This is offensive on so many levels, I can’t even muster the words. The worst thing is that he is selling these cds and dvds with full margins trying to make a profit. And he probably has convinced plenty of church’s to pay for his appearances. Link

    I will try to keep it short and sweet. Mr. Lewis has done an excellent job at finding a subject and then using the Bible to back his point. This is what we call isogesis. That means finding something you want and reading it into the Bible. Now, Mr. Lewis always talks about a guy named Duce, aka the Ambassador from the Christian hip hop group the Crossmovement. Duce is known for exegesis. This is taking the Scriptures to mean what they mean and then applying its meaning to life in the proper way. So if the Bible doesn’t speak about something, Duce wont say the Bible is saying something.
    I’m sorry, but many of you on this discussion need to come off. You have no understanding of the Bible and you do not have the Holy Spirit within you to be able to even discern these issues. Some of you who are Christians but still support this idea that G. Craige Lewis is right when he says you need to take things that are not inherently evil out of your lives in order to be Christians need to read the book of Galatians. READ THE BOOK OF GALATIANS. We see that Paul is deeply concerned with these individuals who have been adding to the Gospel. Who have said, “You need to do this or this to be saved. You should not do this or this, or else you aren’t saved.” No. Read Galatians and then Ephesians. It is God who draws. It is God who saves. It is GOD. Not man. Calling something Hip hop will not remove you from His Kingdom (because hip hop is not in and of itself evil, it’s just what people do with it . . . kinda like art. so is Mr. Lewis saying art is evil?). Stop trusting this man who has bewitched you and told you that you must do something else to be saved. THAT is DEMONIC G. Craige Lewis supporters.

      Mr. Lewis is not bashing rap music, but Hip hop. Hip hop is a lifestyle. This lifestyle influences the way one thinks, walks , dresses, and acts. He has Christian rappers in his church whom he supports. He rejects the culture behind hip hop, not rap because it has a contrary influence to Christianity. Remember, Paul wrote not to be conformed to the world but be renewed in your mind. Christ rejects the culture of hip hop in Craig’s opinion because it is simply birthed in the world, not the Church. Should the church make homosexuals holy and say it is exceptable- no. So why should hip hop, another worldly characteristic be excepted. Rapping about God is great! Holy hip hop is false.

  2. Paul (Reply) on Mar 14, 2008

    First i Hate the state of Hip Hop Music, Second as a Christian we should not really need someone to tell us that its current state is Evil, really.

    It is said that many of the hymns were written to bar music and some of the Great men of God before us hated them and spoke that there worldy? Even the great song “Silent Night” – do you believe that? Then i would say if Gospel Hip Hop is bad then so must these Hyms because im sure these people in the bars were not thinking about the Goodness of The LORD while getting drunk.
    Someone said that Hip Hip is the root and if the root is evil then everything else is, i disagree! the root is music not hip hop. Do u know that most American Music is all born from negro spirituals then became gospel and this lead to R & B and the others? Now lets reason, do you like the current state of our R & B music? i would say no and i am sure u would too, but listen if the root is good (gospel) does that make it good also? Another thing, it seems that the bible says that The Devil lead the Worship in Heaven, he was kicked but worshp continued even though it seems that he was the director. know u would say God institued worship but i am sure He does not worship himself!
    Do you not think that God has put this creativity of “MUSIC” into man for his glory but the devil is perverting it. Desciples came to Jesus and said that others were working in “HIS NAME” and He said leave them alone because if they were not against him they were with him. Now if people get saved by the Gospel presented in Hip Hop and we come against it who are we really coming against? A House devided among itself cannot stand – this is a reason why the church is so week.
    Look the Apostle Paul said we should become all things to all men without sinning “THAT WE MAY WIN SOME”- is this Gospel Hip Hop sin? He also used secular poems to bring Gods message across Acts 17:28 in Athens he quoted one of there greek poets “In Him we live and move…” another thing he did in this same Chapter 17:23 – was use their idolatry to bring them to the Knowledge of Jesus. On their alter it said “To An Unkown God” the Apostle Paul realizing that the soul of man is most important, told them that he could tell them about the God they did not know as yet, Simply Brilliant! he did not call them idolaters and leave he used what was false and evil to proclaim the truth of Christ our LORD! Now should we not use the Alter of this “Evil” Hip Hop to bring the message of Christ to them (God Loves them too) because it is not being sinful that sends u to hell but rather being born a sinner. Many will not go into a Church and really Christs ministry was not in the four walls! listen to me! Many will not listen to a preacher or a hymn being sung many times and many people have lost the trust in the church and as a christian i understand. I Believe these Christian rappers r essential but the Church is fighting itself therefore weakening these soldiers.
    Let me tell a true story – my friend is a Gospel DJ and one night i went with him and he played some gospel reggae, hip hop etc and the Pastor had the young people form a prayer line and i can tell u, i saw people saved and delivered, TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
    One more thing Children of God, not because God uses someone does that make the same person right, ok. I know of someone who was in an Adulterous affair and was still casting out demons and healing people. “The gifts and the calling of God are without repentance”.

    My views are in no way against the man of God but just my veiws! only GOD has it right all the time and this is how i feel with what i can see from the Bible!

    Be Blessed and whether we agree or disagree lets worship God with our lives and love eachother sinners into the Kingdom!

    Again Jesus said a house divided cannot stand – this refering to the Devil and his Demons now how much more do we as The Children of God need to be one even if our prefrences differ apart from the core values of our faith!

  3. Paul (Reply) on Mar 15, 2008

    Someone said God doesnt need the worlds crap to bless Him! so music is of the devil? i do not understand because if u take lyrics away from music they are nothing but instrumentals, no? how would u know to glorify God if not by the words? Anyway Music that praises God has changed, if there was one way to praise God we would be using hebrew songs and not music what we call Gospel and Hymns (I bet u can find hebrew songs with the same flovor singing about something other that Yahweh). I cannot understand how u expect someone that was born in a certain time and culture to all of sudden not be who they are. So the internet was not made by a Chritsian but here we are using to debate this, Glorifying God on it? im confused by Christians who are so deep. Another thing suits (clothing), now this is how we say a Christian men should dress, why? How many gangsters, croocked politicians and pimps have worn this garment yet we do not disassociate ourselves with it but rather we lie to ourselves thinking that they are better people, MY GOD! so how far do we take this God not needing worldly things? or does it only pertain to music? that would make no sense as the Word says whether we eat or drink we should do it to the glory of God. Listen if u go to Africa there is going to be gospel with their traditinal beats, same with the caribbean. Listen its about the Gospel and at the end we have to give an account to God. I love GOOD gospel Hip Hop and have been convicted many a time! I ask u one question, is it possible that these bringing Gospel Hip Hop could have heard from God to bring the Ghetto youth into the Kingdom?

  4. Paul (Reply) on Mar 15, 2008

    One more thing “WORLDLY” means the worlds ideas and SINFUL practices! U know i was rejected, kicked out of a Church and lied on by Suit wearing people who did not like this form of Gospel and loved and accepted by my Present Pastor who loves it!

  5. Sakhekile T. Dube (Reply) on Mar 18, 2008

    Firstly, i would like to thank the Lord God Almighty by whom all things are possible.
    if you truly are a Holy Spirit-filled born-again Chrisitian, then you would know without a shadow of doubt that what Elder Craige Lewis speaks is the truth. God has sent him with a message to save souls. Do you see the unfathomable love of the father here. Irregardless of the fact that He sent His only Son as a sacrifice to bring us out of bondage, He still continues to direct our paths because He loves us so much and doesn’t want us to perish. We all know that the devil doesn’t love anybody but himself and all he has ever tried to do since he was cast down is to try and destroy us. He wants us to worship him, he wants to be glorified. He knows that God loves us so much and will never give us up without a fight, we are His creation, the apples of His eye. And the devil can’t stand it. he wanted to be more exalted than Jesus when he was in heaven and that’s when God threw him out because he was growing too big for his boots.

    God is really amazing, He is love and can you imagine He is still giving satan the time to repent. But because he is stubborn (and extremely stupid) satan doesn’t want to change. he’s still trying to prove that he’s the greatest and he will do anything to get his way. Remember he used to be the sound of the morning, when God cast him down, He didn’t take that gift away from him (that’s the thing with God, when He gives you something, He has given it. nobody can take it away. that’s what makes Him mighty because He doesn’t go back on His word and He never lies). Satan can still make music and he is using hip-hop to play in every kind of demonic evil into the spirits of the people of the world. it doesn’t matter how good it sounds or how good all these artists look when they are performing – if it’s not from God then it’s not for Him. tht’a the trouble with the world, all people care about is being rich and famous and they forget that with the devil it’s always at a price – your spirit and your soul.

    Who would have ever thought that satan would cause people to worship him through all kinds of un-Godly music? Can you imagine if God hadn’t given this message to Elder Lewis, most Christians wuold be lost with the rest of the world.
    Thank you Elder Lewis, for God has chosen you. He has deemed you worthy to be a vessel unto His honour and i say it’s time for us as Christians to be able to recognise the voice of the Holy Spirit when He speaks. if you choose not to believe it, then you must remember that you will deal with God – not with Jay-Z, Missy Elliot, etc. Because He never changes and His word is Amen and Amen

      Amen! Wonderful post. I felt that from within! I am filled with the Holy Spirit and am asking for a discerning of spirits. Everything Pastor Lewis speaks is of God! I thank the good Lord that he anointed this man with TRUTH!

      Amen! I totally agree with your post! Because of Pastor G.Craige, my life has changed! I no longer listen to hip hop and with all honesty,I feel so much better! I really feel it in my heart that all of his messages come from the Lord! Praise the Lord!

  6. Boitumelo Ramafole (Reply) on May 28, 2008

    I seen this video countless times and i love it.a lot of people seem to be defending hip hop. if it is ok then why is it that it does not glorify God? i just want to say thank you Lord!! if i had not seen that DVD i’d still be serving two gods. i would have not realised the impact that the music has. Minister C.Lewis- sir i’m greatful to the Lord that he chose you but most importantly that you obeyed his call and let everyone know what was happening. i stopped listening to circular music last year when i first saw this DVD and since then, i have seen a lot of change in my spiritual walk. God bless you!!

  7. Minster Lewis Watts (Reply) on Jun 28, 2008

    I want to start by saying TO GOD BE THE GLORY! Thank you Elder Lewis for answering the call on your life and for being obedient no matter the cost.This series has bless my life and the people of God around me.My mother preach this to me ten years ago and through you it was all confirmed.People all over the world need to take heed to what this great man of GOD is saying.We are in the end times and we need to obey what God says and live right and to also preach this same message to family and friends who are hooked or could become hooked on Hip Hop.Stop the enemy in his tracks by spreading this message! May god continue to bless G.Craige Lewis Ministries and His Family.

  8. MOHLABA (Reply) on Aug 13, 2008

    Believe it or not, but you cannot please God with HIPHOP music.I wonder when christian says they are filled with Holy spirit and still listen to anything they like, do whatever pleases them. When you accept Jesus as the Lord and personal saviour, you are no longer living yuor life. There are regulation about this life,thus why Paul said it is no longer me who lived, but Christ in me. Stop doing as you like and lead by the Holy spirit.

  9. stelly (Reply) on Sep 15, 2008

  11. Aimee (Reply) on Oct 11, 2008

    You know my mom always used to tell me “Put off that music!” and I always got angry when she told me that, but everytime when music plays she always keeps quiet instead of singing with and at the time it just looked strange,so I asked her why she looks as if she’s in a daze she told me it’s because she’s listening to the lyrics. So as years went by I accepted the LORD in my life and our youth leader showed this dvd of EXministries and it reminded me of all the songs that I just could not get out of my mind like that song of Sean Kingston- SUICIDAL! and I just cut it off in Jesus name. But the one thing i’m glad of is that this warning came just the right because I’m a spiritual dancer so i’m surrounded by music everyday and try out different things. So it’s best to get ready people because jugdement day is near, but no matter what happens always trust God.
    God bless

  12. If you have seen/heard Lewis’ message and don’t feel compelled as a Christian to oppose hip-hop culture in every facet then you have a lot more maturing to do as a Christian and I’m not sorry to tell you this. I personally am a devoted enemy of hip-hop and I hope you will take the meat and leave the bones in Lewis’ message. Much love.

    Dear G. Lewis Creg

    My Brother you are doing a well done job continue serving the Lord to the most of your ability, don’t worry about those who uttering ill about you and the ministry God has given you.
    I am a Kenyan live in Mombasa, it happened that I stumbled on your CD with a brother who happened to have came from US and that sermon has changed so many young peoples lives about hip hop, I have personally done a research a bout all you taught and all is true.
    yes, yes, yes and yes hip hop originated from the devil and promotes lucifer himself in the church today without our knowledge.
    Pastors and church leaders stop hip hop in Gods house Amen.

  14. Adiel Danda (Reply) on Feb 17, 2009

    The truth shall set man free, so let the truth be told. The kingdom of GOD has no room for compromise, GOD is HOLY and thus HE requires us to be HOLY. The message of Elder Craig Lewis is the truth and nothing but the truth.

    It now remains for us to act according to the truth. Let those that have ears hear what the spirit is saying to the people. God is our father and it is HIS responsibility to bring correction where the need arises and now the truth has come through exministries.

    Tell the truth and put the devil to shame.GOD BLESS

    One more thing,the church does not understand that we r livin in the end times,we want to be pampered by useless soft motivational sermons instead of being bomberd by truth bcs the Gospel confrants to repentance, so i edge everyone who says the man of God is judjemental 2 pls read abt the life of Jesus and the apostles how radical they were,u see theres a very thine line btwn judjing and telling de truth and i think we need to draw a thicker line by reading the word,ul found that most of these people dont even read and by the way if u dont have the word in u there must be something else probably the one that makes u blind,soft and slow,this thing inside u makes u think that God brings people to salvation thru music,no my brother its not by music nor by beats or even preaching but by the spirit. But i undestand its not u but the thing inside u, il advise u 2 get rid of it bcs God wants to use u and u r bizy holding on to this music of Babylon yes we understand that God created it but he wants u to come out of it and be separated for use of the kingdom,so pls get a life in the spirit,dont play with fire u’ll burn.

  18. Andile (Reply) on Oct 9, 2009

    Firstly, let me start by saying I love Pastor Craig Lewis first DVD when he exposed all the lies of Hip-Hop and how it came about.I always have a problem with Bone Thugs and his videos and their music and ther’s nothing fruitful you can found in Hip-Hop music and young people need to be aware about that,so thank you Pastor Lewis for that one because the idea came from the pit of hell and I also agree with the brothers who say that the church does not compromise.
    Poeple need to have a relationship with the Holy Spirit and a personal relationship with God not a church relationship and be obedient to what God is telling you even if people does not understand.In Jerusalem people did not understand Mary when he was pregnant before marriage and even Joseph was willing to break up with her because he said that to the elders but it took the angel to convince him because Mary said “let your will be done”.
    As much as I love Pastor Craig Lewis but he must not condemn something which he don’t know,because he don’t know the guys who are singing Gospel Hip-Hop their relationship with God and what had said to them with regards to this kind of music.
    In the book of Daniel,the Israelites where in captivity and they were strip off of their wear,their turbans and lines and they wear like Babylonians and Daniel was given a name of a god (Belteshazzar)and God Himself sent them to Babylon and God said to them,marry and give you daughters to marriage and build houses and plant vineyards.Bear in mind Babylon was the most corrupt place in those days.
    I’m playing basketball and in years back I wanted to quit basketbal because of religeous people and I quit for a short time because they said what I was doing was not in line with God,but God spoke to me in an audible voiceand said”I must go back to basketball”.I did that because God had spoken and I did’nt about what man do to me because”I rather listern to God than man”.
    Now 75% of my teammates rerceive Christ through my sharing of the Gospel with them and they’re strong in their faith and they also sharing the good news with other teams as well.
    What I’m saying is that we don’t know what God is doing in that area of Hip-Hop through these guys because it does not mean that because a person is practicing occult,he cannot be born again instead he must just go to hell but bear in mind our God’s desire is that all man should be born again and come to the knowledge of the truth,so I believe God is using these to prclaim the message in that area as he used me in basketball to praclaim the message instead of condemning them let’s pray that the will of God may be done in their lives and used them mightily in tha area.
    Let’s not contain God because he’s all powerful God.God used His people to proclaim the message of hope in Babylon that means that He can also people to proclaim His through Hip-Hop because God can use anything.
    Presently I’m with the (Atletes in Action)AIA and I’m doing sports ministry and p[eople are getting saved and their growing in their faith as well.
    I understand Pastor Lewis because soemtimes we get so carried away by the revelation and we thought that’s our lifestyle in a way if God said to me I must cast demons to that specific man and I did that and they obeyed me, that does’nt mean that I must go around chasing for demons.That’s what Pastor Lewis did God reveal the secrets of occultic Hip-Hop to him and now he’s chasing by the name of Hip-Hop.That’s why I said first his first dvd was real and you can see that it was a revelation from above and ther’s nothing wrong if he wait for another revelation or preach the same revelation over and over because the revelation will never run out of time but now he’s trying to impress.I understand these errors because everybody make errors and therfore we cannot judge him as well we’re all learning in this faith.

    I have to run
    God Bless you All

    it seems like we are in the end time and people are mostly attracted to the world’s leisure included music that star praise the Devil cause nothing good they sing within their song only bullshit and we people enjoy that is really the Devil that manifest with its mark of Beast let’s get serious of things cause we once live,for me i chose Jesus to live forever and escape my soul from the dirty world’s things
    and you my brother i know you will read my message about your salvation is in Christ or in the thing of this world with a Satanic music we meet all over.It is time to choose.

    Thank you elder Craig for your message,it was very informative and has shattered the shells covering my spiritual eyes.I am a youth leader and yes this revelation is very relevant cos our youth are going astray with all the misinformation surrounding this genre of music,if we can agree to call it that ,cos all it amounts to is a lot of noise and self glorification.Yes ,many of us were shocked by these revelations,but that is probably the purpose of the author,in order for us to wake from our spiritual slumber.I encourage many more christians to spread this possitive message so that satan and his evil works can be exposed.I cannot thank you enough for what this material has done for me and the (youth)organisation i lead.Perservere for His sake and stay blessed my brother.And now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all,now and forever more..Amen

    christianity is a personal race between everyman and GOD. after listening to the message of pastor craig, i was convicted in my soul that it is the truth.for years i had battled with an addiction to secular music, and my testimony from this experience is that it fed my flesh and silenced the voice of GOD in my spirit. if you can not marry your personal experiences with the message of pastor lewis then all i can say is that you’re yet to have an encounter that will lead to your conviction. for years i’d known that there was something wrong with hiphop(and secular music). i just couldn’t put my finger on it till i heard the message from pastor craig. to GOD be all the glory, GOD is sendin forth his word and delivering all his people that have the understanding that they need to be delivered.

    I have just seen the DVD[THE TRUTH ABOUT HIP HOP]. I am a 23 year old young lady and about to get married, this was the most eye opening message i had received in a very long time. It is so true because while watching the dvd i realised that our churches has really lost the way in trying to bring young people close to God. You really can’t use the enemy to get through to young people, you need to save them from the enemy. The enemy has taken over so many of our children that we are being left with like pastor said thugs in middle school. I myself am a teenage mother but Jesus showed me that His Father Our God does give a second chance and today i can proudly say the LORD IS THE WAY,THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE. My fiance and i are taking it one day at a time and with the help of God we make it through all the difficult times. As most people we were blinded by what is called modern music but thanks to this dvd’s we can see the truth and bring our child up the way the LORD wants us to. THANK YOU IN ABUNDANCE PASTOR CRAIG. MAY THE LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU AND GIVE YOU STRENGTH TO CONTINUE WITH HIS WORK IN THE NAME OF JESUS AMEN.

My late Pastor always tought us not to listen to circular music and I never knew why but I knew he would not say that I should not do something if it was good. But man of GOD Pastor Lewis thank you for allowing GOD to use you in a mighty way. Last night we played the DVD for the youth in our church & I saw a change & GOD is busy with those children. I wish I could have more of these for them to watch…. GOD bless you In the NAME OF JESUS…who died & rose again and now sitted on the right hand side of the father.

    If you take a look at the youths today, notice the collapse of the moral values and the christian moral values. Doesn’t that just send a message to your spirit that something has definately gone wrong. The word of God talks of parents having to train up a child in away he should go so that when he grows he will not depart from it.

    Nowadays parents have left their children at the “mercy” of Television sets,taking in anything that comes there way. And so when they grow up, only Jesus can turn them around if they still have an ear to hear Him. Abortions, murder, drunkard and of course the infection that needs no introduction…..HIV/AIDS.

    I am not yet a parent but one day, soon I will be; parents really need to wake up and fight, resist the devil and he will flee. Never leave room for experimenting or negotiations, what I would call dicing with the devil!If you were to ask Eve she would tell you that’s a no go area. Flee like Joseph from Portipha’s wife, what does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his own soul(Matthew 16). We can not stand aside and watch while the devil administers poison into the mind of God’s people, preaching a gospel that is anti-Christ(opposing the teachings and existence of Christ.

    Min. Craig Lewis is someone who working to accomplish the purpose of Christ as revealed in 1John 3, let us understand that we have only one enemy; let point the gun at him.

    This message is true, this message is real; keep the faith, not the mob(majority).

    If anyone have problem with the truth given to the by the Divine Spirit of God, he/she should confront the Holy Spirit of His ignorance…… Ministers of the Gospel have no power on their own and are only messangers of the Gospel. They are least on the list to be approached but Christ Jesus, the Highest Divine Personality,will be the best to approach. Great work ministers of Gospels and of the Cross.

    This truths behind hip hop has changed the life of many youth. I was looking for a way to approach my own colleagues but God directed me to be at home at exactly 3pm when I was moving out with friends. I got with an expertancy of a great thing; not knowing this (the truth behind Hip hop video) was one of the greatest gifts God has given to us–the youth. I made it known to my friends and those addicted to smoking, films, ponographic things, etc had a trnsformation. Even those having hip hop discs got rid of them all and rejected their worldly lifestyles. This is what I was talking about; the transformation of the ‘old man’ to the ‘new man’s of divinity and eternity.’ God bless EX MINISTRIES, ministers of the cross and the church….not religion.

    Well my answer to all this is very simple. Music finds its origin in heaven. I did not say Hip Hop. God created music but Satan brings a twist into what has already being created. I think there are some demonic attachments to all kinds of music especially when the artists, songwriter ect. has demonic strongholds upon his life. Hip Hop I believe can be redeemed by the blood of Jesus. The devil did not created anything. He uses what has been created already and then deceives man.

Do not through the baby out with the bath water. If some lyrics are bad in some Hip Hop songs and including the explicit behaviour of many artist, it does not mean the Hip Hop is all from the devil…:-D

    I recently learnt about the New Age Movement where Satan has cleverly hidden his deceptions in the form of music, movies and books. When I saw the DVD by Elder Lewis I said “to God be the glory!” I am convinced without a doubt that this is TRUTH and revealed by GOD. Elder Lewis has been the instrument chosen by God to reveal this truth to us. Before condemning him, do research for yourself about the topics mentioned like the origin of the rastafarian culture, the “club”, the method used by witches to cast spells and the Egyptian Gods and culture. I loved Neo Soul music like many people, but I will not be ignorant concerning the truth that has now been revealed to me. It makes me wonder how much negativity I am already watched, sung and read into my life through the deceptions of the devil. Thanks be to God for His grace that can pardon our sins and make us as white as snow.
    Remember, Satan is like a rearing lion seeking whom he may devour and he is using one of his greatest deception ever to keep people from enjoying the peace that Christ can give us through obeying His commandment.
    Christ has gone to prepare a place for us and He has promised to come again to take us home with Him where we will have eternal life. What an incredible promise!! Let us not miss out on the joy of eternal life.

    Its so scary that believers who claim to be filled with the H.Spirit and who know’s the Word cover to cover can defend the devil so public, i mean Jay-zee does not even hide it, and in every song/video they all show us who they are worshipping – then u find some so called ‘spirit filled’ Christian defending it and accusing the servant of God. This is so concerning if Spirit filled believer can sing along….’life begins when the church ends’……’as God turned stones into bread’….seriously you need to examine yourself if you are Spirit filled/spirit filled.
    we need more ppl to obey the Lord and expose the works of the devil, whoever does not like – then deal with it. imagine the videos of these ppl, lady gaga, beyonce etc…and u stand there and tell us it’s all a liar…come on believers. I’m afraid of what Paul would call you for being blind and deaf….Its about time the church speaks against these things, how dare they blasphemy against our God when were are His ambassadors on earth?

    My guns are loaded, and I will be at the ready when all his weak minded “cult-like” church member go haywire. Believe me, they will! He has them brainwashed and I have witnessed it as well as lived it. He has done nothing more than found a way to exploit religon to make money… think before you respond

    Let me explain Mr. Lewis views of Holy Hip Hop! Mr. Lewis has explained that he has no problem with Christians rapping, in fact he supports the style from his church members who Christian rap. Here is what he is against, and lets get this clear to eliminate the confusion. The rejection comes in for Mr. Lewis when hip hop, a worldly art form is emulated by the church. Hip hip in his opinion is a lifestyle that was expressed by carnal folks who did not know God and adopted the culture in which personality is influenced, dress code, body language, swagger, and so on. According to Mr. Lewis revelation, this adopted lifestyle has an influence that is satanic because God does not promote it but the world does. This is the problem, not rap, but an adopted identity influenced by the world is.

    Exministries does not talk or behave like Jesus. Knowing they don’t talk like Jesus or act like Jesus who must they talk, and act like? That should not be hard to figure out. Going around trying to lift themselves up by putting others down is not what Jesus in us does in a human being. Good in good out, and vice versa.

    Those who belong to Jesus Christ will know His voice and hear Him speak. He will only speak of those things pertaining to The Lord God (Our Father Who Art in Heaven) and His Kingdom Agenda. (Book Of John covers this.)
    The enemy is out to steal, kill and destroy. He uses deception and lies as a tool to get the job done.
    (John 10:10 NIV)
    10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

    All Craig G. Lewis is doing, is bringing to our attention, how Hip Hop is being used as a vehicle (Tojan Horse) to trick, lure and trap our youth (or anyone) into the world of evil, through music. It is up to us to take the information and sift through it, research and compare it to the Word of God. Remember, the Holy Spirit of The Lord God will testify to our spirit that which is Truth. I have seen the video and I do appreciate how it made me look at things from a different perspective. I appreciate being able to choose because I am now aware.

    Something is seriously wrong with a lot of you all if you think there is anything ok with hip-hop. The people defending it – look at the way they are addressing it – they are getting so angry they can’t type correctly, has a failed thesis statement and introduction and writing dissertations to justify their flawed reasoning. Listen to what you’re saying, it doesn’t make sense. Stop trying to take the word and twist it to your liking. This man has not lied by far and I’m thankful that God has given him this message because there was a lot I did not know. Sad….
