The inspiration for Pt.2 came about as Cephas was serving as an evangelist for a local Church.  He was in a board meeting discussion about how to reach the community with the Gospel and the lead pastor decided that evangelism was worthless because “it didn’t equal butt’s in seats on Sunday mornings” and cut funding to their outreaches.  That was enough for Cephas to pull his support for the Church… and write the verse for KNGDM State of Mind Pt.2 declaring:

I thought the spreading of the gospel
was the mission
Did everything for this church
And they go dismiss it
Than I caught a glimpse of
My saviors face
Blood dripping
From what had taken place
Religious leaders saying what a disgrace
But the same ones who drove the nails in place
Were the same ones He came to save by His amazing grace

In his efforts to pull away from Churches that were more concerned about building their platforms than sharing the Gospel, Cephas received much undue criticism… even from people who claimed to be his friends.  It was obvious that some had grown jealous of the fact that he wasn’t reliant on titles or positions of influence.  To Cephas, being part of a leadership team was about reaching people… not merely a move towards career advancement… fueling the lyrics:

But God is who I’m loyal to
Been around too many disloyal dudes
Posing like the chosen few
but were jealous of the levels I was going to
Afraid of the man of God
I would grow into
As I would show and prove

Hence, a KNGDM State of Mind is one focused on reaching the lost… not building a platform.  It’s also one that is rooted in forgiving those who would rather build a platform than God’s kingdom.  At the end of the day that’s the only way to swing them towards the light.
