Rapper Game Portrays Jesus Christ As Gang Banger on Album Cover

The Game Jesus Piece Album Cover | Illuminati

Once again rappers mock the image of Jesus Christ.

In what is the latest blasphemy of Jesus Christ by a hip hop artist, rapper The Game, released the cover artwork for his newest album Jesus Piece which portrays The Lord Jesus Christ as a gangster from the Bloods gang, which The Game proudly belongs to. While Game’s motives behind the blasphemous image may have been positive, his action reflects the sad state of the Christian church today where many Pastors are failing in their duty to properly teach the Bible to those who are new to the faith or newly-saved and thus lead them into error such as a mockery of Jesus Christ.

As the news reports stated:

The artwork for the upcoming “Jesus Piece” album shows a stained-glass image of Jesus Christ, who is wearing a gaudy gold chain and a red bandana – often associated with the Bloods street gang – and has a teardrop tattoo on his face. The album’s title is written as “Je5us Piece,” with the number five also being a symbol of the Bloods, and there are marijuana leaves on both sides of Jesus’ likeness. [B&E: A “Jesus Piece” is hip hop slang for a necklace that has a Jesus or crucifixion pendant on it.]
“I’m calling [my new album] ‘Jesus Piece’ ’cause last year in August I got baptized and so I’ve been going to church, but I still been kinda doing me out here,” Game said in an interview with radio personality Jenny Boom Boom in September. “I still love the strip club and I still smoke and drink. I’m faithful to my family, so I wanted to make an album where you could love God and be of God, but still get it poppin’ in your life.” (source)

 

Webster’s 1828 Dictionary defines blasphemy as: An indignity offered to God by words or writing; reproachful, contemptuous or irreverent words uttered impiously against Jehovah.
Blasphemy is an injury offered to God, by denying that which is due and belonging to him, or attributing to him that which is not agreeable to his nature.

Showing Jesus depicted as a member of a gang that rappers like Game have heavily promoted and marketed to the culture for their ability to sell crack, make illegal money and kill people is obviously an indignity and irreverent.   Additionally, making any artwork image of Jesus or God The Father is a sin in the Bible. In Acts chapter 17, the Apostle Paul is meeting and sharing the Gospel to a group of Greek scholars known as stoics, who had a series of statues and idols set up to numerous pagan gods they worshiped. In explaining who the true God was, the God of the Bible, Paul illustrated the difference between their gods and the God of Christianity:

God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. – Acts 17:24-31.

We are not to make artwork of God. God, who is the Creator of all things, is far more vast and great for us to think we can make a statue or painting of Him. Similarly in Exodus 20 when Moses received the 10 Commandments from The Lord, the second commandment says:  Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. – Exodus 20:4.  Scripture is clear -  Christians are not to make images of God, which includes a “Jesus piece.”  And certainly depicting God in an inappropriate manner is even worse.

The Cause of Confusion: The Apostate Church

 

Bishop Noel Jones | Prosperity Gospel Pimp Heretic.

“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” – Matthew 7:15.


“You want to believe in God, but you don’t want to be criticized and ridiculed by people who think that they’re better than you,” he told Rap-Up TV. “I don’t want to feel like I can’t love God or appreciate Jesus and have to put down that blunt. I want to smoke, maybe shower up, then go to church. Get the word, walk out of church, maybe smoke again, maybe hit up a strip club or two and do me, but I don’t want to be ridiculed.” – The Game aka Jayceon Taylor (source).

Now it is this author’s belief that Taylor did not intend to mock Christianity in this album cover. It was more of an attempt to make Jesus Christ adjust to the lifestyle that Taylor wants to live – where he can still be a gang member, make all types of sin-promoting music, use drugs, go to strip clubs and still be a faithful Christian. He even went so far as to include marijuana leaves in the image on the album cover.  This is not in line with what the Bible says and he is serious error of not even knowing the Gospel, much less believing it. But who is truly at fault here? Look no further than the church which Taylor attends. Refuge Church, in Gardena, California, is run by Bishop Noel Jones who is a major preacher of the heretical, unbiblical Prosperity Gospel. Along with fellow apostate preachers like T.D. Jakes, Eddie Long and Benny Hinn (who he has co-hosted church events with), Jones teaches his congregation a “me-centered” Gospel that is focused on using God to attain material wealth and worldly success.

It appears The Game is being misled to believe in “another Christ.”

 

The Bible says: “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” (Hebrews 13:5). Yet the Prosperity Gospel says the exact opposite. It is entirely premised on coveting more success and more money. All at the cost of “sewing a seed” or giving money to the pastor, which counts as giving money to God, in order to receive your blessing.

Here is a video of Bishop Jones, at a Sunday service of the 17,000-member church, preaching on receiving a ‘double anointing’ of the Holy Spirit. Notice that just minutes into the video, the congregation is literally showering him with cash.

The ‘double anointing’ is a reference to the request the prophet Elisha made to his mentor, the Prophet Elijah, just prior to Elijah being raptured to Heaven in a chariot of fire and whirlwind.

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me. And he said, Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so. – 2 Kings 2:9-10.

This one-time request was made from one man to another at a specific time in ancient Israelite history. And the Spiritual blessing Elisha received was to prophesy and carry out the work of God. It was not a material blessing and Elisha did not have to pay or compensate Elijah or God to receive it. There is nothing in Scripture that indicates there is a universal principle in life to receive “double blessings” in any regard. Yet not only is Jones misusing the Scripture, he is gaining from it because the people are giving him their money in order to receive this blessing. This is a heretical teaching from a false prophet. The Book of 2 Peter warns of these false teachers who would infiltrate the church in the latter days:

But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. – 2 Peter 2:1-3.

It is because of the churches that are a part of the apostasy – the prophesied falling away of much of the Christian church from sound Biblical doctrine, in favor of New Age, man-made heresy, that so many people like the Rapper Taylor are in this state of spiritual confusion. If someone who is trying to come to church cannot even hear the real Gospel, then how can we expect them to know how to carry themselves as Christians?

The ‘Holy Water’ Video

The Game Holy Water Video | Jesus Piece Illuminati

The Holy Water video is full of spiritual confusion.

The spiritual confusion of the rapper Taylor was on complete display in the video for his song Holy Water. With shots of a Jesus head pendant, scenes of a young woman reading a book on prayer interspersed with images of designer clothes, a Rolls Royce and pornographic images of naked women dancing in a shower with alcohol being poured on them (the video was too X-rated for this article to link to it), it again reflects the pseudo-Christianity that Taylor has been taught.  The video shows a cell phone, that is presumably Taylor’s, receiving a text message from “Pastor Mase” -  rapper turned televangelist Pastor, Mason Betha, who is a full-fledged Prosperity Gospel heretic, continually preaching a message on money and earthly success (the opening of his show features him walking off of his private jet and he most recently did a song with Kanye West where he compares himself to a drug lord). This “me-centered” false doctrine leads the misled congregation to recreate the Holy God of the Bible into a God of their own imagination. This is not the real God and they are not believing a real Gospel. 1 John Chapter 2 explains:

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. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. — 1 John 2:15-17.

Man-centered false Gospels are premised on the world and satisfying worldly lusts. Taylor has clearly fallen for this type of preaching. Jesus Christ, teaching His disciples in the book of Luke said: “…Thus it is written, and thus it behooved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things.” (Luke 2:46-48). There is no sign of repentance for sin or understanding of surrendering one’s own life to follow Christ in Game’s attitude or music. As he said in his own comments above, he wants to believe in Christ but not “be ridiculed.”

With Jesus there is no middle ground, because true Biblical Christianity is the opposite of worldly living. Jesus said:  “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” (John 15:18-19). Christians are going to be ridiculed in circles that glorify fornication, drugs and rebellion because they believe a Gospel that identifies those behaviors as sin. So a Christian should expect ridicule, rather than shun it, because Christians are not of the world. This does not mean a Christian will never sin – but they will despise their sin, repent to God regularly for their sin and seek a life of holiness to follow after the example and image of Jesus Christ.

Taylor’s misunderstanding of the Gospel led him to even greater blasphemy in the video for Holy Water when he displayed an image of himself posing as Jesus on the cross:

The Game Holy Water Video | Illuminati

Like many rappers before him, The Game commits blasphemy by posing as Jesus Christ.

This will always be the end result of following a false teacher. And the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of pastors like Bishop Jones who use the Bible for their own gain instead of converting souls to believe in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins.

As we explained in our article Lessons From A Church Sex Scandal, with false teachers there is often inevitably sexual sin involved as well. In the past year, Bishop Jones, whose church is frequented by celebrities, had an adulterous affair and fathered the child of singer and ‘X-Factor’ finalist Stacy Francis. Francis, who was married at the time, issued a statement confirming the affair and that Jones was the father of the child. And while Jones has not publicly acknowledged the child, his press release after Jones’ announcement did not deny it.

Pray for these false prophets to fail in their manipulation of their congregations and repent of their sins in perverting the Word of God for their own personal gain. And pray for a revival of churches that believe and teach Biblical truths. These are the churches that are going to provide a way to salvation in Jesus Christ and forgiveness of sins. Before the rapper Game can even be judged as a Christian, he has to first understand what it means to be a Christian and that starts with Jesus Christ. Not the false Christ one of the Prosperity Gospel, who is here to work as a personal ATM and genie, but the real one of the Bible, who is God, and left His Heavenly throne to take on the form of a servant, suffer and die so that the sins of the world can be placed on him. And those same sins that the Game thinks are okay to have in his life, need to be outlined to him, so he can understand the need for repentance. And the need for forgiveness and eternal life that comes through the Savior.

But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die. All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live. – Ezekiel 18:21-22.

  1. Well, I agree with the majority of the article. I will point to the fact that, much like the discussion regarding Tyler the Creator, that someone posing with arms outstretched before a cross does not immediately constitute blasphemy. Blasphemy is far more in the attitude, intent and reasoning of that particular move.

    However- That is not the largest mistake, in my opinion, within this article. This is:

    “We are not to make artwork of God.”

    Here is where I will be quite firmly disagreeing with you, BaE. I’m sorry, but this is one area where, quite honestly, Christianity is set apart from Islam in stark contrast. The view you’ve espoused here is the same one which they hold, and honestly, it is complete and utter nonsense.

    I have heard countless people argue against art within the Christian community, calling it a baseless and useless waste of time; a frivolity akin to sin itself; and a number of other foolish lines of reasoning. While I do not know if that is a belief you also hold, BaE, I see these views most often graduating from that which you’ve presented here.

    In short, all of these are ludicrous.

    ….With that said….

    I am also aware that far too often, people with such views rarely admit to mistake or misunderstanding; so I guess rather than point to reasons this line of thinking is faulty, we’ll simply have to agree to disagree and move on.

      I would agree with rets because there was an omission of context on your part B&E, with all due respect.
      Verse 5 states, “Thou shalt not BOW DOWN thyself to them, nor SERVE them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God”… It is in my humble opinion based on the context that God does not mind it, because God seems to have said that in the sense of when it comes to a worshipping and/or serving manner that he is against it. Case in point… Why would God when giving directions in building the temple tell Solomon to weave into the fabric of the veil separating the holy place from the most holy place images of cherubim (angels)? And with the plans for the creation of the ark of the covenant, tell Moses to put cherubim as part of the mercy seat? According to those references within scripture it seems as if God has nothing against the use of graven images or artwork, ONLY when they are created & used to serve other things that really don’t concern him & they are bowed down to or shown some type of adoration, or reverence.
      I don’t think The Lord is a hypocrite or skitzo… Just a bit of humor lol.

      Everything in love. Take care.

      • Hey Sword Swinga,

        Thanks for your comments. Well we know the instructions for the tabernacle and the temple were based on the arrangement of things in Heaven. They are both pictures of the Heavenly realm temple. Those are not “man’s device.” They are God’s divine instructions. I am talking about art work that is a person’s own idea, which is what I believe Paul is talking about in the book of Acts.

        The simple contextual evidence of this is to ask this question: why is that not one person in the entire Bible every makes an image or artwork of God the Father or Jesus? If it were something Christians were supposed to be doing, wouldn’t one person over the thousands of years of history in the Bible had done this? Just something to consider. God bless.

        • Sword Swinga says:

          Based on that question alone, I would agree with you on that one when you put it like that. The whole question that some ask of “what does God/Jesus look like?” “Is he black, or is he white?” is of little importance in the grander scheme of things. That’s possibly a big reason why it’s not mentioned in the Bible in any way. So you get no arguement there from me.

          Let me ask this though. Are you against art in general or just when it pertains to any attempted depiction of God/Jesus?

            (Quote)

          • Well I am glad we have come to some agreement. I am definitely NOT against are in general. I love religious artwork and love using graphics and art on this site. The only thing you will find referencing God though is the cross. Because in Scripture the cross is clearly given a special status as a symbol of our salvation (i.e., “the preaching of the cross is foolishness to them that perish”..etc). God bless.

      No, there’s no “unforgivable sin” there; and yes, Game can be forgiven, but only if HE requests it in sincerity.

        I think you need to read the bible carefully, because there is an unforgivable sin.

        it is when you blasphemy against the Holy Spirit.

        the secret is, non believers who are blasphemy the holy spirit, can still be forgiven. Because they don’t know what they do as Romans says.

        But if you believe in Jesus and have the Holy Spirit and then blasphemy it on purpose, then you will not be forgiven. Because you know the consequences and choose to do it.

        1 Corinthians 12 points out

          (Quote)

        • Of course there’s such a thing as blaspheming the Holy Spirit, Xino. My remarks were in the context of your reply, however. Within this video, neither the lyrics, nor the poses, nor the piece as a whole actually blasphemes the Holy Spirit as described in Ephesians 4:30, Mark 3:29, Matthew 12:31-32, and Luke 12:10.

          Blaspheming the Holy Spirit in the manner spoken of, (being an “unforgivable sin”), cannot take place at any one time and remain unforgiven regardless of repentance; the only way this would be possible is if God was A) Unable to forgive, or B) Unwilling to forgive. Neither of these is possible with YHWH.
          1 John 1:9 states that “if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” Now, that completely does away with His being unwilling: He cannot be unwilling for some and willing for others or He would be a respecter of persons; moreover, Christ Himself would be a liar, for it was HE who stated that His Father had sent Him to atone for the sins of the whole world. Moreover, 2 Peter 3:9 states that it’s not God’s will that “any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” So much for Him being unwilling.
          Perhaps, though, He is unable. Matthew 19:26 tells that with God all things are possible; this is repeated by Christ in Mark 9:23, 10:27, 14:36 and Luke 18:27. One need only return to Genesis 1 to see a display of His awesome power to know that there is nothing impossible for Him. Thus, He is not only willing to forgive; He is also able to do so.

          By this, I have come to understand that this unforgivable sin is not something I must live in terror of committing. In other words, I need not concern myself with accidently stepping over a vague and undefined line. The line is quite clear, and I have not now nor will I ever cross.

          In Isaiah 63:10 we see that the children of Israel turned against God, rebelled, and “grieved the Holy Spirit.” Because of this, God became their enemy and fought against them. Grieving the Holy Spirit, then, requires rebellion against God. However, if it were unforgivable to rebel against Him once alone, then we would all be without hope.
          Instead, I see something very interesting in this passage. The wording of the passage suggests time passage, making this not a single act of rebellion, but a constant state of rebellion. (Ironically, the Hebrew word for ‘evil’ actually MEANS ‘rebellion.’)

          We are told that if we repent of our sins and turn to the Lord, we will be forgiven. We are also told that the Holy Spirit’s job main job when it comes to unbelievers is the conviction of sin. When we reject the gift of salvation, we grieve the Holy Spirit; however, if we at once turned and pled for forgiveness, mercy and salvation, we would find it- Else God is a liar, and a hypocrite. HOWEVER… If we never ask the forgiveness of the Lord and die in our sins, THAT is the unforgivable sin.

          The unforgivable sin is the one for which forgiveness was never asked.

          Thus, if “Fitty” dies without asking the Lord into his heart as His Savior and King, then yes; he is guilty of blaspheming the Holy Spirit. If he does, though, he will be at the marriage feast as surely as you and I.

          Incidentally, this is the major downfall of Universalism: They do not account for man’s stubbornness. Yes, God is “willing” that none perish, but He’ll also not violate man’s will. Thus, in man desires to “act a fool” and die in sin, that is on he and he alone- NOT God.

          • Rets I think you are speaking out of opinion and using the bible scripture to back up your point.
            let us not argue here as the bible tells us not to do so.

            but I will just tell you what I know and then we will leave it from there, because it would be meaningless.

            The Bible is justified and it is God’s words. Jesus said

            “And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. 32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”
            Words of Jesus himself.
            Yes bible does say all sins are forgiven as you said so.

            But I believe when we sin, we sin against ourselves, flesh, Jesus and Father. He is willing to forgive us if we sin against the above mentioned.
            But sinning against the -Holy Spirit- is another matter.

            1 Corinthians 2:14
            “The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit”

            1 Corinthians 12
            “Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.”

            As you can see. People who do not have the Spirit in them will curse at the Holy Spirit, Father, Jesus and everything. But they will be forgiven because they don’t even know what they are doing…they do not perceive or acknowledge.
            Before Jesus died, he said “forgive them father for they don’t know what they do”.

            But why did Jesus say people who blasphemy against Holy Spirit will not be forgiven? it would mean he contradicts himself right?

            Well ONLY people who have Holy Spirit in them can blasphemy against Holy Spirit. Because it is a decision you made to curse the Holy Spirit, you know the consequences of what will happen if you do curse Holy Spirit.

            There are unbelievers who are cursing Holy Spirit but they are forgiven. Because it would make no sense if Jesus died for us and unbelievers cursing Holy Spirit cannot be forgiven. This is why when unbelievers curse holy spirit, they will be forgiven first and will later know the truth. Once that believers curses Holy spirit again, he will not be forgiven. But if the believer curse Father, Jesus and others, he will be forgiven.

            This is why Matthew 7:21 stands again about people who will come up to him saying “Lord Lord, didn’t we/I prophesied, healed, perform miracle in your name?”

            1 Corinthians 2:14 greatly explains it.
            Only people with the Holy Spirit can say Jesus is Lord or Jesus be cursed!
            When we believe the Gospel, the Holy Spirit dwells in us, or we would God’s holy seal.
            Unbelievers do not know what they do so when they curse Holy Spirit, they will be forgiven until they know the truth.

  3. Making images of God is idolatry. Whether it is art or statue. I would also reccommend G.Craige Lewis
    The truth behind hip.hop series. He exposes the rubbish in depth like the rubbish this “artist “is displaying.There is no.such thing as holy hip.hop is one valid point he makes and this article is,one example.

  4. RETS:Thus, if “Fitty” dies without asking the Lord into his heart as His Savior and King, then yes; he is guilty of blaspheming the Holy Spirit.If he does, though, he will be at the marriage feast as surely as you and I.

    Clarification: Anyone who knows about the rivalry between 50 Cent and The Game will understand exactly why I brought 50 into the conversation as an illustration.

  5. xino:
    Rets I think you are speaking out of opinion and using the bible scripture to back up your point.
    let us not argue here as the bible tells us not to do so.

    but I will just tell you what I know and then we will leave it from there, because it would be meaningless.

    …..
    1 Corinthians 2:14 greatly explains it.
    Only people with the Holy Spirit can say Jesus is Lord or Jesus be cursed!
    When we believe the Gospel, the Holy Spirit dwells in us, or we would God’s holy seal.
    Unbelievers do not know what they do so when they curse Holy Spirit, they will be forgiven until they know the truth.

    That is a very interesting take, Xino. I am unconvinced, because it finds only tenuous support throughout the Scripture; regardless, however, I do appreciate your sharing with me.

    I do want to address only one further statement: That is the very first sentence of this quote.

    I once believed as you do. It was the study of Scripture, and the meditation upon it, that changed my opinion- Not the other way around.

    • Kwame Adu-Gyamfi says:

      I’m not trying to argue as well but blasphemy against the Holy Spirit can happen at one time. If you read the verse in context, Jesus said that because the Pharisees were saying that Satan gave him the power to cast out demons and were ultimately attributing a move of the Holy Spirit to Satan.

      Mark 3:22-30
      Mar 3:22 And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub, and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
      Mar 3:23 And he called them [unto him], and said unto them in parables, How can Satan cast out Satan?
      Mar 3:24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
      Mar 3:25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.
      Mar 3:26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.
      Mar 3:27 No man can enter into a strong man’s house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.
      Mar 3:28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:
      Mar 3:29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
      Mar 3:30 Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.

      But I also do believe that the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is used for almost anything and not in the proper context of scripture. But I guess what you said is also true in a sense.

  8. I Agree With RETS, the only unforgivable SIN is the the unwillingness of man to sincerely repent from his heart ( because we know that God can see our hearts ) and ask for forgiveness in the face of death.
    God Bless You All.

  9. I personally think the Christian community needs to be spiritually liberated and step outside of the box. Study what happened in the Nicen Council, and find out why they chose not to put certain books in non authoratative New Testament. The world is billions of years old and the bible is not even half so what were others following? Did Adam, and Noah use the bible? As for Christ, he never read or heard of a New Testament because he only read from the old. Do you know what testament means? What is the origin of the word gospel? There are many questions that one should ask before talking negative about the game. This is business move. Have you even heard the album? At least he is making an attempt and is being real bout his habits and not hiding them then are exposed like many false prophets today. I have no problem with the Christian faith but I do have a problem when one tries to throw the bible at myself and others when they too don’t follow. Let’s be real! Paul is a hypocrite and changed the true teachings of Jesus from following the laws of Moses to just having faith. Walking only by faith and not by sight will cause you to run into a wall so use your common sense which is your instinct. We all know right from wrong at a certain point in our lives. But Paul goes back and forth in those letters which are not scripture only letters from his personal opinion. Nothing in the bible should not be taken literal because all is allegory. Peace
