Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed on Sunday afternoon when a man shot him multiple times outside his Los Angeles clothing store. It occurred a day before he was scheduled to meet with local law enforcement leaders to “talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids.”
Surely Christian leaders everywhere would have nothing but words of praise for the man, right?
Not E.W. Jackson, the radio host and failed politician, whose only concern was whether Hussle had found God.
E.W. Jackson apparently thought it was important to note that Nipsey Hussle is now in hell unless he accepted Christ in the final moments before he was murdered. pic.twitter.com/hFXbonUt6u

Well, apparently, this guy, Nipsey Hussle, had some good qualities. I don’t see any indication that he was a Christian. And if he’s not a Christian, that means he died and went to Hell, unless he somehow got saved in the final moments of his life. I say “if” because I don’t know him. Someone else may know something about him that I don’t know, saying, “No, he converted. He gave his life to Jesus Christ.” I’m not saying he’s in Hell. I’m just saying if — If he died without Christ, then that’s where he is.
Yes, maybe between the first and second bullet, Jesus had some time to swoop in and rescue Hussle’s soul…
Leave it to a Christian to judge a man’s worth solely by whether he accepted their preferred brand of nonsense while leaving the actual substance of his life, and everything he stood for, for another conversation.
The scary thing is that Jackson’s response isn’t unusual among Christians. For so many of them, the only thing that matters right now is whether or not he accepted God, not anything positive he did while still alive. It’s such a disturbing way to judge value in someone’s life.
