And open bibles, instead of hoping on revivals
Calling on His name and screaming hallelujah
When he hardly knew ya, that's how the devil's fooled ya

from Killah Priest – B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) Lyrics on Rap Genius


Killah Priest takes initiative in his studies of religion to garner a better understanding.

It is a common problem that many who follow religion have very little understanding of what they worship so heavily

The finale line draws a heavy contradiction;
The fact that those follow so blindly without understanding or questioning is actually the work of the Devil that the religion works to denounce

Interestingly enough, Jesus is often referred to as a shepherd (a man who leads and tends to his flock of sheep) while those who follow are the sheep who are often depicted to follow blindly without understanding to any lengths
