Reposition yourself: TD Jakes 'spiritual son' does soft porn for gay marriage

One of the false convert/spiritual sons of Bishop TD Jakes has now repositioned/reinvented himself as an advocate of homosexual marriage. Michael Irvin made the announcement via a bizarre cover story in a homosexual magazine . Like most secular and church celebrities Jakes takes under his wing to “father”, this is just another glaring example of the true fruit of false teachers. Particularly, individuals with sex saturated pasts plus talent make them soft targets for false teachers in the church. Taking advantage of Irvin’s celebrity profile, TBN rushed to get him before Christian audiences, touting him as a Christian “who’s life was changed and as a result he can minister to others.” Jakes eagerly featured Irvin as a spokesman in his “Manpower” conferences. In 2006, the Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote that during Jakes’ “Megafest” conference “NFL greats Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith paid tribute to Jakes, both calling him “daddy.” ”

But the degenerative influence of Bishop Jakes has now crested in the person of Irvin who wants African Americans to embrace homosexual marriage as normal.

To make his big announcement, Irvin posed sexually suggestive, half nude on the cover of a gay men’s magazine. The backstory justification for this bizarre advocacy by Irvin was his cross-dressing gay brother who died in 2006. An NBC DFW story reported that Irvin credits TD Jakes with helping him to accept his brother’s sexual and gender dysfunctions.

“Michael Irvin was never shy in speaking out on the football field, whether to remind an opponent that he had just been beat, or to rally his teammates on the sidelines. Now, Irvin is lending his voice to the fight for equality, appearing on the cover of this month’s issue of Out, a gay men’s magazine.

Irvin says in the article that his relationship with his brother Vaughan, an openly gay man who died of stomach cancer back in 2006, did a great deal to mold his views on same-sex relationships. According to the magazine, Irvin became aware of his brother’s sexuality in the seventies, after discovering Vaughan wearing women’s clothing, an experience that deeply affected the Hall of Fame receiver. Irvin has since reflected on the appearance with the help of Dallas Bishop T.D. Jakes.”

Even the Dallas Observer raised an eyebrow at the weird connection between the two:

“How can Irvin be both open to embracing a gay athlete and be a faithful follower in the flock of Potter’s House bishop T.D. Jakes? It is Jakes, remember, who — even after his son, Jermaine, was arrested in a gay sex sting in Dallas — calls homosexuality “brokenness” and promises to never hire a gay person into his sprawling ministry.”

If you are “surprised” about Irvin’s embrace of homosexuality, dont be. He’s been cultivating it for a while under the Jakes’ supervision. Irvin had been openly courting the homosexual community until last year when he was hit with a rape lawsuit from an alleged encounter with a woman 2007. As a result, ESPN summarily axed his show.

His gay [radio show] partner Cyd Ziegler Jr wrote: “This is a big loss for gay equality. Michael has been an incredible champion of including a gay voice on his show, even when management scratched their heads about having a gay guy on Dallas sports radio. It’s ironic that earlier this week the Dallas Morning News ran a story about how radio was Michael’s No. 1 priority.”

Its very interesting how people who creep into apostasy always end up fornicating with the homosexual community.  It seems to be a foreshadow of the bible’s depiction of Babylon. Revelation 18:1-5

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor.  With a mighty voice he shouted:

‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
For all the nations have drunk  the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,  and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins,  so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
for her sins are piled up to heaven,  and God has remembered her crimes.

ABC News' Brian Ross overhypes homosexual reorientation story

The world of politics, religion and media has converged  in a stranger than fiction drama. Feeding off the illogical hate of homosexual activists, the liberal news media seems to be fascinated with former homosexuals. First there was Lisa Ling’s “pray away the gay” slur-o-rama where she mocked God’s power to transform sexually broken people. That show included a  long time friend Janet Boynes. Then, Dr. Drew, using the same flawed and biased premise, aired a show called ” Can you pray away the gay? also featuring Janet Boynes.  As we noted before, such a phrase is the social equivalent of calling a black person a nigger.

The problem, you see, is that homosexual activists (aided by “professionals” at the nation’s mental health organizations) believe that a person can change their [homosexual] behavior, but their “sexual orientation”? Absolutely, 100% impossible.

But how does the opinion of educated people fare against the wisdom of God?

“I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for me? Jeremiah 32:27

Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26

To rephrase:

1. Is changing a man or woman’s sexual orientation too hard for God?

2. Jesus says that men dont have the ability to change certain things, but when GOD is in the equation, what men say is impossible (like changing sexual orientation) becomes possible.

So, this latest mock-up comes via ABC News.

In continued efforts to prove former homosexuals, exlesbians and yes even their favorite mock term exgays don’t exist they enlisted the investigative expertise of ABC News CHIEF investigative journalist Brian Ross.  To ABC, this apparently was on the scope of the Watergate scandal. But Ross has a reputation. Gawker said Ross “has a breathtaking record of recklessly inaccurate, overhyped stories that don’t live up to the headline.” Ross held true to form with this “investigative story”.

Ross used recycled video from an internet based homosexual organization ironically called Truth Wins Out (TWO). TWO has doggedly sought legitimacy by claiming that former homosexuals are not actually former homosexuals.  Thus, the video was  taken by an “undercover” homosexual activist who wanted to tell the world some shocking news.  Presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann’s husband has a Christian counseling practice that tells people sexual orientation isn’t set in stone. A Christian counseling practice that tells men and women they can change from homosexuality. Shocking news indeed.

Americans for Truth about homosexuality provides more detail about the faux sting.

Once a greatly feared investigative reporter, Brian Ross has been reduced to recycling left-wing material from the homosexual lobby. But the pathetic hit job he narrated on Monday’s ABC Nightline show on GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has backfired in a big way. The charge was that the Bachmann family counseling service engages in terrible things by teaching homosexuals how to leave their disease-ridden lifestyle.

Ross called this method of counseling, which emphasizes religious conversion, “highly controversial” and said it “could become a campaign issue.” Ironically, however, he presented evidence that ex-homosexuals do in fact exist

It is a sign of the dominance of the homosexual lobby in the media business that such a program would even be aired. The upcoming National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association convention features “Today” show co-anchor Ann Curry and CNN’s Don Lemon as keynote speakers.

The ABC piece, “Michele Bachmann Clinic: Where You Can Pray Away the Gay?,” was constructed in such a way as to suggest that ex-homosexuals are non-existent, even though the Brian Ross report itself noted the presence of books by a “self-proclaimed ex-lesbian” in the counseling center. A video from the ex-lesbian, Janet Boynes, was even shown briefly on the air. This was supposed to be shocking.

Of course, the notion of the Bible condemning homosexual behavior, reflected in several passages, was viewed as bizarre and intolerant.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth says the phrase, “pray away the gay,” is intended to ridicule Christians and comes directly from homosexual activist Wayne Besen’s group, Truth Wins Out. LaBarbera asks, “Why are the major media repeating these hateful attack slogans by radical gay activists?”

He explains, “We don’t mock the idea of leaving drug addiction or alcoholism with God’s help. Why is it acceptable to mock faith in God to overcome unwanted behaviors like homosexuality in their lives?”

“Wayne Besen’s thesis is that ex-gays don’t exist,” noted LaBarbera. But Janet Boynes is a real person and absolute proof that one can leave the homosexual lifestyle.

Perhaps without realizing it, Ross has presented evidence of the homosexual “change” that he was trying to discredit.

“The homosexual lobby simply can’t deal with the reality that ‘gays’ can change (usually with God’s help),” LaBarbera adds. His group recently hosted an event with another ex-lesbian, Linda Jernigan.

Its amazing that in 2011 with all the talk of “being yourself”, being “open and honest”, tolerance, acceptance and equality, homosexual activists want to tell us we have to remain enslaved to something God didn’t create us to be.

Homosexuals going “undercover” to prove us former homosexuals don’t exist is nothing new, but its the activist’s #1 tactic to stir up public hatred and disbelief against people who were formerly like them. Several years ago, an “undercover” gay activist showed up at one of our meetings in Atlanta.  After I rebuke her juvenile antics (and story), she claimed she was set up by the gay newspaper editor and they changed her words after she wrote the story.

If homosexuals don’t want to change, then the solution is simple:  don’t go to a Christian counselor who will tell you that you can.

Update: CBN interviews Mark Yarhouse about the possibility of change from homosexuality which is referred to as “orientation”. When the context of the argument is about “orientation”, a scientific/pyschological construct, the ability to leverage a biblical perspective is greatly diminished. The bible doesnt address orientation per se, but it does address the soul and spirit and intangible nature of mankind both in terms of sin and holiness. See our story Does the Bible address sexual orientation. CBN Video of the interview below.

Apostolic bishops affirm bible's prohibition of homosexuality

There’s few, if any, organizations of Christian belief that have not seen substantial challenges from religious homosexual activism. The acceptance of homosexuality —unlike other sins— presents significant changes in fundamental doctrines of the church: sin, repentance, deliverance, biblical inerrancy and authority, even the nature of Jesus Christ himself. Although we previously had not heard much corporately from the various splinters of “oneness” adherents, they too are in the throes of struggle.

Ergo, several years ago, prominent bishops from leading apostolic organizations met to affirm their stance on homosexuality and same sex “marriages”. The International Christian Apostolic Fellowship included Bishop James E. Tyson of the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Bishop GM Boone of the Apostolic Assemblies of Christ, Bishop Jeremiah Reed of the Christ Temple Apostolic Fellowship, Inc, Bishop Willie Duncan of United Apostolic Churches, Bishop JE Moore of the Pentecostal Churches of the Apostolic Faith, Bishop Joel Trout of Impact Apostolic Ministries and Bishop Nathaniel Urshan, former General Superintendent of the United Pentecostal Church International. No doubt these are familiar names among those who attend the noted churches.

The meeting discussed what the Apostolic leaders deemed major challenges and doctrinal issues confronting the church. This particular segment focused on homosexuality. Bishop Jeremiah Reed mentioned (but got off track) that he knew one person who was “totally delivered”. It would have been an greater testament to the leaders if they had all acknowledged the reality of deliverance for those bound in homosexual sin.

While we can appreciate the unanimous solidarity with scripture against homosexual conduct, one wonders if these bishops and leaders spoke out against the current occupier of the White House and his overzealous affinity for homosexuality.

Your comments on the video statements welcome. This post is not an endorsement of apostolic doctrine so please withhold comments regarding that issue.

Homosexuality may have the 'Church' silent, but not God's Faithful

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God forsalvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” Romans 1:16-17

Everyday this world as we know it moves closer and closer to destruction. Don’t close out this blog just yet, I’m not preaching the “end of the world is today” stuff. However, I am preaching something that needs to be heard. The truth.

It seems as if that message (The Truth) is an archaic one. Few want to hear it. Others who claim to know it, don’t want to share it with others. Why is that? When a person is abused by a sexual predator and caught, the courts make it their business to let everyone know that the perpetrator is a threat to society.

Sexual predators are immediately locked up and then if they are lucky enough to be released back into the world, they are heavily marked in police systems, newspapers and internet sites etc.

What about when a car dealer sells you a bad car and then fails to help you when it breaks down?  You go out and “speak the truth about him” to all of your friends, family members, and co-workers. I’ve actually seen car dealers go out of business after scamming one too many people in the same city. People don’t mind spreading that kind of truth.

So what’s the problem when it comes to spreading the truth about God’s word? Why are we so silent about key issues regarding our faith? Why do we become like deaf mutes whenever God places an evangelistic prompting in our hearts?

Here’s a good question:

Why are we so silent about the homosexuality issue that is sweeping our very nation right now?

The internet alone is saturated with erroneous biblically ignorant sinners who are promoting the homosexual agenda. The myriad of videos, blogs, articles, movies, books, television shows, commercials that are pushing the homosexual agenda right now is mind boggling. Not because they exist, but because this world is totally sinful and the power/prince of the air has it on lock down. I expect that from them.

What I didn’t expect is the SILENCE and COWARDICE (sort of like a defeated dog with his tail between his legs) of the protestant/evangelical/pentecostal community in the face of one of the most massive attacks on scripture we have ever seen. Homosexual churches are popping up everywhere and deceiving many so fast that even the well known stars of so called “gospel” music are falling for the lie.

“Homosexual christians” are taking their message of this sickening, fake, loveless, so called “equality” inclusion garbage to the streets and we sit back and have our countless praise fests and mega shifts into greater anointings. Father Forgive Us!!!

People are dying!!!! People are being lied to!!! People are speed racing into eternal damnation and what is the church doing about it? NOTHING!!! You know what let me take that back, they are doing something. They are giving into these homosexual terrorist demands see here.

Only a remnant?

We can still Praise the Lord because as it is always in the scriptures, God has a remnant of faithful followers who have not bowed down to baal. And one of our representatives is a strong brother in the Lord. A former New York Giant best known for catching a ridiculous pass to keep a Superbowl winning drive alive . Unbeknownst to me and I’m pretty sure a lot of others as well he is a true bonafied Christian with knowledge of His God’s glorious word. His name is David Tyree! And I’m proud to call him a brother in the Lord!

David Tyree really made a name for himself when he single handedly enraged the gay marriage devotees in New York. Tyree declared (truthfully) that homosexual marriage would lead to anarchy. Praise God for this man and his uncompromising message of truth! 

The sad thing is that he quickly became the object of hate and vilification without measure. The enemy shot volleys of fiery darts and arrows at him but nevertheless he and the rest of us will endure adversity and persecution just like the Apostle Paul did:

“Are they servants of Christ? I am a better one—I am talking like a madman—with far greater labors, far more imprisonments, with countless beatings, and often near death. Five times I received at the hands of the Jews the forty lashes less one. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I was adrift at sea; on frequent journeys, in danger from rivers, danger from robbers, danger from my own people, danger from Gentiles, danger in the city, danger in the wilderness, danger at sea, danger from false brothers; in toil and hardship, through many a sleepless night, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure. And, apart from other things, there is the daily pressure on me of my anxiety for all the churches.” 2 Corinthians 11:23-28

Paul endured all this affliction to speak the truth of God word to sinners.

Sadly a modern day saint can’t even endure somebody “talking about them” in the church without leaving the church and no longer attending. But what is even more crazy is how no major “so called” Christian leader has stepped up to challenge the enemy and his lies. Think about it: have you heard any rebuttals from Joel Osteen, T.D. Jakes, COGIC Bishop Charles E. Blake, Joyce Meyer, Benny Hinn, Billy Graham, Creflo Dollar, John Hagee, Paula White, Eddie Long? NO! And you won’t for two reasons.

1. They are not true Christian Leaders (or believers for that matter) for obvious reasons (google their names).

2. To speak out against homosexuality will cost them major money, followers, and popularity. Meaning they would actually have to suffer for Christ. Now why would they do that? (rhetorical question)

Please keep Brother Tyree in prayer. Also if you’re on Facebook like the group We Support David Tyree & Biblical Marriage.

Are church gays killing gospel music?

So called gospel music may be on its last stanza according to one Dallas based minister who cites homosexuals in the gospel music industry as one of the main reasons.

Elder G. Craige Lewis of the famed ExMinistries wrote in his blog that compromise, poor quality music, carnality and “copy cat” gospel  has deeply impacted what was once a great asset to the church.

“Kirk Franklin posted on his facebook that Gospel Music sales are way down. Wanna know why? I can give you 5 good reasons why, and here we go.
1. Homosexuality – Even the married male gospel singers are suspect these days because they approve of the homosexual ones. They are on the stage with them, they make music with them, they have them singing background and playing instruments for them, so, where are the real men in Gospel Music? How does this affect the sales of Gospel music you may ask? Well, the devil controls the music industry so, his plan is to kill ALL sales of Gospel by merging the gospel with the secular industry. So, as Kirk puts on the pink, and Tonex dances in drag, while Dillard drops it like it’s hot, and Woods openly performs at a lesbian wedding, the devil has a greater plot. The LGBT is getting ready to shine it’s flashlight on the church and it’s gonna catch a lot of these artists and pastor with their pants down. Once they get the goods, they will force these Gospel Artists to come out like Tonex and support Carlton Pearson’s inclusion. Who wants to buy inclusion gospel music? No one, because inclusion gospel music is secular music!”

Pink lip syndrome?

Kirk Franklin’s comments may reflect 2011 sales issues. And then again with his pink lipped “I smile” video images, people may be backing off gay-themed gospel music.

According to Gospelmusic.org, the top 10 markets for Christian/Gospel music in 2008 were Los Angeles · New York · Dallas/Ft. Worth · Atlanta · Philadelphia · Chicago · Washington D.C. · Houston · Washington D.C. · Seattle/Tacoma · Minneapolis/St. Paul

A 2009 article in Eurweb contended sales were up, but concerts ticket sales were down.

Gospel music sells have exploded in recent years. The Christian music industry as a whole sold more than 44.9 million units in 2006 with twenty percent of those sales attributed to black gospel music. Black gospel music has grown to being heard on mainstream radio formats nationally and has a platform few imagined.

Although sales in the genre are up, attendance at gospel concerts have not followed suit. Major artists are struggling to fill seats causing local concerts and national tours to suffer. Some of those tours, backed by major sponsors including the Patti Labelle Tour and the Sisters In The Spirit Tour, have been cancelled abruptly leaving gospel music fans standing in the refund line scratching their heads.

James Walker, Esq., of Walker & Associates, an attorney for some of the biggest names in the business, blames market saturation.
“The explosion of gospel music has been a blessing and a curse in some ways for our touring business,” Walker told Gospel News Now. “There was a time when you could only see your Gospel artist once or twice at most a year in a given market, and rarely on television or in a video. With the present billion dollar state of gospel music and the industry as a whole, many of the artists are touring all the time and the feedback from consumers has me very concerned.”

Charisma features exlesbian on July cover

From a Charisma Magazine press release, its July issue will take a hard look at homosexuality and the challenges it presents to the contemporary church with a lead story entitled “The Church’s gay Delimma: What radical activists dont want you to know”. Featured on the cover is Minneapolis based ex-lesbian Janet Boynes.

Lake Mary, FL – Charisma magazine tackles the tough subject of homosexuality and the church in order to shed a huge spotlight of truth on the enemy’s lies. For their lead story, they couldn’t have chosen a better model than Creation House author—and former lesbian—Janet Boynes.
In the July issue (on sale June 22nd), Janet exposes the deception to which so many have fallen prey, when they come to believe that same-sex attraction is a natural part of who they are. With courage, candor, and compassion, she shares her powerful story of a life transformed by God’s grace and delivered to a freedom framed and powered by God’s purpose.
Janet’s message is one of hope, spoken with the wisdom and passion of someone who’s been there. Many people will read her heartbreaking story of childhood abuse and abandonment and be able to relate to the brokenness that led her on a quest for acceptance and love. This is a familiar scenario for many individuals trapped in the homosexual lifestyle.
For years, Janet lived her life knowing she was on a destructive path, but she had no idea how to change. Her heart cried out for freedom, and the Lord heard her. Through a surprise encounter with a Christian woman she’d never met, God set the stage that ultimately would lead to her deliverance.

Boynes, the author of the book “Called Out”,  was also featured on the Dr. Drew show and  Lisa Ling’s “pray away the gay” mockumentary on Oprah Winfrey’s new network.

Jamal Bryant having "conversation" with homosexual pastor

Jamal Bryant is hosting a Tuesday night featuring “Conversations” with Dennis Meredith of Atlanta. Its interesting that this flier gives no indication of what the “conversation” is going to be about. If you didn’t know that Dennis Meredith is a backslidden inclusionist who divorced his wife and became a homosexual, you would think this was about what type of suit and tie to wear for Sunday morning service.

Curiously, Bryant also has Brenda Burton there.  Burton shared her testimony of overcoming lesbianism on last year’s Lexi Show. Will she really have a voice  or is she a prop?

The graphic has been updated with a title: “Homosexuality in the house of God”. See updated copy here. Thanks for letting us know.
