SORT BY Relevancy
GAY CONVERSION THERAPY – REALLY?
In case you never heard of it, some people think they can convert gays, especially young people, into heterosexuals by using a type of “therapy.” Really! Of course this assumes that being gay is like a bad habit or mental illness that can be cured. So what is this all about, does it help, does it hurt, and what are we doing about it?
Oregon is one state among several that recently passed a law prohibiting conversion therapy, and other states are considering such bans.
Samantha Ames is an attorney with the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) knows about conversion, what it’s supposed to do and what it really does. She’s served as a Policy Fellow in Washington, D.C. before moving to San Francisco to work as a staff attorney focusing on conversion therapy cases. She has testified on the harms of conversion therapy and the constitutionality of efforts to end it before both state and federal bodies, as well as at the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland.

Study Text: Acts 9:1-22
Key Verses: Acts 9:1-4
And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,
And desired of him letters to Damascus to the stnagogues, that if he found any of this way whether they were men or women,
he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me ?
In this episode, we will attempt to answer a few questions from listeners about conversion experiences, and are some of these experiences normal and Biblcal? We will also start discussing common lies and methods being prescribed in evangelicalism today regarding salvation / how to become a Christian.
In this episode we will also be continuing our discussion, as much as time allows, about what false conversion is, what causes it, and what the evidences are in someone's life. What can we look for in someone's life that would show they are possibly a false convert? What are the signs? How are they different from true believers? And once again, we have been embarking on this radio venture, as well as the opportunity to create a whole new, high quality website. If you would like to be a part of supporting Falsified Radio, you can make a donation of any amount on our website. We will talk a little about the movie "Old Fashioned" and answer a few questions from listeners from FB as well.
The first guest is Daniel Schmid, attorney for Liberty Council, who will
be discussing efforts to ban gay conversion therapy in various states.
Conversion of a Catholic Who Would Not Pray (after he heard an audible voice)
Tony Koss, a fellow sojourner with me in the Medical Lab at Womack Army Hosptial at Ft. Bragg, while I was an Elder's President (3rd Quorum) of the Raleigh Stake of Zion, my first vision occurring just 3yrs earlier and therefore I was intent on missionary work, and tried to get him to pray, and he would not. Then an audible voice in the hearing of myself, another Sgt E6 and Tony in the "sticking room" where we drew phlebotomies, when I obeye a command to quote a prophecy concerning myself, and audible voice spoke which we three heard. The verse I was commanded to quote was this, a prophecy of the One Mighty and Strong from Isaiah 52:
7 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!
(Old Testament | Isaiah 52:7)
Tony then moved on to a TMC and I saw him about a week later in the lab, and he said, "Art! I have read the Book of Mormon in three days!" Whereupon I made arrangements for him to be taught by myself and two Elders. I baptized him shortly before his separation from the service with honorable disharge. This was about April, 1974, shortly before I was ordained a Seventy Apostle.
John Carpenter is a convert to the Catholic Faith. In his study and research, he has developed one of the worlds greatestest documentation on Marian Apparitions found any where. Join John each week as he brings alive the message of Our Lady.
We are all called to follow the Lord in all that we are and I think this is why conversion stories are so important to many of us. They offer hope in times of despair. Because we are living in an evil age, St. Paul writes, ”And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper.” Romans 1:28
Even so, St. John is clear, “But to those who did accept him he gave the power to become children of God, to those who believe in his name.” John 1:12
Jesus gives us this message of hope, “What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert and go after the lost one until he finds it.” Luke 15:4
Joel 2:12-13 really says it all, “Yet even now, say the Lord, return to me with your whole heart, with fasting, and weeping, and mourning: Rend your hearts, not your garments, and return to the Lord, your God. For gracious and merciful is he, slow to anger, rich in kindness, and relenting in punishment.”
