The Lil Nas X Controversy: If That’s Your Heaven I Will Pick Hell

Satan has infected Christianity.


In this episode, Pastor Adam Ericksen discusses the controversy around Lil Nas X’s latest release where he boldly declares “If that’s your heaven I will pick hell”. Adam believes the artist is holding up a mirror to Christians and Christianity by showing how Satan has infected Christianity. This statement from Lil Nas X points to the bullying and abuse he experienced in his Christian community growing up as a gay black man.
