JESUS IS KING ALBUM REVIEW

Album Reviews Apple Music Black Dads

 EVERYONE HAS DIFFERENT PATHS TO WALK IN LIFE. YOUR PATH WAS DECIDED ONCE YOU EXITED YOUR MOTHER’S WOMB. OUR PARENTS LAID THE FOUNDATION FOR US SO WE CAN BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF OURSELVES. IT’S ALWAYS BEEN STATED THAT Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”(PROVERBS 22:6). 

EVERYONE GOES THROUGH THIS PHASE WHERE WE WANT TO REBEL. MOST US DOUBTED WHAT OUR PARENTS TOLD US, SO WE HAD TO SEE FOR OURSELVES. MY MOTHER ALWAYS TOLD US AS CHILDREN, “EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER”. I CAN TELL YOU BUT IF YOU CHOOSE TO DEVIATETHEN YOU HAVE TO BE GROWN ENOUGH TO SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES. 

IN LIFE OUR CHOICES DICTATE WHAT TYPE OF PATH WE’RE GOING TO HAVE. I’M A FIRM BELIEVER THAT FOR EVERY ACTION, THERE’S A REACTION. YOU HAVE TO PREPARED FOR THE REACTION FOR THE CHOICES YOU MAKE. 

WHEN KANYE WEST SAID HE WAS GOING TO MAKE A GOSPEL RECORDEVERYONE LOST THEIR MINDS. THEY SAID HE’S PLAYING WITH THE LORD ETC. I UNDERSTOOD WHY HE MADE IT, AFTER LISTENING TO THE RECORD.  

THIS MAN IS AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS CAREER AND HE’S BEEN RAVAGED IN THE MEDIA. BY NO MEANS AM I SAYING HE’S INNOCENT FROM THE HARM HE’S BROUGHT ON HIMSELF. WHAT MOST PEOPLE FAIL TO REMEMBER IS THAT WHAT GOES UP, MUST COME DOWN.  

HE LOST HIS MOTHER, WHO HE WAS EXTREMELY CLOSE TO. IT WAS OBVIOUS THE EFFECT THIS LOST HAD ON HIM BECAUSE HIS MUSIC, MANNERISM, AND TEMPERAMENT CHANGED. IF YOU NEVER LOST A PARENT THEN DON’T JUDGE. LOSING PARENT CHANGES YOU FOREVER. YOU’LL NEVER BE THE SAME. YOU CAN’T JUDGE SOMEONE IF YOU’VE NEVER WALKED THEIR PATH. IT’S EASY TO TALK WHEN YOU HAVEN’T TRAVELED THAT ROAD. 

ONE THING I COMMEND WEST ON IS CHALLENGING CHRISTIANS TO LOOK AT THEMSELVES INTHE MIRROR. THE ELDERS ARE ALWAYS ASKING WHY ARENT MILLENIALS IN THE CHURCH. LOOK AT HOW WEST WAS TREATED? THIS MAN HAS ACKNOWLEDGED THAT HE’S FALLEN SHORT OF GLORY. This righteousness is given through faith in[a] Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.  (Romans 3:22-24) 

 NOW, I DON’T CLAIM TO BE A BIBLE SCHOLAR BUT IF OLDER CHRISTIANS ARE TRYING TO GET YOUNGER PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH. THEN THEY HAVE TO STOP BEING SO JUDGEMENTAL. FRED HAMMOND DID A SONG WITH WEST WHICH SUBJECTED HIM TO PUBLIC SCRUTINY. HAMMOND ALSO STATED THAT HE LOST FRIENDSHIPS BEHIND THE COLLABORATION. WHAT HAPPENED TO GRACE? JUST LIKE TASHA PAGE-LOCKHART'S SONG “DIFFERENT”.  YOU SHOULDN’T HOLD A PERSON’S PAST AGAINST THEM, DO YOUR PEERS JUDGE YOU FOR YOUR INDESCRECTIONS? DON’T DO ANYTHING THAT YOU WOULDN’T WANT DONE TO YOU. WE AS CHRISTIANS HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT GOD AND LOVE SHOULD BE AT THE CORE.  IF WE ARE TRULY BELIEVERS THEN WE HAVE TO GOVERN OURSELVES ACCORDINGLY. 

 

 EVEN PASTOR JAMAL BRYANT STATED HE’S FACED SOME SCRUTINY FOR HAVING WEST AT HIS CHURCH. LET’S BE HONEST, MILLENIALS ARENT RUNNING TO THE CHURCHS LIKE THE SENIOR CITIZENS. EVEN BRYANT HAS STATED IF COLLABORATING WITH WEST WILL HELP HIM SAVE MORE OF THE YOUTH THEN HE’LL TAKE THE SOCIAL PERSECUTION. WEST HAS NEVER BEEN SHY ABOUT HIS CHRISTIAN ROOTS. QUITE FRANKLY THIS JOURNEY IS HIM COMING FULL CIRCLE.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRUE FANS THIS IS OBVIOUS. HONESTLY, HE’S DOING EVERYTHING A MAN IS SUPPOSED TO DO FOR HIS FAMILY. THE BIBLE EVEN SAYS IT: A MAN IS SUPPOSE TO LEAD THE HOME, PROTECT AND PROVIDE. IF HE WERENT DOING THESE THINGS THEN SOCIETY WOULD BE CALLING HIM A POMPOUS BUM ETC. SO, THAT GOES TO SHOW YOU CAN NEVER LIVE YOUR LIFE TO PLEASE PEOPLE. YOU’LL DIE UNHAPPY BECAUSE IT’S ALWAYS GOING TO BE A PERSON WHO WILL DISSATISFIED.
