Kanye West, who became a famous professing Christian after dropping his gospel album in 2019 has since been on a traveling preaching spree with various hucksters ranging from prosperity gospel charlatan, Joel Osteen to charismatic blasphemers like Cindy Jacobs and Lou Engle.
In 2019, concerning Kanye West’s continued affection for his own celebrity, I wrote:
There has been much hoopla in the last several weeks surrounding Kanye West and his supposed conversion to Christianity. Some of my closest friends and brothers in Christ are assuring us that he’s in good hands and calling on us to give him a chance to bear fruits. I’m all for that. I genuinely hope he is truly converted and I genuinely hope that the brothers who are watching over his soul right now don’t give up on him.
But there is a glaring problem right now that needs to be dealt with. I really don’t want to see Kanye slip away and be devoured by false teachers and a false gospel. I really don’t. But the problem is, Kanye West is still in the spotlight when he doesn’t need to be.
And in another article, I wrote:
The thing that nags at me, is seeing a person at this level of celebrity still immersed in their celebrity as a new convert. The New Testament frowns upon novices taking center stage at all, to say nothing of it being because of their life of sin.
I couldn’t name one of Kanye’s songs and couldn’t care less. To me, he’s just another man who needs Jesus. This country is pickled in the idolatry of celebrity and celebrity status is an intoxicant that rivals any drug.
Since I wrote this, West has gone through a divorce yet he’s still lifted up as a celebrity “Christian” hero by many. In addition to that, it appears that, sadly, my discernment at the time concerning the hoopla surrounding West’s supposed conversion turned out to be on point. I did not buy it.
Recently, we reported that Kanye West, a professing Christian, announced he would be taking a short break from porn and fornication.
Of course, at the time, my discernment about West had already been vindicated. But now, West takes his apostasy to a whole new level. West has taken heat from primarily left-wing news in recent days over alleged antisemitism. But his comments today on the Alex Jones show demonstrate a complete lack of awareness and certainly not a Christian perspective as he praises Hitler.
During a podcast, Jones told West whose face was covered in a bizarre black hood, “You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, so you don’t deserve to be demonized,” to which West responded:
“Well, I see good things about Hitler also.”
“The Jews…I love everyone, and the Jewish people are not going to tell me ‘You can love us and you can love what we are doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we are pushing with the pornography’, but this guy that invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good and I am done with that,” he continued.
“I am done with the classifications. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.” Of course, this is no different than claiming that Planned Parenthood is good because they perform a few pap smears every now and again while killing millions of babies daily.
