What happens when you say what the Bible says? Well, if it pertains to homosexuality, you get uninvited to the party.
Worse, you get accused of committing a “hate crime,” the worst sin in America today.
Pastor and iconic gospel singer, Kim Burrell, preached a message to her church on the dangers of accepting the homosexual lifestyle into the Christian Church.
“That perverted homosexual spirit is a spirit of delusion and confusion and it has deceived many men and women. And it has caused a stain on the body of Christ. And those homosexual spirits have been angry and they come up against you [saying] ‘you gotta love everybody.’ Sit down you serpent,” Burrell said strongly.
Burrell went on to offer both a warning and a message of forgiveness to Christians who are practicing homosexuality, reports the Christian Post.
“Anybody in the room who is living with a homosexual spirit, beg God to free you. If you play with it in 2017 you’ll die from it. If you play with it in 2017 in God’s house you’ll die from it. Y’all came to hear about carnal, I came to tell you about sin,” she said without fear.
The trouble is, Burrell was set to appear with singer Pharrell on the Ellen Show on Thursday. They were to perform a duet from the upcoming movie, “Hidden Figures.” But after Burrell’s comments went viral, Ellen, one of Hollywood’s most famous lesbians, kicked her off the show.
Ellen and Pharrell took Burrell to task on the show yesterday. “(Burrell) made a statement, and she said some very not nice things about homosexuals, so I didn’t feel that was good of me to have her on the show to give her a platform after she’s saying things about me,” Ellen opened, before turning to Pharrell.
Pharrell echoed Ellen’s sentiments, showcasing the stern discipline for anyone preaching what the Bible says about homosexuality. “There’s no space, there’s no room for any kind of prejudice in 2017 and moving on. There’s no room,” he said, reports USA TODAY.
The singer went on to preach America’s prevailing religion of tolerance: “Whenever you hear some sort of hate speech and you feel like it doesn’t pertain to you because you may not have anything to do with that, all you got to do is put the word black in that sentence, or put gay in that sentence, or put transgender in that sentence, or put white in that sentence and all of the sudden it starts to make sense to you,” said Pharrell.
“I’m telling you, the world is a beautiful place but it does not work without empathy and inclusion. God is love. This Universe is love and that’s the only way it will function.”
Burrell stands by her words, and has issued a response saying that her words were intended for the Church. She explained that she loves everyone and wants to tell the truth.
