Rappin for Jesus

These guys do “exude some Christian swag.”

But this is not how to make the gospel relevant for the hip hop community. There is so much wrong with this… particularly the bit where a couple of middle aged white people are more than a little bit racist, not to mention that they’re rapping.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

    1. Yeah. It’s such a mix of slightly good stuff with downright offensive attempts to be relevant. It’s what happens when you can’t properly separate the style of what you’re trying to redeem from the substance – you don’t need to bust caps, or call anybody “n******” to do hip hop for Jesus.

    1. I’m not sure – but it seems far too conversant with Christian culture, and the people are, I think, too old to be engaged in internet shenanigans.
