Taylor Swift here in this two lines demonstrates she knows the consequences of sin. THE STAKES ARE HIGH. But what is at stake? Morality. Obedience. Submission. God gave Israel high stakes and rough waters too. (1 Kings 9:6-9But if ye shall at all turn from following me, ye or your children, and will not keep my commandments and my statutes which I have set before you, but go and serve other gods, and worship them: Then will I cut off Israel out of the land which I have given them; and this house, which I have hallowed for my name, will I cast out of my sight; and Israel shall be a proverb and a byword among all people: And at this house, which is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house? And they shall answer, Because they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil. )
You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don’t care, cause right now you’re mine
Seriously, what kind of nonsense is she talking about? Its tough just to understand these words.The only fact is, she doesn’t care, she’s got a boy, and that’s all that matters.
And it’s not theirs to speculate
Oh is it? But we just saw that God’s Word commands us to judge righteous judgment.
If it’s wrong and your hands are tough but they are where mine belong and
Its always “I know its wrong…but.” (Ecclesiastes 7:29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright;BUT they have sought out many inventions. ) Taylor Swift and many of our youth are seeking other inventions.
I’ll fight their doubt and give you faith with this song for you
Who exactly is she fighting? God’s Word says, 2 Timothy 2:25 In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; Who she’s opposing? Herself. Sin destroys. I sure pity her, and many of the youths who have fallen into the same trap.
Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
I know, guys. She’s just describing the boyfriend that she’s got. I don’t care what his name is. But he’s not her boyfriend anymore. Where’s her LOVE?
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
Wow. Snide remarks from her father about his tatoos will be ignored…. God’s Word has more ‘snide remarks’ : (Leviticus 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, NOR PRINT ANY MARKS UPON YOU: I am the LORD.) I guess her father’s sound advice turns out to be ‘snide remarks.’ Methinks most youth will say what I am writing is ‘snide remarks.’
Cause my heart is yours
Who does her heart belong to? (Proverbs 23:26 My son, give me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe my ways.) It applies to daughters too.
Teenagers, I am not trying to be a spoilsport. I am a teenager myself, a 16 year old who wants to have fun too. But I am a Christian first. And I can’t have fun outside of God’s boundaries. As of now, I am living the abundant life. I have my struggles, as do you. But I have Christ, my heart is His. It belongs to no one else. If you listen to this music I plead with you to seriously consider the error of your ways. It is time to repent dear youth. I love you in the Lord. There are many other ways to enjoy life. Taylor Swift’s music, can I say, is the music from hell. It smells of rebellion, and every foul and evil thing. This is only an analysis of the lyrics. I haven’t even got into the music, which is a separate message. I beg of you to repent, if the following paragraph below is your response, God help you. I will pray and hope God will show you the error of your ways.
Seems like there’s always someone who disapproves
They’ll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury’s out, but my choice is you
So don’t you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high
The water’s rough
But this love is ours
Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.
I DID NOT WATCH TAYLOR SWIFT PERFORM OR HEAR HER ALBUMS. I MERELY DID A CRITIQUE OF HER LYRICS WHICH ARE SO FREELY AVAILABLE.
