Christian Herald columnist criticises mainstream rapper Mase for bad teaching.

IN A RECENT Culture Vulture column in the Christian Herald newspaper George Luke spoke out against mainstream rapper Mase who, after denouncing rap music - even Christian rap - as "leading people into hell" in his autobiography Revelations, has now returned to rap music with the release of a new single, "Welcome Back". In his column George Luke commented, "Goodness knows how many impressionable young Christians with a gift for rapping were put off using it by Mase's erroneous teachings on the subject. And considering the criteria Paul gave Timothy for prospective church leaders, it's worth asking what sort of church appoints a two year old Christian as a pastor. Anyway, Mase is back making records and his chances of having a hit are quite high. Who knows, maybe he'll offer refunds to everyone who bought his book." CR
