What if someone told you, that many of the principles which made popular performers like Beyoncé Knowles, R. Kelly and the Wu-Tang Clan successful, could aid in your spiritual development and maturation?
It would not be surprising if you said, “Yeah right! There is absolutely nothing these artists can teach me that will help me become a better Christian. Especially not Beyoncé! Let’s not talk about Mr. “Bump & Grind”, “Feelin’ on Your Booty”, R. Kelly. And who on earth is the Wu-Tang Clan? Are they some sort of martial arts experts?”
Such skepticism is only natural and understandable. However, while looking at MTV, Jared Renaud Taylor noticed something very interesting. He realized that several Pop culture icons have achieved their success and notoriety by utilizing principles with scriptural foundations. Indeed, it seems that “the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.” (Luke 16:8). The author also recognized, that their use of these principles, serve as analogies which can help to strengthen our relationships with Christ.
