Since I received this news, I have done a few research on Aaron Akrong. Aaron Akrong has changed a lot of things in his life since he came out as saved from homosexuality.
2. His IG Posts
His posts are very Christian now. He posts scriptures, his church services and meetings.
According to Aaron in his video, he had no influence or experience from the Christian community before. He lived a promiscuous homosexual lifestyle, taking drugs(crack cocaine). He has also suffered abuse for his lifestyle and also from the bad choices he made in the past. Giving up his old lifestyle he says has caused him so much since he nearly got married to a man who seemingly took care of him. Every rational and intelligent person must have a 101 questions to ask him since he posted this on public domain. I asked him a few of such in an interview which he isn’t ready to address for very obvious yet understandable reasons.
Aaron’s story has been welcomed with a mix of reactions from people. Most Christians from the Christian community in Ghana are very happy for his miraculous salvation. Others are pretty much passive about it because they compare it to quitting nose picking in public.🤦
Some of his friends from his previous lifestyle and other members of the LGBTQ community are infuriated for his ‘claim to be saved’ from homosexuality. They believe it makes them look bad and his claim causes a retrogressive effect in their fight to make people understand their sexuality as not evil or by choice. One thing Aaron seemed to agree with when he said he was born gay in the video.
Aaron’s family who seemed to have ‘accepted’ his lifestyle or didn’t care much about it continued to pray for him, must obviously be happy now for his turn around.
Some of his straight friends are obviously making fun of him, some are also putting two and two together thinking Aaron was attracted to them as straight people always think when it comes to gay people forgetting their pot bellies and gigantic noses.😂😂😂🤦🤦as seen in the comment section of some of his posts.
Aaron is not the first person to have come out as saved from being a sexually active homosexual in the gay world to being saved by Jesus. The most popular is award winning Ps. Donnie Macclurkin. Who’s shown to the media after all these years his sexual struggles on remaining straight. I don’t know about now, but Pastor Donnie wanted to marry recently but that didn’t work out either but you see strongly his heart burning for the love of Jesus.
I can recall a guy who also came out with a funny video as saved by Jesus from the “I am deliverdt” viral video who slid right back to being gay after gaining popularity on the internet. He probably had more suitors he thought weren’t worth ‘making heaven for’🤣🤣. That guy will make you laugh your socks off.
Well, this is what I have to say. It is not right for anybody to bash anybody for standing in HIS truth. It is not your place to attack anybody for whatever decision he’s taken in his life. I think it’s very ironic that people who seem to have suffered similarly like Aaron are the ones attacking Aaron now for his stance. It’s very ironic that people who preach empathy and love in our world generally as black people, Christians, LGBTQ and other religious bodies are the very people who lack it when it comes to showing it to others. Telling from Aaron’s story of abuse, you can see in his eyes, hurt, brokenness, confusion, TIREDNESS and fear. Anybody will take the best way out in his situation….in fact anything that promises to make it all stop. To him that way out is Church…is Jesus. If you ask me, I’m glad he didn’t choose suicide instead.
People need to understand that we are all different and we deal with things differently but all we seek in the end, is to be happy. Aaron is only trying to find his.
I say let Aaron be and continue to pray for him if you pray or believe in God. Continue to love him even if you don’t agree with his stance as Christian, as atheist, as gay or lesbian. We need some empathy and love in this world.
As I always say, I don’t have to agree or understand anybody to love somebody as long as they’re not hurting anybody else. My misunderstanding of your thoughts and emotions does not make it any more or less valid than it already is. If everybody thought this way, there will be less hurt and abuse in this world.
