Have American Christians gotten so open minded that their brains have fallen out? It was just reported that a drag queen made the top of the Christian music charts. Did Christians do this?

No, thank God! It was, in part, a backlash against this tweet by Sean Feucht ““If you’re wondering the end goal of the deconstruction movement in the church, then look no further than former worship leader @derekwebb’s new collab with a drag queen. These are truly the last days.”

So what is really going on here?

According to Paste magazine this is what caused the rush: “In response to that missive from Christian musician and failed Congressional candidate Sean Feucht sent out to his 100,000 followers, fans made one of those collaborations, “Good Day,” hit the top spot on the Christian iTunes chart briefly last night. The album it’s on, Flamy Grant’s Bible Belt Baby, still sits at #1 on the album chart.”

Itunes is Apple. You know, that company that produces the best products Chinese children can make. They are also patently anti-Christian. They are the ones who chose the category for Flamy Grant’s song.

This is staged to make it look like the deconstruction movement (more on this later) is gathering steam in America. It is a George Soros-esque stunt.

I am not saying that Christian music is not corrupted. Too much of it certainly is.

I am not saying that Christian music is not corrupted. Too much of it certainly is.

Christian concerts that sell tickets for up to $2,000 are not—in my mind—Christian at all. They are a money grab. Period. And the documentary on Hillsong did not help the case for modern Christian music.

But Flamy Grant is not a case against Christian music. It is a tactic against the Church and the Word of God. Do not fall for it!

Let’s expose this insidious weapon. We will quote them in their own words and their own words will condemn them.

Flamy said ““I grew up super evangelical, fundamental in the Bible Belt,” Blake (aka Flamy Grant) says. “I was a worship leader up until last year really, the last decade in more progressive churches. I’ve always been interested in drag, but as a kid, I didn’t know it was drag. I just liked my mom’s clothes. It got pushed out of me. I realized that if I’m going to belong in that [Christian] community, I’d have to suppress it.”

Okay, so here is what wearies me: people who have had bitter experiences in church and then take it out on those who are totally innocent. There is nothing heroic about that. Why not make a clean break and at least be a sincere atheist? Why do you have to undermine the faith of young impressionable believers?


But Flamy Grant is not a case against Christian music. It is a tactic against the church and the Word of God. Do not fall for it!

Here’s the deal: according to some statistics the number of Gen Z who claim to be gender fluid has jumped 9,000%. Wait, what?  How is that possible? What is in our water?

Of course there is a fad! A lot of this is peer pressure. Many of these inflated numbers are the result of normal adolescent needs for acceptance. In other times it was clothes and hairstyle. Now you can get attention and sympathy simply by talking about your gender dysphoria.

And gender dysphoria is real and we need compassion for that. But it is cruel and short-sighted not to offer the power and love of Christ for that need. Especially when you consider that according to medical studies “transition procedures” have not affected suicide rates.

But it also wrong to stop parents from trying to talk sense in their own children  who are merely following a dangerous fad.

And gender dysphoria is real and we need compassion for that. But it is cruel and short-sighted not to offer the power and love of Christ for that need.

Dylan Mulvaney on a Bud Light can was not a backlash against transgender people. It was a backlash against a man who is a total fraud and everyone knows it. There is no hero there. He actually complained that Bud Light did not get back to him after he cost them a $24 billion loss. Oh brother.

The whole idea that there is a witch hunt is ridiculous. If you want instant backlash attack a transgender person. There is not a more protected minority than transgender. There is not a more celebrated announcement that you can make than to say you are changing gender.

The real trend is to lavish praise on them. Joe Biden proved this on the White House lawn when he said the unimaginable to a transgender group: “these are the bravest people I have ever met.” He said this within earshot of the Arlington National Cemetery. Where tens of thousands of brave Americans are buried—soldiers who gave their lives for their country.

You are not a hero because you are willing to don a dress.

This top of the “Christian music charts” is anti-Christian. That says it all. That tells you everything.

They continue to quote Jesus and use Him as a model for their nefarious mission. All the while they know that they are not rescuing anyone. They are simply getting revenge for their suppressed life while they were in the church by going after innocent youth.

Flamy sings the last verse: “I heard Jesus loved and spent his life with those who / Were abandoned by proud and fearful men / So if a church won’t celebrate and love you / They’re believing lies that can’t save you or them / ‘Cause you’re so beautiful by any name.”

They are simply getting revenge for their suppressed life while they were in the church by going after innocent youth.

Flamy is the one of those proud and fearful men he speaks against. Jesus accused the Pharisees saying, “You disregard and neglect the commandment of God, and cling [faithfully] to the tradition of men.” Mark 7:8

These artists know what Jesus taught. In Mark 10:6 Jesus said, “But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’” Jesus believes there are only two genders. These artists do not. They are putting a trend above truth and they know it. That makes them the modern day Pharisees. They cannot use Jesus for their demolition derby against the Church.

They are putting a trend over truth and they know it. That makes them the modern day Pharisees.

Here is the bottom line: This glitter storm of deception was predicted. Using fake I.D.s for access to church was foreseen. 2 Timothy 3: 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

Indeed turn away from this nonsense. This is Satan—knowing his time is short—pulling out every last trick he has.

        • Kay

          So grateful for the courage of young men like Sean Feucht and for the unity
          developing intergenerationally among the ekklesia. Loved the last fire& glory and living proof crusade.

    • Sheri Burnett

      Transgenderism repulsed me to the core! I can’t believe people can actually believe they’re living for God! We are absolutely in the last days! Come, Jesus come! I fear for my grandbabies.😞 Thank you Mario! Miss you on Flashpoint!💗

    • FrancesEve

      AMEN and AMEN.

    • phil beatty


      • Rhonda

        May God keep speaking through you and give you the strength to fight the battle all the way!

  2. Angela Vines

    Thank you for being a watchman on the wall and making the body aware of the enemies tactics. I appreciate the boldness and direct truth black and white… no time for nonsense it’s time for a resurrection of John the baptists … repent!

    • Annette Vickery

      Unimaginable and quite frankly insidious.

  3. Victoria Ferris

    Agree totally, this is another sad and dangerous plan of Satan. To confuse and lie … It’s taking many children down a slippery slope and they NEED is believers to guide them back to His loving arms!! We must come together and fight for our children!!

    • Rebecca Velez

      Flamy Grant needs to get its mind ready to face the flamy eternal lake of fire 🔥 if it doesn’t repent . Smh 🤦‍♀️

    • Nate

      As someone who came out of homosexuality and cross dressing (I’m now married to a godly woman and we have three anointed daughters), I can assure you it’s more than peer pressure, trends, and even spiritual warfare. For the past 80+ years, the medical system has been experimenting on us. They have been murdering babies, taking tissue and DNA from the murdered baby, and injecting them into healthy children through v@ccines. What happens when you inject a murdered baby girl into a healthy baby boy? Hello! Where is the outcry against the medical system? Parents thought they were following wisdom, but they were following sorcery of Babylon. The modern medical system is pharmakeia – sorcery. We have to repent for letting them experiment on us, and reject their sorcery if we want to see a full turning. It’s been injustice for decades and we keep drinking their medical kool-aid. Who is pushing for tax-payer paid trans surgeries? The medical community. There is so much confusion in the youth now because they have been amping up the number of shots they give our children over the last twenty years. We are watching what happens when you give the kids to sorcerers. Who’s going to start talking about this side of the trans movement?

      • Sunny

        Amen! Perfect. Thank you, Nate, and God shine on you greatly!!

      • Caroline

        Thanks for speaking up! Most don’t know this!

      • Gail Segars Rainey

        I couldn’t have said it better, Nate!!! I have been fighting pharmakeia the majority of my adult life (I will be 73 in November). I find much comfort in the international prayer calls with Dr. Billye Brim on Wednesdays If you aren’t a part of this, all information and archives are on billyebrim.org. Continuing to pray for Mario Murillo Ministries!!!

      • John G Cowper-smith

        You are right on!

      • Diane

        Nate, thank you! I never put that together: the DNA confusion potentially caused by this experimentation via vaccines. Wow. Eye opening..
        So glad to hear your beautiful testimony. Thanks again.

  4. Dan Schulz

    Transgender is nothing more than homosexuality. Almost all homosexuals were molested as children by someone of the same sex. It’s a spiritual issue. They are victims who need deliverance. Many have experience this. Jesus loved them not only paid for their Salvation but also for their freedom.

    • Ron Rupp

      Many who say they were raised in church means nothing, I can stand in a garage but that doesn’t mean I am a car..going to a building once or twice a week isn’t giving you a prayer life,a study to show yourself approved, a renewing of your mind…WE ARE THE CHURCH AND GOING TO A BUILDING, especially what is being, or should I say, not being fed from the ,I want your money, pulpit

    • Patrick Fisher

      Nailed it!

    • FrancesEve

      Totally agree.

    • Melvin Rosa

      Share the gospel, pray and stand for truth!

  5. Ron witham

    Thank God for moving in 2023 you are doing your part. Coming to Seatle Washington Portland Oregon?

  6. David Mastel

    Pride is alway at the forefront of failure. It doesn’t matter what causes the pride even it is possible with religious attitude. So, what if when we actually fall on our faces and humble ourselves before the God who made us and sees all we will have a chance at a message that can penetrate hardened hearts. II Chronicles 7:14 calls the people that know Him to humble themselves, those that are called by His name, repent and pray and turn from our wickedness, then and only then will He step in and heal our land! May we be that people LORD, how we need You!!

    • FrancesEve

      AMEN David Mastel. We need to CRY OUT to GOD in REPENTANCE.

  7. anita Garcia

    Mario all I can say is you nail it, and Thank you for speaking the truth.

  8. Juanita

    Stay true to God’s Word and everything else will come out in the wash. Let God be true and every man (deceived) be a lie, in Jesus Name, Romans 3:4, Amen. They can make up every kind of excuse imaginable to gain sympathy, but God’s Word will prevail on the plans of man,, Proverbs 19:21.

  9. Dr. Gary L. Smith

    This is an excellent article and truly shows Satan constantly working his evil and destructive ways on society. What’s been happening in recent times, demonstrates bizarre conduct on behalf of a portion of society.

  10. Rapture Cat

    Well Said Mario! He is coming quickly, and every eye shall see Him.

  11. Cliff

    I agree. It is a move of an anti-christ spirit.

  12. scott MacPherson

    Amen!! Just another pathetic last minute, Last Days power grab from the king of egos, Satan himself. Don’t go down with HIS ship! Stay clear of it! JESUS is LORD!!

  13. Angela Williams

    Very well said and you nailed it. Thank you for standing up and speaking The Truth and the Only Truth. The Word of God is non negotiable. Praying and Standing with you!

  14. Mario

    Thank you Mario for speaking up. God bless you in all that you do for the Kingdom of God.

  15. Ron S.

    Years ago in the mission field we were visited by a youth group led by youth pastors who are close personal friends. In the field where locals don’t have the luxury Americans have of medicating people into a stupor and evil spirits into submission, you’re often faced with the task of casting out demons. Our pastor friend objected to this Biblical mandate by saying: “Just love them like Jesus.” Sounded good… Certainly less messy & much easier to do. The tragedy was that at least a couple of the children in these lovely pastor’s charge were in severe spiritual bondage.
    I asked the Lord about it, and He said something emphatically to me that has always stayed with me: “IF YOU LOVE THEM, SET THEM FREE!”
    So, we did.
    I think some of our challenge with today’s crop of spiritual prisoners is we do NOT love them because so many Christians are content to leave them in bondage. That’s what I live about your ministry brother Mario… Your love for these lost shines every time one is set free in your tent. See you in L.A.!
    Live & Blessings

  16. Philip Paul DeVries

    Thanks for your timely word dear brother. What is being unambiguously manifest is the relentless retrograding of humanity by forces of darkness whose intent is get as much company as possible to share that darkness. Nothing beats being renewed by the “transformation” of our minds through the pristine clarity of God’s holy Word, empowerment by the Holy Spirit and a clear mission to win the lost at any cost. Jesus is coming – let us get ready to meet and greet Him.

  17. Ruth Ann Maloney

    In graduate school I learned about Erickson’s psycho-social stages of development. Mid to late teenagers often have something he called “identity vs. role confusion.” They are in the process of figuring out who they are. What is going on now is a vast expansion of that encouraged and blown out of all proportion by the dark side, the enemy. “we fight not against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities…” Keep on fighting!!! Thank you for obeying God’s call.

  18. Jackie H

    The truth you speak needs to be heard and we read it and watch it on tv. My husband and I give God all the glory and thank him for what you are doing Mario. Is there any chance you will ever make it to Oregon (Eugene or Portland)? Our cities need a tent revival and I believe that God will be heard. Please consider doing your tent revivals in Oregon and Washington. Thank you and blessings to you and all you are doing

    • Dana

      What radio stations are these songs?

  19. Mike Briglia

    The devil and his minions can go to hell, now.

  20. Wesley Love

    18# For the wrath of God l is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19# For what can be m known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20# For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, 7 in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21# For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22# Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23# and exchanged the glory of r the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
    24# Therefore s God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25# because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
    26# For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27# and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
    28# And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29# They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30# slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31# foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32# Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.


    I trust Mario as someone who cares about what God thinks not people. But, my heart goes out to all the millions of hurting kids who are being deceived by this. They are committing suicide in record numbers and they need every Christian praying and working hard for them.
    These hurting kids (not the flamboyant anti-God ones) are exactly who Jesus died for and should not be abandoned by us. Just my opinion. Thank you Mario for everything

    • Lori

      Even more so the flamboyant anti God kids. They are the hardest to reach and have broken heart parents.

    • Laude Hays

      Right on Eric

  22. Bob Klen

    The world just has a messed up view of the word Love. Love as Christ has for us, sometimes is telling us exactly the opposite of what we want to do. Love is obedience to Gods Word and law. You are correct Mario, just one of the many ways Satan transforms himself in to an angle of light to deceive and destroy. Of course these people have been deceived by their fake love Pastors too. All talk no action! Therefore they don’t know any difference and we need to keep praying for them so that they would repent and come to the real Jesus.

  23. soljerblue

    Like Martin Luther, Mario, you nail the truth with mighty strokes to the doors of our churches — even if they wish not to hear. But the truth is getting its boots on, as some who have fallen into the trap of gender dysphoria are coming forward with their stories of permanent disfigurement — physical, emotional and psychological.

  24. Richard Rosier

    I tell many that you are the real deal. I’ve been to your crusades in cal. I have seen Gods healing power demonstrated and The precise word of knowledge spoken. I’m looking forward to being in another crusade someday.

  25. Thora Evans

    God has gone on record that He hates a mixture. 50% truth and 50% error is the worst most deceptive and dangerous lie. Don’t fall for “another Jesus”. You nailed it again Mario. God bless.

  26. Ed Lesser

    Mario, As followers of Jesus Christ
    And we see all of the sin and
    wickedness in this world there is
    one thing we as individuals must
    do. That is not just express our
    Thoughts to each other, But to
    Step out into the place God has put us and tell of the Good News
    of the Gospel. Many do not because of fear. If that same Spirit
    that raised Jesus from the Dead lives in you, He will give you the power and the words to speak of
    Your Testimony. Jesus said Go!@

  27. Cristina Conlon

    I pray the blood of Jesus over you and your family Mario. Thank you for your obedience to speak the truth. May God Almighty continue to bless your ministry. We are defenitely living in the last days.Glory be to God!

  28. Donna Gragg

    Thank you for clearing all this up. I never heard of Flamy Grant. But, you succinctly clear up all the “stuff” for someone like me who does not like to sift through the current muck and try to filter out the truth. That is one thing I love about you Mario. No sifting necessary-you do the sifting and just put out the truth. 🙂
    I know the truth when I hear it. Thank you.

  29. Robert James Davis

    In response to the one image: Their backward views are older than Sodom. When will they realize thay are the backwards people?

  30. Eric Moon

    In total agreement.
    Excellent truth! Well put Mario!

  31. Kevan Prati

    Thanks, Mario.
    Almost all of us know that God the Father said He made mankind male and female in Genesis Ch. 1 and 5, but you have faithfully pointed out what many of us didn’t remember, and that is that Jesus the Son also said it on Mark 10:6.
    The Holy Spirit also announces it to anyone who will repent from their moral relativity and embrace the moral absolutes and pure love of our creator God.

  32. Jeff R

    “They’re believing lies that can’t save you….”
    This lyric says it all about them and their movement, calling the everlasting gospel a lie, and therefore calling is author a liar. This is the spirit of antichrist at work.

  33. Sandra

    So glad to hear and read of someone taking a stand against this abomination to Jesus my sacrifice to deliver me from sin and satan’s snares. Yes it is getting worse because satan knows the signs of the time and that his evil reign is almost over but he wants to take as many with him as he can because he hates them! Why do people not search for themselves what is true and not is not! Man is evil especially if they have lots of money like Soros and Gates. Just saw a documentary about an evil man in Tokyo back in the 90’s that did awful things to hundreds of women killing one from England and another from using chloroform on her and she had a reaction to it. Nice looking man they out with and very wealthy from inheritance. Spending the rest of his life in prison now. Be sure your evil will be revealed .And just read a prophetic word given to Lance Wallnau about God giving Trump one more term in the White House and then turning America over to the anti-christ! So yes we are living in the last days, like the WORD says we may not know the day but we can know the signs of it’s nearing, so we must let the people know to repent or choose for themselves , heaven or hell eternally. If all my loved ones don’t repent, thank GOD he will wipe them from my memory! Otherwise it would not be heaven. I cry now for my lost loved ones and pray that those gone on made it in.

    This passage from Isaiah is very telling of how God knows the very times we live in and He knows exactly when, where, how deep mankind will take their perversions.

    Isaiah 13:9Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
    Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger,
    To lay the land desolate;
    And He will destroy its sinners from it.
    10For the stars of heaven and their constellations
    Will not give their light;
    The sun will be darkened in its going forth,
    And the moon will not cause its light to shine.

    11“I will punish the world for its evil,
    And the wicked for their iniquity;
    And will lay low the haughtiness of the [e]terrible.

  35. Laurie Van Wyckhouse

    That was informative, Mario…thanks!
