Christian Singer Jennifer Knapp Discusses Being Gay
Three years ago I preached a sermon on Sunday morning titled, What God Really Thinks About Gay People. As part of that sermon I asserted that the issue of homosexuality was going to become one of THE defining issues for the church in the next generation.
Last week, Christian singer, Jennifer Knapp, appeared on Larry King Live to discuss the recent revelation that she is gay. As part of the interview, a pastor, Bob Botsford, was also involved and Knapp was extremely defiant in her interaction with him.
The interview is both interesting and challenging. I am curious as to what you think as you watch it.
Should Christians be calling out Jennifer publicly about this sin of hers?
Do we focus too much on the sin of homosexuality to the exclusion of other sins?
Is it the “end of the story” if a gay person can find a pastor who will tell them that homosexuality is not a sin?
If someone is going to carry the title of “Christian” in a public manner (singer, pastor, politician), are they to be held to a higher public standard?
Would you go to a Jennifer Knapp concert?
