Q&A: Customary Pleads for ‘Compassion’
Alex “Customary” Post thinks non-Christians should feel welcome in church.
Those around him, though, often feel more judged than loved.

Video Premiere: Manafest - Edge of My Life

In the end, Jesus is the only hero who can truly save the day!
Why is it that human beings have a tendency to want to classify things? Does it make it easier for us to digest something if we can put it in a box with similar products?

Mixtape's have been around since the late 70's, and many artists have found exposure and even gotten recording contracts from being featured on a mixtape. The mixtape in secular hip hop has been a proven outlet to promote your music in a cost effective way. Christian Hip Hop has been tapped into the mixtape game for several years now, however most are utilized to raise funds. With that said, I want to explore another function that Christian artists can use mixtape's for, namely, evangelism. Mixtape's can serve a similar purpose as like chick tracts. They have a message and can be handed out like tracts, anywhere to anyone.
