What is BSAC? What is it not?
It’s funny how when God lays something on your heart to do He does not give you all of the pieces all at one time. I have found in my life God is about building things that will have an affect long term. There are some short projects that we may take on in our lives but it seems that for the most part God is an advocate of legacies, endurance, generations and things like that.
So what is B.S.A.C.? B.S.A.C. is a mission it’s a mission from God to do God’s work. B.S.A.C. stands for Biblically Sound Artist Coalition. B.S.A.C. was birth out of prayer as God laid it on my heart that in our music, in our movies, in our churches in general we have turned away from Biblical standards of worship and ministry in pursuit of a pragmatic method to bring about success. B.S.A.C. is a statement that hinges on 2 Peter 1:3
“seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.”
It’s a statement that implies in the music we put out, in the movies we make, we don’t need anything from the world except their ears to hear and their eyes to see. It’s our belief that Christians and non-Christians cannot partner together for MINISTRY purposes because we don’t see the partnering with the wicked on any level as an approved practice for ministry in scripture. B.S.A.C. is a response to what’s happening as the body of Christ is consistently losing it’s identity in hope of making friendships with the world. Now as it stands in the Christian Rap genre there a few voices by way of media outlets but they’re all saying the same things. We are finding that there are many people who think differently about topics related to how we are to do ministry from a biblical standpoint but there is not a real platform for those concerns or voices to be shared B.S.A.C. will be that.
B.S.A.C. is pro unity but we believe that this unity will not be gained by just keeping all contrary thought quiet but by real biblical dialogue. We cannot shut out those who differ with us simply because we don’t want to be challenged on anything or feelings that we don’t have to answer to our brothers of sisters concerning what we do. I would submit that that’s prideful
Now what B.S.A.C. is not: B.S.A.C. is not us vs them. We believe that brothers and sisters who are using philosophies of partnering with the ungodly are in fact brothers and sisters and the Lord said it Himself that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. B.S.A.C. is not anti anyone but B.S.A.C. is anti ungodly philosiphies. We believe that the problem is not people but we see what’s happening in our Christian artistry as a spiritual issue that needs further conversation.
“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Eph 6:12
B.S.A.C. is also a watchmen group we see what’s going on and we warn the believer of the danger to come we are NOT looking to get rid of anyone and we are not haters.
In conclusion I know whenever something is done or put out there that is different from what the prevailing thought is it’s automatically seen as being a hater or trying to start divisions I will say this; Paul opposing Peter to his face could have caused division if Peter was not mature enough to receive the rebuke and grow and this is a two way street. We need to be accountable to each other and there should be no artist, producer, label or anyone that names the name of Christ that is above being challenged in certain areas of ministry or life. When we do become that big we really need to beware because the Bible clearly outlines that after pride comes the fall.
Lets build unity by having dialogue not only with the people who may already agree with us, but also with those who have concerns and questions about what we are doing. That will encourage true unity.
