Fellow Brethren in Christ, Hip-hop SHOULD be allowed in the church. Hip is a musical genre. A musical genre is defined by beats and rhythms. Beats and rhythms have no life if they are not infused with words. Its the words that have life. Hence, my position is that if young
people decide to use original hip-hop beats and not 'cookie cutter'
beats from secular artists and infuse those beats with the
unadulterated word of God then I say, the Hip-Hop musical genre should be allowed in the
Jesus the Christ in Matthew 28:16-20 gave his disciples instructions. Moreover, these instructions are mandated to us even today. Jesus said ' Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing
them in them name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Music is a
universal language that cuts across gender, race, creed and
ethnicities. If a Christ-filled, fire baptized youth decides to writes
lyrics under the anointing of the Holy Ghost and decide to use the
Hip-Hop musical genre to communicate that message; I say do not stifled
the move of the Holy Ghost with man-made traditions and discrepancies.
Let the power of God flow so that souls may be saved and new disciples
be made through the spirit-filled music.
People of God it time for us to get serious about what we are doing. Thousands of youth each year are leaving the church, committing suicides, and homicides. People of God, its time for us to allow the
power of God to move in our churches. Let the power of God flow
through the music so the word of God can preserve our young people.
