A View from the Altar / Jennifer who?
Skip to content

Jennifer who?

Big headlines in the secular news announce that “Christian” singer Jennifer Knapp is gay and is making a big comeback after a seven-year “exile,” with “exile” being in quotes because that’s their word, not mine.  Christians everywhere are asking, “Jennifer who?”

So, having learnt by experience to be a bit chary about entertainers, I began to ask my soul, Soul, suppose you’d sold around three or four records in the past umpteen years, and suppose you’d always wanted to be famous and rich but lacked the looks, talent, and savvy to pull it off.  And suppose you’d hit on the idea of pulling a stunt to get headlines and boost your record sales.  What sort of stunt might turn the trick for you?  Now, I’m not sayin’, but just suppose.

But come to think of it, what fires up the Secular Man’s news engines up any faster than a Christian who suddenly turns up gay?

Now I’m reading in the Secular Man’s news that she’s been in “exile” for something like seven years.  Not wanting to be hasty about pronouncing this a lot of phony hype, I’ll say only that it’s hard to see what this is supposed to mean when a cursory internet search on “jennifer knapp” turns up plenty of stuff from the past few years.  Just nothing that’s ever going to compete with the Really Big Names in Christian Entertainment.

It’s not hard to see why her career trajectory never got all that high.  One of the top Youtube search hits turns up a song called Diamond in the Rough in which she refrains that she’ll “hold onto you like a diamond in the rough.”  Say wha…?  And from the same song, another line is sure to make Isaac Watts cringe, “Snake’s in the grass better step on the gas.”

Oh, well.

Two weeks ago, neither you nor I knew Mizz Knapp.  Based on the quality of what she’s put out on Youtube, it’s quite likely she’ll return to the exile whence she came.  Meanwhile, the Secular Man will poke his finger in the collective eye of the church by associating God’s people with a person who unashamedly advertises her poor morals.  Saints, don’t be misled by this sort of thing.

One of the surest signs of a Christian is repentance, something we’d all do well to remember, and something we should sincerely pray God will grant to lesbians everywhere.  Besides, as Matthew Henry said, “Those who aim to ruin the church, can never do that, but will ruin themselves.”
