I had never heard of Kim Burrell until this morning. I watched this viral video of her preaching at her church, and felt the need to say a few words.
Take a moment and replace “homosexuality” with “pride” or “gluttony” or “adultery.”
If we, as Christians, are purposefully engrossing ourselves in one of these sins, we are separating ourselves from God. We are, in a sense, sentencing ourselves to death, because death is a separation from God. When a person becomes a Christian, he is called to turn away from his sin and surrender himself to the authority of God.
We only heard a snippet of Kim’s sermon.
Just as those in the LGBTQ community would say, “Let us live our lives. What does it harm you?” I say as a Jesus follower to those outside the church, “Let her live her life. What does it harm you?” Let her preach to her congregation. Unless she is calling out people to harm others, she’s not doing anything wrong and is merely sharing what she believes with others who support her.
