The Game: I love Jesus and I love The Strip Club But Not Necessarily In That Order!

Before going on a sabbatical from church, I was a young adult Sunday School teacher  who had mad  love with a burning desire to teach young people about Jesus. When my hubby and I  return to the church world at the end of the year, I wish to resume teaching young adults. Anyway as a teacher of young adults I have found out "Illustrations"is  one of the greatest tools one can use in teaching young folks. I've learn that a well  Illustrated point is  not quickly forgotten by young people and  they love it.

So when I read the comment Compton rapper "The Game" made in an interview last month in Vibe magazine it  caused me as a Christian to stop and ponder just how my generation have manged to drop the ball in teaching and leading this generation to know  Christ.

Last year in August the game got baptized and started going to church, but still been kinda doing his own thing out in the world” the rapper told the radio personality. He explain why he change the name of his album F.I.V.E: Fear Is Victory’s Evolution to Jesus Piece and how he can't leave the trapping of the world.
 “I still love the strip club and I still smoke and drink. I’m faithful to my family, so I wanted to make an album where you could love God and be of God, but still get it poppin’ in your life.” “I’m a Christian but I’m not ‘holier than thou.’ You can still have swag and be a Christian, you ain’t gotta wear a suit to church, you ain’t gotta take a bath in Holy water,” the rapper told Vibe. “You can still have your Ciroc in the club, it’s just a faith thing and making sure you try to do right. I’m still a father, I still smoke, I still rep Compton, I still might shoot dice or have a fight if I have to defend myself.
