    Picture the stereotypical liberal academic--the archetypal feminist living the lesbian lifestyle. Is this beyond the reach of Christ's transforming grace and the Spirit's mighty regenerating force? Don't even consider it! Rosaria Butterfield tells the story of her radical conversion from lesbian feminist to pastor's wife and homeschool mom. The world says that it is impossible for a leopard to change its spots and a homosexual to change his/her orientation. But our God specializes in this kind of thing--and yes, it is supernatural. Don't miss this great interview with Rosaria Butterfield!

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    This was a fantastic testimony. Thanks so much for sharing with all of us. Rosaria said a lot of things that really made sense and put this issue into its proper context. I will recommend this mp3 to others.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    A wonderful display of God's sovereign grace. It also brings home the importance of patience, gentleness and scriptural wisdom in conversation with non-believers. A gteat programme and a great blessing.

    It is the GOODNESS of God that leadeth thee to repentence...glad this has been brought out to reveal the futility of fear mongering preaching. I fear however, that the usual treatment of women by fundamentalists will eventually sour this woman on our churches and lead her out as it has me...for she will find little of God's goodness toward women when she discovers teachings like the Article 10 of this website and realizes she and all women are in a dead end for serving our Great God in any serious capacity other than in the kitchen or in dangerous foreign fields, alone...only there will she find the freedom to tell others of His goodness for we prefer our women SILENT and helpless with their hands tied behind their backs. We have no room for God's Jaels and the fierce Godly women of Judges 9:53 and 2 Samuel 20:19 or the many Bible women who acted on their own without consulting male leadership, like Abigail and Hannah and Mary the mother of Jesus and most others as well. We have imposed our culture on women and made them timid and useless for God, unable to make Godly decisions in the churches or to go out and teach others the scriptures unless they leave their home churches and go elsewhere. "LET MY PEOPLE GO THAT THEY MAY SERVE ME." saith the Lord.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    This is a testimony to the evangelistic influence of kindness, hospitality and wisdom. if what the Bible says is true (and it is), then we are all in big trouble eternally (until we obtain the Savior). Jesus made it clear in John 7:17 that it was only through obedience to God's will that one could know the truth.

    Thanks for this. It was a blessing to hear and a reminder that God delivers us from the penalty of our sins and the power of our sins. (3/24/2013)
    “ Homosexuality & the Christian Faith, Butterfield ”
    Below are a couple YouTube videos by Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, regarding her Christian testimony, that may also be helpful. +++ Conversations that Matter: Homosexuality & the Christian Faith or =hkJZSeUGzWw (Free Video at YouTube). Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, author of "The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert" addresses the topic of homosexuality from a Biblical and personal perspective in a fascinating new autobiography of an ex-lesbian English professor who finds Christian faith. +++ Part 2 at or v=L-AQlrcTr5w (Free Video at YouTube). Very interesting question and answer period. Dr. Butterfield's testimony of God's sovereign grace in her life, in paperback format, is entitled: The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert: An English Professor's Journey into Christian Faith by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield. It is available at Crown and Covenant at and elsewhere.

    “ A lot to think about. ”
    This interview was timely for me because just two days ago I downloaded Rosaria's book to my kindle and have almost finished it. One of the most important points for me to ponder was the way her pastor calmly and methodically brought light to her during their visits. I have a son that is very far out of the way and I have had to learn that even though I have narrated every Jonathan Edwards' deprecatory sermon in his two volume works, the communication of such sermons were long ago lost on my son and he was able to cast off their light, and other thundering messages. The last 3 months I have made some progress with him but it has been by spending hours with him and me alone, at restaurants, out picture taking, or other events. The doctrine of hell doesn't scare him but it did keep him from committing suicide more than once. But what does work is an approach where the people that reach him have to woo him. The result has not been accomplished yet, but Rosaria's story is helping me to make some sense of things. To re-evaluate some of our evangelism techniques and couple it with our Christian lives.
