Q&A: Customary Pleads for ‘Compassion’
Alex “Customary” Post thinks non-Christians should feel welcome in church.
Those around him, though, often feel more judged than loved.
Here’s an excerpt of Rapzilla’s interview Customary about the album he released on August 5th.
Video Premiere: Manafest - Edge of My Life
When I wrote the song “Edge of My Life” I was picturing families or that person who is struggling just to survive or make ends meat as the saying goes. I’ve experienced those moments in my life where I felt like I was on the edge of quitting or just in a hard place. 1 Timothy 6:12 tells us to...

The truth is, we live not in a Theocracy. Long gone are the days where Rulers, Kings, Monarchs, and Presidents look to a higher being in the decision making process. Human reasoning and understanding has become the final authority in all matters.
There is a tension that many believers find themselves in; the desire to stand up for what they believe in while understanding the world in which they live.
As a business, hip hop has always relied on the power of sex for profit. For years, artists like Patra, Foxy Brown, Lil Kim, and Nikki Minaj, to name a few, have capitalized on their sex appeal to great effect. Meaning they've made heaps of dollars by coupling art and sexuality.

Captured is an album that was derived from a personal burden on FLAME’s heart. When reflecting upon the state of the world and the church, FLAME noticed that people fell into two categories:
1. being captured by sin and still under its grip and control; or 2. having been captured by God and under His rule and sway.
Yet, he saw something similar in both groups: the need to be recaptured. The non-Christian needs to be captured by God for the first time, while the Christian needs to constantly be captured by God’s beauty, His holiness, and His grace. As the psalmist says in Psalm 42, “As a deer pants for flowing streams so pants my soul for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God for the living God…” This is the language of one who is captured and is being captured by a holy God and a sweet Savior.
FLAME takes you on a journey from what its like to be captured from birth to childhood to adulthood and then throughout your Christian journey. FLAME shares many personal stories of how God captured him and is continuing to capture him. He also gives a glimpse of how he and all the saints will eventually be captured once and for all in the presence of God. This album is a plea and a call for God’s created people and His children to follow hard after God and to cling to Him. Who or what has captured you?
