to the point: rap & homosexuality.
i don’t have a lot to say as a for-runner to the main part of this post.
however, i do want to say thank you to Baptist Thinker for posting what i have stolen from his blog (teehee!) and making me aware of it.
also, i want to make you aware of an earlier post i had written about homosexuality a few months back – which you can read here.
lastly, i want to give a shout-out to my friend Dave who – though i’ve never met him personally or email him on a regular basis – has been a source of encouragement and an example of a wonderful, gracious, forgiving (and forgiven) Christian in my life.
okay… on to the real purpose of this post. it’s nothing big. it’s nothing crazily new and wow-ing necessarily. it’s just a youtube video of a rapper singing about a girl who struggles with homosexuality and the isolation of the church. did you hear me? i said “the isolation of the church.” meaning the church isolates her. again… “THE CHURCH.”
that’s awesome. because i thought the church was supposed to nurture an encourage the weaker brother (or sisters) and push them to go on for Jesus. i thought the church was supposed to pray for those who struggle and offer a shoulder to cry on when they fall short. maybe i was wrong all this time…
anywho. watch. listen. ponder.
some of you are probably more upset that i posted a youtube video of a rap song than you are about the actual topic of the video. to that i say – get over yourselves, you’re pseudo pharisaical hypocrisy (super double negative… ish?), and look at this situation through the eyes of Jesus Christ. (and if your response to that comment is something like “well, Jesus Christ would be super upset at that rap video AND the topic of said video, so my anger is righteous and justifiable”… well… then… go dunk your head in a toilet somewhere. preferably an outhouse. peace.)
