I would like to share with you the dangers of the Lyrics in Songs that you have probably heard over the years or are still hearing today and new Songs too that also propagate evil but I will mainly be looking at the foundation that I had in my younger years that has encouraged what we hear that is wrong today being accepted even by Christians. Opera was something I enjoyed and still do but some of it’s Lyrics are also evil and so are not acceptable just because it is Opera does not make them so.
We need to be aware that what we hear, read or see is stored in our Subconscious Mind and if it’s not good it can be instrumental in causing many problems, this is why God tells us to focus on what is good not evil, as the Scripture below confirms.
Philippians 4:6-8 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. K.J.V
Before I share with you some examples of the evil in Song Lyrics, I would like us to confirm in our hearts again through Scripture what God’s will is for us in regards to all Music and to understand that He inspires His worship in Songs but to also be warned that so does Satan with his evil intentions.
Ephesians 5:18-20 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;(KJV)
Colossians 3: 16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving Thanks to God and the Father by Him.
Psalm 95:1-3 O come, let us sing unto the LORD let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with Psalms. For The LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.(KJV)
Psalm 98:4-5 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.(KJV)
Psalm 100:1-3 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before His presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.(KJV)
Many of you who knew the Beatles will remember this Song below no doubt it was in and out of many Cassette players and it is still being listened to today but it’s message is saying although sugar-coated, if we reject Heaven, meaning God and Hell too, meaning Satan, as a reality and just live for today, than we are doing something commendable for the World, this is just Atheists propaganda.
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace.
1 Thessalonians 5:2-4 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.(KJV)
The Song below would indeed encourage us to look forward to a Special night of entertainment at a Disco or Party, Wow I think I would be planning a early night instead.
Somebody’s gonna hurt someone
before the night is through
Somebody’s gonna come undone
There’s nothin’ we can do
Everybody wants to touch somebody
If it takes all night
Everybody wants to take a little chance
Make it come out night.
There’s gonna be a heartache tonight
A heartache tonight, I know
There’s gonna be a heartache tonight
A heartache tonight, I know
Lord, I know.
Now for some Karaoke, I have just listed a few verses to condense but you can Google it yourself or you may already know it but believe me it is best deleted.
Released 31st October, 1975 – Spent 17 weeks on chart (9 at number 1). Went Platinum. First song ever to take advantage of a promotional video. Re-released 9th December, 1991. Entered charts at number 1.
“Bismillah” which is mentioned a few times in the rest of the song, as are the others below is the opening word in the Qu’ran (Koran) and literally means “In the name of Allah.”
“Scaramouch” according to the dictionary means “a stock character who appears as a boastful coward.”
“Beelzebub” is one of the many names given to “The Devil.”
Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I’m easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn’t really matter to me, to me
Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away
Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters
Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body’s aching all the time
Goodbye everybody – I’ve got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo – (anyway the wind blows)
I don’t want to die
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all
God tells us not to accept or call good what He calls evil and He tells us that Satan is the father of lies, the Link below also shares a Song that propagated evil too and is listened to by Children as young as 8 years old today but sadly there are many more.
The Lyrics are very evil in this Song, see verse below, rest of verses on link – https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/rubbish-in-rubbish-out/
I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to f***ing leave again
Im’a tie her to the bed and set this house on fire
I’m just gonna
This is Ron’s Comment on this Song…..
Yes its true some of the rubbish that`s portrayed as Music, is really worrying, years ago songs didn’t feature such sadism and hate and cruelty . They are devoid of all normal senses of relationships and interaction and fine feelings of respect and understanding of one another. It`s sad to see some of our fine young people, subjecting themselves to this mind numbing apology for Music!
On the link below I shared the errors that sometimes result with Christian songs when others change the original lyrics.
Ron gave a good warning also about this in his comment on the link below.
Causing error in Lyrics- https://freedomborn.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/are-we-singing-in-unity-or-in-error/
I could not share with you the Evil words of the songs from the website called Rapper’s lyrics to hit songs, most were too evil – if wanted you can Google it and if not showing, than search for; chance the rapper favourite song, it is defiantly not a Joyful noise!
Colossians 3: 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving Thanks to God and the Father by Him
Thanks for sharing the dangers of Worldly Carnal Music it’s not just about our youth, we are in danger too.
