Joe Salant is a figure who has gained notoriety as the “Apologetics Rapper,” a title he earned by fusing evangelical teachings with the art of rap. Salant has leveraged his platform to advocate for Christianity by integrating conservative religious views into mainstream dialogue. While he may have caught public attention with his unique blend of music and theology, recent developments concerning his involvement with Safrax, a company selling potentially harmful products, raise serious questions about his integrity and the true motivation behind his public persona.

Joe Salant, an evangelical “pastor” and rapper once recognized for his 2015 rap song supporting Sen. Ted Cruz, is now making headlines for entirely different and deeply troubling reasons. According to a recent article in Vice, Salant is the new U.S. spokesman for Safrax, a company that sells industrial-strength bleach tablets. Interestingly, these tablets are popular among those who believe that ingesting bleach can cure various ailments, including autism in children—and Salant openly admitted, according to the article, that many of his customers are using it for that purpose.

While Salant claims to advocate for a Christian worldview, one must ask whether his actions align with Christianity. The answer is: of course not. In a world that is perishing, the Bible calls us to a higher standard. “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience” (Colossians 3:12). Advocating for a product that is misleadingly touted as a cure for autism, clearly falls short of biblical love.

It’s disheartening, yet not entirely surprising, to see Salant’s actions as another example of faux Christians and Christian entertainers using the name of Christ to exploit Him for personal gain. For generations, charlatans have stood behind pulpits and in the public square proclaiming a twisted version of Christianity that serves their own interests rather than the kingdom of God. Such actions blaspheme the name of Christ and are an affront to the biblical truths we proclaim. The Apostle Paul cautioned against such individuals when he said, “For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:13).

The narrative surrounding Salant and Safrax is not an isolated incident—it reflects a broader culture of self-interest and a disregard for biblical teachings among some claiming to represent Christian views. For those who live uncompromisingly by the truth of Scripture, it is our responsibility to expose these false teachers.
