Can Rap be Christian?

Scott Aniol begins a series of podcasts with Michael Riley about whether rap can be legitimately used in Christian contexts.

Here are some good snippets from the last 4-5 minutes or so–

Form communicates something. If I’m going to represent God, I have to choose forms that say the same thing about God that the forms in Scripture say…it’s not just what they [authors of Scripture] say it’s how they say it…they say something that lets us feel a certain way about God. If it is true that inside the Bible form means something, then I am going to argue that outside the Bible form means something…we must not only say the same things about God that the Bible does, we must say them in the same way that the Bible says them.
