Omaha, Nebraska — Kanye West’s new album “Jesus Is King” has listeners all over the globe in a full trot with excitement, and it’s topping nearly every chart, even debuting at #1 on the US Billboard 200.
Christians have been very vocal about their support of Kanye’s gospel album. A quick check on Twitter or Facebook and you’ll quickly realize there is nothing but Psalm-like praise for the entirety of the record, from the east coast to the west coast and every coast in between. Well, almost every coast.
“I’ve never really been a rap guy.” This kind of statement is taboo in Christian circles since the release of “Jesus Is King,” but a Nebraska man known as the only Christian who hasn’t listened to, and loved, Kanye West’s new album is ready to face his critics.
Meet Trevor Gaines. “Kanye seems like a nice enough guy. I can’t say whether I’d vote for him in 2020, or 2024, you know?” Mr. Gaines is, of course, referring to news that broke this morning of Kanye West’s plans to run for US President in 2024.
“Politics aside, I’ve gotten a lot of backlash for not checking out [Kanye’s] new music. In fact, last Sunday when I went to drop my offering in the plate, I was told to stop, to instead use that money to download ‘Jesus Is King’. I think I heard someone whisper ‘WWJD.’ Well, I don’t know exactly what Jesus would do, you know? Does he like rap music? Look what’s in the Bible. Psalms is basically the journal of a struggling singer/songwriter… and that’s in the Bible.”
At the time of publication, Trevor has yet to listen to a single track from “Jesus Is King.” Friends and family, as well as church-goers in his community, are praying for him and urging him to repent.
