Saddleback’s Newest Worship Artist
Yesterday we met Saddleback Church’s newest worship artist. Surprisingly, that person was Miley Cyrus. They have been performing The Climb for worship, a song with no connection to Christ, faith, or worship, and the loosest connection to music.
Saddleback’s Miley is in the news today for her latest video Who Owns My Heart? Anyone with any familiarity of the crap machine out of Nashville called Contemporary Christian Music–which ironically fails on all three of those descriptions–could write a Christianese song in five minutes with that title. Have at ‘er in the comments if you feel so inclined.
Miley’s new song begins, “Creation shows me what to do…” Praise the Lord we have a new song from a secular artist about creation! Then again maybe not:
If you hate yourself today then listen to the entirety of this song:
As the father of a teenage girl there’s some pretty easy targets in this video of a seventeen year old girl (and whether she likes it or not, with her publicity she is a role model) portraying herself this way. I’ll let that go. I trust those that visit this site have the mental capacity and ethical reasoning for such sentiments to be obvious.
However, I will point out one time before hopefully never mentioning Miley Cyrus ever again in the history of my blog: perhaps, “performing” her songs as “worship” might be a small adventure in missing the point.
