Kanye West preached ‘radical obedience’ to Jesus during Sunday service in Atlanta


Kanye West is sounding a lot like a preacher than some preachers lately. It was not different on Sunday at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, where Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant pastors.

Regular attendees at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church, were on Sunday morning treated to a 10-minute sermon by the hip-hop artist and among the hundreds of worshippers were rappers T.I, 2 Chainz, and actor Chris Tucker

West testified in a straightforward manner without sugar coating the gospel “Jesus, let’s be specific,” West shared, “Because the road to hell is paved with, ‘Oh, I’m just a good person.”

There was a lot of joy and cheer as West sang “use me, Lord,” along with a 600-person choir, and dropped a line about following Jesus with everything.

“You sent your son to die for us and all you ask is for radical obedience to you,” West said, referring to God the Father. “You’re not asking us to do the least. You know how people are like, ‘At least I…,’ how are we gonna do the least when he did the most?”

West has publicly struggled with mental health, he then testified.

“I’ve seen him work miracles in my life,” adding. “You know the devil presents so many flashy, shiny objects. I’ve seen everything that the devil could’ve showed you via TV, videos, car dealerships, jewelry, houses, and I’ll tell you…” He added, singing: “Nothin’ beats God…and a sound mind.”

With this new found light, some people seem to be questioning his motives and judging the fruit of his past. But as Believers, either we believe that the Word works or we don’t. Either He can turn the heart of a king or he can’t. Either Jesus saves or He doesn’t. I would like to believe that instead of running our mouths, we will pray for Kanye’s continued transformation. I know i’m so excited for his journey.

One thought on “Kanye West preached ‘radical obedience’ to Jesus during Sunday service in Atlanta

  • I pray that he truly has asked Jesus to come into his heart and asked for forgiveness and believe that Christ is the ONLY way to heaven. For there is nothing impossible for God. We don’t need to criticize or be negative. We need to encourage rather than be critical as Christians. So if this is true, Praise God!
