Dont copy the behavior of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing

the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good
and pleasing and perfect his will really is. Romans 12:2, NLT
Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are
controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. If your sinful nature
controls your mind, there is death. But if the Holy Spirit controls your mind, there is life and
peace. Romans 8:5-6, NLT
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-think about
such things. Philippians 4:8, NIV
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds
should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 2 Corinthians 11:3
Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word. Psalms
119:37
We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift
away. Hebrews 2:1
So be careful how you live. Don't live like fools, but like those who are wise. Ephesians 5:15
Watch out! Don't do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward
from your Father in heaven. Matthew 6:1
I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me.
Psalms 101:3
A perverse heart shall depart from me; I will not know wickedness. Psalms 101:4

Women have begun to appear in rap lyrics more than often depicted in a way that creates them to
appear as though they are sex objects and not real people. This harms women in our culture because it
makes them feel that their only purpose in any relationship is to please their male partner and submit to
his desires because if they dont, they are worthless in the eyes of a man. This of course is not true of
most every man but such suggestive lyrics portray it as so. This is degrading to all women and can give
them a skewed outlook on how a healthy relationship should be with their significant other.
This causes women to be less empowered and in control of their own destiny because they feel that in
order to be important and wanted by a man, they have to give all control to the man. Women feel that
in order to be loved they have to do exactly what the man wants and their desires and pleasures are
meaningless.
I promise to not pursue such songs while residing in this household. I will strive to look for songs that are
not demeaning of the female gender. I will listen to songs that portray a positive outlook for women. I
promise to pursue songs that will uplift my character and make me feel better about myself.
