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.

The author

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 pastor of City South Presbyterian Church, a church in Brisbane, 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. If you'd like to support his writing financially you can do that by giving to his church.

    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. Are you sure it’s not a Poe… “let his love pop a cap in your butt” ?. Also, the old guy with the fog machine was my favourite.

    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.
