6 Lessons From the Collapse of Exodus International

 

by Michael Brown, Charisma News

While the secular media is celebrating the demise of Exodus International and gay activists are hoping this will be the nail in the coffin of ex-gay ministries, Jesus continues to save, transform and liberate homosexual men and women all around the world.

Still, there are some important lessons we can learn from the closing of Exodus:

1. When a ministry or church or organization departs from its calling and purpose, it will no longer be backed by God. In the words of Jesus, “If the salt loses its saltiness … it is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot” (Matt. 5:13, NIV).

Right now, the world is mocking the idea that homosexuals can change, either by the gospel or by professional counseling or both, while many in the church are even questioning whether change is possible.

But Exodus is not closing because God no longer transforms homosexual men and women. It is closing because it has lost sight of its original mission and vision.
