God Loves … Even YOU, @AnnCoulter!

Dear Ann,

You are well aware of the many criticisms directed at you in my latest book, Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged. You also know of the praise and encouragement contained within that book.

Permit me to, again, offer you hope!

Your failures, faults, and foibles all derive from your soul-deep self-identities. They, in turn, are your way of coping with the deepest wounds of your past and your deep insecurities – which you hide from others by various means. Your arrogance and hubris mask the emotional turmoil raging within you.

Narcissism is so very unbecoming. So, too, are hardened hearts and closed minds.

Yet, Ann, despite all of your failures and all of your psychological dysfunctions, you remain a very gifted person.

You are clever, though not wise. You have a wealth of knowledge, yet can be an ignorant know-it-all like @AOC. You are an accomplished wordsmith who, all too often, uses your words injudiciously. Often, you have keen insights, yet, you also often go astray due to your obsessive self-identities, those you have created as a raison d’etre and to hide your wounds and brokenness.

Your self-identities, as identified and explained in Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged, have warped your worldview and imprisoned you in a prison of your own making. As a consequence, you have alienated people from across the political spectrum and severed many personal and professional relationships with individuals and organization who were once enthralled by you.

But, take heart, there is hope. You can be restored. Your wounds and brokenness can be healed. Your calloused heart and closed mind can be made whole again.

Will you listen? Will you take heed? Will you allow humility to conquer your hubris?

God loves you. Yes – YOU!

Will you accept His love? Will you allow His love to transform your life? Will you follow His will instead of your own?

Until you do, you are and will remain Dead Ann Walking!

Your REAL Identity

Who are you? If you knew the Bible as well as you know 1984, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and Alien Nation, then you would know who you are.

Throughout Scripture, God tells us over and over again who we are. If we have been redeemed by Christ and Jesus lives in us, then we are beloved children of God.

In John 15:9, Jesus tells His disciples, “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you.”

Ann, accept Jesus’ love and live in His love.

Several videos exquisitely convey the significance of what it means to have one’s identity in Christ. Among them, Our Identity in Christ, Your Identity in Christ, 101 Truths about our identity (position) in Christ, Identity in Christ Scripture Meditation, Identity in Christ, Identity in Christ, How God sees you in Christ, Identity in Christ, and Who Am I (Know Your Identity in Christ).

Therefore, our true identity – both our sense of self and our sense of worth – are found and bound up in Jesus Christ and only Jesus Christ.

Jesus is our only hope for freedom. “So, if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36).

God is infinite. Nothing is impossible with Him. And His love for His children is everlasting. When we forget who He is and who we are, we become lost, bewildered, and alone. But when we remember that we are the beloved children of an infinite God, everything changes.

If you are in Christ, never forget who you are and that your identity is found in Him.

If you are not in Christ, go to Him, repent, seek forgiveness and transformation, and rest in Him!

Author and evangelist Timothy Keller exhorts Christians “to live as the adopted sons and daughters of God secure in the abiding and abundant love of their heavenly Father (Rom. 8:15-17; 31-39).”[1]

Countless worship songs express God’s infinite love and unfathomable grace for His people. Among them are Casting Crowns’ Only Jesus, Lauren Daigle’s You Say, Sidewalk Prophets’ Come to the Table, Hawk Nelson’s Drops in the Ocean, Francesca Battistelli’s He Knows My Name, Melody Noel’s Mistakes, Matthew West’s Mended, and MercyMe’s Flawless.[2]

Let There Be Light in your life, flowing from God, through you, to others!

The more we limit God by putting Him in a box, the more limitations we place on ourselves. The more we have a diminished view of God, the more we place Him, ourselves, and others in ever-smaller boxes. But with an exalted view of God, we have a liberating view of Him, ourselves, and others.

With a limitless God, not the sky, but heaven itself is the only limit to our dreams.

Take heart, Ann! The best is yet to come – if you will see yourself and the world through God’s eyes and embrace His unfathomably deep, boundless, and everlasting love for you.

Please reread Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged with an intent to (re)establish a relationship with our Father in heaven, who deeply loves you and desires the best for you in this life and the next.

Joker: Ann Coulter Unplugged provides an in-depth, detailed analysis in this holistic exposé of how and why Coulter has become the person she is today.

Joker addresses the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, familial, sexual, and spiritual dimensions which have shaped the Ann Coulter that we know today and it highlights both the positives and the negatives of Coulter’s life and career.

[2]           A colleague of Ann’s once asked me, “She doesn’t care about you. Why do you care about her?” Let me answer that question this way: Every human being has been rebellious to God. Everyone has sinned against Him and let Him down. Nevertheless, He still loves us with an unfailing love. If I – as a fallen human being who has seen the dark side of Ann up close and personal – if I can care for her, how much more does our Father in heaven, filled with everlasting love, love her with a perfect love?
