I now understand more and more about this so-call world of "Hip-Hop". I understand now why "Hip-Hop"has really no place in our churches and yet it's slowly creeping in our church doors. After hearing all of this, I will stand behind fellow clergy members by NOT allowing "Hip-Hop" into our churches.

Pastors,Ministers and Church Leaders, would you allow "Hip-Hop" in your churches? Is this a way in keeping our youth in church? I am interested in all feedback concerning this issue.

Those who have hardened hearts because of tradition will not be able to receive from God. God is not bound by your traditions. He is not a fan of your stale church services that have the same people in them every Sunday, while you sing the same songs that your Grandma sang. God doesn't care whether you worship him with an organ (its use in the black church originated from blues music), an electric guitar (its use in the black church originated in R&B pop), drums (its use originated from African tradition), piano (its use in the black church originated from Country music), or anything else. God is only concerned about the hearts and souls of men. While many of you are spending so much time hating a genre of music. That time could be more adequately used sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with the lost. The Gospel and your testimony are always RELEVANT. Worship is not about music, it is about a lifestyle of love and sacrifice

Pastor Jones
I am sure that satan said something similar before he and a third of the angels were kicked out of Heaven and be mindful that he was in charge of the music and he used MUSIC TO DECEIVE GODS ANGELS
You may want to read that again, My friend. God Bless You!

Romans 12:1 states:

1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual[a] act of worship.

That was Bible. Worship is not music, music is just a vehicle that we tend to use in the contemporary church. Music was never the deception in heaven, Satan was. If what you are saying is right, then all music is evil. You may want to research your thinking on this, because it is not exhaustive at all.

God Bless You!!!
I never said that ALL Music is satanic,,only when RAPE,DRUG distribution and killing as well as fast sex then you cant tell me that it should be excepted in the Church..The songs that I was raised on no one was becomming pregnant in the Church,,taking a hip hop beat and using Yashua's name on it is not good,because they dont here Yashua they only pay attention to the beat and the beat leads to the REAL lyrics
Be blessed everyone
Have a blessed Sabbath Day
So is it that because they are Hip-Hop they are not worthy of a God experience? These, when converted can become some of the best workers for God! They have a keep it real mentality that won't change because they are saved, but will grow and make them more conscientious. They are (many of them) brave and not afraid to talk to people who are what they used to be! God still see them as his children so who gives the Holy Children a right to reject them? Who am I to speak up for them? Only a person who used to be one of the very people you are talking about! I was and am someone's child,brother,cousin,uncle,husband,father and friend. I may not matter to you but, I DO MATTER TO GOD AND I MATTER TO THEM! You are entitled to your opinions and I to mine. I don't agree with most of their lyrics but so often I wished I could teach them something better to talk about. SHOW THEM where these roads that are being rapped will lead to. Teach them the weight of the games they are playing with that Devil and the wages of continuing to do so...as someone has also shown me!
in our outreach ministry dont have all pastors that our elders of the ministry who are intetested they are maintining all outreach churches sunday school sunday messges all that yes praise God
Sis. Trenet,

It sounds like you a wise woman of reason and biblical knowledge far above the average. Correct me if I am mistaken, tradition did not reveal this to you. The fruit of mature growth in young people and a true and living God has revealed that to you. God bless you and your transparency. I stand in agreement with you.

The scriptures share direct concern with us about with what is prohibited in the church. They are listed from Genesis to Revelations, no drum beats are hype tracks were mentioned. It is a sad Christian that tries to blame sinful behavior solely on a beat. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful and anything it touches becomes holy, even a good beat. Anything that is HOLY cannot be sinful at the same time. Thank You!!!
I am so sorry to inform you all that Hip hop Is already in the Church you let it in with kirk F. and the clark sis. plus all most all the Christian artist copy off of some secular artist. I have been in the biz 30 yrs and have 60 gold and plat. records so I know what i am talking about when it comes to music trends. while so many were hiding in to church i was on the block with the power of God TO LEAD HIP; HOP AND NOT BE LEAD BY IT. The church let rock and roll in with hill song and many before them. and let in p-funk with kirk the clarks and aundray I think many in the church are getting board and dont have enough to do if you would get out of the four walls you would not be afraid of the influence that this music has.DONT FOCUS ON THE SOUND FOCUS ON THE PEOPLE. I think you are just a little alarmed about what you dont understand and what you can not stop. NEW FLASH YALL YOU SHOULD HAVE SAID THIS IN 1989 WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?? OH I KNOW STUCK IN THE FOUR WALLS BLIND TO WHAT WAS ALREADY COMING YOUR WAY T. With all the love and truth in the word the truth is.This conversation is 20 yrs late and really almost a waste of time,
THIS IS 2009
