“… Having come out of homosexuality and been in ministry for over 30 years and helping people overcome [that lifestyle], I personally felt like it was a disservice, really, to the gospel and to a message of clarity and hope.”
(Steve Jordahl – OneNewsNow) A group of Christian leaders gathered in Edmond, Oklahoma, over the weekend to push back against an effort to mainstream homosexuality in the Church.
Radio talk-show host Janet Mefferd, Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality, and Stephen Black of First Stone Ministries headlined the conference called “God’s Voice: A Biblical Response to the Queering of the Church.” OneNewsNow spoke with Black, who explained that one of the purposes of the conference was to counter – using biblical truth – misinformation from another conference that claimed to be seeking common ground between the Church and “queer culture.”
“We were concerned of the messaging that was going forth from this conference called ‘Revoice’ in St. Louis this last summer,” he shared. “And the messaging was that the church needs to embrace this new terminology called ‘sexual minorities.'”
