    Kanye West

    A few months ago, there were reports that Kanye West had decided to become a Christian. A lot of people were skeptical. I'll admit I was skeptical, too.

    But seeing this article this morning (warning: this is a secular music magazine; there is no profanity in the article, but I can't speak as to any ads or links that might be elsewhere on the site) changed my mind. Naturally, the media is focusing on the fact that he went around asking people working on his new album "Jesus is King" not to engage in premarital sex during the process. But this excerpt caught my attention instead:

    "Now that I知 in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I致e spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting you know what the Hennessey had done for me, but now I知 letting you know what Jesus has done for me, and in that I知 no longer a slave, I知 a son now, a son of God. I知 free.
    These sound like the words of someone who really has decided to follow Jesus. Pray that he stays on the right track. There are temptations for anyone who decides to follow Jesus; his are more high profile than those of most.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

    His wife was just baptized Armenian Orthodox.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I just get a little nervous when somebody so seemingly emotionally unstable steps up to be a spokesmen for the Risen Lord. But, God can fix that, too.

    I think it would also take a good therapist acting as God's instrument..... I'm not being blasphemous, I just think someone like that needs therapy.

    Kanye's flirted with religious themes for a while, including releasing an album named "Yeezus" in 2013. Titles on that album include "Black Skinhead", "I Am A God", "Hold My Liquor". If you're not offended by explicit lyrics, google the lyrics to "I Am A God".

    Anyways, I'm not holding my breath. The dude's crazy.
    "We see unmistakably the sort of universe in which we have all along been living, and must come to terms with it. If we had foolish un-Christian hopes about human culture, they are now shattered. If we thought we were building up a heaven on earth, if we looked for something that would turn the present world from a place of pilgrimage into a permanent city satisfying the soul of man, we are disillusioned, and not a moment too soon." - C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
