Lately there’s been much speculation about whether or not I’ve ‘sold my soul to the devil’—all because I begin my concerts by shouting, “I’ve sold my soul to the devil!” C’mon guys, I’m just kidding. But even if I did sell it—for fame, money, and sex—at least I got more out of the deal than you did.
“I didn’t make any deal,” you say?
Like you, I grew up in church. Will I ever come back to God? I dunno man. Right now, I’m practically God myself! And all of you lemmings have only supported that notion. Excuse my ego, but my songs are played everywhere… all of the clubs, all of the gyms, even churches re-mix ‘sanctified’ versions!
Your desire for my music is a consuming fire--consuming your thoughts, emotions, and ultimately, actions.
My music is like porn for your ears. And what porn addict doesn’t want to try the things he/she watches? (If only internally.) Consider this: your desire for sex is natural, but porn is your fantasy. Likewise, your desire for a good life is natural, but my music is an escape—the pleasure, the partying, the luxurious living--it’s your fantasy.
Is there a single listener who wouldn’t want to live my life? (If only internally.)
“I don’t listen to the words, I just like the beat,” you say? Excellent compromise. Never mind that Lucifer was God’s worship leader--music is his expertise. But you can magically eliminate his spiritual influence by ‘not listening to the words’!
Have I become Lucifer’s puppet? Have you?
Now as far as my soul is concerned, I may have gone too far. You all, on the other hand, have not gone far enough. You Christians act like you desire God, but in truth, you desire the world.
The problem isn’t that you listen to my music, it’s your desire. You see, I desire sex, revelry, and luxury, and I get it all. On the other hand, you (if only internally) desire sex, revelry, and luxury, but can only listen. Why? You’re restricted by your faith! (and finances lol)
Jesus didn’t set you free, He became your captor—you’re captive to His rules! You only obey Him to escape from hell, not because you desire to be disciplined after Him.
I hear your petty debates about whether or not Christians can listen to my music. That’s not the point. If God was truly your desire, you would want more of Him. You wouldn’t have to intentionally cut off my music--it would burn off of you.
The Lord is a consuming fire--consuming your thoughts, emotions, and ultimately, actions.
It scares you, doesn’t it—surrendering all to Christ? Ultimately, you end up surrendering ‘some’ and not ‘all’. I’ve been there before… but I realized surrendering ‘some’ was meaningless. So I drifted from the gray area that you’re in now, to a darker side.
There’s been much speculation about whether or not I’ve ‘sold my soul to the devil’. But even if I did sell it—for fame, money, and sex—at least I got more out of the deal than you did. “I didn’t make any deal,” you say? Compromise is a deal.
“You adulterous people, don't you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.” James 4:4
