Gospel Rapper Renounces His Faith In Jesus As Great Falling Away Continues

Christian rapper Jahaziel denounced Christianity
three days before the celebration of Christ’s
birth.

“A short while ago I turned away from 20 years
as a professing Christian. I had a good job with a
church organization, a house provided by the
church, a large social circle of likeminded people,
a career in gospel music, a worldwide fan base, a
respected reputation & status within Christian and non Christian circles,” Jahaziel wrote
on Facebook.

In 2013, the U.K.-based rapper
told CrossRhythms he was shying away from fame for the sake of the gospel.

Now, the tables have turned. The
man Rapzilla called one of the most important U.K. artists in the history of Christian hip-hop has
not only renounced his faith, he’s questioning
the foundation Christianity is built on.

In the Facebook post, Jahaziel told followers he
cannot believe the Bible is the infallible Word of
God.

He later posted a follow-up for those who were
questioning his decision.

“You can believe the bible and its God all you
want but to me he just demands my fear because
he cannot earn my respect. I cannot possibly
agree that he is love unless I ignore all the men,
women and little children he has slaughtered
throughout the entire bible,” the post reads.

“But maybe some peoples Christian lenses won’t
allow them to see that – cool. Mine didn’t either
for s (sic) long time. I have tasted and seen – and
my conclusion is that Christianity (it’s flawed
book, bloodthirsty god and mythical savior) i
have found unsatisfactory and unworthy of my allegiance or worship unless by threatening to
kill me if I don’t – as Christianity does.”

The statement seems ironic from the same man
who penned the following lyrics:

Help me God

(So help me God) So if you hear I got my eyes to
the hills
Tho’ when’s cometh my help
If I seem strong you know they strict fane of
myself You don’t know how I fell them fell flat on my
face
Crawled back on my knees he put me back by
his grace

Now I’m back on the case
Closin’ the mouths on my critics They haters, doubters and (cynics) told me I’m
out of my lyrics
But God’s far from finished with me In fact he just started
