Triumphant Ministries Toowoomba respects the freedom and choices of these peoples in the earth and does not advocate “cure” for all.
Given the freedom of opinion and expression and the freedom of thought, conscience and religion in Australia I write books and teachings and to add I do no face to face counselling. The ministry site embraces my calling, my story, my journey my biblical understanding on the subject.
Whilst I understand the LGBT I feel a deep hurt at how society and the church have abused them physically and spiritually when this is their identity and a reality of the very core of their existence. I understand their flight and plight and right to lobby to have freedom. Especially the way they have had to deal with their right of existence on the face of the earth in all things. I give them the freedom to believe whatever a to z religion they follow or don’t follow and to believe in whatever reality of life after death is to them.
To the Gay and Lesbian Christian I also know spiritual abuse has caused some to hide behind alcohol, drugs, sex addiction, or other compulsive behaviours. Or some have said they have been set free because God said “thou shall not” to surface years later to return to their former ways.
Or some lobby like DeJoodt, who has been brutally wounded by the church and ministries to open up his arms and embrace Christ Jesus once again; so he is against all ex-homosexual ministries and wants to shut us down. So I can understand these effects and them not wanting anything to do with ex-homosexual ministries or the “straight Churches” in Christianity but attend the gay churches.
Regardless, no church I know now is perfect or no ministry perfect. And to add no ex-homosexual ministry or no ex-lesbian or ex-gay or ex-transsexual minister or ministry I know are making a person return to heterosexuality. But rather to become the spiritual person and to allow oneself to be changed from within to be an obedient kingdom citizen. We ministers are convicted in our conscience and understanding of the Bible passages to believe practicing homosexuality is not Jesus Christ’s way of life in His kingdom.
We, that is those I know who once identified as homosexual all know it is no easy road to change or have your sexuality redirected in the opposite direction. And for many I know still live with the desire but choose Christ over whatever degree or strength or desire to be living as a homosexual. Change is learning what to do with the attraction because heterosexuality is not next to godliness or holiness!
And if you think ex-homosexual ministries or the church can or do successfully brainwash gays, lesbians or transsexuals you cannot brainwash anyone into thinking they are straight, for a man persuaded against his own mind is still of the same opinion, so he or she will just lie like some I know did or return back to their former ways.
I’m not saying that some have not changed, or most are no longer homosexual or that they were not really gay but straight. Or Christian cognitive therapy has not changed some because these say they are ex-lesbian or ex-gay or ex-transgender as we are all different in so many ways. Further, we all understand the bible differently to what passages mean and what it means to be a Disciple of Christ and us all apply ourselves differently to obey instructions in righteous living/laws.
Ministries or formulas or people cannot change anyone, but to claim that Jesus Christ by His Holy Spirit and instructions in His Bible or His Spirit using the keys given by ex-homosexual ministries cannot change the very core of a person or ‘unfix’ a sexual orientation is underestimating the power of The Creator.
He is The God, The Creator, and The God of Intelligent Design. Who heals diseases, whom can grow limbs back on persons and raise people from the dead. So why could He not change any aspect of a person or change the heart to love Him more than the desire to be in love with a person of the same-sex?
So what worked for one will not work for another, and getting married or throwing yourself into ‘hetro’ relationships may shipwreck one person, yet help with the desired transition deeply for another. For some, it is unwanted for others it is out of the conviction it is heaven or hell and for some they age with remaining strong attractions and do not act on them but stay faithful to how they understand what Christ says about homosexuality.
So I understand ministries that thought they were on the right track but were far from it; or were under doctrines of devils that formulated or distorted what keys the ministry was using to screw people over.
But we who believe we are called to the ministry and believe you cannot be a practicing homosexual will not bow down to people who could not forgive ministries or make the grade in spiritual warfare or embrace or understand the ways of the Bible to become a Spiritual Disciple of Christ Jesus or this man DeJoodt.
We believe to the Overcomer “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” Revelation 3:21 KJ
