This news just hurts my soul – and makes an anger that I certainly hope is 'righteous'. Seems that most of the songs nominated for Song of the Year at the next Grammy's are nothing but filth. Replete with the F*** word, the N***** word and terrible themes, the Grammy's are celebrating the destruction of beauty.
Dennis Prager has an expose at National Review Online that describes more detail here. Here's just an example of how we as a culture have "defined deviancy down":
Among the five nominees for Record of the Year is a song titled “F*** You,” with the F-word, of course, spelled out, and pronounced.
Here are the song’s opening lyrics:
I see you driving ’round town
With the girl I love and I’m like,
Oo, oo, ooo
I guess the change in my pocket
Wasn’t enough I’m like,
And f*** her too!
This is nominated for Song of the Year?!
What a reminder that we are to be the light of the world, thinking of things that are holy, righteous and pure. It sure doesnt seem too hard to be 'set apart' in a world that has gone down the toilet as fast as this one
Keep shining beauty in the darkness – I truly believe that the people will crave it and seek out what makes you winsome as a Christian. At the same time, say a prayer for our culture.
Grace and Peace- Mike
