There have been rumors for quite some time now on whether Kanye West is a Christian.

‘I want to let you know that I am not here for your entertainment this afternoon. We are here to spread the gospel,’ West began.

He later added, ‘Excuse me if I mispronounce anything. I am a recent convert. It means I recently got saved within this year.’
