The video has already been seen by over 1M people.
An “ex-lesbian” has participated in a Facebook video for e-vangelist organization Anchored North that has already garnered more than 1 million views.
“Love is Love” is the pilfered LGBT sentiment used in the video’s title which follows Emily Thomes who says she came out as a lesbian at 15 and began dating women; she demanded Christianity accept her because she felt God was supposed to be “chill” with what she was “cool” with.
“If you were truly a Christian, you were on my side,” Thomes says. “Judge not. God being love meant God was nice…”
During her late teens Thomes says she had become “Super-wild” and was in serial relationships with women. She finally settled down with one woman who had two kids at 22.
During that time she went to a Bible study, thus beginning her journey toward salvation.
“I realized that there are people in the same place, and they were saved, and they were changed, and that God could do that for me, too, and that I needed that,” she says. “I could hold onto my sin and reject God, or I could turn to Him… So that was it.”
Her journey continues in the video as she transforms into a straight woman who eventually meets a man and falls in love
“People say to me all the time, ’I was born this way.’ Thomes says. “I say, ’Okay, me too. You’re not born with right affections. That’s why Jesus had to come. You feeling a desire for sin just proves you need grace like me.”
Comments are more critical than supportive on Facebook with many saying the young woman has been brainwashed.
Thomes concludes the video by saying being gay is unholy.
“God calls us not to heterosexuality, but holiness,” Thomes concludes in the video (below). “It’s not gay to straight, it’s lost to saved.”
