Lauren Daigle – Can We Talk

Lauren Daigle

I just saw this video for the first time this morning and it is sad to me in  alot of ways. I am going to handle this as kindly as I can.  I will share some of her quotes and my commentary.

Surprisingly I do not have an issue with her going on the Ellen show and taking career advice from her. Sometimes we Christians act like gay people are anathema to us however many gay people that I have met have  been the kindest, most loving people and probably would do more for you than most Christians. However we have to be careful in business dealings who we associate with.

Having said that, in the Church you cannot be a practicing homosexual and claim to be following God or Jesus! But I will cover that later.

Carrying on with my thoughts! “….if you don’t follow what they want that is where the criticism will come.”

Hmmmm….that is a fair statement however when you live in the Christian world and say you are a Christian you are going to be looked at more closely ESPECIALLY if you are in a position of power. ie Minister, Entertainer etc.

“You cannot expect people to understand the decisions you make IF they are not in the position to make them!” 

We all make decisions every day good or bad. I believe that many people are upset because every time you have had the opportunity to promote the Gospel to people from the world you have cowered away from it. It seems your career and political correctness is standing in your way. We are supposed to be proud of having a God and King to serve and proclaim it boldly. When you shy away from it you open yourself up to the criticism you are feeling now. I have seen people say they are taking you off their playlists  and although you may not understand it some Believers want other Christians in leadership to take a stand.

Romans 1:16

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

To tell people that we cannot understand because we are disassociated is “disingenuous” at best. We may not know your Industry (while some of us do know it fairly well) but we do know what is expected from a Follower of Yeshua (Jesus)

The Interviewer at 3.50 seconds says “You’ve gone mainstream…..” That says a lot right there.

At 8:25 is the Big one…..”do you feel that homosexuality is a sin to” which Lauren answers “You know I can’t honestly answer on that in the sense of I have too many people I love that, they are homosexuals ummmm I dont know….I actually had a conversation about it last night but I cant say one way or the other, Im not God, so when people ask questions like that, thats my goto….I just say read the Bible and find out for yourself and when you find out let me know, because Im learning too.”

 

So Lauren I did read my Bible so here goes:

Genesis 1:27

27 So God created mankind in his own image,
    in the image of God he created them;
    male and female he created them.

God knew the order of things He wanted!

Genesis 2:24
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Matthew 19:5
And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Mark 10:6-9

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;

And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

1 Corinthians 7:2
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

Hebrews 13:4
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.

1 John 2-15-17 (about careers etc)

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

Deut 22:5 (cross dressing not allowed)
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.

Lev 18:22 (self explanatory)
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 (ok a little commentary needed here….we do not kill, nor harrass, nor hurt anyone that is gay ever….)
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (Yes we can change – such as were some of you)

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Romans 1:26-28 (again self explanatory)

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;


Galatians 5:19-21

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.


Romans 1:24-27

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

So God has  spoken on this topic multiple times with multiple authors. As Believers we choose to believe Him or not and that is on us. But with many Believers reading their Bibles more and more now many are watching what the Leaders in Churches and Entertainment are doing and will call you out. What you choose to do or say from here on in is up to you.

So I have done the study and here is some of it. I will pray for you Lauren that you don’t get caught up in the world of Hollywood, Secular Music , that life as so many others have. Their managers (handlers) leading them down a dar road…..Just be aware. I share this with love
