Reformed Theology Is on the Chopping Block!

It’s Reformation Day! The day we celebrate Martin Luther’s nailing the 95 Theses to the church door at Wittenberg, Germany and launching, by God’s grace, the Protestant Reformation. Who knew the echo of that mallet, still going strong today, would redound worldwide lasting nearly five centuries later?

To show you how strong Reformation theology is, it’s reached a people group (African-Americans) that wasn’t even a people group during the Reformation itself. It’s reached a demographic within that people group (hip-hop) that itself spreads the Reformation flame farther and faster than a thousand preachers.

I’m grateful to God for the theology that comes out of the Protestant Reformation. I’m grateful because those rich doctrines (and it’s more than just the TULIP!) help us to know our God better and love our God as they summarize magnificent biblical truth. I’m grateful that the Reformation did not skip over people of African descent and that it has a life among young artists and thinkers.

To celebrate Reformation Day, we want to feature four gifted Christian hip-hop artists and faithful Christian brothers talking about the theology (at least TULIP) and humbly wrestling with their questions. So, join Shai Linne, Stephen the Levite, J’son and Tony from Hazakim as they put Reformed theology on the Chopping Block:

If you’re not familiar with the Chopping Block, then you’re more behind the times than I am! I found out a long time ago, like yesterday afternoon! If you want to view more, check out videos on:
