Skip to comments.Former CCM Singer Turned Secular Pop Star Katy Perry: ĎI Donít Believe in Heaven or Hellí
Posted on 12/30/2013 7:02:07 AM PST by Nachum
In a recent interview with Marie Claire Magazine, pop star Katy Perry, a former contemporary Christian artist, announced that she no longer believes in Heaven or Hell nor professes to be a Christian.
I dont believe in a Heaven or a Hell, or an old man sitting on a throne, she advised the magazine. I believe in a higher power bigger than me because that keeps me accountable. Accountability is rare to find, especially with people like myself, because nobody wants to tell you something you dont want to hear.
Im not Buddhist, Im not Hindu, Im not Christian, but I still feel like I have a deep connection with God, Perry continued. I pray all the timefor self-control, for humility. Theres a lot of gratitude in it. Just saying thank you sometimes is better than asking for things.
As previously reported, Perry, an evangelical ministers daughter, was raised in California, and was brought up to avoid secular music and television programs. She began singing as a Contemporary Christian artist at age 15, and released her first national album in 2001. In an interview with CCM (Contemporary Christian Music Magazine), she stated that one her musical influences was Keith Green, who was known to be bold in his lyrical witness for Christ.

just wait til she is in a living hell here on earth
Katie, your parents must be so proud...........NOT
She’s saying she believes in God, but not the Heaven and Hell notions imported from the Norse religions in the Middle Ages
And this is news because???
I’m so thankful that Katy finally weighed in on this. I can now die a happy man.
ACcountable for what? If you get to make up your moral rules as you go along what is there to account for?
I don’t believe in an old man sitting on a throne because it’s really all about me, me, me.
She made a deal with hell. She lies.
If there is no heaven (reward) or hell (punishment),
just what does this “accountability from a higher power” look like?
Lower record sales?
Wishy washy. Is she related to Boehner?
Why do people like this think we care what she does or does not believe?
Yeah, it must be some earthly, yet supernatural, “accountability”...
Yep. It's like she's saying I don't believe in accountability but I strongly believe in accountability.
Why is it not news? Are matters of faith unimportant?
I have a simple question for the “SBNR” liberals -
on what authority do you base your beliefs?
If you have no such authority outside of yourself, then you’re Wile E Coyote “standing” in mid-air with a little sign that says “help!”.
No rules for this thread?
My kids are very cute and it’s been suggested on more than one occasion that we try to get them into show biz. I’ve always politely declined. I’ve heard the casting couch knows no minimum age, if you know what I mean. There is a reason that these people are messed up.
We know KP. The only thing your worship are your boobs.
You will in the end. Also, from your debauched activities, it doesn’t look like anyone is holding you accountable... yet.
“Perry, an evangelical ministers daughter, was raised in California, and was brought up to avoid secular music and television programs. She began singing as a Contemporary Christian artist at age 15, and released her first national album in 20”
So everything you have accomplished with the benefit of your Family and Faith is now to be diminished and discarded because you have found fame and fortune as a Pop Star.
I wonder how well you would have done in a Broken Godless home? Chances are you would not be so smug and arrogant and dismissive.
You would probably be a waitress in some dive bar with a couple kids by different fathers. Maybe you would sing a karaoke tune and dream about what might have been if you had come from a Real Family.
If they don't, reality doesn't really care.
She has appeared before The Judges of Sodom(tm), and has been instructed in the rules of Higher Entertainment.
All who wish to Be, must conform to orthodoxy.
Without heaven & hell, what “accountability” is there? Accountability implies consequences.
A confused and likely lonely young woman. Jesus’ words to the woman at the well would be for her; he has water to drink which would take away her thirst.
“I don’t want anyone using their standards to judge me in this life, so, I’ll just make up my own rules and tell people I’m “accountable” to them.”
“That way I can pretend there are no consequences for my behavior.”
“Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be the Whole of the Law.”
She prays at the altar of Obama.
Quote from her dad in the article:
I love my daughter and I will always love her. Stop being judgmental and critical, Keith Hudson stated. God has given us a platform to go in and meet peopleand they like us because we are cool. We are not threatening.
When it comes to her theology, philosophy, and intellect, Katy Perry has a nice body.
Just go on now, honey - keep believing in nothing but your boobs and your rock star music. Someday, though, they’ll be old and saggy and your voice will be old and crackly .. .
Then what are you gonna do?
Katy’s religious views are incoherent, ignorant, shallow, unconsidered, and unfounded. She would fit in just fine at FR.
She’s an airhead,
stungun and mace, Kharmann Ghia plates say “Lost in Space”
And she’s an airhead,
thousands in trust, cusp Aquarius, get serious
And she’s an airhead,
tinted contacts don’t change the fact that black is black
She’s an airhead,
while I’m impressed with the size of that chest,
she’s not an intellectual giant
Phew. That was close. Thanks.
You nailed it.
Busting out the Thomas Dolby lyrics! Nice reference!
She’s cute. Too bad she’s as dumb as a stump.
One of the worst things you can allow to happen for your children is to start them on a career of fame and adulation.
If they excel in these areas, ensure that they are grounded in LIFE and understand that fame & adulation and the crowds that are attracted by them are very, very dangerous.
Be excellent in all that you do, but in the end, it is just games, singing & dancing & play acting.
“If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;...
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings - nor lose the common touch,...
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And - which is more - you’ll be a Man, my son!”
Kipling - “If”
God, in His love & mercy for Ms. Perry, may allow her to make a big crash in order that she may come to her senses.
I hope she can. The road she's on is lined and paved with the fallen. There but for the Grace of God...
WOW!!!!! Katy Perry’s theological opinions rank right up there! My faith it trembling now!
Surely you believe in Hell. Weren’t you married to that assclown Russel Brand?
Not caring for others speaks volumes - to God - about those that don't care.
Do you speak from experience, Boss Bird?
Why did you leave out the end of my quote?
I said “why do people like this think we care
WHAT THEY DO OR DO NOT BELIEVE?”
Wow, such incredible theological and spiritual insight........what a woman, what fan wouldn't be enthralled with her knowledge of all things after seeing her incredible perceptions on life such as this?
To quote a Christian Contemporary singer. “What if you’re wrong.”
