I remember the day I heard an interview about the song, With You I'm Born Again by Billy Preston and Cerita. I'm assuming it was Cerita talking, and she said that she was looking for her most transcendent experience to describe the sexual encounter in the song. She chose a transcendent experience alright, her conversion to Christ, and in that act gave God's glory to men. At the time there was no social media, no blogosphere, and I was probably very late in hearing the story, so I felt unable to even make a comment about this travesty. And how many other Christians joined me in my apathy? So when Christina Aguilera says she's worshiping a singer we probably would've thought the singer was a fool if she had is said, 'I'm sorry but the only one deserving of worship is God.' And we would probably have criticized her if she had left the show over it. I call myself a Christian and I'm trying to love God to the best of my ability, which means I should be hurt by what hurts God. I am hurt by this. And this time I'm in a position to say something about it. You may see it differently and that's between you and God, but if I don't say something, that's between me and God.
I am offended that we worship people. I am offended when women are called goddesses and men are called gods. I am offended by all the swearing in movies, on TV, on the Internet and in my office. And I am especially saddened every time these attitudes are found in me. I want God’s glory to be given to God, first by me, then by everyone else, because (according to the Bible) it is the only way our country will ever be great again.
