RAP & reliġjon

Sakemm nista tiftakar, hip hop kellu ossessjoni ma 'Alla u r-reliġjon. I ma jfissirx li jissuġġerixxu li rappers kollha huma Devoti reliġjużi. Iżda ftit rappers - jew xi artisti għal dik il-kwistjoni - jista 'ħawwad il-iħeġġuhom biex tinkludi Alla x'imkien fl-arti tagħhom. Huwa naturali u tajjeb għalina biex jitkellmu dwar Alla, imma l-kwistjoni, dak li aħna ngħidu? Uħud se ngħid, "Huwa biss mużika. M'għandekx teħodha tant gravi!” Imma dak Rapper jgħid fuq il-mic huwa aktar gravi minn inti tista 'taħseb.

Xi użaw hip hop biex jesprimu t-twemmin reliġjuż sinċier tagħhom jew in-nuqqas tagħha. Islam, Il Ħames percenters, Kristjaneżmu, agnosticism, atheism, u reliġjonijiet oħra ġew promossi kollha matul is-forma ta 'arti. Naħseb hip hop huwa unikament adattati biex jesprimu lealtà u devozzjoni lejn xi ħaġa li aħna qed passjonat dwar. Parzjalment minħabba l rawness konvinċenti tal-kultura u parzjalment minħabba hip hop tippermetti għal aktar kliem, B'hekk inti tista 'attwalment "jgħallmu.”

Iżda l-maġġoranza tal-hip hop ħin huwa aktar simili barbershop minn klassi il-Ħadd Iskola. Rappers imprudenti run off fil-bokka, jekk ikunu jafu dak li qed jitkellem dwar jew le.

sinċerità vs. imprudenza

Hemm xi wħud li rhymes jirriflettu sinċieri - tfittxija għal u jissieltu ma verità - għalkemm kultant żbaljat. I-rigward li. One thinks of The Roots’ “Dear God 2.0,or Kendrick Lamar’s “Dying of Thirst”.” *Anke meta ma naqbilx ma assunzjonijiet jew konklużjonijiet tagħhom, I igawdu jisimgħu wanderings sinċieri. U ħafna drabi jiċċaqlaq lili biex nitolbu għall Emcees kollegi tiegħi.

hip hop dejjem kellu ġenb jiskuraw għalkemm, fejn l-artisti jittrattaw Alla u r-reliġjon ma diżrispett u irreverence. Rappers jidhru li jgħidu dak kollu kliem jħossu dritt fil-mument - kemm jekk fil-fatt jemmnu lilhom jew le. U f ' "post-Kristjana” nazzjon bħal tagħna, dawn assalti imprudenti huma normalment mmirati lejn Ġesù u l-knisja Tiegħu.

Dażgur, hemm xi affarijiet - bħal ipokrisija u flus bil-ġuħ "jippridkaw” - Li jistħoqqilhom li jiġu mocked. iżda sfortunatament, -Bibbja, il-knisja, u Alla nnifsu huma sikwit ittrattati bħal karattri insinifikanti f'dan storja finzjoni. jien nammetti, rappers smigħ jitkellmu dwar "freaky” bniet fil-kor tal-knisja jagħmel me cringe, iżda xejn grieves me aktar minn mocking Ġesù nnifsu.

Ħafna rappers talbu huma stess Alla, iqiegħdu lilhom infushom fuq livell ma 'Ġesù, u boastfully ħadu l-isem tal-Mulej fil vain. Huma ħadthom mibnija albums sħaħ madwar temi reliġjużi ireventi. Huma ħadthom użati kreattività Alla mogħtija tagħhom insult Ħallieq tagħhom. How ironic.

Bħala segwaċi ta 'Ġesù, Jiena personalment offiż minn dak Nisma, iżda aktar minn dak jiddispjaċini ngħid għal dawk li spew dawn il-kliem blasphemous. Aħna lkoll ikunu jibżgħu għal raġel li ntlaqgħet bżiq fil-wiċċ tal-President, imma għandna nkunu aktar jibżgħu għal raġel li spits fil-wiċċ ta 'Alla Almighty.

Reazzjoni Bil Grace

Allura kif għandi jirrispondi? I jista 'jibda kampanja li jibbojkottjaw l-mużika tagħhom. jew, bħala Rapper myself, I tista 'tikteb rekord Diss scathing għall-etajiet. I ser tavżak tiddeċiedi jekk xi waħda minn dawn l-approċċi huma dritt jew żbaljati. iżda onestament, Ma naħsibx li se tagħmel ħafna sabiex tindirizza l-problema vera.

Il-mużika dawn rappers rilaxx huwa riflessjoni ta 'qlub tagħhom. kliem tagħna huma dejjem stampa perfetta ta 'x'inhu għaddej ġewwa minna. Qatt tripped filwaqt li żżomm tazza ilma jew meraq? Tkun xi tkun inti għandek fil-ħġieġ tixrid barra fuq l-art. Kif nafu lkoll, guffaġni tagħna ma tipproduċix il-likwidu, hija biss jurina x'hemm fil-ħġieġ. Huwa l-istess ħaġa bil-kliem tagħna. Meta nitkellmu, jew RAP, il-kontenut tal-qlub tagħna huwa tixrid out. Diskors u l-mużika ma jagħmel lilna sinful, iżda ma jesponi x'hemm fil-qlub tagħna u l-imħuħ (Matthew 12:34).

Fid-dawl ta 'dak, jisimgħu xi wħud mill-rappers li jibdew temi reliġjużi jgħidlekx me żewġ affarijiet.

ewwel, ma jifhmux li Ġesù hu. Jekk dawn ma, huma qatt ma jitkellem ta lilu b'dan il-mod. Dażgur, huma jafu Ġesù kien raġel Lhudi li kien imsallab elfejn sena ilu. iżda, they don’t truly understand Him.

Ebda raġel jew mara fil-moħħ id-dritt tagħhom se jipprova jpoġġi lilhom infushom fuq livell mal-Ruler assoluta jekk verament mifhum lilu bħala tali. Ħadd ma diżrispett lilu billi jiġu assoċjati lilu bl-atti sesswali lewd jew il-vjolenza jekk mifhum li Hu kien l-Imħallef dejjiema ta 'erwieħ tagħhom. Huma ma toss ismu madwar bħal HES ħadd u jittrattaw Ismu ma 'tali levity u disrispett.

Meta inti ħadthom verament tidher Ġesù, inti tifhem li Hu inkomparabbli. Meta inti verament taf ir-Re, inti tissottometti lill-awtorità Tiegħu, inti ma jikkontestaha. Allura l-unika konklużjoni I jista 'jiġbed huwa li dawn ma bbenefikawx lilu għal min hu.

It-tieni, għandna bżonn l-persuni li jagħmlu jafu Ġesù biex jitkellmu. Mhux biss fil-kanzunetti u postijiet blog, iżda fuq il-mejda pranzu, fil-boardroom, u fil-klassi. għaliex? Minħabba dan in-nuqqas u irreverence mhijiex unika għall rappers. arti imprudenti huwa biss espressjoni waħda ta 'dan. Aħna ngħixu kultura blinded għall-verità (2 Korintin 4:4).

Ftuħ Għajnejn Blind

Mela jekk inti taf Ġesù, tell-ħbieb u familja tiegħek l-verità. Alla mhuwiex li jiġu toyed bl. Hu li jiġu worshipped, iħobb, obduti, u jgawdu. Hu veru. Huwa hates dnub u mibgħuta Iben Tiegħu biex ma jkunx hemm dan. Fil-fatt, Iben Tiegħu miet u ħa l-kastig għad-dnub hekk aħna ma jkollhom. And God raised Him from the grave so that we could live with Him forever.

Tgħaddi din Aħbar it-Tajba lil ħaddieħor! iżda jekk jogħġbok, tagħmel hekk bil-grazzja. Stop yelling lejn in-nies, u tibda loving minnhom. Jekk inti stajt tidher Ġesù għal min hu, mhuwiex għaliex int aħjar minn ħadd. Huwa minħabba Alla fetaħ għajnejn għomja tiegħek. Itolbu Huwa se jagħmlu l-istess għall-ħbieb u familja tiegħek.

U jekk ma tafx Ġesù, għandek tfittex li tkun taf lilu. Hu indescribably tajba, u aktar minn denja ta 'devozzjoni tagħna. hemm mhux wieħed u waħda minna li ma tista 'tinjora Alla jew jikkura Iben Tiegħu simili biss raġel ieħor. eternity tagħna jiddependi fuq dak li nemmnu dwar Ġesù. U l-verità hija, jekk aħna nemmnu fiH jew le, aħna ser jiġu ġġudikati bil lilu.

Allura x'hemm Alla għal nonbeliever inti ssaqsi? Ħallieq, Sustainer, u Imħallef. U jekk aħna ser dawran u jemmnu - Salvatur.

*Ċaħda ta 'responsabbiltà: Jien ma tirrakkomanda li inti tisma 'l-kanzunetti imsemmija hawn fuq. Waħda minnhom fih lingwa mniġġsa li mhux se jkun xieraq jew ta 'għajnuna għal ħafna.

    We would all be afraid for a man who’d spit in the face of the
    President, but we should be even more afraid for a man who spits in the face of Almighty God.” – That sentence is very powerful!

    Thank you for this article Trip! I really enjoy Christian Hip Hop because I always felt that lyrically it had much more content and teaching than normal CCM praise music.

    Ironically, I have never liked secular Hip Hop because of the constant repeating lyrical content of sex, drogi, self exalting, eċċ. That has been true even before I became Christian.

    Fil-fatt, I grew up listening to punk rock and was always a rocker. When I found Christian Hip Hop, I loved it! My friends were dumbfounded that I was listening to Hip Hop since I had always disliked it, at least secular Hip Hop.

    Keep on doing your great work and I shall too my brother! For the Glory of God and our beloved Saviour Jesus! :D

      ħej Trip,
      I agree that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks, so naturally the words to songs are going to be about whats going on in a person.
      I would also like to add that many Country singers as well talk about Jesus as some one they would drink with? Ummm yeah right if they saw him they would become humble and would not think much about drinking. Or would try to hide from his presence.
      I would like to share on here and with you that I have been called to speak to people about His Love. His Spirit told me that He would speak threw me to people. I am not perfect and I do try to stay unstained by the world, and am growing like other Christians also.
      I wanted to share with you some of my testimony of Gods goodness in my own life.
      I had always felt like I could feel God watching me even as a youth. I would sing to Him and get lost in the day thinking about His love. When I was 15 the Lord literally showered me with His love and Spirit and I received the Holy Spirit that day. My mouth was used by the Spirit to answer questions that was on others in the room hearts. And He spoke to me threw my heart telling me He had come to live in me and would protect me and would speak threw me when the time was right. I remember when I was in 9th grade and these people came with trash cans full of condoms to our school. Robert E. Lee in Tyler Tx. They showed us many pictures and the deceases that sex would bring. They told us to fill free to fill up small brown trash bags of condoms and take them if we needed them. They were telling us that we could go to the nurses office and get some also if we did not want to take them right then. When they said,”Sex is the best filling that you will ever fill.I stood up in-front of the whole 9th grade class and these people and proclaimed. “No God’s Holy Spirit is the best thing you and I will ever fill.They had police escort me to the office until after they had finished there spill. I remember a few students stood along with me and said she is right. This was the beginning of my journey.
      Later on in Life I was at an apartment where there was drinking and card games. I remember I felt like I needed to flee this place this feeling overwhelmed me in my heart. I noticed a man on a karaoke machine started to say my name and spoke things about me that I did not know how he could know. I watched him and noticed I could see horns coming out from his head I asked my friend if she could see what was happening also, she replied no, but that she felt uneasy about us being there. I knew I was seeing a spiritual thing happening then. I saw more things razor sharp teeth and and claws, and at that point I ran to the door to get out. The man on the karaoke machine called out to a women to close the door on me and not let me leave, she was not able to and he hurried to the door and stood in-front of the door closing me inside. I was in complete shock at what happened next. I saw the ugliest demon possible come half way out of this man as if to devour me right there, and at that moment a beautiful white covering came down over my entire body and in an instant the demon flew from this mans body. The man could not stand and slid down the door into a sitting position and I saw tears run down his face. 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 notme” iżda “Alla” 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!

      Matthew 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 JesusJESUS!!.

    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, eċċ. 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.

  4. CLEAN MIMSHACHTweġiba

    kollox sew. 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.

    this is really a great message
    inspired me to write something today, don’t let some negative people or comments sway you from speaking the truth. I know that there are some out there that might try to get on your nerves. I am here to say Keep it up you are making a difference

  8. MsBTweġiba

    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. Allura, 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. You’ve outlined our sole mission in this article- thanx! P.S. LOVE THE CUP ANALOGY!!!! AWESOME. Alla jbierek

  9. Tissemma: Rebel Rapper Trip Lee Talks About Rap & reliġjon - YES FM

  10. UnveilDa1Tweġiba

    I love the thought process of Mr. Lee, I’ve been a follower of Trip from the jump, When he asked the question “Allura kif għandi jirrispondi? I jista 'jibda kampanja li jibbojkottjaw l-mużika tagħhom. jew, bħala Rapper myself, I tista 'tikteb rekord Diss scathing għall-etajiet. 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.
