This is not a new release but it’s worth tracking.
They told me hate the sin and you better love the sinner
Because God loved you even before the beginning
The Bible said He loved us way before we even knew
But people hate each other because its sin we’re going through
Marty here starts off with teachings he has heard about love and God’s commandment
towards love but he gets worried at the level at which people get to hate each other. They feel
or think that some person is a worse sinner, simply because the person is either struggling
with or committing some sins that they do not commit and they do not show these people
love. If God loved us before we even knew what love meant, we should also extend the same
love to everyone around us- whether sinners or not.
And people call themselves Christians
But God hates fags written all over the pickets
We play the Holy Spirit and judge people because of the way they sin different
Social Club will always be the difference I have gay friends and I’m not afraid to say it
And I love ’em like Christ did and people are gonna hate it
They know what I believe in and they might not agree
But I stand as living proof look at what God did for me
He is shocked here at how people call themselves Christians and engage in funny acts. For
example “God hates fags written all over the pickets”. The parties in question should have
said “God hates the act and not the people”. It is not the will of God that man should perish,
that was why he sent his son (Jesus Christ) to come atone for our sins.
Marty also raps about men acting as judges over fellow men- when in reality, men should
condemn the sin, pray and show love to the sinner.
I saw pornography before I was just a teen
Although I slipped up it’s by his grace I am free
And thank God for leaders that never gave up on me
Without the grace of God who knows where I would be
A screwed up teen in a youth group full of kids
Nobody spoke to me the first time I ever went
So instead I smoked weed with a couple of my friends
I know I’m not like them but I know I can pretend
Marty here talks about how the grace of God kept and rescued him from his sinful state, he
mentioned just one example. He thanked God for leaders that never gave up on him. His
leaders might have been praying for him, paying him visits and showing other forms of love
towards him. He concludes this verse by saying that many people look at sinners like they
have no hope of being saved. People look at sinners and give up on them.
If Saul could be converted to Paul, if the thief on the cross could be saved, then we should not
give up on sinners. We should interact with sinners and not push them away, we should
welcome them as they are, but at the same time we should not compromise.
So I had a daughter then it all got real
They say players get girls
I could no longer be caught up .
How could somebody so broken down be given a gift that only God allows?
When I broke his heart over and over, wow
I’ve seen it all, lifted all every category
I’m walking miracle look what the Lord did for me
I’ve seen homosexuality delivered actually
To my uncle, rest in peace, He with the Lord though
He recognized in the end we make a choice yo
A moment of grace was given to him right?
Then he looked up to the sky and surrendered his life
Cause all of the drugs that I was on
I made it out of it, I’m married and I love strong
I’m just another testimony of the Fathers love, Fernie
Molestation issues in my family
To the ladies that I did wrong
Fern in this verse talks about his former life. He raps about God still giving him a daughter
even though he had wronged many ladies. He mentions that God showed him love in so
many ways that he can be referred to as a walking miracle. He also appreciates the love that
God showed to his uncle on his dying bed as a sinner, his uncle accepted Christ on his dying
bed. In conclusion, he emphasizes on how God never gave up on him. Hence, we should
never give up on sinners.
