George Strait's Music Helping To Ruin Marriages

By David J. Stewart | August 2015

Joshua 24:15, “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

       Famous country legend singer, George Harvey Strait (1952-present), has warmed the hearts, homes, restaurants and workplaces of Americans for decades since his first solo release in 1981. I love George Strait's voice. I've always thought of Mr. Strait as the epitome of a cowboy (I'm sure that's how he wants to be perceived). I've seen his movie “Pure Country” several times and it is one of my favorites.

I play pedal steel guitar, so I naturally love country sounding music, although as a Christian I choose to be careful what the I use to play along with in public. I admire Paul Franklin Jr.'s and Buddy Emmons' pedal steel guitar skills on Mr. Strait's albums. I think I like “The Chair” best of all his songs, just because of the melody. If it weren't for the shameful adulterous lyrics of the hit song, “The Seashores Of Old Mexico,” I think that would be my favorite melody. I'm not an enemy of George Strait. I'm more of a frustrated fan. I am just a born-again Christian with an opinion on everything. There's nothing worse than a professed Christian who never stands for anything.

I heard a song today by George Strait titled, “Without Me Around.” Here are some of the shameful lyrics which promotes feminist teachings, selfishness, rebellion, quitting and divorce. I doubt if Mr. Strait wrote the lyrics, but by singing them, he owns it...

Partial lyrics to “Without Me Around” . . .

You said she asked if you knew where she could get some old boxes
'Cause she was going to pack up everything she owned
Where the closest U-Haul place is and what the cost was
This time tomorrow she'll be gone

She says she knows of a place to sell her ring for a good price
That and what she saved will get her by
If she can find a job in that little town that she's headed to
To start over with her life

Without me around
Taking up her time and tying her down
Without me in the way
She'll be free to enjoy the freedom
You say she's found without me around

Said she didn't know what she was getting into when we got married
But she knows good and damn well what she's getting out of
Said she's had enough of a man who's never there
When she needs him, she'll be better off in the long run

Without me around
Taking up her time, tying her down
Without me in the way
She'll be free to enjoy the freedom
You say she's found without me around
What she found without me around

Kindly, the song made me sick, because it plants bad (sinful) ideas into women's brains. First of all, any wife who thinks that her husband is taking up her time needs to fall on her knees and beg God for forgiveness. A wife was created the Holy Bible says to be her husband's “HELP MEET” (Genesis 2:18). If your husband takes up your time, good, that's your job ladies! Your time is his time, not vice versa. Anything with two heads is a monster. Someone must lead in a marriage, and Biblically it should be the man. This doesn't mean that it's wrong for a woman to run the family's finances if she's better with money than her husband; but rather, it simply means that God has ordained the Husband to rule (lovingly and respectfully) over his own wife.

Second, it is a delusional fantasy in most cases for married women to view freedom from their husband as a good thing. I've seen women get around the wrong crowd. It might be a fake friend from church, or a biased family member, or a government-funded women's shelter, or a shady lawyer, et cetera, who advises filing for divorce. To deceive the woman they will paint a delightful picture of her having her own life, going to college to secure a career, financially taking advantage of her husband in courts, et cetera. In reality, most women who divorce end up a decade later broke, on welfare (if they qualify), alone or divorced again, unhappy, unfulfilled and far worse off than when they were married. In other words, she finds out over time that the grass wasn't as green as she thought on the other side. Can you think of any George Strait song where he encourages wives to stay with their less than perfect husband? I can't. George has a pathetic song promoting fornication, called “Overnight Male.”

How about a song titled, “Married Forever, No Matter What!” The truth is that whacko feminists would have Mr. Strait's head for a decent song like that, just as they roasted Tammy Wynette for singing the great song, “Stand By Your Man!” I am not trying to be unkind, but George Strait is promoting divorce, helping to ruin marriages. Mr. Strait is extremely popular with the public, especially women, and they take to heart what he sings about.

In the lyrics I just shared with you, George says the woman hocked her wedding ring for money to leave her husband. I wonder how many women hadn't even thought about selling their wedding ring, until Mr. Strait put that sinful idea into her head. George also encourages wives to save some money to make their escape, to get away from that big, bad, husband, who goes to work everyday, braves bad weather, deals with the problems at work, all so that he can to pay your bills as part of the family. Now you want to divorce him? So you can go work your own job? Pay your own bills? Pay rent for your own space? You need to stop, breathe, and think a little bit before you throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Third, Mr. Strait sings about a wife who is tired that her husband is never there. I feel sorry for all of America's truck-drivers, who work long hours hauling our food and toys from coast-to-coast, and then shameful multi-millionaire celebrates like George Strait help ruin people's marriages by putting the idea in women's minds that a husband should always be there! What a selfish society we live in today! What about all the military men overseas, who one sad day receive a disinheartening letter from their wife 12,000 miles away, saying that she is lonely and has eloped with another man who is there for her? I'm not making this stuff up. I knew a Navy man who told me about a sailor on his ship, who chained himself to an anchor and cast himself to the bottom of the sea, after he received a communication that his wife back home that she had left him, tired of being alone. What a monstrous witch!!! What scum trash! That wife has blood on her hands. I can't help but wonder if she heard George Strait's song, “Without Me Around?”

Fourth, Mr. Strait says the woman is tired of being tied down by her husband, and wants to have freedom, which her husband denies her. This is all so evil. God hates wifely rebellion. My friend, please read the book of Proverbs in the Old Testament and the Holy Bible, and you won't think like a fool as the world does. George Strait's songs promote sinful worldly philosophies, which compel women to divorce. The very thought of a husband tying his wife's life down is Satanic! If you are a wife, God commands you to obey and submit to your husband. Many women refuse to do the things that their husband would like for them to do, or learn to do. If it's not immoral or against the law, a godly wife will work at it and try to please her husband in every way!!! Godless feminists (many are homosexuals) regard neither God nor man, instead murdering their children by abortion and living a deathstyle of sin. God hates feminism, which is really rebellion, pride and stubbornness.

Effectively, George Strait's horrible song encourages tired wives to file for divorce, providing instructions how to go about it, offering woman a new start in a little town (a new job, better off, now free to do her own thing). It is wickedness! Strait's song reminds me of a rebellious teenager with no understanding, who runs away from a strict but loving home to head for Las Vegas, thinking that a big carefree happy life awaits them! You poor little fool! Now, the reason I have preached against Mr. Strait's music is because it influences people's lives, more than he could ever imagine, or else he wouldn't do what he's doing. I would hate to think that he just doesn't care, or God forbid, does it deliberately to appease his Illuminati masters in the music industry. Satan wants to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). The New World Order is the outward manifestation of Satan's kingdom of darkness (Global tyranny, totalitarianism, abortion, Satanism, Godlessness, homosexuality, divorce, rebellion, et cetera). It's all happening right now!

The Psychology Behind Harmful Music

The Association for Natural Psychology confirms that music has incredible power of suggestion over a culture. ...

Music transmits ideas and emotions from individual to individual as well as to masses of people through mass media. Music is a product of culture, but also influences culture with a tremendous potential to influence millions of minds on many levels, including mentally, emotionally, and even chemically. Music can be used positively both on a personal level, in education and in professional music therapy. [emphasis added]

According to a disturbing report in Medical Daily, the fictional characters in music (and all forms of media) tend to transfer themselves into the soul of the listener or viewer. That is scary, huh? ...

Psychologists have discovered that while reading a book or story, people are prone to subconsciously adopt their behavior, thoughts, beliefs and internal responses to that of fictional characters as if they were their own.

Experts have dubbed this subconscious phenomenon ‘experience-taking,’ where people actually change their own behaviors and thoughts to match those of a fictional character that they can identify with.

Researcher from the Ohio State University conducted a series of six different experiments on about 500 participants, reporting in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, found that in the right situations, ‘experience-taking,’ may lead to temporary real world changes in the lives of readers.

They found that stories written in the first-person can temporarily transform the way readers view the world, themselves and other social groups.

Wow! In other words, women who listen to George Strait singing about leaving a husband, selling their wedding-ring, moving away and divorcing are far more likely to actually do it, vicariously living the music through their own real experience.

Ladies, if you don't want to fail in your marriage, then don't plan for failure. Beware of the secular music that you listen to. I'm not against Country music, but I am against the Illuminati-controlled music industry, which is saturated with sexual immorality, rebellion, booze, occult symbols and Satanism.

Everyone gets tired. Everyone feels overwhelmed. Many married people feel like they got a raw deal. Trust me, that big hunk that seems so loving, kind and fun to be around has smelly feet, bad breath and a list of faults, just like your hubby. Ask God to help you be content with your marriage. After several years, it is very easy for a young marriage couple to lose interest in each other. The thought of a new place to live, a new spouse, new friends and a new direction in life is naturally intriguing to anyone. Sure, that sounds great. What you're really wanting is a long break from the n=monotony of the life you now have. You're tired and want out, so you think. What you both need is a change. I suggest that struggling married couple move, leave your career if it's devouring your soul and find a line of work that you enjoy, even if it pays a little less. If you like cooking, then do that! Never stay is a dead-end job that is wrecking havoc in your marriage because of emotional abuse and stress at work from Godless people.

I hate the legal system in America with a perfect hatred. I despise lawyers, prosecutors and judges. Recent news has been saturated with corrupt judges, lawyers and prosecutors going to prison for being criminals themselves. There's no one as dishonest and thuggish as attorneys and judges. Don't take my word for it, research the news. My point to you my friend is that the legal system in America is shady, dishonest and rigged to destroy your marriage and family. The Illuminati control the legal system through the courts. Many judges are homosexuals and lesbians, Freemasons and on the take (bribes). The United States and all territories under the jurisdiction of the federal government are massively corrupt.

The divorce industry rakes in $50,000,000,000 each year in America, and that's because lawyers, prosecutors and judges (the Devil's triangle) do everything in their power to force people into divorce. During the divorce, the couple are legally banned from talking to each other, to ensure that the fraudulent court system maintains the upper-hand. They don't want the couple patching things up and canceling the divorce (which would almost assuredly happen). But no, that piece of trash judge and scum-sucking lawyers want to make sure that the marriage is dissolved to make their New World Order puppeteers who control the legal system happy. I absolutely look forward with joy to see these rotten hardened sinners condemned by God for their rap sheet of crimes a hundred miles long!!!

What I'm saying in essence in this article, ladies and gentlemen, is to protect your own marriage! Music is proven by psychologists to be highly suggestive, which is what makes all forms of secular music potentially dangerous. The truth is that a certain percentage of fragile-minded people, or just strong people going through a weakened time in their life, are far more susceptible to the suggestive content in music's lyrics. I recently heard Pastor Jeff Owens mention Smucker's Goober peanut butter and jelly swirl in a sermon. Guess where I headed during the sermon? Yep, to the food pantry in my kitchen to make a strawberry Smucker's sandwich. And it was really good! It just proves the incredible power of suggestion. I wrote an article last year showing the dangers of alcohol being praised in music and television, that encourage teenagers to drink booze. Here's the article, The Deadly Deception Of Designated Drivers. George Strait has a staggering net worth of $300,000,000; yet, he cannot take one penny of it into eternity. Proverbs 13:7, “There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.”
