Super Bowl LVI was held on February 13th, 2022 between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals. The Rams won by 3 points (23-20). But that’s not what I’m going to talk about in this article. I wish to discuss the Super Bowl Halftime Show which is held after the 2nd quarter ends.
The halftime show featured various well-known rappers such as Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and 50 Cent. This music was an abomination! It represented a direct affront to Biblical values.
As part of a medley of famous rap songs the performers sang, one was the infamous gangsta (gangster) rap song “F**K The Police”, which derides the police and calls for their murder. This represents the zenith of a 10-year trend in the popular culture we’ve seen with the rise of BLM and CRT and anti-police sentiment in America. This music is a direct challenge to the God-given authority of the state to wield the sword. It is this function of police, keeping law and order in society, that is being challenged.
Further, the music performed glorifies criminality, incites people to acts of violence, and such music normalizes and encourages misogyny towards women. It reduces women to mere sex objects who exist solely for the gratification of men.
The Super Bowl LVI halftime show was seen by an estimated 208 million viewers! Millions of children and teenagers watched it with their families. It is shameful to see how pervasive and deep-seated wickedness has become in America. The American values we once held only a few generations ago of Christianity, godliness, no profane speech, modesty, respect for authority, and sexual morality have been replaced with profanity, immodesty, lack of respect for authority, sexual immorality, ungodliness, and pagan or atheist forms of belief.
I will never watch another Super Bowl and I encourage all Christians to also boycott it. The only thing the NFL seems to care about is money.
This halftime show represented just another marker in the steady decline of the West into degeneracy. The total depravity of the performers and listeners was on display.
If you like rap music, I recommend Reformed rappers, such as Shai Linne. Here is one of his songs:
