Kanye Brings Out ‘Jesus’ On Stage

kanye2

Over the weekend, the internet was on fire again thanks to Kanye. For those who don’t know, let me bring you up to speed. Over the weekend, Mr. West kicked off his tour in Seattle in his usual controversial fashion. He brought out a Jesus look-alike for his act. Yep. White robe, long hair, the-Jesus-we-see-in-the-movies type of Jesus.┬áThat Jesus said this to him on stage “I didn’t come to make bad people feel good. I came to make dead people alive. To show people the light. That’s all I need from you. Show people the light, the light of truth.” Seems like Mr. West is on a mission. I’m just not sure what that mission is. His stunt even left some of his hardcore fans confused about him.

 

After the show, he was interviewed by a radio station and said he wanted to show people that they can have a relationship with Jesus. He also mentioned that unlike other religions, Christians are allowed to portray God by making movies, plays and doing art. This incident reminded me of Apostle Paul in Philippians 1. Many people were preaching Jesus even then. Some were doing it out of envy and others out of love. He finishes with this in verse 18 “What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is proclaimed, and in that I rejoice. Yes, and I will rejoice, (Philippians 1:18, ESV)”. So even though some were not preaching Jesus Christ with the right motive, he still rejoiced that Jesus was proclaimed.

 

I don’t know what Kanye is trying to do here, but like me, he needs prayer. I shall leave you with this quote from rapper Eshon Burgundy: “Be careful who you’re worshipping when you wave your hands in concerts.”

Peep the video of the performance below. Do you think he is trying to get a message across or is he just blasphemous?
