  7. I love that they use the sample from "Low." I can't tell you how many times I've danced to that song without "leaving room for the Holy Spirit." I'm sure there's plenty in this audience who are the same way, especially in the 16-25 age range.

  8. I love that they use the sample from Flo Rida's "Low" for this song. I couldn't count how many times I've danced to that song without "leaving room for the Holy Spirit," as many a homecoming chaperone called it when I was in HS. Certainly plenty of people in this 16-25 yr. old range of this crowd have probably done the same, and are really just doing face time at this dumb concert to please their parents.

  9. Reminds me of 'Mr. Deity and the Book, Part Deux':
    "not a prohebition, I just want them to look stupid when they dance."

  10. - Watch it on YouTube and look at related videos. Churchs pay these guys to come in an do this. Perhaps a gulit-refresher they don't want to do themselves when they have to look these people in the face week after week? Much like the mob it's easier to have a 'hired agent' come in an plant the seeds. We can't all be as stone-cold as Mike Murdock - they need some help being heartless.

    The second version is worse, they dress as accountants instead of what this crap was.

  14. This just makes me picture Jesus in a pimp hat and gold rings. "Where's my ten percent? Is the lamb of god gonna have to choke a bitch?"

     That is hilarious Neil. 

    I assume that is from Chapelle's show with Wayne Brady.

  22. Maybe it's the sound system, but they don't seem very enthused responding with "10".

  24. <span>Luring kids to give money to the church via a lyrically impotent rap song... despicable.

    Their god really needs 10% from you for every 100% he gives? Okay, let's think about this in a few areas...<span>

    MATH: If you give 10% once a week when you go to church, that must be a percentage of the 100% their god gives OVER THE SPAN of one week (I'll assume he's giving on the seventh day, too). Which means their god is only giving 14.28% every day, to total 100% for the week. (Unless their god is actually giving 100% every day in which case at the end of the week he's given 700% Now, the money givers in the pews are looking at 10% of 700, not 10% of 100! They've just been ripped off!)

    TRANSLATION: They're being asked to give 10% back. Are they asking you give back in the same way god gives? Meaning, if god gives you 100% food, shelter, and health, are they to give god 10% of food, shelter, and health? Probably not. I'm guessing they mean MONEY. So I wonder how this all translates. What is 10% of what god gives converted to the US dollar? And if the US dollars value changes because of inflation, does the value of their god's 100% also change?

    LOGIC: If their god is perfect, why does he need money? What does he do with it? In fact, why does their god need anything back at all? Where does it say in the bible that their god needs money back? Or really anything except to obey him? 

    ANSWERS: How will these rappers answer those in the pews who are dealing with any negative issues which are out of their hands? Issues that leave them unhealthy, struggling financially, etc? If they gave their 10%, and were promised to be "blessed all day from beginning to end." (@1:21) does that mean they were lied to? They are promised that if they "take it off the top" (@1:46) then they'll be like the rapper when they say "everything is good between god and me." (@1:51) So what do the rapper say to those who do NOT have everything good between their god and them?

    LITERAL: Now @2:46 The rapper asks what the crowds excuse is for not paying up now that they know their gods deal. Funny, he says they shouldn't play with "gods money." So, now they're talking literal money? Does this now mean that the crowd must give god back 10% of the magical money he gives them? What if they never see a single bill spring into existence from thin air? Do they pay nothing that week? How do they know what money comes from god, if their paychecks are always from say, their job?

    LITERAL: They continue: "Where's your heart? Just follow the cash, I'm storing up mine in a heavenly stash." (@2:54) Again, they're throwing out the word "cash" and referring to a "stash", so at this point they really MUST be talking about literal money. If not, they've wasted a full song writing about something they don't ACTUALLY mean. And again, what does god do with the actual money? How is the money given to god? Do they have a burnt offering and set the money ablaze? Also again, there is nothing in the Bible that I've seen that says in order to please god you have to give money, literal or otherwise to him.

    The tragedy here, is that these rappers could have at least saved a little face by changing the lyrics in their rap, and say that the money goes to fund the Church, to give these people a community every week.</span></span>
