The Harm of Side B Gay Christianity – Episode 11

Agape First Ministries discusses the harms of Side B Gay Christianity to the Church. Nate and Daren call Carl Nelson (Transform MN), Jason Strand (Eaglebrook Church), Rob Ketterling (River Valley) to repent of promoting Side B gay Christianity. Episode 11 of a multi-part part series on LGBTQ doctrines.

Calling MN religious leaders to repentance.

We want to specifically address some of the leaders in Minnesota. We want to preface this by saying we’re doing this in gentleness and love. These are Godly men and they’ve had impactful ministries in our state and so we are in no way desiring to tear them down or beat them up or slander or attack their character. However, we want them to be fully equipped with the truth. We want them to be fully equipped with the truth!

This is our “open letter” so to speak and the three people that we are addressing personally are Jason Strand of Eagle Brook Church [Largest church in Minnesota], Rob Ketterling of River Valley Church [second largest church in Minnesota] and Carl Nelson of Transform Minnesota, the organization most transforming Minnesota with Side B Gay Christianity. These individuals have embraced and promoted the false doctrines and teachings of Side B Gay Christianity as taught by Preston Sprinkle, Bill Henson, Gregory Cole, Jackie Hill Perry, etc. They are large influencers teaching the body of Christ in Minnesota with a leaven that is harming the Church and our families and children.

We believe the teachings these leaders are promoting is a disservice to the greater Body of Christ in Minnesota and we see this as something that is really disempowered the Church. It is our desire to unify all of us in the church around the transforming power of Jesus Christ. Agape First Ministries speaks of this in our Freedom United conference. There we desire to unite the church around the truth that Jesus Christ has life-changing power for every person that will bow their knee, including those who are LGBT. God never says “no” to freedom from sinful desires or transformation of desires, or said another way, restoration to a Holy heterosexual design.

The predicament we are in is a very serious problem for the Church in Minnesota. It is our hope that these leaders would demonstrate repentance by going back to their congregations and tell them they were in error, started moving in the wrong direction about LGBT issues, and need to course correct and get back to the gospel message, the gospel truth of Jesus and Sanctification. Begin teaching the fullness of sanctification and transformation unto healing and restoration of how God created them and desires for them to be Holy.

As it says in Joel 2, God says to “return to Me with all of your heart, with fasting and weeping, and mourning” and “who knows, maybe God will leave a blessing instead of a curse.” That is where we are right now in Minnesota. Will we receive a blessing or a curse? Side B Gay Christianity is an accursed doctrine. Let’s return to the whole counsel of God and the hope and truth of restoration for the repentant LGBT individual.

We are at 11:59 in this issue. There is still time for us to repent and turn to the Lord and cry out to Him.

The Sowing of Side B Gay Christianity in Minnesota

We’ve seen Transform Minnesota as the largest influencer in Minnesota to the point of landing a partnership with River Valley Church in hosting a Preston Sprinkle conference at their Minneapolis campus. Transform has platformed Preston Sprinkle, Gregory Coles, Bill Henson (Posture Shift), all prominent national leaders in LGBT Side B Gay Christian doctrines. Bill Henson of Posture shift, for example, has the goal of, ” Posture Shift is writing a new church history where communities of faith and homes are safe for LGBT+ family and friends.” and taking a “missional approach on LGBT+ inclusion” in the church.

We believe that Rob Ketterling was lead astray by Transform Minnesota and Preston Sprinkle. While Side B proponents lead with “historical biblical sexual ethic” and market how they agree with the Bible that homosexual practice and marriage is sin, they bait and switch unsuspecting pastors with the false LGBT ontology. We discussed this in our LGBTQ Doctrines series.
