Haydn Sennitt says another ex-gay minister bites the dust!

Haydn reports that... a week or so ago, a former ‘ex-gay’ leader named John Smid, openly declared on his blog that sexual healing and reorientation are not possible and has distanced himself from orthodox Christian teaching. But this will not deter Haydn who says...Many people will look at a ministry like Liberty Christian Ministries and say, “See, there you go: another one bights the dust. All that you say and teach, it doesn’t work! The tide is turning against you”. As common as this kind of view is, it is no sign of defeat. It indicates that the spiritual war is intense, that many are being deceived, that hearts are being darkened, that people are not guarding their own hearts (Prov. 4:23), and that truth is all too often being exchanged for lies...But often people lead themselves away from healing and victory by neglecting their prayer life and looking after themselves, by making small compromises over a long time frame, and failing to deal with the core issues of their brokenness.
If only I'd prayed harder then it could be an ex-gay like John Smid
describes... I would consider myself homosexual and yet in a marriage with a woman, which doesn’t change the fact that I am who I am and she is who she is.

  1. Poor Haydn is still fighting an unnecessary battle. I await the day when, like Smid, he admits defeat and finds true happiness.
