Another Artist “buys the lie”
Yet another well known Christian entertainer has announced that they are gay. Yesterday Jennifer Knapp announced not only her comeback to the music scene, but also that she’s a lesbian. This is yet another sad commentary in the chronicles of the existence of a fallen world, a world that has willingly rejected the truth of God for the lies of the deceiver. I won’t take the time to go into the details of this event, if you would like read the interview you can go here or you can read the Reuters release here. I’m simply going to present this sad situation from the point of answering the question… how do we respond to occurrences of this nature? Here’s my general observation on addressing issues such as these, this coming from the Apostle Paul…
“Brethren, even if anyone is caught in any trespass, you who are spiritual, restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness; each one looking to yourself, so that you too will not be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” (Galatians 6:1-2)
Jennifer needs our prayers, support, and guidance to encourage her to reject this tragic decision she’s made. This is the call of the church. We have to tell the truth for what it is, homosexuality is a sin, but correction is to be done with a gentle spirit not a spirit of condemnation. I love Jennifer, and I love her soul! I’ll be praying for her and the rest of us should as well!
