Together We Can Make a Difference

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world.” (John 15:18)

A relentless wave of fear has, and is, sweeping into the Body of Christ.

Today, we are far, far removed from homosexuality being the crisis. Today, anything goes. There is no right or wrong. Not only this, but personal morals are now equated with civil and legal rights.

In many respects the dividing line seems to be whether or not the Bible is inspired and without error in its original delivery to the prophets from God, or whether it is just a collection of myths and man-made opinions. Largely due to complacency, we are now witnessing, and shall continue to witness, the following, if we, The Church, do not stand up and do exactly what Christ Jesus called and commanded us to do.

The relentless assault and further denigration of Biblical authority.
We have witnessed and we shall continue to witness a complete and total loss of a coherent definition of family.
Already widespread, especially in America, we shall continue to witness the exploitation of children.

Many are now standing so far on the side of grace that truth is being neglected, if not totally dismissed. Truthless grace accomplishes absolutely nothing. Since when should a culture war dictate to The Church what the Church should believe? God’s Word transcends any culture.

In terms of The Church, the Church’s integrity is compromised when those professing to be Christian misrepresent Christianity. When people claiming to follow Christ misrepresent Him through immorality, Christians need to speak up and present the Truth. We have and we are straying much too far from our accepting the Bible as the Word of God, as the sole authority in all matters of faith and practice.

It is not too late.

I believe, when The Church is functioning at its best, meaning The Church holds to the Lordship of Christ and to the Truth and Authority of Scripture, the Church “then” positively influences society and culture.

Where does our surrender and our allegiance begin? By returning to…

“Greater is He who is in you…” (1 John 4:4)
“…we are more than conquerors…” (Romans 8:37)
“…we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us…” (Philippians 4:13)
“I will praise your name for your loving kindness and your truth, for you have magnified your word above your name.” (Psalm 138)

Together, we can make a difference. Where does our surrender and allegiance to Jesus begin? By putting God’s Word in its proper place.

Believing in Him and You,

Answering Pro-Gay Theology

Argument: If gays didn’t ask for their orientation, then God must have created it, so how could He condemn it?

Response: There is nothing in Scripture to suggest that if a thing seems natural it is inevitably God-given. There is, however, “much” in Scripture which condemns many “natural” states and desires.

The natural man does not receive the things of God. (I Corinthians 2:14).
(You) were (before conversion) by nature the children of wrath (Ephesians 2:3).
The carnal mind is enmity against God, for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be (Romans 8:7).

Educational Workshop: “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?

Scripturally-speaking, what do we know about homosexuality?
God’s Word doesn’t change. God’s Word transcends culture.

Does it matter ‘why’ the person you love is homosexual?
Whatever you think causes homosexuality will possibly affect the way you respond to your loved one.

Going on as a parent.
When we love someone who is homosexual, we want to know why: Why does he feel this way? What caused it? And, did I have anything – or nothing to do with it?

Setting boundaries.
Clarifying the significant difference between ‘acceptance and approval.’

God is still more than able to set men and women free from the snare of homosexuality.

Understanding homosexuality.
Change is a cooperative venture between God and ourselves through the power of the Holy Spirit.

As a Christian you are not just representing yourself to your loved one. As a Christian, you are representing Christ.

Pastor Phillip Lee, His Way Out Ministries & Pasror Roger Spradlin, Valley Baptist Church

Kingston, Jamaica: Forum Discussion on Human Sexuality

A Forum to discuss the socially sensitive subject, “Who Am I? The Sexual Identity Crisis.”

How best can we define ourselves sexually in a sex-obsessed world, Church, State and society?

Sexual Identity is one of the most relevant topics of our day; most know someone who is gay-identified. The Jamaica Forum will challenge the popular school of thought adopted by some Christians and non-Christians alike that homosexuality is the worst of all sins and ultimately accepting the idea that if one is ‘straight’ (and/but promiscuous or unfaithful to their spouse) that they are ‘OK’ with God.

What constitutes one’s sexuality? What are the cultural implications of one’s sexuality and how can the Gospel effectively and satisfactorily answer questions surrounding sexuality? Did God really make some straight or gay or can one “pray the spirit of gayness away?” What about Christians struggling with these feelings, can they truly profess to be Christians? How do I respond to friends and relatives struggling with homosexual attraction and how can the Church not contribute to the already rapidly growing homophobic culture? How can one remain faithful and obedient to God while dealing with homosexual feelings or other temptations/addictions and what tools are helpful in being free and staying free?

Ultimate goals of the Forum are:

To save men from the kingdom of darkness through sharing of the Gospel truth.
To create opportunities for young people to be mentored.
To educate the audience on being confident about the Word of God in any scenario and being able to give a defense of their faith.

The Forum will be held at the Mona Heights Chapel in Kingston, Jamaica. Pastor Phillip Lee has been invited to offer the Opening and Closing Remarks.

The Forum is offered and organized by OpenMic Productionz Jam – Express, Empower, Transform is a platform which gives Christians the ability and opportunity to speak freely in the context of the Holy Scriptures.
