Beyonce is now promoting witchcraft. Christian women need to break up with her music

Should Christian Women Break Up with Beyoncé?— Allen Parr, Jackie Hill Perry

As we mature in our relationship with Christ, we should shut down anything that mocks him.

It’s time for Christian women to do that with Beyonce. We tolerate her promoting sexual attention seeking, feminism, vulgarity, and materialism.

Now, we’re tolerating her promotion of witchcraft and mockery of a holy God. This is the same holy God that we believe created this universe by merely speaking and then sent his son to die for us when we messed it all up. 

At one point in her Destiny’s Child days, she claimed to be a Christian, but Jesus invites us to judge people by their fruits.

God tends to fire off the most disastrous punishments to people who mess around with witchcraft. Her Disney movie, Black is King, was so saturated with African demon worship that I was afraid to put it on my house. Her latest album, Renaissance, is just as offensive if you’re sensitive to the Holy Spirit.

Faith in Christ boils down to one word: Loyalty

When you are loyal to someone, you choose them over any competing options.

With Christ especially, you’re either loyal to him, or you’re not. You’re either drawing people to him or scattering them. He very clearly says that those who love him, obey him, and we better be ready to part ways with our own mama and daddy if they try to pull us away from him.

Entertainment or indoctrination?

Nothing is just entertainment. All of these artists are promoting their worldview. 

I can appreciate that many of us grew up listening to Beyonce, and her songs are the soundtrack for our life’s milestones. I, too, probably broke up with some bum after listening to Me, Myself, and I.

She’s even tackled racial justice themes. Unfortunately, even the most anti-Christ message can get a high five from Black folks, as long as there’s a little social justice mixed in.

We’ve applauded her rise to mega-stardom, but women who follow Christ should not be more loyal to Beyonce than we are to our Father in Heaven. If she’s blatantly mocking our faith in Christ, she needs to be wiped from our playlists. The advocates for people with disabilities had no problem hand slapping her because of one offensive line, and she changed it.

But Christian women are too busy putting concert tickets on credit cards to notice her offensive lyrics. Christian men are too busy lusting after her to notice that their little daughters are gyrating just like her. 

As therapist and Bible teacher Dr. Sarita Lyons put it: Beyonce has deceived Christian women to think that you can be both Christ-like and carnal.

Scriptures about messing around with witchcraft (aside from the entire old testament)

1 Corinthians 10

10 Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ. But with most of them God was not well pleased, for their bodies were scattered in the wilderness.

Now these things became our examples, to the intent that we should not lust after evil things as they also lusted. And do not become idolaters as were some of them. As it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.” Nor let us commit sexual immorality, as some of them did, and in one day twenty-three thousand fell; nor let us [a]tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed by serpents; 10 nor complain, as some of them also complained, and were destroyed by the destroyer. 11 Now [b]all these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for our [c]admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

12 Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to [d]bear it.

14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry. 15 I speak as to wise men; judge for yourselves what I say. 16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the [e]communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 17 For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.

18 Observe Israel after the flesh: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices [f]partakers of the altar? 19 What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? 20 Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

23 All things are lawful [g]for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things [h]edify. 24 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.

25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience’ sake; 26 for “the earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.”

27 If any of those who do not believe invites you to dinner, and you desire to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no question for conscience’ sake. 28 But if anyone says to you, “This was offered to idols,” do not eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for conscience’ sake; [i]for “the earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.” 29 “Conscience,” I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another man’s conscience? 30 But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks?

31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 32 Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God, 33 just as I also please all men in all things, not seeking my own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.

Deuteronomy 18:9-13

When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

Ephesians 6:10-20

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the [a]wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of [b]the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints— 19 and for me, that utterance may be given to me, that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

Exodus 32

32 Now when the people saw that Moses delayed coming down from the mountain, the people gathered together to Aaron, and said to him, “Come, make us [a]gods that shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.”

And Aaron said to them, “Break off the golden earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” So all the people broke off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron. And he received the gold from their hand, and he fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf.

Then they said, “This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!”

So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord.” Then they rose early on the next day, offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.

And the Lord said to Moses, “Go, get down! For your people whom you brought out of the land of Egypt have corrupted themselves. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them. They have made themselves a molded calf, and worshiped it and sacrificed to it, and said, ‘This is your god, O Israel, that brought you out of the land of Egypt!’ ” And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a [b]stiff-necked people! 10 Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may [c]consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.”

11 Then Moses pleaded with [d]the Lord his God, and said: “Lord, why does Your wrath burn hot against Your people whom You have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, ‘He brought them out to harm them, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people. 13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.’ ” 14 So the Lord relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.

15 And Moses turned and went down from the mountain, and the two tablets of the Testimony were in his hand. The tablets were written on both sides; on the one side and on the other they were written. 16 Now the tablets were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God engraved on the tablets.

17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said to Moses, “There is a noise of war in the camp.”

18 But he said:

It is not the noise of the shout of victory,
Nor the noise of the cry of defeat,
But the sound of singing I hear.”

19 So it was, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. So Moses’ anger became hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain. 20 Then he took the calf which they had made, burned it in the fire, and ground it to powder; and he scattered it on the water and made the children of Israel drink it. 21 And Moses said to Aaron, “What did this people do to you that you have brought so great a sin upon them?”

22 So Aaron said, “Do not let the anger of my lord become hot. You know the people, that they are set on evil. 23 For they said to me, ‘Make us gods that shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’ 24 And I said to them, ‘Whoever has any gold, let them break it off.’ So they gave it to me, and I cast it into the fire, and this calf came out.”

25 Now when Moses saw that the people were unrestrained (for Aaron had not restrained them, to their shame among their enemies), 26 then Moses stood in the entrance of the camp, and said, “Whoever is on the Lord’s side—come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him. 27 And he said to them, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let every man put his sword on his side, and go in and out from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.’ ” 28 So the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses. And about three thousand men of the people fell that day. 29 Then Moses said, [e]“Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, that He may bestow on you a blessing this day, for every man has opposed his son and his brother.”

30 Now it came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. So now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” 31 Then Moses returned to the Lord and said, “Oh, these people have committed a great sin, and have made for themselves a god of gold! 32 Yet now, if You will forgive their sin—but if not, I pray, blot me out of Your book which You have written.”

33 And the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book. 34 Now therefore, go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold, My Angel shall go before you. Nevertheless, in the day when I visit for punishment, I will visit punishment upon them for their sin.”

35 So the Lord plagued the people because of what they did with the calf which Aaron made.

Why are Christian women still in the bey-hive? 

There are only two logical reasons why women who follow Christ would continue to support Beyoncé’s work:

  • We’re compromising and don’t feel enough conviction to take a strong stance against someone we admire.
  • We’re too Biblically illiterate to realize she’s violating everything in scripture. 

If you’re still confused about why Christian women should cancel Beyoncé (and any of her other minions), here are two discussions to spell it out. 

Take home messages & reflection questions

  • Anything that promotes witchcraft is antichrist. You cannot follow Christ and also follow antichrist work. Pick your side.
  • Don’t even get me started on Jay Z. But let’s pray that both of them will get a revelation of Christ and declare him as their savior before they take their last breath.
  • If you’re a follower of Christ who still listens to Beyoncé or spent hundreds of dollars on tickets to her concert, please share your reasons why in the comments?
  • Which other artists is the holy spirit telling you to break up with?

  1. I took my sister to the Beyoncé concert here in Miami. She is a life long fan and spent hundreds of dollars to see her. After about an hour and a half she called me to come pick her up. When I asked why, her response was that the concert was WAY too crowded. People were on top of each other just to get a closer look at the stage. It made her feel uncomfortable and she wasn’t able to really enjoy the show. I thought about all of the concerts in the past that caused people to be crushed by others and cause serious injuries so I was glad to go get my sister out of that madness. Bottom line, the artist isn’t always gonna be blamed so you should really look into the artists fan base and really look at the others who are infatuated with the artist. Is this who you want to be associated with? Would you share other interests outside of this one artist? Are they really your people?

    1. You are absolutely right. Your sister was smart to call you and you were smart to go pick her up. We are not risking our lives for concerts. And your question is spot-on: Is this who you want to be associated with?
