Jackie Hill Perry, author and spoken word artist, recently told comedian and content creator Kev On Stage (Kevin Fredericks) that while she loves her husband, she still experiences same-sex attraction.
Hill Perry, who has previously shared her story of leaving lesbianism for Jesus, told Kev On Stage that, as a Christian, she will always face temptation.
“I feel the need to make that a point because another problematic assumption that people bring into all their conversations with those who are same-sex attracted is that to come to Jesus means that you will be straight,” she said. “That you will not experience the temptations that come with being whoever you call yourself to be.”
“But that implies that to be a Christian is to not have temptation. Yet, we serve a God who was tempted in all respects but was without sin,” she added. “So how are you telling me to be like Christ means that I won’t struggle? That’s nowhere in the Bible.”
