Production wise, it’s “Kanye West” musically the album sounds great. The concern comes biblically on the content Kanye chose to deliver on this album. One thing I have always liked about Kanye Wests’ music is that he always appears to be honest with his fans on where he is in life at the moment. This album is no different, on “Donda” I was happy to hear that he is still on his faith journey. Nonetheless, it is obvious that he is back and forth with his beliefs on this album.
“I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold I am about to spit you out of my mouth. ” Revelation 3:15-17
However, most of the world is in this same space that Kanye is in. Most of us are in the middle. We love God, but do we really want to follow all 613 laws of Gods word to the letter? We love God, but we also enjoy, love a lot of things about this world. Every year during election time the news tells us that it’s not the folks of the right nor the folks on the left that determine the election outcome but those in the middle. However, Jesus said if you are neither hot nor cold he would spit us out. I think Kanye was just expressing his truth. I believe most people come to this conclusion about their faith, in this middle space, once they continue searching for the truth and find a truth that doesn’t align with what they have understood about it. I would encourage everyone to check out this album, there are explicit lyrics, Hot nor Cold, my take away for the world and for Kanye is to follow God, put your understanding away, let his words be your truth and you will be set free.
“If you continue in My word, you are truly My disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32
