‘Holy Spirit’ Church Has Blasphemous Taylor Swift Service


Taylor Swift’s music has found its home at The Church of the Holy Spirit.

As the Christian Post reported, the historic church in Heidelberg, Germany decided to have a worship service centered around the pop star’s music.

Pastor Christof Ellsiepen told Deutsche Welle: “The Church of the Holy Spirit has always been a place of encounter and exchange. That’s why a pop-music religious service fits so perfectly.”

Ellsiepen believes the event allowed for younger people to come out and ask questions and focus on issues concerning them.

“Theologically speaking, she points to the justness of God,” Pastor Vincenzo Petracca said. “For her, faith and action are inseparable.”

As the Christian Post also noted and can be seen in a photo by Deutsche Welle, the church included a rainbow sign which read, “Welcome all sizes, all colours, all cultures, all sexes, all beliefs, all religions, all ages, all types, all people.”

The church decided to focus on Swift’s music because of its themes on gender equality, racism and women’s rights.

According to the Independent, this experimental church service went so well with getting people in the doors that the church is planning to have both a Billie Eilish and Beyoncé service as well.

We are called to be in but not of the world. Using pop culture may get someone in the doors of the church, but it won’t give them the solace and the hope that their soul truly longs for. Only by sharing the true message of freedom found in the gospel can lives be changed.
