What did you mean exactly ? I'm not sure I understand what they gave then took back.
Whatever anyone wants to make of this bible verse, I believe it applies with what was called Beatlemania.
Galatians 5:19-21 - Living Bible (TLB)
19 But when you follow wrong inclinations, your lives will produce these evil results: impure thoughts, eagerness for lustful pleasure, 20 idolatry, spiritism (that is, encouraging the activity of demons), hatred and fighting, jealousy and anger, constant effort to get the best for yourself, complaints and criticisms, the feeling that everyone else is wrong except those in your own little group — and there will be wrong doctrine, 21 envy, murder, drunkenness, wild parties, and all that sort of thing. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
noun, plural idolatries.
1. the religious worship of idols.
(The Beatles were "bigger than Jesus").
2. excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc.
2. obsession, madness, mania.
I believe all rock music was brought to us to keep us in the lower consciousness centers, and when we engage in these behaviors, we are giving implied consent to the spiritual/ ethereal negative entities/ energies to inhabit us and pull us from our proper position. It is also being disclosed to us now that we who live in America have been giving "implied consent" all our lives to be U. S., Inc. citizens through being deceived, influenced, coerced, and conned, etc., which is how the Beatles got their foothold with us when we were youth. They started out in "sheep's clothing", which is how confidence men do their dirty-work.
You have not begun to appreciate the depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom of not merely the latest Great War, but of every other major revolution in your history. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone. ~ Marcus Eli Ravage, Century Magazine, February 1926.
(Reminds me of the Twilight Zone episode titled "The Howling Man".)
