    During a segment called "The Ultimate Highlight", which is basically a string of highlights from the weekends biggest games, they played the song "Slam" by TobyMac.

    Tobymac is a Christian artist, and that song spoke clearly about Jesus and who he was. And they didnt edit a word!

    Christ was just clearly explained to about 20 million people! Praise GOD!!!!!

    DD--
    I had to google the words to this because I didn't know who Toby Mac was--obviously Christian rap? ABSOLUTELY PRAISE GOD that these words weren't edited!!! And if it WAS "rapped", then a whole bunch of folks just got their ears FULL of the Gospel! [​IMG]

    Jesus snatched the keys?? Just where is that in the Bible?

    NAS Revelation 1:18 and the (a)living One; and I (1b)was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have (c)the keys of death and of Hades.

    I see where Jesus has the keys, but I find no scripture to say they were ever out of his possession.

    Toby Mac was a member of DC Talk, but he also has several solo albums.

    I have no idea what on earth Diggin is talking about, but thats not unusual.

    Slam
    by TobyMac

    God's in this life if you like it or not
    So rip the knob off the volume when you give this a shot
    And raise your hands as the slam starts to thicken the plot
    Openin eyes to the lies of the enemies lot
    So run like the wind from the sin of your past
    Keep your eyes on the prize when they put you on blast
    It's the Christ on the cross, it's humanity's shot
    It's a worldwide call to everything that we're not

    This is the slam, this is the one
    This is the slam, this is the one

    This is the slam, this is the one
    We gonna do it like it ain't been done before
    This is the slam, this is the one
    We gonna bring it like it ain't been brung
    This is the slam, this is the one
    We gonna do it like it ain't been done before
    This is the slam this is the one
    We gonna spring you like you ain't been sprung

    They came from the cities and towns all around
    To see the longhaired preacher from the desert get down
    Waist high in water, never short on words, he said
    Repent, the kingdom of heaven can be yours
    But he stopped in the middle of his words and dropped
    Down to his knees and said, behold the Lamb of God
    He's the one, the slam, don't you people understand?
    You're staring at the son, God's reaching out his hand

    The father slammed it like Shaq
    For Latinos and Blacks
    Packin' them straps
    And Caucasians hooked on Ecstasy and the crack
    Stacked the sins of this world to his body
    And conquered evil and hell
    Then snatched the keys of death in one breath and unlocked the cell

    He rose on the third I'm tellin' you partner, its actual fact
    Just like TOBYMAC and Boney Soprano up on this track
    We slam dunkin and keep it jumpin like jumper cables
    And keep the crowd rowdy like Jesus tossin' them temple tables

    Ahh, for once, I should have known what you were talking about.

    However, I feel that your criticism is misled. Its a song, and I dont think that line is literal. It is not innaccurate to figuratively say that Jesus snatched the keys of death on the Cross. Before then, we were all dead in our sins. After that, we now all had access to eternal life. I dont think such teaching would be out of place at all in a Baptist church.

    I say the above being aware of the Word of Faith teaching, but I dont think Toby is a part of that. If I am wrong, so be it, but I am pretty sure this is a coincidence.

    However, I dont think any non-christian would catch that, so praise God that his word was still preached.

    Desiderio,

    who is this line speaking of? John the Baptist?

    They came from the cities and towns all around
    To see the longhaired preacher from the desert get down
    Waist high in water, never short on words, he said
    Repent, the kingdom of heaven can be yours

    What is wrong with you? Did you read my post at all?

    Will I use lies to get people into church? NO, I wont. I dont think he lied, and you havent shown that he did. ITS A SONG!! GROW A BRAIN!!!

    My word...your hatred is amazing, only trumped by your incredible ignorance.

    This IFB "us against the world" is a slap in God's face. Other denominations can spread his word too, and can word it differently. Its figurative.....does your mind have the capacity to see that, or do you only know finger-pointing?

    If the Bible plainly shows different, it is a lie

    Thats what I would think. Is there a problem here too?

    You just LOVE attacking God's work, dont you?

    So basically, you will not answer what I said, you will avoid it like a good legalistic fundy.

    Thanks for sharing. No go away and attack some other good work. You and Satan cant stop this one.

    Toby Mac will be 42 years old in October. Something about a 42 year old man rapping just strikes me as strange. And I grew up on hip hop music. :D

    sure is, look at the following lines and tell me where that is found in the word of God?

    He fell to his knees? Not in my Bible. Is it in yours?

    John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him, and said, "Behold, (a)the Lamb of God who (b)takes away the sin of the world!


    The point I am trying to make is one cannot twist the word of God and put it into a song and say it is gospel.

    Well, you split hairs, argue about things that cant possibly matter even to most fundamentalitst, and claim what you want.

    I dont need to expose your ignorance. Diggin did that for me

    desiderio,

    would you not agree that a little bit of poison in a glass of water poisons the whole glass?

    Why would twisting God's word to say something they do not and putting them in a song not poison the whole song?

    A little bit of poison in the body can also cure a cancer.

    are you learning impaired?

    It isnt poison. Its not even close to poison. Its a song. Its called art. There is no part of that song that is "against" scripture. There are hymns that you sing which do the same types of things!

    Your stance is a complete joke.
