Taylor Swift surrounded by rosaries formed into question marks
Are there secret religious messages in Taylor Swift's lyrics?

Taylor Swift has hundreds of millions of fans around the globe. These "Swifties," as they're called, are known to speculate about many aspects of the star's life – as well as to draw inspiration and motivation from it. Her fame has only exploded in recent months, and she could very well be the single most influential woman on the planet today.

As Taylor's star power continues to grow, so does the scrutiny upon her. That speculation is increasingly turning toward her relationship with religion. 

So, what exactly does she believe? And are there clues to be found in her songs?

Upon a closer look at Swift's lyrics, we find numerous references to Christianity, big and small, which paint a portrait of a woman with a complex relationship with Jesus.

For some, that's a problem. 

Does Taylor Swift's Music Defy God?

Like Madonna a generation earlier, not all religious folks approve of Taylor Swift's music and its use of religious references. 

Despite Swift's (for-the-most-part) clean lyrics, some critics are cautioning their fellow believers about listening to her songs – arguing that they don't align with Christian values.

In particular, detractors point to songs like "Style" and "False God" as examples of Swift crossing the line with inappropriate lyrics.

Some even warn of idolatry, as young fans flock to her shows and display a more enthusiastic type of "worship" than they do for Jesus. 

Should Christians be hesitant to sing along to certain Taylor songs? 

What Does the Internet Say?

People of faith are torn between their love of Taylor's music and their love of God, and some have turned to the internet seeking advice. Here's what one Swift fan posted in the r/Christian subreddit: 

Hi everyone! I’m a fairly new Christian and I was wondering if the song False God by Taylor Swift is okay to listen to as a Christian. It’s one of my favorite songs, but ever since becoming Christian I can’t get it out of my head that I might be accidentally committing a sin by listening. It has lines in it like “We’d still worship this love, even if it’s a false god.” and “I know heaven’s a thing, I go there when you touch me honey, hell is when I fight with you.” I just want to know if it’s okay to listen to this and other songs that might be in this vain. Thank you!

"This is something that probably comes down to personal conviction. But I know I’d not be able to listen to this song. If you’re having to ask, you probably already feel like you shouldn’t be listening to it," one person wrote in response. 

"That would fall under idolatry and if I were you I would stay away from that song. But I do believe there are other Taylor Swift songs that are clean that also don’t preach a bad message that you could listen too," another added.

"I personally would leave that song out of my playlist because those lyrics are against Christianity," a third person offered. 

But not all Christians see a threat from Taylor's music. 

Bible Study (Taylor's Version)

Students at the largest Lutheran high school in the country, located in Las Vegas, have founded a Taylor Swift Bible study – perhaps the first of its kind.

The group meets once a week to discuss Scripture and how it relates to Swift's songs. “We take Taylor Swift song lyrics and we connect them to Bible verses and then we just talk about how they connect," one student explains. 

One recent example: Swift has a song lyric about “the Heartbreak Prince.” The Bible study group compared that reference to a quote from Isaiah 9:6, which says, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Cleary, not everyone sees the devil in her music. 

Decoding Lyrics

So, what's all the controversy about? Are these lyrics really that troublesome? 

Let's go song-by-song to decode the top seven hidden (and not-so-hidden) religious references in Taylor Swift’s music.

1. Christmas Must Be Something More

Lyric: “So here's to the birthday boy who saved our lives”

Interpretation: This 2007 Christmas tune, released when Swift was 18, illustrates a conventional relationship with Jesus. In the song, she says Christmas is about celebrating “something holy, not superficial." In other words, Jesus is the reason for the season. 

2. Style

Lyric: “I’ve got that good girl faith and a tight little skirt”

Interpretation: Swift appears to be juxtaposing the innocence of her faith with her flirty side – an expression of sexuality that some might oppose. 

3. Don’t Blame Me

Lyric: “Lord, save me, my drug is my baby / I’ll be usin’ for the rest of my life”

Interpretation: Swift is comparing the spiritual highs of faith and being in love with drug use, a metaphor that might not fly at youth group.  

4. False God

Lyric: Religion’s in your lips / Even if it’s a false God / We’d still worship / We might just get away with it / The altar is my hips”

Interpretation: Comparing worship to sexual encounters, this song in particular has been targeted by critics who argue it crosses a line. 

5. Soon You’ll Get Better

Lyric: “Holy orange bottles, each night, I pray to you / Desperate people find faith, so now I pray to Jesus too”

Interpretation: This 2019 song is believed to be about Swift’s mother’s cancer diagnosis. Fearing for her mother’s health, Swift admits she is only turning to Jesus out of a sense of desperation – hinting that her relationship with Christ has become fraught. 

6. Bigger Than The Whole Sky

Lyric: “Did some bird flap its wings ovеr in Asia? / Did some force take you bеcause I didn't pray?”

Interpretation: This 2022 song continues the themes of loss. Generally agreed by fans to be about a miscarriage, Swift searches for meaning as to why she must say goodbye to “what could have been.” Was it the butterfly effect, as the first line references, or because of a lack of faith? 

7. Would’ve Could’ve Should’ve

Lyric: “If you never touched me, I would've / Gone along with the righteous”

Interpretation: This song is supposedly about Swift's relationship with musician John Mayer – when she was 19, and he was 32.

Written when she was in her 30s, the song lays bare the emotional trauma this relationship caused – including damaging her faith in God.

What Taylor Swift Believes

What can we make of all this?

In these lyrics, we find a woman who grew up in the Bible Belt and initially held a relatively uncomplicated belief in God.

Indeed, that's still how she identifies. “I’m a Christian,” Swift declared in the 2020 Netflix documentary, Miss Americana – a rare statement of faith for a woman who has often kept her religious and political beliefs private. 

Over time, that relationship seems to have evolved, however. In her lyrics, Swift hints at struggling with her faith as she searches for those same spiritual highs in her romantic relationships.

As she gets older and life brings her personal tragedy, she reaches out, but sometimes finds her prayers unanswered.

What is your reaction? Do Taylor Swift's lyrics pose a threat to believers, as critics say – or could they actually be an asset for better understanding religious texts?

    OMG (gosh not god) LOL as a good guy - however a secular Buddhist find many Americans Christians to be the worst example of what Jesus was about - -he was about Love. To me the Bible is a Babble of myth - fiction and stories at best. Lets show some Love. I did a religion minor in college - I could go on and on but why should I waste my (and your) time. So I end saying SHOW SOME LOVE OF FELLOW HUMANS - - Shalom - Edward Calhoun

      Really? Love is not a Buddhist quality. The Buddha never said to embrace love as Jesus did. In fact, the former warns us against this emotion because that only leads to suffering.

      He did tell others to offer compassion, which apparently is not an emotion. Is your comment meant to confuse the two? Or is it a deliberate attempt to make Buddhism more acceptable to Westerners.?

    I can't believe people waste their time over whether God (or Satan) wants them to listen (or not) to Taylor Swift's lyrics. Reminds me of the late '60s when some incredibly stoned people swore they could hear "Paul is dead" in the Beatles' song "I am the Walrus". And of course the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil"--evil incarnate! And before that, there was Elvis, swinging his hips as he sang his rockabilly songs. Why not worry about something IMPORTANT & leave the musicians alone? If you don't like their music, change the channel.

      I played a Pink Floyd song from Momentary Lapse of Reason backwards for fun before I was a Christian. Maybe early 90s. Don't remember the song anymore. I was just playing around with a cd player and software I got for my kick butt 486DX pc. To my total surprise Gilmore very clearly says "Satan has built the walls around us". It surprised me because I heard backwards stuff and all the backwards stuff we hear about is always pro Satan.

        No, what that statement was about was that Satan has imprisoned us like unaware sheep. It doesn't mean that it is pro Satan. It's actually a warning about some things that we were fooled into not seeing until it is too late. He said that in an interview in Rolling Stone Magazine.

      Yet another example of why churches are loosing members. Denying a cultural phenomena doesn't make it less relevant. If you're trying to grow your outreach, speaking a common language means knowing how young people are interested and who they admire. Song lyrics are words. Taylor Swift's actions of compassion, charity and generosity are acts of Faith. What are yours?

        Oh, yes he did! "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" Then Jesus came back to him two years later and instructed him to go to Peter to be healed and have his sight restored. Silas guided him to Peter and the Gentiles received our evangelist in Paul.

          "There is no record of Paul meeting Jesus during his ministry, despite numerous accounts of encounters with Jesus by other influential figures like Mary Magdalene, the disciples, and even Saul (who later became Paul). Paul himself states in his letters that his knowledge of Jesus was obtained through revelation and not through personal encounters or teachings he received while Jesus was alive." Hope this helps...

      Based on healthcare records, people who have epileptic fits experience some sort of religious after-event feelings.

    Dunno, she may just be venting the normal things Christians go through.

    The secular world uses a book they don't understand or believe to judge in hypocrisy those that do. You can set your watch by it. You can trust that when Jesus said it would happen it will happen. And it does.

    For Taylor Swift's part she's at risk at falling from Jesus because of her wealth and power to become an idol and taking souls with her. That's between her, them and God.

    The chick does lay down some good tunes though.

  1. Rev. Rory's Avatar Rev. Rory

    I never believed in idol worship, even as a teen. Yes, I like some singers, bands and actors more than others. They are humans and it is their job to provide entertainment and to make money for themselves. It's a very well paying job and just because you sing well it doesn't mean that you have morals or beliefs that match someone else. It means that you have a decent singing voice or at least one that makes money. It means that you were born with features (your looks) that make you popular at a certain point in time (think Twiggy(60s) and Marilyn Monroe (50s) - very different, both became famous.)

    It is the media that builds people up and the same media that later tears them down. It's lazy reporting and lack of understanding by the media of the role of the media. People like Swift and the Olson Twins and Beyonce are business savvy. Good for them. It doesn't make me like them more or like them less. It doesn't make me think that they are a god or a devil. That is narrow, unimaginative, destructive thinking and frankly, usually aimed at females. Basically, I wish Ms. Swift well but honestly don't care what she does. Once in a while I enjoy her music. She has nothing to do with me, my spirituality, my family or my friends. She is a business woman and darn good at it.

Then read your sentence again as if someone said it intending to mean that exact word in the sentence. Then look up "concrete" in a dictionary, in the "adjective" subsection.

    Taylor Swift's music is for the most part happy, healthy, and honest. Psychology today even recommends listening to her music to help fight depression. When was the last time you spent time among Christians and left with positive feelings? It is always Bible thumping, finger pointing, talking bad about others, and not a drop of love mixed in anywhere. I for one would rather spread joy, love and happiness like Miss Swift does with her music. You are free to disagree, but I will just "Shake it off." ;)

    1. Farajallah Michael Yazbek's Avatar Farajallah Michael Yazbek

      Maybe you should go to an Orthodox Christian Church and see what POSITIVE Christianity is about. No judgement, no finger pointing, just personal relationships through worship and communion. It's very refreshing and leaves no bad aftertaste in the mouth. I like the way they worship personally and don't push it off on anyone else.

    To answer your question no. Taylor Swift's music is no threat to any real believer's faith. I'm not really a fan of Miss Swift but do enjoy some of her songs. The real danger here is those who choose to devote themselves to "worship" her. She has become an idol to many, but is no more dangerous than any one or anything that comes before God.

    1. Lionheart's Avatar Lionheart

      If people want to worship her, Lady Colleen, they are entitled to do so. At least we know she’s tangibly real, and she’s donated money to help those in need, which is way more than any of the worlds gods have done, including yours that you have convinced yourself exists.

      I agree with Colleen; those programmed by their Christian God, to worship only the Christian God (according to the Ten Commandments) should consider the following (according to the Thomas Jefferson Bible) “if one must worship something, worship the Sun, because the Sun (Christian Sun, or not) is the true source of all life on this Earth” — whether you like it, or not.

    Too much importance is placed on someone who, in many ways is a trickster for profit and power. Certainly not what I would call a role model for young women. But I also understand that a lot of men and women, (The Swifties), worship her for various reasons. The question The Monastery asks if if she is a threat. I believe the answer is yes, when you engineer yourself to be a praised idol, and then used your words as weapons. Actually, when you think of it, is here Swifties not in a broad sense a cult?

    I find it very informative that with all the song writers, poets, novelists and journalists that muse upon their or society’s relationships with the divine, many quite famous in their own right, that all this attention and criticism is being directed to a young powerful woman. Is it her rather non-controversial views that occasionally raise the ire of the judgmental right, or the threat posed by the power and influence of a woman, who in their view, is uniquely compromised by original sin, or prevented from having authority over men? As for idolatry, given the blind idolatry directed toward a certain former President, this rings more than a bit hypocritical.

    omg... really? My 'opinion'? Folks weren't looking for 'messages' or 'hidden meaning' to her lyrics... UNTIL she said that she supports our current president. And THEN, trump jumped in the game. (Vanity Fair 02-2024) "Trump wrote: “I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists. Joe Biden didn’t do anything for Taylor, and never will. There’s no way she could endorse Crooked Joe Biden, the worst and most corrupt President in the History of our Country and be disloyal to the man who made her so much money. Besides that, I like her boyfriend, Travis, even though he may be a Liberal, and probably can’t stand me!”

    Now folks are 'losing their minds' about hidden messages... The entire hoorah is politically motivated. To me, anything this asinine (extremely stupid or foolish) has to have been touched by trump. His 'rabid followers' just give him another thing to trumpet about... I am so over this weird adoration of this puerile (childishly silly and trivial) poser (a person who pretends to be what he or she is not).

    "TDS Syndrome?" (Trump derangement syndrome)? Nah. This old man knows a grifter and conman when I see one, not 'deranged' at all. Taylor Swift will bring trump millions, because folks will 'unite' their networks and send him even more money, to counter the demorats 'advancing their socialist agenda'. Ya just can't make this stuff up... I have perhaps 2 years to live (Stage-4 COPD) and I really hope that those years are trump-free...

    I like Taylor's understanding of ambiguity. We ALL have, and need, that in our lives. We are the ambiguous race. Something she is quite clear on is social participation, including getting youth out to vote. This scares the geezer white generation members who want to slow down or stop social change, refuse to see, sometimes, what is in front of them, and demand power OVER others. So I say, as a Minister and teacher, good for Swift for stepping up to ossified beliefs with your appreciation for, expression of, ambiguity. Old America needs a damn good kick in the pants (remember Nex Benedict's murder), and youth are the answer. WWJD? Rock along with a big grin, arms outstretched in welcome.

    For the most I don’t have an issue with her lyrics/words. There are a few songs I dont care for but honestly I dislike her style, and her way of dressing more than her words. But as a whole, she sends an entirely wrong message to children/young girls. If I had a say, my granddaughters wouldn’t be allowed her music. Religiously I have much more of an issue with a ‘friend’ of hers in her box at the superbowl. She was openly dressed as a devil worshipper and stood there flashing signs of Satan and flagrantly praying to the monster. If Swift has friends like this she’s definitely NOT anyone I want spreading her word in MY home or life!

    Hey, if kids are comparing her lyrics to biblical content, that means they're actually studying the Bible, doesn't it? Maybe it's time to sit down with these kids and actually help them understand what the Scriptures and Bible says compared to her lyrics. It's actually a great way to begin strengthening their spiritual compasses and morals. If her lyrics seem to cross the line for some, don't listen. But listen to her lyrics as her heart cries in pain and then reach out with a letter asking her to look deeper into her religious beliefs and help get these Swifties back onto a good and moral path. It does work, you know. And for those of you who are crying "idolatry," two words: Billy Graham. (Yes, I enjoyed going to his crusades when he visited the Texas Panhandle. I think he is one of the most prolific evangelists in history, along with Peter and Paul.)

    Who cares?🤪 It seems only those infected with the religion virus, particularly xtians, don’t understand that their nonsensical god also created the devil!👎 TS doesn’t have to conform to anyone else’s religious nonsense to be an excellent musician and person!

      If you don’t care and it is all nonsense why do you come here? Is it to just troll believers

    There are no secret messages in Taylor Swift's songs. Get a life...

    Music is a form of worship. Lucifer was a musician. In Job 38:7, it mentions “the morning stars” singing. Isaiah 14:11 is about Lucifer’s fall from heaven and it mentions the noise of thy viols. Music should always be to worship God. Using Biblical inferences to compare your fleshly desires to God’s love or anything of that nature is heretical. Taylor Swift creates songs that are in contradiction to God’s word. Teens and some adults dance in adulation to her. This isn’t a minor issue as some like to say. It’s a heaven or hell issue and I wouldn’t want anyone to go to hell for not knowing how Satan uses music to create his own worship.

      Paula, dear, King David was also a musician.

    Yeshua Ben Yusef drew a line in the dirt and cast a stone at the crowds feet and said "He without sin cast the first stone"!!! When speaking with the disciples on the nature of sin he said " See that woman over there, you desire her, you are already guilty"!!! And one more quote that all should take heed" Judge not lest ye be judged for as you judge so surely shall ye be judged"!!! When you point your finger 3 are pointing back at you "Father,Son and Holy Spirit" the important thing is that Taylor has confessed by tongue for all mankind (male& female alike) to hear that Christ is her savior!!! She's just a human with her own trials and tribulations, which she confesses routinely in her music!!!" The children understand this,why is it that you do not???
