If like me you are a black Christian, the chances are that you have either come from a black pentecostal type background or you are still part of it. You can read a bit of my background from my About Me section and from my post ‘Black church, White church : The dangers of being in a single-raced church’.  I left that style of church some time ago now and would say that I am more in the reformed camp now. As a person, my goal was one thing and one thing only. I just wanted to hear truth. Period.

The interview below is very enlightening and addresses some of the challenges between historically black churches and gospel-centered theology. Take a listen

If you look at my music category, you will see quite a few posts from artists on Reach Records. The reason for this is because I love the theology packed lyrical content in their music. Two artists on this label are Lecrae and Trip Lee. Below is a video where they talk frankly about their ministry.

For those interested, Lecrae’s new album, The Overdose, is now available . And here’s a blog post from Trip explaining that he’s taking a break from music to become an intern at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.

Around every corner is the lure to consume. A desire to be satisfied. Unfortunately no human being has found anything under the sun that brings satisfaction. So we consume more, and more, and more.  Eventually, we overdose. However, there is hope–if Christianity is our Rehab. In Jesus, satisfaction can be found. Grace, love, peace and hope can be found…and there is always more. Consume more of Jesus. Overdose. 

Rehab: The Overdose officially hits stores and online outlets 1.11.11.

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14)

Humanity has searched long and hard for answers to our ills, pains, and unsatisfying lives. While we were created emotionally, spiritually, and physically healthy, sin has caused us turn away from God and separated us from Him and His goodness. We need restoration, healing, and rehabilitation back to that original state of unity with God. Jesus is our rehabilitation. The Christian life is an entrance into Rehab.
