I wanted to give some insight to the “Different Kind of Missionary” found in those who give of their lives for Jesus in an “ex-gay” ministry. I want you to really think about what the ministers in “ex-gay” ministry are facing in this day as a very different kind of mission! First Stone Ministries, along with 40 ministries like ours, and several counseling agencies within the Restored Hope Network, are laboring together in helping individuals, churches, families, and friends to process through all the cultural ambiguity, misunderstandings, and lies about the sexual revolution of all things LGBTQ+. It is overwhelming!
Reminded of the prophecy concerning Art Katz. He gave a warning in 1980 about Exodus International. A really good reminder that God is sovereign and HE KNOWS!

First Stone Ministries' Staff traveled by SUV across the Southwestern part of the USA to San Diego, CA to participate in the Restored Hope Network Conference. This is an update about our adventure there and back.
I like Camilla Paglia's statement: "Homosexuality is not normal. On the contrary, it is a challenge to the norm. Nature exists whether academics like it or not. And in nature, procreation is the single relentless rule. That is the norm. Our sexual bodies were designed for reproduction (by God, I would add). No one is born gay. The idea is ridiculous. Homosexuality is an adaptation, not an inborn trait."
Enjoy these thorough and scholarly videos on the subject of the Bible and homosexuality. Dr. Robert Gagnon, Associate Professor of the New Testament at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary gives an amazing presentation at Skyline Church in San Deigo, CA. Based upon Dr. Gagnon's fantastic work, "The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics", this excellent video presentation is presented here to give clear answers from the Bible texts and Bible hermeneutics.
