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.” What confusion!
The reason the exgay ministry world can’t be effective is that it’s trying to be all things to all people. You can thank postmodernism for that. Homosexual activists want to see their ministries cease to function. But some –like Gritter– think that winning people to Christ means “hanging out with sinners”. Gritter says her goal is to hang out too and make legalistic religious leaders “nervous.”
One wonders if Gritter would attend a polygamy wedding(s) simply because loving people is what God asks of her? Would she attend the “wedding” of a 50 year old man and a 14 year old boy if it becomes popular and God forbid legal because God asks her to love people? Since this seems to be about following Jesus’ example, where in the Bible did Jesus attend a homosexual wedding bearing gifts?
We reported here and here that the disjointed messages coming from Exodus International make it impossible to refer people to the organization for help. Pastors should not refer people to the organization until it can solidify its message and practice into one which is faithful to the Word of God not science, polls, surveys and people like Wendy Gritter.
Gene Robinson and I have a different position on sexual ethics. He and I look at Scripture differently. On some important realities, Gene and I disagree.
But when Gene says, “I think God wants us to be bold…. to take risks. I don’t think God wants us to be afraid.” I have to say, I agree.”
So the gay christian bishop Vicky Gene Robinson says “God wants us to be bold…to take risks”? So why is it when a man took a risk, stood up in church and boldly called Robinson a heretic who needed to repent, why was the man thrown out of the church? Add hypocrite to heretic and keep repent.
While Gritter is obsessing over whether or not she is seen or not seen as loving or not loving homosexuals who marry, and “hanging out with sinners”, did she ever read this?:
You adulterers! Don’t you know that friendship with the world means hostility with God? So whoever wants to be a friend of this world is an enemy of God. James 4:4 ISV
