    Yep...just speaking on how it looks. There are a lot of folks syphoning God's glory, to add to their own. Is he one of them? Who knows...but it looks like it.

    An excerpt from Kevin Williamson's article on Kanye West's new-found faith:

    But the song in question, “Closed on Sunday,” is of some interest. It is a meditation on the Sabbath. (Chick-fil-A, a Christian-owned business, is famously closed on Sundays.) In the song, West advises (hectors, really) the listener to set aside social media and other technological distractions for the day and to turn instead to family and prayer. That is not the usual feel-good, milk-and-water, love-songs-to-Jesus style of pop-music Christianity. The Sabbath is about giving things up as well as enjoying them. Sohrab Ahmari, quondam antagonist of “David Frenchism,” has spoken wistfully about the possibility of reviving the so-called blue laws, which forbade certain kinds of commercial activity on Sundays. Taking the Sabbath seriously would represent a genuinely radical development for American Christianity, an assault on sensitive progressive cultural norms that would no doubt prove as controversial as homeschooling and abstinence advocacy. The rest of the album is similarly direct and uncompromising in its conception of Christian life and witness.

    ...Tyson is not a goo-goo New Age celebrity evangelist but is instead part of the intellectually rigorous conservative Reformed tradition, which puts a heavy emphasis on scripture and its inerrancy. Placerita Bible Church, according to its doctrinal statement, “is deeply committed to the absolute authority of the Bible. We are convinced that the Bible is the only trustworthy standard of what we should believe and how we should live. Our ultimate priority is to glorify God by faithfully proclaiming the truth of His Word so that people can clearly understand it and practically apply it to their lives.” That is the kind of Christianity in which West is being instructed.

    I would like to respectfully discuss this article and various points made. I don't know whether Kanye's conversion is real or simply a momentary enthusiasm but wonder when someone presents as Christian whether we shouldn't take this at face-value.
    Couple of thoughts.

    The example of the Ethiopian eunuch shows us to take faith professions at face value. Time will often show it it was a false conversion.

    IMO Christ is now our Sabbath rest, there is no special day. However there absolutely was never a change in the day to Sunday. This is beyond dispute IMO.

    Or because Christ is now your Sabbath rest, every day is special?

    In another sense, yes.

    I have no idea if Kayne's new found religious turn is real or not. I guess time will tell. But for him, here's hoping to heaven it is real.
