HIP HOP INDUSTRY OR MINISTRY? #TOLD

HIP HOP INDUSTRY OR MINISTRY?
#TOLD
TRUTH OVER LIES DAILY

Q: What’s your understanding about using hip hop as a style/genre of music without representing the subculture that has evolved around it, given it’s pagan roots? How do you make it clear to listeners that BSAC artists rap but have nothing to do with Hip Hop culture?

A: My main recommendations for ministers is to

1. Leave the past behind. It’s okay to have a past, but if you are constantly drawing from past musical influences, you will have to submit to the culture.

2. Avoid ungodly samples or copying from popular styles. It’s okay to start where you are at, but strive to be original and don’t keep going to the radio or to ungodly artists to follow how they sound.

3. Follow ministry, not industry. As ministers, our path of maturity should look like family and/or congregational service/ preaching, pastoring, evangelizing/ worshipping. It shouldn’t look like our dreams of music industry fame. A lot of men end up falling back into ungodly hip hop because they are intimidated from losing their hipness or their relevance from being a minister or working a job. That makes them sell out their responsibilities to mature as husbands/fathers/pastors in favor of making it in the industry.

4. Use your gifts and talents to be a servant not a star, a prophet NOT a performer, a doer not an actor.

It’s horrible what Entertainment and False Doctrine does to destroy Families and hurt Innocent Children. Not to mention the harm it brings to Congregations.

If you focus on ministry, you won’t fall backwards spiritually. The “American Dream” the “Rock Star Dream” the “Entertainer/Hypocrite Dream” all need to die, because it is often a replacement for diligent labor and service in the family or in the congregation. The desire for independence, fame, and labor-free wealth is actually a form of youthful lust.

2 Timothy 2: 22 Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

1 Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

Proverbs 14:23 In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
