Rapper Rick Ross makes blasphemous song entitled “Holy Ghost”
By Kebony Smith, AT2W Contributing Writer
Saying music has gone to0 far is an understatement. For quite some time now we have seen hip hop artists in-particular, incorporate false religious ideologies into their music. But even worse than the promotion of counterfeit gods, is the blatant blasphemous behavior shown to our God.
Rick Ross’ latest mix-tape release includes a song featuring Sean “P.Diddy” Combs called “Holy Ghost”, but don’t let the title fool you. If you are expecting reverential praise and worship to the third person of the trinity, think again. While P.Diddy prays and asks the father to “protect him from brokeness”, Rick Ross twists scripture by saying “being dead broke is the root of all evil”. In addition, Ross claims to pray to the Holy Ghost while driving in different luxury cars, but says “I’m smoking til’ I overdose” just a few verses later. But this isn’t the first time Ross has surrounded holy terminology with filth. An album he released in 2010 had a song called Blowing Money Fast used ‘hallelujah” in its chorus.
Ross’ song is proof to the to fact that some wrongfully believe that the presence of fame, fortune and wealth means that God approves of their lifestyle no matter how contradictory it is to scripture. We have to look no further than the bible to see that riches does not equal righteousness. God consistently warns us in His word about how wealth can be deceitful and not to be our trust therein. Furthermore, God never has and never will endorse sin. It was His hate for sin that led Him to send His only begotten Son into world John 3:16. Several scriptures come to mind when pondering this matter, but this one sticks out the most:
“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one,and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.Ye cannot serve God and mammon”- Matthew 6:24 (NIV).
