This SBC Resolution Would Address One of the Prime Threats to Religious Liberty in Government Today

If passed, this would be a devastating blow to not only to Christian counselors or ministries who provide guidance to anyone seeking biblical guidance.

During their annual meetings in Dallas this year, a resolution has been presented to the  Southern Baptist Church to oppose bans on so-called “conversion therapy” and reject the pervasive influence of “homosexual identity politics.”

The resolution, “On Ministry and Counseling to Lead People from Homosexuality to Heterosexuality,” proposes the SBC “offer loving assistance to people suffering from same-sex attraction, so that they may turn from homosexuality to heterosexuality” and to reject “as heresy any claims that God makes people homosexual.”

The resolution reads in part, according to The Christian Post:

The movement against so-called ‘conversion therapy’ poses an immediate threat to Christian obedience to the Gospel of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ because it is possible that due to lack of support from Christian ministries, some people with same-sex attractions may err in defining themselves as ‘homosexual’ by nature, and may thereby invite a fatal sin into their hearts.

In both Christian and unbelieving political contexts, homosexual identity politics has prompted a dangerous movement to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’ or ‘reparative therapy,’ banned in terms so broadly as to endanger the work of Christian ministries in aiding people with same-sex attraction to turn away from homosexuality toward heterosexuality.

The resolution was proposed by Robert O. Lopez, a professor at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas, who was raised by same-sex parents and now speaks out against homosexuality. Lopez, CP says, was forced to resign from California State University at Northridge in 2016 due to LGBT activist pressure.

Speaking to CP, he said that the resolution is a response to churches and state governments who are making it increasingly difficult for those seeking faith-based counseling for same-sex attraction to do so.

“We saw that Southern Baptists who want to make a change from homosexuality to heterosexuality are not getting enough help from churches. New laws banning change therapy are likely to worsen the situation,” said Lopez.

CP says the trend of proposed bans on so-called “conversion therapy” has spread across several states, such as Delaware and Hawaii.

California is also considering a ban that would severely limit the ability of anyone seeking or offering any type of therapy that would seek to change same-sex attraction. If passed, this would be a devastating blow to not only to Christian counselors or ministries who provide guidance to anyone seeking biblical guidance through a same-sex attraction, but to the First Amendment liberties of Christians struggling with homosexuality who would like to receive said guidance.

Former Pope Blames ‘Swingin’ Sixties’ for Catholic Church’s Cesspool of Pedophilia

The Catholic Church is again attempting to blame their rampant pedophilia on the outside world.

Published

Pope Benedict

The high pontiffs of the Catholic Church would make fantastic dodgeball players. Given just how well they’ve avoided taking the blame for, or properly reacting to, the disturbing prevalence of pedophilia among their ranks, there is little doubt that these purposefully-ignorant would be able to dodge just about anything. The problem is obtuse, obvious, and ostensibly disgusting.  There are literally thousands upon thousands of young children who have been sexualized by Catholic priests over the course of several decades in all corners of the globe.  The problem is not isolated at all, and the only common factor between these horrific crimes is that they occurred at the hands of the Catholic Church. If the entire world got sick from eating a certain food, we would stop eating that food.  In the case of the Catholic Church, the children of the world are being undeniably harmed by their religious leaders in habitual and systemic acts of pedophilia, yet the leaders at The Vatican continue to ignore and obfuscate the truth. Now, one former Pope is even blaming the cultural revolution of the 1960’s for the issue. Emeritus Pope Benedict has emerged from his cone of silence to offer a personal analysis of the clerical sex abuse crisis, citing the sexual revolution, a corruption of moral theology, and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries as causes of the problem. Benedict says that he felt compelled to contribute to a response to the present situation “since I myself had served in a position of responsibility as shepherd of the Church at the time of the public outbreak of the crisis,” and so penned his reflections, obtaining the present pope’s blessing to make them public. In his new, 6,000-word bombshell essay, the former pope turns his gaze toward societal forces outside the Church as well as…

This Husband Didn’t Want To Adopt, Then God Gave Him An Incredible Vision

When God has something in store for your life, you can’t run from it for long.

Adoption is an incredible, God-mirroring feat for Christian families to undertake, but it’s not without its challenges and pitfalls. When God has something in store for your life, however, you can’t run from it for long. Jeffrey and Kristine Moore learned this lesson on their 10-year adoption journey, ultimately leading them to adopt four children, Elizabeth, Jhonatan, Mariaelena, and Talia, from Peru. Jeffrey, however, recalled in an interview with PureFlix Insider that he wanted nothing to do with adoption in the early days of their marriage—even after suffering two miscarriages. “At the time I had said, ‘I don’t think I could adopt, I don’t think I could love a child that wasn’t my own biologically,’” Jeffrey said. Soon after, God lovingly set Jeffrey straight with an incredible vision that he reveals in the video below: https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1910950709034153 “The story of adoption began because God called us to it. I had a vision, and it was really, really powerful,” he said. “I was floating in the ocean at night. It was very calm and peaceful, and I was being carried by something in the water, like a current pushing me toward something.” Jeffrey remembered the water in his vision becoming shallow and leading him to a beach on a tropical island. It’s there that he saw something breathtaking. “There were all of these jewels or gemstones that were lying around in the sand, and every one of them was glowing with this internal fire,” he continued. “All these points of light…and I just felt compelled to reach out and pick one up.” His vision ends there, but Jeffrey says he believes God was giving him a very clear message about international adoption: “‘He said, ‘My son, are you willing to be carried by my spirit to a land far away to pick…
