Sex Song Re-Written for God, Charimatics Applaud

Ed Sheeran wrote the lyrics to his now-famous song, Shape of You, and it became a hit on the secular airwaves. The song – in no uncertain terms – is about sex and erotic love. Here’s the link to its YouTube video (for your reference, but we don’t necessarily encourage you to listen).

Here are the lyrics (the hyperlinks explain the author’s meaning behind the lyrics, which – to save you time – all deal with sex):

[Verse 1]
The club isn’t the best place to find a lover
So the bar is where I go
Me and my friends at the table doing shots
Drinking fast and then we talk slow
And you come over and start up a conversation with just me
And trust me I’ll give it a chance now

Take my hand, stop, put Van the Man on the jukebox
And then we start to dance, and now I’m singing like

[Pre-Chorus]
Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me

Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don’t mind me

Say, boy, let’s not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me

Come on now, follow my lead
Come, come on now, follow my lead

[Chorus]
I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do

Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body

Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

[Verse 2]
One week in we let the story begin
We’re going out on our first date

You and me are thrifty, so go all you can eat
Fill up your bag and I fill up a plate
We talk for hours and hours about the sweet and the sour

And how your family is doing okay
Leave and get in a taxi, then kiss in the backseat
Tell the driver make the radio play, and I’m singing like

[Pre-Chorus]
Girl, you know I want your love
Your love was handmade for somebody like me

Come on now, follow my lead
I may be crazy, don’t mind me

Say, boy, let’s not talk too much
Grab on my waist and put that body on me

Come on now, follow my lead
Come, come on now, follow my lead

[Chorus]
I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do

Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
And last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body

Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Oh—I—oh—I—oh—I—oh—I
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

[Bridge]
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on

[Chorus]
I’m in love with the shape of you
We push and pull like a magnet do

Although my heart is falling too
I’m in love with your body
Last night you were in my room
And now my bed sheets smell like you
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with your body

Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I’m in love with your body
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I’m in love with your body
Come on, be my baby, come on
Come on, be my baby, come on
I’m in love with your body
Every day discovering something brand new
I’m in love with the shape of you

Have no fear, however, one woman has written the song to turn it into a worship song. And, charismatics are applauding it. Here it is below.

Her name is “Beckah Shae” and changed the lyrics slightly so as to apply them to the Almighty.

For example, the original song begins with “The club isn’t the best place to find a lover so the bar is where I go/Me and my friends at the table doing shots drinking fast and then we talk slow,” and Shae altered lyrics and sings, “The club isn’t the best place to find a lover, so to you is where I go. Me and my naked heart in Your presence getting wrecked drinking fast until I overflow.”

Gross.

That is actually a heresy called Theoerosism. It’s a bad thing. Look it up. God is not your boyfriend, lady.

The lyrics pretty much get worse from there. Heaven help us.
