In light of many local churches and pastors becoming Gay Affirming Churches, we unapologetically declare the fact that we are an EX–GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
Paul said, in 1 Corinthians 6:11…
“And such WERE some of you. But you WERE washed, but you WERE sanctified, but you WERE justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
There are those that live in hopelessness unnecessarily. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides hope for those trapped in the sin of homosexuality. Through the sinless, shed blood of Jesus, by His grace, and mercy, you can experience new life in Christ to prevail over the sin of homosexuality.
The intent is not about heterosexuality. The intent is to help you, through the grace of God, to willingly move you from sin, to holiness, to help you become whole in Christ.
Even if you have an STD, or HIV/AIDS, it is not over.
The love of God is still extended to you no matter what you have.
Prevailing Word Ministries stands ready to minister to you no matter what you have.
Provided that you never lose hope, repent of your sins, and obey the good news of Jesus Christ. We are here to help you, and all who come to receive eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, as opposed to receiving the wages of sin, which is death, or eternal separation from the Lord forever.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of the Church.
We believe that the Lord calls all sinners to repent, believe the gospel, and be saved.
That includes all fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals, bisexuals, catamites, sodomites, lesbians, and other involved in sexual immorality. His love, grace, and mercy is extended to all who repent and come to Christ, having their sins washed away by the blood of the Lamb.
We welcome all who desire to repent and be saved. Even if you do not want to repent, you are welcome to attend our local church to hear the unadulterated Word of the living God.
Those who practice sin are not excluded from attending our church, however, it is only through repentance of sins that a person can be saved, delivered, and set free from the bondages of all sin, including the sin of homosexuality.
The sexual immorality events that confront the church require that we make a Biblical statement so as not to give any hint of an appearance of condoning that which God condemned and declare as a detestable sin.
Also, it is folly to attempt to lower the stigmatization associated with homosexuality to lessen the sin of homosexuality to a level playing field. Sodom and Gomorrah is proof of what is in the mind of God regarding the sin of homosexuality. Few realize that any stigmatization practicing homosexuals may feel, is truly the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to convince the world of sin according to John 16:8-9.
As with all sinners, suppression of conviction is nothing more than remorse that will never turn into repentance until godly sorrow comes.
First, the Holy Bible is the infallible, inerrant Word of God.
To attempt to minimize, reduce, adjust, or alter the Word of God to exclude the sin of homosexuality is a bold and blatant attempt to question and put on trial the God of heaven, and His Word. To mislead people by using the Scriptures in making erroneous claims that fail the test of contextual or harmony of Scripture regarding the sin of homosexuality, is a misguided and miscalculated attempt to make it appear that God was wrong and sinful man was right.
The God of heaven and earth and the Bible was here before all of us, and should Jesus tarry, the God of heaven and earth, and the Bible will be here after us.
This brings about the eternally established facts that….
God cannot change. Malachi 3:6 says…
“I am the Lord, I change not.”
God cannot lie. Numbers 23:19 and says…
“God is not a man, that He should lie, nor the son of man, that He should repent.”
God’s Word is eternally established in heaven. Psalm 119:89 says…
“Forever, O Lord, Your Word is settled in heaven.”
Therefore, God’s position against all unrighteousness, including the sin of homosexuality, is clearly established. His position to redeem man is also established.
Second, the Bible is clear regarding the sin of homosexuality.
Leviticus 18:22 tells us that “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
Many opponents of the Bible will attempt to assert that the Old Testament does not apply today because of the New Testament.
This is error.
Many will assert the flawed argument that the laws of the Old Testament were done away with when the New Testament was established. This fallacy serves only one purpose, the continuation of sin.
In the Old Testament, there were three types of law given to the children of Israel.
1. Moral. 2. Ceremonial. 3. Dietary.
The one aspect of law that carried over into the New Testament is “moral law.”
For instance, Hebrews 13:4 says, “Marriage in honorable among all and the bed undefiled, but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.”
Therefore, fornication and adultery is morally wrong in the Old and New Testament. Because it is true that the sin of fornication and adultery is morally wrong, the sin of homosexuality is equally wrong as with all other moral sins.
Some will argue that nothing was said about God judging the sin of homosexuality after Sodom and Gomorrah. Quite the contrary. The aggressive tactics of LGBT extremists will go as far as the universe (if they could) to discredit the Bible and anyone that stands for the truth that is eternally embedded in the Word of God.
LGBT has concluded that the Bible is outdated, archaic, and no longer acceptable for the times we are currently living in. They declare that the church is outdated and need to catch up to the times the world is living in.
Quite the opposite is true.
Man is behind eternity and needs to catch up with God through repentance and receiving eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
The destruction of lawless people during the days of Noah and the destruction of homosexuals living in Sodom and Gomorrah, and the surrounding cities, was conclusive proof of God’s eternal abhorrence of all sexual immorality.
1 Corinthians 6:9 says…
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
The list in this verse declares that entrance will be denied to those that practice these sins.
Ceremonial law and dietary law were done away with according to Colossians 2:11-23.
Thirdly, consequential judgment is imposed upon all that practice lawlessness.
For sexual immorality, STDs come upon those that transgress Genesis 2:24 and Hebrews 13:4.
For those that practice the sin of homosexuality, Romans 1:18-32 clearly states that when a man or woman engage in the sin of homosexuality, they receive “…in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”
The Gay Man’s Disease, changed now to be known as HIV/AIDS is the “penalty of their error which was due.” The change occurred because of the negative stigmatization applied to those that practice the detestable sin of homosexuality.
As a result, collateral damage is upon the whole world. From children born to parents practicing the sin of homosexuality, or bisexuality, to accidental needle pricks, intravenous drug use, tainted blood supplies for blood transfusions, and other means of contracting the AIDS virus.
It is undeniably documented that the primary means of contracting the AIDS virus will always be MSM.
This is further evidence that the sin of homosexuality is an abomination or detestable because of the consequential results of such perversion.
Fourth, the error of declaring the sin of homosexuality a sexual orientation, racism, bigotry, or discrimination.
The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 60’s was about racial equality, not sexual orientation. Black people were denied basic rights that were already afforded to every person born in the United States. Segregation and Jim Crow laws were used to suppress Black people after president Lincoln gave the Emancipation Proclamation.
Sadly, and abhorrently, LGBT perverted and polluted the NAACP and other Black institutions by coercion and without any doubt, money, to see to it that the sin of homosexuality and those that practice this ungodly sin, has its place as those that are being discriminated against. LGBT successfully manipulated Civil Rights to the degree that it is no longer about sin, but bigotry.
Fifth, political correctness vs. Biblical correctness.
It is politically incorrect for God fearing people to preach or share that homosexuality is a sin as declared by God in the Holy Bible. In a politically correct world declaring homosexuality as a sin is hateful, bigotry, and discrimination. This is a cold, calculated attempt to silence the voice of righteousness so that the sin of homosexuality could be accepted as a normal lifestyle.
However, we all know that homosexuality is not normal because of the consequences imposed upon those that practice the sin of homosexuality. Furthermore, anyone living in America has equal protection under the law, but we all know that according to the Scriptures, marriage is defined as one man and one woman, joined in holy matrimony.
To afford homosexuals the right to marry is perversion. There is no question about what is being practiced in the bedroom of those who commit these sins. There is no question about the results and consequences that follow those that practice the sin of homosexuality, or for any sexual sins.
Therefore, we at Prevailing Word Ministries will err on the side of being Biblically correct and be politically incorrect. We much rather seek to please God than to displease God. We fear God than to fear man any day of the week, 24/7.
Therefore, Prevailing Word Ministries will always welcome those that are bound in any sin, including the sin of homosexuality, to minister to all with the truth of God’s Word in the love of God while standing firm, and immovable in the truth.
Prevailing Word Ministries will never apologize for standing in the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ, nor retreat from those that insist in aggressively pushing the LGBT agenda in an attempt to silence our righteous voice, and force this local church to turn its back on the Most Holy God and His Word, the Holy Bible.
Prevailing Word Ministries is an EX GAY AFFIRMING CHURCH.
