"Hip-hop has what all corporate America wants--18-35-year-old employed adults with growing families. That's why you see Russell Simmons producing clothes, Snoop Dogg hawking Chrysler. Everyone wants us. Why not the church?"
Senior pastor of hip-hip Crossover Community Church in Tampa, Fla. (USA Today/RNS)
A: Because what the world wants is not the same thing as what God wants. The Bible is a much better mouthpiece for God than is Russell Simmons or Snoop Dogg.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. --Romans 12:2
