Kanye West Confirms He Recently Converted to Christianity
Kanye confirmed that he recently converted to Christianity, TMZ reports.
“I want to let you know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon,” West told the crowd. “We are here to spread the gospel.”
“Excuse me if I mispronounce anything,” he added. “I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.”
Given his ongoing Sunday Service events and his vow to move away from making secular music in favor of creating only gospel music, West fully committing to his faith by becoming a Christian convert falls in line with his recent exploits.
Kanye’s pastor, Adam Tyson, hinted at this new direction by revealing how West reacts to people cursing in his presence.
“If somebody cusses in his presence, I’ve heard him say a couple of times, ‘Hey, man, you can’t cuss when you’re with me. I’m a born-again Christian,'” Tyson said on the Pure Flix Podcast.
“Who’s gonna say that if they’re not meaning that they want Christ to be exalted in all that they do? [He told me], ‘From now on, all I want to do is serve Christ. I want every song that I sang, to have part of my testimony, to include the gospel, and to include the element of worship to our great God. That’s what I want to do.'”
Jesus Is King is now slated to drop the same day as his IMAX film Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience, which will be in select theaters until October 31.
Recall popular American rapper, Nicki Minaj disclosed in her show, Queen Radio while speaking to Chance The Rapper that Kanye West told her he’s now a born again Christian.
In her conversation with her fellow rapper, Chance The Rapper she said;
“I want to touch on, just briefly real quick, and I’m going to go…Because I felt the same exact way. Sometimes in the music business, we think that other artists don’t believe in God or aren’t spiritual as we are, and stuff like that. So we automatically go to the normal, ‘Oh, what up?’
“Then when you find people because I just was with Kanye, and he told me he’s a born-again Christian now. Like my first instinct was, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ because I could see there’s a peace that he has now that just surpasses everything.”
Touching quickly on her husband, Kenneth Petty’s faith, she added:
“To everybody listening, if you have a man that says he doesn’t believe in God … one time somebody told me this, that, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ and it scared the living hell out of me,” she said. “I ran like there was no tomorrow. So I just want to say, because a man needs a strong woman in his life, like whether that woman is praying or meditating or just supporting you or giving you those talks, people don’t understand how far that goes for men.”
