American Actress Patricia Heaton says she’s in prayers for Kanye West because people want to see him fail at Christianity.
Patricia speaking, says:
“I was listening to Kanye’s interview with Big Boy this morning. I never thought I’d be downloading any Kanye West music, but here we are,” the actress told The Christian Post on Tuesday.
Kanye West released his ninth studio album last week, titled Jesus Is King, loaded with scripture and gospel content. The emcee and fashion mogul started hosting Sunday Service events at the top of the year that features gospel music and, more recently, sermons. A few months ago, West announced that he was a born again Christian and found healing after he was diagnosed as having bipolar disorder.
Patricia Heaton, a devout Catholic who often speaks out about social issues and her faith, said she’s “definitely praying for” Kanye West.
“It’s very hard. I think when someone of Kanye’s stature in the industry and someone who has his amount of fame makes that kind of proclamation, people then really watch and scrutinize everything he does to catch him falling,” she said.
“I hope that he can handle that because that’s what’s going to happen,” Patricia Heaton predicted. People want Kanye West to fail at Christianity,” she said.
“I think if you have the Christian perspective that this time we have on Earth is actually minimal compared to afterlife and that our lives are so filled with nonessential information — especially with the advent of social media — there has to be someone talking about eternal things and talking about our souls, and people actually are hungry for that, even if they aren’t aware of it.
“Most People are craving for meaning in their life and for something that lasts, something that’s not temporary,” she emphasizes.
Heaton’s advice for West was borne from her personal experience of being mocked for her faith, but the Ohio indigene said she doesn’t care because people wish to hear about the afterlife.
“We’re created for eternity. We’re not created for a short life. So even if I get criticized or rebuked, or people think I’m weird or strange, there’s someone out there wanting to hear this, that’s craving that message,” Heaton declared.
The Emmy Award-winner kickstarted her new comedy series “Carol’s Second Act” in September.
