“When can music be considered ‘Christian music’?”
– The song lyrics must reflect biblical truth.
– The song lyrics must directly praise God/Jesus.
– The song must mention God/Jesus.
– The song must be written for Christians and not as an evangelical tool.
– The lyrics must directly address God, not other people.
– The song must be completely new, not a cover of a secular song.
– The song is designed to be played in church, not outside of the church.
– The melody must be paramount, and the rhythm subdued.
– The song must be written and performed by mature Christians only.
– The men who sing the song must have short hair, and the women must have long hair.
There are several aspects of a song that may influence its categorization as “Christian music,” but these qualifiers suggest almost as many problems as solutions. And many of them focus on everything except the message of the song.
Christian Music – The Writers/Performers
Many consider a song to be “Christian” only if it is performed by an artist in the Christian music industry and played on Christian radio stations. However, if the lyrics of a song written and performed by Christians for a Christian audience misinterpret Scripture, can it still be considered “Christian music”? Can a slightly modified cover of a secular song by a Christian artist for a Christian audience be considered “Christian music”? Kansas’s “Carry on Wayward Son” performed by Rachel Rachel and Matt Brouwer’s cover of Sheryl Crow’s “I Shall Believe” come to mind. Or what about songs written and performed by someone once billed as a Christian artist who now lives an unbiblical lifestyle? If the lyrics speak spiritual truth, does the origin of the song matter?
“Is Hillsong a biblically solid church?”
Answer: Hillsong Church was founded in 1983 in Sydney, Australia, by senior pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston. Hillsong is probably best known for their praise and worship music, having recorded dozens of popular songs since 1992, including the church favorite “Shout to the Lord.” Besides being Australia’s largest church, Hillsong has locations around the world, including campuses in Kiev, London, New York, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Moscow, São Paulo, and other cities. Hillsong Church is part of the Assemblies of God of Australia (now called the Australian Christian Churches). Is Hillsong Church a biblical church? Their stated beliefs on their official website include the basic doctrines of the triune God, salvation by grace through faith in Christ, and the reality of heaven and hell. There are a couple of concerns, however. One statement on their “What We Believe” page is curiously lacking: “We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread.’” This statement alludes to Acts 2:42, which says the early church “devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” What’s missing in the Hillsong statement is “the apostles’ teaching.” Why is this omitted?
A more obvious concern is Hillsong’s ordination of women as pastors, in contradiction of Scripture’s teaching that men are to be the spiritual leaders of the church (1 Timothy 2:11–12). Bobbie Houston, co-pastor of Hillsong Sydney, told The Christian Post in an October 16, 2014, interview that, when it comes to women in leadership, “the church needs to come of age sometimes and just grow up.”
Probably most troubling is Hillsong’s embrace of the Word of Faith movement. From the Hillsong website: “We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and blessed lives in order to help others more effectively.” Going along with the teaching that God always wills to heal and that “blessed” equals “healthy” is the prosperity gospel, which adds that God wills to enrich us financially. In Pastor Brian Houston’s 1999 book You Need More Money, he promotes the prosperity gospel: “We have to become comfortable with wealth, and break the bondage, guilt, and condemnation of impoverished thinking. Poverty is definitely not God’s will for His people. In fact, all His promises talk of blessing and prosperity” (page 8). Houston insists that he only promotes seeking wealth for unselfish purposes—such as investing in ministry—but it is hard to reconcile the idea that “poverty is definitely not God’s will” with Paul’s teaching to be “content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want” (Philippians 4:12, emphasis added).
The Hillsong Church has been criticized recently for its leaders’ reticence to take a position on homosexuality. Hillsong New York Pastor Carl Lentz, in a televised interview with Katie Couric, declined to comment on gay marriage: “Often people want you to make these big statements about things [e.g., gay marriage] and I don’t believe it’s fair. I don’t think a public forum is always the best place to talk about something that’s so sensitive and important to so many because in a public forum there’s no discussion there.” The fact that any issue is “sensitive” or “important” should not prevent a pastor from clearly communicating God’s Word in a public forum. Can we only answer direct questions about morality privately or when we can “discuss” the matter?
As with many ministries, there are positive and negative facets of Hillsong. Are there people being saved through the Hillsong Church? Yes, and we praise God for that. Can a Christian worship the Lord with Hillsong-produced music? Absolutely. Can a person be carried away by emotion and misled into the false idea that God always wants us to be healthy and rich? Unfortunately, yes. “Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:20–21).
The worship of God involves our whole being and every act we perform. In this article, worship is used to refer to singing in a corporate worship service.
There is nothing more important than sound teaching in a church. Too many churchgoers, however, the type of music used in the service is often a high priority. Church leaders sometimes struggle with the task of choosing music that both appeals to the congregation and teaches sound doctrine. More and more often, complicating the issue, church leaders must decide whether to use songs that are finely crafted and theologically sound but come from a church or writer who holds unbiblical views.
Many believers strongly believe that songs, even those with doctrinally sound lyrics, should not be used if the writer, composer, or parent ministry has unbiblical teachings. Those with such convictions should follow their conscience. If they feel the need to talk to the church leadership about the issue, they should do so in a spirit of gentleness and humility and seek answers with the goal of peacefully settling the matter. If the answer they receive from the decision-makers is not acceptable to them, they may quietly submit to the outcome or quietly leave the church.
Ephesians 5:19 says that, when we are filled with the Spirit, we will be “speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.” Music is thus an important means of communication in the church. It should go without saying that any song whose lyrics contain false teaching should be rejected. The Spirit will not communicate falsehood. Beyond the doctrinal test, there are several possible complications in considering a song to use in worship:
The songwriter has unbiblical beliefs. Horatio Spafford, the writer of “It Is Well with my Soul,” didn’t believe in eternal hell or Satan. Francis of Assisi, who wrote “All Creatures of Our God and King,” was Roman Catholic. Matthew Bridges, author of “Crown Him with Many Crowns,” converted to Roman Catholicism. Does this mean we must remove those songs from our hymnals? If the lyrics of the song are biblical, does the theological background of the writer matter?
More recent controversies don’t usually involve hymns. There are several churches and music groups today who release powerful, even theologically sound worship songs but are known for promoting bad theology in their services and concerts. If the bad theology is not actually expressed in the lyrics of their songs, can we use those songs for our worship services?
The songwriter has fallen into sin. What do we do with worship songs written by someone who comes out as a homosexual or who commits adultery and gets divorced? The sin of the composer does not change the quality of the song, but it might change the suitability of the song for use in a church service—depending on the associations the song creates in the minds of a congregation.
The lyrics, properly understood, have an unbiblical interpretation. For example, some popular modern songs speak of the Holy Spirit “raining down.” Many Christians assume this is a metaphor, speaking of the nurturing and cleansing blessings the Holy Spirit gives in our day-to-day lives. Singers may not realize the songwriter intended something more literal: a fresh visitation of the Spirit who will bring new prophecies and signs and wonders. Which matters more: what the songwriter intended or what the singers intend?
Using the song will support an organization teaching bad doctrine. One of the biggest arguments lately is that using a song produced by doctrinally flawed groups will support those churches or music groups and thus help spread their unbiblical beliefs. A popular song could draw people to investigate the church that originally produced it and introduce them to false teaching. In addition, the producing church or music group gets money whenever their songs are downloaded or performed and whenever their lyrics are publicly displayed. The concern becomes less about the song and more about boycotting an organization that doesn’t adhere to orthodox beliefs.
Worship must be done in spirit and in truth. It helps to go back to Jesus’ command that we worship “in spirit and truth” (John 4:23). To worship “in spirit” means that we worship sincerely, with our whole heart. We can’t do this if the song reminds us of the unbiblical theology of the church or songwriter who produced the song.
Also, our worship should be “in truth,” that is, based on a true biblical knowledge of God. Every element of our worship should be theologically sound. If a song’s lyrics reflect questionable or unclear theology, it’s foolishness to use those words to worship God; if we wouldn’t stand in front of the congregation and say it, we shouldn’t sing it.
Regarding the choice of songs for worship, as in all things related to the ministry of a church, we should act in wisdom, grace, and humility. We need wisdom in choosing the best songs for our specific congregation and in determining the importance of secondary considerations such as the identity and character of the songwriters and composers. We need the grace to avoid becoming judgmental and to help distinguish between personal preference and vital doctrinal matters. We need humility to live according to our convictions and at the same time live in peace with our fellow believers.
Religious CCM singers are preparing apostate churches to follow him!
There is a startling abundance of occult imagery on Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) album covers, promotional items, and websites; so much in fact that it cannot be ignored. The same is true of ecumenical pastors and religious authors. Ecumenism is defined as: trying to unite religious people by doctrinal error; rather than dividing over Biblical truth as God commands (2nd Corinthians 2:14-17; Romans 16:17; Titus 1:13). If the Antichrist is to succeed at rounding up the apostates, he must get everyone on the same page, thinking with the same mindset; hence, welcome to the Devil’s Ecumenical Movement.
The Illuminati love to hide things in plain sight. As the saying goes, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.” Symbolism and occult imagery are subconsciously perceived, but on a conscious level will not be seen. This type of subliminal messaging is very common in music videos and demonic Hollywood films (such as the movie, Event Horizon starring Sam Neill), where grotesque images of brutal torture and sexual orgies are flashed for only a brief second throughout the film. Although the conscious mind didn’t see the images long enough to understand exactly what was seen, your subconscious mind recorded and understood EVERYTHING. Special satanic producers are regularly brought in to handle this sole aspect of a larger-scale movie produced by someone else. These special producers are experts at injecting spiritual poison into the human mind and are the sinister Luciferians working behind the scenes putting backward masking into music today (such as The Jonas Brothers). Truth is stranger than fiction, but you have to care enough to see the truth. The truth has always been right in front of us.
The following so-called “Christian” singers and bands are OF THE DEVIL. They have sold their souls for worldly fame, fortune and success. When Satan came to tempt the Lord in Matthew 4:9, he offered Jesus everything that this sinful world has to offer in exchange for worship. Jesus quoted the Bible and Satan was defeated. They all use corrupt Bibles, avoid the offensive Gospel that condemns Catholics and other works-based false religions to Hellfire, and promote ecumenical unity over Biblical separation and doctrinal soundness.
Today, instead, people are selling their souls left and right to take Satan up on his deal. This is why America has become such a decadent, worm-infested, rat-hole, society of wickedness! Here are the occult album covers of some so-called “Christian” performers. These are just a few, but there are countless more if you pay attention to them. The New World Order is rising up all around us. This is one more reason why I believe that the Rapture is near, which must precede the coming of the Antichrist according to 2nd Thessalonians 2:3.
The religious band SKILLET, and their album AWAKE…
The religious singer CHARMAINE, and her album LOVE REALITY…
Charmaine’s worldly garbage is praised by the false Christian website, JESUS FREAK HIDEOUT, in which they comment about the album, LOVE REALITY…
All About Jesus, pop singer Charmaine returns to music after eight years … It’s hard to really compare Charmaine’s sound to anyone else in the Christian market … Love Reality is lyrically Christ-centered and full of optimism … It’s worlds beyond the now-dated All About Jesus … Love Reality will not only be this year’s best pop album, but also one of the best albums of the year overall. Don’t miss out on one of 2010’s biggest surprises yet.
TOBYMAC and his latest album (released on August 28, 2012) EYE ON IT…
I’ve been exposing TobyMac as a Christian fraud for many years. The album cover to the left is Toby’s new and latest album which just came out on August 28, 2012. Look at the All-Seeing Eye. This latest album further evidences who Toby McKeehan serves, that is, Satan!
Sadly, most young people today don’t care. They are knowingly following the New World Order, selling their souls to the Devil. You can hear a short clip of Toby’s new album and song, EYE ON IT at Amazon. Please read, New World Order Occult Images In CCM Music! You either want to know THE TRUTH or you don’t. It is obvious that Satan is behind the music industry (and that certainly includes CCM). Toby McKeehan (born 1964) is now 47 years old in 2012.
The Bible teaches in 2nd Thessalonians 2:10 that the masses of this world will openly receive the Antichrist when he comes, being taken “with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.”
The vaguely religious group ONE REPUBLIC, and their album WAKING UP…
The following album cover is from the religious Rock band, THIRD DAY. The album is titled REVELATION. Notice the Masonic pyramid and how a cross is used to form its capstone.
The fake Christian singer DEREK WEBB, and his New Age album STOCKHOLM SYNDROME…
Named “America’s pastor” in 2005 by Christianity Today, MAX LUCADO produced his New World Order FEARLESS in 2009. Notice the pyramid and the capstone (far left). Occultists like to hide their symbols in plain view to mock the stupidity of the public who are not enlightened. Occultists are arrogant, evil and haters of God. I’m not saying that Max Lucado is an occultist, nor a hater of God; but he is definitely a servant of the New World Order, promoting interdenominational unity (which means true Christians are being asked to unite with unsaved Catholics and other unbelievers in apostasy).
The Great Pyramid is an occult symbol showing one’s allegiance to the NWO. Satan is everywhere today!
Here’s 7 Max Lucado books with hidden Masonic Pyramids. The occult loves to hide symbols in plain view. The pyramid, I think, represents the unfinished tower and city of Babel.
Satan wants to finish what he started thousands of years ago, uniting mankind against God in Luciferian worship. Just as Nebuchadnezzar used an image (Daniel 3:5-7), and demanded worship at the sound of the music, so will the Antichrist do the same (Revelation 13:15). It is uncanny that we are seeing IMAGES all over the place today, in our faces, but hidden. There is no denying the use of the Illuminati pyramid, and here is an occult book which evidences this fact…
Below left: A photo taken from the main website of the International Churches of Christ (ICOC). Below right: The back of a U.S. one-dollar bill showing the Masonic pyramid.
Above left: Ozzy Osbourne; above right: The Back Street Boys (although these are secular Rock idols, you can see that CCM and secular groups alike show allegiance to The Beast system (i.e., the New World Order and the coming Antichrist who will be its leader), by incorporating The Great Pyramid onto their album covers. Notice how Ozzy’s arms and head subtly form a pyramid. Max Lucado subtly does the same thing on Fearless pictured below.
In the preceding picture, do you see how Max Lucado subtly and cleverly uses a pier and a person in snorkeling flaps to form a pyramid? Also note that the person forms the capstone of the pyramid, and they are detached, exactly like the detached pyramid and capstone (top stone) on back of every U.S. one-dollar bill.
The significance of this occult (hidden) symbolism is the same as the earring in the right ear fad that homosexuals began in the 1980s in Florida. It spread nationwide quickly. Without saying a word, a man is considered a homosexual just by wearing an earring in his right ear.
Likewise, if you want to impress the movers and shakers that have the power to make you successful in this wicked world, the best way to move up the Devil’s food chain is to promote The All-Seeing-Eye and The Great Pyramid, but subtly in everything you do. The most successful worldly people are the ones who most subtly promote Satan, because that is the Devil’s goal in this evil world, i.e., to deceive people without them knowing it!
Satan doesn’t need any more idiots who openly worship Satan; the Devil needs people who appear as Christians and can win the hearts and minds of the masses, while simultaneously injecting them with spiritual poison and leading them into Luciferianism. If you can do that, my friend, then Satan will make you rich and famous very quickly.
Following are some internationally recognized symbols representing different religious faiths. You will notice many of these symbols used in much of today’s music, movies, art, and advertising worldwide. Satan’s goal is to break down all denominational, geographical, economic, educational, racial and religious barriers to united men once again in rebellion against the God of the Bible.
The Tower of Babel is being rebuilt. Don’t believe it? The Tower of Babel is being rebuilt, except this time Satan is confounding men, by changing all of the Bibles, hindering men from finding the knowledge of God.
One of the most worldly entertainers in the CCM world is Crystal Lewis, whose music is characterized by sensuality, boisterous bellowing, and nightclub-style performances. She’s as phony as a three dollar bill. Here’s Miss Lewis’ popular video titled “LORD I BELIEVE IN YOU,” which one of her fans used 192 images to make. The video ought to be renamed to, “ALL ABOUT CRYSTAL LEWIS!!!” The CCM crowd are some of the biggest hypocrites on the planet! They don’t go soul-winning, hate hard-preaching, worship the CCM singers, won’t tolerate sound doctrine nor preaching against sin. All their women wear pants (which is men’s clothing, no matter what feminists want to call them). And all of the leaders of the CCM industry are greedy millionaires!!!
Here’s the Satanic cover below of Lewis’ 1998 album titled “GOLD,” with the hit song, LORD I BELIEVE IN YOU, featuring the Illuminati All-Seeing Eye. The eye signifies that Miss Lewis and the CCM industry work for the Illuminati, leading America’s churches into apostasy. It’s difficult for most people to grasp that seemingly Christian music (which superficially praises the Lord) could be Satanic, but along with the shallow music comes the endorsement of false religious teachers, otherworldly entertainers, counterfeit modern Bible versions, and all the spiritual apostasy infecting the U.S. today. …
ABOVE: Illuminati pawn Crystal Lewis. The All-Seeing-Eye is commonly used by Hollywood (and the music industry to familiarize the public with occult symbology. To understand why the Illuminati are flooding the world with these occult symbols, please read my article titled, Exposing Alice Bailey’s ‘The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy.’ The world is being prepared to receive the coming man of sin, The Antichrist!
In the Garden of Eden we see Satan using one of his favorite methods of deception—the HALF-TRUTH! Although it was true that the eyes of Eve would be opened if she ate the forbidden fruit, it was a lie that Eve wouldn’t die when she ate the fruit. Adam and Eve died spiritually the very second they ate the forbidden fruit. Hence, Satan knows that the best place to hide a lie is between two truths, because people see the truthful part of the deception and are taken-in by it, damned by the lie they couldn’t see. This is what I am trying to warn you about in the CCM industry! They are not what they appear to be. Satan controls the world today!!!
Please understand, I realize that most of the people who listen to CCM are sincere. They’re real people with the same burdens, heartaches and problems that we all have in life. The music helps them get through the day, but it inoculates them from the Word of God. CCM, corrupt Bible versions, the heresy of Lordship Salvation, and the apostasy in today’s churches give people a SUBSTITUTE for what they really need, which is the preaching of the Word of God. People hate preaching, but that’s what they need the most! I mean hell, fire and damnation preaching in love. I mean ripping, scathing, offending, and telling people the truth like it is. Hell is a real place, with unbearable eternal fire. Eternal judgment is coming! Our churches have become infatuated with music, crying and getting all emotional, seeking spiritual experiences; but they need THE HARSH AND UNDILUTED PREACHING OF THE WORD OF GOD!!!
Satan is the god of this world (2nd Corinthians 4:4). Satan controls the world through the influence of demon-possessed Luciferian worshippers such as: Madame Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, Albert Pike, Benjamin Creme, and Aleister Crowley. Lucis Trustpropagates the work of an “Ascended Master” (i.e., a demon possessed man) who was working “through” Alice Bailey for 30 years. Just as Christians look to the Bible for spiritual guidance, so do occultists look to the writings of Luciferians such as Alice Bailey for spiritual (demonic) guidance. It’s the Word of God verses the Devil. Don’t you understand my friend, everyone is somebody’s slave. If you don’t want a good God to rule over you, then you will be enslaved to a cruel Devil.
Notice the above photo with a pyramid and the capstone cleverly incorporated into the scene. Emma Mory is not a Christian entertainer, but she is nonetheless in the music INDUSTRY. The mainstream music industries, whether it be Rock, Rap, Country, Blues or even CCM (Contemporary Christian Music); Satan is behind them all and you’ll find occult symbols saturating all their albums, concerts, hand gestures, clothing, et cetera, all showing their allegiance to the Devil’s forming New World Order. It’s their way of saying, I’ve sold my soul to Rock ‘N’ Roll, or CCM, or whatever. Check out all these business logos and their allegiance to Satan. Satan is in control of this evil world.
Do you want to know something very deep and interesting? Think about this. When the Jews were in bondage in Egypt, God sent Moses, who performed 10-plagues upon the Egyptians unto Pharaoh finally let God’s people go. The 10th plague was the most dreadful, claiming the firstborn life of every child and animal in the homes that did not have a lamb’s blood applied to the doorposts of the home (Exodus 12:13). That blood pictures the coming Savior, Messiah, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God Who taketh away the sin of the world.
Now, 3500 years later, we see the Devil telling his servants to put their signs upon the doorposts of their homes, Egyptian signs (pyramids and the all-seeing eye of Horus from Egypt), upon their homes, businesses, their album covers, their logos, even on their false Bibles, and Satan will reward them for their support. Thus, we see society today saturated with occult pyramids and the all-seeing eye, and other occult symbols and images. It’s a mockery of the Word of God. Everything that Satan does is a mockery of God. The Ram or goat is a mockery of the precious Lamb of God. The Church of Satan is a mockery of the New Testament Church. False religions are a mockery of true Christianity.
That is amazing! God told the Israelites in EGYPT to mark their homes with the blood of Christ to be spared death, and now 3500-years later Satan is telling everyone to mark their works and businesses with EGYPTIAN occult symbols to stay alive and thrive in Satan’s global economy and New World Order.
Something else that is amazing, is how the Tower of Babel seems to relate to what’s going on in the world today.

The Ecumenical Movement is a Vehicle Going Toward a One World Religion
In the year 2,000, the United Nations [UN], which was created and is controlled by the Council On Foreign Relations [CFR], was highly involved in bringing to fruition a One World Religion (as part of a New World Order) which is the Beast system of the coming Antichrist . . .
UN plans to bring together 1000 world religious leaders
By Larry Witham, THE WASHINGTON TIMES, July 14, 2000
A global summit bringing 1,000 religious leaders to the United Nations will disclose some participants next week, good news to U.N. officials eager to plan security and protocol for the unprecedented Aug. 28-29 event. The “working list” to be issued Tuesday will not include personages such as Pope John Paul II and probably not the Dalai Lama, who reports no invitation. But the Vatican’s Cardinal Francis Arinze, a Nigerian, will make the trek to New York City as will spiritual leaders from countries such as Peru who have never before left their native soils.
The truth is stranger than fiction!
I tell people, if I weren’t a Christian for any other reason, I’d become a Christian just because of how obvious it is that Satan controls this world. World leader blatantly worship the Beast. Washington D.C. is saturated with occult symbols. Lucifer Trust(now Lucis Trust) publishes everything for the UN. Their address was originally at 666 United Nations Plaza in New York City. How bizarre does it go?
Satan has infiltrated the church through Freemasonry. Alice Bailey, a leading spokesperson of the occultic Theosophical Society and member of Co-Masonry confirmed the occultic and Luciferian nature of Freemasonry, stated…
“The Masonic Movement is the custodian of the Law, the holder of the Mysteries, and the seat of initiation… a far more occult organization than can be realized… intended to be the training school for coming advanced occultists.”
SOURCE: “President Clinton Will Continue The New World Order”; Dennis L. Cuddy, RESEARCH MANUAL: AMERICA 2000/GOALS 2000, MOVING THE NATION EDUCATIONALLY TO A “NEW WORLD ORDER” Editor: James R. Patrick Citizens for Academic Excellence, 1994, 28-48.
It is tragic that many professed “Christians” fail to recognize the occult nature of Freemasonry; while the occultists themselves, who blaspheme the name of Jesus Christ, openly admit the diabolical nature of Freemasonry.
Lest you fail to realize the detrimental impact of demonic Freemasonry on our churches today, most of the Freemasonry membership in the U.S. are Southern Baptists. Shame! Shame! Shame! 2nd Corinthians 6:14-17 forbids Christians from yoking together in bonds with unbelievers; which includes marriage, business partners and occult brotherhoods. John 12:43, “For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” Revelation 3:15-16 says that God wants us in or out, on or off, hot or cold; but God will vomit us out of his mouth if we’re lukewarm. Hospitals use lukewarm water to induce vomiting. And lukewarm believers make God want to go puke. God wants us to be red hot.
What is the Spiritual Significance of the Occult Eye and The Great Pyramid?
Symbols are used throughout the occult. Harpers’ Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience (p.594) says,
“Symbols are important to all esoteric teachings, for they contain secret wisdom accessible only to the initiated.”
Here is a business card I was given some time ago from a non-denominational apostate religious bookstore. They sell books and videos produced by Seventh-Day Adventists, as well as Catholic Bibles and all the wicked televangelists who pervert the gospel. Seventh-Day Adventism is a New World Order religion, part of the occult connection (part 2), founded by Masonic demonic influence. Shame on any professed Christian who operates a bookstore that sells satanic materials produced by unsaved Seventh Day Adventists…
A business card from an apostate religious bookstore
Notice the All-Seeing Eye of Horus, which has its origin in ancient Egyptian occultism and pagan religion. The eye is symbolic of occult knowledge, known only by occultists (and to a lesser degree by outsiders who study the workings of the occult). We as the public are on the outside; they are on the inside. We can only do our best to try to figure out what they are conspiring to do to us next. Notice that the eye is always connected with the Masonic pyramid (also seen in the business care above). For any believer to employ the use of the All-Seeing Eye or The Great Pyramid is sinful, showing support for the coming Antichrist. The occult has infiltrated our churches, religious bookstores, and Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) industry.
The base of the great pyramid is humanity. Interestingly, The Great Pyramid in Egypt at Giza was never finished, revealing that Satan has been wanting to achieve a New World Order since the beginning of time. We see this evidenced at the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 when men attempted to unite against God. The capstone is the New World Order, which includes all the members of the ruling elite who decide whether we live or die, have a home or not, eat or starve, drive or walk, et cetera. Don’t believe it? Members of the occult love to mock us, putting their mark right under our noses, speaking to us loud and clear, while we ignorantly have no clue as to what is going on like total morons. Take the 911 Memorial for instance!
The eye ultimately represents Lucifer, the angel of light (2nd Corinthians 11:15). It represents the forming Beast System of the Antichrist, aka, the New World Order. Knowledge of this diabolical plot has existed for millenniums, which is clearly shown by the fact that The Great Pyramid at Giza was never finished, i.e., the capstone was never installed. Such a capstone would have weighed hundreds-of-thousands of pounds if not millions if made of gold. It is not only unlikely but impossible, that such a stone could be stolen without notice. 2nd Corinthians 4:4 teaches that Satan is the god of this world. As such he knows more than any human being what is going on.
Luciferians idolize the owl, a creature with keen eyesight to peer into the night. Witches love owls. C.S. Lewis wrote about witchcraft and is a favored author of witches today, including the witch who authored the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling. Rowling has publicly stated that C.S. Lewis is one of her favorite authors who influenced her work.
It’s all about enlightenment. Even members of the occult are trying to learn what is going on. As older members die, new members must be initiated into occult groups and taught in order to keep Satan’s work going. This is very important to the Devil. Hence, Satan is very much involved with the occult, training new blood, and making sure that his diabolical scheme is accomplished. This is why there are varying degrees within Freemasonry and other occult groups; such as the Rosicrucian Order. As the initiate advances within the group, they acquire more knowledge.
Demonic occults are always recruiting persons of reputation, power, influence and wealth. Perhaps this is one reason why occult symbols are made so visible in public so that when new initiates are recruited, they are shown the power and influence of the occult. Very few people see what is happening, because they don’t care enough to look for it. But if you open your eyes, as Jesus said, then you will be absolutely amazed. Jesus told us to be as wise as serpents. Matthew 10:16, “Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Amen! We are as sheep amongst hungry wolves. Jesus told us not to be naive.
Albert Pike, the most influential and notorious member of Freemasonry (and the founder of the sinister KKK), openly worshipped Lucifer. Pike predicted 3 world wars before his death in 1892. So far, he’s been 100% accurate, and WWIII is next between the Arabs and the Jews.
Be Not Conformed to This World!
Please understand that I don’t condemn anyone, for the Bible condemns all of us as guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners. My salvation solely rests in Christ’s righteousness, because of the precious blood that He gave for our sins. My intention is not to be unkind; but rather, to expose the demonic nature of so-called “Christian rock” and “Christian Hip Hop” music. The issue is not about the performers personally; but rather, about the worldly music they claim to sing in Jesus’ name.
Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” God commands us not to be conformed to this world. The Greek word for “conformed” here is “suschematizo” and means “to fashion alike, i.e. conform to the same pattern.” Is this not what religious rockers are doing? Yes, exactly so! They are fashioning themselves to the sinful world. Repackaged carnal music that is labeled as “Christian” is apostasy.
It cannot be denied that music is extremely powerful, a spiritual medium by which people are affected greatly.
Who Are CCM Fans Really Worshipping?
The Old Testament tells us that wicked king Nebuchadnezzar set up a golden IMAGE and demanded that everyone worship the IMAGE or be killed…
Daniel 3:5-7, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up. And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up.”
Carefully notice that Revelation 13:15 tells us that the same thing will happen when the Antichrist comes, i.e., he will demand worship of the IMAGE (just as Nebuchadnezzar did), or else the masses of people will be killed…
Revelation 13:15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
It is very interesting that king Nebuchadnezzar didn’t ask the people to worship him directly; but instead, worship an IMAGE. Nebuchadnezzar wanted to be worshipped, but he knew that he was just a man; so he needed an image 90-feet tall of pure gold to magnify himself through the image. The Antichrist will just be a man; but he will magnify himself through an IMAGE that the Bible says will speak and come to life (Revelation 13:15).
Those who refuse to worship the Beast’s IMAGE will be killed, just as Nebuchadnezzar proclaimed death to anyone who didn’t bow to worship his IMAGE. This is important to understand, showing us why Satan is using the Masonic pyramid and All-seeing Eye to recruit followers to the New World Order. It is for the same purpose as Nebuchadnezzar’s IMAGE.
So where does Contemporary Christian Music [CCM] come into play? It’s for the same purpose as all worldly music today. Daniel 3:5, “That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up.” Everyone was instructed to worship Nebuchadnezzar’s image when they heard the music, all kinds of music. The Bible lists all sorts of musical instruments. It wasn’t about singing or lyrics, but THE MUSIC.
Likewise, in these Last Days, Satan is conditioning the masses of this world to worship the Beast, and the IMAGE of the Beast, through music. The similarities between Nebuchadnezzar’s IMAGE and the Antichrist’s IMAGE are more than merely coincidental. Satan’s methods haven’t changed in thousands of years.
Let’s go further…
George Harrison of The Beatles sang his hit song, MY SWEET LORD. Christian youth all across the world and America were singing along… My Sweet Lord. But then AT THE END of the song, Harrison deceitfully changed the lyrics to, MY SWEET LORD, HARE KRISHNA!!! Harrison’s 1971 song MY SWEET LORD, is a song of praise to the Hindu god, Krishna. In fact, Harrison admits that he did that to trick people.
In his 1982 interview with the Hare Krishna organization George Harrison stated…
“I wanted to show that Hallelujah and Hare Krishna are quite the same thing. I did the voices singing ‘Hallelujah’ and then the change to ‘Hare Krishna’ so that people would be chanting the maha-mantra-before they knew what was going on! I had been chanting Hare Krishna for a long time, and this song was a simple idea of how to do a Western pop equivalent of a mantra which repeats over and over again the holy names. I don’t feel guilty or bad about it; in fact, it saved many a heroin addict’s life.” [emphasis added]
People who would normally be offended by someone praising “Hare Krishna my sweet Lord,” were caught off guard by the way the song was arranged. The listener would follow along with the words “Hallelujah, my sweet Lord” several times before it subtly changed to “Hare Krishna, my sweet Lord.”
By that time the listener had already been mesmerized by the music and the song. George Harrison was an imposter who rejected Jesus Christ and is burning in the fires of Hell forever because he died in his sins without Jesus Christ. I say this with sadness. 2nd Peter 3:9 declares that “God is not willing for any to perish” in their sins.
CCM is leading the religious world into the New World Order. This is plainly evidenced by all the occult imagery on their album covers, and the Ecumenical Movement (i.e., let’s unite by error, rather than divide over truth). CCM’s true colors will come out IN THE END, when the Antichrist appears; just as George Harrison’s song MY SWEET LORD, deceived millions of people to worship Hare Krishna of the Hindu religion. You are being deceived, my friend.
Yes, Contemporary Christian Music is beautiful. Third Day, Mercy Me and Tree63 sing some really pretty music, uplifting one’s spirit. I am a musician, so I love all kinds of music, naturally. But as a Christian, I have to side with THE TRUTH, and God’s Word. I don’t like being the bearer of bad news; but if the bad news is THE TRUTH, then so be it.
The Gospel is two-thirds bad news… Jesus died and was buried. Those were very sad occasions to the Lord’s friends, even though they knew it was necessary for redemption. So even though the Gospel is two-thirds bad news, we call it the “Gospel” (i.e., the good news) because it was all a good thing that the Lord was doing to redeem us. Amen!
I’ve researched the CCM crowd and their music, and they’re all rubbing shoulders with the sinful world. They’re all using corrupt Bibles. They’re all doctrinally compromised, prioritizing love and unity over truth and righteousness. They all sell their music for-profit and the CCM industry rakes in billions-of-dollars annually. The lyrics are extremely vague and none of their websites tell anyone how to be saved to enter Heaven.
It is self-evident that music will be a big part of Satan’s New World Order. Just as millions of fans idolize their favorite Rock stars these days, so will the masses of society idolize and worship the Antichrist when he comes; who may very well be a Rock star, such as Bono from U2 (who is a member of the CFR and has worldwide influence). If 11,000,000 Americans will buy Marilyn Manson’s garbage, then they’ll certainly follow the Antichrist when he comes.
The Christian life is not a playground, it’s a battleground.
Jesus Wants Us to Be With Him, That We May See Him in All His Glory
The following Scripture is precious! Jesus wants us to be with Him. John 17:24, “Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.” Our precious Redeemer wants us with Him. Jesus wants to show us His kingdom, and for us to be there together with Him, that we may witness Him reign upon His throne in all power and might, in all His glory, the Lord of Heaven and earth. What a Savior!!!
What does it all mean? It simply means that Jesus is coming back soon my beloved friend. Are you ready to meet your Maker? 2nd Thessalonians 2:3 teaches that the Rapture must happen BEFORE the Antichrist will be revealed. 1st Thessalonians 4:17 plainly teaches that all Christians will be “CAUGHT UP” to meet the Lord in the air. We will be gathered as a family, to be with our Lord, Who wants us to see Him in all His glory in Heaven. What a glorious day that will be!
CCM Embraces the Catholic Church, and the Catholic Church Embraces CCM
The creepy photo to the right is where the Anti-Christ Pope publicly gave a speech (see the big Horus eye?). This is Spain’s City of the Arts and Sciences.I think it’s the biggest eye I have ever seen! Read More. Clearly, the Catholic Church is in bed with the New World Order; and apostates like Billy Graham’s ChristianityTodayare committing spiritual adultery with them (James 4:4).
Third Day sings in their song God of Wonders, “Hallelujah to the Lord of Heaven and earth, the Lord of all creation!” It’s too bad they don’t love the Lord enough to speak the truth to their neighbor as Ephesians 4:25.
Over one billion Roman Catholics foolishly think that their church, sacraments and chanting the Rosary to Mary will save them; but they are all headed for the Lake of fire in unbelief (Revelation 20:11-15).
In fact, in August of 2009 Third Day joined together with other apostate Christian rockers, including the Catholic band, Glenridge, to perform at a festival. Casting Crowns and Newsboyswere also performing. Drummer Brandon Fitts, 20, of the apostate band, Glenridge, does not discriminate between different Christian denominations…
“It was a cool experience being one of the only Catholic bands to play at Soulfest,” said Fitts. “We love being Catholic but know that we are one body under the love of Jesus Christ no matter what Christian church you go to on Sunday. We make sure to love everyone.”
Poor Brandon will never hear the Gospel around these CCM apostates! Satan is such a deceitful liar. Nearly every false cult in America believes that Jesus died, was buried and rose. You need to explain to lost sinners that salvation is by faith alone, and not by works of self-righteousness (Romans 4:5-6; Ephesians 2:8-9). No CCM band or singer will speak the truth in this matter. Their lyrics are so vague that Catholics accept their music.
Church of Christ minister, Max Lucado, has openly stated that his goal is to unite the various denominations, especially Catholics to Protestants. It is evil, evil, evil. The big question is: where do you stand in all of this? It’s not a complicated issue if you believe that the King James Bible is God’s inspired Words; because every CCM artist supports the Ecumenical Movement, who have abandoned the King James Bible.
I reject all Contemporary Christian Music because they’re all caught up in the Lordship Salvation heresy. They all use corrupted modern Bibles. They all refrain from criticizing ANY religion as being of the Devil. They won’t mention Hell, eternal punishment, the Lake of Fire, the bottomless pit, and why should they? (those words have all been removed from the New International Version of the Bible. CCM bands might use the word “judgment” occasionally, but it is so vague that it could mean anything. There is NO doctrinal integrity to today’s music, as compared to the old precious hymns of the Christian faith. Instead of “Onward Christian Soldier”… it’s Tobymac’s garbage…
That hip, that rock
Give me that funky
Yo stick it in red
We got the cred
The saddest things are the apostates who write to me, attacking me, claiming that TobyMac is God’s man. Talk about warped! It makes God want to go vomit (Revelation 3:15-16). Toby McKeehan is serving Satan! They are so disillusioned that they’ve lost all sense of reality. TobyMac is nearing his 46th birthday, looking like a ghetto street punk in his teens. Uh, it’s time to grow up Toby! 1st Timothy 6:10 teaches that the love of money is the root of all evil.
Christianity today promotes the Catholic and New Age Band, Ooberfüse, who honored the Pope with their record, HEART’S CRY, saturated with New Age doctrines (e.g., “She is the force,” “source of life,” “flowing hidden deep inside”). Such key terms and phrases are what New Age is all about. The Bible teaches that when the Antichrist comes, he will honor “the god of forces” (Daniel 11:38).
It’s “Sin City” Vegas Toby!
James 4:4 doesn’t mean anything to CCM singers and fans. James 4:4, “Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever, therefore, will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.”
We are living in times of woeful apostasy when nothing is held as sacred or holy anymore. Apostates either pervert the Gospel by teaching that you have to try really hard to stop sinning to be saved (Romans 4:5-6); or else they teach that Christians can indulge in wickedness with God’s permission and without consequences (2nd Corinthians 5:10-11). In between, you have every sort of false teaching imaginable floating around in society and our churches today.
James 4:4 teaches that to be a friend, i.e., to assist, the world is to be God’s enemy. The fact that TobyMac goes to Las Vegas ought to raise a red flag and sound alarm bells in any God-fearing person’s mind. Las Vegas is the Devil’s playground, a hellhole of iniquity, and no place for a professed Christian to go…

Jesus warned that the Last Days would be the same as before the destructive flood of Noah’s day (Matthew 24:37-38). The people were so preoccupied eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage (throwing parties), that they didn’t know what hit them when the flood came. It was over before they knew it and everyone was burning in Hell beneath, except Noah and his immediate family. The people could have known; but they rejected the knowledge of God, just as nearly everyone spits on God today.
Conclusion Of The Matter
“You are not going to be what you decide to be, you are going to be
what you decide to be around.” — Dr. Jack Hyles
Educate yourself! God said He wants believers to be as wise as serpents, but as harmless as doves. We certainly can’t be wise if were ignorant of reality in the world in which we live. The Apostle Paul stated that he was NOT IGNORANT of Satan’s devices (2nd Corinthians 2:11). If all you do is sit on a couch, drinking beer and watching TV, then you are part of the problem. Doing nothing always allows evil men to rise to power.
Jesus had every reason to drop that cross and quit. I wouldn’t have blamed Him. I mean, look at how the world treated Him, but He never hurt anyone. Jesus came to do good, heal the sick, feed the hungry, cause the blind to see, teach the truth, and mend broken hearts; but the self-righteous hypocrites weren’t happy until He was dead, and even then they called Him a deceiver (Matthew 27:63).
Every true Christian that has taken a stand for the Lord in a secular workplace knows what it means to be persecuted. The unsaved world hates Jesus Christ and His disciples (John 15:19). Something is very wrong with your so-called Christian walk if everyone likes you (2nd Timothy 3:12). It’s been 2,000 years and people still hate Jesus today, saying all manner of evil against the perfect and sinless Lamb of God, Jesus Christ. If you are under Satanic attack while soul-winning, preaching the truth and living for God; then you know that you’re doing something right, hitting the Devil where it hurts. If the Devil kicks you in the butt, you kick him in the groin!
Make no mistake, the one-world religion that is now forming will progress into a Luciferian religion as it’s growing. The Ecumenical Movement (i.e., Let’s unite religiously by error; instead of dividing over truth as God commands) is giving birth to a monster, a deformed cataclysmic one-world religious system, that will eventually be led by the False Prophet (perhaps the Pope). The False Prophet, the Dragon (Satan) and the Antichrist (the Beast) will work together.
The Antichrist will appear soon, as evidenced by the New World Order rising up all around us. The handwriting is as clear as day. Don’t be blinded to THE TRUTH. Don’t put off receiving the Lord; belief in Him now as the Christ, the Son of God, to forgive your sins (John 20:31).Source
