In a breath of fresh air, Voddie Baucham touches on the bizarre fascination with celebrity Christianity. While we should appreciate and praise God any time someone comes to Christ for salvation, the interesting phenomenon is that Christians tend to think that when celebrities become Christians, God is somehow more able to use them and their platform than He could without them. Voddie Baucham demolishes this mindset.
While Baucham didn’t mention West by name, it’s profoundly obvious that he and others like him are on his mind. It is actually much more refreshing that God has placed men like Baucham to speak truth into the culture and the Church than men like West who, since his claim to Christianity, has done nothing but compromise.
