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.

      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.

  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.
