Christian rock star says “I’m Gay,” headlines Ohio PrideFest

Ready for your Christian paradigm to shift once again?  Put your Bible away and expand your tolerance:

  • A Christian contemporary rock star “came out” last week and announced he’s a homosexual.
  • The gay rock star has a now ex wife (who supports his lifestyle), and two young children.
  • The gay rock star’s Christian band will headline a homosexual pride festival in Ohio next weekend.

Got it? Now open your Bible. God’s paradigm never shifts, even when the culture – and the visible church – does.

“For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” Rom. 1:26-27

Trey Pearson is the lead singer from Everyday Sunday, a band played heavily on Top Hits contemporary Christian radio stations. His interview published in 614 Columbus magazine outlines his exciting homosexual coming out journey departure from the truth of God’s Word.

“In sharing this publicly I’m taking another step into health and wholeness by accepting myself, and every part of me. It’s not only an idea for me that I’m gay; It’s my life. This is me being authentic and real with myself and other people. This is a part of who I am,” he said.

Pearson recently appeared on The View, stating:

“I want to see my church change. I want to see our denomination change. There are still people that are teaching these hurtful things and they are the ones that get scared when millions of people connect with it. And they want to say that you’re the false teacher, but they never start to think that it’s their false teaching that causes things like this to happen in the first place.”

Here’s the video:

Former pastor Rob Bell helped to advise and mentor him as he started to come to terms with his sexual orientation.  He told RNS that he still prays regularly and reads the Bible, which he believes does not prohibit committed gay relationships.

“There is absolutely no conflict with accepting who I am and following Jesus,” he said. “God wants me to be healthy, authentic, whole, integrated and my truest self.”

Being true to yourself is exactly opposite of what Christ asks of His followers.  Trey, Jesus wants you to die to self, repent, pick up your cross and follow Him. I hope and pray that the Holy Spirit gives you the eyes and a heart of truth, and the realization that Jesus suffered and died for your sin, and mine.

    I’m sorry to have to tell this young man that you can’t be gay and a Christian! If you’re disobeying God and going against his laws and commandments, then you are not a Christian!

    Another victim of Churchianity! How many false pastors, false brethren will come out supporting this abomination! This young man needs prayer not acceptance. But the very ones that call themselves “Christians” will rather pat themselves on the back and toot their horns saying how tolerant they are as this young man meanders his way into hell. And the hypocrites don’t have a clue they are cheering him on to damnation! Let’s pray for this young man!

      so true Manny, makes you feel like weeping.

      AMEN! Manny1962.

      According to sound Biblical doctrine, he is not, nor ever was born again, as Jesus commanded that one must be in order to see the Kingdom of Heaven.
      We should pray for him, but…if they will not repent; then they have made their choice to forsake the Word of God, and their foolish hearts are darkend; which leads to eternal seperateion from the LORD, in Hell.

    In order to truly love someone through Jesus Christ, we must confront their sin directly, and share with them the realities of an eternal hell…along with the realities of His wonderful sacrifice on a cold hard cross, for us all.

    Rob Bell, a wolf if there was ever one. Rob Bell put this young man on the path to hell.

    Rob, if you read this, get on your knees and ask for forgiveness, call back that young man and confess to him what you did!

    I am gay myself and God showed me how wrong it is and that i need to confront it. Its not a easy path. It stems from childhood abuse and neglect. Gos is dealing with the lies satan told me.
    The thing is these people are very confused and shouldnt be pushed away but should be showed the love of Jesus.
    Allso we must show them a way out of homosexuality. Contrary to belief its not a choice but its an exceptance of lies.
    if God could get me out of it He can do it for everyone.
    Christians should pray for gaydeliverance in masse.
    Only prayer can safe these poor people.

      Marthinus, if God has shown you the truth and you have/are confronting the sin, then please change your first sentence. It should read, “I was gay…” If you are saved, you are a new creation in Christ. You are no longer a homosexual. You may still have temptations, but you are no longer a homosexual. You are a son of God. Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. Praise God and move forward! Fill your mind with the Scriptures, that your mind may be continually renewed by the Spirit. Don’t let your past sin define who you are now.

      Marthinus,

      You make it sound like the one that chooses to be homosexual is to be pitied. You also state it is not a choice, you are wrong. Let me show you from God’s word the error of your thinking…,
      “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness”. Romans 1:18 Notice what sinners do, they suppress God’s truth. We all have a conscience, we know right from wrong. We are all without excuse.
      Homosexuality is birthed out of a burning lust found in the heart, ‘and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.’ Romans 1:27
      Now look at the book of James,’ Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, and He Himself does not tempt anyone. But each one is tempted when he is carried away and enticed by his own lust’. Sin is always an inside job, we cannot blame our upbringing on our choices. Yes, how we are raised does affect us, but in the end, the sins we commit lie within our own hearts.

      I would also ask you to use biblical terminology when referring to this sin, it is called homosexuality, there is nothing ‘gay’ about this lifestyle.

      If you have been born again by the Spirit of God, then you have been set free from the bondage of sin. Christ states so himself in John 8:36, “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed”
      There is forgiveness and mercy in the finished work of Christ, for God is gracious and merciful and desires to save sinners. Let us praise Him for His marvelous grace.

      Thank you Marthinus for your courage. And for recognising your sin. I am very sad for your childhood neglect and abuse and the lies told to you. I hope you are in a church and have loving people around you who can keep pointing you to the Lord and to his Word. And may you be used to help others who are where you have been.

    Amen B!………..
