FREEDOM MARCH CELEBRATES POWER OF JESUS TO CHANGE
Give thanks to the Lord for the courage of these individuals who have seen the absolute destructive power of homosexuality and transgenderism and are standing up to refute this evil movement! Pray for their safety and positive influence.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. (1 Corinthians 5:17)
Former transgender, bisexual, lesbian and gay men and women, including an Orlando Pulse nightclub shooting survivor, will be gathering in the nation’s capital for a worship event next weekend to proclaim how Jesus Christ liberated them.
Attendees from across the nation will assemble at the National Sylvan Theater from noon to 3 p.m. on May 5 for what is being called Freedom March.
Daren Mehl, president of the group Voice of the Voiceless, says he sees the event as “an opportunity for those of us who have a new life with Jesus to come together in fellowship and praise Him for the love and grace available to everyone who seeks it [and] to testify publicly of the life-changing grace available to leave the LGBT identity for something greater,” he told The Christian Post on Friday….
“When anyone spews hate toward another person they are clearly not operating according to the Holy Spirit,” Mehl said. “It is extremely sad when this happens and I hope that [Christians] would be convicted of their sin and repent and reconcile with those they hurt.”
He told CP that when he encountered the Gospel his entire value system, purpose for living, and beliefs about who he is changed, including his sexual identity….
Several of Freedom March’s speakers and worship leaders are featured in the film “Here’s my Heart: A Documentary of Surrendering to Freedom,” which chronicles the stories of men and women who left homosexuality and transgenderism behind for a new life in Jesus.
Elizabeth Johnston, who’s also known as The Activist Mommy and who has over half a million followers on Facebook, will be one of the event’s speakers. She said in an email to CP on Friday that many LGBT activists have tried to diminish the voices of those who left homosexuality because their voices present the most powerful refutations of the “gays are born that way and can’t change” argument….
“What they don’t seem to realize, is that no law will ever silence the truth that gnaws at their consciences every day,” Johnston said.
She emphasized that the Freedom March will be attended by all kinds of people around the globe who have lived lives and known the destruction of sexual sin and gender confusion.
“They know what it’s like to want help and freedom from the emptiness and addictions of the gender-confused lifestyle, but not know where to turn,” she said, adding that she hopes meaningful, loving relationships are forged.
“We can’t wait to see the fruit from it. When a person truly surrenders their life to Jesus Christ, all things are made new.” (Excerpts from Brandon Showalter’s article in The Christian Post)
