You cannot actually think you are okay with God, if you just embrace the alleged sin.   You whom are gay affirming and once were full gospel preachers, you cannot possibly think you are loving people by telling them they can make it heaven, although they are gay or lesbian.  According to Minister Mary K. Baxter, she actually witnessed the lake of fire, the eternal place filled with demons the Bible talks about and she saw skeletal bones burning and screaming for their family not to go there, they shouted, 'tell my family not to come here!'   Therefore, if you think it is okay for you to now change your ministry into a gay affirming corporation, you are making the worse mistake of your life.    If you think it is now time for you to come out of the closet as a gay pastor, because it is a popular thing and accepted by our president, you are making the worst mistake of your life.   Therefore, you do not love people and you certainly can't love yourself doing something God says He will send you to hell for, which is biblical scripture clearly states in His Word.  You couldn't possibly think this is the time for you to come out of the closet and stop preaching against homsexuality, because God is finally excusing it, because we have a black (bi-racial) president who accepts it, if this is you, you are setting yourself up to face God's eternal judgement of fire and brimstone.   Your type of ministry has no place for those whom desire to be set free from homosexuality and of course, you really do not support ex-gay ministries, so God is going to give you a limited time to submit and repent.  Instead of welcoming ex-gays and ex-lesbians, you have chosen what is popular, which makes God very angry at you.

In conclusion, of course there are more various reasons why it is so difficult for ex-ministries to exist within the black church, but these main three are Satan's tools that have kept homosexuals from coming to Jesus Christ and it must be stopped now.    Jesus wants all sinners saved and He wants them to be able to have the priviledge he gave to anyone else.   It is not fair to make it difficult for those whom admit they have been saved from homosexuality.  If we can get these main three blockages out of the way, it is our assumption, we will begin to see a change not only within the black church, but also within other churches within America and even abroad.   Then, some of the gay and lesbian community will began to respect those whom disagree and do not embrace homosexuality and begin to see the true light of Jesus Christ.

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."
