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!
Stephen Black was interviewed on the Arthelene Rippy Home Keepers Program on January 5, 2018 in Tampa, FL. The two segments were aired on January 23 and 24, 2018. The interviews are about "Freedom Realized - Finding Freedom From Homosexuality & Living A Life Free From Lables."
Stephen Black presented at the Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) Banquet and Teach-In.
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.
A good friend, leader in ministry, and co-laborer in ministry, Andy Comiskey, Executive Director of Desert Stream Ministires has organized a call for prayer and fasting for the sanctity of marriage through the leadership of the Holy Spirit. I am embracing this call, and I am asking others to do so as well. Below you can read Andy Comiskey's call and reasons behind the fast Please click on the hyper links for more information. __________________________...Read More ➔
Pay close attention to this well-thought-out very creative “educational-tool” created by the NEA and your tax dollars that is being promoted by the Barack Obama Administration. This video begins and ends with political iconic cartoonistic graphics that are designed to appeal to children. The beginning message is emotional. A sympathetic message of loneliness in being the President, and then immediately the message calls for responsibili...Read More ➔
Several years ago I meet Louis Hommel who had already started his journey with God in walking away from homosexuality. I had the honor and privilege to spend time serving Louis in discipleship care and support group ministry within First Stone Ministries. I am so proud of how consistent and diligent Louis has been in seeking Christ as Savior and Lord of his life and his sexuality. Many of us who have left homosexuality behind embrace the Gospel of Jesus...Read More ➔
FINALLY! A NATIONAL LEADER! A Man of God, Ken Hutcherson, the senior pastor of Antioch Bible Church in Kirkland, Washington. Pastor Hutcherson is a beautiful black man in my view, for he is a courageous man of God, but not just because he is black, but that he has godly conviction as a black man. This is God’s beauty – the feet of those who preach good news! No doubt Pastor Hutcherson will take a lot hits (verbal abuse) over speaking the trut...Read More ➔
I have been communicating over and over that the purposed hate crimes legislation was unnecessary because laws are already in place to prosecute hate crime in all 50 states. Finally someone who is much more articulate has written a terrific and very clear article on this subject. Please read Dr. Gagnon's article below. Hate crimes legislation is not about hate crimes; it is a political agenda to normalize homosexuality at the same status of equality in our society...Read More ➔
When you look at the roots of homosexuality it becomes clear, especially for those of us who have come full-circle in leaving it behind, that there is a very distorted broken element of narcissism and the desire to repair the longings for connection to the same sex parent. I must say that the Lord Jesus Christ has been very kind to me in pointing out the condition of my own emotional, relational and spiritual state in coming out of my sexual distortions and homosex...Read More ➔
I thought this was an excellent, well thought out article, with common sense thinking from Michelle Malkin, Syndicated Columnist. Michelle communicated the possibilities America faces of an ongoing horrific Islamic jihad; not merely a “man-made disaster,” but a Koran-inspired religious war. President Obama refuses to clearly communicate the centuries-old roots of this type war. President Obama claims he can win this war faster, better, and c...Read More ➔
Click here read Povia's story as told by NARTH. Read about what he has been going through with this amazing song going up on the pop charts despite the hate speech and death threats from the gay community. Povia is courageous and I applauded him! I also really like his song! Povia is merely trying to kindly communicate a story of hope without any condemnation, and yet the level of vitriol and intolerance revealed by the Italian gay community is truly...Read More ➔
I have received some very interesting emails about my previous post. Let me clarify again; I am not trying to communicate that Carrie Prejean is to be compared to the godliness of an Esther or that her sacrifice of giving up the Miss USA crown is the same level of sacrifice as Ether’s submission to an evil king. This post should be read in context with Pastor McPherson’s message and Carrie’s behind the scene testimony. This blog post went up because I...Read More ➔
Esther is the 17th book in the Bible. Carrie Prejean entered the pageant world at age 17. Esther was a winner of beauty contest to be a queen, and Carrie Prejean was in a beauty contest. I am not trying to communicate that Carrie's stand for righteousness is equal to an Esther. I am amused by God using the simple things in this life to confound the wise and even religious. Isn't interesting how God used the incredible life of Esther to save the Jews from destructio...Read More ➔
