While speaking at Dordt College, Jen Hatmaker acknowledged her support for LGBTQ. She also thanked Aaron and Nicole Baart for helping bring her to Dordt.
So, who is Jen Hatmaker?
Hatmaker was asked in an interview whether she thought an LGBT relationship can be holy. Her response was awful. It was unbiblical. It was so bad Life Way stopped selling her books.
So, when asked if an LGBT relationship could be holy, she responded:
She was asked if she’d attend the wedding of one of her gay friends. She said:
“I would attend that wedding with gladness, and I would drink champagne. I want the very best for my gay friends. I want love and happiness and faithfulness and commitment and community. Yes. That’s an easy answer.”
As an article on Pulpit & Pen stated:
“She wants the best for her gay friends. Where is the concern for their soul? Where is the concern that her gay friends will spend eternity in Hell if they continue in their lifestyle and never turn to Jesus Christ for salvation? There is no concern because she knows not God. God’s concern is “not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance (2 Peter 3:9).” Hatmaker’s concern is temporal, wishing that her friends would live a happy and fulfilled life. And she believes this is loving? This is the evilest thing she could do to someone. There is no desire to tell her friends the truth–that truth which would set them free (John 8:32).”
Hatmaker has a following. There’s no doubt about that.
The question for those who admire and respect her is this: where is she leading them?
The question for Aaron Baart is, why are you promoting this?
And the question for Dordt is, why are you allowing this?
