“I don’t subscribe the term and concept of God fearing. That’s a dated mentality that was used to control people,” West tweeted over the weekend. “We are in the future. If God is love and love it’s the opposite of fear then … to fear God makes no sense.”
After receiving floods of support from some of his 18.8 million followers on the social media platform, Minor decided to tweet West back and help bring clarity to his confusion.
“Fear in the idea of viewing God as the big bad villain in the sky that will destroy isn’t a Christian concept at all,” the Christian hip-hop artist explained.
Minor, who is gearing up to release his new album The Trap, went on to illustrate that the biblical meaning is actually loving, despite West’s interpretation.
“Fear = Reverence like a parent. Knowing that God loves us but also disciplines us,” Minor maintained. “Always for our good and betterment.”
In the past, West has also said he was a God but through it all, he still maintained he is a Christian.
West has also publicly stated that he trusts Wilkerson to advise him. The Chicago native said that Wilkerson encouraged him to use a mock Jesus during his Yeezus Tour.
“He (Kanye West) happens to be someone who does love Jesus and I just said, ‘Man would you design the cover of the book?'” the minister told Rapzilla.
Wilkerson reportedly first met West after the rapper attended one of his church services in 2012. According to People magazine, the Vous Church in downtown Miami became a safe haven for Kim and Kanye.
