California has proposed a new law that would make counseling services, conferences, books, and resources that seek “to change an individual’s sexual orientation… [including] efforts to change behaviors or gender expression, or to eliminate or reduce sexual or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same sex” would no longer be available for purchase in the state of California. The bill, AB2943, seeks to declare as fraud any good or service that suggests sexual orientation can change. 

In a new book by Ken Williams and Elizabeth Woning, Co-Founders of Equipped To Love, 37 men and women offer their stories on behalf of Californians to protect their rights to live according to their personal convictions.

There are few safe places for those who once identified as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or queer/questioning to publicly share their experiences of leaving homosexuality. Many who were contacted were unwilling to make their stories public due to the intense efforts some take to publicly shame them.

by Pastor Phillip Lee
No one chooses to be gay

I have heard, and continue to hear, the above-mentioned statement on a frequent basis. Each and every time, I wonder, “Do they really understand what they are stating?”

The statement, I believe, needs some fleshing-out and clarification because it is often completely misunderstood and misused.

At the age of 13 years old, I became acutely aware of my same-sex attraction. However, it was not until many, many years later I embraced, decided, and clothed myself in what many refer to as “the gay-identity.”

Let me say it this way, “Homosexual tendencies are discovered but the gay-identity is chosen and decided upon.”

The two are worlds apart and dramatically different.

Previously gay-identified men and women, that now have new lives in Christ, know exactly what I am talking about.

Thirty-three years ago, surrendering my life (which included my sexuality to Christ Jesus), in church for the first time in my life and constantly having my nose buried in God’s Word, homosexual practice no longer was an option or a desire.

But, what to do about the gay-identity factor?

“You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; and to be made new in the attitude of your mind.” (Ephesians 4:22-24)

“And this is what some of you were.” (1 Corinthians 6:11)

Once again, a choice was before me.

Would I continue to allow feelings, emotions and personal experience dictate my identity or embrace the Lordship of Christ and the Authority of Scripture to define my true identity?

Well, here we are 33 years down the road and I have never, ever regretted my decision to follow Christ and the truth of whom He says I am.

rr-gay-awareness-schottGay Awareness by Landon Schott exposes false teaching and deception, that have created a false identity through the lens of sexuality instead of the eyes of God’s Word.

Landon Schott addresses: What the Bible actually says about marriage, homosexuality, and sexuality; contradictions between the gay lifestyle and the Christ-centered lifestyle; how men and women can experience deliverance and freedom; and mistakes the Church makes when addressing the gay community.

Did God make people gay? Does God love homosexuals? Will people have to deal with same-sex attraction their entire lives? Landon Schott brings truth and clarity to sexual confusion, using over 400 Scripture references to reveal the heart of the Father and mind of Christ.

From the clamor of the evening news to the hush within a judge’s courtroom, battles continue to rage regarding homosexual practice. The implications for society and the Church are profound. Yet many people of faith remain confused still wondering and asking, “How do I respond in love to the same-sex attracted individual?”

Unfortunately, many today are still siding so far on the Biblical “truth-side” regarding homosexual practice that “grace” is too often not being extended which dismisses the heart of the Gospel, leaves the individual without hope, does not exemplify our Perfect Role Model, Jesus Christ (John 1:14), and ultimately does not fulfill The Great Commission.

Truthless grace accomplishes nothing.

His Way Out Ministries continues to offer training sessions which provide Biblical truths about homosexuality with each and every training always emphasizing and encouraging a Christian response.

Educational Workshops

Demystifying Homosexuality: Questions and Answers

An educational workshop designed to help clear up the misconceptions many have today about homosexuality. Why should sharing the Gospel to a gay person be approached differently than to anyone else? Scripturally-speaking: what do we know about homosexuality? Why doesn’t God just go ‘Poof!’ and make it go away? Is just saying homosexuality is a sin good enough? Does it matter why the person you love is homosexual? The workshop offers biblical and compassionate responses to homosexuality for parents, pastors, co-workers, a neighbor, or maybe just a good friend.

Homosexuality and the Reality of Change

Pastor Phillip Lee, Founder and Executive Director of His Way Out Ministries, brings a wealth of personal, as well as pastoral experience to this workshop. Pastor Lee will share his testimony, as well as discuss the questions: Can homosexuals really change? How long does change take? Will the person become heterosexual? How do I respond to pro-gay arguments?

The Myths of Homosexuality

If you’re like most Christians, you’re puzzled by homosexuality. You want to reach out in some way – but how? The first step is to become knowledgeable. This workshop helps clear up the many misconceptions most Christians have about homosexuality. Is homosexuality the worst of all sins? Is homosexuality genetic? Is homosexuality just a choice? Will marriage really fix a homosexual?

We all found the time to be very meaningfully spent and your personal sharing and commentary on the issue of same-sex attraction, choices involved in terms of adopting a gay identity and pursuing gay life were very helpful in expanding our understanding of these complex issues.

Pastor Steve Downs, Executive Pastor, River Lakes Community Church

There’s Something I Need To Tell You!
(When a Loved One Confesses They Are Homosexual)

What do you say and do when a loved one confesses they are homosexual? This workshop offers practical steps and information to help you understand your loved one, guidance to keep the lines of communication open without compromising your beliefs, and presents the biblical position on homosexuality.

Reaching Gay Youth

While the number of youth embracing homosexuality is alarming, there are many ways in which you can reach them. This workshop centers on why youth should question homosexuality and what role you can play in help bringing that about. What if people think I’m gay? Is there a difference between homosexual temptation and homosexual sin? How do I respond to the ‘born gay’ argument? What is the key to overcoming homosexuality?

I was gratified by the degree to which we seem to see and understand these issues in a very similar manner. I am grateful to have gotten to know you and may God richly bless and use you and your ministry in the lives of many.

Ian Boyne, Host of Religious Hard Talk, Kingston, Jamaica

Understanding Homosexuality

Is change possible? What causes homosexuality? Does God condemn a person for being attracted to members of their own sex? Is there a difference between homosexual tendencies and a gay identity? What are some of the battles each man and each woman will face in overcoming same-gender attraction? The workshop offers biblical and compassionate responses to homosexuality for parents, pastors, co-workers, a neighbor, or maybe just a good friend.

Homosexuality and the Church

The theological debate over what God’s Word says about homosexuality has become quite a phenomenon. Many concerns and questions must be addressed in churches wishing to reach out to homosexuals and their families. As a pastor, how do I lead our church to effectively love homosexuals? How do I introduce a gay-identified person to Christ? Is there a difference between the terms gay and homosexual? How does my church evaluate if we are handling homosexuality appropriately?

For more information or to schedule an educational workshop at your church, please contact His Way Out Ministries.

There is no charge for any Ministry Services of His Way Out Ministries.

His Way Out Ministries – Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies

Dedicated to raising awareness, educating, encouraging and equipping The Body of Christ in Trinidad and Tobago and throughout the Caribbean to minister to those who struggle with unwanted same-sex attraction.

Our concern is regarding the issue of homosexuality and we seek to minister to those within the Church and Islands throughout the Caribbean, with the truth of Scripture, the power of testimony and the dialog of issues.

We are committed to effectively and compassionately communicating God’s heart concerning sexual brokenness and wholeness, while disputing the unchangeable nature of sexual orientation.

We affirm that all persons need the ministry of the Church in their struggle for sexual wholeness, and we commit ourselves to that end. Our position rests on the Authority of Scripture versus the interpretations of some of the social sciences.

All Ministry Services are centered on the Biblical foundations of compassion, integrity, and dependence on God.

We believe through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and the healing power of the Holy Spirit, often mediated by extended and competent ministry, prayer, and a caring Christian community, the sexually broken can experience transformation towards wholeness.

All of us at His Way Out Ministries truly covet your prayers. You make it possible for His Way Out Ministries to reach around the world with a message of hope, healing, and transformation in Christ Jesus.

Season 3, Episode 16
Will Winn, ordained minister, friend, ministry partner, highly educated in Theology, Ministry, Christian Education, and Church Administration, join me for part two of our discussion of the huge winds of social change that continue to blow aimlessly across America.

Same-sex marriage, I-feel-and-therefore-I-am-entitled, men in girls bathrooms, the on-going HIV/AIDS crisis, sexual addiction, pornography epidemic, gender confusion, sexual abuse, sexual identity confusion, etc.

The truth of the matter is the crisis we now face has existed for decades with the downward spiral beginning with our accepting and welcoming Jesus into our theology but not into our sexuality. The Church cannot and must not apologize for moral and ethical holy boundary lines for living. All faithful followers of Christ Jesus are called to a higher standard.
