The Grammys seem to be following the lead of other entertainment industry awards shows that push the envelope of decency in a desperate attempt to draw ratings. Sadly, the Grammys are no longer just about music – and if we care about soul pollution, we better start making better choices about what we allow in our homes.
Christian friends, if we don’t teach our children to believe in and follow Jesus Christ, the world will teach them not to. Hollywood makes no apology for its promotion of the perverse, and they no longer care about offending traditional Americans and mocking Christians.
Some have taken this point a step further, suggesting Hollywood is openly rebelling against God and Christianity.
You might argue that Hollywood awards shows are only giving America’s culture what it wants. I’d tend to agree. If you’re a believer, God has saved us in Christ; but too many believers have conformed to the world rather than be transformed by the renewing of our minds. We cannot protect our minds by filling them with trash.
The Bible teaches that friendship with the world is hatred toward God, and “Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
I’m not suggesting everything was bad; but I did watch Grammy performance clips, read some articles, and can hardly believe this stuff was broadcast during prime time. There is nothing new under the sun. It just seems shocking to those of us who still remember and understand how America began and the fact this once great nation was founded on Judeo-Christian morals and principles.
For obvious reasons, contemporary Christian artist Natalie Grant (nominated for two Grammys) decided not to stay for the whole program. Here’s what she Tweeted that night:
We left the Grammy’s early. I’ve many thoughts, most of which are probably better left inside my head. But I’ll say this: I’ve never been more honored to sing about Jesus and for Jesus. And I’ve never been more sure of the path I’ve chosen.
After getting hammered by certain media and critics the next day, Grant further stated:
I’ve had many people throughout my career ask why I never tried to go in to mainstream music and last night was a beautiful reminder that I love singing about Jesus and FOR Jesus… And I can say that with all sincerity. My last thought: “I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus for it is the power of God who brings salvation to ALL who believe.” Romans 1:16
Do you really think more people will remember the Grammy winners – or the circus side shows?
The Grammys opened with Beyoncé and hubby Jay Z as she gyrated to her song “Drunk in Love”, while some of the explicit lyrics had to be bleeped out. (Here is Good Fight Ministries expose on Beyoncé’s satanic influence)
As advertised in the days leading up to the program, the Grammys featured a “marriage” ceremony boasting 33 couples, gay and straight, while Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed their gospel-tinged, gay-marriage affirming “Same Love.”
