Rap & Relijyon

Pou osi lontan ke mwen ka sonje, te hip hop te gen yon mani ak Bondye ak relijyon. Mwen pa vle di yo sijere ke tout rapeur yo fanatik relijye. Men, rapeur kèk - oswa nenpòt atis pou ki matyè - ka souke ankouraje a genyen ladan yo Bondye yon kote nan atizay yo. Li nan natirèl ak bon pou nou pale sou Bondye, men kesyon an se, kisa nou di? Gen kèk pral di, "Se jis mizik. pa pran li pou seryezman!” Men, sa ki yon rape di nan MIC la se pi plis grav pase ou ka panse.

Gen kèk te itilize hip hop eksprime sa yo panse kwayans sensè yo relijye oswa manke ladan l '. Islam, Senk Percenters yo, Krisyanis, agnosticism, ateism, ak lòt relijyon gen tout te ankouraje nan fòm nan atizay. Mwen panse ke hip hop se inikman ki ale ak eksprime lwayote ak devosyon nan anyen nou ap pasyone sou. An pati paske yo te inyorans irezistib kilti a ak an pati paske hip hop pèmèt pou plis mo, konsa ou ka aktyèlman "ap anseye yo.”

Men pi fò nan hop nan anch tan se plis tankou yon kwafè pase yon klas Lekòldidimanch. Rapeur enpridans kouri ale nan bouch la, si yo konnen ki sa yo ap pale de oswa ou pa.

senserite vs. enkonsyans

Gen kèk ki gen rim reflete yon sensè - menm si pafwa egare - rechèch pou ak lit ak verite. Mwen respekte ki. Youn panse nan Rasin yo ' "Chè Bondye 2.0,” oswa Kendrick Lamar nan "mouri nan swaf dlo”.” *Menm lè mwen dakò avèk sa yo panse a oswa konklizyon, Mwen renmen koute divagasyon sensè. Epi, se souvan deplase m 'nan lapriyè pou emcees ansanm ak mwen.

te Hip hop toujou te gen yon bò pi fonse menm si, kote atis trete Bondye ak relijyon ak mank respè ak ireverans. Rapeur sanble yo di tou sa mo santi dwa nan moman sa a - si yo aktyèlman kwè yo oswa ou pa. Ak nan yon "post-kretyen” nasyon tankou nou, sa yo atak ensousyan yo anjeneral ki vize a Jezi ak legliz li.

Natirèlman, gen kèk bagay - tankou ipokrizi ak lajan grangou "preche” - Ki merite yo dwe nan betiz. men, Malerezman, Bib la, legliz la, ak Bondye li menm yo souvan trete tankou karaktè ensiyifyan nan yon istwa fiksyon. mwen admèt, rapeur tande pale sou "ensolit” jèn ti fi nan koral la legliz fè m 'sumilye, men pa gen anyen lapenn m 'plis pase t'ap jwe Jezi li menm.

Anpil rapeur yo te rele tèt yo Bondye, mete tèt yo sou yon nivo avèk Jezi, epi yo gen boastfully pran non Seyè a pou gremesi. Yo te bati albòm antye alantou tèm relijye ireveransyeuz. Yo te itilize kreyativite Bondye ba yo a joure Kreyatè yo. Ki jan ironik.

Kòm yon disip nan Jezi, Mwen pèsonèlman vekse lè sa m 'tande, men plis pase sa Mwen pè pou yo menm ki te vonmi pawòl sa yo mal. Nou ta tout bezwen pè pou yon nonm ki ta krache nan figi a nan Prezidan an, men nou ta dwe menm pi pè pou yon nonm ki krache nan fè fas a Bondye Toupisan.

Reponn Avèk Grace

Se konsa, kouman mwen ta dwe reponn? Mwen te kapab kòmanse yon kanpay bòykote mizik yo. ou, kòm yon rape tèt mwen, Mwen te kapab ekri yon dosye diss trè sevè ozanviwon jou pou laj yo. Mwen pral kite ou deside si swa nan sa yo apwòch yo bon oswa yon move. men, onètman, Mwen pa panse yo ta fè anpil nan adrès pwoblèm nan reyèl.

Mizik la rapeur sa yo lage se yon refleksyon nan kè yo. Mo nou yo se toujou yon foto pafè nan sa k ap pase andedan nan nou. Èske w te janm trebiche pandan y ap kenbe yon vè dlo oswa ji? Tou sa ou gen nan glas la debòdman ki fèt sou soti sou tè a. Kòm nou tout konnen, gochri nou an pa pwodwi likid la, li jis montre nou sa ki nan nan glas la. Li nan menm bagay la ak pawòl nou. Lè nou pale, oswa rap, sa ki ekri nan kè nou se ranvèse soti. Lapawòl ak mizik pa fè nou peche, men li ekspoze sa ki nan nan kè nou ak lespri nou fèm (Matye 12:34).

Nan limyè de ki, koute kèk nan rapeur yo ki Leve kanpe, pran tèm relijye di m 'de bagay.

Premye, yo pa konprann kiyès Jezi ye. Si yo te fè, yo pa ta janm pale de li fason sa a. Natirèlman, yo konnen Jezi se te yon nonm jwif ki te kloure sou kwa de mil ane de sa. men,, yo pa vrèman konprann li.

Pa gen gason osinon yon fanm nan tèt ou dwa yo ta eseye mete tèt yo sou yon nivo ak pouvwa a absoli si yo se vre wi: konprann li yo dwe sa yo. Okenn moun pa ta mank respè li pa asosye l 'ak zak devègonde seksyèl oswa vyolans si yo konprann ke Li te Jij la p'ap janm fini an nan nanm yo. Yo pa t 'vle voye non l' alantou tankou Li se yon pèsonn pa epi trete non li ak légèreté sa yo ak mank respè.

Lè ou te se vre wi: wè Jezi, ou konprann ke Li se enprenabl. Lè ou vrèman konnen wa a, ou soumèt bay otorite li, ou pa defi li. Se konsa, konklizyon an sèlman mwen ka trase se yo ke yo pa gen pou wè li pou ki moun li se.

dezyèm, nou bezwen moun ki konnen Jezi yo pale moute. Pa sèlman nan chante ak posts blog, men nan tab la dine, nan boardroom a, ak nan sal klas la. Poukisa? Paske inyorans sa a epi ireverans se pa inik nan rapeur. atizay ensousyan se jis yon ekspresyon de li. Nou ap viv nan yon kilti bouche tou de nan verite a (2 Korentyen 4:4).

Ouvèti Je Avèg

Se konsa, si ou konnen Jezi, di zanmi w ak fanmi sa a verite a. Bondye ap pa t 'dwe toyed ak. Li se yo dwe adore, renmen, obei, ak jwi. Li se reyèl. Li rayi peche ki te voye Pitit li a fè lwen ak li. an reyalite, Pitit Gason l lan mouri, li pran pinisyon an pou peche se konsa nou pa ta gen yo. Bondye fè l 'leve soti nan kavo a pou nou te kapab viv avèk li pou tout tan.

Pase sa a Bon Nouvèl sou bay lòt moun! men, tanpri, fè sa ak favè. One Stop tap rele ke nan moun, epi yo kòmanse renmen yo. Si ou te wè Jezi pou ki moun li se, li pa paske ou se pi bon pase okenn moun. Li nan paske Bondye louvri je avèg ou. Priye Li ta fè menm bagay la pou zanmi w ak fanmi.

Men, si ou pa konnen Jezi, ou ta dwe jwenn yo konnen l '. Li se indescribably bon, ak plis pase merite pou yo devosyon nou an. Genyen pa yon sèl youn nan nou ki ka peye inyore Bondye oswa trete Pitit Gason l lan tankou jis yon lòt dude. letènite nou gon sou sa nou kwè sou Jezi. Apre sa, verite a se, si nou kwè nan li oswa ou pa, nou pral pase anba jijman dapre li.

Se konsa, sa ki nan Bondye nan yon nonbeliever ou mande? kreyatè, Sustainer, ak Jij. Men, si nou pral vire epi yo kwè - Sovè.

*Limit responsabilite nou: Mwen pa rekòmande ke ou koute chante yo mansyone pi wo a. Youn nan yo gen ak lang move ki pa pral dwe apwopriye oswa ki itil pou anpil.

    “Nou ta tout bezwen pè pou yon nonm ki ta krache nan fè fas a nan
    Prezidan, men nou ta dwe menm pi pè pou yon nonm ki krache nan fè fas a Bondye Toupisan an.” – Sa fraz se trè pwisan!

    Mèsi pou sa a Sòti a atik! Mwen vrèman jwi kretyen Hip Hop paske mwen toujou te santi ke lirikman li te gen pi plis kontni ak ansèyman pase nòmal mizik CCM lwanj.

    Iwonilman, Mwen pa janm te renmen eksklizyon Hip Hop paske nan konstan repete kontni an lirik nan fè sèks, dwòg, pwòp tèt ou ègzaltasion, elatriye. Ki te vre menm anvan menm yo mwen te vin kretyen.

    an reyalite, Mwen te grandi koute Punk wòch ak te toujou yon rokeur. Lè m 'jwenn kretyen Hip Hop, Mwen te renmen li! Zanmi m 'te stupéfyé ke mwen te koute Hip Hop depi m' te toujou nèm li, omwen Hip Hop eksklizyon.

    Kontinye fè gwo travay ou ak mwen va twò frè m 'lan! Pou tout bèl pouvwa Bondye a ak renmen anpil nou an Sovè Jezi! :D

      Hey Sòti a,
      Mwen dakò ke soti nan abondans la nan kè a bouch la pale, se konsa natirèlman mo sa yo nan chante yo ale nan dwe sou sak ap pase nan yon moun.
      Mwen ta tou renmen ajoute ke anpil mizisyen Peyi osi byen pale sou Jezi kòm yon moun yo ta bwè ansanm ak? Ummm yeah dwa si yo wè l 'yo ta vin enb epi yo pa ta panse anpil sou bwè. Oswa ou ta eseye kache soti nan devan je l '.
      Mwen ta renmen pataje sou isit la ak avèk ou ke mwen te rele pou pale ak moun sou lanmou li. Lespri li te di m 'ke li ta pale jete m' nan moun. Se mwen menm ki pa pafè ak mwen eseye rete unstained pa mond lan, epi yo ban mwen grandi tankou lòt kretyen tou.
      Mwen te vle pataje avèk ou kèk nan temwayaj mwen nan lòt bondye bonte nan lavi pwòp mwen.
      Mwen te toujou te santi mwen te kapab santi Bondye ap gade m 'menm jan yon jèn. Mwen ta chante l 'ak jwenn pèdi nan jounen an panse sou amou li. Lè m 'te 15 Seyè a literalman douch m 'ak renmen li ak Lespri Bondye ak mwen te resevwa Sentespri a jou sa a. te bouch mwen itilize pa Lespri Bondye a reponn kesyon sa ki te sou lòt moun nan chanm kè yo. Li pale avè m 'jete kè m' di m 'Li te vin viv nan mwen e yo ta pwoteje m' ak ta pale jete m 'lè lè a ki dwat. Mwen sonje lè mwen te nan klas 9yèm ane ak moun sa yo vin rive ak bwat fatra plen ak kapòt nan lekòl nou an. Robert E. Lee nan Tyler Tx. Yo te montre nou foto anpil ak deceases yo ke fè sèks ta pote. Yo te di nou yo ranpli lib yo ranpli moute ti sak mawon fatra nan kapòt epi pran yo si nou bezwen yo. Yo te di nou ke nou te kapab ale nan biwo a enfimyè epi pou yo jwenn gen kèk tou si nou pa t 'vle pran yo dwa Lè sa a,. Lè yo di,”Sèks se ranpli a pi byen sa ki ou pral janm ranpli.” Mwen leve kanpe nan-devan tout klas la klas 9yèm ak moun sa yo ak pwoklame. “Sentespri Pa gen Bondye a se bagay ki pi bon ou menm ak mwen ap janm ranpli.” Yo te gen lapolis eskòt m 'nan biwo a jouk apre yo fin yo fin gen jwèt. Mwen sonje yon elèv yo kèk te kanpe ansanm avè m 'ak te di li ki dwat. Sa a te nan konmansman an nan vwayaj mwen.
      Apre sa sou nan lavi m 'te nan yon apatman kote te gen bwè ak jwèt kat. Mwen sonje mwen te santi tankou mwen te bezwen kouri kote sa a sa a santi akable m 'nan kè m'. Mwen remake yon nonm sou yon machin karaoke te kòmanse di non mwen epi li pale bagay sa yo sou m 'ke mwen pa t' konnen ki jan li te kapab konnen. Mwen wè l ', li remake mwen te kapab wè kat kòn ap vini soti nan tèt li Mwen te mande zanmi m' si li te kapab wè sa ki te pase tou, li te reponn pa gen okenn, men sa li te santi alèz sou nou yo te gen. Mwen te konnen mwen te wè yon bagay espirityèl k ap pase Lè sa a,. Mwen te wè plis bagay razwa byen file dan ak ak grif, ak nan pwen sa a mwen kouri nan pòt la jwenn soti. Nonm lan sou machin nan karaoke rele soti nan yon fanm yo fèmen pòt la pou mwen epi yo pa kite m 'kite, li pa t 'kapab pou ale ak pou li kouri al pòt la, li kanpe nan-devan nan pòt la fèmen m' anndan. Mwen te nan chòk konplè nan sa ki te pase pwochen. Mwen te wè move lespri a ugliest posib vini mwatye fason soti nan nonm sa a tankou si yo devore m 'dwa gen, ak nan moman sa a yon bèl kouvri blan desann sou tout kò m 'ak nan yon moman move lespri sou la te pran vòl sa a soti nan kò nonm. Nonm lan pa t 'kapab kanpe epi diminuer desann pòt la nan yon pozisyon chita ak mwen te wè dlo nan je kouri desann figi l'. I was then able to open the door even with this man sitting in-front as easy as if he were not sitting there, and began to run as fast as I could out of this apartment complex.
      I at this point I felt as if I needed to ride my self from all the people in my life that would even consider to put me into a room with people that were demon possessed. And so I fought my way away from gangs and bad influences. I did not really give my whole life to God at this point and would like to add I am still in training in this area also. But for God to protect me in this way even though I was young and in need of so much mercy and grace, still baffles my mind to this day. His love is Amazing. I have only encountered one other demonic spirit to which I could spiritually see. I was driving down the hwy 155 and I noticed a car plate that saidVampireon it, as I passed the car I looked at the driver and saw a demon right there in the mans body. I speed up to get on down the road away from this one.
      Another example of God’s Protection in my life. When I was younger some time after I received the Holy Spirit I was riding in the back end of a pick up truck in Louisiana and it was me and three cousins all very young in the back and three cousins in the front. I felt the Spirit move me to sing He has the whole world in his hands, And I stood up and raised my hands to God. At that moment as my cousins in the back are looking at me like why is she singing that, my cousin who was driving was passing a truck to our right and we are in a curve and a truck was in the lane ahead coming straight on. My cousin who was driving said, “Dear God what have I done.and my other cousin in front said, “My God.and I was just lifting my hands to God and singing. I saw a beautiful rain-bowed hand slash cloud come down in an instant and remove the truck that was to head on collide with us. I remember seeing the truck behind us on down the road as if nothing had happened. When we got back to my aunts home my cousins said, “We would all be dead if not had Cherish been in the truck.they asked me what I was doing back there and I said singing hes got the whole world in his hands. My cousins and I are still in Awe of God for his protection of all of us that day. I told them it was not “m '” men “Bondye” who had protected us.
      This is just a couple of the many times God has protected me, showed mercy to me and kept me from harm.
      With all that said I hope this encourages someone out there, and Loving Jesus is not just aboutseeingsomething happen for we know Scripture says Blessed is the man who has not seen and yet still believes. And that is only a part of that scripture fyi. Anyways I wanted to share this and say I Love Jesus, I believe and testify to his protection,mercy, and Love. I want everyone to know our King has a wedding feast He is preparing for His beloved. We as His Church are his beloved and He wants you and me and anyone reading this to prepare themselves for His appearing, and to repent from there sins and follow Him. I Love your music Trip. It has blessed my life and others around me. I pray that you will continue to Put Matt 6:33 into practice and live a life testifying to our Kings goodness. I am so thankful for good beats with God loving words that I and my young family can enjoy as we wait upon Him. Cherish :) I AM UNASHAMED!

      Matye 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

    Talk about this rapper . He had aJesus walksvision in the Hip-hop industry as you have but what happened? “failedif you so to speak. What went wrong?…These are the questions you need to find answers to.

    Sitting back and analyzing What’s happening to Jesusimagewont change a thing. As a matter of fact that CANT alter Jesus’ JEZI!!.

    He was crucified by some bunch of cheap Romans soldiers and that even led to the prove that He Jesus is God after He Resurrecting.

    Go get a record deal from YMCMB and Preach the Truth in a raw manner, and see whether you will survive as a rapper.say what the world wants to hearbusinesssmh

    They are so use to the world and it systems: Getting money, fornicating, elatriye. to the extend that even if Jesus manifest Himself physically to them today, they will unconsciously slip back into there old ways later.

    You can easy destroy a tree at it nursing stage but not when it has fully established as a Timber.and the only way to get rid of a Timber completely is by destroying it root.

    So do what you ought to do to destroy the root of the problem as asavedbeing. Tell the world what they’ve not heard before.. A material proof of JesusExistence, Power and Glorynew light

    Some friends of mine recently commented that the best way to recognize falsehood is by learning to recognize truth; I think that wisdom applies here. One could go about creating a campaign against this godless music, but even better is to keep producing God-centered music.

    I’m not much of a rap fan myself, but I am tremendously grateful that there are individuals such as yourself who are serving as a sort of indigenous missionary and reaching into that culture with the love of Christ.

    OK. it is time forChristian rappersto mock their (world) god(satan). its as simple as that.

    If you think our Jesus is being disrespected/mocked then you rappers are in the best position to also render their satan powerless by insulting/disrespecting satan the hard way twice.

    When I was if the world, I was a heavy hip hop enthusiast because of the artistic creativity and mainly because of content. Listeners gravitate to words that appeal to the heart. Se konsa,, in essence, as long as there are darkened hearts, there will be those that gravitate to the message. This article just serves notice on us who believe becausewe are made to light it up a city on a hilltopand we want people to ‘hit us up when they feel lostSO that we can navigate them tithe savior.

    I love the thought process of Mr. Lee, I’ve been a follower of Trip from the jump, When he asked the question “Se konsa, kouman mwen ta dwe reponn? Mwen te kapab kòmanse yon kanpay bòykote mizik yo. ou, kòm yon rape tèt mwen, Mwen te kapab ekri yon dosye diss trè sevè ozanviwon jou pou laj yo. I’ll let you decide whether either of those approaches are right or wrong.I think a response with a diss record is very appropriate, I see it as an opportunity to do exactly what David did to Goliath. He had the chance to shut the mouths of the one who was speaking against his GOD. Now with the influence and the amazing GOD giving talent Trip has, I see it as a golden opportunity to Infiltrate the Industry.
