Kanye West is a well-known artist in the entertainment industry around the world. He is a Grammy Award-winning rapper and record producer and fashion designer. He has a lot of controversy going on but recently, he became a headline in the news when he openly declared that he has became a follower of Christ. An article in XXL Magazine reports that West was five-years-old when he first saw a Playboy magazine.

“My dad had a Playboy left out at age five and it’s affected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life. From age five till now having to kick the habit. And it just presents itself in the open like it’s okay and I stand up and say, ‘No it’s not okay.”

The music artist also discussed his battle with mental health and how the style of his music is changing.

While making his new album, Jesus is King, West asked people who were working with him to refrain from premarital sex.

“Now, I’m letting you know what Jesus has done for me and in that, I’m no longer a slave. I’m a son now, a son of God – I’m free.” West said. His life was changed after he was hospitalized in 2016. Watch Kanye West Born Again Testimony below.

    I personally believe salvation is personal and I don’t judge a believer by the quality of what he has to say when he preaches but rather I judge a beleiever by his life style and how much love he or she possess. If you don’t have love then you know not God..let Kanye be and all you can do for him now is pray for him and encourage him…

  • Due to the emergence of the worshiptainment phenomenon,many fall in love with the emotional experience than with the Lord. The “praise and worshiptainment” phenomenon that has dominated the charismatic Christian fellowship, was created due to a gross mistranslation of the bible. God does not inhabit the praises of His people. This doctrine is the result of the King James mistranslation of psalms 22:3. The King James rendering of psalms 22:3 is ,”But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel”However, the proper translation from the original Hebraic text reads,”You are enthroned as holy; The praise of Israel”Just as Tom Brady is the praise of New England,Lebron James was the praise of Cleveland, and Prince was the praise of Minneapolis.God is the praise of his people.Its one thing for Kanye to share his testimony of the gift of salvation.But anything other than that is coming from his flesh

  • David Gefrovich says:

    I realize it is not up to us to question a person’s heart and SALVATION. Three people know if you’re saved….God, Satan, and You! I encourage all people to be cautious in these Last day of great DECEPTION! In Matthew 24, Jesus’ first words were, “Let no Man DECEIVE you!” The TRUE GOSPEL by which we are saved is found in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 and if you’re reading this and claim to be a SAVED believer, please remember we are saved by the Finished Work of Jesus Christ ALONE and the FACT that you have turned from any one particular sin, does not mean you’re saved! EVERY RIGHTEOUS thing we do is “filthy rags” compared to the Finished Work of Jesus Christ! It’s ALL ABOUT the BLOOD ATONEMENT of Jesus Christ ALONE!
    God Bless All in these Last Days and let no man DECEIVE you.

  • Keith says:

    I just hope he gets with a strong pastor to help root and ground him. Suffer not a novice to preach or teach. Can’t play

  • Lisa Werstler says:

    So thankful for his voice and testimony. Surely many will hear about Jesus and be encouraged.

  • Ed says:

    It is difficult for me to see this. I am in prayer for Kanye and his family, that he won’t get caught into ministry work too quickly without a full change of heart. It would be better now that he should spend the next 3 year’s exclusively with God and then return fully anointed by God like Paul certainly did that in scripture and the disciples did the same with Jesus. I thank God for his decision to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. But to follow Christ is so much more than that. One must deny himself. That is not an easy thing to do, especially when you already was influencing people in an ungodly way prior to the change. Kanye makes me think I can go to the military, demand my combat air fighter pilot license without having any form of training. It’s pretty dangerous. God have mercy on us when we are not trained up to be lead by you.

    • JC says:

      It is not for us to judge Kanye or the timing of Gods call concerning him. His personal relationship with Jesus is his alone and has nothing to do with St Paul. People judged many men throughout history in their devotion. Don’t forget Matthew, Moses, David, and John .
      It is one thing to be discerning, but I personally am inspired that in this day and age, a celebrity such as Kanye is standing for Jesus . He is reaching many who might not otherwise pay attention.

      • Amy says:

        I very much agree with you. I just feel that if he’s pointing to Christ, he’s doing right. He’s not trying to get people to follow himself, he’s saying we need to be examples of what a Christian looks like. I’m thankful for every soul that turns to Christ. No one will ever be perfect as long as they are on this Earth. If he slips, and he will, so really when,we need to be real enough to look in the mirror. Not judge Kayne. As long as we ask for forgiveness, and keep turning away from sin, God is just and faithful to forgive. It hurts my heart to see so much negativity and criticism and speculation. Everyone walks and grows in their own timing. In GOD’S timing. 3 days or 30 years.

      • Daniel Baldwin says:

        Mark 10:17-27
        Mark 10:17-27 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
        The Rich Young Ruler
        17 As He was setting out on a journey, a man ran up to Him and knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 18 And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone. 19 You know the commandments, ‘Do not murder, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.’” 20 And he said to Him, “Teacher, I have kept all these things from my youth up.” 21 Looking at him, Jesus felt a love for him and said to him, “One thing you lack: go and sell all you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” 22 But at these words [a]he was saddened, and he went away grieving, for he was one who owned much property.

        23 And Jesus, looking around, *said to His disciples, “How hard it will be for those who are wealthy to enter the kingdom of God!”

    • Laura Hanks says:

      Did you spend 3 years?

    • Jim says:

      Well said. From our outside view the best we can do for Kenya is pray.

  • Lauren says:

    What I love is the honesty. It’s raw and imperfect. Just like any new believer. Just because a person is a new believer doesn’t mean they have all of life figured out. And for those of you who are sKepitcal, I ask why? I listened to this video without an expectation of what it would be. I have never really been a fan of Kanye or his music for that matter, but I can clearly hear where he is coming from. He is seeing truth. quite clearly in most everything he says, even if he doesn’t always communicate it in a way that is understood by people who have not experienced what he is saying. I have experinced the places that he is coming from. I have seen what he is seeing. He has awakened to a new world that he might not yet have all of the tools to express. Besides we all know that its impossible to explain a miracle. Its imporssible to exlain God or the shift that he creates in a life. I have experienced the wonder of when you see God working all around you, you see the connections and miracles in all things. I never try to convenice anyone of Gods existance. But rather know its something they have to experince. He’s a baby in Jesus and one of the greatest things that I heard, is that he knows that. He doesn’t know all of scripture. But does he let that stop him from being vocal about how God has changed his life? And there are peoole out there that know tons of scripture and sit in their little church pews jusding rather than doing anything about it. The thing I didn’t understand is that the interviewer trying to trip him up or interject his own thougths or believes or making assumption about what it is that Kanye was saying and interjecting in a way that wasn’t even relevant to the conversation. I will be following this man closely and will celebrate his growth in Christ Jesus. God bless you!

  • Luposian says:

    Is Kanye West truly saved? Methinks not.

  • Jesus Freak says:

    Kanye West is proof God is Greater! If you too accept him, he will use you as His platform as well. A true Prodigal Son, Awoken and Free! And don’t listen to anyone else about acknowledging the Devil. If you let Satan in, if you welcome him and speak of him then YES, he will torment you and try to convince you hate and anger is the best way. But if you “Seek God With All Your Heart” Daily (Jeremiah 29:13), Good ALWAYS repels Evil! GOD ALWAYS WINS OVER EVIL! God is the only Defense you need. Fear comes from Evil, Lucifer designed Fear. Don’t play into the Devil’s tricks, everyone is a whole lot stronger than you think with a personal daily relationship with God!

    I am a Warrior of God
    I am a Purple Heart Combat Veteran (not proud of my sins for false and failing Manmade Freedoms)
    I am a Re-Born Christian
    I am a Crusader by Blood

    Guard your heart and soul with God & Jesus Always! Innocents can be restored and you will want to get started soon, trust me on this one People. You don’t want to miss out on True Freedom, Love and many many Blessing! As a witness, God is very much alive and still proving doubters and nonbelievers wrong! Why else would Kanye of all People make a Holy Movement and jeopardize everything… lay everything on the line and open with full honesty? God is the reason, he is real and he is working to this very DAY!

    • Joe M says:

      There are some who are skeptical of his intentions and motives. It’s a little too soon to judge. I have no opinion on him yet but don’t be so quick to accept what you see on the surface with anything in this era.

    • Steve Chavez says:

      Amen!!.. how can we get you to come to our church ?? to here your testimony, to reach out to lost lost souls. My name is pastor Steve Chavez from city of Pico Rivera Ca. Agape Christian Center..

  • Charles Knox says:

    God is working his Glorious Power through a man who so many pay attention to. The fact that West has made this magnificent transformation and made it with such passion only shows how truly amazing it feels to be free from the ways of the wicked. The devil is losing ground today, and may God keep winning over the hearts of all that seek him!
    On a cold December the 7th, in the middle of the night, I was shot at 16, technically, I was dead for minutes. I was baptized at 12, I have always known there is a God, in a very subtle voice, He spoke to me as I was floating out of my own body. “Do you want to come with me, or stay there?” I answered, a witness heard it himself, “ “I want to stay here!” Approximately 30 seconds passed, he asked again. “Are you certain, do you want to stay or come with me?” Again, I answered “I want to stay here!” He replied “You are going to be ok, do not be afraid, you will be alright.” I imagined a coat of many colors wrapped around me as I woke up from the floorboard of the car, covered in blood, a 38 special hollow point struck my hand and went into my chest, missing the top of my heart by literally an 1/8th of inch over my heart just minutes prior to this encounter. I told the friend driving me to the hospital “slow down, you’re going to kill us, I’m ok.” I then proceeded to direct this 15 year old where to drive into an emergency room and walked in on my own two feet. Yes it hurt, the covert took months, but I am now stronger than ever at nearly 44.
    When God spoke to me, I could hear nothing but happiness and people laughing and celebrating and it was bright and warm feeling. There was absolutely no sadness there, only joy… This is 100% accurate, nothing added for effect, nothing taken away to make it sound any different than what it was.. Believe me, there is a God and Heaven is real!
    Thank You God for saving me!

  • Karen says:

    Congratulations on your newly found freedom!

  • Ginny Cook says:

    You Go Kanya Raise Up Jesus Christ Our Lord.Many Blessings & Prayer’s. Jesus’ Is King ???

  • Just me says:

    Wonderful insight. Famous defense for sinners if you point out anything wrong “why are you so judgemental” – OR “your bible says you may not judge”

    Great point: “I am not judging, I am only saying what I see..”

    God bless all you can reach and change their lives!!!

  • James Malla says:

  • Amanda says:

    I’m overwhelmed with excitement to hear your opinions! Welcome to the family. I recently returned to Jesus as well. It’s so strange to hear someone else with some of the “same crazy” ideas I have. It’s because the Lord has changed the way we think and feel. BTW God is using you to show off!

  • Barbara Knowles says:
