“I AM a God,” Kanye West proclaims over and over in one of the songs on his latest album, Yeezus (the album’s title itself a mixture of his nickname – ‘Ye – and Jesus).
Pronounce yourself God enough times and eventually your fans agree. The newly-launched website Yeezianity.com is for those looking to convert to Yeezianity, which proudly advertises itself as “THE BEST CHURCH OF ALL TIME!!!!!”
“We are an anonymous group who believes that the one who calls himself Yeezus is a divine being who has been sent by God to usher in a New Age of humanity,” explain the Yeezites (or is that Yeezians?) on the site.
According to them about their ‘savior’
His real name is never to be spoken.
He is known to us only as Yeezus.
He has shown the world the creative potential of a human being and he serves as a model for behavior and ethic.
Their 5 pillars are
1. All things created must be for the good of all
2. No human being’s right to express themselves must ever be repressed
3. Money is unnecessary except as a means of exchange
4. Man possesses the power to create everything he wants and needs
5. All human suffering exists to stimulate the creative powers of Man
“Jesus has all this baggage and all these connotations, and Yeezus is this new thing – and that’s why I say in the ‘Our Saviour’ part of the site, “We don’t speak of his public persona.” Because Yeezus is when Kanye elevates to that God-level, which I feel like we all have the potential to do,” he told them.
Jesus has too much baggage, so you choose to worship a Kardashian-impregnating, award show-interrupting, tantrum-throwing rapper? Makes sense to us.
“If you’re undergoing a profound religious awakening while reading this, we’d like to invite you to step into the light: joining the church as is simple as emailing them “an unidentifiable picture of yourself holding up a piece of paper or some other creative design stating, ‘I Believe In Yeezus.'”
Well this could be the height of madness idolizing a man as a god, but hey-that is what happens. This are predictions made accurately by Christ 2000 years ago. That the love of many shall go cold, people shall be lovers of self and money and they shall attempt to rise up above all that is called God.
At some point people come out and say stop judging its someone’s personal choice, but if ever history has a lesson to teach its the unfortunate fact that it kinda loves repeating itself. Moreover, the actions of a group of people on religious issues have always had repercussions to the entire nation. The lessons the Israelites learnt in the wilderness are yet to get to our minds but the justice of God shall soon catch up with us.
And now we have another Church based on Beyonce
