The Exit of Exodus:
I read the story this morning from Ed Stetzer then I looked for it from various news/web sources.  I know what I thought it meant but I didn't want to reach a conclusion before finding out more. Here is what I found out about Exodus International, from Alan Chambers and Exodus International (it is always good to find out such things directly from the source when possible): 

Exodus Int’l President to the Gay Community: “We’re Sorry”
This is Sam Storms' reaction.  He is willing to render a judgment. I'm still waiting to hear more.  It doesn't look good, it doesn't sound good but there could be another explanation for what they are doing and why.

Southern Baptist Leaders React

This is the program that Alan Chambers is supposed to be on tonight at 7 PM on the OWN network.  It will undoubtedly shed a lot of light on what is going on with Exodus International.  Perhaps we will have a clearer picture on the questions surrounding Exodus' surprising announcement.  Again, from what Lisa Ling is saying about this segment, it doesn't sound good.

The Psychology of Hoarding

Coming to a Vending Machine Near You: The Morning-after Pill
By: Eric Metaxas
“. . . the reason Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius insisted on an age limit was because “she could not be confident that a 10-year-old or an 11-year-old going to a drugstore should be able . . . to buy a medication that potentially, if not used properly, could have an adverse effect.”
“. . .  Frankly, I've known ten-year-olds who haven't mastered the art of putting the lid back on a tube of toothpaste. And yet Judge Korman and President Obama are going to trust these kids to carefully read the instructions on a potentially dangerous drug, and take it properly? Are they kidding?”

Homosexuality and the Gospel

I want to be so filled with Christ that when a mosquito bites me she flies away singing, “There’s Power in the Blood” – source unknown

Does Bible Prophecy Foretell the Destruction of Damascus?  By Joel Rosenberg  (June 28, 2012)

Please don't believe the lie that this is the only option. Suicide is not the way to end your pain or the pain you think you're causing family or friends. I believe it's a permanent solution to a temporary problem. I have found that the vast majority of people who commit suicide have come to a place where they have lost touch with reality. So before you get to that point, listen carefully to that circle of family and friends. Listen to the love that they express. Get the help that you need. Go to a competent Christian therapist. They are out there, although sometimes they're not easy to find. Do not listen to the Evil One's lies. He comes to kill, to steal, and to destroy. But Christ has come to give life. – Frank Page, From Mourning a Daughter’s Suicide
