CARIBBEAN: “It is wrong!” says gay man turned pastor

BARBADOS NATION – He’s a former homosexual now turned preacher, and he is waging war in a battle to help others.

For 16 years, Eon Hendricks lived his life as a homosexual. Alcohol was his dear friend and being in and out of same-sex relationships was his weakness.

However, at age 25, he turned his life around, forsook this “dark period” of his early years and gave his life over to God.

It was not an easy road for Hendricks, who was raised by a single mother. At ten years old he was told by her boyfriend: “Fellows will one day take advantage of you.”

Only three years ago did he wonder if those words had put a curse on his life.

His past lifestyle is not a problem any more for the 35-year-old Guyanese born-again preacher who, “with the help of God”, wants to preach to the entire world that homosexuality and lesbianism are the works of Satan but deliverance from their “ugly” clutches is possible.

Hendricks says he is ready to take his message to the schools, churches and every nook and cranny in Barbados. In fact, he has already shared information on his life as a homosexual on public television in Guyana.

“Today I am very proud of my new lifestyle with God. I want the world to know what He has done for me. Homosexuality is an abomination. I paid attention and took heed. It’s time for people to wake up,” he told the SUNDAY?SUN in an interview this past week.

“A lot of people are living sinful lives in homosexual relations. Many are here in Barbados. It’s in the church, the schools, it’s everywhere. I know men in Barbados who are struggling with their sexuality.

“Many who are married are dabbling in homosexual relationships. If they fail to get help, it will bring a lot of disgrace to them.

They are living a double-standard lifestyle instead of dealing with their situation.”

It was at the tender age of seven that Hendricks discovered his deep attraction to members of his own sex.

By 15 he had left school because his mother could not adequately provide for her family of five. He started living a promiscuous lifestyle around 16 and was already a heavy drinker who was preyed on by members of his own sex.

Throughout this season of his life he watched helplessly as friends “died from one thing or another”, with never a chance to change their lifestyle.

He disclosed that at 25 years old he sat at the home of a couple for whom he worked and received a startling revelation. He said tears ran down his face as he asked God: “Why is this happening to me?”

He added that he cried out and asked God to save him.

“I knew I did not like my lifestyle. I had already spent many years in the world and gained nothing.

“About two weeks later a friend called and asked me, ‘Do you know that God has a calling on your life?’ [Almost miraculously] God started to move away my friends and he placed people in my life to encourage me. That’s how things started to happen in terms of knowing God.

“I got baptized on August 31, 2003, and from then on I started to serve the Lord.”

Today, Hendricks is a minister of the gospel in the Special Miracle And Deliverance ministry with dreams of marrying and having children.

Through the encouragement of a dear friend – prophetess Marguerite Breedy-Haynes of Saving The Lost At Any Cost ministry – he thanks God for the freedom to talk about his former lifestyle.

“I want people to know that God can deliver anybody from a life of homosexuality. They can be transformed. Homosexuality is wrong. It is an abomination and people need to get out of it quickly. It is taking over this and other nations.”

He offered parents some advice on how to deal with their children.

“If they are homosexuals, they need help. Putting them out of the house won’t help. Homosexuality needs to be dealt with. It is total disrespect to God for men to marry men and women to marry women.

“People who do these things are destroying their lives,” reiterated Hendricks, who said he went through many deliverance sessions before being “set free”.

“I don’t play with my life any more. I am now in Christ. Old things have passed away and all things have become new. I am radical for Christ and I want to see the church rise up and take a stand against homosexuality. It is wrong!”

  2. Sight,I have made that point based on experience i have had as someone who used to be a church attendant.A buller will always be buller.I lived in Barbados for ten years,Jamaica four years living a christian life.There was a gentleman who claim that,he stop being gay,repented and living holy.One afternoon i came to church for bible study and caught this same gay pastor having sex with another brother in the church.That was on the caribbean news may be you won't remember but,am aware of what am saying.So,back off!Let people make their points even if you don't like it.If everybody had the same contributions to make it would not have been an interesting world to live in Mr.Sight,come out in that,light and shine bright.Choops!

  3. I BELIEVE MY GOOD GOD WILL FORGIVE ME FOR ANY WRONG THAT I DO.MAYBE I AM NOT A BULLAR, NOT A THIEF, NOT A RAPIST, BUT MAYBE I DONT LOVE MY NIEGHBORS AS REQUIRED OF ME BY GOD. WE HYPOCRITES SHOULD TRY TO HELP OUR BROTHERS WHO HAVE GONE ASTRAY. MANY AND I REPEAT MANY OF US ARE WAY OFF COURSE. PRAYER - "FORGIVE US AS WE FORGIVE OTHERS".

  4. If anyone of us are born with one shorter than the other how do we know that this is not how it is supposed to be ? If one is born with two heads or one eye or one leg how do we know that something is not quite right? I think it has do with the difference between that person and the vast majority of others. A simple comparison between that person and others. And any such condition would be considered an abnormality and remedial treatment. It stands to reason therefore if a member of the male of the specie, for example, have sexual feelings for other males it is to be seen as an abnormality as the majority of males exhibit an interest in females and not males. And as such that interest which is contrary to the norm requires correcting if possible. It is an abnormality. For homosexuality alone everything whose pepertuality depends on sexual reproduction would be extinct long long long time ago !

  5. Who cares!I agree with you 100%,Everything is god.Not everyone beleive in god.There are people who are Satanist.Alot,of people just want to live their lives and what will be will be.We need a balance.I have met good people who don't believe in god than good people who believe in god.This bible is very old and most of what was written in that book,was written in a way so that,the word never dies but,to grabbed your attention.Go,on the net and google Rome,Eygpt,Greece on gay vibes.These are the countries who started that thing.Google Francis Assisi.This man who is a saint under thee Roman was gay at the age of fifteen and people are still praying to him.I saw a lady have him as a house name in this Catholic world.So,why all these blah,blah,blah?

    • Who cares. Respect is relative.Without this God thing there is no point of reference.We always change our perspective till we become pure evil. Its our natural tendancy. Today torture seem cruel tomorrow we see it is ok as long as we can prove it to ourselves, we always fool ourselves.

      • 'Without this god thing' there would be little or no turmoil in this world. Your man 'god', Muslims' Allah, the ancient Greek's Zeus, the snow fairies at the bottom of the garden etc. etc. are all figments of people who have no imagination and should find something better to do on their 'Sabbath'.

    • 'Who cares', my sentiments entirely, although I wouldn't put so strongly. When dealing with these 'holier than thou' religious bigots there has to be a balance to all their crap.

    • as the bible says the man who doesnt know god or regects god is a fool so by the looks of your comments it seems it was talking about you cause all you talk there is pure rubbish and you look really ignorant saying it and by the way since you dont believe in god do you also dont believe in the devil? and if you do believe in the devil how can you not believe god exist just some words for thought

  7. One must be a believer to understand the deliverance which has taken place. Those in doubt must seek the Word.

  11. alot of those people commenting bad about the man who changed his life from being gay to a pastor are just those typical people who have no wisdom and they might have much more skeletons in their closet than the man.some of them are just lucky still cause they have not been caught in the devil acts they do in the dark.dont you know that out of the worst could come the best.where did jesus christ come from.nazareth was considered to be a bad place to many back then and this is where the kings of kings came from.GOD can turn any bad situation into a good one.it is by his will that we called to perform his works.GOD chooses he he wants to send out his message.if god called out the gay man out of his dirty lifestyle to do his works in his name glory be to the most high for that cause the message will continue to pass on.i believe everyone are not meant to be saved cause there are some people who have sold their souls completely to lucifer but for those who are,give them a chance to fullfill their mission and stop casting stones at them cause christ once said he who is without sin may he cast the first stone.let the man be cause remember sin is sin.even if some of us are not doing it but we might be doing something else that is also wrong in the eyes of the father so let us allow those who really want to seek deliverance the chance do and woe unto those who want to stay in the dark.good job brother on this big change in your life.i admire your courage.

  14. I thank God for you brother. You are such an inspiration. This is a powerful testimony of Gods Mercy Love and Compassion to anyone who is entangled in Satan's web. The mercy of God is for all. That is why he died and shed his precious blood to give us eternal life. Be strong in the midst of adversity. Jesus is counting on us to help save souls!!!!!
