Over the weekend, former homosexuals and transsexuals, including a survivor of the horrific Pulse nightclub shooting who gave his life to Christ following the attack, marched in Washington DC to celebrate the great work Christ has done in their lives as they find freedom from their pasts and redemption and peace in His love.
Elizabeth Johnston, the Activist Mommy, was honored to attend and speak to the small but powerful crowd that marched the streets of DC to share not pride, but praise to the Lord Jesus Christ who has set them free from our sin.
Brothers and sisters in Christ from all walks of life gathered together to march, to speak, to worship, and to pray, and to most of all, let the world know the stories of, as Elizabeth put it, “one of the most marginalized and censored groups of individuals in our culture.”
This is the group the LGBTQ community doesn’t want you to know about–people who have chosen to turn their back on their sin and put their faith and trust in our Redeemer.
“I believe some of you here today are still battling [LGBT] thoughts and temptations. God wants to deliver you from every yoke of bondage,” said Anite Angelo, a woman who lived over 30 years as a homosexual, to the crowd on Saturday. “He wants you to take every thought captive and lay aside every weight in the sin that so easily does entangle you.”
“I am pro-choice,” Elizabeth explained in her powerful speech. “I believe those who choose to engage in homosexual sin also have the right not to engage in homosexuality, and they have the choice to seek therapy for their unnatural and unwanted desires.”
“I don’t share the same testimony as they do,” she added. “I got a testimony. Jesus Christ set me free as well, and he will set you free from your sin, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual. I had my lust, my pride, and my sin that I had to repent of, and Jesus Christ set me free as well.”
Amen–we all have our struggles against the flesh and sin that nailed Christ to the cross. But no matter where we have come from, we all share that blessed hope of His Salvation, which He won for us on that very same cross.
The only reason this marginalized group of ex-LGBT Christians is so hated by the left is they have chosen to walk away from a sin that the left has desperately been trying to normalize–and they’ve made it a politically correct carnal sin to suggest that anyone needs saving from a life of same-sex attraction or gender confusion, no matter how much a given individual may struggle with these desires.
But this is America, Elizabeth went on to explain. If everyone has the right to openly declare their sexual preference or gender identity, then Christians have the right to speak openly of Christ’s power to save anyone from their sin–gay or straight.
“I am tolerant,” Elizabeth explained. “I want homosexuals to have the freedom to speak their mind and beliefs. Do we not? And I believe those who believe who believe homosexuality is a sin against God also have the right under God and under our first amendment to speak our beliefs.”
“That is tolerance,” she concluded.
