British Christian singer Vicky Beeching just announced to the world that she is a lesbian, but sees no problem with her faith.
She said she knew she was a lesbian at age 13 and had struggled with that and what the Bible says about homosexuality. In various interviews, Beeching stated:
“I’m gay. What Jesus taught was a radical message of welcome and inclusion and love. I feel certain God loves me just the way I am.”
“It was in children’s picture books about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah – hailstones of fire raining down on these cities known for the ‘abomination’ of homosexuality. It was viewed as a terrible evil, the cause of the floods. I don’t think that my parents brought it up – it was just a given.”
Excuse me? The Genesis Flood took place in chapters 6-9 whereas the account of Sodom and Gomorrah’s sinful debauchery doesn’t start until Genesis 13. How could it have been the cause of the Flood? All of the Bible versions I have just say that the hearts of mankind was evil continually, but none of them say the Flood was caused by homosexuality.
Additionally, what part of Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:3-5 doesn’t Beeching understand?
“And Pharisees came up to him and tested him by asking, ‘Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?’ He answered, ‘Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?”
Jesus was referring to Genesis 1:27-28 where God stated that He made man in His own image, male and female He created them. God then instructed them to be fruitful and multiply. God never said anything about creating them male and male or female and female then telling them to go forward and multiply.
Beeching also ignores the warning given in Romans 1:18-31 that condemns homosexuality. It never says anything about loving them and embracing them and holding nothing against them.
Jesus never repealed or revoked God’s law in Leviticus 20:13 which states:
“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
When I read what God the Father and God the Son say about homosexuality, I don’t see Jesus welcoming or including them in the saved, unless they confess and turn away from their sins. Beeching’s confession was not one of committing a sin, but one of justifying the sin. It appears she has no intention of turning away from her sin, therefore, I would question the sincerity and understanding of her Christian faith.
I’m not questioning whether or not Beeching is a Christian, but I am wondering about the degree to which she is compromising her faith with the sinful ways of a debauched world. Until she does, I would not listen to her music nor would I recommend anyone else listen to her public hypocrisy.
