Lyrical Theology Don't Waste Your Life!

Rap is not foreign to me,neither is the Word of God which is a two-edged razor sharp sword which cuts deep into the soul and heart of the sinner, and the redeemed...I have never embraced Holy- Hip- Hop because I have always put it in the same category as secular Hip- Hop and I was wrong for doing that. I repent of it and will not do it again in the future... without knowledge we fail to grow.

“Not being ashamed of the Gospel,” means more than verbally proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ; it means acknowledging and yielding to the power of the Gospel in every area of your life. When we accept Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, He frees us from our sin, so we may glorify God, and proclaim the Gospel with every aspect of our lives. We essentially lay our lives (self) down to serve and glorify God in thought, word and deeds... Lecrae and Desiring God Ministry have joined together to form a kinda of partnership than I never thought I would see.

I like the teaching of John Piper I see were he has linked up with rap music .it's one of the most beautiful picture of diversity I have ever seen...I am asking my self can I (The Black Church) handle the idea that when we worship God in heaven on that day that rap music may very well be a part of the worship service? Lecrae and others are calling this new rap music lyrical theology... What a beautiful picture to actually use music to communicate the gospel to a generation that is not hearing it through the same ol’ preferred style for me that would be hymns and contemporary music.

The “Don’t Waste Your Life” tour, presented by Reach Records and Desiring God Ministries, is making stops in major cities across the country over the next couple of months, challenging the younger generation to live passionately for Jesus Christ...The main message: shun seeking worldly joy and instead live lives dedicated to Christ.

Thankful (Thursday) Question? Why Want We Please God With His Talent?

What happen to the musicians who use to put God and church above money? Now the Black Church is left with keyboard players who really don't know how to read music. Have they abandon the Black Church for mega $$$$. Music is an essential element of the Black Church which relied on a steady stream of musical and religious talent. What happen to using music to develop and grow people, spiritually? Right now it is all about the band and the spotlighting the best voice. So instead of looking for people who have a heart for ministry, you look for the best musicians. And for them, it's just another gig. What Do You Think?
