"For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error."-Paul, Romans 1

Not sure how this whole story of Jennifer Knapp being a Christian and a homosexual woman has evolved, but I know I have listened to her music for years, and found her to be a genuine talented singer and song writer, whose lyrics have great truth in them.
Where is her heart with the Lord? I would think she has turned away from the truth, if she can say she is happy to live in her sin.

John tells us in his 1st Epistle: "They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us."

I still can listen to her music, and yet it does have a different affect on me, as I realize she is an unbeliever, and she needs to repent and return to her first love.

Time to get down on my knees and pray 
"Lord, undo me!" 
Put away my flesh and bone 
'Til You own this spirit through me 
Lord I am wanting, needing, guilty and greedy

 Unrighteous, unholy; undo me.
 Undo me! 

Abba Father You must wonder why 
More times than Peter I have denied. 
Three nails and a cross to prove I owe my life eternally to you! 

And it's time To get down on my knees and pray
 "Lord, undo me!" 

Put away my flesh and bone 
'Til You own this spirit through me Lord, Undo me."

I understand how a Christian may struggle with sin, but when the life of discipleship is abandoned, it grieves me deeply. She does not give me the same impression as someone who is maliciously attacking God's sheep, but at the very least she is deceived. I hurt for her and for the name of Christ.

Good thoughts from your heart Craver. thanks for sharing that.

I pray that perhaps somehow I might be able to help others, who seem to have strayed, to see the Word in all its glorious light. This at times may cause us to be convicted, and that can be a good thing, can't it.
From godly conviction comes reconciliation, compassion, loving acceptance, and love.

This is why I visited her blog and shared with her, and I shall pray for her.

Good post brother Don!
I agree with Craver that she is surely deceived.

I hope she repents Paul. I pray our Lord will convict her, and bring her to Himself, and she will see her deception and pride.
