Grammy-nominated hip-hop artist Da’ Truth took to Twitter with a cryptic message revealing some lyrics to his new song “Religion,” which features Christian apologist Dr. Ravi Zacharias, triggering a worldwide discussion.

Da’ Truth shared about the idea of truth, God and religion. He tweeted some of the lyrics to his new song from the upcoming album, It’s Complicated, and thousands, even listeners from NGEN radio and Jam The Hype, shared concerns and questions on whether or not the artist was second-guessing his faith.

It was later revealed with the release of his new video for “Religion” that Da’ Truth wasn’t confused about his Christian beliefs but instead was only sharing lyrics from his single that features counter-arguments of his skepticism by internationally respected Christian apologist and author Dr. Ravi Zacharias.

The real-life discussion between the multi-talented artist and Zacharias explored the complexities of religion, which is also the theme of the new album.

“Yes, I wanted to reveal my single, but more than that, I wanted to share REAL thoughts and concerns that I have struggled with throughout my life,” explains Da’ Truth in a statement released to The Christian Post. “Is there one true religion? Is it arrogant to be exclusive? Can we be certain that Christianity is the only religion that God acknowledges as true? Many people, Christians included, struggle with these questions, and I want them to know they aren’t alone. Through this song and my entire album, I want to provide a soundtrack that articulates some of the internal twists and turns that people experience concerning exclusivity in religion and ultimately start a discussion among each other and together we can resolve the one that has to be true.”
