This post is merely a small critique on Clark Whitten’s “Pure Grace” book and his doctrines that led to the closing of Exodus International and the “revelation” Alan Chambers suffers under.

A Message to Pastoral Care Leaders Processing The Gospel and “Gay Christianity.” by Stephen Black, Executive Director, First Stone Ministries The Gospel according to Jesus Christ is the same message for a gay-identified person, an idolater, an adulterer, a fornicator, a pornographer, a liar, a thief, a gossip, a slanderer or a murderer.  The message of good news–redemption into a love relationship with God–is the same for all sinners....Read More

Introduction ~by Stephen Black A perfect title by Andy Comiskey with Desert Stream Ministries: "The Whole Gospel for Gays," for God forbid that anyone would give anything less to someone, gay or otherwise, than the WHOLE Gospel.  When we sincerely care about people and knowing the holiness of God, His severity and His mercy, true believers are compelled to give the WHOLE Gospel. I am incredibly grateful that I received THE WHOLE GOSPEL in 1983 that transformed my l...Read More

A Must See Heart-Rending Life Story During the Exodus International Freedom Conference, I and the other delegates received an unexpected blessing.  We were invited by Movie Director Chad Ahrendt to screen his new film, RECONCILIATION. I’d seen the trailer and knew a bit about the story line, so I admit to some pre-conceptions.  “It will most-likely be a nice story, but I doubt it will be a real tear-jerker or pack an emotional punch as others rep...Read More
