So. Madonna thinks she’s as relevant to American culture as Frank Sinatra or Aretha Franklin. (Her words, in answer to a question from NBC’s Matt Lauer.)
Three words, Madonna: Stay in England.
What’s more, she showed just how lost she is by revealing that she’s studying Kabbalah, a gnostic teaching that claims to be the “one universal wisdom that was the origin of all spiritual teachings and religions”.
The Resurrection is one of the most thoroughly documented events of ancient times. Jesus is real, and His life was recorded by those who knew Him and learned from Him. He said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.”
If God, the Creator, is the source of universal wisdom, then to know wisdom begins by knowing Jesus Christ.
I guess Madonna has been seduced by the promise of long-hidden wisdom about the secret origins of our souls. The sad part is that the wisdom she seeks is hiding in plain sight. Do a search and see how many free Bibles you can read on the web or download to your computer.
Ultimately, it comes down to this: The truth of Christianity is borne out by the hard, cold facts of the Crucifixion and the Resurrection.
The truth of the “mystery” religions, such as Kabbalah, will not be revealed in full to their followers until the moment after death. And then it’s too late to repent.
