敲击 & 宗教

只要我能记得, 嘻哈已与神和宗教的痴迷. 我的意思并不是说所有的说唱歌手是宗教信徒. 但是很少有说唱歌手 - 或任何艺术家对于这个问题 - 可以撼动的冲动,包括地方的神的艺术. 这是自然,好让我们对上帝说话, 但问题是, 什么是我们说? 有些人会说, “这只是音乐. 不要这么认真!” 但是,什么是说唱歌手说的麦克风是比你想象的更严重.

有些人用嘻哈表达了真诚的宗教信仰或缺乏. 伊斯兰教, 五Percenters, 基督教, 不可知论, 无神论, 和其他宗教已全部通过艺术的形式推广. 我认为嘻哈是唯一适合表达忠诚和奉献什么,我们是充满激情. 一方面是因为文化的吸引力半生不熟的,部分是因为嘻哈允许更多的单词, 因此,你实际上可以“教。”

但大多数时间嘻哈更像是一个理发店不是一个主日学类. 说唱歌手硬拼在滔滔不绝, 他们是否知道他们在说什么或不.

诚信VS. 鲁莽

有些押韵的体现真诚的 - 虽然有时被误导 - 搜索与真理奋斗. 我尊重. One thinks of The Roots’ “Dear God 2.0,or Kendrick Lamar’s “Dying of Thirst”.” *即使我不同意他们的假设或结论, 我喜欢听真诚流浪. 它常常让我感动,为我的同胞祈祷司仪.

嘻哈一直有一个黑暗的一面,虽然, 其中,艺术家对待上帝和宗教的不尊重和不尊敬. 说唱歌手好像说什么话觉得不对劲的时刻 - 他们是否真的相信与否. 而在一个“后基督教” 国家像我们这样的, 这些鲁莽的攻击通常是针对耶稣和他的教会.

当然, 有一些事情 - 像虚伪和资金饥渴“传道” - 这应该被嘲笑. 但可悲的是, 圣经, 教堂, 和神自己常常被像一个虚构的故事人物猥琐. 我承认, 听到说唱歌手谈“辣妈” 女孩在教堂唱诗班令我生厌, 但没有更让我伤心的不是嘲弄耶稣自己.

许多说唱歌手都称自己为上帝, 把自己与耶稣的水平, 而白白夸耀采取主的名字. 他们已经围绕不敬的宗教题材整个专辑. 他们已经用他们的上帝赋予的创造力来侮辱他们的创造者. How ironic.

作为耶稣的跟随者, 我个人用我所听到的冒犯, 但更重要的是我怕了谁喷涌这些亵渎的话的人. 我们都怕了谁愿意在总统的脸上吐唾沫的人, 但我们更应该担心的人谁在全能神的脸上吐.

响应风度

所以,我应该如何应对? 我可以开始一项运动,抵制他们的音乐. 要么, 作为一个说唱歌手自己, 我可以写为历代严厉迪斯纪录. 我让你决定是这些方法是否是对还是错. 但说实话, 我不认为他们会做很多工作来解决实际问题.

这些说唱歌手发行的音乐是他们心中的反映. 我们的话语总是什么事情我们内部的一个完美的画面. 你有没有同时举行的水或果汁一杯绊倒过? 无论你在玻璃洒出到地面. 大家都知道, 我们的笨拙不会产生液体, 它只是向我们展示了什么是玻璃. 这是我们的语言同样的事情. 当我们谈到, 或说唱, 我们心中的内容被溅出. 语音和音乐并不会让我们有罪, 但它确实暴露出什么在我们的心灵和头脑 (马修 12:34).

鉴于此, 听一些谁占用宗教题材的说唱歌手告诉我两件事情.

第一, 他们不明白耶稣是谁. 如果他们, 他们永远不会说他的这种方式. 当然, 他们知道耶稣是一个犹太男子谁是两千年前钉死在十字架上. 但, they don’t truly understand Him.

没有男人或女人在他们的心智会尽量把自己与绝对统治者的水平,如果他们真正了解他是这样. 没有人会被他猥亵的性暴力行为或暴力联系起来,如果他们了解,他是他们的灵魂永远的法官不尊重他. 他们不会折腾他的名字周围像他是一个人,并与这些轻率和不尊重对待他的名字.

当你真正看到耶稣, 你明白,他是无与伦比的. 当你真正了解王, 您提交他的权威, 你不挑战它. 所以,我可以得出的唯一结论是,他们还没有见过他,他是谁.

第二, 我们需要谁知道耶稣的人说话了. 不只是在歌曲和博客, 但在饭桌上, 在会议室, 并在课堂上. 为什么? 由于这种无知和不敬不是唯一的说唱. 鲁莽艺术是它只是一个表达. 我们生活在蒙蔽真相文化 (2 科林蒂安 4:4).

打开双眼失明

所以,如果你认识耶稣, 告诉您的朋友和家人的真相. 上帝不与被玩弄. 他是被崇拜, 喜爱, 遵命, 并享受. 他是真实的. 他讨厌罪和与它差遣他的儿子做掉. 事实上, 他的儿子死了,花了罪的刑罚,所以我们就不必. And God raised Him from the grave so that we could live with Him forever.

通过这个好消息给别人! 但请, 有风度这样做. 停在人大喊大叫, 并开始爱他们. 如果你看过耶稣他是谁, 这不是因为你比任何人. 这是因为上帝打开你的双眼失明. 打赌,他会做同样的为您的朋友和家人.

如果你不知道耶稣, 你应该去了解他. 他别提好, 比值得我们奉献更多. 这里没有可以忽视上帝或治疗他的儿子一样只是一个花花公子我们的单一. 我们永恒取决于我们认为耶稣. 而事实是, 我们是否相信他还是不, 我们会被他判断.

那么什么是上帝向你问一个nonbeliever? 创造者, 自持, 和法官. 如果我们将转而相信 - 救主.

*放弃: 我不建议你听上面提到的歌曲. 其中一个包含粗口,将不适合或有帮助了很多.

    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, 毒品, self exalting, 等等. That has been true even before I became Christian.

    事实上, 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! :ð

      Hey 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” 但 “神” 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!

      马修 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, 等等. 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.

    好. 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. 所以, 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. 上帝保佑

    I love the thought process of Mr. 背风处, I’ve been a follower of Trip from the jump, When he asked the question “所以,我应该如何应对? 我可以开始一项运动,抵制他们的音乐. 要么, 作为一个说唱歌手自己, 我可以写为历代严厉迪斯纪录. 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.
