Should Pentatonix be Promoted by Christians?

My social media feeds have been inundated this past month with videos of Christian carols by the band Pentatonix. The first time I saw the Pentatonix video of the carol song “Mary, Did You Know” I was impressed by the vocal talent in the production, but something didn’t seem right. They did not strike me as portraying the image of the average evangelical Christian artist.  It is almost unheard for a Christian artist to be promoted on the world’s stage like this.

Well, thank God for the common grace of Google.

While at least one member of the band publicly claims to be a Christian, two other members are openly gay.  Furthermore the band is active in promoting the LGBTQ agenda.  All this at the same time as taking advantage of the evangelical Christian market which may be their top target in selling albums.

But, hey, it’s a free country and anyone can do what they want as long as they do not break the law and/or hurt others, as the old progressive principle holds. Delight in Truth does not have a problem with Pentatonix and their rebellion against the moral code of Scripture, as much as with the Evangelical crowd which claims to be under the authority of Scripture and who loves Pentatonix.

Dear Christians, if you find the Word of God as inspired and authoritative, please stop buying, promoting, liking, posting, and applauding these Pentatonix videos. Would you listen daily to an openly gay pastor who promotes the LGBTQ lifestyle and preaches “really good?” If no, then why promote Pentatonix?

The false gospel of acceptance has made its way into the church via music and artistic expression, and now we are reaping the consequences. Scripture is being challenged and disregarded on the issue of sexual morality, and especially homosexuality.  Large churches like the Presbyterian Church USA and Evangelical Lutheran Church have blown up over the issue, and the Anglican Church (80 million members) is next.

As time goes by, more and more churches will concede and accept into membership and even ordain those who identify with and practice the LGBTQ lifestyle in open rebellion to Scripture.  On the other hand it has to be this way. As we get closer to the Second Coming of Christ the warning given by apostle Peter stands true: “that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires.”

We must stand true to Scripture. We must stand with those who hold it as authoritative, and not with those who rebel against.

  1. “If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6.
    I’m a teen and I don’t listen to the Pentatonix band. When I see/ read comments about – “a Christian song, is a Christian song who cares about the authors? It’s about the message. . . ” WHAT? That makes no sense, think about it; what if God was a bad, evil spirit and then He became “holy,” and He started telling these awesome, holy, loving parables; -some people would accept that, that’s like accepting a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    • Would you listen daily to an openly gay pastor who promotes the LGBTQ lifestyle and preaches “really good?” If no, then why promote Pentatonix?

      How about “ Would you listen daily to an openly divorced pastor who promotes the divorces lifestyle and preaches “really good?” If no, then why promote Divorced Pastors?”

      The Bible mentions homosexuality a handful of times, but mentions divorce three times as many. I never see anyone openly discouraging Christians from enjoying the art of divorced people. It’s hypocritical and less about the homosexuality and more about the pointedness of an attack on an easy target. Shame on you.

      • How many times should the Bible say that something is a sin before accepting it as such? Once? Twice? A handful of times?

        And I am not promoting any divorced pastors. BTW, there is a case for biblical divorce that Jesus mentions in Matt 19, if you care to study.

        • It is only hypocrisy if you still indulge in sinful lifestyle that led to divorce second the Bible is clear about adultery being the really only reason for divorce that a letter of divorce be made and that you do not defile yourself with that person again. My wife cheated I followed with divorce and according to Bible I am not held accountable but she is still under adultery but Christ can forgive her sin

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this. They have extraordinary voices that caught my attention but I could sense in my spirit that something was not right and now I know why. The Bible is the manual period. The truth does not change. The Bible says that in the last days deceiving would be so strong that God will have to shorten the days, otherwise everyone would end up being deceived. Be careful with what you listen to.

  3. He answered, “I tell you, if these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” Luke 19:40

    What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice. Philipians 1:15

  4. When Jesus said, love one another, he knew our neighbor would not think like us, or look like us, or feel like us. But he still said to love. Enjoying the God given talents of others, is not wrong. And loving is never wrong.

  5. Pentatonix is not preaching the gospel, or asking us to join the lgbtq movement. They are singing songs we all know and love, and struggling with sin as we all do. While the Bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin, so is divorce, lying, cheating, and so on. The Bible also says that he who is without sin can cast the first stone. So I will enjoy their music which causes me to worship- and let God deal with their sin.

  6. Ok people we got to end this LGBTQ debate. Here’s my thoughts on the matter. While I do enjoy Pentanoix as artists and musicians I don’t agree with their stance on LGBTQ. I grew up in a house where my dad was a minister and my mom is a gospel singer. The way we were taught about people who are LGBTQ is this. We can love the person hate the sin. Translation? We can still enjoy music by people who are openly gay/lesbian/trans while not agreeing with their lifestyle. Would I play Pentanoix is the church? No. But as Christians we can support their music while disagreeing with their lifestyle. Its similar for Christians (such as myself) that listen to Main stream Rock music. we support the band not their lifestyle.

  7. I respectfully disagree with “Would you listen daily to an openly gay pastor who promotes the LGBTQ lifestyle and preaches “really good?” If no, then why promote Pentatonix?”
    I wouldn’t allow this person to teach me as a preacher would, but I would allow them to read scripture and I would listen, because it’s still scripture. Pentatonix is merely singing already established, traditional songs, they aren’t changing the meaning of the songs.

  8. Paul tells us that we should judge our Christian brothers, and not to even eat with those who are engaging in habitual sin. And of all the things that he warns gentiles about, when they were worried about keeping the law, he told them only two things, don’t eat meat you know has been sacrificed to idols and STAY AWAY FROM SEXUAL SIN. I think that is pretty clear, and no one is being judgmental, we should tell these people, in hopes of saving them from hell.. To ignore the sin and just love the sinner will not get them into heaven.

  9. Yes. I agree. With every word you said!! I first heard Pentetonix and something didn’t feel quite right. Then I heard an interview by the lead guy and he was thankful for his boyfriend. Then I noticed one of them looked like a girl…..maybe? I couldn’t tell but then I realized she was probably a girl dressed manly with s man’s hairstyle. So….no more Pentatonix. I was really disappointed. And what about the weird words to Broken Hallelujah? Not.

  10. Carols are not of Christ. Christmas is a pagan holiday founded by lucifer’s camp. Wake up to the god you’ve really been praying to. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Ever noticed the plants that represent christmas, holly berries, mistletoe, and poinsettia are all poisonous? Look up saturnalia, nimrod and the evergreen, roman feast, krampus. Wake up.

    • Interesting though, that truth is in this song. Can’t deny the truth of the song. And Father God made Lucifer put it out there! 🤣Don’t you people see that?! Father God: Winning. Lucifer: 0. Think, people. Think!
