DOES GOD HATE LESBIANS?

Good Morning, Mighty Woman of God!

I pray that you are blessed and highly favored of the Lord today.  I speak blessings of peace upon your life.

Does God hate lesbians?  This is a question that is always controversial in today's society and within the Body of Christ.  The answer is NO!  God does not hate lesbians.  God despises the sexual act, but not the person.  If it were so, then we should also say that God hates His people, all of us.  The reason why I say all of us is because we all have sinned in our lives.  And as long as we live, there will be sin in our lives in one way or another.  God does not like the sin in our lives, but He is so merciful that He forgives us our sins.  This does not give us the 'green light' to continue to do the same thing over and over again and just ask God to forgive us.  He will not be mocked.

I don't know what causes a woman to have sex with another woman.  I do not claim to know any kind of medical or mental knowledge of the reasons either.  I don't know if it is a matter of a certain genetic flaw.  I am simply stating that I know for a fact that God loves the sinner, not the sin.  God was fully aware of what type of person you would be before you were born and what sins you were going to commit. 

I had the opportunity to spend time with a young lady that was a lesbian.  I spent the majority of the time reading either my bible or other spiritual books.  One day she just starting crying and when I asked her what was wrong, she stated that she felt that God did not love her because she was with women.  She was really torn apart because of this and she asked me if I could ask God if He loved her.  She knew that I was a minister and she asked me if I hated her.  I prayed with her asking God to forgive her and to show her His mercy and favor.  We spent a couple of hours in deep prayer and God gave her the gift of speaking in tongues.  After she began to speak in tongues, she cried uncontrollably and kept pacing around the room.  I just watched and I knew that God was working a miracle in her life.  I watched as she went through the experience, not knowing what was happening but she was a new creature at that moment.  Now, I cannot say whether or not she was delivered from being with women, but I do know that the Spirit of the Lord was present in her life.  She received the answers that she had asked of me and from that moment on; she knew that God loved her.

I have never seen that young lady again.  I do not know what became of her but I do know that she was speaking in tongues and that is a manifestation of the Holy Spirit.  I know what the bible says concerning this particular act of sin.  I do not condone same sex relationships and will stand firm on my belief.  Like I stated before, God despises the act of sin, not the sinner, so I will stand with the Lord on this matter.  The day that I spent in prayer with that young lady, God revealed something to the both of us.  I did not expect God to bless someone with those characteristics but He did.  He proved Himself to both of us as a loving and merciful God.  I guess in the back of my mind I was suprised that God would make such a deposit in that young lady's life.  I thought her sin was too bad, even for God.

If you are struggling with the fact that you love women or know someone that is, my suggestion to you is to pray.  I also want you to know that this story is true and God will reveal Himself to whomever He choses.  If you hate someone because of their sexual choices, pray.  Don't hate person, hate the sin.

  1. I can clear up any confusion that you might have about why some women have sex with other women by explaining why I do it:
    The only reason that I have sex with my girlfriend is that I love her and am sexually attracted to her.
    This, as opposed to straight couples, who have sex because they love each other and/or are sexually attracted to one another. I know it's really complicated but I can go into more depth if you would like.
