All of this from people who probably don't preach the Gospel to anyone. a recent survey said only 2 % of the church does this intentionally. People talk a big game but really never back up the stuff they say.
Are you preaching the Gospel. O Yeah, so why don't you start with the hip hop crowd, or are you to good for that. Got a opinion on sharing the gospel through rap is wrong but you are not going to be part of the solution to help these people here the gospel.

Not trying to be rude to you but in some of the Christian rap music I listen to these Guys rap more bible and gospel out than most of the hymns you have in your church that you sing on Sunday. I am a white country boy who likes this rap because you can be edified because the lyrics are so bible saturated. Just as with all the different hymn books there is alot of bad theology so it is the same with rap,the proplem from a bible perspective is not what style you think is right ,but is what they are saying true and accurate. Now just a pre judgement, you probly dont like the bass in rap music but to make a informed decision you need to check it out you can go to reachrecords.com to check out just the lyrics or go to lampmode.com these are the only to sites I have found that uphold biblical truth with out compriseing the Gospel message.(watering down the bible)Jesus is not about religion or the religous followers of it but he is about building his kingdom for his Glory and to his own praise.
I love it Christians finally being bashed for what God sent us to go and tell (the Gospel), instead of the bashing that comes from high profile public confessors of Christ who fall into every Sin and bring shame to Gods name. I love it when people hate us for our obedience instead of our disobedience. Praise God.
As it is written, "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated." What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God's part? By no means! For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might show my power in you, and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth." So then he has mercy on whomever he wills, and he hardens whomever he wills. You will say to me then, "Why does he still find fault? For who can resist his will?" But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, "Why have you made me like this?" Has the potter no right over the clay, to make out of the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for dishonorable use? What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, in order to make known the riches of his glory for vessels of mercy, which he has prepared beforehand for glory-- even us whom he has called, not from the Jews only but also from the Gentiles? (Romans 9:13-24)
Joh 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
God Hates Sin, Do you still Sin, Then turn from it Repent.1Jn 1:4 And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete. 1Jn 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 1Jn 1:6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 1Jn 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 1Jn 1:8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1Jn 1:10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
Used as A Platform to preach the Gospel and hand out Gospel Tracts(Yes) We need to all thank God for this oppertunity then Go and preach the Gospel, only problem most christians don't preach the Gospel they just argue over what is right and wrong. Hearers of the WORD but Not Doers of the WORD
No scriptures to be given, study for yourself and seek a God fearing man who's heart is for Christ and his truth no matter the cost to teach you scripture. The only business of and Evangelist in the church is to encourage others to be proclaimer's of the Gospel truth. And Evangelist belongs out in the world where the Lost are and Pastors are called not to forget to do the work of an evangelist as all believers are call to be loyal to Christ. Some have the gift of evangelism but all are called to do so just as some have the gift of help but that does not mean their the only one's who help, were all called to work for the kingdom of God and we all have certain gifts that we excell in, that does not mean you do only that what you excell at. Stay focused for the time is drawn short and souls are at stake.
Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Joh 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Joh 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit. Joh 3:9 Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be? Joh 3:10 Jesus answered and said unto him, Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things? NOW GO READ EZEKIEL CH.36
I say yes , But you will not be loved for living your faith. They will hate you because they first hated me.(Jesus) They say they love Him but their heart's are far from Him. Their mouth's reveal thier hearts. As for me and my family the LORD is GOD and Him we serve.
The only reason a christain needs to run in politics is to engage in conversation with the false converts and unbelievers who are apart of government and preach the Only Gospel that we have missed the mark deserve God's Wrath and we should be thrown in hell and forgotten about, But God is Love just as much as he is prefectly Holy and JUST and has provided away for us to be Holy by the Wrath We Desered was pour out on his dearly beloved Son in our place it was my SIN'S (adultry,lying,lust,fornication and lack of love for him and obedience,living for my will and not for the will of my God)Anything else is of no value to the Unsaved. By the preaching of the Word come faith.You may be fired or impeached But as of now you want have to die for your obedience as others have been murder for preaching this Gospel the only Gospel for the is no other.
