Ariana Grande may not know that according to the Old Testament God created the woman Eve from the rib of Adam in order for them to “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that crawls upon the earth.”
This is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
Genesis 1:26-27 reads that on the Sixth Day:
26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness, to rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, and over all the earth itself and every creature that crawls upon it.” 27 So God created man in His own image…
Genesis 1:22-24 reads:
22 Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. 23 The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” 24 That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.
It was Eve who first succumbed to Satan and ate of the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. It was Eve who convinced Adam to defy God’s command not to eat the apple. Because of this Adam and Eve were driven out of paradise to endure pain, suffering and death.
It appears the Holy Bible isn’t really God’s word for pop singer Ariana Grande.
In a Movie Guide column titled “New Ariana Grande Song States ‘God Is A Woman’” contributing writer Tess Farrand writes:
You may know Ariana Grande for popular songs, “Dangerous Woman, “Break Free,” “FOCUS,” or for her countless appearances on SNL. Her single, “God is A Woman” deserves EXTREME caution.
The single “God Is A Woman,” is making headlines across the country. Within two weeks of its release, the song has already streamed 70 million times on Spotify, and sadly, will only go up from there.
Part of suggestive lyrics read, “You love it how I touch you. My one, when all is said and done, you believe God is a woman….” In traditional pop-music fashion, the song is catchy and fans and radios listeners across the country are already singing it, but, there are some obvious issues with Grande’s statement that God is a woman.
Grande is on the cover of August’s ELLE Magazine with a headline reading the same as her song, “GOD IS A WOMAN,” in all caps. As Grande’s song makes its way through the pop culture conversation, it is important that we be mindful it preaches false doctrine.
In her music video, Grande appears nude with only minor suggestive “artistic” coverings. Grande’s background dancers also appear nude with strategically placed soap suds. The video, which was released mid-July takes place in space as Grande straddles planet Earth while moving the clouds with her own hand. Additionally, she appears in the flame of a lit candle, floating in a multi-colored lake barely covering any of her private parts.
At one point, a larger-than-life Grande watches as men, who appear beneath her, shout profanities at her as she brushes them off. She also appears pregnant in a portion of the video, communicating the power of child-bearing “mother earth….”
