SAN DIEGO – Rapper and spoken word artist Propaganda says current church leaders demonstrate their authenticity in ways that preachers of previous generations never did, and are beginning to attract a wave of young unbelievers in the process.
"I think it has a lot to do with authenticity because what we're finding now is that there are dudes that don't say, 'yo, if you come to Jesus, all your problems will be solved and if you struggle it's because you don't have enough faith ... ' You have dudes now telling the truth and admitting that they are sinners," Propaganda told The Christian Post at The Heart Revolution Conference at Cornerstone Church in San Diego Thursday.
Fresh off the last leg of his tour for his album "Crimson Cord," Propaganda performed and shared his poetry at the conference. His main message was that the church should be known as a leader in today's culture but the challenge is to not compromise the Gospel's core message. more >>
