Rap artist, Jovan Mackenzy, is a breath of fresh air who understands the clear biblical distinction between the church's responsibility to deal with wolves (or elephants) that are inside the camp, and God's promise to deal with those who are in the world. We can protest and boycott and rail against the policies and practices of the sinful world that surrounds us. I am not against that. But should we be surprised when pagans act like pagans - when those who are dead in sin show no signs of life in Christ? If we can get outraged over the policies of pagan politicians, how many times greater should our anger be against those who preach false gospels that lead people to hell?
For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13)
Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (Romans 16:17)
But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. (Galatians 1:8-9)
He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it. (Titus 1:9)
Thou shalt not criticize false teachers but shalt build friendships with them and partner with them. (Megaliah 3:17)
