Just in time for Gay Pride Month: the “Rainbow Christ Prayer”

Screenshot_2016-06-08-14-08-44-1
Not only is there a prayer to a “Queer Jesus,” it has been translated in 10 languages for any apostate in the world to dishonor our Lord:

Rainbow Christ, you embody all the colors of the world. Rainbows serve as bridges between different realms: heaven and earth, east and west, queer and non-queer. Inspire us to remember the values expressed in the rainbow flag of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community.

The prayer was posted on hypers progressive site, Jesus In Love, promoting a gay Jesus.

Lesbian author Kittredge Cherry and gay theologian Patrick S. Cheng wrote the prayer based on the seven models of the queer Christ from Cheng’s book “From Sin to Amazing Grace: Discovering the Queer Christ.”

Rainbow flags are flying around the world in June for LGBT Pride Month. Rainbows are also an important symbol in many religious traditions. The Rainbow Christ Prayer honors the spiritual values of the LGBTQ movement. 

Progressive Christians believe that homosexuality is not a sin. Scholars say that the Bible does not condemn loving same-sex relationships. Therefore LGBTQ people should be accepted and affirmed by churches. The Rainbow Christ Prayer expresses the belief that LGBTQ people are a natural part of God’s creation.

The Rainbow Christ Prayer has been used by many progressive Christians for individual devotions and group worship. Conservatives denounced it as blasphemy. The translation process inspired grassroots theological reflection on a global scale. Each translator raised questions about a different aspect of the queer Christ: Does Rainbow Christ mean that Christ emits a rainbow or that Christ IS a rainbow? Is the Self-Loving Christ in love with himself? Do LGBT really feel shame about their sexuality? Is the Erotic Christ more about the power of life or about hot sexual practices? What does the Out Christ mean in cultures where there is no expression for “coming out of the closet”? In the Judeo-Christian tradition, the rainbow stands for God’s promise to support all life on earth. The prayer also incorporates the chakra system of seven energy centers of the human body. The LGBTQ prayer takes on new meaning when read in a rainbow spectrum of languages from around the world.

    The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
    Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; and they *said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” Revelation 6

    Rev 1:14 His head and His hair were white like white wool, like snow; and His eyes were like a flame of fire.’ His eyes were as a flame of fire, piercing and penetrating into the very hearts and reins of men, scattering terrors among his adversaries.= Matthew Henry

    There isn’t a verse in all of the Bible that says Christ loves sinners who remain in their filth. To blaspheme a thrice holy God is to add to one’s eternal misery.

    Amen Lyn! Rightly said! They heap upon themselves more and more judgement! The hardness of their heart is unfathomable.

    If anyone doubted that lgbt-ism is a brain disorder…
    There is no such a thing as “progressive Christian” and “conservative Christian”. There is only “Christian”. You either are one, or you are not.
