Stuff Christians Like’s Jon Acuff: ‘When Lil’ Wayne Defines The Gospel’

 

 

Jonathan Acuff

 

 

Hip hop star Lil Wayne recently shared in a new Rolling Stone interview that while he was in jail, he actually read the Bible from cover to cover, for the first time.

 

When asked what he thought, Wayne responded:

 

“It was deep! I liked the parts where some character was once this, but he ended up becoming that. Like he’d be dissing Jesus, and then he ends up being a saint. That was cool.”

 

“What a great description of the gospel,” Jon Acuff wrote after reading Wayne’s words. “Some character was once this, but ended up becoming that. I was lost, but now I am found. I was once blind, but now I see.”

 

But the best part Acuff exclaimed was:

 

“Whenever I read stuff like that, whenever I hear celebrities describing brushes they’ve had with the Bible or God or the gospel, I always have the same reaction: ‘Hey, I know that guy too!’

Like connecting the dots between mutual friends with a stranger, I feel like shouting, That’s my God you’re talking about. I know that guy! You would love that guy if you got to know him. He’s awesome!”

 

We know how you feel Jon.

Huge congratulations to Jon Acuff uber-blogger of STUFF CHRISTIANS LIKE Blog (a Christian satirical humor blog poking fun at the weird things Christians do) who challenged his readers to band together and do something really cool – they all pitched in and donated enough money to can build a kindergarten in Vietnam (through Samaritan’s Purse).  They raised $30,000 in 18 hours. That’s crazy.

Here’s the school they funded completely.

They did that in 18 hours. I still can’t believe it. That’s mind-blowing. 18 hours.
