UPDATED 07.29.13: Returning from his successful visit to the faithful in Rio de Janeiro, His Holiness Pope Francis said:

"Who am I to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the Lord?"

THIS IS THE LORD'S DOING AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR SIGHT!

May the conversation continue!


His Holiness Pope Francis
Apostolic Palace
00120 Vatican City



The Holy Spirit distinctly and expressly declares
that in latter times
some will turn away from the faith,
giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits
and doctrines that demons teach,
Through the hypocrisy and pretensions of liars
whose consciences are seared (cauterized),
Who forbid people to marry
(1 Timothy 4:1-3)

Your Holiness,

Greetings in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ!

As a Successor of Peter, whom Jesus Christ Himself chose as the rock upon which He built His Church in the earth, it would seem He once again has need of Your Holiness' leadership as new revelations from God's Word have emerged through an arduous Holy Spirit led study of the Holy Scriptures.

I believe the Holy Spirit has led me to send a version of this open letter to a few good men in the Body of Christ, as well as Her Majesty The Queen, Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England, and now I believe the Holy Spirit has directed me to send a version of this letter to Your Holiness for consideration as well.  

I believe He would agree that the undertaking that is about to take place in the Body of Christ is going to need a Father's touch.

I believe it would be a great travesty if the Body of Christ was denied Your Holiness' participation and active leadership involvement as this new move of God that I'm about to share with Your Holiness advances forward.  While I recognize Your Holiness may decline to actively lead this move, I am writing today to encourage Your Holiness' prayerful consideration of the matters discussed herein.

I believe by the power of the Holy Spirit that Your Holiness and the Roman Catholic Church would add a dimension to the successful implementation of these things of God with a unique perspective and an extraordinary boldness, effectiveness, and appreciation for the Word of God, while at the same time advancing the cause of Christ to certain children of God that Protestant Shepherds simply often times cannot relate to for a variety of reasons.

My name is Brian Anthony Bowen, and I am the author of a forthcoming book entitled, “The Bed Keeper,” which I believe will launch the Body of Christ into yet a more perfect Revelation of God's will in the earth today.  I write to refer Your Holiness to the message Pastor George Pearsons shared with his congregation at Eagle Mountain International Church on November 6, 2011, entitled:

Hearts Wide Open: The Touch of Compassion, Part 5

Also, please consider Brother Kenneth Copeland's prophetic utterance regarding our place in the Kingdom of God from November 11, 2011, (available from YouTube) which seems to confirm by the Power of the Holy Spirit, what I am about to share with Your Holiness in this letter. Your Holiness can review the transcript to Brother Copeland's prophetic utterance here.

Please consider also Sister Billye Brim's teaching from her series, "Daniel" wherein she (along with Pastors George and Terri Pearsons) reveal to Eagle Mountain International Church a prophecy uttered by God through Brother Justus Du Plessis regarding this new move of God way back in August 1996, and my interpretation of its meaning here.

Please also review other pertinent open letters to:

Open Letter to All Christians

On November 1, 2011, I was invited by Brother Tim Clinton ( @zoneradiolive on Twitter ), to participate in a discussion on TheZoneRadioShow.org (Cleveland, Ohio) with Pastor Dr. Darrell Scott, Senior Pastor of New Spirit Revival Center www.nsrcministries.org, and Pastor Jathan K. Austin ( @PastorJKA on Twitter ), regarding new revelation from God’s Word on the issue that has most divided the Church over the centuries, and how we can at last bridge the gap between the sides and come into a new understanding of what God’s Word does (and doesn’t say) about homosexuality and gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people (yes, there is a difference)….and at long last, give them incentive to come to Church, and give the Church incentive to invite us….all based strictly on God’s Word….but in a way none of us most likely expected to happen.

Please explore this final draft of The Bed Keeper.

Your Holiness will find therein a collection of revelations from Scripture pertaining not only to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, but also how we interact prophetically in cooperation with the Body of Christ to prepare the Bride of Christ for His return, and how God has assigned us specific tasks within the Church; most notably, the task of bringing our offerings to His altar, and how the traditional teachings of Christianity on this subject has inadvertently prevented our offerings from reaching God's altar. In the process of reading this material, Your Holiness will learn how both Roman Catholic and Protestant Shepherds have inadvertently "robbed the tithes from God," by preventing LGBT people from coming to Church to include ours on His altar as well.  Further, this has also prevented the manifestation of the Glory of the Lord to the extent witnessed and testified to in 2 Chronicles 7, when the fire fell from heaven and consumed the offerings on the altar, and the Glory of the Lord filled the temple. Please see Chapter 20: Fire From Heaven for a more detailed explanation.

Since first beginning to receive this revelation from Scripture nearly 7 years ago, this message has continued to grow and mature to the point it is today, as Scripture has testified to Scripture, and 2 or 3 witnesses from Scripture have been revealed that verify each word I share in The Bed Keeper. This has resulted in the book being rather wordy, but at least it doesn’t leave any room for doubt, though there will always be room for some amount of disagreement, especially when first examining the evidence, even though it comes directly from Scripture itself.

As I watched Pastor George’s sermon, I couldn’t help but feel that (whether in the Spirit or in the natural), he already knew that on November 1, 2011, something new had happened in the Church, and that the Body of Christ will never be the same. Perhaps I’m mistaken, but as he spoke of his Church’s outreach to people in the community whom most had not come in contact with or fellowshipped with much before, I couldn’t help but sense that he was speaking of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community; many of whom are already Christians in search of a Church to call home, where Scripture means what it says…and doesn’t mean what it doesn’t say.

Pastor George seemed to indicate that not only would folks like us be coming to Eagle Mountain International Church, but that they would be training up ministers to assist in this new ingathering as the prayers for the Great Awakening appear to have awakened even those people that most members of the Body of Christ had written off as prodigals many centuries ago. I hope Your Holiness and the Roman Catholic Church is part of this process as well, and encourage Your Holiness' Ministers to contact Pastor George to confirm Your Holiness' support of this new endeavor!

It is also my sincere hope that Your Holiness' Ministers will stand in prayer for this work of God in the Church today. I am praying that The Bed Keeper helps Your Holiness, Your Holiness' Ministers, and the Roman Catholic Church to have as complete a revelation from God’s Word as is humanly possible, in order to dispel the myths traditional Christianity has held as truth in times past, but also in order to help the Church position herself in a place where she is at last the Glorious Church, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. It just so happens as Your Holiness will see from Chapter 20: Fire From Heaven, that until LGBT people are affirmed in faith bodies all over the world, and also contributing our offerings on His altar, Jesus is prophetically prevented from returning to the earth until all prophecies are fulfilled (in accordance with Luke 24:44), including God’s Own prophecy to eunuchs in Isaiah 55:11-56:12 (whom Jesus teaches includes eunuchs born so from our mother’s womb in Matthew 19:11-12), whom Your Holiness and I today refer to as gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Please see Chapter 4: Messengers of The King for a more detailed explanation.

It is further my sincere hope that if Your Holiness, Your Holiness' Ministers, or the Roman Catholic Church addresses the question in public venues, that time will be taken to first study these findings from The Bed Keeper, in order to become more intimately acquainted with what the differences are between "homosexuality" and "homosexual people" and "homosexual acts engaged in by heterosexual married men," so that Your Holiness' Ministers and the Roman Catholic Church can provide thorough and Scripturally accurate responses that not only avoids condemning all gay people out of hand, but at the same time, address all the heterosexual men engaged in cheating on their wives with other men, who currently get off scott free as the Church has traditionally only scapegoated gay people, without ever considering that both Scripture (and life itself) portray a very different reality; a reality that once confronted, may indeed prove to be the cure for HIV/AIDS as homosexual and heterosexual mixing comes to an end.  Please see Chapter 19: Go and Sin No More for a more detailed explanation. 

As Your Holiness may know, currently new infection rates of HIV/AIDS occur in the World Health Organization's MSM category (men who have sex with men, regardless of their identified sexuality). The second highest new infection rate is among women (particularly women of color) who contract the disease from heterosexual partners. As the Church focuses its energy (and blame) on gay men, it would seem that these types of transmissions are impossible without the intermingling of heterosexual men having relations with both women AND gay men. Ignoring this not only fails to address the situation as honestly as Scripture itself does, but also provides these heterosexual men with immunity from scrutiny (and correction) from the Church, and prevents LGBT people from coming to many congregations as the safe spaces for worship they claim to be. 

"Safe Space" can no longer mean "you're welcome to come to Church if you're gay and bring your offerings." No, from this day forward, "Safe Space" can only be truly defined as "you're welcome to come to Church if you're gay and bring your offerings because we see that Scripture does not condemn gay people themselves, but rather heterosexual married men engaging in adultery." After all, that's what the Scriptures actually say, and our unawareness of that fact will no longer provide Shepherds immunity from criticism and correction from the LGBT community, nor from judgment upon entire congregations from God Himself:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you that you shall be no priest to Me; seeing you have forgotten the law of your God, I will also forget your children. Hosea 4:6

Ignorance to God's Word never changes God's Word, and He will hold blind Shepherds to account, just as He said He would in Isaiah 56:10-12, 1 Corinthians 5-7, Malachi 2-3, and various other passages of Scripture. The Body of Christ can no longer afford to keep its head buried in the sand on this issue if we truly want to prepare the Church for the return of Jesus Christ! Every Christian who ever lived and died before us and our own personal resurrections are at stake!  God didn't just send Jesus to save us from eternal torment, but to raise us to eternal life. That will not happen without the Return of Christ, and He cannot return until all prophecies are fulfilled (Luke 24:44), and that includes Isaiah 55:11-56:12. See Chapter 4: Messengers of The King for a more detailed explanation.

Simply saying "homosexuality is sin" condemns all gay people (many of whom do not even have sexual relations of any kind), while at the same time ignoring the heterosexual married men who are actually engaged in the exact form of adultery that is actually being addressed specifically throughout Scripture. Of course they are also the ones who bring the tithes to the Church (since most gay people have felt excluded by such public messages from the Church), and so it can take a brave Shepherd like Pastor George to shed light on this fact, and I hope Your Holiness will conjoin his leadership with that of the Roman Catholic Church. In short, homosexuality has been elevated to an 11th Commandment status, and has replaced God's Own Commandment against heterosexual adultery.

Doing so is to judge God's Own Law. But of course, I understand that is what traditional Christianity has always taught, and that traditions of men have long ago blind sided many Shepherds to the distinctions I hope to convey to Your Holiness, Your Holiness' Ministers, the Roman Catholic Church--and indeed the entire Body of Christ--throughout The Bed Keeper. 

Of equally disturbing concern is that each Sunday most Church leadership quotes Malachi 3:8-10 to remind the congregation that "robbing the tithe from God prevents the windows from heaven opening and prevents God from being able to pour out a blessing over our lives" in an effort to unScripturally goad them into giving 10% of their income, rather than the amount they have purposed in their hearts as the Apostle Paul directs Christians in 2 Corinthians 9:6-10.

However, if we more closely examine the Scripture referred to from Malachi, we see it actually begins in Malachi 2, not Malachi 3, and is addressed to priests themselves who are the ones robbing God of the tithes by preventing all the tithes from even reaching God's altar, because of messages from the Church that discourage LGBT people from coming to His House of Prayer for ALL people to include ours as well....as well as our parents, friends and families who have felt as equally shunned by the Church as we have been. Please see Chapter 20: Fire From Heaven for a more detailed explanation of that aspect.

On the other hand, we have LGBT people who have not only been Christians all their lives, but at the same time have felt sentenced to politely knock outside the Church door, instead of being affirmed according to God's Own Prophecy from Isaiah 55:11-56:12. Until that prophecy becomes fulfilled, according to Jesus in Luke 24:44, He is prophetically prevented from returning to the earth. It occurs to me that we can be as saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Spirit as we want, but without the return of Jesus Christ, and our subsequent bodily resurrection, we will never attain the eternal life that He died to give us all. When we look carefully at John 3:16, we see that not only does Jesus save us from hell, but also raises us to eternal life with Him. As a Christian, I want both. There! I admit I’m a Christian for a rather selfish reason…but then again, aren’t we all?

I have already begun sharing this message on Twitter, and through the blog version of the book, more than 24,000 people in 81 countries have already taken a glimpse into the future of the Body of Christ, and seen that it is indeed good! I hope Your Holiness' Ministers will follow me on Twitter where I am known as @TheBedKeeper so that Your Holiness can see how I envision parts of this message can best be communicated to the LGBT community, and in the meantime, that Your Holiness will begin the process of praying with Your Holiness' Ministers regarding the best practices for revealing this message to members of the Roman Catholic Church, (as well as all your associate Shepherds and ministries throughout the Body of Christ), and come to lead them in the best way to reveal this message to members of their own flocks, and LGBT people in their own communities.

I know this is a lot to take in, and I don’t expect that it will happen overnight. However, I will be sending this information to other leading ministries as well, with the expectation that God will eventually appoint me to work under a ministry that has demonstrated not only an understanding of the material, but also a commitment to continue to now share it with the rest of the Body of Christ. Pastor George’s sermon on November 6, 2011, the prophetic utterance God ministered through Brother Copeland on November 11, 2011, and Justus Du Plessis's prophetic utterance from August 1996, are so far the surest signs I have received from God that the preaching of the word I participated in on November 1, 2011 has already taken effect! 

Now, I’m left only to wonder if Your Holiness, Your Holiness' Ministers and the Roman Catholic Church will stand in prayer for this new revelation from God's Word and its successful implementation throughout Your Holiness' Ministry network--and indeed throughout the Body of Christ--and provide us all with an opportunity for this message to be revealed from within the Church outward, rather than be forced to reveal this message to the masses and hope the Church catches up, and thereby sacrifice the last remaining shreds of Scriptural and moral authority the Church seems to have in the earth today, (and quite possibly push LGBT people even further away as their suspicions of the Church’s errors are proven correct). Their reaction to the message will be dependant solely on the way the Church handles this; either as an “Angels and Demons” type expose’ from someone outside the Church, or as a responsible Body of Believers who are open enough to correction to right the ship ourselves, just as we did concerning the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, women, slavery, prosperity, and health. Throughout the process, prayer will be the power that binds us in united purpose as we see prophecy begin to unfold in front of our very eyes. 

It is my intent to publish this book on February 1, 2012 unless a strong ministry steps forward that is willing to lead this message from within the Church instead, because this isn’t just about the American Christian Church. God has placed LGBT people in every nation, every city, every race, every family, and every RELIGION (and denominations therein)! I sincerely believe as Christianity opens the path to God for Muslim, Buddhist, Jewish, Pagan, Wiccan, Universalist, Mormon, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Black Israelite, and even Atheist and Agnostic gay people, He will use LGBT people themselves to spread the Word amongst ourselves, cross every religious dividing line, and invite them into the Christian fold. See Chapter 21: GAZA: Holy Land for Gays for a more detailed explanation of this vision.

It’s a big job, and we need a big ministry to pull it off.  But no ministry can do it alone, and no ministry can succeed without a powerful force of intercessory prayers pleading on God's behalf for His Will to be done in the earth, and for His Word to go forth and accomplish that which He pleases and purposes, so it will indeed PROSPER in the thing for which He sent it.

Key Scriptures:

Matthew 19:11-12 Jesus proves we are born gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender (See Chapter 1 of The Bed Keeper for more details).  Currently the CCC (1618) only mentions eunuchs who remain celibate for the purposes of serving the Kingdom and to "go out and meet the Bridegroom wherever He goes," even as we see Jesus Himself proclaim three types of eunuchs, which most definitely included the celibate, but also the BORN EUNUCHS.  The CCC also refers to LGBT people as "intrinsically disordered" when in fact, Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit all confirm we are part of God's Divinely Created Order and in full compliance with Natural Law, as defined by Scripture, even if the Roman Catholic Church does not agree.  I believe this Chapter of The Bed Keeper will enlighten Your Holiness to the inadequacies of traditional Roman Catholic understandings, teachings and communications with the masses when it comes to what Scripture truly says to the contrary.

Isaiah 55:11-56:12 God demands LGBT people be included and affirmed in Church (and demands our offerings be included on His altar) before Jesus can return. (See Chapter 1,Chapter 3, Chapter 4 and Chapter 20 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

2 Chronicles 7:1-3 reads like a prophecy of what happens after our offerings get to God’s altar; the fire from heaven consumes the offerings, and the glory of the Lord fills the house (See Chapter 20 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

Luke 24:44 Jesus confirms all prophecies must be fulfilled before He can return to the earth (SeeChapter 4 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

1 Timothy 4:1-3 The Holy Spirit warns that in the latter times, some Christians would fall away from the faith, having been seduced by doctrines demons teach, through the hypocrisy and pretense of liars whose consciences have been seared, who “forbid people to marry.” At no other time in human history has all elements contained in this particular prophecy been fulfilled as we see today right before our very eyes. (See Chapter 2 and Chapter 17 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

2 Kings 9:29-37 and Esther 1:1-22 Read as analogies of LGBT people delivering a message from the King to the Bride of Christ, urging her to come to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and what happens if She refuses (Queen Jezebel and Queen Vashti), and what happens if She accepts. (Queen Esther) (See Chapter 4 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

Romans 1 and Leviticus 18 both condemn heterosexual married men who cheated on their wives and/or worshipped idols, both of which are violations of the 10 Commandments. These passages also help us see the importance of not mixing heterosexual and homosexual interactions, and could quite possibly be the cure for HIV/AIDS. (See Chapter 16, Chapter 18 and Chapter 19 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

1 Corinthians 6:9-12 condemns preachers whoring the Church for money (and for keeping boys on the side) in part of a lengthy letter that begins in 1 Corinthians 5:1 and goes all the way through till 1 Corinthians 7:40, even as Paul ordains single gender matrimony in the very same letter in 1 Corinthians 7:8-9 (See Chapter 2 and Chapter 19 of The Bed Keeper for more details)

Other various chapters of The Bed Keeper are geared toward helping LGBT people understand Christian principles such as the New Covenant (Chapter 5), Keeping the Sabbath and Understanding the Significance of Pentecost (Chapter 6), Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Chapter 7), Bearing Fruit for God (Chapter 8), FAITH (Chapter 9), Creation and Evolution (Chapter 11 and Chapter 12) the Significance of the Rainbow Flag and God’s Rainbow Covenant (Chapter 13), the Destruction of Sodom (Chapter 14 and Chapter 15), and understanding the difference between homosexual expressions committed by heterosexual men, and being homosexual, and the importance of keeping the marriage bed (even a gay marriage bed) undefiled (Chapter 19).

It has been my intent to not only reveal the message from God’s Word to the churches regarding LGBT people being affirmed in every church and bringing their offerings to God’s altar in order for Jesus to return, but also to train up LGBT believers in the very basic principles of the faith as I have learned from Pastors Joel and Victoria Osteen of Lakewood Church (Houston, Texas), Brother Kenneth and Sister Gloria Copeland of Kenneth Copeland Ministries (Ft. Worth, Texas), Pastors George and Terri Pearsons of Eagle Mountain International Church (Ft. Worth, Texas), Sister Billye Brim of Prayer Mountain in the Ozarks (Branson, Missouri), Joyce Meyer Ministries (St. Louis, Missouri), as well as many others in the Charismatic move of God. I pray Your Holiness will especially lift these leaders up in prayer as they take those first brave steps into the future of the Body of Christ.

I also wanted to help Your Holiness to understand my motivation. I do not see myself becoming a preacher or minister. I think my time is better spent staying at home, studying God's Word, praying, and simply sharing my findings as the Holy Spirit continues to lead me through Scripture. I believe I am called to teach, not preach. I am at a point where I believe the message is mature enough to be iron clad (Scripturally speaking) and I know in my spirit there is much more that will “hook up” to it as I move forward. My hope for now is that Your Holiness can simply begin helping the Roman Catholic Church get prayed up, and that I can hopefully be assigned a contact within Your Holiness' Ministry that provides a conduit from me to Your Holiness without having to go public with everything just to get the Church’s attention, or without having to disturb Your Holiness' own Anointing every time I get something new.

I know that I can’t be in all places and all churches at one time. I am not able to do a lot of travel or speaking engagements or book signings, although I am willing to make myself available for occasional person-to-person visits here in Houston, Texas to discuss various points, if absolutely necessary. Hopefully most questions, comments and concerns can be addressed via email, where nobody can interrupt each other, and a written train of thought can be assembled and referred back to for all to consider as time moves on and the message continues to “gel.”

I am open to correction, and alternate interpretations of the findings I’ve shared herein, and hope to (if nothing else) at least catch any serious doctrinal errors PRIOR to publishing. But in 7 years of study and sharing aspects of this message with other pastors and lay people (both Roman Catholic and Protestant) in online venues, I have yet to come across any that either don’t ignore certain passages of Scripture, or contradict others. Many have proven that it’s easy to simply disagree with the message. None thus far have been able to provide Scripturally sound alternate interpretations. Perhaps Your Holiness can assign your best in-house theologians on this and begin a respectful dialogue between as many parties as are necessary in an online private venue, such as an intranet or private message board, where people can contribute as time permits, and encourage Your Holiness' Ministers to keep these revelations and this new move of God mentioned in their prayers. I don’t really know how God is going to reveal this message to the masses. I only can share how I prefer He does so, and what I am willing to do to make it happen in a way that keeps it (to a large extent) “private Church business” until such time all parties are comfortable with rolling it out to Bishops Councils and eventually the world wide Christian Church.

One can put 1,000 to flight, 2 can put 10,000 to flight….and we NEED thousands of pastors and ministers sharing the message at about the same time, in order to foil Satan’s plot to keep these findings shrouded in misguided fear and homophobia to prevent the fulfillment of Isaiah 55:11-56:12, and prevent the return of Jesus Christ for as long as he can. Overcoming the enemy's plots against these revelations is of utmost importance, and as a partner of Prayer Mountain, I hope Your Holiness shares their mission to "pray in the plans of God, and to thwart the plans of the enemy against them."

This isn’t just another book about how the Church is wrong, or what Scriptures LGBT people can feel free to ignore. No, this is a forensic look at Scripture AS IS, as we allow it to help us all come to a more nuanced and detailed understanding of the insights, ideas and concepts contained therein as pertains to the return of Jesus Christ, and the role LGBT people play in that Great Day. What I have found time and again is that the Church has indeed not been “inaccurate” about many of Her traditional teachings on the subject, but She has been “incomplete,” and has suffered from a lack of specificity (and honestly, from the lack of perspective from serious students of God’s Word, who just happen to be gay as well). As I always tell my LGBT friends:

It’s not about “THE GAY!” It’s about “THE DAY!”

If there is anything I can do to help Your Holiness reach an affirmative decision, or anything I can unite with Your Holiness in prayer over, please feel free to contact me via Twitter @TheBedKeeper, or through email at thebedkeeper@gmail.com. Thank you so much for Your Holiness' time and consideration. I pray the material Your Holiness is about to explore will prove to be a blessing to Your Holiness personally as a member of the Body of Christ, but also as a Ministry to a world full of lost, hurting, and rejected people.  LGBT people have a God ordained place in the Body of Christ. Jesus, God, and the Holy Spirit have all confirmed it is so. But tradition has set the Word of God aside, deprived it of authority, and made the Word of God inoperable…at least until now. 

Then those who feared the Lord talked often one to another; and the Lord listened and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him of those who reverenced and worshipfully feared the Lord and who thought on His name.

And they shall be Mine, says the Lord of hosts, in that day when I publicly recognize and openly declare them to be My jewels (My special possession, My peculiar treasure). And I will spare them, as a man spares his own son who serves him.

Then shall you return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him who serves God and him who does not serve Him. Malachi 3:16-18

The writing of the "Book of Remembrance" has begun, and I just know by the Spirit that Your Holiness and the Roman Catholic Church will be included in it! The only question is when. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make sure it's sooner, rather than later!

God bless you, Your Holiness! I hope to hear from a contact in Your Holiness' Ministry soon!

I have the honor to profess myself with the most profound respect, your Holiness' most obedient and humble Brother, and that of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God loves you! I love you! 

And remember: JESUS IS LORD!

Yours Sincerely,



Brian Anthony Bowen
Author, The Bed Keeper

PS: I encourage Church leaders and ministers to read this manuscript in reverse order, beginning with the last chapter first (Chapter 21). It will provide incentive to continue studying, take readers back through to undo the traditional understandings of the subject, and end up where LGBT people are as defined by Scripture. For LGBT people, I encourage them to read it in the order in which it appears, beginning with our birth, and moving forward to the culmination of the Church Age as Jesus Christ cracks open the sky and catches away the Church!

I'll see you there!

PPS: The easiest way to get started exploring may be to review Frequently Asked Questions which addresses the most common traditional teachings regarding the issue of homosexuality, with convenient links that take you directly to the pertinent chapters of The Bed Keeper for complete and Scripture based responses.
