So if they wanna reach us with Jesus
They gotta do better than some screaming preachers

from Lecrae – Rise Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lecrae is saying people have been preached to all their life. They want to be talked to with respect. People are more willing to discuss things with Christians than tolerate high pitched screaming and King James religious lingo. People want Christians to have real and down to earth conversations, addressing their questions and objections to Christianity without getting mad.

In 1 Cor. 9:22 Paul said “…I have become all things to all men, that I might save some.” This means meet people where they are, on their level, and in their context.
