SISTER PAULA ON JANIS JOPLIN AND GLBT PRIDE

Please take this brief video of Sister Paula to heart, and know that what she says is absolutely true: God creates God's LGBT children, and we are to each fulfill the ministries that God has called us to fulfill, regardless of what mere human beings think, say, or do.



Hear what Scripture says to all of God's children: No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. (Isaiah 54:17)

Also, hear the Apostle Paul: For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10)

We have not been put on this earth by God to be mere people-pleasers, but we are to be ourselves in this world, and fight against injustice that in any way demeans or causes the suffering of others. To fight this good fight of faith is an inextricable part of the Christian life!

No one with even an ounce of spiritual discernment can doubt that Sister Paula is God's woman who is fulfilling her calling; teaching each and every one of us what commitment and courage are all about:

I love Sister Paula. I read about Janis Joplin's life and admire her for being herself. it's sad that she passed the way she did.

Hi genevieve: Her authenticity came out of great pain, and that is quite typical, as we eventually come to realize that if people don't accept us as we are their "friendship" is not worth having in the first place. Best wishes, Jerry.
