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!

Shame, that is, toxic shame that puts a believer in bondage must be released in confession, receiving prayer and release in the power of the Holy Spirit. On November 5, 2017 Dr. Sam Storms, Senior Pastor at Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City gave a powerful message on freedom of toxic shame.

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.

Often people of varied church affiliations use the same terminology, but may mean something totally different by their terms. Multitudes around the world say they are "Born Again" and yet their life-style demonstrates that their definition is one contrary to biblical teaching. I write this today, with the deepest concern for those who walk in bondage to sin. Jesus said "unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God" [John 3:3] and "most assuredly, I say to y...Read More ➔
John Wesley lived in the 1700's, and was perhaps England's most famous evangelist and preacher. His writings, preaching, and life ministry have made a tremendous impact on the Church as a whole. This article was taken from "The Complete Works of John Wesley," published by Baker Book House. As our brother John urged, read this message with a prayerful, open heart. "If anyone wishes to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me." - Luk...Read More ➔
I was recently reminded of the importance of the ministry and it's mission were I serve in this beautiful music video called, “A Hallelujah Christmas.” The Gospel of Jesus Christ changes lives, this is the “Hallelujah” for us at Christmas! A Hallelujah Christmas - Cloverton Music Video Unfortunately there is a fervent shift to pervert the Gospel and grace of God to include the message of “gay Christianity” from many sou...Read More ➔

The second video here is also Laura Leigh giving her testimony at the 2013 National Restored Hope Network Conference in Oklahoma City. Laura Leigh is the Director of Women's Min...Read More ➔
For over ten years I lived the homosexual lifestyle and for 34 years I have not. And there are very good reasons for that difference. To those who suggest that I never was homosexual, my response is, “Does sleeping with over 1,000 men count?" Oh yes. I was homosexual, though like most, I never wanted to have such attractions. I saw the narcissism and arrested emotional development all around me, and in me. Guys flitting around like Peter Pan were sometimes cute ...Read More ➔
by Stephen Black (2010) Apostle Peter warned us that scoffers and mockers would come on the scene with louder and louder voices in the last days. Ruled by their own fleshly desires, appetites and seduced by demonic powers, Peter warned that the scoffers and mockers would raise a ruckus against those who desire to live godly, leaving behind their true devotion to God’s word for lifestyles of sin and pleasure. “Where is the promise of Jesus’ deliver...Read More ➔
Do Not Marvel, Nor Be Dismayed Brothers and Sisters! Jesus Warned Us, and So Did the Apostle Paul. Many will fall away from the faith in the last days. Jesus reminded us and said: Be careful that no one misleads you, deceiving you and leading you into error. (Especially the idea of gay Christianity). For many will come in, they will look just like sheep. They will come-in on the strength of My name, appropriating the name which belo...Read More ➔
