“Livin’ in sin is the new thing”

That’s a line from Britney Spears’ new song, 3.  I heard it one day on my way back to church from lunch and had to look up the lyrics to make sure that’s what I was hearing.  The lyrics are available here if you want to read them.  Let’s take a look at a few of the lyrics that she has in her song, shall we?

Are – you in
Livin’ in sin is the new thing (yeah)
Are – you in
I am countin’!

“Livin’ in sin is the new thing.”  Is that true?  For many, they would say that that is a true statement.  Our society has unofficially adopted that statement, as sin is something that is no longer frowned upon, but rather, promoted.  Our television shows openly endorse casual sex, sex without consequences, living together before marriage, sex before marriage, and the list goes on.  Sin is no longer sin.  Sin is now a morally accepted thing.  Their is no stigma connected to it, it’s as Britney says, “the new thing.”  It’s in, it’s happening.  Let’s take a look at another set of lyrics from her.

Three is a charm
Two is not the same
I don’t see the harm
So are you game?

This smacks in the face the 6th Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery.”  What is she saying here?  A two-person relationship is so yesterday, that a relationship needs to be three-person?  And as she says, she doesn’t see the harm.  Yes, there is a harm in this.  There is a harm even in a two-person relationship when it is not in the confines which God has given to us, a man and a woman, committed to one another for life.  Does that mean a guy and girl dating is sinful?  No, but when that dating guy and girl start doing things reserved for husband and wife, then that is sinful.  What Britney says above is sinful.  Finally, the last set of lyrics.

What we do is innocent
Just for fun and nothin’ meant
If you don’t like the company
Let’s just do it you and me
You and me…
Or three….
Or four….
– On the floor!

All of this is innocent?  If you don’t like it, then it’s just the two of us, or three, or four?  That doesn’t sound like innocent fun, nor does it sound like it is acceptable to God’s Word. 

The sad part about this song and it’s “theology” is that this is a “theology” accepted by society as a whole.  Now when I say that, I don’t mean that all morals have gone out the window, but we are moving further and further away from God and His Word.
