Kanye West Confirms He Recently Converted to Christianity
Written by Smooth FM on October 14, 2019
Kanye West has declared definitively he’s a man of God now … specifically, a converted Christian. He made the declaration while giving Washington D.C. a taste of his new album.
Kanye was in Washington on Saturday with his family, first stopping off at HBCU Howard University to do his traditional Sunday Service, then heading over to George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium later in the day for a listening party.
“I want to let you know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon,” West told the crowd. “We are here to spread the gospel.”
“Excuse me if I mispronounce anything,” he added. “I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.”
Given his ongoing Sunday Service events and his vow to move away from making secular music in favor of creating only gospel music, West fully committing to his faith by becoming a Christian convert falls in line with his recent exploits.
Kanye’s pastor, Adam Tyson, hinted at this new direction by revealing how West reacts to people cursing in his presence.
“If somebody cusses in his presence, I’ve heard him say a couple of times, ‘Hey, man, you can’t cuss when you’re with me. I’m a born-again Christian,'” Tyson said.
The signs have been there for a while now that Ye’s fully embraced his faith — he’s been holding Sunday Services for well over a year, and Kim just had the kids baptized in Armenia.
