The serious and deadly nature of Mohammedan religion confronts the west on a daily basis. This so called “religion of peace” has shown its violent face so frequently in the past two decades that only the most benighted of observers still believes that “religion of peace” label. The suicide bombing in Manchester England was particularly brutal. It took the life of eight-year-old Saffie Rose Roussos and 21 others, leaving 59 people injured – 12 of whom were under the age of 16.
England’s “Prime Minister May said Abedi the suicide bomber deliberately chose ‘his time and place to cause maximum carnage’ in the young crowd. All acts of terrorism are cowardly,” Ms May said outside her Downing Street office, after a meeting with British security and intelligence chiefs, “But this attack stands out for its appalling sickening cowardice, deliberately targeting innocent, defenseless children and young people who should have been enjoying one of the most memorable nights of their lives.”
What was that event which, according to the Prime Minister, should have been one of the most memorable nights of their lives? It was the Ariana Grande concert which was part of her European tour she called the Dangerous Woman tour. That title now has a rather sinister and eerie tone to it. The concert turned from dangerous to deadly. I had never heard of this pop musician before this suicide bomber struck. But looking into what she stands for is eyeopening. She is an advocate for sodomy, frequently talks about demons interacting with her, was raised in a Christian household but now rejects the faith for a very particular reason – sodomy. She is as pro-sodomy as possible and has embraced the satanic jewish occult world as a Kabbalist. Kabbalah is a jewish occult belief system. It features the lie “that doing good keeps the universe too balanced and slows down the return of God. Therefore sin is virtue; and observance of the Torah morality was the sin. The essence of Satanism is to turn good and evil on their head…For the Kabbalist, good and evil are ‘relative’ so evil is an illusion. Instead of right and wrong, Kabbalah says every action is like the moon, with a light side and dark side. The Kabbalists say that the adept must embrace his or her dark side to become, “a fully integrated human being”. Not everyone who studies Kabbalah becomes a Satanist, but, Kabbalah is a prerequisite for ALL Luciferian practitioners…The Kabbalah is a hoax that allows its followers to reformulate reality to serve their selfish interests. This is why they teach that “truth is by its nature subjective.” Modernism and secularism are based on the Kabbalah. It is the reason our “civilization” is preoccupied with violence, sex and the occult, and why current events appeared to be scripted in Hollywood…Kabbalah is a system of beliefs that deny the Holy Bible as God’s inspired Words. Kabbalah rejects Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah, the Godhead Who became incarnate (in the flesh), born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and Who died on the cross for the sins of mankind, raising up bodily from the dead three days later. Kabbalah and Christianity are diametrically opposed to each other.”
So as a Kabbalahist, Ariana advocates for sodomy and was appalled that Christianity stands against this sin. She, like the pied piper of Hamlin, is leading a generation of young people to a very dangerous place as a dangerous woman.
What is not surprising in this is that when a person turns themselves over to Satan, they receive power, fame, and fortune. It is the same path pop tarts Madonna, Spears, and many others have traveled – however, there will be a terrible price for them to pay in the end unless they repent.
One aspect of the reports about this concert is particularly troubling – the ages of the victims. It is reported that at least one 8 year old taken by her mother to the concert has died – mom sustained serious shrapnel wounds. Three 14 year olds, one 15 year old sent off by her parents to the concert, and a 17 year old have also died. The first named victim of the Manchester terror attack was Georgina Bethany Callander, an 18-year-old Ariana Grande superfan who was excited to see her idol. Mothers waiting to collect their teenage daughters were also killed.
I wonder what parent would take their eight year old to a concert called Dangerous Woman by a pop star promoting every form of immorality and satanism?
So while we can accurately measure the damage done by the suicide bomber, counting body bags, reading the list of those in the hospital, it is far more difficult to measure exactly the long term damage done to a society by the music and lyrics of such a pop tart. Yet this pop star’s damaging impact is so little thought of that the Prime Minister of England spoke of this concert as what “should have been … one of the most memorable nights of these children’s lives.” I can almost hear Nero’s fiddle playing while Rome is burning.
The destruction of our world by pop culture is palpable. One measure is in Pew Research Center polling shows that support for homosexual marriage has steadily grown. In 2001, only a minority supported homosexual marriage. That has changed dramatically in 16 years. Based on polling in 2016, a minority of Americans born before 1945 (38%) support homosexual marriage. But what is even more telling is that of the millennials born after 1981, in the 2016 survey, 71% of them supported homosexual marriage. The fires of Rome are burning. It is more likely that the corrupting pop culture icons such as Ariana have influenced the thinking of the younger generation.
When we look at the situation, we ought to see the condition of the lost and have compassion on them. That compassion is rooted in a memory, remembering our life before we came to Christ. In Titus 3:3 Paul writes, “For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.”
