Chance The Rapper Is Taking A Break To Study Scripture

Chance The Rapper is taking some time off to study the word of God.

The popular Chicago-based rapper made the announcement on social media this week.

“I’m going away to learn the Word of God which I am admittedly very unfamiliar with. I’ve been brought up by my family to know Christ but I haven’t taken it upon myself to really just take a couple days and read my Bible,” he said on Instagram this week.“We all quote scripture and tell each other what God likes and doesn’t like but how much time do we spend as followers of Jesus to really just read and KNOW his Word. I’m definitely guilty of not devoting time to it.”

The rapper born Chancellor Bennett has been vocal about his Christian faith for some time. Still, he has not made music just for Christians and previously explained why.

“I never really set out to make anything that could pretend to be new gospel or pretend to be the gospel. It’s just music from me as a Christian man because I think before I was making music as a Christian child,” Chance previously said on the Beats 1 radio program. And in both cases I have imperfections, but there was a declaration that can be made through going all the [stuff] I’ve been through the last few years.”

Even though he doesn’t only talk about God in his music, the rapper says he finds freedom in doing so.

“I still think that God means everything to everyone whether they understand it or not or can really see it for themselves or they find God. I know for a fact we’re not pushed or promoted to speak about God with fervor,” he said. “I think the new generation and the forward is all about freedom and all about the ability to do what we want. We’re not free unless we can talk about God.”
