This needs to really be analyzed. Why do you think that she changed? This isn’t the girl with the long brown hair from tv shows in the not so distant past. I’m not saying those shows were right, but I am pointing out a change. She has shaved her head, she shows us her tongue and she does things with her body that are really shameful . . . and the young people who saw her before the twerk, are the same ones who see her after the twerk . . . and because they are young and impressionable, they want the twerk, the tongue, the hair too.
So when you look at this, you have to ask yourself, is this of God or is this not of God. Well, how do you know? Anything that is of God will line up with the Word of God and can be backed up by the Word of God. Let’s look at some scripture in Colossians.
King James Version (KJV)
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:
7 In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
If you look at verse 1 here it says if you are risen with Christ. This means if you are saved, which means you have accepted Jesus as your personal saviour. (Romans 10:9-10) These are the things that you are supposed to put off. Look at this closely. Getting saved doesn’t make these things go away. YOU have to decide to walk in the Word. Now I don’t know if Miley professes Christianity, but the things I saw her doing in a recent video with other celebrities is straight up from the enemy’s court. Youtube her name and twerking and you can see for yourself.
Look down at verse 5 which teaches us to be in control of our own bodies – and then there are listed several things including uncleanness and covetousness. Since when did sticking your tongue out at someone become clean? What about the covetousness issue? I believe that this change in Miley is to get attention. She is seeking something and that something is a closer relationship with God, but she has fallen for the counterfeit and is seeking acceptance among her audience . . . she is trying to rebrand herself obviously because she thought the old brand had lost its effectiveness. What’s worse is now she becomes a role model for my daughters and your daughters who think it is now cool to twerk and stick their tongues out. That’s why you have to train your children up in the Word of God so that when they see things that are not the Word they will know to cast them down (2 Corinthians 10:5) and not embrace them as their reality.
Let’s keep going here. Who are the children of disobedience? They are the children of the devil . . . whom everyone is born as because of Adam’s sin in the Garden of Eden. The devil has blinded the eyes of them so that they can’t see the light of Christ. (2 Corinthians 4:4) That is why Miley does what she does. She is blind to the light, love and freedom of Christ. She does not know that “in Christ” she is accepted, loved and honored just as she is. She doesn’t have to try to be someone else or put on the “world’s standard” to be accepted.
