Pastor Jim Colerick (pictured) has put together a video he thinks will inspire youth who are seeking the “Christian truth.” The “inspirational message” this man of the cloth is sharing is called “Rapping for Jesus,” reports the Daily Mail. Though, the end of the first verse may make you cringe. Here is the beginning of the song below.
“Well I wrote this song for the Christian youth
“I wanna teach kids the Christian truth.”
“If you wanna reach those kids on the street”
“Then you gotta do a rap, do a hip hop beat.”
“So heed my sermon, an urban kid”
My rhymes are fly, my beats are sick.”
My crew is big and it keeps getting bigger.”
“That’s cause Jesus Christ is my N*gga.
Yes, he said, “Jesus Christ is my N*gga.”
The controversial video, which was uploaded onto YouTube earlier this month by Brian Spinney, could have actually been produced some five years ago. Spinney created his YouTube account on Jan. 15, the same day that Pastor Colerick’s church, West Dubuque 2nd Church of Christ’s website went live online. The website claims the church closed about nine years ago and Spinney, who reveals he was a high school student at the time, says he produced the video with Colerick and his wife.
