Christians Quick to Judge Eminem’s Bold Proclamation of Faith in New Song by Shelby Lindsay for Charisma News
In a remarkable display of how the gospel is going forth into Hollywood, famous rapper Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers, is proclaiming the gospel and God’s deliverance in the new hit song “Use This Gospel.”
The song produced by DJ Khaled with Kanye West and Eminem has hit No. 1 on Christian charts. Over the years Eminem has been open about his struggles with mental health and fighting against the enemies temptations.
In the song he raps, “So my savior, I call on to rescue me from these depths of despair. So these demons better step like a stair, because He is my Shepherd. I’m armed with Jesus, my weapon is prayer.”
Christians across social media have been quick to judge Eminem and his profession of faith highlighting his past sins. The fact of the matter is the song, which clearly encourages people to turn to God in their darkest battles and talks on the importance of prayer, will reach far more people than the average Christian will be able to.
The Bible is clear that when we repent God remembers our sins no more. It is time Christians have that same approach with one another and choose love over judgement.
Romans 14:10 says, “So why do you judge your brother? Or why do you despise your brother? For we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.”
Is an awakening happening in Hollywood? Eminem isn’t the first celebrity to recently start talking more openly about their faith in God. Shia LaBeouf had a radical encounter with God on the set of his new movie “Padre Pio” which he talks about in depth in an interview with Bishop Barron.
