Descent Into Darkness: Katy Perry Renounces The Christian Faith

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


“For the love of money is the root of all evil” – 1 Timothy 6:10.

“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 Job for 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 End detailed 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.

Katy Perry’s album, using her real name, when she was a Christian artist.

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.

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

Katy Perry here with her good friend Rihanna, one of the biggest 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 be forgiveness 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.

      She’s growing & maturing! Good for her! Testing the spirits…she’s commanded to do this, so hmmmm…shut up?

      • Anonymous

        I don’t think she is “maturing”. Her songs really have little to do with “maturing”. And testing the spirits is something that those who are strong in Christ are to do. You know….the saints. She hardly qualifies as a saint. Those who are not strong in Christ will more than likely get seduced by the familiar spirits.

      Go into your inner most room….
      Enter into the temple made without hands so tell me what is the temple made without hands?
      That is the bible.
      Who and not to mention the kingdom of heaven is within you…….
      Meditation is simply going into ones self.
      The sides of your head is where your temples are.
      So the only way to enter into that is through meditation.
      There are many people who profess to be Christian
      that are lying greedy and cheats, and are extremely unforgiving.
      The bible even has a story that says if you cannot forgive how can you expect
      forgiveness…

        “The bible even has a story that says if you cannot forgive how can you expect

        What you mean exactly like the biblical deity, who needs to butcher his own son as a blood sacrifice before it can forgive peoples piffling misnomers?

        :lol:

      ““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.”

      Good advice. Shame America does the complete opposite by electing religious politicians. You cannot serve two masters. They have their own agenda, their religion, not the interests of the whole. Americans, the descendants of people who fled their home countries from religious persecution should understand that perfectly,.. shame they ignore their own history. They never learn by their mistakes.

      :lol:

      Way to go Katy!

      Congrats on trading up to a higher and better form of mind control.

      Well, at least you’re free from the wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing known as christianity, which is anything but, so I suppose your change is positive on at least one level.

      Too bad all the mainstream religions on this planet are specifically crafted to deprive you of your power and make you a perfect little sycophant, and that is being generous in their description.

      Perhaps more need to wake up and understand their own true spiritual nature and that all religions are a control vector to keep the herd in check, nothing more — including the so-called “New Age.”

      And so it goes.

      The vast majority of Christians merely lose their souls and cease to exist. God is very specific though about those who lead people away from Him and into religious behavior. They will achieve immortality, though their eternal spirit will dwell in a place of darkness and despair.

      • Neo

        No such thing as ‘ceasing to exist’, it’s not in the bible. We are all made immortal from the get-go, there’s no ‘achieving immortality’.

      • Pix

        What you mean ‘dwell in a place of darkness and despair’ like any eternal existence wouldn’t be a place of despair? I’d give myself a thousand or so years, then I’d be begging for oblivion… bored to death, with no death in sight, if that is not despairing I don’t know what is. Any eternal existence, no matter the conditions, would become a hell sooner or later.

        :lol:

        • Saber

          Do you have any proof… or is this just another one of your opinions? How do you know anything at all about what any eternal life would be like? Are you just projecting this opinion from the perspective of being stuck in one particular geographic location on this globe, or from a spiritual perspective?
          who says time even exists as we know it on other plains of existence or dimensions? Your thoughts on eternal life seem to be rather one dimensional.

        • Mayhem

          Do you reckon 1,000 years would be enough, do you, Pix? Apparently i only use 10% of the brain i was given. I reckon it’d take just about forever to get the other 90% of it working properly. There’s a lot of stupid to fix but you already know that.

    • WTX

      Quote Katy Perry.
      “but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God”

      She is actually a Muslim, but she still don’t know that. Only in Islam there is direct connection with God without any intermediates.

      http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1343954/100-000-Islam-converts-living-UK-White-women-keen-embrace-Muslim-faith.html

      Convert: Lauren Booth, the sister-in-law of former Prime Minister Tony Blair, attracted a lot of publicity when she announced she had adopted the Islamic faith last year

      Fiyaz Mughal, director of Faith Matters, said: ‘Conversion to Islam has been stigmatised by the media and wrongly associated with extremist ideologies and discriminatory cultural practices.’

      New Occult Terrorizm is not Islam at all.

      It was invented by the Cabal.

      • Mayhem

        @WTX who says…

        “Only in Islam there is direct connection with God without any intermediates.”

        … Are you reading The Word? Maybe you missed this bit…

        MATTHEW 6:9-15 (the Lords prayer)

        … Who is it that we are to address? It is Father, YHWH, Creator. We do this in the Name of His Son, Yehoshua. That is not an intermediary; you are confusing the Way to Salvation, John 14:6, and it’s poor form.

    • Proudliberal

      Good for her ! One loess Christian is always an improvement ! I don’t believe in the New Age any more than I believe in Christianity, but at least New Agers aren’t narrow-minded, intolerant. self-righteous jerks who think that unless you’re a born again Bible-believing evangelical Christian
      your doomed to eternal hellfire and who think they have the right to stick their slimy little noses into other people’s bedrooms and judge them ,unlike evangelical Christians .
      And I’ve never heard of a New Ager who was bigoted toward gay people .

      • Mayhem

        Wah wah, leave all the queers alone, they don’t like being reminded what YHWH thinks of their abominable practices.

        1 Corinthians 6:9 “abusers of themselves with mankind” G733 “arsenokoitas”
        1 Timothy 1:10 “defile themselves with mankind” G733 “arsenokoitas”

        Am i a bigot? Perhaps but where is my fear, loathing and disgust? I’m simply intolerant as i am commanded to be.

    • whyohwhyohspellsyoyo

      You Christians are a judgmental lot aren’t you, your not too far removed from Muslims. Worry about yourself, if you convert more, the queue to get in to heaven will be longer when hey zuse comes to collect you all from damnation. Think about it, your slowing your entry up, let us rot in hell.

    • YellowRoseTx51

      Well, it is true that the satanic cults have the arts industry by the short hairs. They own it.
      But at least her rhetoric is that she is not adhering to a religion. Not that she disbelieves in God.
      However, the satanic groups have said that before too. Their god is Satan.
      We’ll have to wait and see about Perry.

    • Big Craig

      ‘Greatest singers of all time’???????

      I actually vomited a little reading that.

      good grief no wonder we are in such a pickle.

    • Logicgirl

      My bible says God is the only judge. “Judge not lest thou be judged”. God knows everyone’s heart and HE will judge them. God looks upon the heart, and we don’t know other peoples hearts. So unless you are God, stop passing judgement. Find something more positive to do with the gift of life God gave you.
