I am Larry G Rogers, known on the site as DadLarry, and I am an Eunuch. No, I am not an eunuch as defined by a current dictionary, I am an Eunuch as defined by Jesus in Matthew 19:12 “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.” King James Version.
I was born an eunuch or as we now say, a homosexual “gay”, I never chose to be one. In fact for 12 years, from 1984 to 1996, in order to attend Lay Ministry Training at North Heights Lutheran Church in Roseville, MN, having been outed as Gay, I had to attend Exodus, “be healed”, and be ex-gay.
Except that the Exodus indoctrination failed and 12 years later the Lord lead me to Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1800 Glenwood Ave, Minneapolis, MN where, when the Pastor asked if I planned to join the church, I told him I wanted to be involved in ministry to Homosexuals. He said: “Great, we have been trying to get such a ministry going. Are you going to Pride, this afternoon?”
The Lord had lead me to a Reconciling In Christ Church and I started taking classes to understand that being Born Gay was part of God’s Plan for my life. I became ex-ex-gay.
Now some people ask me “Why do you call yourself ex-ex-gay?” I do it to remind myself that I was called by Jesus to be an Eunuch to fit HIS Plan. I tried to ignore or be different for the sake of being accepted by mankind but it was not HIS WILL: Jeremiah 29:11 quoting from the Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
“’11 For I know what plans I have in mind for you,â€™ says Adonai,â€˜plans for well-being, not for bad things; so that you can have hope and a future.'”
The Lord lead me to a website, which I offer to anyone who wants proof that Jesus actually said what is written in the Bible up until a revision in 2002 was made by Eugene H. Peterson in his contemporary language “The Message” where he redefined the message and left the word “Eunuch” out, the word Jesus had said three time, if the Bible as written in 386 AD and used even now, was correct and written as inspired by The Holy Spirit.
If you are willing, to delve into a website, written by a former Christian who has now converted to Muslim, believing as Mahatma Gandhi said “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” read with an open mind http://www.well.com/user/aquarius/
