Kanye West and the Bible

Kanye West, the foul-mouthed rap­per who claims Jesus walks with him in “Jesus Walks”,* has been quot­ed as say­ing the Bible should be revised to include him in the nar­ra­tives. West says that in the his­to­ry record­ed in the Bible he would be a gri­ot, a West African storyteller.

His rea­son­ing for believ­ing he belongs in God’s word includes his being a moti­va­tion­al speak­er, his abil­i­ty to make his­to­ry inter­est­ing to young peo­ple, and the fact that he has “changed the sound of music more than one time.”

In oth­er news sto­ries I came across while look­ing for par­al­lels to this one, Kanye has con­fessed to being a very foul-mouthed porn-addict who shows lit­tle to no signs of the regen­er­a­tion of the Holy Spir­it. And in his claim to bib­lic­i­ty, he runs the risk that “God will add upon him the plagues hav­ing been writ­ten in this Book” (Rev­e­la­tion 22:18, LITV).

Tru­ly, that is not a blessed state to be in. Please pray for Kanye West, that if he tru­ly desires the Lord to walk beside him, that he would live a life which reflects Christ. God is holy, and thus can­not asso­ciate Him­self with sin.

Will two walk togeth­er except they are agreed? Amos 3:3 LITV
