Lesbian Creates Gay-Friendly Bible App Referring to God in ‘Gender Neutral Terms’

Let’s all read about Eve and Eve. This Bible ends a little quicker than the original.

Crystal Cheatham reportedly decided to create the “Our Bible” app after her Seventh Day Adventist church told her that Christianity and homosexuality were not compatible, according to PBS.

“I couldn’t find any devotional that represented me. And what about you? It has to be difficult for you too,” Cheatham said in a video promotional for the app. “I created Our Bible app because everyone deserves to be nurtured spiritually.”

So far, the Our Bible app has 20 Bibles and over 300 devotionals and includes special articles, podcasts and meditation exercises for users. Cheatham plans to release a beta version of the app later in June and another version in September.

“There are so many Christians out there that want to be accepting of LGBT people but don’t know how because they haven’t received the resources,” Cheatham said to PBS.

She added that while she has received a “very small” amount of negative messages about the app, mostly “what I’m feeling right now is a pregnant silence, and I’m waiting to figure out the truth of how people are reacting to this.”

The 2014 Religious Landscape Study by the Pew Research Center earlier revealed that majority of the 35,000 people they polled who identify themselves as LGBT are Christians (48 percent), followed by 29 percent who are Protestants and 17 percent Catholics.

This is not the first time the Bible has been modified to “fit in” with the gay community. As earlier reported by GH, Atlanta’s Out Front Theater Company, which focuses on shows with LGBTQ themes, recently came under fire after running a play featuring a gay reimagining of several Bible stories.

  1. Cherry picking the Bible. Hard to avoid the last chapter of Revelations. There are only two more verses after these in the Bible:

    15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

    16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

    17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

    18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

  2. For anyone that reads and understands the Bible as written, there is no such thing as an “LBGT” or “other” type of Christian that knowingly and willfully sins against God. God’s Word is clear. He defines sin according to His own wisdom and the punishment thereof is clearly set forth. We don’t get to “negotiate” with God as to what is sin and what isn’t.

    It isn’t mean to explain this to them in Christian love – it would be worse than mean if we didn’t explain it to them at all. As stated in the Bible, the blood of Christ can cover a multitude of sins, but it can’t and won’t cover up acts that “the world” has deemed “socially acceptable” in spite of what God’s Word says.

  3. She’s just creating her own little twisted world because people are “so mean” She’s doing this because she believes she’ll be placed on a pedestal for her “courage” ..what an asshole

  4. Yeah murder is kinda of “my thing” so I created a bible with 9 commandments. I feel less guilty and stuff and can still call myself a Christian.

  5. Can this gay stuff just go back into
    the closet.I don’t want or need to know
    where your wee-wee or your vee vee goes at night.
    I really don’t.

  6. Whyncha just write your own ‘good book’ and make hetero sex a sin, and decency and modesty a crime, and have your god do tricks and stuff

  7. I’m confused by the survey of the “lgbt” community where 48percent identified as Christian, 29 percent as Protestants, and 17 percent as Catholics. Protestants and Catholics ARE Christians. So a total of 94 percent are Christians?

  8. If I’m doing it right, I’m focusing on the beam in my own eye, instead of everyone else’s sins. I think there are lots of well-meaning Christians who don’t know how to act around homosexuals.

    Say I go out and get drunk. The solution is not to rewrite the Ten Commandments. They didn’t come from man. If this person thinks anything good will come from changing God’s word, that’s a sad mistake.

  9. Another sad, pathetic person with low self-esteem trying desperately to make an impression in this life. This will get some noteriety for awhile then end up being used as gag items in college frat houses and satanist covens by pimple faced teenagers without friends or social skills. Of course it might be interesting to be a fly on the wall when at the end of her life she’s trying to explain this to St. Peter.

  10. You can’t just rewrite God’s word. Write your own missive and call it whatever you want, but it is not the Bible and God will not like it. Poor lost souls.

  11. She would be nurtured with the TRUTH. Her lifestyle choice is sinful in the eyes of God.

    It has nothing to do with society or non-inclusive Christians. It is His command that we stay sexually pure within the constraints of His design for marriage.

    If she does not repent, she will be lost.

  12. Annon; Catholics are taught the Mary, Jesus’ mother was without sin; Christians know that everyone is a sinner in need of Jesus wrath-bearing death and resurrection. Catholics add the traditions of men (papal communications ex cathedera) to the Word of God, just as the Pharisees did, for which Jesus rebuked them. For centuries, Catholics were forbidden to read the Bible; Christians read it almost every day.

  13. The reason for the “pregnant silence” is because Christians don’t get into hate the sinner stuff. Social media tends to be personal, not necessarily a good place to go for quality, theological discussions.
