Lecrae Is OK
He says A & R people.
Christians swear sometimes too...
Look up the song Jim Crow.
But anyways, this is a good song.
First of all, Lecrea doesn't curse in the song. Check the lyrics on Rap Genius. He is clearly promoting a worldview of enjoying nature and living life to the fullest and not wasting your time. Which is something, that christian or not, we need to embrace.
But I would like for you to sit back and think for a moment. What if his did curse once or twice. Would it matter? Would it change the impact of his message?
Language has been created and crafted through the centuries. Words are just that. Words. Each is beautiful and appropriate in their own context. Even curse words can be appropriate in there correct context.
So what if Lecrea cursed? I for one would be kind of proud. It would not only continue show that he is all the more emotionally invested in his message, but it could also help to bridge the gap Christians and non-christians, and help his message get out to a wider audience. And isn't that what christians should want? Al people of every nation to come to christ? Not all Christian music is supposed to be specifically tailored for christians. If Lecrea has had any purpose it has been to get the gospel out there.
Now let us look at the downsides. Would he lose a particularly conservative law-abiding fan base? Probably.
Do I expect him to curse in the near future? Not really.
I just want christians to think about the power of curse words when put in their proper context and applied correctly.
