"Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"

Wolves in Costume: Amy L. Grant

I realize that a fan of Amy Lee Grant may not be willing to read this article (let alone open it at all) because he/she firmly believes that Grant is a Christian after listening to her music. I have read conversations Christians have had on public forums over other "wolf" articles I've written, and there are some folks who admit they refuse to read these articles because they are so determined to justify a particular pop-idol they love so much. I can completely understand the feeling because I used to listen to Amy Grant (also called "The Queen of Christian Pop") all the time, and I used to really like her music, but we need to learn to love the Lord Jesus Christ enough to put aside our childish personal feelings and look at the facts to gain understanding.

Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.
-1 Corinthians 14:20

We hear Amy Grant sing a song that says: "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path," and that sure sounds good doesn't it? But in an interview with Ladies Home Journal, she says something that ignores "Thy Word."

"It seems to me that people who are most adamantly against premarital sex have experienced some kind of pain in their own lives."
-Amy Grant, Ladies Home Journal, December, 1985, p. 210, quoted by Eugene T. Motes, The Moral Decay of Society: America Under Attack!, iUniverse, 2011, p. 220, ISBN: 97814502778919781450277891

In case you didn't understand, Grant is saying that premarital sex (i.e. fornication) is an acceptable practice, and only those who have problems in their life will think differently. However, that "Word" which she referred to in the song aforementioned says something completely different:

But that we write unto them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood.
-Acts 15:20

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
-2 Timothy 2:22

As members of the Body of Christ, we do not condemn pre-marital fornication on the basis of our personal feelings, or based on traumatic events in our lives. It is a sin clearly condemned in the Word of God, and since the Word of God is our foundation for all matters of faith and practice, we preach against it, but for Amy, the Word of God is not the foundation from which she pulls her thoughts and doctrine.

Amy Grant might hide behind a "Christian" covering, but she doesn't believe what the Word of God teaches, and as a disclaimer, I am NOT saying anyone who listens to Grant is unsaved. I am NOT saying that no one has been born-again saved at a Grant event. I am NOT saying everyone who works with Grant is unsaved. This article is about Amy Grant specifically, so what I'm saying is that there is little to no evidence of Grant's worship of the Christian God of the Bible, and a lot of evidence of Grant's worship of a false idol she calls "jesus."

Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
-Galatians 4:16

The most popular song Amy Grant ever released is called "Baby, Baby," and most Americans are familiar with this song, likely having heard it a number of times on the radio since it was #1 on the charts for over 30 weeks. (And by the way, you don't get to the #1 charts in the American music industry without Satan backing you up.) In the music video, Grant is flirting with random guys, and cuddling up with some handsome random actor.

(Amy Grant's music video of "Baby, Baby")

People Magazine described her video:
"There's saintly Amy cuddling some hunky guy, crooning 'Baby, Baby' into his ear and looking pretty sleek and sinful..."
-People Magazine, July 15, 1991, p. 71, quoted by Eugene T. Motes, The Moral Decay of Society: America Under Attack!, iUniverse, 2011, p. 220, ISBN: 97814502778919781450277891

Whoa, "stop for a minute."
First of all, there is nothing about the Gospel in this song, but the main reason I point out this song is to put emphasis on Grant's focus of using sex to sell her albums. Whether church-goers out there want to believe it or not, there is a sexual lure coming from Amy Grant's music, and according to what she told Rolling Stones Magainze, that's exactly what she wants:
"I'm trying to look sexy to sell a record..."
-Amy Grant, Rolling Stone, quoted by Eugene T. Motes, The Moral Decay of Society: America Under Attack!, iUniverse, 2011, p. 220, ISBN: 97814502778919781450277891

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
-Matthew 5:28

Amy Grant wants men to commit adultery, luring them in so she can turn a profit! Mothers: Is this is the example you want your daughters to learn from? This alone should be enough to keep true born-again Christians sanctified away from Grant.

During a concert, in front of a crowd of 30,000 fans, mostly college and high school students, Amy Grant seeks to comfort any nervous feelings they may have of her being a Christian by opening them up to their sexual feelings:
"We're sitting there, I do my sound check. All these girls are in halter tops, great figures, everybody's wearing nothing... I'm eighteen and I know what they're thinking... I really want to know Jesus and I really want to love him except... my hormones are on ten and I see you all... sitting out there getting chummy and praying together--and we're horny. My feeling is why fake it? I'm not trying to be gross, I'm saying let's be honest about what's coming down."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 30, ISBN: 9780312303907

Why were a bunch of girls dancing around stage in skimpy outfits to begin with? Grant doesn't care what the Word of God says about these things. She is baiting others into their sin, but then trying to talk about Jesus, which is a total contradiction.

She also told People Magazine that her sexy image as "Christian" is good:
"Christians can be sexy. What I'm doing is a good thing."
-Amy Grant, People, July 15, 1991; see also CMJ New Music Monthy, June, 2000, p. 45

In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
-1 Timothy 2:9-10

Many Grant fanatics will rage at me for saying these things, and many already have written me nasty letters and comments over this topic, because they believe she's sharing the Gospel through her music, but we'd better read what she said about it:
"I'm a singer, not a preacher, I'm not looking to convert anybody..."
-Amy Grant, Los Angeles Times, May 4, 1984 p. 2-C

Grant's music is not for the purpose of sharing the Gospel of Jesus to convert the lost sinner, nor is it to preach the truth of the Word of God. It's simply there for entertainment, but it's entertainment that teaches false, new-age doctrine in many areas.

Amy Grant's personal influences may shed some light on this subject, because when asked about her musical influences now and when she was younger, they were not singers and musicians dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ. Grant stated her influences were from Satanic musicians:
"I'm the youngest of four girls, and so I got to borrow all of my older sisters' records. I really cut my teeth on Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin... Elton John. Of course we had a lot of Elvis, a lot of Beatles, Three Dog Night, Jethro Tull--all that was in the house."
-Q&A with Michael W. Smith & Amy Grant, Roseville, CA, retrieved Feb 19, 2015, [youtu.be/LQLgA2JrlSI?t=5m33s]

There is not room enough in this article to share all the specifics of the wicked music and lifestyles of all these musicians, but you can learn about some of them by reading our article: "What Wrong With Christian Rock?" Elvis was well known to have actively studied the philosophies of teachers who brought in the Satanist movement to the 20th century, and so did the Beatles, who considered Satanist Aleister Crowley to be one of their heroic icons.

Michael W. Smith gave very similar answers after Amy Grant, and we've already done an expose on Smith in which he states his open denial of the Lord Jesus Christ on international television. Neither Amy Grant nor Michael W. Smith speak any words of rebuke to the wickedness of these musicians, or warn anyone that they should not be listening to their demonically influenced songs, but rather speak of them fondly.
(Read "Wolves in Costume: Michael W. Smith" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Young musicians in the crowd will be looking up to Grant and Smith, seeking to follow in their footsteps, and will be encouraged to seek after Elvis and Elton John as role models by which they should shape their lives and music to become famous. Grant and Smith both could care less about the influence they have on these people, and they consider not that they do evil when they, as false converts, portray a lie that they believe on the Jesus Christ of the Bible.
(Read "False Converts & Eternal Security" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
-Matthew 16:12

Musicians teach doctrine in the words of their music, which makes it simple for us to read the doctrine they teach, and then compare it to the Word of God, just as the Bereans did.

These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.
-Acts 17:11

The Bereans didn't automatically trust what they were hearing, and we should do the same when it comes to these church-going musicians. Psalm 66 tells us what is considered praise and worship to God:

Make a joyful noise unto God, all ye lands: Sing forth the honour of his name: make his praise glorious. Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee... Say unto God, How terrible art thou in thy works! through the greatness of thy power shall thine enemies submit themselves unto thee. He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood on foot: there did we rejoice in him. He ruleth by his power for ever; his eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.
-Psalm 66:1-7

There is much more if you read Psalm 66, but this gives us a general idea of what we should see in praise and worship to God. Most of the Grant fans who rage at me talk about the song "El Shaddai," but Grant didn't write that song; I'd rather look at a song that Grant wrote, so let's see if you can find those Psalm 66 qualities in her music:

"All I Ever Have To Be" - A. Grant
SELF-Centered
"Take My Life And Let It Be"
GOSPEL-Centered
When the weight of all my dreams
Is resting heavy on my head
And the thoughtful words of health and hope
Have all been nicely said
But I'm still hurting
Wondering if I'll ever be
The one I think I am
Then You gently remind me
That You've made me from the first
And the more I try to be the best
The more I get the worst
And I realize the good in me
Is only there because of who You are
And all I ever have to be
Is what You've made me

Any more or less would be a step
Out of Your plan
As You daily recreate me
Help me always keep in mind
That I only have to do what I can find
And all I ever have to be
All I ever have to be
Is what You've made me
Take my life,
and let it be consecrated, Lord, to Thee.

Take my moments and my days;
let them flow in ceaseless praise.
Take my hands,
and let them move at the impulse of Thy love.
Take my feet,
and let them be swift and beautiful for Thee.
Take my voice,
and let me sing always, only, for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be filled
with messages from Thee.

Take my silver and my gold;
not a mite would I withhold.
Take my intellect,
and use every power as Thou shalt choose.
Take my will, and make it Thine;
it shall be no longer mine.
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
it shall be Thy royal throne.
Take my love, my Lord,
I pour at Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself,
and I will be ever, only, all for Thee.

You can see that the Gospel-centered song is asking the Lord to take our hearts, minds and bodies and give it all to Him for His will and Biblical sanctification, but Grant's self-centered song is getting people to believe that you should be comfortable with who you are in the flesh. Don't try to change anything. Her song focuses the listener on a philosophy that all they have to do is be who they are (i.e. do whatever you feel), and it is automatically pleasing to God, no matter what wicked thing they do.

If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
-Ephesians 4:21-24

Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
-Proverbs 19:27

We are not supposed to be "who we are," but who Christ has made us to be, because we are born-again. Christ has purchased us with a price, and so we should do good works.

Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
-1 Corinthians 6:18

Amy Grant uses her body, not to glorify God, but for filthy lucre (money).

For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake.
-Titus 1:10-11

In her speech to a crowd, and in her songs, Grant is teaching people that God accepts their sin, and that's how they were made. She teaches them to be comfortable with sin, and not to fight the good fight of faith.

But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.
-1 Timothy 6:12

Work hard and fight continually do that which is right by God, not fall over and go to sleep, making up a "god" that's okay with all our wickedness. According to Grant's teaching, doing anymore than just being what you are is not in the plan of God, but that is a lie.

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
-Ephesians 2:10

It takes study, discernment, and discipline to do the good works of God and resist evil, which he ordained before we were saved that we should work to do, and that is not what Amy Grant teaches. The Gospel-centered song prays to the Lord Jesus Christ to take our hands, take our voices, our minds, and our hearts, and shape them into what He chooses; seeking to change us from works of the flesh to works of the spirit.

These works do NOT save us; they are a result of the grace of God in us.

What Version Does Amy Grant Read?

BeliefNet asked Amy Grant:
"REPORTER: What's one of your favorite Bible verses?
GRANT: Well, I'll just tell you one that I read this morning. Galatians 5, the back half of verse 6: "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." And I thought, "The only thing that counts?!'"

-Amy Grant, "We're All in a Process," BeliefNet, retrieved Feb 18, 2015, [beliefnet.com/Entertainment/Music/2004/11/Were-All-In-A-Process.aspx?p=3]

Grant is quoting from an NIV, which is corrupt to the core. It's no wonder she teaches so much false doctrine.
(Read "Why I Use The King James Bible" here at creationliberty.com for more details; more specific corruptions in the NIV can be found in our King James Bible audio teaching part 6.)

Now let's read that verse from a real Bible:

For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love.
-Galatians 5:6

This does NOT say that faith expressing itself through love is the only thing that counts. Context is extremely important here. Paul is explaining to Galatia that it is folly to put emphasis on whether or not someone should be circumcised because that type of thinking leads us back to bondage under the law, and that the faith which worketh by love is what matters IN JESUS CHRIST.

Paul then continues to explain that we should obey the truth of the Word of God (not running around teaching false doctrine and using sex to sell it), and that when they do not obey the truth, it's called "leaven."

Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.
-Galatians 5:7-9

I quoted earlier Jesus Christ warning his disciples to beware of the leaven, which is the false doctrine coming out of the mouths of those who profess themselves to be of God, but they are not. Amy Grant is feigning herself to be of God, and preaches false doctrine, but my Bible says not to be surprised:

For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
-2 Corinthians 11:13-15

They will appear to be kind, gentle, warm people, having qualities of a sheep on the outside, but our Lord God has been gracious to provide His preserved Word for us so that we can clearly see through those who would deceive us with an outer appearance.

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
-John 7:24

Don't be deceived by a pretty smile.

Amy Grant cannot see these things clearly because she does not have the fear of the Lord. She might sing some songs about Jesus Christ, but that doesn't mean she has the fear of the Lord:

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
-Psalm 111:10

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
-Proverbs 1:7

Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips... There is no fear of God before their eyes.
-Romans 3:13-18

I have never heard Amy Grant sing about the fear of the Lord.

Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised.
-Proverbs 31:30

The following is a new song Amy Grant just released recently (2015):
"Welcome Yourself" - A. Grant
SELF-Centered
"Nearer My God to Thee"
GOSPEL-Centered
You give so much,
Juggle it all with a smile,
You tame the tornadoes with style,
How do you keep it all up?
I guess because every day comes to an end,
You get up and do it again,
No matter whatever gets done.
Welcome yourself to the messy moment,
Welcome yourself to be here now,
Open your arms, open your heart,
When some of that love comes back around,
Ready to run when you feel the storm,
Learning to try, learning to fly, learning to fall,
Welcome yourself to it all.
Now it's you stuck in the wake of these words,
So many others have heard,
Wondering how you'll get through,
You just let go,
Into the music that plays,
Dance with the songs as they change,
That's how you'll know what to do.
Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
Even though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to Thee.

Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams Iíd be nearer,
my God to Thee.
There let the way appear, steps unto Heaven;
All that Thou sendest me, in mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
nearer, my God, to Thee.
Or, if on joyful wing cleaving the sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot, upward Iíll fly,
Still all my song shall be,
nearer, my God, to Thee.
There in my Fatherís home, safe and at rest,
There in my Saviorís love, perfectly blest;
Age after age to be,
nearer my God to Thee.

In Amy Grant's song, how should Christians know what to do when the burden of life gets heavy? Just listen to her music and dance around. There is nothing in her song about the Lord Jesus Christ, and the rest He gives to us; instead she sings about lifting up oneself and one's own accomplishments.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
-Matthew 11:28

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves... Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
-2 Timothy 3:1-5

I've listened to Amy Grant's music enough to know that people will object by bringing up that she sang a song called "El Shaddai" (and I accurately predicted people would write me about that) because it has a lot of Gospel in it. That's true, but not only did Amy Grant not write that song, she changed a word in the song from "though the Jews couldn't see," to "the people couldn't see," because she and her produces knew she wouldn't make as much money if she offended listeners with the truth. (i.e. They have to make it "politically correct" so it becomes popular.)

Let's look at a piece Grant wrote herself as a "Christian" song, and see if you can locate anything that points back to the Lord Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross:
"How Mercy Looks From Here" - A. Grant
The water rose today,
The river with the rain
Memories and picture frames
Are floating miles away.
Through the wreckage and the mud,
The ruins after the flood,
She survived at 91, hmm
Some would have given up
Drowning in their tears
But on her wrinkled face
A smile appeared.
When you face your greatest fear
Losing all that you hold near
Open up your eyes my dear,
Oh how mercy looks from here.
I would have given up, drowning in my tears
If it wasn't for your voice all these years
That's when boundless grace appears
Unseen angels hover near
Saints are singing loud and clear
Oh how mercy looks from here.

Where is the Lord Jesus Christ? Where is the blood of the Son of God? His finished work on the cross? His power? His Kingdom? His Saving Grace? Amy Grant writes this song in a vague manner on purpose because she knows, just like most every other "Christian" rock and CCM artist, the more vague your song is, the more money you make from it.

For example, in 2005, in order to boost sales from her Christian audience, Grant released a "Christian" album called "Rock of Ages... Hymns and Faith," which contains thirteen songs, of which only one was written by Amy Grant. The song "Carry You," tells the listener to "call upon my name," but never specifically mentions the Lord Jesus Christ.

In order to get foolish church-goers to spend more money buying her albums, Amy Grant wants to lure them in with her sexy image, and it doesn't bother her one bit because the purpose of her music is to entertain, not to teach the truth. And her entertainment focus is reflected in high esteem the carnal audiences give her through the large amount of wordly awards she has received from wicked sources, including the Grammy's and MTV.

And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
-Luke 16:15

Earlier, we quoted from 1Ti 2:9 which commands women to be sober, but Amy Grant seems to care nothing for sobriety, as she gets excited when her audience is smoking marijuana:
"I remember years ago... the first time I smelled somebody smoking a joint at a concernt, I was thrilled. I thought, this is incredible... A lot of people smoke like smokestacks, but if they're in a gathering that they know is all Christians, they will not totally be themselves."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 30, ISBN: 9780312303907; Read "What's Wrong With Christian Rock?" here at creationliberty.com for more details on the hand sign she's making.

In case you didn't understand what she's saying in context, she wants those in the audience who call themselves "Christians" to do whatever they feel like doing, whether it's Biblical or not, as long as they feel comfortable. Giving the true Gospel, which includes the law for repentance and faith, makes people uncomfortable, which is why it is so commonly rejected, but Grant doesn't actually present that Gospel message. (Read "Is Repentance Part of Salvation?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

Before Grant divorced her ex-husband Gary Chapman, he said:
"I think she wants to say that it's okay to be a Christian and have fun. Not to completely separate yourself from humanity just because you don't believe exactly like everyone else."
-Gary Chapman, quoted by R. Italia & B. Italia, Amy Grant: Reaching For The Stars, Abdo Pub Co, 1992, p. 16, ISBN: 9781562391454

The Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ has nothing to do with what men think and what men believe; it has to do with what is right by the Word of God. The Word of God tells us to sanctify (set apart) ourselves:

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
-Ephesians 5:11

Amy Grant Yokes Herself Up With The World

Grant has no problem yoking herself together with people that a Christian ought not to associate with. For example, she agreed to perform at a governers' dinner in the White House before introducting George W. Bush to speak:
(George W. Bush, Vince Gill (L), Amy Grant (R), The White House, Washington D.C., Feb 24, 2008)

Just like Michael W. Smith, Amy Grant attended and performed at George and Barbara Bush's 50th anniversary party in 1995. Keep in mind that her favorite part of the night was Vince Gill because that will come up later in this article:
"'The night was such an interesting mix of people who love them and support them,' Grant said backstage. One of her favorite moments was her pal Vince Gill's performance of the ballad 'Look At Us,' a song that she said could have been written for Mr. and Mrs. Bush. 'What they have is very unique,' she said. 'I was really impressed...'"
-Deborah E. Price, "Artists & Music," Billboard, Jan 21, 1995, p. 40

This article is focusing on Grant, so I won't go into the extensive evils that the Bush family has wrought in this country. Grant yokes herself together with the world, and doesn't care because she has no Biblical discernment.

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?... Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
-2 Corinthians 6:14-17

She also performs next to incredibly wicked musicians. The Yamaha 125th Anniversary Concert had Grant performing "Baby, baby," live on stage:
"Joining the 'Rocket Man' [Elton John] onstage will be Amy Grant, Chaka Khan, Dave Grusin, Earth, Wind & Fire, David Foster, Dave Koz, James Newton Howard, LEOGUN, Landon Pigg, Lucy Schwatz, Michael McDonald, Sarah McLachlan, Sinbad and Toto."
-Yamaha, "Yamaha 125th Anniversary Dealer Concert Starring Elton John to Be Streamed Live," Jan 23, 2013, retrieved Feb 21, 2015, [usa.yamaha.com/news_events/corporate/yamaha_125th_anniversary_dealer_concert_starring_eltonjohn]


To sanctify ourselves means to set ourselves apart from the world, not to perform live on stage with them.

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
-1 Thessalonians 5:23

Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.
-Hebrews 13:12

Jesus Christ shed His blood to sanctify His people, but few people claiming to be Christians today care anything about sanctification. The reason Amy Grant yokes herself up with the world is because she is part of the world; never to repentance and faith in the Jesus Christ of the Bible.

Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
-James 4:4

Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
-2 Corinthians 7:1

"Why isolate yourself? Your life isolates you enough. I'm isolated when I walk into a room and somebody says, 'She's a Christian' and nobody offers me a joint and all the coke [cocaine] disappears. I don't want it anyway, but it doesn't mean that we can't be friends."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 169, ISBN: 9780312303907

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
-Hebrews 10:25

We do not isolate ourselves when we gather together with other brethren in Christ, nor do we isolate ourselves from the world because we are to preach the Gospel to them.

I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
-John 17:15-19

My Bible tells me that we are blessed when men depart from us because of the Lord Jesus Christ:

Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
-Luke 6:22

We aren't supposed to be "hanging out" with worldly people when they're participating in the sin of the world. Certainly we spend time with people of the world, but while they're actively participating in their sin. We ought not to sit around chatting with people while they're doing drugs any more than we should sit around chatting people while there is a sex orgy going on in the room. Amy Grant has no concept of sanctification and division from the lusts of the world.
(Read "Did Christ Come to Bring Peace?" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

The fun, or feel-good emotions, and the making friends, are more important to Amy Grant than the teaching of God's Word.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
-2 Timothy 3:1-5

As I do with all the wolves in our "Wolves in Costume" series, I go hunting for some sort of salvation testimony, usually in vain because they never give one. So in this search, I decided to visit Amy Grant's official website, and I found exactly what I expected, no mention of the Lord Jesus Christ or His Word, and any mention of "God" is only in reference to a song she sings with some secular heathen music artist, because Grant has no concept of Biblical sanctification.

"At some point in life you realize that some things really matter and some things don't. Living matters. Celebrating life matters. Seeing the value in hard times matters. Relationships and people matter. Faith matters... Life prepares us for the journey. You donít know whatís ahead and that is one of the great things about getting older in a framework of faith. Faith is the one thing that stands the test of time."
-Amy Grant, "Career Bio," Amy Grant Official Website About Page, retrieved Feb 10, 2015, [amygrant.com/about-amy/career-info]

My first question when reading Amy's words was: "Faith in what?" She doesn't make that clear because my Bible says that celebrating life and living is what leads to destruction:

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
-Matthew 10:39

Grant's focus is on living her life, and teaching others to put their focus onto this earthly life. She does briefly mention "faith," but since nothing in her "Career Bio" mentions anything about the Christian God of the Bible, how do we know what faith she really has?

Fans of Grant, of course, point out songs like "El Shaddai," and "Thy Word," but that doesn't mean that Grant believes in what she sings about. For example, there are many wicked musicians out there who have produced "gospel" songs -- R. Kelly, Michelle Williams, Kelly Price, and many more have made a lot of money off of singing gospel songs, but that doesn't mean they believe what they're singing. We also did an entire expose on Michael W. Smith, and showed that Smith, in what very little "gospel" he sings, did not believe in the doctrine he was singing about.

Though many Grant fanboys and fangirls will reject these statements because they're in love with her music, and will write me letters complaining about how she sings her music for Jesus, that's not what Grant says:
"I make music because what I'm driven to do is connect. There were times I would get to the end of something and say, 'Whew, I feel better,' but not exactly be sure what I meant [by the lyrics]. The reoccuring theme is longing, and I think that's because I have some very intense, unresoved issues in my life... Look, I am not the consummate [skilled] musician; I am not the deep thinker. I just love music, and it has truly been a lifeline for me."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Chuck Taylor in an interview with Grant, "Amy Grant Searches For Deeper Meanings On 'Behind The Eyes' Set," Billboard Magazine, May 2, 1998, p. 80


Grant does not believe the Lord Jesus Christ is her lifeline -- it's her music. I didn't see anything about the Lord Jesus Christ or his Gospel anywhere in her description of why she writes her music, and in fact, the entire interview with Billboard had no mention of the Christian God of the Bible.
"Now, at least for the time being, Grant remains satisfied to continue her search for answers, using her music as a tool to lead the way. 'There's no end to what this songwriting is dredging up for me,' she says. 'Every song has some seed of reality, somewhere between what life is and what you wish it were. I'm always on the endless hunt to be moved.'"
-Amy Grant, quoted by Chuck Taylor in an interview with Grant, "Amy Grant Searches For Deeper Meanings On 'Behind The Eyes' Set," Billboard Magazine, May 2, 1998, p. 80

Does the Lord Jesus Christ lead the way? No, her music leads her. Is the endless hunt to find the truth and to learn God's Word? No, Grant's focus in her life is to be emotionally swayed by music, and the Word of God takes a backseat, assuming she even considers the Lord God enough to toss him in the car.

Amy also does not care what impression anyone gets from her music:
"That's one reason I started writing songs, because I didn't want to impose my religion on anyone. This way my audience can sit back and draw their own conclusions, and I feel a certain freedom because I've communicated what I think and the audience's interpretation of it is its own responsibility."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 169, ISBN: 9780312303907

Amy Grant does not make a distinction in her music about Gospel specifically to the Lord Jesus Christ. She may mention the name "jesus" in her songs, but the "jesus" she believes in accepts fornication and adultery, and anyone's "religion" is okay with her because she doesn't believe in the Christian God of the Bible. (i.e. She has no concern for their souls; remember earlier she said that she "wasn't trying to convert anyone.")

The vague beliefs of Amy Grant rolls over into her music, and that is not only evidenced by the lyrics (as we saw earlier), but also by the fact that other pagan religions love her songs. For example, many Catholicis love Amy Grant, as catholic.org reported:
"When telling friends I was going to interview Amy Grant most of them said, 'I love Amy Grant, my family listened to her music on road trips,' or 'Heart In Motion was my favorite album as a kid. I sang her songs all the time.'"
-Billy Atwell, "Amy Grant: Notes of a Musical Icon," Catholic Online, July 22, 2010, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [www.catholic.org/news/ae/music/story.php?id=37495]

Grant's music doesn't quite have enough Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ in it to make the Mary-worshiping pagans take pause. In fact, the Catholic interviewer concluded that her music is not really about Christ at all:
"The more Amy spoke, the more I realized the purpose and inspiration behind her music: experience. Her trying experiences not only serve as the inspiration behind her songs, but they are the reason as well."
-Billy Atwell, "Amy Grant: Notes of a Musical Icon," Catholic Online, July 22, 2010, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [www.catholic.org/news/ae/music/story.php?id=37495]

The inspiration behind Amy Grant's music is not the Lord Jesus Christ, nor His Word, it is her personal experiences that serve as a foundation. Again, she might mention the name of Jesus Christ on occasion, but it doesn't really have anything to do with the Bible.

When Grant was asked about her purpose and reason for her music, she said:
"I'm always trying to connect with people... I want to connect people to each other, the things they believe in, the love of God, forgiveness, and things that are active and alive. I sing songs about regular life and people will say, 'Oh that song reminds me of Spring Break' or 'That song made me dance.' And in the middle of those warm and fuzzies I'll sing a song that is really meant to speak to them... I'm not trying to hit them while their guard is down-but I'm trying to create a familiar landscape and they often go 'that's me, that's me'. And then when I sing a song that presents the Gospel they go 'oh my goodness, that's me too.'"
-Billy Atwell, "Amy Grant: Notes of a Musical Icon," Catholic Online, July 22, 2010, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [www.catholic.org/news/ae/music/story.php?id=37495]

Many church-goers may miss this, but this quotation is very key in understanding the new-age leaven of Amy Grant. When she claims she sings a song that presents the Gospel, she expects them to see themselves and who they are in it, not seeing the Lord Jesus Christ, who He is, and what He has done. It's not about seeing that they are guilty of breaking God's laws, coming to repentance as lost sinners and seek the Savior, but rather, it's about looking at Amy Grant's idol she calls "jesus" and seeing a reflection of themselves, thinking that God is like them.

These things hast thou done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as thyself: but I will reprove thee, and set them in order before thine eyes.
-Psalm 50:21

Grant's music is designed to make people feel better about themselves, not bring them to repentance, which correlates perfectly with her earlier statement that she doesn't want to convert anyone.

In an interview with a gay and lesbian (LGBT) news reporter, Grant describes sitting at a friends house when relating to her thoughts on "judging" matters:
"As we were sitting there trying to get quiet, she [Grant's friend] said, 'It never gets still, and so Iím not gonna get all rankled in my head. Iím just gonna say, Well, thereís the noise of the person next door blowing off their driveway with that really load motor. There it is. There's the sound of sirens going up and down the street.' She said, 'When we learn to observe without judgment, then we have the ability to observe and learn, or to observe and be.' And I [Grant] said, 'Do you know how exhausting it is to observe with judgment all the time? Itís just exhausting.' I have thanked her many times. We could all stand to hear that."
-Chris Azzopardi, "Amy Grant In Her First Gay Press Interview," Pride Source, Apr 23, 2013, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [pridesource.com/article.html?article=59691]

Please take a moment to consider that "judgment without observation" is called "blindness." That's like a jury in a courtroom giving a "not guilty" verdict without looking at any of the evidence first. The message Amy Grant teaches is that it is too exhausting to judge righteously by the Word of God, so just don't bother doing it.

But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
-1 Corinthians 2:15

Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
-John 7:24

We are supposed to judge in righteousness according to the spirit of the Lord God (just don't judge hypocritically), and the reason a church-goer that claims to be a Christian (like Amy Grant) would be in such objection to judging with righteous judgment is most likely because they haven't received a love of the truth from the Lord Jesus Christ, and they themselves don't want to be judged. They are still "the natural man" who cannot discern the things of world from the things of God.
(Read "Unbiblical Cop-Outs: Don't Judge Me!" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

"LGBT INTERVIEWER: From photos I've seen and conversations I've heard, you seem to have established some close relationships with people in the Gay Friends of Amy Grant group on Facebook over the years. Can you describe your relationship with them?
GRANT: When you've done something for a long time, there is a great familiarity that comes over the years. I will say that I have a couple of friends that I made - just because they came to shows for a long time - and I figure we must have some things in common because, of all the music we're all attracted to, at least we share this music in common."

Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
-2 Corinthians 6:14

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
-Romans 1:26-27

Amy Grant willingly yokes herself together with sodomites, refusing to rebuke them and sanctify herself, as the Word of God instructs us to do. Grant was even willing to go do performances at gay weddings:
"LGBT INTERVIEWER: Weren't you invited to perform at the wedding of one of your gay fans but couldn't due to your schedule?
GRANT: I was invited. I was honored to be invited."

-Chris Azzopardi, "Amy Grant In Her First Gay Press Interview," Pride Source, Apr 23, 2013, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [pridesource.com/article.html?article=59691]

Grant is honored to be a part of those who defy God's Word and commit wicked abominations:

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
-Romans 1:32

In the end, these are fornicators who do not care for the things of God. Certainly we can talk and eat with them, but the Bible tells us to avoid those who call themselves brethren and live in fornication and adultery:

But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
-1 Corinthians 5:11

At the very least, at the end of the interview, Grant let us know that she's a part of the ecumenical movement; the all-inclusive new-age church.
"I know that the religious community has not been very welcoming, but I just want to stress that the journey of faith brings us into community, but it's really about one relationship. The journey of faith is just being willing and open to have a relationship with God. And everybody is welcome. Everybody."

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
-1 Corinthians 6:11

Grant invites these people, who have not repented and come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, into her new-age apostate church. She makes not effort to teach or live her life as a sanctified Christian.

Amy Grant repeatedly contradicts Scripture by the things she says she believes. When referring to young men and women touching, Grant says:
"Petting happens. It's part of growing up, finding out who you are, how men and women work. As a teenager, when I gave part of me to someone, I knew I was just going to flirt, have a little fun, and do whatever I could rationalize,"
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 30, ISBN: 9780312303907

To Amy Grant, it's about the "god" of her own mind, using her own thoughts as the standard for good and evil. But again, Bible teaches the opposite:

Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
-1 Corinthians 7:2

The Christians God of the Bible is not her foundation. Amy Grant's thinking has always seemed to revolve around sex, and because she is guilty of fornication and adutery, therefore, she seeks to justify herself, giving an exuse for other men and women to do the same.


Getting back to my quest to find some sort of Salvation testimony, the best I could get was a story about attending a Bible study when she was 14-years-old:
"That happened when I was a freshman in high school. The guy reading it [the Bible] was dating my older sister. I thought he was the cutest thing that had ever happened in Nashville. He was nine years older than me and I thought, 'Mimi, I hate to do this to you, but I'm going to steal this guy away.' So I went to this Bible study thinking I was going to make this guy fall in love with me. I was fourteen. Hey, you know. But I was so overwhelmed by what they were talking about at this Bible study. I became a very serious, committed Christian."
-Amy Grant, quoted by Bob Willard, Amy Grant: The Life of a Pop Star, Macmillan, 2003, p. 30-31, ISBN: 9780312303907

Did you read anything in her statements about the Lord Jesus Christ? Sin? Guilt? Repentance? Law? Blood shed for her soul? Amy Grant went to this Bible study to "steal a guy," which is interesting because that's exactly what it shows her doing when she's flirting with someone in the introduction to her music video, "Baby, Baby."

And I guess they didn't talk about anything concerning covetness in that Bible study:

What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.
-Romans 7:7

Amy Grant's actions and words are demonstrating the "fun" she has in getting other people to covet her, and thus, she also teaches this wicked practice to other young women.

(Live Interview with Amy Grant & Vince Gill on Larry King Live)

This interview was really for the purpose of trying to quell public churchianity uproar about the divorces and remarriages that Amy Grant and Vince Gill choose to initiate. While reading the transcript of this interview, I laughed a few times because I would see how Gill and Grant both would try to hide certain pieces of information, for example:
"GRANT: Well, I'm listening to what he's saying. And I'm thinking about this time that we were totally off the subject, we were at a -- some place where there was like an open mic."
-CNN Transcripts, "Interview With Amy Grant, Vince Gill," Dec 6, 2003, retrieved Feb 10, 2015, [cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0312/06/lkl.00.html]

Notice how Amy dodged saying the word "bar" at the last second when she realized that wouldn't sound very good on international television.

Some Grant fans will object to this, claiming that's a complete assumption. Not at all. She told a news reporter:
"I'm not going to say too often that I like a cold beer while watching a football game. That might bother some of my fans."
-Amy Grant, Greensville News, May 4, 1994, quoted by Eugene T. Motes, The Moral Decay of Society: America Under Attack!, iUniverse, 2011, p. 219, ISBN: 97814502778919781450277891

If any Christians reading this don't understand the sin involved, please read our article "The Bible vs Alcohol" for more details. Amy Grant attempts to justify herself to many sins, most famously her adultery with country music star Vince Gill.

He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so. And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
-Matthew 19:8-9

Many church-goers walk around thinking they can divorce and remarry whoever they want, but the Lord Jesus Christ says otherwise.
(Read "Marriage: What Christians Should Know" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.
-Matthew 5:31-32

And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. And in the house his disciples asked him again of the same matter. And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her. And if a woman shall put away her husband, and be married to another, she committeth adultery.
-Mark 10:8-12

But many church-goers, including Amy Grant, believe that because Jesus Christ went to the cross, Christians have been delivered to do whatever wicked action they so desire. It's no different than the days of the Jews:

Will ye steal, murder, and commit adultery, and swear falsely, and burn incense unto Baal, and walk after other gods whom ye know not; And come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD.
-Jeremiah 7:9-11

Amy Grant obviously cares more about the lusts of the flesh than the Word of God.

Grant left Chapman in 1998, officially divorced him in 1999, and IMMEDIATELY, within a year, married Vince Gill, which left many people, including myself, with the strong suspicion that Amy was fornicating with Vince while they were both married to their former spouses.

People magazine reported that Vince Gill showed signs of cheating on his wife with Amy Grant in 1994:
"Janis Gill... Vince's wife of 17 years and mother of his daughter Jenny... initially tolerated the close friendship he struck up with Grant... after she performed at his 1993 Christmas concert. Janis's forbearance vanished the next year after she found hand-written notes from Grant in her husband's golf bag. Her sister Kristine Arnold recalls coming home and finding a sobbing Janis parked in her driveway on the night of the discovery. 'She was holding a crumpled note... It said, I love you, Amy. That was the beginning of the end.' After unsuccessfully begging Gill to cut his ties with Grant, Janis finally divorced him citing 'irreconcilable differences' in 1997,"
-Erik Meers, "Finally a Duet," People Magazine, Vol. 52, No. 21, Nov 29, 1999, retrieved Feb 17, 2015, [people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20129901,00.html]

I have been unable to document where he said this, but it's relevant enough to this subject that I thought it was worth mentioning. I have been told that Gary Chapman was asked to comment if he believed that Amy was having an affair behind his back, and Chapman responded: "Could I answer? Yeah. Will I answer? Probably not. I think by Amyís admission theyíve been very dear friends for years. I suspect most people can add. Iíll leave that to their mathematical abilities." I have not found a way to contact Chapman and ask him to verify the quote, so if anyone reading finds an original source for this, please contact our ministry and let us know.

Grant's own words have left a lot church-goers with suspicions that she lied to everyone about her relationship with Gill prior to her divorce:
"When Amy Grant and Vince Gill sang a duet for her 1994 album House of Love, he was the king of country and she was the queen of Christian pop. The pair met to record a video for the song, and sparks flew: 'I think a part of me loved him instantly,' Grant says. But both singers were married to other people at the time and had children, and their commitment to their families and their fans meant their romance was doomed before it could grow. 'I felt like I knew him instantly... I was so moved by him as a human being that I went up behind him and just hugged him as hard as I could while he was singing. I just said, I just needed to hug you all night.'... Gill says he wrote his 1995 song 'Whenever You Come Around' with Grant in mind: 'The face of an angel; pretty eyes that shine,' the song goes, 'I lie awake at night wishing you were mine.'"
-ABC News, "Interview With Amy Grant and Vince Gill," retrieved Feb 21, 2015, [abcnews.go.com/Primetime/story?id=131919]

I did not quote this in effort to start some gossip chain; this is to demonstrate that Amy Grant does not live the way she claims she believes, and she does not show any signs of repentance for her sin. In fact, there is a multitude of sins across the board in adultery between many of those involved:

Grant and Gill went around to all these major news outlets everywhere to do special interviews in which they discussed their divorces and marriages, and attempted to justify themselves. They lied to everyone on camera, and there was one, and only one, purpose in doing so:
"In the wake of Grant's divorce, many Christian media [outlets]; including Christianity Today International; avoided doing Amy Grant stories. Many Christian radio stations and bookstores refused to play her music or sell her records."
-Mark Moring, "Simply Complicated," Crosswalk, Aug 25, 2003, retrieved Feb 19, 2015, [crosswalk.com/11617742]

Since the Word of God is lost on the ears of Amy Grant, people spoke to her in the only language she understands: money. And she knows her fame (or infamy) is directly connected to that flow of money.

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
-1 Timothy 6:10

And speaking of profit, don't forget the millions Amy Grant has made off her pagan witchcraft Christmas music. Based on my count, Amy Grant has about 20 original albums, five of those being Christmas albums, which means 25% of what she has produced has been music honoring paganism, and not only is it because she loves her pagan witchcraft during that season (since she has no interest in the Lord Jesus Christ), but also because she makes a huge amount of money from them.
(Read "Christmas: The Rejection of Jesus" here at creationliberty.com for more details.)

They think they're praising the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible, but the truth is that they're worshiping at the feet of pagan gods, and the Lord God does not hear them. After addressing pagan practices, the Bible tells us:

Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
-Amos 5:23

And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
-Isaiah 1:15

So many church-goers think God hears them no matter what music they play, no matter what they say, no matter what they do. That's false doctrine.

The influence Amy Grant has made can be better demonstrated by some of her more famous fans. Katy Perry grew up listening to Amy Grant, and wanted to be just like her:
(Video interview with Katy Perry)
PERRY: "I released a gospel record when I was 15 because I grew up in a household where all I ever did was listen to gospel music, and my parents are both traveling ministers, and so I kinda' sang about what was going on in my life at 15, and that's how I got introduced to the music industry. I swear, I wanted to be like the Amy Grant of music, but it didn't work out, so I sold my soul to the devil."

Katy Perry, as most people are aware, uses a sexy image to sell her records, just as she learned from Amy Grant. Most church-goers sit in complete blindness to the true evil effect Grant has had on the next generation.

Overall, it's been fairly difficult to do research on Amy Grant, simply because her answers in interviews are incredibly vague. For example:
"LGBT INTERVIEWER: So how do you respond to people when they ask you about your feelings on gay marriage?
GRANT: In the same way that I did not tell one person who I voted for. I don't. I never talk about anything like that."

-Chris Azzopardi, "Amy Grant In Her First Gay Press Interview," Pride Source, Apr 23, 2013, retrieved Feb 13, 2015, [pridesource.com/article.html?article=59691]

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
-Revelation 3:15-16

She doesn't answer questions and talk about issues of the Bible and sin on purpose because she doesn't want anyone to know what she really believes; riding the fence on matters so she can put on a the clothing of a sheep, without actually believing what sheep are supposed to believe. But just like her music, her vague answers allow an audience to interpret them any way they please, instead of Amy doing what's right (as a real Chrisitian would do) to stand on a firm solid foundation of the Word of God without compromise, and the Lord Jesus Christ will spit her out.

Other reasons for the difficulty in researching her is that many reporters ask her questions that could be simply looked up on useless sources like Wikipedia. Sometimes they even ask her the most ridiculous, pointless questions like: "How did she keep her hair so perfectly curled and not frizz in the rain?" There were a lot of interviews that were a complete waste of my time to read.
(See Emily Miller, "Amy Grant Sings in D.C. for Veterans Day, Talks Politics and Hair Tips," Politics Daily, retrieved Feb 19, 2015, [politicsdaily.com/2009/11/11/amy-grant-sings-in-d-c-for-veterans-day-talks-politics-and-hai])

Although, every now and again, she lets something slip out of her mouth that shows her true mentality, like her support of Obamacare:
"I asked how she thought President Obama was performing so far. She paused for almost a minute, then said: 'I've been praying hard for him for health care reform.' Asked if she agreed with the specific reforms in Congress now, she said that she thinks that 'health care reform is eventually going to be a good thing.' Still, she hadn't answered the question about Obama. How does she think he's doing as president? Grant answered, 'I think he'll do a great job.'"

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
-Isaiah 5:20

At the very least, we can be thankful to the Lord God that Grant prays to a false god of her imagination, so she'll have no spiritual influence in getting Obamacare enacted.

To try and straighten out her real beliefs, I contacted Grant's official website and asked very simply how one could be saved, since there was nothing on the website about salvation. I knew I wouldn't get a response from her personally, but to this day, I've never received a response.

Yet, Grant believes her differences with people like myself do not come from issues of morality, but other minor disagreements:
"REPORTER: What do you wish your evangelical critics knew about your more mainstream music?
GRANT: I just think music is such a beautiful thing. It lifts the heart and buoys up your spirits-all kinds of music. I just think people should find the music that helps them through the day and enjoy that. I've never felt like... it's a morality issue."

-Amy Grant, "We're All in a Process," beliefnet, retrieved Feb 18, 2015, [beliefnet.com/Entertainment/Music/2004/11/Were-All-In-A-Process.aspx?p=2]

Hopefully Ms. Grant, I pray this article get directly in your hands somehow so that you can recieve clear Biblical rebuke that a true Christian's objection with you is NOT your melodies, but it is your offense to the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ through your false doctrine and wicked deeds which you make every effort to hide from the public; having no repentance (godly sorrow) that you have done wrong in the sight of the Lord God, and portraying a lie that you are a born-again Christian who believes on the Word of God when you are not.

Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
-Exodus 20:7

Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men... And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
-Mark 7:7-9

I don't see any repentance in Amy Grant at all, which is why I can't say she believes in the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible. Grant believes in a made-up version of "god," so long as that "god" doesn't judge her sin.

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
-John 15:19

Folks, the world does not hate Amy Grant; they love her dearly. This clearly demonstrates that she is not of Christ, but of the world, and I ask that Christians pray that the Lord Jesus Christ would bring her to repentance, and that despite her wickedness, that He would be long-suffering with her, giving her every opportunity to hear the truth and be saved before it's too late.

Amy Grant is no different than Michael W. Smith, Billy Graham, Mother Teresa, or any other of the wolves we've covered so far. She is pushing people toward the new-age, one-world religion of the antichrist, and cares nothing for the souls of the lost.
