Skip to comments.Fox News star jumps into 'gay' Christianity
Posted on 08/24/2014 7:06:43 AM PDT by NKP_Vet
The Fox News analyst who made headlines last December for saying she personally met Jesus is now entering the battle over homosexual relationships, suggesting U.S. Christians could support the concept.
Could there be a future where most American Christians support same-sex relationships? asks Kirsten Powers, a former atheist who went public with her conversion to Christianity last year.
If so, it will be due to the emergence of conservative Christians who say orthodox believers can support life-long, monogamous gay relationships without undermining their commitment to biblical authority.
In her column in USA Today, Powers mentions by name evangelical Matthew Vines, the homosexual author of the new book, God and the Gay Christian, as well as New Testament scholar James Brownson, who wrote the 2013 book Bible, Gender, Sexuality.
Powers says Brownson told her: Male-male sex in the ancient world was episodic. It was mainly young boys with older men or male slaves and masters. It was not mutual. These were not relationships, they were not marriage and they were not meant to turn into marriage.
Powers says the issue is not molding biblical teaching to satisfy a personal belief.

How is it that the Christian gay apologists dismiss the Biblical term “abomination” as it is applied to homosexual behavior?
We’ll have to trust her for her testimony of faith. Now she needs to be taught what’s in her Bible.
As reprehensible as the Muslims are, they follow their book to-the-letter!
Liberals always lie to themselves first, then spread the lie to seal the deal for themselves. Liberalism is a mental disease.
re: Well have to trust her for her testimony of faith. Now she needs to be taught whats in her Bible.
Exactly. She is a baby Christian. We often expect new believers who are in the public spotlight to be mature in the faith already. Those who are in her faith community have a responsibility to teach her the Bible. She has a responsibility to study it.
And just so we know it is a sin that would keep one from heaven and eternal life, the Apostle Paul says "Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? ... or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality...
Thus those who practice homosexuality, like mankind in sin, need to repenting of all their sins(even homosexuality) - turning away from them , putting them on Him and to follow Him as Lord or there is no hope.
I forgive her.
The entertainment world will only allow Kirsten to keep her lucrative job if she give something in return, namely, to advance the homosexual agenda so as to bring dishonor to the Faith.
Looks to me like a classic case of ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’. Fame and fortune is all well and good, but God must come first Kirsten. God must be number one in your life.
She also has a responsibility to shut up for awhile. If she accepted Christ less than a year ago, she has a duty not to present herself as authoritative because she isn't. Yet she takes advantage of that public position and in the process leads others to error.
It's one thing not to know or understand. It's quite another to promulgate your views when you can't even discern the truth.
Her position in media makes her an expert on nothing.
I think we've all seen that in action. They are so relieved to find one person...even if it's the village idiot...to swallow their bait.
Kirsten Powers, isn’t she the Anthony Wiener bimbo? Yeah, she has tons of credibility.
re: If she accepted Christ less than a year ago, she has a duty not to present herself as authoritative because she isn’t.
Really don’t consider sexual immorality to be one of the finer points of doctrine. Pretty obvious. Until a few decades ago, there was no question even among heathen Americans.
Or as St. Francis said "It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,"
Many modern day Christians are turned off by the Bible, instead relying on “what God speaks to their heart”. Unfortunately, since they think the Bible is outdated, they won’t turn to the preserved Word, to check to see if what “God has spoken to them” is in fact true. If a modern day Christian believes something that is not supported by scripture, then what they believe comes from the spirit of anti-christ, but they don’t care, because what they believe makes them “feel good.”
You may forgive her.
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but test the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
The political left has its own christianity, and it has a lower case C.
She managed to move from Atheisim to Christianity, pray that God, the Bible, and the church continue to shape her beliefs and spiritual growth. She is young on the faith and like the rest of is, is a work in progress.
