Soli Deo Gloria

Im Leben und Sterben: Einheit mit Christus!

Wahrheit – Song der Woche (Lecrae)

Was ist Wahrheit? Das ist die Frage, die schon Pilatus Jesus stellte. Lecrae beantwortet in einem Hip-Hop-Song einige Fragen, u.a. zu dem Anspruch der Christen, die einzig rettende Wahrheit zu haben. Gerade die Zeilen, die Relativismus in Bezug auf Wahrheit bearbeiten haben, mich sehr begeistert – was man alles in einen Rap packen kann. Unbedingt die Lyrics lesen!

You’re killing yourself.
If what’s true for you, is true for you
And what’s true for me, is true for me,
What if my truth says your’s is a lie?
Is it still true? Come on man!

 

Truth Lyrics
Bring the drums.. yea!

This song right here
Is for everybody out there looking for truth.
And who says, ya know, we all in the same boat,
Yea, Christians, muslims, everybody like that (huh.. yo)
You’re looking for truth?
(oh) I got some answers mayne.
(so good to me) Uh.. let’s get into it.

Let’s go!
Night and day I ain’t scared to sayin‘ we different
They play the prostitute,
But they like to say they just intimate
Idols in their heart,
They can’t seem to lose the grip on it
See ‚em walking in the direction they can’t get grip on it
Our world is different like Whitley and Wayne mayne
They say we look the same,
But we ain’t chasin‘ the same thang.
It all boils down to they think everything is relative
Jesus might as well be a South American president..
Very evident, they say that Jesus was heaven sent
They lifestyle reflects that they worship theyself instead of Him
They don’t acknowledge the Christ
If they did, they wouldn’t worship themselves
by the way that they live.
All these rappers say they got guns that spray off 16
I got a Luke 9, that can take all 16
That’s the Bible, the one they quote
But they don’t care about the author,
They they He’s a joke.. man..

„Just some folks say:
„All truth is relative, it just depends on what you believe.“
You know, „hey man, ain’t no way to know for sure
Who God is or what’s really true.“
But that means you believe your own statement;
That there’s no way to know what’s really true.
You’re saying that that statement is true.
You’re killing yourself.
If what’s true for you, is true for you
And what’s true for me, is true for me,
What if my truth says your’s is a lie?
Is it still true? Come on man!“

I promise, everybody is askin‘ the same questions
Who am I? What is my purpose and my direction?
Probably believe that you exist for no other reason
Than self satisfaction, hedonism and pleasin‘ things
Life’s about you gettin‘ yours and bein‘ happy
Even if it means a divorce and switchin‘ families
Your job, your house, your car, your spouse
It’s all for the glory of you.. else you out.
You go to school, get ya degrees, and get a job
So you can make a whole lot of cheese, ‚cause life’s hard.
You never thought of livin‘ to please a real God
And that’s the reason He made you (see)
He gave you breath to breathe, the chest to breathe
So you can taste and see He’s the best, believe it
He made us for His glory, and not for your own homie
Our God is Holy.. you should repent and die slowly..

„See, there’s this thing called „Secular Humanism“,
It says man is the source of all meaning and all purposing.
You know what i’m saying?
We’re just the result of a big cosmic explosion.
We don’t really have a purpose or meaning,
So we just come up with our own purpose.
We’re the source of our meaning and our purpose.
How can a man, which is the product of chance,
a finite being be the source of purpose and meaning?
You can’t! You’re created with purpose man!
Get with The Creator yo!“

Man, everybody got a problem with God,
And when you mention the Christ
Then they really get to turnin‘ the knob
But some say they roll with Christ
‚Cause some rappers made Him seem like
He was cool with all the sin in they life.. NO!
But then some say, how could God exist when,
All this evil stuff in the world keep persistin‘
Wrong question, ask again
Home come God ain’t let you feel the wrath of sin?
What you thought last night, deserve a first class flight
To hell, where God doesn’t dwell, you got that right
But He bought back life on that cross that night
Christ died, you ain’t know that it cost that price?
All of God’s anger, poured on His Son
Been together through all eternity, now He was shun
Praise God for the life that was won for us
Ain’t got a beef with God, because the Son was Christ

„Look man, some people say that God ain’t real,
‚cause they don’t see how a good God can exists
with all this evil in the world.
If God is real then He should stop all this evil,
‚cause He’s all-powerful right? What is evil though man?
It’s anything that’s against God.
It’s anything morally bad or wrong.
It’s murder, rape, stealing, lying, cheating.
But if we want God to stop evil, do we want Him to stop it all,
or just a little bit of it?
If He stops us from doing evil things,
what about lying, or what about our evil thoughts?
I mean, where do you stop, the murder level,
the lying level, or the thinking level?
If we want Him to stop evil, we gotta be consistent,
we can’t just pick and choose.
That means you and I would be eliminated right?
Because we think evil stuff.
If that’s true, we should be eliminated!
But thanks be to God that Jesus stepped in
to save us from our sin! Christ died for all evilness!
Repent, turn to Jesus man!“
