Musician Kanye West is accustomed to making headlines, often because of controversial things he has said or done. Lately, however, he is creating a buzz for going public with his newfound faith.
Commentator Michael Knowles recently discussed West’s new album. He hosts The Michael Knowles Show at the Daily Wire. In 2017, he wrote the No. 1 national bestselling treatise Reasons To Vote For Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide, which President Trump hailed as “a great book for your reading enjoyment.”
“You got to meet people where they are, you’ve got to be all things to all people,” Knowles said. “And that’s a little bit what Kanye is doing here, I think. The album is called `Jesus is King.’ The album isn’t called ‘Kanye Is King.’ The album isn’t called ‘Kanye Is Jesus.’ He’s talked a little bit that way in the past, but that doesn’t seem to be the way he’s talking now. Kanye is not always talking about his political views.”
He believes West can connect with a generation that is searching for meaning.
“If he can bring people around to Christ, I think that’s a great thing,” Knowles said. “And if they can start at Sunday service and end up at church, I think that’s a great thing. They’re not going to start out at church; they’re going to start out at brunch. Then the question is, where are they going to go after brunch? Are they going to go to a political rally for leftism, or are they going to go to a Sunday service? And then once they go to the Sunday service and they get a little taste, I don’t think they’re going to be satisfied there.
“I think, I hope, they’re going to want to start going to church, and they’re gonna want to start reading the Bible. Kanye can bring them there. That’s a good thing.”
