Descent Into Darkness: 

Katy Perry Renounces The Christian Faith

Reprinted below, in full, unedited, for informational, educational, and research purposes:

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and [money].- Jesus Christ, Matthew 6:24.”
Pop Mega-Star Katy Perry recently made waves in the Christian media when she announced that she is not a Christian and is an adherent to the New Age Movement. While there may be shock and sadness over this announcement,Beginning and End has chronicled the blatant sinful rebellion that has been a part of Perry’s music and videos for years. Her announcement is yet another sign of pop culture’s open movement away from God and the promotion of anything to do with the Christian faith.

Perry has left behind her born-again past and finds spirituality through the  writing of Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now influenced the song  “This Moment”); practicing Transcendental Meditation (“the best thing I got out  of my previous relationship, because it was introduced to me via my  ex-husband”); and therapy. “I don’t believe in a heaven or a hell or an old man  sitting on a throne. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that  keeps me accountable. Accountability is rare to find, especially with people  like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you don’t want to hear.  I actually don’t trust people who start to turn on me because they get scared of  telling me the truth. I’m not Buddhist, I’m not Hindu, I’m not Christian, but I  still feel like I have a deep connection with God. I pray all the time—for  self-control, for humility. There’s a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying ‘thank  you’ sometimes is better than asking for things.” - Katy Perry interview in Marie Claire Magazine.
Perry started her career as a Contemporary Christian Music or CCM singer. When she did not achieve the financial success she envisioned for herself, she turned to pop music. Her first big smash single “I Kissed A Girl” was a celebration of lesbian exploration. The song, which led her to first multi-platinum album, launched Perry into superstardom and gave her legions of young adoring female fans who were captivated by her powerful voice and style. And thus the decision to sacrifice the faith in God and Christian values was made and Perry’s hit single became an anthem for girls to consider the fun and “coolness” of sinful rebellion against The Lord.
In the video below, Perry describes it herself:

As the verses above indicate, it is impossible to make fame and wealth the ultimate goal in one’s life and to serve God. 1 Timothy 6:10  says: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Scripture is clear that Satan can bestow Earthly riches on those who choose to follow him. When Jesus Christ was tempted by the Devil in the wilderness, the Bible explains this:
And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.  And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it.  If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine.  And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. – Luke 4:5-8.
The offer to the Messiah was not an idle one. Satan was literally offering Jesus Christ the kingdoms of the world, of which Satan has temporary authority over, as God allows [B&E: this is shown in greater detail in Chapter 1 of the Book of Jobfor those who want more information on this topic]. Quoting the Bible back to the Adversary, Jesus Christ resisted the Devil’s temptation and rightly proclaimed that only God in Heaven should be worshiped. Yet 2,000 years later, Satan still extends that offer to many people. And while it may not be in a face-to-face conversation as it was with Jesus Christ, it comes in the form of executives offering million-dollar contracts and a lavish celebrity lifestyle in exchange for influencing the world away from God and into sin.
Since the time of her first single, Perry has gone on to become one of the most successful singers of all time. All the while she became famous for her oversexed image. Wearing skimpy outfits, appearing nude in music videos and enticing lust in the eyes of her fans have become a Perry trademark. In her song, “E.T.” she sings about sexual relations with an alien, who could possibly be “the Devil.” (We covered this song in detail in our article Katy Perry’s “E.T.” Song And Video – Alien Deception Strikes Again). So from very early in her pop career, the abandoning of the Christian faith was apparent.
A Child Of The Devil?
Like many artists who openly oppose God, Perry has used 
occult imagery in her songs and videos.
In our article Katy Perry’s Dad: “Katy Is A Child Of The Devil”Beginning and Enddetailed the UK Sun’s story about a sermon in which Katy Perry’s dad, Keith Hudson, referred to his superstar daughter as “a child of the devil.” Both of Perry’s parents are pastors and believers in Charismatic Christianity, which involves a host of unbiblical practices. But her father’s apparent regrets over Perry’s career choices were obvious:
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation, and they were going at it. It was almost like church,” Keith said. “I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.” (source).
And this is what the world wants. To take what was once for God and turn into something of the world. Perry’s descent into rebellion has not stopped her pastor mother from supporting her. Her mother serves as her manager and travels with Perry on tour. So rather than rebuking their daughter with Godly instruction as the Bible commands, Perry’s mother has joined in on the multi-million dollar enterprise that is her pop star daughter. And this compromise in the faith always opens the door for the enemy to infiltrate.

So did Perry “lose her salvation”? How does this dangerous transition take place? Jesus Christ, in one of his parables describes Christians who follow the same spiritual road Perry has.  In the parable Jesus describes a sower- a farmer who is planting seeds on different surfaces.

Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:  And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up.  And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away.  And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.  And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.  And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable… And he said unto them…  The sower soweth the word.  And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;  And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word’s sake, immediately they are offended. And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word,  And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.   And these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some an hundred. – Mark 4:1-20.
As Jesus explained, the seeds in the parable were a metaphor for The Word of God or the Bible. And the different surfaces were the different types of responses people can have to hearing the Gospel message. For many, Satan uses whatever temptation necessary to let them no longer care about the Christian faith. Sometimes it can be persecution. Or a difficult experience. Or it can be the lure of riches and worldly desires. All these things can make someone who claims to be a Christian soon renounce their faith. But since they never truly had a strong “root” or foundation, they never truly received Jesus in their hearts to begin with.
To no surprise, Perry has now turned to the New Age movement. She cited Eckhart Tolle as in inspiration for one her songs. Tolle, a New Age movement guru, is the author of books such as “A New Earth” and “The Power of Now” which teach a message that each individual person has godhood within them. And through various mystical practices, this divine spark can be released. Thus there is no need for the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, salvation or forgiveness of sin. Heaven and Hell are also non-existent and the idea of believing in a God should be abandoned.
At the 2:00 mark in the video below, Oprah Winfrey one of the greatest promoters of New Age doctrine in the world, interviews Tolle on his spiritual message. In his responses and her explanation of his writings, it is clear that much, if not all of it runs contrary to Biblical Christianity.

Satan's Spokeperson: Oprah Winfrey:

Perry also claimed to be a practitioner of transcendental meditation, also a New Age practice which involves reciting a mantra, or single phrase, repeatedly, in order to achieve greater spiritual consciousness. When Jesus Christ taught His disciples how to pray, he specific reference to this practice: “But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.” (Matthew 6:7).
The spiritual descent from The Lord will always lead to occult spiritual practices. And Perry gave even more confirmation of this with the new artwork for her new single Dark Horse:

Note the All-Seeing Eye at the top of the image.  The All-Seeing Eye of Horus, also known as the All-Seeing Eye of Lucifer. Christian news site Cutting Edge writes:
“The Blazing Star (Pentagram) has been regarded as an emblem   of Omniscience, or the All-Seeing Eye, which to the Egyptian Initiates was the   emblem of Osiris, the Creator.” [Pike, "Morals and Dogma",   p. 26-16]
Therefore, the All-Seeing Eye is the symbol of the Omniscience   of the Sun God, Lucifer, whom they worship. These All-Seeing Eyes represents   the Omniscience of Horus, who is Lucifer in the Egyptian Satanic Mysteries.   Masonic author, Carl Claudy writes: “This is one of the oldest and most   widespread symbols denoting God. We find it in Egypt, in India … The Open   Eye of Egypt represented Osiris. In India, Siva is represented by an eye.”   [Carl Claudy, "Introduction To Freemasonry: Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft,   and Master mason Complete In One Volume", The Temple Publishers,   1931, p. 148, quoted by Dr. Cathy Burns, "Masonic   and Occult Symbols Illustrated", p. 357] (source).
 You Can Always Return To Christ

promoters of the occult in music today.
From her own statements, it’s clear that Katy Perry received the seeds of the Gospel. But the message of the salvation in Jesus Christ did not take root. She was not the “good soil” that Jesus Christ described in his parable. But this does not mean it is over for her. There are many people who may have visited church or started studying the Bible for a season, only to abandon the faith as time went on – whether it was because life became busy, they were turned off by the people at a certain church or just lost interest. Maybe this has happened to you. But this does not mean that God has written you off. Scripture is clear that God: “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9). If you are a Christian, pray for Katy Perry to repent and truly learn and  believe the Biblical Gospel – to know that through faith in Jesus Christ there can beforgiveness of sins and eternal life. No amount of money or fame is worth eternal punishment in hell. And maybe one day Perry will realize this and promote Christ over money, fame and sinful rebellion.

Katy Perry’s Dad: “Katy Is A Child Of The Devil”

"Pastor Keith Hudson, the father of pop music mega-star Katy Perry, recently preached several sermons in which he has shown regret over the sinful and satanic influence of his daughter’s music on the young people of the world. The UK Sunobtained footage of a recent sermon in which Hudson called Perry a “devil child” and showed footage of her negative influence, exposing the sinful rebellion her music promotes."
"Perry clearly erred from the faith by promoting homosexuality to the world and in particular children. As the years went on, Perry rose to multi-platinum status, becoming one of the most successful singers of all-time. All the while her music continued to celebrate sexual promiscuity and rebellion against authority. Perry also became renowned for wearing skimpy outfits and even appearing in naked in a video. Rather than sharing her “Christian upbringing” with the world, she instead chose to lead it into more sinful rebellion against The Lord."
"Hudson and his wife have run Keith Hudson Ministries for 32 years. According to their Statement of Faith they preach a a brand of charismatic Christianity with a host of unbiblical practices like speaking in tongues (intelligible, gibberish tongues, not the speaking of actual foreign languages as done in the Bible), faith healing, prophecy and “working miracles.” When a pastor takes the position that he is a “modern day prophet” he is proclaiming to receive new revelations from God that are not in the Bible. This opens the door for all sorts of heretical beliefs and activities because the pastor can simply claim, “God just told me to say this.” Of course Scripture makes it clear that there are no more prophets today:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” – Hebrews 1:1-2."

Vatican's UN Ambassador Monsignor Silvano Tomasi (L) speaks with 
Former Vatican Chief Prosecutor 
of Clerical Sexual Abuse Charles Scicluna 

Ralph Ovadal of Pilgrims Covenant Church, Monroe, Wisconsin, has just released this hard hitting, but truthful article from, reprinted below in full, unedited for informational, educational, and research purposes:

A Lovers’ Spat
“With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication” Revelation 17:2
I suppose there is a little grim satisfaction to be had from this story. What's good for the goose ought to be sauce for the gander. But then again, we are talking here about the papal religious/civil behemoth which usually gets a free pass when it comes to Rome's lying hypocrisy and evil machinations. The Vatican state, like the church, has the pope for its sovereign, as documented by the official Vatican City State web site. For instance, "The Pope is elected by the Cardinals who are under eighty years of age.He becomes Sovereign of Vatican City State the moment he accepts his election as Pope." The ecumenical evangelicals may want to note that their powerful friend in Rome lobbied for, and signed, the tyrannical, statist U.N Convention on the Rights of the Child which, thankfully, the USA has not yet signed on to. From the article below: "The Vatican was being questioned over its implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990, which it ratified in 1990. Since then it has repeatedly failed to submit reports on the progress it has made in protecting minors from predatory priests and other clergy."
The Antichrist papacy and the Roman Catholic Church are the archenemies of the true Christian faith and the most important of liberties beside which all others pale in significance, that liberty which is the fountainhead of all other liberties, that everlasting liberty which is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. John 8:36“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”
Ecumenical evangelicals conveniently ignore this reality because they foolishly think that Rome is their friend when it comes to protecting civil and religious liberty. But, they are only fools twice over in that Rome is working around the clock to destroy true civil and religious liberty. The Vatican, having never given up its dream of world domination, never met a collectivist, statist policy it did not love, even if a few details must needs be tinkered with. This is a fact, as some of us have labored over the years to document. Ecumenical evangelicals need to wake up to the reality that the supposed savior of civil and religious liberties they have embraced is in fact a vicious enemy not only of the Savior of souls they profess but also of our God-given civil and religious liberties. But why should that be any great surprise?
As for this current difficulty between the UN and the pope, it’s only a lovers’ spat which will be patched up soon enough. I close with this April, 2013 quote from UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon: “‘It is very important to meet a spiritual leader of the world,’ Ban said at the start of his meeting with the Argentine pope, who last month became the first non-European leader of the world's Catholics in nearly 1,300 years. ‘The Holy See and the UN share common goals and ideas,’ said Ban—one of the first world leaders to be received at an audience by the new pontiff” (Agence France-Presse).

Vatican tells UN hearing 'no excuse' for child abuse

Vatican has acknowledged there can be "no excuse" for child abuse, confronted for the first time at length and in public over the global priest sex abuse scandal

7:00PM GMT 16 Jan 2014
Victims of clerical abuse accused the Vatican of obfuscating and using “disingenous” arguments as representatives on Thursday came in for unprecedented public questioning by the United Nations over the Catholic Church’s cover-up of the rape of thousands of children by sexually abusive priests.
In testimony to a UN committee in Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, the Vatican’s representative, showed a degree of remorse over church sex abuse scandals, saying that “such crimes can never be justified”.
But he reiterated an argument that the Vatican has long used — that the Holy See cannot be held responsible for the actions of clergy members in countries around the world because its remit extends only to those living and working within the Vatican City State, a tiny sovereign territory where less than 40 children reside.
Priests were “not functionaries of the Vatican but citizens of their countries and fall under the jurisdiction of their own countries”, he said.
The argument was dismissed by campaigners, who said it was clear that the Vatican is the hub of the world-wide Catholic Church and issues orders to dioceses around the globe.
“It is just so disingenuous for Church officials to claim that national governments are responsible for prosecuting clergy when those same Church officials have obstructed justice, helped predator priests move jurisdictions, destroyed evidence and paid off victims and witnesses to remain silent,” said Barbara Blaine, a victim of abuse herself and the president of the US-based Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP).
The degree to which the Vatican tackles the issue of sexually abusive clergy is being seen as a key test of the 10-month-old papacy of Pope Francis. He has announced almost weekly initiatives to reform the Holy See’s governance and clean up its finances, but has said little about the shame of predatory priests.
The Vatican has been condemned for moving abusive clergy from one diocese or parish to another, destroying or withholding evidence and failing to report suspected abuse to the police.
“The new Pope seems to be making encouraging gestures in a lot of areas, but he’s doing nothing to even begin to expose — much less reverse —decades of selfish church cover-ups that endanger kids and protect predators. It’s very disappointing. What we heard today felt like more of the same,” Ms Blaine said.
The Vatican was being questioned over its implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in 1990, which it ratified in 1990. Since then it has repeatedly failed to submit reports on the progress it has made in protecting minors from predatory priests and other clergy.
Kirsten Sandberg, the committee’s chairwoman, said: “The view of the committee is that the best way to prevent abuses is to reveal old ones - openness instead of sweeping offences under the carpet. It seems to date your procedures are not very transparent.”
Last month Pope Francis announced the setting up of a committee to address the issue, but victims’ groups described the initiative as “meaningless”. As the UN session was underway, the Pope told worshippers in the Vatican that abuse scandals had “cost us a lot of money, but (paying damages) is only right.”
“Do we feel shame? There are so many scandals that I do not want to name them individually but everyone knows about them,” he said.
Some campaigners saw a glimmer of hope in Geneva, arguing that the shame of being publicly questioned might propel change within the Church.
“This is the first time that questions are being asked,” said Pam Spees, a human rights lawyer for the US-based Center for Constitutional Rights.
“I think we are seeing a shift and monitoring by international bodies can only be a good thing.”


January 17, 2014
This week, once again, Washington politicians failed to listen to the American people. The Senate passed a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, and the Majority Leader and Senate Democrats refused to reexamine the detrimental harms many families are facing due to Obamacare. The expansion of federal power and the lawlessness promoted among Senate Democrats and the President must stop.
Just this year, President Obama has delayed the employer mandate by a year, without the approval of Congress. He has chosen to modify enforcement of drug crimes, without the approval of Congress. He has granted legal status to illegal immigrants, without the approval of Congress.
We have had enough. It is time to make D.C. listen. I hope you will keep reading below for an update on my recent efforts to bring the people’s voice to Washington.
All the best,

We Should Defund Obamacare and Fund Military Pensions
On Thursday, Sen. Cruz asked for unanimous consent to pass one amendment to prohibit the omnibus spending bill from funding Obamacare, then a second amendment to defund Obamacare and use the funds to restore cuts to military pensions.

Sen. Cruz: We Need to Make DC Listen. We Need to Stop the Harms of Obamacare:

"This $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill is outrageous enough, but on top of that it provides direct funding for Obamacare, which is destroying jobs, killing insurance plans, causing premiums to increase and people to lose their doctors. We should defund Obamacare and focus our tax dollars on priorities that help Americans, such as restoring full funding for military pensions for the men and women who protect us. Instead, the Senate squelched any debate over Obamacare and proceeded to pass its trillion dollar spending bill no one has even read. The fact that the Washington establishment is hailing a massive $1 trillion omnibus spending bill as a worthy achievement is exactly what's wrong with our government today."
Chilling Report Concludes Benghazi Attacks Preventable; Families of Victims Deserve the Truth
On Thursday, Sen. Cruz released the following statement on the Senate Select Committee’s Review of the Terrorist Attacks on U.S. Facilities in Benghazi, Libya:
"The majority views of the SSCI report confirm a number of things long suspected about the Benghazi attacks. Our government was warned, and there were steps that could have been taken to protect Americans. But our people were left at significant risk against a known terrorist threat, and when the attack came, there was no help to send. After the attack, the Obama administration tried to mask its failure with false claims of a protest over an Internet video. All the while, the terrorists who carried out this attack are still at large. Most chilling, however, is the conclusion that the attacks were preventable in the first place."
Sen. Cruz Questions Government Surveillance Programs
On Monday, in the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Cruz asked witnesses if government surveillance programs have focused too much on gathering information on law-abiding citizens and too little on people who are actually tied to terrorism. Here are a few highlights:

Sen. Ted Cruz Q&A in Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing 

on Government Surveillance Programs: 

"I think a great many Americans are concerned about the current state of NSA surveillance. I have concerns on two fronts: I am concerned on the one hand that the federal government has not been effective enough monitoring and surveilling bad guys. That we have not succeeded in preventing what should have been preventable terrorist attacks. And that the same time I am concerned that the sweep of the surveillance has been far too broad with respect to law-abiding citizens. And I think a great many Americans would prefer to see that reversed.
"Am I understanding correctly the conclusions that the commissions received, that in your judgment the bulk metadata program has not to date prevented any specific terrorist attack? Is that an accurate understanding?"
Speaking with Shannon Bream on America's News HQ

On Sunday, Sen. Cruz spoke with Shannon Bream about President Obama’s lawlessness. People of all political persuasions should be concerned by the current administration’s disregard for the law, Sen. Cruz said.
Israel has lost a great warrior and the United States has lost a great friend
This week, Sen. Cruz reacted to news of former Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's passing:
"The story of Ariel Sharon’s life was very much the story of the state of Israel from his birth in Kfar Malal twenty years before Israel was established, to fighting in the Six Days war of 1967, to his service as Prime Minister from 2001-06. He experienced enormous struggle and adversity, but persevered in the defense of the nation he loved. Israel has lost a great warrior and the United States has lost a great friend. May he rest in peace."
