“Dangerously In Love” By Jackie Hill
I was first introduced to this young Christian poet while watching videos of Rhetoric (a Christian Spoken Word event held in California and hosted by Passion 4 Christ Ministries – http://www.p4cm.com). The first piece I heard from her was entitled, “My Life As A Stud” (Her personal testimony of living a lesbian lifestyle and being set free from it by Jesus). I immediately became a supporter, not only of her, but also of P4CM.
And then I came across another poem that she did called, “A Poem About Weed.” You have to watch to see how she skillfully personifies weed, portraying its deceitfulness and detrimental consequences to our lives and souls.
But wait, there’s more. In this stirring piece, “Jig-a-Boo,” Jackie laments the proliferation of bad doctrine and church practices and seeks to poetically shake the Church awake to them, calling for her to exercise discernment and to long for the faithful preaching of the Gospel and God’s Word.
All of this leads me to share with you her most recent work, “Dangerously in Love.” The title hints to its content. It’s about relationships, particularly women placing their ultimate significance, value, and hope in men rather than in God. Take a listen and share it with all the Christian women (and men) in your life.
