Jesus told Christians to be set apart from the world. Yet, somehow in modern times, what passes as “Christianity” is virtually indistinguishable from the paganized culture and is often designed that way on purpose.
As we’ve written about numerous times over the years, the contemporary worship scene is essentially a launching pad for worldly-minded wannabe celebrities to make a name for themselves and often eventually abandon Christianity altogether for secular music. Therefore, closely aligning the culture of their music and lifestyle with that of the secular music industry gives them a better chance at making it.
Sadly, many churches have bought into their movements and continue to promote the music of these artists in Sunday morning concerts during something they call “worship service.”
You can find most of these artists intertwined with the secular music industry and this past weekend, most of them were out at the Grammys where a Satanic ritual was performed on stage. In the video below, secular artists Sam Smith and Kim Petra’s performance of “Unholy” was mind-bogglingly disgusting, so bad that even many secular viewers complained about it.
But that didn’t stop contemporary worship artists from hanging around and sharing the stage with this strange fire as groups like Maverick City Music, Kirk Franklin, and Elevation Worship were there for a purpose—to receive their own recognition and have their own moments of fame. They were certainly not there to glorify God.
