Asking the right questions – Reformation21 Blog
Jeremy Walker at Reformation21 asks three very important questions relevant to the rap debate:
- In what ways can a Christian appreciate, enjoy and embrace either a form or genre of music in and of itself, or a particular instance of that form?
- To what extent is a certain form or genre an appropriate vehicle for the communication of distinctively Christian truth?
- Is a certain form or genre a legitimate and appropriate means for the corporate worship of the gathered church?
