Black Churches and Seminaries Believe They Must Embrace Christian Hip Hop

Bishop Eddie Long and Hip Hop in Church
We are always flabbergasted by this mentality that Christian Hip Hop, Rap, etc., is becoming the norm in America's churches, especially the black church. We can't see how hip hop and rap in the church will bring young people to Christ. They may be introduced to Him but to seriously live by the bible and live righteously as He intended, we're not seeing this. Many may not agree but bringing something 'from the world' into the church and intending to make it 'godly' does not work. Sorry we have to use this analogy but if being a Christian gay is wrong, then how is Christian rap/hip hop right? Again, this is trying to make a wrong right when the wrong must be rebuked and repented and the embracing of a new godly being is the only true way to God.
We know many people just don't understand why hip hop should not have a place in the church but while the church has invited other things in, this is just another invitation to Satan. "Come on in, Lucifer. Have a seat and take over" is essentially the concept. The church has embraced so much of the outside world for many, many reasons (mainly for money) that has nothing to do with God and we are continually looking to imitate the world when God never said to do so. In fact, we are suppose to 'show a difference' not conform to these new age philosophies.

"If we're going to take young people seriously, we have no choice," said Alton B. Pollard III, dean of the Howard University School of Divinity.
Howard University recently had their annual convocation featured the rocking beat of Christian hip-hop artists Da' T.R.U.T.H. and Sean Simmonds, and professors are using spoken word -- poetry performed as social commentary -- to examine the New Testament.
