MUSIC: Lyrical Theology – Shai Linne

Lyrical Theology – Shai Linne
Posted on May 2, 2013  in Blog, Music, Theology
A number of weeks ago you heard a song by shai linne and Melissa T during our offering (it was the missions Sunday when YFC was the focus).  He just released a new album covering some of the following: Jesus as fully man and fully God (also known as the Hypostatic Union), Regeneration, Election, Cosmic Powers, Fal$e Teacher$ etc.
The content is extremely edifying (if you can handle the Rap/Hip-Hop flavour). You can find it in the itunes store if you’re interested!
 
The following excerpt from With All My Mind especially stands out:
 
And forever we will cling to the crucified
A Risen King who fulfilled the plan you devised
Theology helps us separate truth from lies
But you are not an object to be scrutinized
You are not a philosophy
You are not a theory
You’re not an apologetic debate topic merely
You’re a person who deserves to be adored
Our goal in life should simply be to see you more
To have our souls satisfied, and be so amazed
To stand in awe when you teach us to know your ways
To bring glory to your holy name forevermore
We were made for so much more than what we settle for
We’re too easily satisfied with lesser things
They’re distractions that keep us from our blessed King
Theology is not a goal but its major purpose
Is to think about you rightly when we praise and worship
