Lecrae, who describes himself as a “rapper who happens to be Christian” and is “done with white Evangelicalism,” has taken a sharp turn in the last couple of years to align himself with the Pagan culture rather than the Kingdom of Christ. Over the last few years, Lecrae has made himself at home outside of the Church doors with Pagan rap artists who use regularly use foul language, degrade women, and make racial slurs in their lyrics. Lecrae is a staunch supporter of pro-choice Democrats, one radical pro-abortion Democrat, in particular, Stacy Abrams, and has downplayed the sinfulness of abortion and elevated what he perceives to be “racial injustice” above this murderous sin.
Deconstruction, which can be traced back to the philosopher Jacques Derrida, is defined by Oxford as:
a method of critical analysis of philosophical and literary language which emphasizes the internal workings of language and conceptual systems, the relational quality of meaning, and the assumptions implicit in forms of expression.
While this definition serves to help understand deconstruction in a general sense, modern religious deconstructionists have abused this method as a way to tear down the objective truth of biblical Christianity and delegitimize orthodox Christian doctrines and teachings in a way that is one-sided. Modern religious deconstructionists attempt to replace the author’s meaning in the biblical text with their own meaning and then create new, false religions out of their new interpretations.
Now. Lecrae has come out with a new song which he titled Deconstruction and in this song, he slams pastors like Voddie Baucham, John Piper, Tony Evans, and even former Hillsong pastor, Judah Smith, for telling him to man up after Michael Brown, who attempted to grab a police officer’s gun, was shot and killed by the police. Below are some of the lyrics to his song:
I would speak at churches, hang with leaders and such
You know, Judah, Piper, and Keller, Tony Evans was clutch
I was so involved, never thought that I could fall, y’all
Right before the fall of 2015, I was all off
It involved killing Michael Brown, had me feeling down
Tweeted ’bout it, Christians call me clown, I was losing ground
And Voddie was a hero of mine, met with him plenty times
This time, when he spoke, it cut me deeper than I realized
Doubled-down, spoke about my pain, I was met with blame
“Shame on you, ‘Crae, stop crying, get back to Jesus’ name”
Cut me deep, I was losing sleep, “God, ain’t these Your sheep?”
Why they hate me like they do? Maybe grace is really cheap
Maybe this is all a lie, they don’t really love me
They just love it when I say the things they wanna hear in public
They’re like following they God mean turnin’ on Black people
Is Black evil? Why do they hate and attack people?
I’m vulnerable and cautious, I’m reading Baldwin
Ta-Nehisi got me thinking, now I’m going all in
I ain’t know if God was real no mo’
