Exodus International Announces It Will Shut Down

19 Jun

imagesWithin hours of Alan Chambers issuing an apology to the LGBT community, it is being reported that Exodus International is going to shut down. Here is the story as posted on the Exodus International blog.

Alan Chambers, president of Exodus International, stated that the organization had become “the prodigal’s older brother, trying to impose its will on God’s promises, and make judgments on who’s worthy of His Kingdom.” In contrast, according to Chambers, “God is calling us to be the Father – to welcome everyone, to love unhindered.”

Tony Moore, board member of Exodus, stated: “We’re not negating the ways God used Exodus to positively affect thousands of people, but a new generation of Christians is looking for change – and they want to be heard.”

In the same story it was shared that the board unanimously voted to end Exodus and to start a new ministry focused on reducing fear (reducefear.org); however, the site was not working at the time I tried to visit it. I am sure there will be more news in the days ahead.
