An announcement by a popular Christian music recording artist reportedly has the Christian music world reeling. In an interview with Christianity Today, Jennifer Knapp, 33, “a Dove Award-winning folk rock singer,” acknowledges that the rumors are true: she’s in a same-sex relationship.
“I don’t want to come off as somebody who’s shirking the truth in my life.”

Porneia: Conduct of Disciples in the Sexual Realm
Usually a Christian lifestyle is represented as having meaning or standards. Now the Christian music industry seems stuck with having to choose business over faith. Perhaps the music industry thinks that this doesn’t matter and that business will continue as usual. Will Christians follow the advice of scripture? Will this matter to “mainstream” Christians and will they suddenly be “forced” to boycott music by Jennifer Knapp? Is the Christian Music Industry and Christianity on a slippery slope? Is a Christian singer that proclaims to be a lesbian a conflict of terms? Is Jennifer Knapp shirking the truth, and if so, based on what? (“Sex is Marriage“; “Homosexuality: Sex and Personal Identity Crisis“; “Romantic Attachments: Sin & Righteousness“)
Consider the importance of trusting YHWH, the sacrifice of Messiah and need for the Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit] in your life. Do you think Christians that live a “gay lifestyle” must choose between their faith and a loving relationship, as Jennifer Knapp says she’s felt pressure to do? More importantly, what does the Bible really say? The truth of the matter rests in the choice of being set apart to your Heavenly Father. (“Are You In Danger of a Reprobate Mind? Sexual Sin and YHWH“)
“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
You will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
