敲擊 & 宗教

只要我能記得, 嘻哈已與神和宗教的痴迷. 我的意思並不是說所有的說唱歌手是宗教信徒. 但是很少有說唱歌手 - 或任何藝術家對於這個問題 - 可以撼動的衝動,包括地方的神的藝術. 這是自然,好讓我們對上帝說話, 但問題是, 什麼是我們說? 有些人會說, “這只是音樂. 不要這麼認真!” 但是,什麼是說唱歌手說的麥克風是比你想像的更嚴重.

有些人用嘻哈表達了真誠的宗教信仰或缺乏. 伊斯蘭教, 五Percenters, 基督教, 不可知論, 無神論, 和其他宗教已全部通過藝術的形式推廣. 我認為嘻哈是唯一適合表達忠誠和奉獻什麼,我們是充滿激情. 一方面是因為文化的吸引力半生不熟的,部分是因為嘻哈允許更多的單詞, 因此,你實際上可以“教。”

但大多數時間嘻哈更像是一個理髮店不是一個主日學類. 說唱歌手硬拼在滔滔不絕, whether they know what they’re talking about or not.

誠信VS. 魯莽

有些押韻的體現真誠的 - 雖然有時被誤導 - 搜索與真理奮鬥. 我尊重. One thinks of The Roots’ “Dear God 2.0,or Kendrick Lamar’s “Dying of Thirst”.” *即使我不同意他們的假設或結論, 我喜歡聽真誠流浪. 它常常讓我感動,為我的同胞祈禱司儀.

嘻哈一直有一個黑暗的一面,雖然, 其中,藝術家對待上帝和宗教的不尊重和不尊敬. 說唱歌手好像說什麼話覺得不對勁的時刻 - 他們是否真的相信與否. 而在一個“後基督教” 國家像我們這樣的, 這些魯莽的攻擊通常是針對耶穌和他的教會.

當然, 有一些事情 - 像虛偽和資金飢渴“傳道” - 這應該被嘲笑. 但可悲的是, 聖經, 教堂, 和神自己常常被像一個虛構的故事人物猥瑣. 我承認, 聽到說唱歌手談“辣媽” 女孩在教堂唱詩班令我生厭, 但沒有更讓我傷心的不是嘲弄耶穌自己.

許多說唱歌手都稱自己為上帝, 把自己與耶穌的水平, 而白白誇耀採取主的名字. 他們已經圍繞不敬的宗教題材整個專輯. 他們已經用他們的上帝賦予的創造力來侮辱他們的創造者. How ironic.

作為耶穌的跟隨者, 我個人用我所聽到的冒犯, 但更重要的是我怕了誰噴湧這些褻瀆的話的人. 我們都怕了誰願意在總統的臉上吐唾沫的人, 但我們更應該擔心的人誰在全能神的臉上吐.

響應風度

所以,我應該如何應對? 我可以開始一項運動,抵制他們的音樂. 要么, 作為一個說唱歌手自己, 我可以寫為歷代嚴厲迪斯紀錄. 我讓你決定是這些方法是否是對還是錯. 但說實話, 我不認為他們會做很多工作來解決實際問題.

這些說唱歌手發行的音樂是他們心中的反映. 我們的話語總是什麼事情我們內部的一個完美的畫面. 你有沒有同時舉行的水或果汁一杯絆倒過? 無論你在玻璃灑出到地面. 大家都知道, 我們的笨拙不會產生液體, 它只是向我們展示了什麼是玻璃. 這是我們的語言同樣的事情. 當我們談到, 或說唱, 我們心中的內容被濺出. 語音和音樂並不會讓我們有罪, 但它確實暴露出什麼在我們的心靈和頭腦 (馬修 12:34).

鑑於此, 聽一些誰佔用宗教題材的說唱歌手告訴我兩件事情.

第一, 他們不明白耶穌是誰. 如果他們, 他們永遠不會說他的這種方式. 當然, 他們知道耶穌是一個猶太男子誰是兩千年前釘死在十字架上. 但, they don’t truly understand Him.

沒有男人或女人在他們的心智會盡量把自己與絕對統治者的水平,如果他們真正了解他是這樣. 沒有人會被他猥褻的性暴力行為或暴力聯繫起來,如果他們了解,他是他們的靈魂永遠的法官不尊重他. 他們不會折騰他的名字周圍像他是一個人,並與這些輕率和不尊重對待他的名字.

當你真正看到耶穌, 你明白,他是無與倫比的. 當你真正了解王, 您提交他的權威, 你不挑戰它. 所以,我可以得出的唯一結論是,他們還沒有見過他,他是誰.

第二, 我們需要誰知道耶穌的人說話了. 不只是在歌曲和博客, 但在飯桌上, 在會議室, 並在課堂上. 為什麼? 由於這種無知和不敬不是唯一的說唱. 魯莽藝術是它只是一個表達. 我們生活在蒙蔽真相文化 (2 科林蒂安 4:4).

打開雙眼失明

所以,如果你認識耶穌, 告訴您的朋友和家人的真相. 上帝不與被玩弄. 他是被崇拜, 喜愛, 遵命, 並享受. 他是真實的. 他討厭罪和與它差遣他的兒子做掉. 事實上, 他的兒子死了,花了罪的刑罰,所以我們就不必. And God raised Him from the grave so that we could live with Him forever.

通過這個好消息給別人! 但請, 有風度這樣做. 停在人大喊大叫, 並開始愛他們. 如果你看過耶穌他是誰, 這不是因為你比任何人. 這是因為上帝打開你的雙眼失明. 打賭,他會做同樣的為您的朋友和家人.

如果你不知道耶穌, 你應該去了解他. 他別提好, 比值得我們奉獻更多. 這裡沒有可以忽視上帝或治療他的兒子一樣只是一個花花公子我們的單一. 我們永恆取決於我們認為耶穌. 而事實是, 我們是否相信他還是不, 我們會被他判斷.

那麼什麼是上帝向你問一個nonbeliever? 創造者, 自持, 和法官. 如果我們將轉而相信 - 救主.

*放棄: 我不建議你聽上面提到的歌曲. 其中一個包含粗口,將不適合或有幫助了很多.

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

    事實上, I grew up listening to punk rock and was always a rocker. When I found Christian Hip Hop, 我愛它! 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

      嘿旅行,
      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 not “我” 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!

      馬修 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.

    I love the thought process of Mr. 背風處, I’ve been a follower of Trip from the jump, When he asked the question “所以,我應該如何應對? 我可以開始一項運動,抵制他們的音樂. 要么, 作為一個說唱歌手自己, 我可以寫為歷代嚴厲迪斯紀錄. 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.
