Shai Linne Lyrics


With the rise of the prosperity gospel heresy that has infected our country and is being exported to other countries, I think it is appropriate to share the lyrics to a song that the rapper Shai Linne penned. One thing about Shai Linne that is important to know, he is not only a rapper. This guy is a student and a theologian. He has sat under some of the best biblical teaching that is out there and he is a brilliant scholar. This is why his lyrics contain truths that you normally would not hear in a rap song. The song is entitled “Fal$e Teacher$” and is an incredible defense of the gospel in the midst of the heresies that are being put out there. Read these lyrics and consider the individuals that he names. Are you being influence by one of these individuals? If so, please evaluate what they are putting forth because I can assure you that it is not true biblical doctrine. I also encourage you to listen to the album that this song came off of. It is called Lyrical Theology.

Let me begin while there’s still ink left in my pen
I’m set to contend for truth you can bet will offend
Deception within the church, man who’s letting them in?
We talked about this years ago- let’s address it again
And I ain’t really trying to start beef
But some who claim to be part of the sheep got some sharp teeth
And cats get mean when you criticize them
But Jesus told us- Matthew 7:16, we can recognize them
And God forbid that for the love of some fans
I keep quiet and watch ‘em die with their blood on my hands
So there nothing left for me to do except to speak to you
In the spirit of Jude 3 and 2 Peter 2
And I know that some will label me a Pharisee
Because today the only heresy is saying that there’s heresy
I’ll dare to be specific and drop some clarity
On the popularity of the “gospel” of prosperity
Turn off TBN- that’s channel’s overrated
The pastors speak bogus statements, financially motivated
It’s kind of like a pyramid scheme
Visualize heretics christianizing the American dream
It’s foul and deceitful, they’re lying to people
Teaching that camels squeeze through the eye of needle
Ungodly and wicked- ask yourself
“How can they not be convicted?” Treating Jesus like a lottery ticket
And you’re thinking they’re not the dangerous type
because some of their statements are right?
That only proves that Satan comes as an angel of light
This teaching can’t be believed without a cost
The lie is you can achieve a crown without a cross
And I hear it all the time when they speak on the block
Even unbelievers are shocked how they’re fleecing the flock
It should be obvious then, yet I’ll explain why it’s sin
Peep the Bible- it’s in 1Timothy 6:9-10
It talks about how the desire for riches
Has left many souls on fire, in stitches, mired in ditches
Tell me, who would teach you to pursue as a goal
The very thing that the Bible says will ruin your soul?
Yet they’re encouraging the love of money
To make it worse, they’ve exported this garbage into other countries
My heart breaks even now as I’m rhyming
You wanna know what all false teachers have in common?
It’s called “self-ism”, the fastest growing religion
They just dress it up and call it Christian
Don’t be deceived by this funny biz
If you come to Jesus for money, then He’s not your God- money is
Jesus is not a means to an end
The gospel is He came to redeem us from sin
And that is the message forever I’ll yell
If you’re living your best life now, you’re headed for hell

Joel Osteen is a false teacher
Creflo Dollar is a false teacher
Benny Hinn is a false teacher
I know they’re popular but don’t let them deceive ya

TD Jakes is a false teacher
Joyce Meyer is a false teacher
Paula White is a false teacher
Use your discernment, let the Bible lead ya

Fred Price is a false teacher
Kenneth Copeland is a false
Robert Tilton is a false teacher
I know they’re popular but don’t let them deceive ya

Eddie Long is a false teacher
Juanita Bynum is a false teacher
Paul Crouch is a false teacher
Use your discernment, let the Bible lead ya

2 Peter 2:1-3

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.”
