Exodus International Ends Ministry

“Ex-Homosexual Ministry Closes Following Apology for Judging ‘Who’s Worthy of His Kingdom’” (Christian News)

“The closing of Exodus International is probably for the best, since it had already ceased to perform its original function of offering hope for changing one’s sexual orientation,” he wrote in a statement. “The ex-gay movement has nothing to apologize for. The message that ‘change is possible’ is a modest one. It does not mean that change is easy… But to apologize for saying ‘change is possible’ is to deny both human freedom and the transforming power of the Gospel of Christ.” – Heather Clark quoting Peter Sprigg of Family Research Council

“Exodus International, a decades-old ministry of helping people overcome homosexual behavior, announced it is closing down the same day its president, Alan Chambers, issued a public apology to people who have been hurt by the organization. “Exodus International is the prodigal’s older brother, trying to impose its will on God’s promises, and make judgments on who’s worthy of His Kingdom. God is calling us to be the Father — to welcome everyone, to love unhindered,” Chambers said in a written statement June 19, alluding also to the development of a new ministry to “reduce fear.” – Erin Roach, Baptist Press
