‘Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; ‘
1 Timothy 4:1-2
After several prominent Christians recently renounced or reimagined their faith, an author and seminary professor says he has found a pattern in what he calls the “deconversion playbook.”
Christian speaker and author Jen Hatmaker may have been the first person in recent memory to turn heads when announcing she no longer believed in a biblical sexual ethic.
In a defiant Facebook post in 2018, Hatmaker seemingly hit every hot-button political and cultural issue — affirming women’s rights during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, and fighting “white supremacy” and the “dehumanization” of “immigrants” and refugees, until declaring at the end that she “affirms the LGBTQ community, defends their rights and cherishes their humanity.” An in-depth article about Hatmaker’s far-left beliefs, posted on the Pulpit and Pen website, can be read here.
In more recent days, author-turned-pastor Joshua Harris of I Kissed Dating Goodbye fame kissed his entire Christian faith, and his marriage, goodbye.
Both prominent figures have expressed deep grief — not at the parting from their faith —but to the LGBT community for their now-former orthodox beliefs.
“They haven’t gone quietly into the night, so to speak,” he said. “But they feel obligated to share their ‘deconversion’ story, if we can use that phrase, and try to persuade as many people as they can to join them in their newfound direction.”

The Good News
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.
THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
