ANOTHER REAL, RAW, "CHRISTIAN" MOMMY BLOGGER COMES OUT [Excerpts]
Now that Jen Hatmaker has made Christian and Gay Okay, another popular blogger many Christian women follow announced on Facebook and Twitter that she has a new girlfriend.
[It was reported that] Christian author Glennon Doyle Melton — known as the “ultimate confessional writer” for her honest portrayals of her struggling marriage, addiction and eating disorder — has opened up with another big revelation. She is dating again, her new partner is a woman and that woman is celebrity soccer champ Abby Wambach.
A couple of things should be jumping out at you right now. I’m hoping it’s Romans:1:26–27, 1 Corinthians:6:9–11, 1 Timothy:1:9–10 and Jude:1:7
Melton has long affirmed that same-sex marriage is not sinful and celebrating love in various forms....Melton [divorced from her husband of 14 years Craig], says her husband supports her homosexual relationship and that they make a “beautiful, modern family” together.
Like many Christian women bloggers, Melton is known for the “feels” writing style so popular today: real, raw, authentic, brokenness that focuses on our “messiness” (the replacement word for sin), rather than the new creation she should be in Christ, but isn’t. Instead of encouraging women to overcome sin through confession, her confessional style glorifies and normalizes the very sin Jesus shed his blood to forgive.
Why am I writing about this? Because Melton regularly speaks at Christian events and churches. Because she has been deceiving her huge following into thinking that she is a true follower of Jesus Christ....and you probably have friends who follow her too. And finally, because we ought to pray not only for those deceived, but for Melton herself. In His timing, perhaps the Lord will impress upon her the need to repent.
