  1. I sat under Clayton King for over 6 years, but when I heard his preaching on Homos*xuality, I was done with New Spring Church.

    He proclaimed that he had several homos*xual friends in the congregation and he didn’t know if people are born that way or not because he (Clayton) wasn’t a doctor!! I was flabbergasted !! The Bible is very clear on Homos*xuals and heaven. Only the pure in heart shall see God!

  2. Very good credentials and remarkable life, all things considered. Look forward to hearing him at my church before long.
