Kanye West open up about his faith and gave reason why Christians need to speak out. During a interview with to GQ magazine’s Will Welch, he’s “definitely born again.”
The 42-year-old rapper noted that people perceive speaking up as Christian as being judgmental as though everyone has sin but you will be held responsible for you actions by other believers.
“They think that all of a sudden you believe in Christ, so we’re not even supposed to speak up,” West said. “And if we speak up, people will say, ‘Oh, you’re being judgmental.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, now, because I’m Christian, I don’t even have an opinion anymore?’ I’m Christian and I still have an opinion. But my opinion is based on the Word.”
Talking about how environment have affected some believers while growing up as Christian kids noting that his Sunday service event are located at places of “no judgement.”
“I feel that the church that most people grew up on as kids had a negative environment. The greatest thing for me, as someone who’s given their life to Christ, is knowing that other people have that as an anchor and a form of healing,” he said of his events.
He continued on how service to God is the most important thing, he said those who are not in service to God are “in service to everything else.”
“To live inside of sin, it’s going to cost you more than you can pay,” West said. “You don’t want to continue to sin with no repentance. I understand that people feel that I’ve made some cultural sins. But the only real sins are the sins against God, and you don’t want to continue to sin against God.”
On the other side of politics, the entertainer will be voting for the first time in life this November and affirms that he will be voting for President Donald Trump.
“I will not be told who I’m gonna vote on because of my color,” he told the Welch. “I’m definitely voting this time. And we know who I’m voting on.”
Faithwire noted that there were plenty of critics who argued West’s career would plummet after he publicly supported the Republican leader in 2016. For West, though, that was a nonissue, because he’s “not gonna be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over.”
“Because guess what: I’m still here! ‘Jesus is King’ was No. 1,” he added.
