Skip to comments.Carrie Underwood and the lost church
Posted on 06/19/2012 8:59:03 PM PDT by donna
Pop star Carrie Underwood should take her own advice, which she provided in one of her top hits, and let Jesus Take the Wheel.
In an interview with the London Independent, Underwood, an American Idol winner who professes to be a follower of Jesus, expressed her passionate support for same-sex marriage.
Heres some of what she had to say about that:
I dont know what its like to be told I cant marry somebody I love, and want to marry. I cant imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.
She said she attends a gay friendly church and doesnt believe she has the right to judge anyone. Above all, God wanted us to love others. Its not about setting rules, or [saying] everyone has to be like me. No. Were all different. Thats what makes us special. We have to love each other and get on with each other. Its not up to me to judge anybody.
Now, I dont mean to pick on a young celebrity who has obviously devoted most of her life to music and may have missed out on some key Bible studies.
In fact, what Underwood has to say here is actually indicative of a growing biblical illiteracy within what passes for the Body of Christ in America today even among the clergy.
Heres the bottom line: You cant be a follower of Jesus and condone what He Himself describes as sin.
Neither can you truly love others by purposely not confronting their sin and allowing them to be comfortable with their sin.
Thats not love.

The only sins classified as “abominations” by God are: 1) Homosexuality, 2) Bestiality, and 3) Human Sacrifice. I don’t think God changed His mind about these things between the Old and New Testaments. Hmmm, and there’s nothing in either testament about “intolerance”.
***Above all, God wanted us to love others.***
I respectfully disagree, Ms. Underwood. Above all, God wants us reconcilled to Himself through our acceptance, belief, faith, and trust in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
If thy confess with thine mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe He was raised from the dead, thou shall be saved.
In the last half of the article he goes on to say:
As far as loving others, we are commanded to do it even our enemies. But the biblical view of love is not having sex with them its sharing the gospel.
Above all, God wanted us to love others.”
Interesting that she spoke of God using the PAST tense...
I already knew all this. She was part of an anti-Pro 8 campaign along with LeAnn Rimes I believe. Still this matters little. We have bigger fish to fry than what any celebrity thinks.
Oh, that’s true.

A twisted view of “lov(ing) others” sullies the word “love”; after all, God is love, and whoever does not love doesn’t know God (per 1 John 4:8). Thus, defining God as being accepting of homosexuality is blasphemy.
I didn’t post it because of what a celebrity thinks. I posted it for what Joseph Farah had to say about it.
It’s not loving to cheer on sodomy. A shapeless, mushy “love” is not what God had in mind. Loves does not rejoice in iniquity.
Man, I would have thought Carrie was religiously devout. Goes to show ya.
“growing biblical illiteracy within what passes for the Body of Christ in America today”
Like when a church tells its members that islam has Salvation. And people shrug their shoulders.
“Its not loving to cheer on sodomy. A shapeless, mushy love is not what God had in mind. Loves does not rejoice in iniquity.”
No, she just wants to believe in a loveydovey Santa Claus in the sky that accepts everyone, no matter what they do.
Christians are to judge, they are warned only against judging hypocritically. Like ripping someone for doing stuff they secretly do.
Other than that, they are free to judge away. If you can’t judge, you can’t go to your brother and tell him what he’s done wrong against you or others.
Yes, Carrie is wrong.
Above all God wants us to tell others about the Good News, especially those who haven’t heard it. Carrie wouldn’t do that because that involves a judgment call.
Guess we can’t judge the murderers and rapists and pedophiles either, then, Carrie. Just “love” them.
God never said “All you need is love”. That was the communist, atheist, God hating, Aleister Crowley loving, dope smoking, acid tripping, making fun of abortion with dismembered plastic babies, Beatles.
I'm not saying that's right, but get used to it. It will expand. Because soon most of us will have to say we approve or lose our job. Cisco fired a trainer last year who was excellent as a job, because he had once written a book saying he opposed it. He never did anything wrong on the job, he just held an, "unacceptable position."
A lot of people are going to lose their jobs, if they don't fall in line. I don't think it's a good thing, but it's a reality.
Most know the words of the LORD Jesus in Matthew 7:1 and in Luke 9:37: “Judge not, and ye shall not be judged.”
But this is not all the Lord taught on judging. In John our Lord taught: “Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgement.” (John 7:24)
The Apostle Paul wrote: “But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” (Romans 2:15)
“Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest of matters. Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more the things that pertain to this life?” (1 Corinthians 6:2-3)
Everybody needs love, but love isn’t just a big shapeless hunk of emotional cotton candy.
Corporations are the enforcers.
She could have withheld comment, but I get the idea from the WND article that she really was copacetic with the idea. This wasn’t some insincerity she mouthed in order to keep her promoter happy.
What a shame, one of the more devout sentiments seen in today’s non-CCM country music being voiced by what is, at best, a mere babe in the Lord and a lousy witness. I wonder how the songwriter feels. It would be like writing a Christian hymn, having it become famous, then discovering the artist by which it did was a Mormon or a Buddhist.
Back in the 1990’s banks were sending staff to seminars where we were told gay was normal. They also made everyone tell what culture we came from - except American wasn’t allowed because America has no culture of its own!
I don’t like Hannity but he had a good response a year ago to a homosexual when he said “what if a father LOVED his daughter, or a SON loved his mother?”
Does that excuse give both of them the “right’ to marry?
The fudgepacker basically clammed up.
The days when it’s okay to just withhold comment are coming to an end.
“Back in the 1990s banks were sending staff to seminars where we were told gay was normal.”
That’s what happened to me and my business partners in Hollywood. We were once employees of this (expletive) liberal and we just bolted. It was already bad enough we had to put up acting like we were one of the brain-dead liberals when we were not. When we left, it took a lot of discipline in me not to strangle this POS with my bare hands..
There are other ways to put it, like “Maybe they call me narrow, but I’m only as narrow as the bible (or Jesus Christ).”
All the bankers just kept their mouths shut - afraid of losing their jobs. Me, too.
Hollywood’s favorite bible verse.
How about the sexual harassment’ seminar? The person who was the host of this mandatory shindig for the employees was also gay and blamed men for every sin on earth for 2 hours.
His assistant was a buzz cut lesbian which made the event unbearable..
It would need wild horses for me not to tell them something like “Fine. Now women have a chance to be just as terrible.”
We had a Buddhist lady who used to be a first grade teacher, LOL.
God’s simple design of the human body tells us all we need to know about his feelings on Homosexuals.
Part A plugs into Part B.
The first/ great commandment as Jesus of Nazareth taught the
scribe is “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all your heart,,soul and mind.”(Mathew 22:37-38.) IMO one cannot honestly claim to Love the Lord thy God and at the same time
distort or misrepresent what HE taught. Moses(Genesis 1:27,and 2: 20-24 ) Jesus (Matthew 19:5) and the Apostle Paul ( 1 Corinthians 6:15—7:16) cannot be reconciled to the pop stars’
She probably understands that you do not have much of a career in the entertainment industry if you piss off the Velvet Mafia.
Carrie Underwood is a country cross-over tart. Liked her in the beginning. Now she’s just another diva in love with herself. She’s actually more pop than country anyway.
Throughout both the Old and New Testaments, God told his people over and over again, “Be holy, as I am holy.” Of course there are many things people do that are not holy, but it is impossible to look at sodomy and imagine there is anything holy about it.
That’s how people convince themselves it’s OK—by just not thinking about it. Any normal person who REALLY let’s themselves imagine it for any amount of time will be sickened by the obvious perversity of it.
Same goes for abortion, I might add.
Kinda contradicts John 14:6
“Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
Don’t see how a “church” can do this..
I totally agree.
Islam goes way out of its way to deny the Deity of Christ, the Sacrifice, the Resurrection, the Holy Trinity and the Gospel.
It is not a “sister faith” with Christianity.
bingo, we have the winner. She in the entertainment industry, specifically pop music. Unless she eats sh#t she's not going to be "successful".
That's what I tell my kids about jobs and careers. Being free allows you the freedom to know where to draw the line and how much sh#t ya gotta eat in order to work or live.
Simple decision. She wants to be in the music industry, she puts up with the freak-fest that is the entertainment industry. We all have lines that we won't cross. Goes for the enterainment and ALL jobs. Look at what flag officers in the military are doing everyday in order for them to put their 20 in and get their retirement. Gay pride month in the Pentagon.. yipee. the only thing to know is that the freaks know that in spite of all the cheers and "atta boys/girls" we find homosexuals disgusting pathetic creatures that need psychiatric help with impulse control and gender identification.
