New Zealand pop star Lorde, singer of such hits as “Royals” and “Green Light” on the secular charts, recently admitted in an interview that “I am basically a witch.” The 20-yr-old said she feels comfortable around ghosts and spirits. Lorde even believes the spirit of the late David Bowie is connected to her, is watching over her, and even inspired her upcoming album “Melodrama.”
Although the singer makes her witchcraft sound as if it’s something unique, it isn’t. At least not in the pop world. Witchcraft is a normal part of the secular music scene. Who can forget the witchcraft ritual Katy Perry performed at the 2014 Grammy Awards? Lorde is just another example of how chart toppers, for the most part, reach celebrity status by selling out to Satan in some way.
In the past, it was the norm for celebrity singers into witchcraft to hide that fact in their lyrics, album cover artwork, liner notes, and in the backmasking of their songs. Now they express it not only in the lyrics and backmasking, but boast about it openly to promote it to impressionable young minds who follow them. Such is the way of the world. Nevertheless, in the end, Lorde, Katy Perry, and all the others will find that the false religion that helped them gain the world only led them to lose something much more important–their own soul–if they don’t repent. The late Chris Cornell of Soundgarden is just the latest example.
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. 1 Samuel 15:23
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, 20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred… 21 …of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5
