Question by Shipmaster Liam: Christians: Query about rapping?
Okay. So I’ve asked two other queries about this nowadays, but no a single seems to be understanding, so I’m gonna say it as plainly as attainable:
I rap, but I’ve observed 1st hand the unfavorable effects of drugs, alcohol, premarital sex, hatred, and so forth. Consequently, although I could occasionally use a “foul word”, the common message of all my music is to get away from all those negative items, and that you can still be cool when you do. I DO NOT promote undesirable items, although I mention them. In reality, I lately wrote some lyrics exactly where I do the opposite, and promote DROPPING these negative factors. Nonetheless I did use the “F word” a few times in it. I really feel that the greatest way to get to people who live those lives is to speak to them in a way that is not “holier than thou” and that they will realize and relate to. Then when they say “Hey, this guy actually isn’t obtaining down on me” they’ll listen to the genuine message, which is “Get away from those poor items.”
Additionally, I have Jesus in my heart as my Lord and Savior, I enjoy God and Jesus with my whole heart (best example, even though I rap and use foul words occasionally, the “principal point” is to get other people to walk away from Satan and love God and accept Jesus as properly).
I ALSO try to “bear good fruit” BESIDES loving Jesus and God. I donate to my church, volunteer there all the time, I do charity function, I have a weblog that attempts to aid individuals along their journey to God, I pray numerous times a day, and I actually aspire to develop a church some day.
Contemplating ALL of this, do you assume MY raps, by the description I gave, are “evil” and could land me in hell?
Answer by tiffi
if you feel rappin is gonna land u in hell, then u possibly dont recognize the which means of the gospel in the initial spot. “whosoever BELIEVETH in Him — should not perish, and so forth..”
but to answer ur query, i dont feel folks are evil for rapping. i think thats a great technique and that men and women need to quit getting so closed-minded and realize that God functions in mysterious methods. If its for good and intended to glorify Him i say its all excellent.
