Pastor Rap - Back to Church



  • 2012-08-25T14:01:28

The problem today is we are trying to lure people back in our own strength and not inviting God back into the church...people are looking for an experience with God not another program or event...Is. 64:1

Can we spare the Pastors for this job? I think Choir directors can do better. :)

AWESOME RAP! When the Lord wants us to be "FISHERS OF MEN" He provides many different ways. Have you noticed you don't have to be dressed in a suit and tie all the time? The Lord sees the heart, the inner man or woman.

It can if you spread your love at the front door like Jesus always did. A church can be at your back porch, street bench or coffee shop if you talk about Jesus's love and you have a few people who mindful enough to open up their hearts. Those churchs are just used to paint a common sceine to folks, that's all.

Couldn't be put any better. People need to be woken up to the realities around them any way that will make them listen to what is waiting for them after all this mess blows up. Revelations is not being studied enough in estimation. The times are getting uglier and being brought down faster. Christians need to reach out any way we can to get people to see how they can reach and be given over to the love of Jesus. To find out how beautiful His love really is and how easy makes for us to love him. That is where the fun really is, loving him is really fun. Come on folks, the world needs to see.

Well for starter's the church needs to get the people into the church. remember you can have a meaningful relationship with God and still have fun and live.

  • 2012-08-24T18:09:47

oh come on guys. not everything has to be analyzed. I haven't been to church in some thime and know several people would love the video. some see" The church" as boring and this was not. To use "reduce" doe's not seem like some thing Jesus would say. eh

  • 2012-08-24T18:00:20

definitely Paul, i sense many churches place too much emphasis on style of music or facilities or programs and not on the Word. thanks.

It took me a very long time before I accepted 'Contemporary' and 'Praise & Worship' music. Now, that's what we play most of in our Church band. I had to stop and actually listen to a Christian rapper, and watch the kids to realize that, yes, there is a very real need for all forms of worship as long it's sincere. Humor, rock'n'roll, rap, whatever reaches the people getting the message, is what it takes. Anything else is worshipping the tradition. The Broadway Hymnal isn't what my greatgreatgreat Grandpa in Scotland would have been singing to, either. Does that make the 'new' music in there wrong? Only to narrow-minded traditionalists.

I understand, and I do agree with you. However, I took from it that the syle of worship and the building were not important. It was that you should get back and find the place where you can get close to God again. If you noticed, they used several styles of building and emphasized different styles of worship. To me it said God was not limited to one.

A little untraditional but maybe that will be what it takes to let the people see what the lord is all about. Friends in Christ,Harold Lasater. All are welcone here says the Lord.

Amen. Agreed. The first guy is the reason I don't attend a church like that: lights, camera, auditorium with nothing Christ-like in it such as a cross, coffee bar....that's not church to me. I'm so tired of the "we don't want to scare anyone away" mentality that so many churches have today. Jesus never placated people into following Him so that they would stick around for more then he could eventually ease them into the truth. He was very straightforward about what it took to follow Him, “If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. Luke 14:26

Dear Beloved, For any of you on here who think this video is okay, you should be shame of yourself! This made me sick to my stomach.. "For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them." Matthew 13:15 God will send a Holy Ghost Revival to America! Pastors must preach the Word, even though it is currently out of fashion to do so (2 Tim. 4:2). That is the only way their ministry can ever truly be fruitful. Moreover, it assures that they will be fruitful in ministry, because God’s Word never returns to Him void; it always accomplishes that for which He sends it and prospers in what He sends it to do (Isa. 55:11). What's Wrong with my the Music I listen to? "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." —1st John 2:15. Psalms 50:22, “Now consider this, yes that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.”. “It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools.” —Ecclesiastes 7:5. Christian Pop and Rock has never led anyone to anything but worldliness. I am so wearied with professed Christian singers who claim to want to reach others for God, while getting rich and never taking a stand for anything. I'd much rather listen to honest heathen singers any day, than to listen to dishonest CCM rockers who masquerade as Christians. Consider the words of Daniel 3:10, “Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, shall fall down and worship the golden image.” Could it be that by fostering a global homogenized music style—a style that is increasingly visible in the false Christen music culture—that the stage is being set for all nations and religious backgrounds to unite in worship of the BEAST, i.e., the Antichrist. Yes, it is happening indeed! Many people fail to recognize the demonic forces all around us in society today. The music of this world is absolutely saturated in demonism, sexual immorality, rebellion and hatred against God. There's a website online that actually sexually rates hundreds of Rock stars, like Steven Tyler and Gene Simmons, by the groupies that follow them from city to city for the sole purpose of fornicating with them. This is demonism. Pornography is demonism. Anything that influences people for Satan is demonism. So I don't look for demons and red-tailed devils, Satan comes to us the Bible says with false teachings, sensual entertainers and the counsel of the ungodly. Sin City Las Vegas is demon city. Woe unto the wicked! I eagerly await the time when Jesus Christ will reign triumphantly from Jerusalem during the Millennium Period as King over the whole earth, and what a time of peace and righteousness that will be! Good bye Las Vegas! Good bye Mardi Gras! Good bye Hollywood! Good bye Broadway! Good bye music of this world! Amen! "Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream." —Amos 5:23, 24. May God bless you? +++ Pastor Grant Mettler +++. 'We love you but JESUS loves you more.''.

I feel we are ALL GOD'S children. I found the video fun. Have you ever watched a video of an animal or person being tortured. this was a blessed change.

  • 2012-08-24T04:55:45

I agree Jason. Granted fun is well fun, but this is foolishness. This is begging for mockery. My youth minister is in a rock and roll band and they're good, but they have a serious side too. Each part has to be tempered, and this video is just happy-go-lucky

  • 2012-08-24T03:32:36

Fabulous! :+)
