Blog says 'Gospel' singer DeWayne Woods serenades lesbian "wedding"

UPDATED 7:16am est [scroll down]

GCM Watch is working on confirming certain aspects of a story about a rather well known gospel industry worker and a lesbian wedding. Incidents such as these are going to increase and cause more upheaval in the church as gospel industry workers continue to sanctify homosexuality with their music and influence. For those whose faith is weak and for the great numbers of immature Christians, gospel celebrities at gay weddings will only add to the already massive confusion over the issue.

It was more or less and open secret that despite gospel industry worker DeWayne Woods‘ controversial testimony of healing from AIDS, something still didn’t add up about him. Woods came out of the Donald Lawrence gospel music stable and like many of the industry workers refused to renounce homosexuality. In March 2008, Woods had agreed to an interview with homosexual blogger Darian Aaron, then according to Aaron, backed out at the last minute. Whether the interview was to be Woods’ “coming out” debut isn’t known.

But now an email with pictures  allegedly sent to G. Craige Lewis’ Ex Ministries place Woods at a lesbian wedding in Atlanta, as the “guest psalmist”.

Ex Times posted the story —with pictures— November 10th but little outside attention was paid to it.

GCM Watch contacted Andrea Williams, president and founder of the Telilah Entertainment Group where Woods’ picture is currently featured prominently on its website as one of its featured clients.

But Williams was quick to deny that TEG connections with Woods…anymore. In an email to GCM Watch, Williams said, “I no longer represent Mr. Woods. DeWayne was never part of my company. We represented him briefly. We stopped representing him in 2008.”

GCM Watch also asked Williams if Tehilah Entertainment support artists on its roster performing at gay marriages, but she refused comment.

Pictures posted on ExTimes show pictures of the lesbian wedding officiated by an Atlanta gay cleric OC Allen, the women and a picture of a man in dark shades whom Ex Times identifies as Woods. But the picture is somewhat dark. And Ex Times did not confirm the source of the pictures. Obviously if they are pictures taken at a lesbian wedding, the picture taken would have been in attendance.

This isn’t the first time GCM Watch has informed you about Christians fornicating with gay weddings.  In August 2008, we reported that:

Wendy Gritter, the Exodus ministry leader in Canada (ironically called New Direction) who admitted to gay activists she doesnt agree with Exodus’ message of change from homosexual is now telling activists she would attend a homosexual “wedding.”  What’s more, Gritter said she would give the gay newlyweds a gift because “at the end of the day I believe loving people is what God asks of me.”

Gritter eventually left Exodus and is now progay. But far too many pastors and churches continue to act irresponsibly by not informing their congregations of what is at our doorstep. Like in the Sodom story, soon the activists will be banging at the doors of the church (despite the lies they have told to the contrary) demanding that church leaders marry them or else face “discrimination” lawsuits and loss of 501c3 status.

Earlier, we posted a poll asking if you as a Christian would attend a gay marriage ceremony. See the poll and register your response.

UPDATE

GCM Watch has confirmed that the man in the photo posted by ExTimes is Dwayne Woods. An alert reader sent us this picture showing Woods with OC Allen while wearing the same blue sweater vest, purple tie, dark suit and dark round glasses (see inset comparison).

  1. This story should have never been reported unless it could be substantiated. This so far is nothing but an unsubstantiated rumor (gossip) and it very troubling that this would be reported as Christian News.

  2. The only thing “troubling” about is that it is a reality of the sick condition of the church of today and the false minstrels who are driving apostasy and heresy with their ungodly influence. Stop being so quick to jump to the defense of these wicked people.

  3. this is a sad thing to see. I remember when this guy first came out……woods being there lets us know that he confirms the marriage of a woman to a woman…..

    I bet you I know what people are already going to say…..”Well maybe he didn’t know it was a gay wedding…..” or “Stop judging him….”

    It’s sad but it will only get worse….

  4. Both of those men in the picture are gay, I didn’t know which one was Woods until I took a closer look at the above pictures, like it matters anyway.

    How is a Christian Music Company going to have no position on gay marriage?

  5. As I read Samson’s comment, I do see how it is even remotely possible to misconstrue his post as “jumping to the defense” of anyone. Please believe me when I say that I am 100% with you on wanting to exposed these people for the liars they are. We need more people to cry aloud & spare not. However, before posting anything, it’s authenticity needs to be verified first. Granted, an addendum was made & as it turns out, you were spot on but if the story & all attendant photos & comments had been confirmed first, there would have been zero need for an add on. Not trying to tell you how to run your blog. No biggie. Just saying.

    As for the actual topic, it doesn’t surprise me none. Sad as it is, a better question would be what are people in the “church” NOT espousing nowadays. Then again, define “the church”. If we are talking about those who have truly repented & are born from above, strange days indeed. If you are talking about people who may have said a sinners prayer (define that!) or simply raised their right hand to join a church or maybe are relying on a church legacy (I was raised in the church, church is all I know) but really don’t have a relationship with God, it kind of makes sense, doesn’t it? In spite of what they say & truly believe, no matter how anointed some may think they are, these people are not saved. It’s evident in what they embrace, what they do & what they say. Jesus said a good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Remember, the unregenerated man has no restraint from the flesh outside of Christ. If these people really knew the Lord, there is absolutely no way they could stomach a so-called same sex wedding….unless they were protesting it….OUTSIDE.

  6. There’s A LOT going on in the gospel industry that hasn’t been revealed or confessed.
    The only real concern to the industry is the bottom line. Much is kept on the DL for the sake of profit.

    It’s always very hard to get any straight answers. The gospel music community lives in a sort of underground world that cover for each other. The traditional church and the effect on their income is what keeps many from coming clean. A lot of others in music ministry who are not involved have become numb to their surroundings.

    BTW, Dawayne was on TBN not long ago. I wonder if they do any background checks on the guest they interview?

  7. samson, have you told delilah the secret to your strength?

    Another gospel artists CD that I purchased.

    I dont buy CD’s anymore.

  8. I’m glad CelebrateJ said “coming clean”.

    This is something that they won’t do because of the love of money. Fame and fortune. To them, this is more important than pleasing the Lord in righteousness and true holiness. That’s why it will be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah than for certain segments of the church in the day of judgment.

    Let me be very clear. It is not judgmental when sin is exposed. This is not a Matthew chapter 7 situation. If you have removed the beam or plank out of your eye, you have a right to remove the speck that is in the eye of another.

    I wish someone would begin teaching Matthew chapter 7 right.

    You carnal Christians need to sit under the correct teaching of the Scriptures because the same Pharisee approach to transgress the commandment of God because of their tradition, making the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition (see Matthew 15:1-9) is in operation in the lives of sympathetic pathetic practitioners of the gospel of inclusion.

    The results, carnal Christians that call good evil and evil good (Isaiah 5:20) are a bunch of hypocrites and will only give God lip service with their hearts are far away from God. If carnal Christians were close to the heart of God, sin is counter of His holy presence.

    I’d like to see if homosexuals or any sexual deviant be able to stand in the holy presence of God and do a sex act.

    Get on the stage and do a sex act while you are doing praise and worship.

    Well, it’s no different because that’s what you are doing in secret. You are thumbing your nose at God with your secret sexual sins.

    That’s why He operates in mercy because if He were to manifest His holy presence, the houses of worship would be the largest morgue in the world.

  9. Fred, they will truly regret the day they allowed the love of money and the desire to fig leaf their sins to override God’s will that they repent and be made whole. Dwayne Woods can sing all the sweet songs he wants to and talk about being healed from AIDS all he wants, but in the end disobedience and defiance to the Word of the Lord is going to determine where he spends eternity. I still cant see why they would risk eternity to hang out with sexual outlaws and attempt to justify their abomination.

    Now is the time to repent Dwayne Woods. Now is the time to turn away from the secrecy and come out of sin. You dont know what tomorrow will hold and if you are not in right relationship with God you song and you will perish in the fire of God’s wrath.

    There is something much worse than AIDS and that is HELL. Getting angry and puffed up because you are being told the truth wont change God’s word. Neither Donald Lawrence nor OC Allen will be able to save you when God’s decides to turn you over to the debase desires of your own mind.

    All it takes to repent is to ask God to forgive you and then turn away from these wicked people and serve the Lord.

  10. Most of these gospel artist are ambassadors of Satan instead of ambassadors for Jesus Christ. The deception is they pose like there Christians, however there Satanist by de facto. Instead of some of these ungodly artist doing the will of God, they “do wilt thou will is the whole book of the law” by engaging and endorsing sinful sexually deviant behavior.

    Gcmwatch is correct in his comments that they promote apostasy and heresy.

  11. Lucifer was the Praise Minister in Heaven until his fall from Grace. When we allow our desire to overtake us, we place a bad spotlight on God. We call ourselves Christians but act like the world. You can’t know that a difference exist until you see the difference. It’s a oxcy moron to say that one can be gay and a Christian. Jesus Christ sets us free from our sinful pratices if we want to be set free. If we are truly born-again by the Holy Spirit, then let us walk after the Holy Spirit. People are calling themselves Christians who don’t know what it means and is required to be Christian.

  12. It’s important to note that you are diseminating gossip. No facts found here. That, of course, is tantamount to lying.

  13. Todd you said the story on Dwayne Wood is gossip and lying. Let’s look at the definitions first.

    Per Merriam-Webster gossip is defined as “a rumor or report of an intimate nature.”

    Per Wikipedia: “Gossip is idle talk or rumour, especially about the personal or private affairs of others. It forms one of the oldest and most common means of sharing (unproven) facts and views, but also has a reputation for the introduction of errors and other variations into the information transmitted. The term also carries implications that the news so transmitted (usually) has personal or trivial nature, as opposed to normal conversation.”

    The word “gossip” is not found in most translations of the Bible. The closest thing to a biblical definition of gossip would be from 1 Tim 5:13: “And withal they learn to be idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.”

    So I will ask you based on these 3 definitions what about this story is “gossip”?

    Is Dwayne Woods not a real person? Not a gospel singer? Not a homosexual? Not at lesbian wedding? Didnt schedule an interview with a gay blogger then cancel? Didnt sing at a pubic gay wedding? Is that not Woods in the picture? Isnt homosexuality a crisis issue in the church? Did Woods not sing with Donald Lawrence?

    What exactly in your opinion is not true in the story? Be specific. And if ANYTHING written here is untrue, then I would expect that you would of course set the record straight with evidence to the contrary. The only way you could call it a lie is that you know the truth. If you dont know the truth, then you are the liar as well as a false accuser.

    I really dont expect you to have anything of substance regarding my questions, but I did want to afford you the opportunity. I hope this is not a case where you are just upset that one of your gospel industry worker idols isnt being effusely praised like they normally are.

  14. In the time since Ex Ministries made their posting in November and this blog has made this posting here, has Mr. Woods been confronted publicly or privately regarding his appearance at the lesbians’ wedding?

    GCMW: This blog post is a public confrontation.

    It is stated here that Mr. Woods refuses to denounce homosexuality. As there is with Tonex, is there some documentation of that refusal perhaps in an interview or other media?

    GCMW: This is a refusal of omission. Woods testimony only stirs the obvious, but he hasnt acknowledged that. He appearance at a homosexual wedding however, answers the obvious. You can check out interviews here and here. And the major issue here really isnt whether he is homosexual or not. Attending a homosexual wedding is approval of such a lifestyle. According to Romans 1:32 if you approve of their lifestyle you are just as guilty as they are.

  15. If its a homosexual pit and you know it is, why go there. They have separated themselves from us because we refuse to accept their blatant homosexuality. What reason would we have to go to their church? Oh, wait, I know, we are to go into all the world right cause you never know who you’re going to help bring to Christ by your testimony, the song you sing or the word you preach. These are the excuses these people are giving for going into these reprobate places to make the MONEY!!!!!!!!! The people in these pits know what the Word of God says about their lifestyle. The know the Bible, so they are exempt from us going to them for anything, because they have heard and rejected so God has spewed them from his mouth. We are to have NO fellowship with them whatsoever, they are not of God, doesn’t matter how good they can sing, play or whatever, God doesn’t hear.

  16. Nan that truly sums up this issue. What fellowship does light have with darkness. If as a follower of Christ see nothing wrong with going to fellowship with those who walk in darkness then the question is obvious. Are you in the light??

    The ONLY reason Woods is there is because he agrees with what they are doing. And the ONLY reason they let him sing to them is because they KNOW he agrees with them.

  17. wondering why my comment hasn’t been displayed

    GCMW: What comment is that? There was only one comment from “samson” caught in spam and it wasn’t on this post. It has been released.

  18. Had to repost: I enjoy enjoy reading this blog however at times I am saddened and yet perplexed by many of the comments and innuendos in regards to the sexual orientation of others who profess christ. It is my belief that the greatest tool at our disposal is our ability to pray. Often times I think if we (gossiped less) prayed more for our fellow brethren we would see individuals delivered from every vice and temptation known to man. Prayer takes humility and a haughty and self righteous spirit lacks humility because it has found its own righteousness. A Christ less humility is what i think we often display. If you see a problem go to your prayer closet and pray about it. Ask God to give you a true heart for these people that you often have such disdain for. GOd loves them and he wants us to pray for them not ostracize and mock them. Love them with the love of lord. Love and pray them to deliverance. Be living epistles before sinners because they are watching. Show them Christ by the way you live and not just talk. Don’t be the cause of these people who love GOD to turn away from him because of your bigotry. Love and pray them to deliverance and freedom.

  19. This wedding was in NY not in ATL, OC Allen flew to NY to perform this wedding for this gay pastor and her lover.

    GCMW: Thanks for clarifying that Jason. I edited out the names and links. For the record, our story made no mention of the location of the event. The women’s identity is irrelevant to the story. The point of the story is about a recognized mainstream “gospel” artist participating in a lesbian wedding.

  20. “samson” I think the reason you are perplexed is that you do not understand the devices of the enemy thus you —like most of the church world today— see this issue from eyes that allow satan to strengthen his foothold in the church. Its called a disguise. You are perplexed also because you dont understand the Spirit’s intent for this blog. That’s why your comment reads more like a social gospel activist than one who truly understands the word of the Lord. Don’t be deceived; your religious platitudes and the misapplication of our faith is not welcome nor employed here.

    You say prayer is the greatest tool at our disposal. Yet prayer cannot be a substitute for active confrontation of the enemy. Neither is prayer a panacea for all things. When it comes time for action, God rejects some prayer because it can be used as a religious cover in place of active obedience. In fact if we truly prayed in the will of God, God would move us to act. Prayer leads to action and action leads to more prayer. If you were truly praying (as you say) then why are open homosexuals gaining strength, power and influence in the church against the will of God?

    You seem to want to portray prayer as some sort of stand alone event which cannot possibly be done in concert with action. You do err. Prayer birthed this blog, just like prayer birthed the church you are in (check Bishop Mason’s testimony). But it is spiritually immature and irresponsible to think that prayer alone resolves all issues.
    When Joshua fell on his face before God to pray about the Isrealites defeat at AI, God told him to get up and take care of business (the Achan situation) Johsua 7.
    Jesus told us that when there is a problem, leave your gift at the altar (dont pray) and go and handle your business with that person. Matt 5

    Use that as your model. Sin is brazen in “this camp” and yet you want to pray. Stop all your praying and do what God has already told all of us to do.

    If you dont agree, all I can tell you is stop reading this blog and stop commenting and spend all your time in prayer for us.

  21. Well said gmcwatch…in love, yet in SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH! Cannot have real love without those other 2 elements! Continue to “contend” for the faith! I’m standing, contending and praying with you!

  22. Well Pastor, thats reply to Samson was truly of the LORD.

    God also told Moses to stop praying at the red sea. Jesus also said to be watch and pray, if you are watching then you must warn people about what you are seeing and hearing as in Ezekiel 33.

    The Watchman and His Message

    “1 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, 3 when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, 4 then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. 5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. 6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’

    7 “So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me. 8 When I say to the wicked, ‘O wicked man, you shall surely die!’ and you do not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 9 Nevertheless if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul.

    10 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: ‘Thus you say, “If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?”’ 11 Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’”

    Pastor, thank you for continuing to sound the Alarm!!!

  23. I read the same article on said mentioned blog and argued that it could not be determined or denied whether or not if he was there. Not to mention if he was or wasn’t there, shouldn’t the Saints be praying for everyone’s soul in attendance versus condemning them to hell?

    If the truth be told, God has delivered every true believer from something and He should us compassion. And as true believers, the same compassion God shows/showed us regarding our strongholds, so should we and pray for that He will open their eyes. And to be honest, I struggle with my sexuality all the time and not winning the battle; however, I personally find it discouraging that Saints aren’t falling on their knees and praying versus condemning to hell…

    Maybe it’s just me.

  24. @T LAmar- to struggle with sin in one thing….to go to a gay wedding and “sing” shows another….

    What should we pray for here? That woods stop going to gay weddings? Why doesn’t woods just stop going? Would God answer that prayer, when woods already knows the truth and has rejected it?

    Struggling with sin is doing every thing you can to stay away from it? Not going to it and singing…..

    So in conclusion I would say: “Yes, it is just you….”

  25. T Lamar, it has been proven beyond doubt that he was there. So Im not sure why that would still be an issue.

    Secondly I dont get all the religious posturing on prayer when its time to deal with sin. That’s a cop out. Nobody here condemned anyone to hell, because we dont have that ability. However we do have the right, the authority and the mandate per scripture to call out sin and openly rebuke those who are leading people astray. And we will continue to do so.

    DeWayne Woods needs to repent and turn away from his sins, not go and “affirm” a bunch of religious sexual outlaws who hate God’s Word and his law. And if he wants to do that then he should stop lying to the church and singing all the “gospel” music and selling it to people who dont know that he is affirming sin with the same breath he claims to be worshipping God. That’s called deception. And frankly its about as nasty and low down as you can get.

    Just because its your struggle dont get caught up in affirming sin and being soft on those who pervert the truth. The truth has no respect of persons. I find it very interesting that people like you say nothing at all about this mess knowing full well God is not pleased. Then when we deal with it you come out of the woodwork with all the “lets just pray”, “stop condemning folks to hell”, etc. Speak out against sin and stop allowing the enemy to deceive people. You said maybe that’s just you. Maybe it is but thats part of the problem, you need to get you out of the way and totally submit to the will of God.

    Take it from me, you will never progress towards victory in your own struggle excusing sin and defending people who enjoy leading other people away from God. Until you recognize sin for what it is (and how God defines it), you will never have the determination to master it in your own life.

  26. I heard he did more than sing that day. We are dealing with a gay spirit that want die easy. These gay gospel artist are putting their gayness on us all. I rebuke that hell music.

  27. This is so very sad and sickening. My question who is this mans pastor/covering that they allow him to stand before their congregation and minister to them? I’ve seen interviews where he says hes a worship leader at a church in ATL. Does this pastor condone this as well or does he/she even know? This man needs to fall down on his knees, repent, and ask God to deliver him!

  28. He may already be a secret member of this gay church in Atlanta, Calvin. That would explain a lot.

  29. I did not insult you nor this blog. I personally believe that you are anointed to do this work however I disagree in part with some of the tactics employed. I personally felt that this story hadn’t been substantiated enough to be reported and some of the comments posted here are mean. While I believe that this blog does a good work it however also exists as a way to slander and out perceived gay and of effeminate Christians. As one who has struggled with sexual orientation I have been blessed by this blog at times ( example :Marcos Antonio’s testimony). However, I’d like to see less innuendo and more facts in reporting and more love. Stories like this feed into the frenzy and fail to give voice to those with sexual orientation issues. It doesn’t address the rejection shame hurt and pain that many such as I myself sat in church with every sunday. It feeds into it and fuels comments like ” Both of those men in the picture are gay,” because of their physical appearance.

    Prayer is an active word. Its an action. We are called to pray without stopping. The prayer life of a Christian is confrontation that leads to more confrontation. Prayer does lead to more action however prayer doesn’t stop because you act. It becomes more intense and more necessary so that one stays within GOD‘s will. Saints fall everyday because they act and stop praying.

    Your absolutely correct to question if I was praying because the answer is no. Being young I was too burden down by my own issues to consider someone else’s pain so instead I accused other Christians and followers of Christ for having less than stellar moments of being less than christian. I challenged their theology and belief in the Living Christ. However, after being convicted in my own self righteousness and truly shown myself. God gave me a heart for prayer for all his people. As one who struggles with sexual orientation issues and yet has never given in to it. I just feel we need to preach more love. Not compromise but love. Additionally we should pray for our christian leaders (this blog included) that they stay in GOD’s will.

  31. Samson, to be truthful what I have read here is the truth, I dont think anyone has been mean.

    The fact is that these are the people are leading the way to the demise of the Church. I dont know of anything other thing that is influential and/or invasive as music. I forgot why but I watch an opening part of the Mo’Nique show and she was talking about homosexuality and she made a statement that floored me, “The Black Church and Black Gospel is VERY gay”!!!!!

    Think about that, the Black Church is percieved by her as some homosexual haven.

    I dont even know what else to say but I believe you get my point that these men are careless and are leading many astray, like the pied piper, the spirit of pan.

    If the music is “anointed” then nothing can be wrong with the lifestyle.

  32. @Paul N, powerful point you made. If the music is “anointed” then nothing can be wrong with the lifestyle.

    The anointing causes you to live right also. These ungodly gospel artist aren’t anointed, it is talent not the anointing. Most of the Black Gospel music is not under the authority of the Kingdom of God, but under Spiritual Wickedness in High Places.

  33. Total agree Shofarsound!

    Did you see the video of the Oprah legends ball? The whole world knows that Oprah is a universalist and pro homosexual but here we have a bunch of gospel artists with her “worshiping” The LORD. Its a sham!

    take a look, if you havent seen it.

  34. @Paul , I heard the same message in regard to church choir directors in a tyler perry play and I was astounded as well. Choirs (religious and secular) have been a haven for people with same sex attraction and as have many of the arts i.e dance, theater. Participants in the arts have always been interpreted as being gay and so have most men who participate in church regularly. Most women who attend church regularly marry men who don’t go to church because of the perception that men in church are gay. We can take this talk of perceptions further, in the black community light skinned men, attractive, articulate, educated men, or well dressed men have historically been perceived as gay. It’s a perception that I’m sure is based in some truth but not all encompassing. These are merely prejudices we have.The black church is mostly female entity and men are scarce. I’m not sure of this idea of gospel music being gay in based in reality of just a prejudice of those who who don’t attend church of a fallacy of those who wish to topple the church. But I agree the sentiment is there.

    I need clarification on what is meant by gay because I define it as individuals actively participating in homosexuality without a care. Not included in my definition are effeminate heterosexual men (who give off gay viibes), and former homosexuals. So maybe the choirs are filled with people who use to live gay lifestyles, or effeminate men. I don’t know. But black men who regulary attend church are viewed that way. Just like the women are viewed as unwed struggling mothers. They are just perceptions.

    Was not Paul anointed though he sinned. Was not Saul still anointed after he turned from GOD. The bible says touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm. Again as one struggling with same sex attraction (having never given in) I know prayer is a keeper.

  35. “GCM Watch is working on confirming certain aspects of a story about a rather well known gospel industry worker and a lesbian wedding….”

    …Wait a second. If this is so, then why did you post this if you had not confirmed the story? Doesn’t that fly in the face of the most basic rules of good journalism/blogging? I know that you’ve since confirmed it, but why not WAIT to post it UNTIL you reached confirmation?

    GCMW: Confirming certain aspects… does not mean we dont know the truth. There was enough of the truth with what we had to post the story. There were however some aspects the original post didnt explore that we wanted to investigate. So what is the problem?

    Let me say very clearly, though I am not a frequent visitor to this site, I applaud the efforts of this site to educate Christians on the crisis of gay/lesbianism in the church. But it seems to me that there is an increasing lack of prophetic humility on the way things are communicated here. It seems that this site, as well as the G. Craig Lewis site like to engage in stories that communicate a lot of speculation, conjecture and even rumor, which is not godly.

    GCMW: What in the world is “prophetic humility”? Can you give us a biblical example of that? As I asked someone else who accused GCM Watch of “gossip”, instead of hurling generalities you need to be specific. Point out specifically what is gossip and be sure to define gossip so that everyone can make an honest evaluation as to whether it is or not. And any issues with EX Times, you need to take up with them.

    This is a problem. Remember, gossip is sinful, too.

    Again, I’m not against this site’s purpose, but something is missing here in terms of the manner things are expressed. Just because your cause is right, doesn’t mean you’re to go about it in a less than pastoral, humble, and godly way. Just preach the gospel of Jesus’ cross and everything else will fall into place.

    GCMW: 2 peice, thanks for reading, but instead of anonymously sitting on the sidelines telling us how we should hit goliath, why dont you get some stones and help us bring the giant down? People like you are numerous. All want to lecture on humility and methodology but wont get involved. Sorry, but no thanks.

    God bless.

  36. Thank you for responding,
    Let me just say that there are many sites like this one which, in an effort to “cry aloud and spare not”, have outgrown their usefulness. How many times do we need to hear that so-so sang at a gay wedding, or so-so endorsed a lesbian pastor before it becomes redundant? (Well, redundant except for the uninitiated.) At that point it becomes, to me, no better than beauty salon gossip. I find the other articles, like the current one about the ex-lesbian far more interesting and MORE EFFECTIVE FOR YOUR CAUSE than the one about whether or not Dwayne Woods was at a gay wedding (I personally couldn’t care less. I never really cared much for gospel music–its not very scriptural).

    BTW- I really appreciated the ex-lesbo story because it counters the story the media just ran a couple weeks ago about the supposed “failure” of ex-gay ministries so seeing this article about this girl restores my faith. That’s how site is most effective to me

    The root of this and all other issues and sin is the absence of Christocentric preaching and teaching in our churches. Period! And for that reason, I am seriously considering writing a book on theology and Christology from a layman’s perspective, so yeah, I AM GETTING INVOLVED! I will shortly get council on this because anyone speaking for the things of God places themselves under an awesome and mighty responsibility. Remember what James says about not seeking to be a teacher because of the stricter judgment you can expect. And that’s what I meant by “prophetic humility”. Speaking for God is a weighty thing that I believe most of the OT prophets did with fear and trembling. No one should jump into it unless God ordains it.

    Thank you for reading, and may the saints continue to pray for this site. God’s grace to you.

  37. @Paul N, I’ve seen the video of Orpah legends ball, with all these gospel singers in attendance. It reminds me of the scripture in 2 Chronicles 19:2 when Jehu the seer tells King Jehoshaphat, “should you help the wicked and love those who hate the Lord?” This was after Jehoshaphat had aligned himself with King Ahab, and almost lost his life when he went to battle with Ahab. Orpah is a “hater of the Lord.” So why would Christians aligned themselves with her? Plus she is a tele-evangelist for the “gospel of a new earth” for new age guru Eckhart Tolle. Orpah is hardly even thinking about Jesus Christ as Savior.

  38. But 2 piece a site can only become irrelvant when all know about what is going on. If one person is not aware then the work must continue, however not only must we be aware but be reminded unless we get caught up (I Peter 5:8 – Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour). On that note I disagree totally with saying such sites have lost their use, it could be that things have become the norm thus we are desensitized.

    Also while you may not like gospel music, many people do and are influenced by gospel singers. These ones need to know the truth. If not they will buy the CD’s and only give the artists a stronger voice to spread their nastiness.

    My thoughts!

    You said it Bro. Shofarsound, I think for them to be able to say “I know Oprah” means more than standing for Christ.

    Proverbs 28:6
    Better is the poor that walketh in his uprightness, than he that is perverse in his ways, though he be rich.

  39. Glad you enjoyed the “ex-lesbo” article. Is that something like referring to someone as an “ex-homo”? Hopefully before you write your book you will excise the unnecessary derogatory jargon from your vocabulary. And since thats the article that supposedly was such a blessing to you, why no comment on that article? (btw we have plenty of stories and videos about overcomers on this site, but not a peep from you on those.) So, why if you could “care less” about Dwayne Woods at a gay wedding are you exerting all this conversation about it? Hopefully this will be your last gripe on an article you could care less about.

    And a for future fyi to you 2peice, if you dont like something we write about, you can simply keep your comments to yourself. That way we dont have to waste energy discussing something with you that you really have no interest in. That really helps everyone. If you cant control that need to do so, trust that I will help you maintain.

  40. You shall know the truth and the the truth shall set you free. It amazes me that someone always wants to stand up for WRONG and make RIGHT look mean and evil. It is time for us to stand against blatant sin like we are and THROW DOWN against evil. So, if someone gets upset because of truth then I say, grow up or don’t even come on this site, because you know it’s going to be exposed here. We have let sin run rampant in the sanctuary too long and now it’s being exposed and called what it is and, we will continue to stand against all forms of wickedness.
