A Biblical answer to what St. Paul would say to the American Church Embracing So-called “Gay Christianity” and “Spiritual Friendships” in our day. “Gay Christianity” is being promoted at an alarming rate in several places in the Church worldwide.
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."
You might be under a perverse-hyper-grace teacher if you hear these things being taught in your church or community. This is very important as it is a segue to the promotion of “gay Christianity.” I write today with the deepest of sorrow and concern for what I’ve seen taking place in the Church concerning the embracing of “gay Christianity.” I have taken some inventory of the causes, and made a list of cautions below. The main cause is poo...Read More ➔
- A Christian Paradigm Shift on Suffering – For the Mature In God - ONLY IN THIS LIFE can we give a real sacrifice of worship and praise... and the more difficult or complex the trial, the sweeter the offering to God can be -- IF -- you will worship the LORD in the midst of great suffering, being fully surrendered in obedience to Him. When the suffering is the greatest, especially in something like the unexpected death of an adult child (our Charity Ho...Read More ➔

Scandalous Good News by Andrew Comiskey A Forward by Stephen Black: I am always on the hunt to find messages that will really prophetically rivet my soul to its core. I have recently been touched by two messages that seem to be bookends to what is relevant in our day. I am always looking for messages that will speak in context to the ministry we provide at First Stone Ministries; as we want to be a source of life-giving ministry and hope to the ...Read More ➔
Which do you choose? Pusski or Aslan? Stats say that 70% of church-going men are viewing porn on a weekly basis; they are covered up in shame and darkness! Most men in the Church today are like "Pusski" – the domesticated couch cat, pictured here. Please pray with me! Let's pray for the men, our brothers in the Church, to be like Aslan - A Lion - like Jesus who is the Lion of the Tribe of Judah. One unfortunate problem I've continued to run into (especially amon...Read More ➔
Thinking about what a book cover design might look like in preparing for the Restored Hope Network Annual Conference. I went through the first 10 years of data (1989-1999) last night that I have received back from our survey results, statistics that will ultimately be in my book. I am preparing for my conference breakout, and I am very excited about the initial findings. The results are FULL OF HOPE! This is so important since the implosion of Exodus and it's failed lead...Read More ➔

He talked about grief using the story from John's Gospel about Lazarus, from chapter 11. He sh...Read More ➔

The goal will be to embrace the Father’s truth and to be equipped with practical Biblical steps for freedom where one w...Read More ➔
