Kanye West’s Conversion Could Be a Cultural Wrecking Ball

"... West’s very public conversion to Christianity, a Christianity that bears no resemblance to the vague spiritualism of Moral Therapeutic Deism that is often associated with celebrity conversions." - National Review

I can't quite figure it out yet.  I have heard a few interviews with him and he seems to be genuine to a degree.

Some of the comments that he has made about his tax return sounds prosperity gospel light to me but he may have been taken out of context. Looking for the original comment.

Why so quickly out in the world and so publicly exposing his new faith in Christ.  So many times I  have seen this before and Evangelicals like to use a person like this to quickly and then they end up crashing and burning.  
 

The Celebrity that comes to my mind of taking his time after salvation to be fed and discipled  by the people who led him to the Lord is Brian "The Head" Welch  the founder of Corn.  I believe Brian spent three years away from music and his prior world before coming out into the public again.  During that time the church and the believers he associated with helped him to get anchored in the Lord.  
 

I pray and hope things work out for Kayne West and his wife will follow him and accept Christ.  I have personally seen how a change in Christ in one man's life can have a great impact on a whole family leading everyone to the Lord.  

When I first moved to Scranton, Pa to work for the US Treasury I met a man whose coming to Christ was such a powerful change in his life that all the family members got saved.  This guy was an Italian American Barber but before he was saved he ran with was and associated with and partied with all the made members of the Russell Bufalino Crime Family.   He was very good friends with these hoods and gambled with them and partied with them.   This. guys wife got saved and then he got saved and when the other family members saw the dramatic change in this man it was like all the dominos went down and everyone in the imediste and extended family came to the Lord.   

So in regards to Kayne West this maybe what we will see and what a miracle it would be to see if the dominos start following.
