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.

Pregnant Woman Could Face Laos Death Penalty.

Drug trafficking is illegal, I get it. But, this woman is pregnant and officials are talking about shooting her execution-style...CNN is reporting a troubling story from Laos, where a 20-year-old British woman is facing possible execution by firing squad. She is charged with drug trafficking, and is alleged to have been caught in possession of heroin at Wattay airport:

Samantha Orobator “is facing death by firing squad for drug trafficking,” said Clare Algar, executive director of Reprieve, a London-based human rights group.

Orobator, 20, was arrested on August 5, said Khenthong Nuanthasing, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman.

She was alleged to have been carrying just over half a kilogram (2.2 pounds) of heroin, Reprieve lawyer Anna Morris told CNN by phone from Vientiane, the Laotian capital. “For that amount of heroin the sentence is normally the death penalty,” she said.

Apparently Ms. Orobator has also become pregnant while in custody; one suspects that this is from being rape... If the charges are accurate, then Ms. Orobator’s foolishness in attempting such a thing will most likely cost her life...Al though good judgment at age 20 is exceedingly rare.. One has to imagine, though, given the circumstances, that there is probably much more to the story In any event, execution certainly is harsh...People need to know that a kilogram is about 2.2 pounds.
