God loves Lesbians.

I got divorced.

I cut my hair into a short pixie. 

I have a best friend that is a Lesbian.

Apparently, this makes me a Lesbian. Really? Is that STILL where we are folks? Could we not have learned from Jesus?

I've been asked straight up "Umm...I saw your pictures on facebook...are you....?"

My ex husband has been asked...straight up..."Is Amanda a..."

It ridiciculous that the church of the living God is still spending time and energies on such nonsence.

For the record: I have short hair. I have lesbian/gay friends that I love. I am not a Lesbian.

Jesus encountered this you know....repeatedly. Loving everyone right where they were...and He was rebuked and talked about for it...

Matthew 9 says 10-11Later when Jesus was eating supper at Matthew's house with his close followers, a lot of disreputable characters came and joined them. When the Pharisees saw him keeping this kind of company, they had a fit, and lit into Jesus' followers. "What kind of example is this from your Teacher, acting cozy with crooks and riffraff?"
 12-13Jesus, overhearing, shot back, "Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? Go figure out what this Scripture means: 'I'm after mercy, not religion.' I'm here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders."


Please don't misunderstand my writings here and take off with them...I do not consider homosexuals in any way "crooks and rifraff". They are people with families, feelings, and the need for a Savior just like you and I.

What am I saying here is...GROW UP. Love people. No matter what. Make them special. God does. Aren't we His hands? Aren't we His feet?

You can't "catch" homosexuality or sin....unless you want to. Period. 

I'm not worried if people accuse me of "switching teams". Because I'm not after religion...I'm after souls. I'm after loving the whole world. I'm after mercy and offering peace. A way out of sin. I'm under a mandate. LOVE. 

I am worried that I will BE Jesus to everyone. That's my supreme worry.

I refuse to live any other way.

I encourage you today...love anyone and everyone. BE God to people. He doesn't need you...but they do.

Grace n Peace,

  1. Lord Jesus help us all!!! We are all fallen creatures and saved only by God's grace! This is what a "RELIGOUS" spirit will do for you!Make you ugly and judgemental! Most people accuse you of things that are questionable to either cover up their own shortcomings or try and devert the light off of them on to someone else! It's blame in another form although misplaced! You go Amanda!!!!!!! Marsha

  2. I also have lesbian/gay friends but also know that even though I love them very much this is still considered an abomination to the Lord our God and must be repented of which means to turn from our wicked ways.

  3. We all have sin in our lives. We all must repent and receive mercy and grace. I'm not advocating acceptance of sin. I'm advocating loving people where they are and letting God work in and through them. We. Are. Not. God.

  4. i recently was asked to lead worship at a church. their theme for the year was "love revolution 2011". it was plastered everywhere. banners, bumper stickers, media stuff, etc..

    i thought it would be a cool idea to do the gungor song "white man" to go along with their theme. the chorus of the song is "God is love, and He loves everyone." other parts of the song point out how God loves atheists, lesbians, communists, terrorists--- and that God doesn't belong to religion or to republicans.

    once the pastors heard the song they were very scared by the lyrics. "our people are just not ready for this. could you please do something else?" wow. and wow.

    i wanted to lash out but i used self control (the toughest fruit of the spirit for me!)
    i did let them know that the song is about love and that they should tweak their definition of LOVE.

    if you are throwing sinners under the bus then toss me under there too because i have sinned within the last minute or two, ya know?!?

    God is love. WE ALL NEED LOVE.

  5. And I say, "Amen and amen!"
