Lecrae - Break It Down lyrics

Let me tell bout my home boy Cory this is the first verse of the very first story
Call it the first letter
You can call it whatever
Long as you hear the truth and leave surer than ever
Cory's a new believer actin like he's in gang
He run around sayin his Church is the greatest thang (1:10:-4:21)
He won't check a sermon unless its his Bishops name
It seems he forgot to keep Jesus the main thang (1:10-12)
Cause Bishop aint raise up after three days up
He aint take ya case up
Offering you his grace huh (1:13)
But Cory stay divided all the time
Not Christ but a man that he standin behind (3:4)

I got this little letter I'm tryna break down (break it down)
So you can hear the Truth in the Sound (In the Sound)
Division (1:10-4:21), A whole lotta Sin (5:1-6:20), I can't forget the problems of people living within (7:1-15:58)

I got this little letter Im tryna break down (break it down)
But let me tell you Cory background
He started off crazy parties
Full shawties religious ceremonies where people was gettin naughty (Study the History of Corinth at this time)
But all that changed
The truth of God reigned
The Gospel spread within Him
Like viruses in the veins (Even in such a sinful environment, people came to Christ in Corinth 1 Cor 1:4)
But mayne even tho his hearts rearranged
He found himself caught up in some of his old ways
He layin up with women his sinning was gettin strange (6:12-20)
He thought the more he sinned the more Jesus pleased to save
He thought cause he accepted His brother touchin his mother that he was spiritual cause he let em get with each other (5:1-13)
Cory had beef with another within the faith instead workin thru it they opened a court case (6:1-11)
A slap to the face of the God who gives grace/
Cory' 's outta place tryna carry his own weight

Now Cori got married but every where he turns he sees lust burn and women waitin to serve him
Yeah an coris learnin'
Satan wishes to turn him away from His wife to satisfy all his yearnings (7:1-40)
Divorce aint legitamate
If both are regenerate
What God put together let nobody put a split in it (7:10-16)
But see that aint the end of it
He sought his own benefit
He would do things that his friends saw as forbiden
And tho it wad no sin in it
His homies they was ignorant and they were made weak cause His liberty was their hinderance (8:1-11)
Unlike an apostle no concern for the Gospel
No denying his rights nah homie wasn't that thoughtful...thoughtful...(9:1-23)

Maybe I should take a second to explain main that Cori aint a person but a group of people (The Corinthians).
Many just like Christians today.
Caught up in their own worldly culture no respect for divine authority, the Lords Supper, and still exhalting Gifts which are all given by the Holy Spirit to begin with more than love for on another. (11:2-14:40)
Everything we have was given by God who commands us live outwardly toward others. I pray none of us wrestle with the Ressurection of Jesus(15:1-58) holla at me if you do. Above all things love GOD and LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
