Amy Grant Explains the Ex-vangelical Definition of Love

Amy Grant expresses the popular "Progressive Christian" or Ex-vangelical definitions of Jesus and Love.

The “progressive
Christian movement rejects biblical definitions of love, and they have some powerful spokespersons.

In a 2021 interview, well-known recording artist Amy Grant addressed the issue of homosexuality and said, “It doesn’t matter how we behave. It doesn’t matter how we’re wired. We’re all our best selves when we believe to our core: ‘I’m loved.’ And then our creativity flourishes… When we’re loved, we’re brave enough to say yes to every good impulse that comes to us.” (source)

Grant's words deny these Scriptural truths: 

✔ God’s design is heterosexual marriage (Genesis 5:2; Matthew 19:4-5). 

✔ Gay lifestyles are sinful, unnatural, and soul-damaging (Romans 1:16-32). 

✔ No one living a sinful lifestyle is saved (1 Corinthian 6:91 John 3:6).

✔ We should never trust our human impulses (Proverbs 3:5; Proverbs 28:26; Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 7:21-22).

In 2022, Grant hosted her niece’s same-sex wedding and she explained, “Honestly, from a faith perspective, I do always say, ‘Jesus, you just narrowed it down to two things: love God and love each other.’ I mean, hey, that’s pretty simple.” (source)

It is pretty simple but Grant has missed it.

Love for God: “Whoever has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me” John 14:21 

Love for Man“Warn each other every day, while it is still 'today,' so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God.” Hebrews 3:13

It's important to understand that all New Testament commands are Christ's commands, not just those He verbalized. See Only Christ's Words? 

To see the many Scriptures that warn against homosexuality, see Biblical Teaching on Homosexuality.

There was a time I greatly enjoyed Amy Grant's music. I'm sad to see that she has walked away from biblical beliefs which I thought she once held. This seems to be especially prevalent in the Christian music industry. See Trendy Apostasy: Marty Sampson.
