Kanye West Is A Devil, Not A Christian
by David J. Stewart | October 2019
2nd Timothy 3:1-5, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”
Our text Bible passage warns believers about counterfeit Christians, those who “HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS,” but “DENYING THE POWER THEREOF,” are fakes in the churches! The Scriptures teach us that that “POWER” is The Gospel. Romans 1:16, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” Notice that to be saved there MUST be two things: the GOSPEL and FAITH.
In the book of Acts, we read about a demon-possessed woman who followed Paul and Silas, having “a spirit of divination,” who “brought her masters much gain by soothsaying.” Let me stop there for a moment. Notice that this demon-possessed woman was in bondage to some evil men (“her masters”). Some things never change in the world. Wicked people will take advantage of the weak if they can. This woman, who had a demonic spirit in her, followed Paul and Silas and told everyone that “THESE MEN ARE THE SERVANTS OF THE MOST HIGH GOD, WHICH SHEW UNTO US THE WAY OF SALVATION”...
Acts16:16-19, “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.”
From the preceding passage of Scripture we learn that even a demon-possessed person can speak the truth. The woman with a spirit of divination wasn't saved, yet she knew that Paul and Silas were preaching the truth of the Gospel (or at least gave the impression of it). Kanye could be demon-possessed!
Also, please notice in the following passage of Scripture that Simon the sorcerer was revered by the people, who said of him: “THIS MAN IS THE GREAT POWER OF GOD”! ...
Acts 8:9-11, “But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one: To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God. And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.”
That sure sounds like Kanye West to me! Watch this YouTube video of Kanye called: “Power” (these are the same type “sorceries” by which Simon bewitched the people).
In the following retarded YouTube video featuring Kanye West allegedly giving his salvation testimony, he utters all sorts of religious lingo, but never actually mentions what comprises The Gospel. Kanye never tells anyone how he got saved. I once heard something that I've seen to be very true—“As the churches become more worldly, so also is the world becoming more churchy!” You better believe they have! The churches today have become so worldly that all distinction that sets true Christians apart from the ungodly world has been lost. The name of the video is: Kanye West's Born Again Testimony. In this contemptible video, Kanye makes all of the following references, which trick the crowd into assuming he is a Christian, but he never mentions the Gospel (i.e., the power of God unto salvation to them that believe it). Literally, this is the sole extent of Kanye's so-called “Christian” testimony...
- “radically serving Christ”
- “our Father Christ Jesus”
- “thank you for saving me, for replenishing me, for delivering me”
- “when I got closer to you, I got closer to my children”
- “the Devil had me chasing a gold statue... had me chasing cars, had me chasing numbers”
- “the power of God cannot be calculated by a bank account, how many houses you have, or acres you've got”
- “if you see someone slipping, you tell 'em”
- “I'm just pointing to the Word”
- “get right with God”
- “you set that example”
- “there is nothing too hard for God”
- “in Christ Jesus' name we pray. Amen!”
Those are all nice comments, but none of them compromise The Gospel. Remember, this video is called: “Kanye West's Born Again Testimony.” I triple-dog dare you to show me a clear Gospel testimony from Kanye West. You cannot! Kanye is a WOLF in SHEEP'S clothing!
Even more disturbing is that if you look at the viewer comments on YouTube under the video, you'll find all of the following ludicrous fifteen statements. I felt like vomiting and couldn't read anymore comments from these fools. These deceived people are all blinded by Satan, spiritual retards, and have no clue what it truly means to be a 'born-again' Christian. They idolize Kanye. I simply took the first fifteen comments are they were entered, I didn't leave any out, nor did I arrange them differently. Not one person saw through Kanye as a wolf in sheep's clothing...
- He is risking fame and fortune to glorify God. Pray for our brave brother.
- It’s not easy for one to declare that Jesus Christ is Lord in public.
- He’s logical, loves the lord, loves his wife and kids, and not afraid of nothing. He’s a good one. Praise God
- “The devil had me chasin’ a gold statue”...that’s such a great confession.
- Hallelujah, every tongues shall confess that Jesus is Lord
- I want many more artist to come to Christ...God bless them.
- The whole world was with him when he was being sinful, but now that he’s a man of the Lord, they decide to call him insane.
- This is some serious courage. Even Jesus said that it would be easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to come into salvation. Kanye has honestly shook off all the evil trappings of this world to glorify God.
- I'm seeing Saul that was converted to Paul.... ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE....
- With Kanye’s influence , he could win a lot of souls for Christ. Pray for him
- When he said he didn’t want his wife showing off her body and to only preserve herself For him I knew there was a change in Kanye. There’s something beautiful about that in a couple when a man protects a woman like that.
- Who is me to judge him, if he said he is saved, born again and now following Jesus. Then he is, may God continue to bless him.
- Let God protect his destiny and spiritual journey.
- Even if he is grabbing the audience for a second, if they hear him even a bit, it's a chance for another person to find God and that's good.
- I hope Kanye is ready, the world turns on Christian's really fast, hold tightly to the Lord Jesus, Brother!
Dear reader, none of that compromises THE GOSPEL! The Devil loves to obscure the truth of the Gospel with religion. I listened to a wonderful MP3 sermon yesterday by Pastor Jack Hyles (1926-2001). The sermon is called: “Yea, Yea, And Nay, Nay.” In the sermon Dr. Hyles makes this helpful statement:
“Regeneration is what God does in response to your flipping the switch of faith! All you do is trust the Savior—you do nothing more, you do nothing less. Now you've got to know you're a sinner, and you've got to know that sinners are lost, and you've got to know that Jesus died for sinners, and you've got to know that if you trust Him, He'll take you to Heaven when you die; but the minute you know those things and BY FAITH say: 'That's it! And that's what I'm trusting, and I'm merely relying on that to get me to Heaven—then anything more than that is too much, anything less than that is too little, and the Devil likes to come and complicate salvation!” —Pastor Jack Hyles, a precious quote from the MP3 sermon, “Yea, Yea, And Nay, Nay!”
I love that truth!
Vile Rapper and Religious Con Man 'Kanye West' for Future U.S. President?
Kanye West recently said publicly that he fully expects to one day be U.S. President. It wouldn't surprise me! I found an interesting article today titled: “We Asked Religious Experts About Kanye West's 'Jesus Is King'.” In this intriguing article by Kristin Corry, the subtitle reads: “Ahead of the release of Kanye's ninth album, we talked to divinity professors to put the rapper's turn to the Lord into context.” That caught my attention, curious to learn about Kanye West's theology.
Could Kanye West be positioning himself for politics? ...
"If you want to do anything with the Black people in this country you still have to go to or go through a Black church," Dr. Jay-Paul Hinds, an Assistant Professor at Princeton Theological Seminary, tells VICE. "The political election season is warming up again and you're going to see politicians in the churches again because it's still the main avenue by which you reach the African American community."
Kanye's fixation with the Black church has implications beyond what Jesus Is King will sound like. The optics of the Trump-adjacent rapper who said slavery sounded like "a choice" making his rounds at institutions that preach theology that dates back to enslavement should draw skepticism.
"It raises questions of how does [Kanye] situate himself to that particular [Black Christian] prophetic tradition that is much more interested in the social good and social welfare as opposed to personal piety," Visiting Assistant Professor at New York University Dr. Xavier Pickett says.
I had to look up the word “commodify” in the following quote. It means to monetize something to make money, to turn it into a commodity. In the case of Kanye, to commodify effectively means to exploit Christianity for selfish interests...
...What is the difference between him [Kanye] making a song like "Jesus Walks" and him making a conceptual album like Jesus Is King? What does it look like to commodify religion and the church?
I agree with Professor Jay-Paul Hinds of Princeton Theological Seminary, who says:
Kanye is doing nothing different than what televangelists do on a weekly basis which sells the word, sells the message, sells the gospel. It's "If I don't sell this right, I'm not going to get viewership. If I don't sell this right, somebody's not going to buy my tapes. If I don't sell this right, somebody's not going to come to my conferences." Even on a micro-level, "If I don't sell this right, people aren't going to come to my church." Membership, tithing, all of it is about commodifying the gospel. He's doing nothing different.SOURCE: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/j5ynv3/we-asked-religious-experts-about-kanye-wests-new-church-album-jesus-is-king
The danger is you really do lose the message in this repacking of the gospel in so many different ways. The focus becomes how it's communicated rather than the message itself.
My fear is for how many people were at New Birth who hadn't been to church in years and decided that Sunday I'm going to turn my life around because of what Kanye said. I'm going to be born again today because of what Kanye said. There's an irresponsibility to it when you get in that kind of forum. You can't do that every week. You may be getting people converted initially but are these people then going to communities to help them develop a real ethical lifestyle? [emphasis added]
In other words, Kanye West is a big time false prophet who has perverted the Gospel. There is no such thing as “repackaging of the Gospel.” To do so is to corrupt the truth! Anyone who repackages the Gospel has been inspired by demons! The Gospel is the 'GOOD NEWS' of Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial, and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-6). Kanye West has 'A FORM OF GODLINESS,' but he is guilty of 'DENYING THE POWER THEREOF'! That 'POWER' is The Gospel. The Word of God admonishes us 'FROM SUCH TURN AWAY'!!!
Kanye's teachings of multiple spirits working through him is witchcraft, not Bible Christianity!
ABOVE: As an interesting bit of trivia, Margaret Hamilton (1902-1985) who starred as 'The Wicked Witch of The West' in the 1939 classic film, The Wizard Of Oz, was a Sunday school teacher in real life. Margaret broke her foot on the set making the film.

that I can do!”

so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
