A Christian artist says what he witnessed at a recent Kanye West 'Sunday service' was a genuine move of God focussed on Christ, and Christ alone.
Thousands of people gathered outside a church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana after a last-minute announcement that West would be holding one of his services outside Bethany Church.
Christian rapper Curvine was one of those in attendance. He says he and his wife took in the service together. In a post to his Facebook, Curvine says, "If you’ve ever doubted the legitimacy or spiritual impact of this #sundayservice project, simply look at this incredible shot that was taken during the altar call."
Curvine writes that the event "was NOT a stage that Ye set to absorb the spotlight and share an unbiblical 'Gospel according to Kanye.' On the contrary, he maintained an impressive posture of humility for the entire service."
Criticism that West should not be teaching is unfounded, Curvine says, as West allowed "more seasoned and mature believers such as the choir director and a personal Mentor/Pastor to carry the weight of facilitating ministry.
"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."
Curvine says that he witnessed thousands respond to the Gospel. "In a crowd of 6,000 people from all walks of life, all ages, and all races, I witnessed over 1,000 individuals 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 tonight. 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," Curvine says.
