In My Own Journey, He Has Won My Heart

“In our raping, molesting, defiled, diseased, greedy, impoverished, violent, warring, mismanaged planet with natural and man-made disasters, people don’t so much doubt that there is GOD; they do, however, suffer doubt that HE is GOOD.

In the face of all this, and my own sufferings, it’s no wonder God does not demand that I trust Him. No, instead, He invites me to learn of Him. In my own journey, He has won my heart. What might He do to win back yours?”

One, Two, Three, Go Be Free!

“So I began my journey with the Lord, and I always say I just wished that he’d waved his magic wand. ‘One, two, three, go be free! Go be straight, date, and mate; bing! But it didn’t happen, but what He did begin to do was to give me grace to crucify flesh, and He began to take me on a path that I would have never imagined. … My wonderful wife Karen of almost twenty-five years … didn’t marry me because she thought that her love could fix my homosexuality. She knew better. But she did say that I grew into a man who earned trust that she could respect.”

Heaven, Hell & Homosexuality

“Well my gay friends in Hawaii who had gotten married to each other, I wrote them an anniversary card, and they wrote me a letter saying, ‘Don’t let everybody else tell you what to believe about heaven, hell, and homosexuality. Do your own research into the Bible and, if you do, you will discover what we have: the teachings of the gay church sounded really great, but as we read God’s Word objectively He leads us in truth, and we felt convicted and convinced that the teaching from the gay church is an error … We’ve left our gay marriage and our lifestyle and we are now born again and praying for you.”

Seeing Sin as a Good Thing

“Unbelief doesn’t see God as the ultimate good. So it can’t see sin as the ultimate evil. It instead sees sin as a good thing and thus God’s commands as a stumbling block to joy. In believing the Devil, I didn’t need a pentagram pendant to wear, neither did I need to memorize a hex or two. All I had to do was trust myself more than God’s Word. I had to believe that my thoughts, my affections, my rights, my wishes, were worthy of absolute obedience and that in laying prostrate before the flimsy throne I’d made for myself, that I’d be doing a good thing.”

Sacred Boundaries

#ThankYouRavi
“Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before; and this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth.

The Identity We Will Give Ourselves & The Life That We Inevitably Live

“It is the identity that we ascribe to God out of doubt or faith in His Scriptures
that will determine the identity we will give ourselves and ultimately the life that we inevitably live.
If He is the Creator, then we are created. If He is Master, then we are servants.
If He is love, then we are loved. If He is omnipotent, then we are not as powerful as we think.
If He is omniscient, then there is nowhere to hide. If He cannot lie, then His promises are all true.
It is faith in the truths of God’s character that has the power to completely revolutionize
how our lives are lived out.”
