shai linne's reflections on the gospel, theology and hip-hop culture
Thank you. Loved them album and excited to look through the lyrics.
Absolutely love the album :) One question though: Was S.O. supposed to be featured in "Taste and See"? You said "Let's go S.O." in the beginning and I got really excited :/ Not that I dreaded the thought of a solo track by you, but because I was looking forward to a collab between you two ever since he got signed.Grace and peace
@Jimmy- I said "Let's go "Esso" lol. Talking about deejay essence, who was recording the session for that song. I guess that what happens when you sign artist with names that sound alike lol.
Thank you! I just downloaded all the lyrics for the new album!
Thanks for Jealous One. It's sad that speaking hard truths is considered an act of courage, but these days, it is courageous.
thanks for everything you are doing Shai. I am truly exulting in your work by the Spirit. Very few are proclaiming the full, true (glorious!) person of God, with each attribute of his character - I praise God that you are. Soli Deo Gloria.
Mate this is good stuff. Thanks for pointing us to God, powerfully.
Hey Shai,I think it's great that you decided to bring this topic up. I have to say I thoroughly enjoy being able to get feedback and information from you. I personally value being able to know who are listening to and where they stand on fundamental views. Being that this is no clear command in scripture ex. "Thou shall not..." for this situation but more of a principal, like Shai brought up, What does the scripture say?" That is our sole authority. Not culture and not our fleshly desires, but scripture. So the point being it must be individually applied to ourselves and whether we feel we can do this with a clear conscience. I don't want to continue on rambling but I think it's important to reinforce the point because we can on one side of the ditch fall into legalism and the other ditch license. And both of those are wickedness before a holy God. We must stay on the straight and narrow. I don't want anyone to think I am anti-music videos by saying this either but we must ask ourselves as God-fearing slaves of Christ 1) Does my actions gloify God? (1 Cor. 10:31)2) Will it help win souls? (1 Cor. 10:33)3) Is my conscience OK with it? (1 Cor. 8:12)4) Will this cause someone to stumble? (1 Cor. 8:13)5) Have I sought 2-3 godly counselors? (cf. Proverbs 11:14)6) Is this action an action which the unsaved associate with evil? In other words, will I be thought of an unchristian by the lost if I do this? (1 Cor. 10:32)8) Can i do this in faith, without doubt? (cf. Romans 14:23)9) Is this expedient? In other words, to my advantage and profitable? (1 Cor. 10:23)I hope this points you to the God's word for wisdom in this situation. Grace be with all those who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity.
I looooove this album. The lyrics are so strong, and it's such an amazing music experience. btw, They sent me some cool goodies in the mail with my CD. Great touch. Shai, God's really shining through you. What a wonderful gift. Thank God and thank you.
I love listening to this album and the Atonement on the way to work or after work to remind me what's truly important. It helps fill my mind with scripture and helps put the gospel be at the forefront of my mind to equip me for sharing. God has blessed you with an amazing gift. Thank you for using it for His glory.Soli Deo Gloria.
I have had the album since it came out and have listened to it so many time and just the other day when I was listening to it I hear The Jealous One in a way I never have before. It gives me shivers when I hear it and reminds me what God is able to do when we cheat on Him.
Thank you so much for posting these lyrics!! I love going through them with the Attributes instrumentals I found on Amazon MP3. I love how every word was so carefully chosen in its theology and rhyme.I don't know if it's worth editing, but on "All-Consuming Fire," verse 2, line 3, where it says, "He's regal and His policies are gloriously planed," I think it should be "planned." Anyway, I praise God for your ministry!!
