I Googled "Charisma" that peoplegottabefree was referring to and read the article about Exodus International merging with that other ex-gay organization. The article said:
"The compassionate truth of the gospel is still the hope of the world today," said Alan Chambers, president of Exodus International. "Together, we hope to advance a new era in the global Christian church that is defined by God's truth as well as His heart for hurting individuals experiencing confusion and conflict about their sexuality."
Really? The gospels are the guide for compassionate truth? Let's read from the book of Exodus (from which the ex-gay organization was named) and get an idea about this "compassionate truth" the President of Exodus believes "is still the hope of the world today.”
Exodus 21:20-21 "When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property."
Feel the love.
