Be Careful What You Listen To!
I read this on Facebook and thought it was powerful and needed to be shared. I didn’t write this, credits given below.
“It’s just a song”
“It’s just a music video”
“It’s just a performance”
“It doesn’t mean anything”
“It’s not that deep”
These are just some of the excuses I’ve heard from lukewarm Christians regarding the celebrities they endorse when they do things like this on national television and call it “art”.
Rather than pray for these individuals we cheer them on? Rather than teach our kids to be careful with what they listen to we sing along with them in the car? One of the top songs being played on repeat in our radio stations is called “Unholy”. Beyonce has a song where she says she uses the Bible to soak up her period blood. Yet we call her Queen? No thanks.
The world is going to be the world. The lost will act like the lost. Those who operate in darkness will radiate darkness. I’m not surprised by this. I am surprised that people who claim to love the Lord support this mess.
It’s not just a song. It’s not just a music video. It’s not just a performance. It does mean something. It is that deep. And if you don’t raise your children in the Word they will be raised in the World. Don’t worry about being politically correct, be biblically correct!
Ephesians 6:12–13 says “For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.”
Don’t make excuses to support darkness because the beat sounds cool and the light effects were on point. Look beyond the talent and see if the symbolism is something you actually want to partner with. Not only that, be proactive against the darkness. As long as there is breath in these people’s lungs they can be redeemed. Pray for their salvation, healing, and deliverance. Satanic imagery is not something to be played with, even if the celebrity isn’t taking it seriously.
This is not a game. Stay prayed up. Be careful what you watch. Be careful what you listen to. Be careful what you tolerate in your home. 🙏
