Here is an excerpt from Alan Chambers‘ blog through Exodus International: – “In January I had the privilege of participating on a panel at the Gay Christian Network Conference here in Orlando. Leslie and another couple from Exodus sat in the audience of 450 people listening as I was grilled for about 3 hours. Some comments I made there have ratcheted up the discussion on multiple levels. All sides are clamoring for a way to associate, disassociate, credit or discredit what I said, what I believe and the organization that I lead. One thing is certain, more conversation is needed and I am excited about being a part of it over the long haul.”

“The two controversial comments I made are:
1. I called a group of people who identify as gay or lesbian (some active, some celibate) brothers and sisters in Christ.
2. 99.9% of the people I know have not changed their sexual orientation.”

“These views don’t represent a change in what I believe. While there is some nuance to my answers and statements from the recent and distant past that might seem contradictory, I have been increasingly clear since 2006 about my beliefs regarding “change” and “eternal security,” which I prefer to label “sonship.” I made the statements at GCN in an effort to be plain about my beliefs. I also wanted to acknowledge that in the past Exodus has made statements about change, which have confused and, at times, unintentionally misled those who support us and those who don’t.”
