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."
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.

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 ➔
I attended a funeral today. Very difficult funeral, as it was an untimely death of a young man only 25 years old. Joseph William Clarkson, July 7, 1990 -- April 24, 2016. This young man is the son of Kevin and Cherie Clarkson, Pastors of First Baptist Church of Moore, OK. Cherie's brother, Pastor Tim Salter's gave a closing message today. He talked about grief using the story from John's Gospel about Lazarus, from chapter 11. He sh...Read More ➔

My Truth Track is: Becoming Men of Truth and Integrity in God’s Divine Intent for Sexuality. This truth track will encourage men to embrace God’s divine intent for their sexuality. 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 ➔

Read Colossians Chapter 3 Seek the things above! Set your mind on things above! Set your mind on Heaven, where Jesus rules and reigns! Put to death your members, the desires of your flesh body (be a doer) – put to death fornication (living together and having sexual relations outside of marriage), put to death uncleanness, put to death evil lusts and passions, covetousness and idolatry! Putting to death requires doing! To be a doer of God's wo...Read More ➔
Years ago I attended a seminar conducted by Milton Green. The seminar was three to four days of Scripture reading, Bible study, worship and prayer. The seminar brought abundant freedom to thousands of people, mainly in the Southern Baptist Church during the "Fullness Movement." It was a wonderful time to be alive. There was a proclamation of truth through the scripture and praying that Milton would have the entire audience repeat. I have po...Read More ➔
My actual cup of coffee today This cup represents a very peaceful quiet morning being present to the Lord – I'm enjoying The Lord, thoroughly loving His presence in the word and in the Holy Spirit today. When I woke this morning the Holy Spirit reminded me of being present to Him as of the utmost important ‘one thing’ so that I (we) might be present to others in His power. So beloved, what gift of the Lord are you to others? What presence ...Read More ➔
