He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Goons and Goblins?!

The words "Goon" and "Goblin" are famous in the hood. Instead of hearing kids chatter about what they learned in school or read out of a book,you hear famous lines from Little Wayne and Plies.

"Goon"- defined as a real man... originated in Florida
"told her i was a goon and she went for it" -Plies(Song:Shawty)

"Goblin"- defined as class of gangster above a goon. rich,, powerful, yet still from the hood. killing on others below them and has much more authority. usually the head of gangs and has much protection, but always loyal and always keep it real

"whats a goon to a goblin" -lil wayne (Song: A Millie)

Once again, I am thankful for Christian Hip Hop artist WHO take the time to produce music that help shape our kids world view. Men who understand the times and know what to do. (1 Chro. 12:22) Check out this video by Json Ft. Thisl and Ad3. The message is simple, yet, strong, God didn't create you to be a goon, a thug, or a lawbreaker; but instead he created you to bring glory to his name. I pray for these artist. That they too will one day understand the TRUTH about who they are and why the Lord created them. It burdens me to see such lives be wasted and more so to see the kids in our hoods want to be just like them.

I get goose bumps when the kids from my hood ride in the car with me and sing along with the chorus. They are learning, and understanding what it means to be created in the Lords likeness! Redemption at its finest people!! God is using this music to IMPACT lives for the Kingdom!!! Nothing about our culture surprises the Lord. I love how HE has a plan to REDEEM and end all foolishness.
Amen to that!
