Why we Denounced Delta Sigma Theta

  Testimony by E. B.

Out From Among Them Ministries Leader  

I originally joined Delta Sigma Theta (DST) in 2007 and I never asked The Lord if joining Delta was something I should really do. I'd already made up in my mind when I was an adolescent I wanted to be in this sorority. I was a professing Christian when I joined; I grew up in church but I was really lukewarm. Around 2009 I started back going to church and began seeking The Lord more (although I still wasn't fully submitted yet), and that's when I initially heard a warning directly from GOD about my participation in the sorority. Keep in mind, The Lord was also revealing things prior to that moment, I just didn't see it at the time from being blinded by deception. I initially heard The Lord question, “how can you serve Me and walk around with a false god on you?” The "god" referenced in that question is the Roman goddess, Minerva, which is on the DST crest and in the rituals. In actuality I understood The Lord was referring to Minerva since I was familiar with Greek and Roman mythology; however, it didn't at all cross my mind I was worshipping another god. I took what The Lord said as literal and I threw away the items with the goddess on it; however, I kept paraphernalia that did not. I also decided at the time to pull away from DST but that was short lived. I didn’t renounce because I was still deceived, thus not grasping Jesus was really telling me to separate fully. 


All black greek letter organizations (BGLOs) have false deities tied to them that date back to Babylon and Egypt, not just Greece and Rome. The names differ depending on the culture but it’s the same antichrist spirit. By way of the rituals, oaths, chants, etc., a covenant with Satan is created and it is spiritual bondage. GOD is very clear in His Word (old and new testaments) you can’t be in fellowship with Him and be tied to the enemy (1 Corinthians 10:21). The devil deceives so many into thinking it is acceptable to be a follower of Jesus Christ and be in these organizations, when in fact they are diametrically opposed. Since I grew up in church and served alongside other people in BGLOs, I didn't see anything wrong with it myself. Thankfully, the wonderful love, grace and correction of Jesus Christ wouldn't allow for me to stay ensnared. The warnings from GOD intensified, which included dreams and a vision I personally had, as well as, a friend having a warning dream Jesus instructed her to share with me. The Lord also directed me to specific Scriptures, which showed me the actions I'd done were exactly the same as when the Israelites turned away from The Most High GOD to idols. He revealed to me the state of my soul was at stake, and that applies to anyone in rebellion to The Lord. After 10 years in the sorority, in 2017 is when I finally "got it" and fully understood all the warnings; I repented, renounced and officially withdrew. I'm not saying it was easy but it was one of the best decisions I've made!

Jesus also made it clear I was not to be silent, thus on December 26, 2017 I denounced DST (denounce means to publicly declare something is wrong and evil). From there, in 2018 He gave me the vision of a ministry, with several components, to proclaim His truth on this subject, and that is how Out From Among Them Ministries began! The Lord has/is connected me with many others over the years who are boldly standing for Christ as well; with their support and participation we share God's truth about the spiritual ramifications of these organizations. This is a very serious matter to The Lord, and because of His unfailing love, He will save and set free all those who seek Him (2 Peter 3:9; Luke 4:18; 2 Cor. 3:17).

  Testimony by E. F. 

I became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. in the Spring of 2011. At the time this was one of my greatest accomplishments. I’d formed new sisterly bonds, gained popularity, and began doing more community service than I’d ever done before. However, what I didn’t realize at the time was that, contrary to what had been drilled in my mind, (“Membership in Delta Sigma Theta is a lifetime commitment.”) my time within the sorority would be short-lived.


In night in February of 2014, I kept tossing and turning, barely getting any sleep. When day finally broke, I heard God say take everything you have related to Delta and burn it. While I didn’t understand why, and despite the fact that it hurt me to the core to betray Delta, I trusted God and obeyed.


Since that day, God has taken me higher than I’d ever gone before. He showed me that the ungodly ties found in fraternities and sororities have people trapped and that He’s there wanting to set us all free. However, God can’t free those who are content with captivity. I received a lot of backlash and threats after leaving Delta, and honestly, it hurt, but God gave me His perfect peace and showed me the joy of being persecuted for His Name’s sake!

  Testimony by P. O. 

My testimony is pretty interesting. I spiritually renounced Delta Sigma Theta on December 13, 2017. Literally the Saturday December 9, 2017 prior to that Wednesday, I requested an application to become an Order of the Eastern Star. I actually had someone who would not only get me an application but had the ability to permit my membership into this secret society. My best friend was also going to enter in with me.

My moment of truth and conviction was when I asked God how I can truly live for Him and Him only! God told me to start by obeying His 10 Commandments. I couldn’t remember them but I was lead to Deuteronomy 5. The first commandment is “Thy shall have no other god before me.” Now I’m a fan of skipping over things so that I can adhere to things as I see fit. We all know that’s wrong, but we do it everyday. So I skipped and moved on to the second commandment in which the line “you shall not bow down them nor serve them” jumped out at me. I immediately felt convicted about being in Delta and I was completely terrified! Shortly after I saw a that someone from my chapter publicly denounced their membership in Delta. That was a start to new beginning for me.

Now I’m beyond grateful that I discovered the truth about what I was doing and saw the error of my ways. I officially denounced Delta Sigma Theta on December 29, 2017, and was legally released by withdrawing my membership on January 16, 2018.

It was one of the most emotional and difficult things I had to do. Yet, it was also one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. I can’t even begin explain the magnitude of how denouncing changed my life for the better.

  Testimony by E. D. 

From the time I began initiation, I knew something wasn’t right. I never was comfortable with the whole Minerva goddess sitting on top of the shield. But, I ignored the Holy Spirit’s urging. Each time we sat in sorority meeting, I always had the strangest, most uncomfortable feeling and didn’t understand why. Years later, while going through complications in my marriage I found myself crying out to God on a prayer line. The lady conducting the prayer line was in Italy and I was all the way in Japan. During the call, she began to call out those apart of sororities and fraternities and other secret organizations. Her cry on numerous occasions throughout the call was “Come out from among them says the Lord”! Sure there were other callers on the line, but this lady didn’t know me from a hill of beans. Yet, everything she was saying hit me like a ton of breaks. She explained that these organizations bring about spiritual strongholds and curses on the person apart of them, their families, their marriages, etc. I began to weep, I knew she was speaking to me. That was the catalyst that thrust me into a deep desire to know the Lord more and what He desired of my life. I needed to understand if what she was saying was true. I was saved, sanctified, and filled with the Holy Ghost and could not understand why the Lord had not told me or shown me before now. Needless to say, I searched for and purchased any and everything I could get my hands on concerning spiritual warfare. From the various publications I read, I began to realize that what she told me was indeed true. In Dec of 2016, I denounced my membership from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc publicly via Facebook. There were some angry people that commented, some inboxed. But I didn’t care! Nothing mattered to me more than what God thought of me! However, I had no idea I needed to go through a paperwork process as well. Here it is 2018, and God has blessed me with the opportunity to meet and share with other amazing ladies who have exited the bondage of spiritual slavery in sororities. Through them, I was blessed with the ability to obtain the paperwork and process to complete my exit. I am so grateful for spiritual freedom.

As a young child, my mother always reminded me “Only what you do for Christ will last”. Pledging your love, service, time, etc. is not “doing for Christ”. We claim He is our savior, but what about our Lord! He is calling for a peculiar people. In Romans 12: 2, He commands us to not be conformed to this world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, so that we may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. I have decided to let Him renew my mind and be my Lord!

  Testimony by E.N.W. 

I gave God my "yes" in 2010. A definitive acceptance of His will for my life.

The decision to honor God with my life led me on a journey to purity – a transforming adventure to align my confession of knowing God with my works (Titus 1:15-16). Over the years, God has renewed my thinking and given me a deep revelation of things that kept me in bondage and hindered me from moving forward in achieving His will for my life. Sexual sin, unresolved grief and anger, loneliness, depression and most recently, idolatry. 


I gave God my "yes" but still placed a Greek-lettered organization I pledged during college above Him. Throughout the Bible, we are commanded to love the Lord our God with ALL of our heart, soul, mind, and strength (Matthew 22:37; Luke 10:27; Deuteronomy 6:5; Mark 12:30-31). How can I give God my ALL if I continuously pledge ALL of my love, peace, and happiness to Delta? Or if I participate in rituals and acts of worship that exalt Minerva and not Christ? God is a very jealous God. He will not share His Glory with anything or anyone. He makes it clear in His Word that we exist to bring Him praise and Him alone (Isaiah 43:21; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 1 Peter 4:11). As true Christians, we cannot serve two masters. We must either choose God or the world. There is no gray. These simple Biblical truths led to my decision to fully denounce participation and membership in Delta. 

              "The letters I wore proudly first turned to shame, but now that I am covered by the Blood, I'll never be the same." – EH


I gave God my "yes" eight years ago. Today, I remain steadfast in the commitment I made back then. I choose to serve the one and only master of my life – God! 

  Testimony by L. R.  

My testimony begins with the rededication of my life to Jesus Christ who died on the cross for the remission of our sins on September 9, 2012. On that day - while six months pregnant with my son - my heart, mind, and spirit was open to receive God’s love for me. But in order to fully receive all that He has for me, I had to make a decision to live for Him and not for me. It was then that realized that I had been living my spiritual life based on RELIGION and had not established a RELATIONSHIP with God through Jesus Christ. It was clear that in all of my 27 years, I didn’t know Jesus Christ at all; I’d only known OF HIM through the keeping of spiritual traditions. Since that day, I have been on a quest to develop, grow, and strengthen my spiritual relationship with Jesus – and BOY, have we grown pretty intimate! 


It is because of this relationship, that He found me worthy enough to receive His instruction to come “Out from Among DST” – Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. – after 11 years of membership. When I came to this decision, I didn’t have all of the answers or even a complete understanding of ALL the MANY THINGS that are abominable and outright blasphemous toward God’s Kingdom; and to be completely honest, I’m still discovering things to this day. But there were two things that were made very clear to me – through my membership with Delta: 1) I had given reverence, glory, and honor to the Greek goddess, Minerva, through the vows and oaths that I had taken and the secret rituals that I had willingly committed to keep “sacred” (Exodus 20: 3-5, 23; 22:20; and 23:13); and 2) I had sang praises filled with promises to dedicate – my life; all of my love, peace, and happiness; and even for “my soul to rapture raise” in the name of Delta (or the nine Cardinal Virtues of Delta Sigma Theta) (Psalm 115:1-8; Romans 1:24-25). Even in my developmental stage of spirituality, God found me worthy to receive the revelation and conviction of sin by ignorantly serving two Gods and of idolatry (Hosea 4:6; Matthew 6:24). Receipts of this knowledge, initially obtained via testimonial inquiries, manifested into my desire to independently study and seek to understand how my membership with DST compromises the saving of my soul. In doing so, I vowed to allow the Holy Spirit to guide me; of which ultimately led me to the crossroad of having a decision to make – either God or Minerva – there is no middle (Revelation 3:15-16). Through my unwavering willingness to be a good and faithful servant to Jesus Christ, I made the decision to deny my flesh and not conform to worldly thinking and/or traditions in order to maintain obedience and live in truth. Thus, in late January 2018 I took the steps to formally renounce and denounce my membership with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
