Kittredge Cherry: Lesbian, Modernist, and Deceiver
By David J. Stewart
"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." —2nd Peter 2:1
Please understand that I don't condemn anyone, for the Bible condemns all of us as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners. My salvation solely rests in Christ's righteousness, because of the precious blood that He gave for our sins. My intention is not to be unkind; but rather, to expose false teachings that lead people away from the truth of God's Word.
A popular modernist today is ordained lesbian minister, Kittredge Cherry. According to her blasphemous website at www.jesusinlove.org...
Kittredge Cherry is an author, spiritual director and art historian whose ministry put her on the cutting edge of the homosexuality debates at the National Council of Churches (USA) and the World Council of Churches. She is the motivational force behind JesusInLove.org.
Kittredge Cherry was ordained by Metropolitan Community Churches and served as clergy in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community for seven years until health issues forced her into a more contemplative life. She worked extensively with people from every branch of Christianity, including the Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox and Evangelical traditions. She now considers herself a free agent for Christ in the world.
One of Kitt’s biological and spiritual ancestors is John Donne, the 17th century English poet and clergyman who wrote, “No man is an island.” Kitt was born and raised in Iowa. She met her life partner, Audrey, when they were both students at the University of Iowa. After earning degrees in journalism and art history, Kitt worked as a newspaper reporter and studied in Japan on a Rotary International Journalism Scholarship. She was baptized at age 25 at an interdenominational church in Japan. She went on to earn a Master of Divinity degree from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California.
From looking at Ms. Cherry's website, you could easily get the impression that she is a Christian if you didn't know any better. She speaks of Jesus, love, prayer, and spiritual matters; HOWEVER, the honest truth is that Kittredge Cherry is a modernist, i.e., she falsely gives the impression of being a Christian, but she is not. Ms. Cherry is an unsaved heathen bound for the lake of Fire without Christ. Her salvation testimony is non-existent.
Her website mentions that she was baptized in Japan. This is not salvation. Ms. Cherry makes no mention of being born-again, or of repentance towards God, or of the condemnation of God's Law upon sinners. Our churches are becoming saturated with liberalism, with a shallow social gospel that requires no repentance. There can be NO salvation apart from God's Law.
Kittredge Cherry Presents Jesus as a Queer (and that's the term she uses)
In a deceitful maneuver, Ms. Cherry presents her homosexual views in a hypothetical manner; yet, her work is interpreted by homosexuals as defining the true character of Christ. This is masterful deception of the Devil.
Kittredge Cherry states...
Surprising answers come in Jesus in Love, a novel that re-imagines Christ’s legendary life as an erotic, mystical adventure in first-century Palestine. Jesus has today’s queer sensibilities and sexual sophistication as he lives out the Christian story in this novel of spiritual and sexual awakening ... He falls in love with people of both sexes. Society doesn’t understand him ... Jesus, the narrator, speaks in an engaging, up-to-date tone as he reveals his intimate relationships with John the beloved disciple (a gay man mourning his lover’s death)..." - http://www.jesusinlove.org/newbook.php
There are some horrible people in this world, and Kittredge Cherry is one of them. I say this, not to be unkind, but to expose her for assassinated the character of my Savior, Jesus Christ. Hebrews 1:9 tells us that Jesus HATED iniquity! Psalm 97:10 says, "Ye that love the LORD, hate evil." I've yet to find one homosexual who speaks out against evil. The reason why is obvious--they are committing evil themselves. Homosexuality is a sin.
The entire Chapter of Romans one is dedicated to revealing the origin, cause, and wickedness of homosexuality. Yet, Ms. Cherry fully rejects the plain teachings of Scripture, and puts forth the notion that Jesus and John the disciple were homosexual lovers. There's nothing any more blasphemous and rotten to say about the Savior than what Kittredge Cherry has said. She ought to be horribly ashamed of herself for attacking the Lord. Ms. Cherry goes on to state...
Ultimately he [Jesus] leads disciples of both sexes beyond ordinary human consciousness to a place where sexuality and spirituality are one. (emphasis added)
Blasphemy! Miss Cherry would lead us to believe that homosexuality is of God, and spiritually good. Nothing could be further from the Truth of God's Word... "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" (Leviticus 20:13).
Cutting-edge theology, medieval mysticism and the latest archeological discoveries undergird this artful page-turner filled with spiritual insights and sensuality. Jesus in Love frees the reader to imagine and experience Christ in new ways. - http://www.jesusinlove.org/newbook.php
You've got to be kidding... CUTTING-EDGE THEOLOGY? Do you see how deceptive Miss Cherry is? She presents her attack on the Bible as if it's fiction, but then she claims to have used "cutting-edge theology" to do so. So the SAME blasphemous work she presents to the homosexual community as a definitive work, is simultaneously presented to the religious right as only being a fictitious novel.
This is the same deceitful tactic which was used by the evolutionists when they began teaching their LIES. What was originally taught as theories and speculation is nowadays taught as fact and irrefutable science. Of course, the evolutionists are LIARS.
Today's Apostate Churches are Filled with Modernists!
Photo to Right: A homosexual painting by artist, Becki Jayne
The artwork to the right is also found on JesusInLove.org (Ms. Kittredge website). The painting was designed to identify a rejected Christ with rejected homosexuals. The message is evil, unbiblical, and blasphemous to God Almighty! This is another master deception by Satan to dupe naive people into believing that homosexuals are equal to Jesus in their sufferings.
Jesus was persecuted because He preached the TRUTH... John 8:40, "But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham." Jesus was rejected by most people because He spoke the Truth!
Homosexuals on the other hand, are not accepted because homosexuality is unhealthy, unnatural, uncivilized, and ungodly!!! We're talking apples and oranges here folks. How dare Becki Jayne, Kittredge Cherry, and other homosexuals, pervert the meaning of the cross of Christ, by alleging that their rejection is no different than what Jesus endured. Homosexuality MUST be rejected because it goes hand-in-hand with apostasy, AIDS, the deterioration of society, and the judgment of God.
Marsha Stevens is a professed Christian, who operates the ministry BALM (Born Again Lesbian Music). Sadly, Bill Gaither has befriended her, singing in concert with her, and has remained silent about the sin of homosexuality. Apostasy has crept into so many churches that today that a Bible-believing Christian is criticized for speaking out against sin. Tragically, the average professed "Christian" today is more upset with people like me (who preach against sin), than they are with the rockers, lesbians, abortionists, strippers, and shysters who deceitfully CLAIM to be "Christian."
Our churches are filled with modernists who aren't what they appear to be, "...having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." That "power" is the Gospel (Romans 1:16). Modernists are everywhere today! They talk about the Bible, spiritual concepts, Biblical teachings, and the principles Jesus taught; BUT, they are unsaved, unregenerated, unrepentant, and on their way to Hell without Jesus Christ. They will certainly die in their sins if they continue on their present path of destruction.
I find the artwork above very offensive and blasphemous. Jesus was not a "faggot." The message being implied by the above picture is that any criticisms or rejection of homosexuality is equal to Christ-rejection. Talk about REVERSE-PSYCHOLOGY! Homosexuality is DIAMETRICALLY opposed to everything the Word of God teaches! The Bible is incontrovertible concerning the sinfulness of homosexuality. Any child knows that it was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. God called homosexuals "sodomites" in the Old Testament (King James Bible), linking their wicked sin with the destruction which fell upon Sodom and Gomorrah.
Is it any wonder why the apostate New International Version NIV translators completely removed the word "sodomite" from the Bible? To no surprise, the same parent company which publishes the NIV also publishes The Joy of Gay Sex. A homosexual recently wrote me, alleging that Ezekiel 16:49-50 indicates that Sodom wasn't destroyed mainly for homosexuality. Argue as they may, the hideous sin which is spotlighted in Genesis 19:4-11 is homosexuality. By the way, these same Scriptures in Genesis reveal the violence, lawlessness, cold-heartedness, and vile affections which become more evident in a homosexualized society. The United States is headed for some dark times as homosexuality saturates our society and churches.
Those Who Seek to Legitimize and Justify Homosexuality are LIARS!
Photo to Left: A popular gay painting of Judas showing homosexual affection to Christ. This is sick!
Anyone who pretends that Jesus was a homosexual is a deceiver! Judas did not kiss Jesus with homosexual affection. Jesus and John were not gay lovers! Kittredge Cherry's new book, Jesus In Love, presents Jesus and John as gay lovers. Kittredge Cherry is unjust towards the Savior. She admits that she CAN'T prove Jesus was homosexual, but she writes a fictitious novel attacking Him nevertheless.
She has assassinated Jesus' character! Woe unto those who attack the Lord, and take His name in vain! To say that Christ was a homosexual is the same as calling Him a sinner, which is a denial of His deity. Jesus hated iniquity (Hebrews 1:9). The Word of God states that homosexuality is an ABOMINATION (i.e., hate coupled with disgust) to God. Homosexuality is utterly disgusting.
Here's an enlightening article from World Net Daily about expert liars, who know that the best way to destroy an innocent man, is to tell BIG LIES ...
In his 1925 autobiography "Mein Kampf," Hitler – who actually did lie his country into war, and a whole lot more – explained with remarkable insight the fantastic power of lying:
… [I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods.
It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.
For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes. ...
Let's bring this explanation down to earth with another example: Suppose, right before an election, one candidate accuses his opponent of immoral or illegal behavior. Even if the charges are totally false, and even if the accused answers the charges credibly and effectively, "the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it."
Which means, no matter how effectively the accused candidate answers the charges, some people will still believe he's guilty, and many others will still retain varying degrees of doubt and uncertainty regarding the accused, who may well lose the election due to the cloud hanging over his head. This, as Hitler said, is the magic of lying that "is known to all expert liars in this world …"

Liars! Jesus was NOT a homosexual. If you listen to all these idiots today who are promoting homosexuality, you'd think everyone was a homosexual. Homosexuality is a total denial of Jesus Christ! To deny the clear teachings of the Word of God is to deny Christ, for they are one and the same (John1:1-3,14; Revelation 19:13). Jesus is the Living Word; the Bible is the Written Word. Woe unto the fools who despise God's Law. Homosexuals are a perverted bunch.
Isaiah 47:10, "For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness... Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee..." Isaiah 5:20, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7)!
I don't care if it's fictitious or not, anyone who even suggests that my precious Savior may have been a morally reprehensible homosexual is a LIAR!
Child Molester and Bank Robber Worship?
Sound crazy? It is, about as crazy as the title of one of Kittredge Cherry's books called: Equal Rites: Lesbian and Gay Worship, Ceremonies, and Celebrations. Even the title of her book is a big lie! There is NO such thing as lesbian and gay worship... unless you're worshipping Satan! Now a lesbian may come to Christ for forgiveness, and be saved, and worship Jesus; BUT, it is NOT "lesbian worship" anymore than king David practiced "murderer worship." King David had sinned horribly. He committed adultery with Bathsheba, and got her pregnant.
To hide his evil, David conspired to have Uriah--Bathsheba's husband--killed (and he was). In Psalm 51 we read David's words of sorrow, regret, and repentance for the evils he had done. In sharp contrast, homosexuals today have no remorse, regret, or desire to cease from their sinful lifestyle. In fact, they are trying to JUSTIFY their wickedness, even by corrupting the Bible to do so (Romans 1:25). King David didn't write a book titled, Murderer Worship!!! How about a book called, Adulterous Murderer Worship?
This is EXACTLY what Ms. Cherry has done with the woeful sin of homosexuality. David didn't brag about his sins and defend his innocence; rather, he confessed his woeful GUILT to God in Psalm 51:4... "Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest." David repented. In sharp contrast, UNREPENTANT religious homosexuals have crept into our churches and colleges, shaking young people's faith in the Word of God. Homosexuality is of the Devil.
The Greatest Love is Rooted in Truth
1st John 3:18 states...
"My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth."
Kittredge Cherry loves with her words, but not with the Truth of God's Word. She certainly is NO Christian. When speaks of the "spirit," she is speaking of a familiar spirit (a demonic spirit); not, the Holy Spirit of God. Jesus clearly said in John 4:24 that God can ONLY be worshipped in truth. This is why Jesus said that the people in Mark 7:7 were worshipping God in VAIN, because they were following the traditions of men instead of the commandments of God.
Homosexuals today are living in denial, and God allows them to do so to their own demise. God will not force anyone to repent and come to Jesus Christ for salvation. The decision is up to each individual (Romans 14:12). The homosexual community is working relentlessly to pervert the Word of God, twist the truth, and confuse public school children. They are succeeding; but thank God, the truth is always here for those who care enough to seek for it.

Homosexuality is a horrible sin condemned in Romans Chapter one. Kittredge Cherry "considers herself a free agent for Christ in the world" (SOURCE). A "free agent for Christ," who goes around portraying Jesus as a homosexual? Miss Kittredge is clearly an unsaved modernist who propagates religious liberalism. She ought to be ashamed of herself. God deliver us from today's modernists who outwardly appear as Christians, but inwardly are ravening wolves (Matthew 7:15). We are seeing an increase in UNREPENTANT homosexuals who claim to be "Christians."
Truly, God is willing to forgive anyone (Isaiah 1:18), including homosexuals. God wants everyone to come to repentance (2nd Peter 3:9). However, God will NEVER accept homosexuality or those seeking to legitimize it. That's the big difference! You've got many critics today who accuse us Christians of being judgmental. However, Jesus told us to "judge" in John 7:24... "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." 1st Timothy 5:20 is very clear, "Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear." What does this Scripture mean? Are we to gossip and tell everyone about other's sins? No, of course not.
This Scripture is speaking of OPEN sin, such as in the case of the man living in fornication in 1st Corinthians 5:1, "It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you..." Notice that the sin was "commonly" reported, i.e., it was no secret. Kittredge Cherry not only commits the sin of homosexuality with her gay lover, but she parades it defiantly in the face of God, twisting the Scriptures, and even portraying the Savior as a sodomite.
Kittredge Cherry's work, Jesus In Love is not about love, acceptance, and equal rights--it's about wickedness, corrupting the truth, and rebellion against God. Please don't be deceived by Kittredge Cherry, Marsha Stevens, Anita Cadonau, and other lesbian modernists who exploit Christianity to further the Homosexualization of America and our children.
