The Book of Yeezus Replaces Biblical Mentions of God with “Kanye”
Surely Kanye is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid.
Have you ever read the bible cover-to-cover? Neither have we, but we’re inspired to give this Kanye West-enhanced version a crack. Consequence of Sound reported that an Etsy user was selling The Book of Yeezus: A Bible for the Modern Day. In it, every single mention of God is replaced with “Kanye,” making for some pretty fun verses, such as:
In the beginning Kanye created the heavens and the earth. – Genesis 1:1
But be assured today that the lord your Kanye is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. – Deuteronomy 9:3
Every word of Kanye is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. – Proverbs 30:5
Aside from being hilarious, it’s a fairly natural fit: Kanye did release a song called “I Am a God.” And we’re sure that God, at some point in time, has yelled “hurry up with my damn croissants.”
Unfortunately, the link to the product has since been removed — but, then again, we know how to use the find and replace function.
