Miley Cyrus, the ex Disney Child star had her ‘coming out’ party as an adult at the Video Music Awards recently. If you didn’t see it, it was raunchy, degrading, dare I say disgusting? This was no longer the Miley Cyrus who started out as the innocent Hannah Montana the child star.
Miley came from some form of “Christian” childhood. At one point, she was vocal about her faith in Jesus Christ but recently she tweeted the following:
“You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded … So forget Jesus. Stars died so you could live.”
Miley’s transformation has bothered me. She is not an alien to Christianity. Miley is another celebrity who has gone the opposite direction of past teaching. The list is long of celebrities like Madonna, Katy Perry, etc. who came from a Christian background and ended up somewhere entirely different. We do not need to condemn Miley Cyrus, she needs mercy not judgment.
Do People Know Who Jesus Is?
For somebody to tweet “So Forget Jesus“ tells me clearly she never knew Jesus. So what was she doing in church? What was she taught about Jesus? Jesus loves people passionately and when you truly meet Him you are forever changed.
Jesus is more than a nice Sunday school story.
Jesus is more than a list of do’s and dont’s.
Jesus is more than someone to help promote our morality and politics.
Jesus is more than good deeds and serving the poor.
Jesus is more than missions trips, sermons, music, and church activities.
Let me tell you about Him
Jesus was a carpenter rabbi from Nazareth who changed the world. Calendars and dated documents bear silent witness to His birth. From rooftops, necklaces, and earrings, the sign of the cross bears witness to His death. The Western world-view, which provided the most free societies in history were rooted in Judeo-Christian values.
How can someone tweet “So Forget Jesus” when you met a Jesus like this?
I believe a Church revolution is coming where an emphasis on knowing and hearing Jesus will bring a revolution in the world.
