Recently we published an article detailing Rapper Snoop Dogg’s Gospel Album release and the mixed reviews it received, from praises to weary people who were sceptic about his claim to Christianity. For those not in the know, In 2009 Snoop Dogg announced that he had joined the Nation of Islam, then in 2012 changed his mind as he embraced Rastafarianism after a short stint as a reggae artist. Now he claims to be a born-again Christian. Snoop is disappointed with believers as being hypocrites for not celebrating his transition into gospel music.
Snoop Dogg released his first a gospel album Bible Of Love last month and many Christians have voiced their worry and scepticism, taking into consideration Snoop Dogg’s history. However, the award-winning rapper reacted and responded to his critics at the 33rd Stellar Gospel Music Awards.
Charisma News recently reported that Snoop Dogg is actually Born-Again Christian. Many have still emailed us and asked what our view is? Well, the answer remains the same as our last published article on the matter:
God can indeed use anything and anyone if He so pleases. If Snoop Dogg says he is a changed man, then our job is to continue to pray for him. Let us not be quick to dismiss him, but rather give him time and a chance to work out his salvation. If we are to be honest, we all have had our shortcomings, but God is able to take a heart that once was cold as stone and turn it around.
Beside’s the Bible says; Matthew 7:16-20 (KJV)
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
So, time reveals all and we continue to pray for Brother Snoop Dogg.
