On Madonna’s latest world tour, “Confessions,” during her song Live to Tell, she is mounted onto a cross while wearing a crown of thorns. As far as she is concerned, there is nothing wrong with it.
“It is no different than a person wearing a cross. My performance is neither anti-Christian, sacrilegious or blasphemous…I believe in my heart that if Jesus were alive today he would be doing the same thing.”
I’m sorry, but I can’t see Jesus condoning the actions of Madonna. The crucifixion of Jesus was not for show; it provided mankind salvation following the fall into sin.
Her antics have caused protests outside of some of her venues. She says that this is helping raise awareness for AIDS and provides an opportunity for her audience to donate for that cause. In reality, she is making a mockery of everything that Christianity teaches: namely, the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Christ’s crucifixion brought forgiveness of sins, life and salvation. Madonna’s “crucifixion” brought about $193.7 million.
