The apparent conversion of Kanye West has drawn the skorn of many Christians. He’s trying to buy his way in like Simon the Magician (Acts 8:9). It’s just a ploy to sell his music. He’ll lead the unwashed masses astray. Have you listened to his previous music? And so on. It’s been a fascinating topic of conversation. And on the flip side, he’s viewed with derision by Hollywood.
But what if he did find the Lord, would it not look something like this? Kanye doing what he does best with a totally new message? We need to remember that the Apostle Paul was viewed with significant cynicism upon his conversion, and continued to be feared (Acts 9:13-14).
We can’t really know for sure, unless we are God, but following the lead of Jesus we should give Kanye the benefit of the doubt.
For he who is not against us is on our side. Mark 9:4
