Born-again singer and rapper Chukie Edozien, popularly called Lynxxx, who has been reportedly seen smoking at social functions, says it is no sin to take alcoholic drinks.
While refusing to comment on reports of him smoking, he during in an interview, the singer said, “It is not a sin to drink (alcohol). What was Jesus’ first miracle in the Bible? He turned water to wine. I still hang out with my old friends in the entertainment industry.”
Speaking on why he was still not doing gospel despite being born again, he made the difference clear about his style of music, adding that his decision of faith does not make him a minister of God either.
“I am born-again, but I am not doing gospel music and I don’t do secular music again too. I cannot call myself a minister of God just because I performed at a gospel show. I don’t have a name for my kind of music. If I feel like praising God today, I will make a song about God, and it doesn’t necessarily mean I am a gospel artiste.” He said.
In a related development, he also added that the reason he has decided to hold back from releasing any song was that he wanted to take some time off music.
The rapper maintained that he had never regretted his decision to quit secular music. He added, “God is the most important thing to me. You can never experience Christ in His true form and regret it. I don’t think there is anyone who can tell me that they have encountered the Holy Spirit and regretted it. It is impossible!”
