Most of you have probably heard by now about Beyonce’s latest release “Bow Down B------”. People (including some christians) have begun to express how shocked they are at Beyonce’s choice of words in this song. My question is “Why?” This has been a long time coming and it’s only going to get worse from here. Beyonce is captivating and has proven her ability to place a demonic hold on the spiritually weak through her music, looks and seductive antics.
Beyonce fans are saying “It ain’t that serious. It’s just a song.” Let me remind you, satan is wickedly clever. He knows not to show his true colors at first. He presented the world with a beautiful, talented and seemingly humble young woman who appears to be living the dream life. He lured you in with her cunning charm and after he wrapped you into his web of deceit, he showed his true self. Also, for those you who don’t know, Jay Z has adopted the teachings of Aleister Crowley, an atheist who created his own ten commandments; one of them being “do what thou wilt”. (Look at Jay Z's shirt)
Furthermore, I am sick and tired of the world deeming Christians as being judgmental. I am even more frustrated with “yellow back so called Christians” who will fall for anything just because it looks or feels good. I am reading the blogs and listening to excuses given from people who are trying to justify the lyrics in Beyoncé's song.
First let me say, God has no sense of humor when it comes to his word. He specifically commands us in his Ten Commandments not to bow down or serve any other gods or graven image (Exodus 20:5). So there you go, I don’t have to write anything else on that one.
Secondly, there is no justification for calling anyone outside of their birth given name. Nikki Woods, Senior Producer for the Tom Joyner Morning Show, recently blogged about the issue and included insight she received from a sixteen year old Beyonce fan. When Nikki asked the sixteen year old if she was surprised at Beyonce’s choice of words, the young lady replied “Kind of. Especially since she’s a mom and because Jay-Z said he wasn’t going to use the B-word anymore. But I think when women call other women the B-word it’s different than when a man does. It just another word for ‘girls.’ This was heartbreaking for me to read. Our young ladies have become used to being called female dogs and actually think of it as a term of endearment. Proverbs 22: 1 says "A good name is rather to be chosen than riches and loving favour than silver and gold."
Is the standard we are setting for our young women? Are we willing to sit back and allow the media to taint the minds of our youth for their own financial gain? Beyonce, a positive influence? I’ve never consider her to be a positive influence. Her business and career has always been music and entertainment not empowering women and youth. For most celebrities (I said most not all), charity work is all a part of establishing a good image that will help increase record sales. Don’t believe me? The lyrics from this song alone should tell you that Beyonce is all about making that paper first and being a good influence second (if at all).
People if we don't stand for something we will fall for anything!
