Religious Page “Heartbroken” by Local Church Group That Danced BINI’s Salamin, Salamin; Calls It a “Witchcraft Song”

A local religious group is making waves online after it made a public post on Facebook accusing Filipino girl group BINI’s song “Salamin, Salamin” of being about “witchcraft.”

The page, called Follow Jesus Ministry, pointed out that the lyrics of the hit single referred to a magic mirror which many Christians condemn to be against the teachings of the Church.

“Ang pakikinig sa mga makamundong musika ay kadalasang maglalayo sa atin mula sa ating spiritual at moral values,” the page wrote on its post.

“Maari nitong maimpluwensyahan ang ating mga pagiisip at paguugali, protektahan po natin ang ating mga puso at isipan mula sa mga walang kabuluhang salita dahil ang mga salita ay espiritu. Maari ding ilayo nito ang ating mga puso mula sa Panginoon.”

It then said: “Let’s choose our music wisely to nurture our souls and to bring us closer to God.”

This comes after the page had criticized another local church group for posting a video wherein a few members danced to a remix of BINI’s “Salamin, Salamin.” Follow Jesus Ministry said it was “heart broken” that the church group would dance to “ungodly” music.

“It’s heart breaking to see this happening sa mga churches ngayon 💔😥 na imbis ang church maka win sa world. Ang world ang naka win sa church.”

“May mga music at sayaw po na ungodly.. please pastor ask for some discernment to the Lord,” they added.

They then warned others to be wary of religious leaders who say they see nothing wrong with listening to “worldly music.”

“Beware sa mga christian, preachers, pastors, ministers na walang nakikitang mali sa pakikinig ng mga worldly music. … Salamin² is a Witchcraft song. Please wake up church!” they ended.

The post, which was made on May 14, has since gone viral and many netizens have flocked to the comments either to agree with the group or criticize their statement. There are those who called it an “overreaction” while others explained that such music “can affect us spiritually without noticing it” and that we should “listen at your own risk.”

Previously, the page also garnered negative attention for alleging that SB19’s songs and music videos were “satanic.”
