Perhaps those who jumped on the Kirsten Powers "conversion" when it came out have learned a valuable lesson. Never, ever celebrate the announced conversion of modern American celebrities prematurely. Give the individual a chance to produce fruit meet for repentance. I was hopeful but patient when it came to the Powers profession of faith. And then I started to see signs that gave me a glimpse into the sort of conversion Kirsten had actually experienced. For instance, I read her article on why Christians have to stop rejecting gay marriage and start accepting homosexuals into their community, repentance or not. The message is that God loves everyone just the way they are and makes no demands on anyone's life to change in any way, well, unless they are really, really bad as we define bad.
As it turns out, Kirsten has found Rome much more to her liking than the Tim Keller, PCA, version of Christianity. Of course Powers details of her visit by Jesus and her subsequence conversion should have been enough for any discerning Christian to recognize that there was a problem with Powers Christian conversion from the very start. Powers said the most profound impact her Christian conversion has had on her life is that she came to "view everyone as God's child and that means that everyone deserves grace and respect." If you can't see anything wrong with that statement, you need to read your Bible. You know, where Paul said, Not at all; for we have already charged that both Jews and Greeks are all under sin. (Ro 3:9) And again, There is none who does good, There is not even one. (Rom. 3:12) No Kirsten, no one deserves grace...thats why it is called grace...because no one deserves it. And oh, not everyone is a child of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil are obvious: anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor the one who does not love his brother. (1 Jn 3:10)
Why do these things happen? It really is quite obvious according to the Scripture. They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us. (1 Jn 2:19)
There is no question that the Roman church is an apostate church. She left the faith centuries ago. Genuine Christians are or shortly after conversion become protestant Christians, protesting the heresy spewed forth from the Vatican. It is not shocking to see people like Kirsten Powers attracted to an organization like Rome because Rome has perverted the image of God and the truth of Christ for centuries.
