Lord Have Mercy: Kanye West Name Is Now Replacing The Name of God In The Book Of Genesis?
We live in a world where artists to call themselves God and fans eat it up and worship the music like religion. Kanye West is one of those artists; he even featured God on his Yeezus single “I Am A God.” Well, what happens when one person takes it a bit further and replaces the name of God with Kanye in the book of Genesis from the Bible? Meet the Book Of Yeezus.
A new version of the Bible is for sale on Etsy. It’s called “The Book of Yeezus: A Bible For The Modern Day.” In every mention where God’s name would normally be, editors have changed the name to Kanye. For example, “In the beginning, Kanye created the heavens and the Earth.” The creators said the idea came from a need for Generation Y to have a superstar to call its own — one that will “accompany that generation through it’s evolution, being a part of and ultimately shaping its identity.” They added, “[the book] is an interventionist art, coffee-table novelty that will appeal to Kanye fans everywhere and those made curious by this enormous cultural phenomenon.” The hard-cover book sells for $20.
