Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and turn to God, so that your sins may be blotted out, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God, so that you can stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
Let's face it - people like that style of music because it appeals to the allure of the flesh. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life - 1 John 2:16. But. call it 'art' and it's 'all good'.
People are offended that God is God.
The Secret Service should arrest Snoop Doggie Dude and the Attorney General should prosecute him for a public death threat against the President of the U.S. That, by the way, IS a Felony!
But, they won't.................afraid to fight it out in Court........because Dawggie's Lawyers will argue the First Amendment. Even though the First Amendment does not PROTECT people from being punished for Felony offenses.
I'm not sure his music video "promotes" gun violence. I mean, do first person shooter games promote violence? If you ask adults 10-20 years ago the answer was "yes". Since studying humor behavior and the affects of violent games, they (professionals) have concluded gamers are not more likely to commits acts of violence... some studies suggest they are even less likely to do it as counter-intuitive as it might sound.
(This isn't a defense for him or his music by the way. I don't like it whatsoever, but just because I don't like it doesn't mean I'm going to say it "promotes" violence.)
What if a white guy made a video about shooting obama?
Whats going on is a desensitizing of what is good and normal in our eyes. Good thing God gave us the Bible for what is Truth and Light
Look at movies and shows from the 50's and 60;s. Music for the most part was positive. TV had good positive family shows. Very innocent TV shows. Darn things are so innocent for today's standards that they are hard to watch.
Now days most everything is about murder ,killings, lust, cheating, disrespect, gay lifestyles, dysfunctional family's, profanity, stressful situations , etc. This is now the New Normal. Thats what the entertainment industry wants us to believe. The bar keeps on being set lower. Same sex marriage. transgender is normal. Whats next, Marriage between people and animal?
Lots of what is going on the world calls as being Progressive? Taking a Biblical view. This is pure darkness at work
