Last month, we reported that Amy Grant was hosting a gay wedding at her ranch. This was evidently an early part in the news cycle that would be a lasting controversy for weeks. Amy Grant has since responded and doubled down on her insistence on supporting the sinful union of two women.
Amy Grant has been the Queen of Contemporary Christian Music and her apostacy has been well documented over the years. This wedding is simply the latest iteration of her pursuing being liked by the world. In similar fashion to how she volunteered this information to the pagan Washington Post, she doubles down in an interview with the pagan People Magazine.
“I love my family, I love those brides. They’re wonderful, our family is better, and you should be able to be who you are with your family, and be loved by them.”
People then rehashes the false gospel she told the Washington Post so as to justify her actions.
“Honestly, from a faith perspective, I do always say, ‘Jesus, you just narrowed it down to two things: love God and love each other,'” Grant told the Post. “I mean, hey — that’s pretty simple.”
Loving God and neighbor (as yourself) is a summation of the Law. It is not a summation of the teachings and mission of Christ, particularly as it relates to salvation and the afterlife. This is a common error you see theological liberals make is that they call the summation of the Law the gospel.
She loved another man (as an adulterer) when married.
They always quote “love thy neighbor” but leave out “as thyself” which corresponds with the golden rule. Presumably Amy wouldn’t want to be led to eternity in Hell herself, yet she is happily and arrogantly leading her niece to eternal damnation, mostly as a matter of trying to advance herself.
They are also implicitly denying that Jesus is God. By trying to imply that God the Father and God the Son are in disagreement, they implicitly deny the perfection of God.
“For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother.” – Jesus (Matt 12:50)
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – Jesus (Matt. 7:21)
When Jesus says “if you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15) He absolutely is talking about all of God’s moral commandments. And He makes that clear in Mark 7:14-23, as He shows the distinction between the ceremonial law, traditions of men, and God’s moral law, immediately condemning immorality in verses 21-22, to include specifically condemning sexual immorality (porneia), which includes the abomination of homosexuality (In scripture, porneia is used to describe all forms of sexual immorality, and is given in several scriptures, penned by Paul, Peter, Jude, John of Patmos, and others, as the reason for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah).
Amy is neither loving Jesus nor loving her family.
