The limits of the gospel ministry are being exceeded. Teaching biblical themes through rap music certainly makes our churches and pastors indistinguishable from the world. What is happening in Adventism is nothing new. It is a common trend for churches today to adopt the world’s style of entertainment.
“Never bring the truth down to a low level in order to obtain converts, but seek to bring the sinful and corrupted up to the high standard of the law of God” (Evangelism, p. 137).
Unfortunately, there are countless churches that promote a comfortable, stylish, modern version of the faith to better suit your needs. If the true Seventh-day Adventist faith is too demanding, if the cross of Christ is too heavy, if denying your will is too much, if crucifying the flesh and rendering unquestioning obedience to God’s word is not for you – now you have a choice.
Now we can enjoy church with a pastor rapping in the pulpit. Faith can now be calibrated to match our fallen corrupt culture. The ministry can be modified to be more relaxing and relevant. We can customize our faith to suit our preferences.
This is just more evidence that Seventh-day Adventists are going through an identity crisis. These rapping pastors threaten to reshape the church as we know it. Is this a preview of what we will become if Jesus doesn’t come soon? It could be, if we continue down the path of molding the church after the pattern of the world. We will either continue to uphold our historic teachings or we will continue to embrace secular, worldly principles.
If the rapping pastor is making you feel cool and comfortable by removing the old hymns bequeathed to us by the Reformation, then find another church.
