  • Kanye West was a guest at pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church service in Houston, Texas, and he spoke at length about his spirituality.
  • Kanye said the devil had been ‘distracting’ him and called himself the ‘greatest artist that God has ever created.’

So, over the weekend, Kanye West showed up at pastor Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church service in Houston, Texas, and he had some things to share with the crowd. According to People, Kanye said the devil has been distracting him from focusing on God. He also talked a little bit about his renewed interest in spirituality.

‘I know that God’s been calling me for a long time and the devil’s been distracting me for a long time,’ Kanye said. ‘When I was in my lowest points, God was there with me and sending me visions and inspiring me, and I remember sitting in the hospital at UCLA after having a mental breakdown and there’s documentations of me drawing a church and saying, writing, “Start a church in the middle of Calabasas.”‘

He then joked about being the ~greatest artist of all time~, saying, ‘Jesus has won the victory. I told you about my arrogance and cockiness already. Now, the greatest artist that God has ever created is now working for him.’

Kim attended Kanye’s church service with him, and a source tells People that the couple is extremely focused on helping other people. ‘He and Kim are both focused about doing good and helping less privileged people. Especially with the holidays approaching, they try to do as much as they can. They also want their kids to know that many people are suffering and need help. The older kids will do some charity work this year as well.’

Here’s a clip from Kanye’s time onstage:
