Lecrae made history with his brand-new single "All I Need Is You" this week, becoming the first Christian hip-hop artist of all time to ever reach the number-one spot on iTunes.
The rapper spoke with The Christian Post about the achievement this week and stated that he does not view it as something to brag about.
"I don't look at it that way," the rapper said to CP on Wednesday. "I think it's phenomenal to make music that challenges people to think on morality, spirituality and the betterment of society. Many people do that. Some sing country or jazz - I rap. At the end of the day I'm not here to hold up the banner of a genre. I am here to hold up the banner of Truth. It's way bigger than genres and charts. I'm fighting to be a voice in culture. A voice in a dark world." more >>
The Christian music world has been abuzz in recent days about the unorthodox theology of celebrated Dove-award winning musical artists Michael and Lisa Gungor, known for popular worship songs like "Dry Bones" and "Beautiful Things."
Citing an interview in the Oakland Press, World Magazine noted that Michael Gungor, 33, revealed that he lost his "metaphysic" in 2012. The pastor's son from Wisconsin, according to World Magazine, also reflects his departure from traditional Christianity on his band's 2013 album, I Am Mountain.
The Gungors, however, have never really concealed their evolving theological position. In a blog post titled "What Do We Believe" in February, the couple asserted that they simply no longer literally believed in stories from the Bible on such topics as creation and the flood. more >>
