"A letter to Jay Z"

To all doves:
I Felt compelled to write the following because of the article I read about the "religion" which Jay z subscribes to. Please use discernment, and pass this on to those who listen to his music, or are intrigued by him, especially amongst our brothers and sisters in the African American community.
Warning! Read the following with Caution. I am choosing to respond to this despite the fact that it is intended to gain attention and to have shock value. I do so, for the many who will be led astray by this.


What you, Jay Z are promoting is nothing new, nor Noble, nor shocking in this world. Men have been making themselves out to be gods for centuries, all the while denying the Creator of all things. In Fact, Paul the Apostle wrote of people like you in his introduction to Romans some 2000 years ago.

"21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things." (Romans 1:21-23, ESV)

In not Honoring the ONE creator God, You are merely following the pattern set forth by millions of people in the World from The Point of Adams original sin. This was in fact the very deception used by the serpent to lead Adam and Eve to sin. "...your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God..." were his words in the deception. (Genesis 3:5)

This has and always will be the deception that Lucifer uses. The promise of "Illumination", and superiority To those who would bow to him in obedience, and thereby worship him. This is the delusion that your religion promotes. That's right; In declaring yourself, a mortal man, as god, you are doing nothing more than bowing down at the feet of Lucifer. You are placing yourself under the bondage of another master, only this one will carry you into bondage for all eternity. In declaring your freedom from the ONE true God, you have merely bound yourself to the father of lies and will join him in eternal wrath and punishment.

Paul continues in the aforementioned epistle to ask the following question:
"3 Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God?" (Romans 2:3) Absolutely NOT. That is the Truth with a capital T. It is from this Truth, that the Apostle Paul goes on to explain the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Roman readers.

I am a Christian, one who follows Christ Jesus. I do not follow a church, a Pope, or a preacher. Only Jesus. I have bowed down at the cross where he died to forgive my sins. In Submitting to him, and calling him Lord and Master, he has freed me from bondage, and wrath. In Submitting to his will, I am more free than I ever will be. Yes, this is counterintuitive. How can you be free, and call another master? Because Jesus is like no other man. Every other man, or man made god will oppress you, and make you a slave to all manner of ungodly lusts and passions. That is because anyone, or anything, can call themselves god, and demand your submission to them.

I am using the terms slave, Master and bondage, because that is what the African American community inherently understands. Many "whites", like myself fought against racism, bigotry and bias in our schools, businesses, families, and amongst our peers and church members. It saddens me to see you promoting a religion that will only put your "congregation" as you call it, back into slavery. May the Lord rebuke you for this!

To any African Americans who may be reading this, do not fall for this deception. It will only lead your people into further bondage. Just like the drugs that were pumped into your communities have led to bondage, this is nothing more than another drug that feeds the ego. Just like the government assistance led to the destruction of your families, felt good and just at first, but they led you to be dependent on these government handouts, and beholden to another master.

There is only one way to true freedom. It is not in a country, a political party, or a religion, or a rapper. It is through Jesus, who is the "way, the truth and the life". He is not a religion, or a church. He is the Living God. All you have to do is Repent, to turn away from the bondage of this world, and Believe that he is God, and that he died in order to save us. Irregardless of the color of our skin, our status in the world, or our gender. As Paul writes; " 11 For God shows no partiality." (Romans 2:11)

Follow Jesus, Not the teachings of mortal men.

God Bless.
