What Should We Make of Kanye’s Profession of Faith and Celebrity Conversions in General?

What Should We Make of Kanye’s Profession of Faith and Celebrity Conversions in General? I answered that question on this episode of Real Truth. Real Quick.

Show Notes:

Principles:

  1. When someone professes their faith, Christians should encourage them and treat them like a true child of the faith.
  2. The first thing believers should do when someone professes their faith is rejoice.
  3. Truth is not true because people agree with it. It is true because it is truth.
  4. Your ministry should not have credibility because of a celebrity. It should be credible because it is defined by the love of Christ and sound doctrine.
  5. Pastors who platform celebrities too hastily are more pimps and predators than pastoral.
  6. If you’re giving celebrities more attention than another recent convert who is just as valuable to God, that is serious a problem.

Scripture:
