KRS-ONE, like many others, teaches an escape from one's issues and problems. He teaches a philosophy that causes one to remove himself from his own bad decisions, bad judgements, and personal failures. It's a displacement theory that simply causes people to ignore their issues and focus on feeling better instead of trying to work them out. Instead of repentance, forgiveness, true love, and self denial that the word of God teaches, new agers like KRS-ONE ignore their own sins, bad decisions, and issues to embrace self worship, self pleasure, and immorality.
The self as god doctrine basically gives man the authority to do what they want and ignore the issues that they are putting others through. People that subscribe to this are sovereign and feel they do not have to submit to any spiritual authorities, or be governed by the leadership of God through mankind. These are the same people that Jesus rebuked because they would not follow Him when He was on earth! They felt that their connection to God was through their bloodline (Abraham) and so they didn't need an earthly leader. John 8:33 They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
This is why Jesus established the church before He went back and Paul was selected to appoint church leaders. But men like KRS-ONE teach that the black man is the god of himself and he should think independently, make up his own rules to govern himself, and make himself equal to Christ! This is chronic narcissism and it is infectious! It's spreading throughout this generation like wild fire. 1Tim. 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
The bible holds us to moral standard and causes us to consider others before ourselves. This means that we cannot sin without consequence. God's word teaches that we should abstain from sin. The bible teaches that a man that doesn't take care of his family is worse than a sinner.1Tim. 5:8 The bible teaches that a man should love his wife as himself. Eph. 5:28 The bible teaches that we should esteem others higher than ourselves. Phil. 2:3 The bible is about self denial, which is the opposite of knowledge of self or self as god philosophy. Matt. 16:24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. This is why people like KRS-ONE discredit the bible or say that it's not valid. It's because they cannot and will not live up to the standard that God expects. So they create their own gods, their own rules, and their own morality. This is dangerous people because hell is real and those that deny the bible and Jesus Christ will go there! Do not believe what this man is saying. His doctrine is of devils and it will lead you straight to hell. Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
The bible says you will know the false prophets by their fruit. Matt. 7:20 Their marriages, their children, and their own conduct will show you exactly where you will end up if you follow them. If they only have words to show for what they believe and no real fruit, then go the other way. God's way will always produce fruit and the fruit will remain! Believe in Jesus people, because soon it will be too late!
Watch KRS-ONE teach his new aged philosophy here.
Matt. 7:15-17 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
