Lady Gaga’s ‘Judas’ song

I’m often excoriated when I post tweets or blog entries stating homosexuality is a sin, or about how the mass media of tv, movies and books are brainwashing the culture into accepting demonic attitudes. (“It’s just entertainment! Don’t you have anything better to do??”) Other posts and tweets do not incite such reactions, and that is how I know how deeply satan has penetrated the mass media culture and the homosexual agenda. I know because he writhes when light is shone on his lies! Friends, keep firm on saying that the mass media culture is a reflection of satan’s lies! And do not participate in it yourself. If you do not believe me, see just how overt and obvious satan is getting-

Judas is the demon I cling to
“I’m just a holy fool,/ oh baby he’s so cruel,/ but I’m still in love with Judas, baby.” Lady Gaga.
“You can’t say Lady Gaga isn’t provocative. ‘Judas,’ the latest single from Grammy-winner and fashion icon has leaked onto the internet early, adding to the already heated debate about the song, and accompanying video’s, alleged sacrilege. The song and video are told from Mary Magdalene’s perspective, with lyrics such as, “When he comes to me, I am ready/ I’ll wash his feet with my hair if he needs/ Forgive him when his tongue lies through his brain/ Even after three times, he betrays me/ I’ll bring him down, a king with no crown…” Religious groups are fuming but reviews are generally positive: Spin Magazine critiques the track by saying that, “True to form, Gaga delivers a rowdy, industrial-disco banger, and her performance is insanely over the top,” adding that “there’s no denying the primal energy of ‘Judas.’”

Never mind the critical reaction to Gaga’s Judas song. Here is the popular reaction as reported by Billboard:

“Her song Judas, which was leaked on Friday, could very possibly debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart next week. This would move Rihanna’s No. 1 hit, S&M, from the top spot, which had a recent bump due to her recently-released remix of the song, featuring Britney Spears.  Even though Judas was slated to debut next week, it was rush-released on iTunes on Friday after being leaked. And now, it just very well may find itself at the No.1 spot, selling close to 400,000 units with less than two-and-a-half days of sales in the week.”

Incidentally, 23-year-old Rihanna’s current No. 1 hit, S&M is about sadism and masochism, and she sings about how chains and whips excite her. About how good it feels to be bad. And satan is right, it feel good to be bad, temporarily. He never tells you that part- that it is temporary. But the Spirit tells us, in Hebrews 11:25, in describing Moses’ choice to suffer affliction for God than to experience “the pleasures of sin for a season.” And that season is short.

Other songs on the top 10 billboard son lists include Britney Spears No. 1 song Femme Fatale,
“I’ll be your blonde tonight If that is what you like Stilettos and fishnets If that’s what you like I’ll be your hot mess School girl in curls Whatever your type Baby if that’s what you like I’ll do it”.

Katy Perry’s No. 2 song E.T , is  about intercourse with aliens. “They say be afraid You’re not like the others, Futuristic lover, Different DNA, They don’t understand you. You’re from a whole other world, A different dimension, You open my eyes, And I’m ready to go, Lead me into the light. Could you be an angel? Could you be a devil? [Chorus] Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me. Infect me with your love and, Fill me with your poison.”

Gee. Doesn’t the lyric of  ‘different DNA’ remind you of Genesis 6:1-2; 4, “Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose. … There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them.”

And those are a snippet of only the top three songs on Billboard’s charts! Demonic lyrics, promoting satan’s agenda. And no, I can’t lighten up and no, I can’t ever stop saying that purity in Jesus Word is the ONLY good thing. Why should I not proclaim purity of word and thought thanks to the Spirit’s deliverance of His word to us? Why should I not strive to seek good words and to have only good thoughts remain in my head? Why shouldn’t I refuse to engage in or indulge in filth even when it is rampant in the culture? I won’t.

Job said that he had made a covenant with his eyes and would not look upon a maid. (Job 31:1). Paul said, “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.” ( 1 Corinthians 6:18). In teaching about the carnality of this world, Paul wrote in Colossians 3:2, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” He commanded them to “put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” (Col 3:4). We are to set ourselves apart from the carnality of this world.

In case you think that it is nearly impossible to resist fallen culture today since carnality is all around us, we are not special. Early Christian Rome was in the same state of debauchery that we are immersed in now, with orgies, homosexuality, and licentiousness in song, poetry, and drama. The Colosseum was free to all to be entertained by bestiality, murder, and death. The pagans were used to frivolity in all forms from the numerous festivals, such as Saturnalia, a week-long festival in December. Seneca the Younger wrote, “the greatest part of the city is in a bustle. Loose reins are given to public dissipation…”

Yes, the songs are ‘only entertainment’, but when these themes are repeated endlessly and ceaselessly, hammering into our youth’s brains, sung over and over, they penetrate. Do our youth memorize scripture verses as well as they easily remember lyrics like ‘fill me with your poison?” No. And there’s a reason for that.
