Beyonce’s Filthy Song “Church Girl”

Beyoncé, one of the most influential pop singers, has long sought to break down the divinely-made barrier between the holy and the unholy. The song “Church Girl,” from her new album, justifies those who want to love God and the world, too, and it glorifies self-love, which is the heart of end-time apostasy. “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…” (2 Timothy 3:1-2). “Church Girl” features the Black gospel group The Clark Sisters. “Church Girl” begins with the pious words, “I wanna be centered in thy will,” but quickly moves into the territory of rebellion and moral filth. “I’m warnin’ everybody, soon as I get in this party I’m gon’ let go of this body, I’m gonna love on me. Nobody can judge me but me. I was born free. Bad girls actin’ naughty. Church girls actin’ loose. Bad girls actin’ raunchy.” Many of the lyrics cannot be quoted. The song claims that “church girls” who want to live for themselves are persecuted by the churches, but the vast majority of churches are silent in the face of evil. “Church Girls” is a song of the unredeemed, a hymn of apostasy. It is a blatant rejection of the holy God and His holy Word. The pop culture is the devil’s most effective siren call to church youth, and churches must protect their young people by regeneration, biblical education, discipleship, and effectual separation. The true grace of God is described in Titus 2:11-14: “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.”
