Pastor Keith Hudson, the father of pop music mega-star Katy Perry, recently preached several sermons in which he has shown regret over the sinful and satanic influence of his daughter’s music on the young people of the world. The UK Sun obtained footage of a recent sermon in which Hudson called Perry a “devil child” and showed footage of her negative influence, exposing the sinful rebellion her music promotes.
“They ask how can I preach if I produce a girl who sang about kissing another girl?” said Hudson of Keith Hudson Ministries, who admitted attending the singer’s sell-out concerts are a source of contention for him and his wife, fellow religious preacher, Mary Hudson. (source).
In our article Katy Perry’s “E.T.” Lyrics And Video — Alien Deception Strikes Again, Beginning and End analyzed the satanic message behind Perry’s hit song E.T. in which she makes references to having intimate relations with a being who “could be the devil.” The song was just one example of the satanic and sinful spirit of Perry’s music. After starting her career as a contemporary Christian artist under her real name, Katy Hudson, Perry then switched to pop music and its lure of fame, wealth and media power. Perry’s initial hit song, I Kissed A Girl was an ode to lesbian experimentation that became a smash hit among the teen and pre-teen set. For a woman who claims to be Christian to make a song that is so blatantly promoting sin is a sign of a person who does not fear God nor have any concern for his judgments. And few things can blind a person more from seeing God’s ways than the lure of money.
The Bible says: “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (1 Timothy 6:9-10).
Perry clearly erred from the faith by promoting homosexuality to the world and in particular children. As the years went on, Perry rose to multi-platinum status, becoming one of the most successful singers of all-time. All the while her music continued to celebrate sexual promiscuity and rebellion against authority. Perry also became renowned for wearing skimpy outfits and even appearing in naked in a video. Rather than sharing her “Christian upbringing” with the world, she instead chose to lead it into more sinful rebellion against The Lord. Her are some lyrics from her hit song: “Teenage Dream”:
No regrets, just love
We can dance until we die
You and I, we’ll be young forever
You make me
Feel like I’m living a
The way you turn me on
I can’t sleep
Let’s run away and
Don’t ever look back
Don’t ever look back
I’ma get your heart racing
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight
Let you put your hands on me
In my skin-tight jeans
Be your teenage dream tonight (source).
A song clearly targeted at teenagers and children, Perry sings of turning guys on and sexual sin. And in it she preaches a message of “no regrets” – emphasizing that there is no need for repentance or feeling bad about one’s behavior. The Bible says of sex outside of marriage:
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. — 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
Note that Scripture lists fornication, which is sex outside of marriage, first. Sexual lust is one of the strongest forces of temptation society faces. Having celebrities sing about it in their music while dressing in provocative fashion only further engrained it in the mind of the audience. This is why the Bible says: ”flee fornication.” But thanks to stars like Perry, pop culture has made fleeing harder than ever as entertainers happily promote sexual sin in exchange for the promises of wealth.
As we noticed before, Perry even referenced selling her soul to the devil in an interview:
Perhaps this is why Pastor Hudson now feels regret over his daughter’s career:
“I was at a concert of Katy’s where there were 20,000. I’m watching this generation, and they were going at it. It was almost like church,” Keith said. “I stood there and wept and kept on weeping and weeping. They’re loving and worshipping the wrong thing.” (source).
Hudson and his wife have run Keith Hudson Ministries for 32 years. According to their Statement of Faith they preach a a brand of charismatic Christianity with a host of unbiblical practices like speaking in tongues (intelligible, gibberish tongues, not the speaking of actual foreign languages as done in the Bible), faith healing, prophecy and “working miracles.” When a pastor takes the position that he is a “modern day prophet” he is proclaiming to receive new revelations from God that are not in the Bible. This opens the door for all sorts of heretical beliefs and activities because the pastor can simply claim, “God just told me to say this.” Of course Scripture makes it clear that there are no more prophets today:
“God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” – Hebrews 1:1-2.
Prior to the birth of Jesus Christ on Earth, God chose prophets to take His Word to the world. But today God speaks to us through Jesus Christ, The Word of God. So the Bible contains the full revelation from The Lord. Hudson’s doctrine adds to this with what is often called “fresh revelation.” So Perry with a foundation that was part Biblical, part man-made doctrine.
This would not be the first time a celebrity dad has voiced concern about the satanic influence over their child. Billy Ray Cyrus, father of Disney Channel TV star and singer Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, conducted an interview in which he said his family was under attack by Satan and blamed his daughter’s handlers for leading her career down a sinful path.
Pray for Hudson to continue to take a stand against the career path of his daughter and to turn to Biblical Christianity and repentance. And pray for Perry and her Christian walk, or for her salvation if she is unsaved. Lord willing, hearing from the singer’s own parents may wake up parents all over the world to start exerting their own spiritual leadership in their homes to lead their children to know God instead of being so familiar with Satan’s way and the music and entertainment of his minions.
