Emily Thomes

Emily Thomes once lived a lesbian lifestyle.  She considered herself a Christian but only believed those parts of the Bible that didn’t condemn her way of life.  She began attending a Bible study about the attributes of God and as she came to understand God better she also began to see herself as she really was.  Here is her description of what happened.

I was grieved that my whole life I’d been sinning against Him, not only in my dating life but in every other way, too. My drunkenness, my haughtiness, my refusal to submit to what had been plain in His word all along but that I’d denied because I didn’t want to give up my autonomy; I claimed faith but had no concern with what God actually said or wanted of me. I was overwhelmed with the love and mercy He was showing me in letting me live long enough to repent and truly trust in Him. I didn’t know what my life would be like or what I was going to do, but I knew what I was not going to do anymore. It was incredibly clear. That day was the day the Lord granted me eyes to see Him as holy and righteous and myself as a sinner desperately in need of His forgiveness and grace.

She now has a website in which she tries to help other experience this same deliverance from sin.

The site includes her testimony of how she was saved.
