I'm just trying to change the world, one sequin at a time." So spoke one of today’s popular entertainers. She has had a number of more controversial quotes, however. She also said:
"I want women -- and men -- to feel empowered by a deeper and more psychotic part of themselves. The part they're always trying desperately to hide. I want that to become something that they cherish.
"I'm telling you a lie in a vicious effort that you will repeat my lie over and over until it becomes true"
When she was called by one of her interviewers, “The Billy Graham of pop,” she said that she wants to “free (her fans) of their fears and make them feel . . . that they can create their own space in the world. I am teaching people to worship themselves.”
She further said, “I’ve been trained to love my darkness . . . I don’t want 5 dollars in your pocket, I want your soul.”
These are all quotes of Lady Gaga. She make think she’s innovative, but, quite honestly, her heart only reflects the tired mantra of another public figure who sought to teach rebellion. It was Satan who said, “I will be like the Most High.” It was Satan who began this whole practice of teaching people to “worship themselves.” And it is Satan who continues to tempt you and me to trade our God-focus for self-worship.
