The False “Conversion” of Kanye West: Deception Abounding

And as the final demonstration that he is a false “prophet”, Enlow wrote: “It is going to become unpopular in Hollywood to not be righteous.  Studios will once again request Christian and Catholic boards for pre-approval of their movies” (italics added).  Enlow was referring to the days when the Jesuits and the Roman Catholic institution had their Hollywood production code and their Legion of Decency, and controlled the studios with an iron fist.  I have written extensively about this in my book, Jesuit Hollywood.[12]  But if Johnny Enlow really was a great Christian “spiritual mentor” and expert on prophecy, what is he doing longing for the days of Roman Catholic censorship to return?  No man claiming to be a Christian leader is sent by God if he can’t even see that Roman Catholicism is a false religion!  With spiritual blindness like this, anyone paying any heed to his scrambled-egg theology is as blind as he is.

Anticipating the “Don’t Judge” Judges

  Last point: there will always be plenty of fawning fans of Kanye West who will rush to his defence and scream, “You’re judging!  Don’t judge!”  If anyone today stands up and dares to say, “That man claims to be a Christian but his life shows that he isn’t”, there are going to be people accusingly pointing fingers as they shake with anger, shouting, “We can’t judge him!  The Lord is the judge.”  They in fact do the very thing they condemn in others: they judge! 

  They are the sad product of the kind of shallow, nonsensical, unbiblical preaching so prevalent today.  Of course we must judge!  Over and over in Scripture we are commanded to judge (e.g. Jn. 7:24; 1 Cor. 5:12; 6:4, 5).  And in practice we all judge, every single day, in all kinds of situations – and we have to!

An individual has to judge; so does a parent; a local church; etc.  Matt. 7:1 (“Judge not”) is explained by vv. 3-5 of the same chapter.  Christ condemns only hypocritical judging– not all judging.  See also Rom. 2:1, 3, 21-23.

  Kanye West is not a Christian, and the men praising him as some kind of “Christian superhero” are blind leaders of the blind.  This is judging, certainly.  But it is judging according to the standards of the Word of God.  The Bible says such men are not what they claim to be.  The Bible has judged them to be liars, deceivers, hypocrites.  If then we simply follow the Bible, we are merely declaring the judgment which the Bible pronounces.  And that is something every true Gospel minister, and every true believer, must do.
