Religious trauma wrapped up in a beautiful bow
If you have Christian trauma (especially if you’re queer) this album will be a healing experience for you.
This album isn’t Christian
By Mary E. Hollis
This album is not rooted in biblically truth this is not a Christian album this should be in the rap section
This isn’t a Christian album, not even close. It says VERY clearly that being homosexual is a major sin, imagine being so blind that you think you can actively pursue this and still be a child of God. And also dude literally the first song is mega explicit which is also a sin so I mean.........
Honest, raw, breath taking
This album spoke to my soul, restored lost hope, and inspired me to keep on fighting for my right to divine adoption. I am a child of God, Semler is a child of God, and I pray y’all don’t forget it.
Girl you’re amazing

How any of you guys can give this less then a 5 star review and actually live with yourself... I don’t understand I guess you’re to much of idiots, to actually care about someone other you’re self, or you’re “God”!!
This is absolutely incredible. I really needed this album it help me through a really dark time. Absolutely amazing can’t and won’t stop listening to this album!!! Much love.
Beautiful! An album for the conflicted

This album was written for people who grew up in Christianity and may still have faith in the Christian God, but have lost their faith in the church. It’s phrased perfectly in Jesus from Texas “I know a church is not a way to live, but a weekly reunion.” Some people have left reviews saying this isn’t a Christian album because it is explicit or doesn’t praise god, but it is a Christian album, in that it is an album written for people of the Christian faith and about the Christian church. (As a side note, explicitness does not exclude this album from being a Christian album either. I know plenty of Christians who curse. Just because this album is honest about doesn’t mean it’s not Christian.) Anyway, great album. Fantastic lyrics. Really hits you in the gut at times.
An album that cusses and is written by a homosexual should not be considered a Christian album. I believe that we should accept and love everyone but I do not believe that we should have people living a sinful lifestyle as leaders in the Christian faith. I love homosexuals and I love people that cuss. I pray for them often. However I do not believe that we should see these people living in sin as leaders in the Christian faith.
Wow absolute blasphemy

Just unbelievable sad that this is even considered Christian.
Pain lashing out for answers

On my second listen, and I can’t turn it off. The music grows in you. I can’t escape the reflection I see as I listen. I see generations of hurting and hurt. I find myself pleading with God draw near to the broken-hearted who cry these same tears. To hear the songs of those who mourn from the deepest parts of a wounded souls. God of comfort. God who heals. God who is near to those who weep, and those who push you away in depth of grief. God. Come.
These wounds are deep. These wounds are raw.
I don’t believe that the church does “more harm than good.” I know no other organization that, for all of its faults, continues to reach out to every strata of people across the globe to offer food, clean water, airplanes to evacuate people when wars happen, medical care, relief during natural disasters, community, rehab programs for those struggling with addiction‘s, and so much more. There is brokenness. And I feel for someone who does believe that the church does more harm than good, because it means they have been hurt by the church, and can’t see those good things at the moment.
It is my hope and prayer that you find the healing you need. It is my hope and prayer that you do wrestle honestly, but also humbly. We are all just people. We are all trying. The nature of faith is acknowledging we fail.
On behalf of the church I am so sorry for what you’ve experienced. I’m sorry you have so much pain. I hope this encourages you to lead out in reconciliation, whenever you’re ready, rather than to give up. Maybe not everybody on the other end is ready for it either. But I hope someday they will be.
