The Parent Rap

Pull Yo’ Pants Up!

Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, and let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes. But know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment. – Ecc. 11:9 This preacher drives a point home to […]

Russell Moore, Al Mohler–Blurring the Line Between the Holy & the Profane

From Newcalvinist: “Dr. Russell Moore spoke about how the church can dialogue with the hip-hop culture. He said: There is something in hip-hop that we can learn from in all kinds of ways, in our evangelism, in our discipleship, in our preaching, especially in our preaching. He asserted that the lyrics of rap music are […]

Christian Rap (and Hip-hop) Is A Lost Cause

Sometimes I think this blog site could literally double, triple, or more in readership, if only I would do one thing: support and promote Christian, “reformed” rap/hip-Hop music and its artists. Maybe not, but maybe. Nah. I can’t do that because there’s something preventing me from doing so, the Bible. The pressure to do so […]

Two Reasons to Abandon ‘Holy’ Hip-Hop

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. – Galatians 5:16, […]

Culture, Media & Compromise

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.-Romans 12:2 I’ve been preaching this for years now, and quite frankly, it’s good to know someone out there is in […]


Because we play #3 ranked Alabama tomorrow, and you know, you just don’t stop being a Razorback. So bring it ‘Bama. You’d better. If I had eloquent smack to be talkin’, I’d be smackin’ it..I mean, talkin’ it. You know …um, the smack talk stuff. Yeah, that’s right. Whut? Whut?

Praise & Worship

[9] And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, [10] and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, […]

A Response To Shai Linne

(Updated…) “‘See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god beside me; I kill and I make alive; I wound and I heal; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand.” – Deut. 32:39 I’ve decided to make this short and, hopefully, sweet. First, let me say that […]

‘Heresy’ by Javon Mackenzy

I hesitated to post this, for a number of reasons. 1) Honestly, I can’t stand rap music, I can rarely understand what’s being said. Guess I’m older than I realized. I’d prefer Keith Green, Stonehill, or the other ancient fathers. 2) It just irritates me. 3) Guess I’m too old. 4) Still, guess I’m too […]
