We are on fire for Christ! Today we live to serve Him instead of
self. Please invite any or all of us to share our stories. We would
like to share how we found redemption, victory, healing and freedom
Ron Woolsey, Mike Carducci and Wayne
Blakely are living proof that God changes lives when we call out to
Him, invite Him in, fully submit our will and abide in Him. No
greater joy has been experienced in our lives than that which has
freed us from the chains of homosexuality.
We uplift Jesus in presenting our unified ministry; ‘Coming Out’
Ministries. God called us out of the darkness into the light and it is
because of this blessed experience that we celebrate ‘Coming Out.’
We are united in our belief that we are a ‚New Creation‛ in Jesus.
(2 Corinthians 5:17) Any claim other than one that glorifies God
falls short of His intended plan for us. To be a gay Christian, a gay
Adventist or a homosexually oriented Christian, places an emphasis
on self and temptation; suggesting a handicap or disclaimer.
Addressing sexual sin has been a challenge to all Christian faiths.
Ignorance has resulted in silence. Due to the lack of knowledge,
there has been fear and skepticism about reaching out. But silence
is not an option when Satan is gaining momentum each day deceiving
those who will live according to feelings rather than every word that
proceedeth out of the mouth of God. In praise and glory to God, these
five redeemed souls have been plucked from the burning and have joined
in a united front to pro vide education, hope and personal stories of
God’s redemptive process. There
is great hope for those
who are confused, not realizing how to claim the strength and
power of God that is available to all.
As servants and warriors for Christ, each of us seek to make
ourselves available to churches, schools and organizations who are
seeking answers and education. Contained in this brochure is a
synopsis of the focus each of us bring to discussing and understanding
God’s redemptive process for gays/homosexuals. Every
audience we have encountered has received the additional blessing
of realizing how God’s generous healing for the sexually impure is
parallel to the healing process of all sin.
Jesus doesn’t provide a mere partial healing. He doesn’t suggest
that we exchange one sexual identity for another. Who we are in
Jesus, is not a sexual identity. Over thousands of years, Satan has
sought to counterfeit God’s intimate gifts with self centered indulgences.
God gave this intimate gift only to be shared within the
confines of His perfect plan for men and women. It is not the only
plan for His precious children, but is the only one He condones
regarding sexual intimacy.
At the costly risk of ignorance, many who do not understand gay/
homosexual deceptions, are apt to provide affirmation and sympathy
rather than the hope and healing that God would have us
share with this natural, yet sinful inclination.
Jesus died so that ALL sinners might have freedom through Him.
In each moment of every day, He asks that we surrender our will
to Him. This is a faith and trust experience. Truth must outweigh
our feelings. Feelings have misguided souls through self-truth deceptions
since creation. When we choose to live in accordance to
the plan of salvation Jesus offers us, He sends His Holy Spirit to
influence our thoughts and life sustaining decisions. Philipipians
4:13 promises that we can do all things through Him that strengthens
us. Our great and loving heavenly Father promises this.
