Say what you will about rapper Kanye West — but he’s Making Christianity Great Again.

There’s something very powerful about the musician’s transformation.

If you look at what he’s accomplished here, you can see he’s been touched by the hand of God.

He’s doing the Lord’s work, and he’s bringing Christianity back into the forefront of American culture.

It’s always belonged there but sadly has diminished over the years.

“The religious landscape of the United States continues to change at a rapid clip,” as Pew Forum noted last month.

“In Pew Research Center telephone surveys conducted in 2018 and 2019, 65 percent of American adults describe themselves as Christians when asked about their religion, down 12 percentage points over the past decade. Meanwhile, the religiously unaffiliated share of the population, consisting of people who describe their religious identity as atheist, agnostic or ‘nothing in particular,’ now stands at 26 percent, up from 17 percent in 2009.”

I have wondered how this country would get back to its Christian roots — and wondered what would be the catalyst to propel us back.

Would it be some tragic event like 9/11?

It seemed it would take something that monumental to change the direction we’re heading in now — thanks to the degenerate liberals, in my view, who are turning this country into Sodom and Gomorrah.

But little did I know that a formerly egotistical rapper who married a reality star would change his life — and go on a crusade to save the American people’s souls one sermon at a time.

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

After all, a billionaire real estate mogul stepped in and saved America.

Last Sunday, West held a service in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, at Bethany Church.

Over 6,000 people attended the service, and of those 6,000 souls, over 1,000 accepted Christ into their hearts, according to reports.

That’s amazing.

Check this out from The Daily Wire:

More than 1,000 people who gathered at Kanye West’s Sunday Service in Louisiana accepted Christ on Friday night, according to a pastor who attended the event.

Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, which is just north of New Orleans, hosted the event, which drew over 6,000 people, says Curvine Brewington, a pastor at Crossroads Church in Lafayette, Louisiana.

In an Instagram post, Brewington wrote: “Tonight, @candacebrewington & I got to experience Kanye West’s Sunday Service at @bethany_church in Baton Rouge. If you’ve ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot taken by @the.smitan during the altar call. YES, I said ALTAR CALL. Tonight, worship was lifted, the name of Christ was exalted, the Word of God was preached, a multitude prayed together, the Gospel was clearly proclaimed, and an opportunity to respond was given. In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, i witnessed over 1,000 people respond to the Gospel by raising their hands to accept Jesus as their Lord & Savior! Say what you want, & think what you want … but trust me when I tell you – The Spirit of the Living God was indeed present. I danced, wept, stood in awe of God’s redemptive work, & can honestly say that tonight I witnessed a new wave of REVIVAL first hand. #Jesusisking”

Kanye West’s new Gospel album reached number one on the Billboard charts.

The album, “Jesus Is King,” also broke West’s prior streaming record.

The 27-minute music release had the second largest sales week of the year for an R&B/hip-hop album — with over 100,000 copies sold.

“Number one in the country right now. Number one in the world right now. Jesus is King,” West declared to the crowd at his Baton Rouge service.

“Number-one song, number-one album — and they told me I would [inaudible] if I gave my life to Christ, but God is showing out.”

“Who’s number one? Jesus is number one!” West went on to say.

“Father, I stretch my hands to you,” he declared.
