CHRISTIANITY VS CULTURE
Over time I’ve been thinking
How could a haircut mean I’m sinning
Or a tattoo be so sinful?
And even long beard mean I’m criminal?
How does colored hair mean I’m hell bound?
Or pierced ears make man devil’s child?
I’m not here to say tattoos are cool
Or leave your hair till it reaches the moon
But I think we have some big issues at hand
And some scripture we’ve misconstrued
If we were to live like the Jews back in the day
Then Lady Pastors would never even pray
Nor boys’ hair even allowed a simple fade
Or a lady show her beautiful hair for the world to gaze
Against our culture somethings do offend
But don’t mix my God’s love for what your ancestors said
My Jesus loves art and died artistically in the end
The climax to sin’s drama, on the cross He avenged
I’m not here to say walk naked or expose yourself to the wind
Or be a caricature of weird things that offend
Fact is we’re in Ghana and somethings will never change
But to love man and please Maker must be the reason for everything
