Hey, Near! Good to see ya! Here's my answer: Who are we to decide what is Christian and what is not? That's not our choice. It's up to Christ, I like to think. I was listening to some TobyMac on the internet the other month and the genre was specified as: "Christian Gangsta". Aren't gangsters hoodlums? Uneducated? Unemployed? Thieves? Bullies? Sage defines gangster as a criminal who is a member of a gang. Gangsta, hee hee hee. "Christian Gangsta". Anyway - I love to praise my Lord through TobyMac's music and I see nothing wrong with it. Just because some artists might use the same genre to communicate their sinful ways, it doesn't mean that Toby is going to use it for the same thing. Good to see you again, Near!
