This week’s #1 album is Kanye West’s Yeezus. Despite being leaked, the record sold over 327,000 copies in its first week. Of course by giving his album that title and having a song titled “I am a God” (with “God” listed as a collaborator on the track), he opens himself up to criticism from Christians. TMZ has taken it upon themselves to ask some Christian musicians what they think of the album. P.O.D. frontman Sonny Sandoval isn’t so excited about “I Am a God.” “Kanye West deceives many and will lead many people astray,” he commented, quoting Matthew 7:15-23 which reads “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwarley they are ravenous wolves.”
On the other hand, Stryper frontman Michael Sweet has no problem with “God” being a featured collaborator on the song. “When you believe in God, you want Him to be a part of everything you do, guiding you through the entire process. So I understand what is meant.” That’s spoken like someone that definitely hasn’t heard the song, in which West has a conversation with Jesus about how rich he is. Sweet goes on to wonder what instrument God would play, offering up “I’ve always wondered – is God a drummer, a bassist, a guitarist or a singer? I’m guessing The Master of all.” Wait, what?
