New Bible Replaces 'God' with 'Kanye West'

A new Bible has replaced every mention of God with Kanye West. The Bible, called “The Book of Yeezus: A Bible for the Modern Day” features an etching of West on the cover and sells for $20 on Etsy

Creators of the book wrote on Etsy, "For this generation, Generation Y, Kanye West is not only its greatest spectacle, but in some senses, a spiritual figure.

"We are here to spread a doctrine. Well, a pseudo-doctrine. We ask you to use your pulpit for Good."

The publishers claim that that have received so many book orders that they have run out of stock. 

"Please understand that from your time of purchase, there will be an extra delay in delivery time as we wait for more books. Moses walked through the desert for 40 years. A few extra days ain't much,” they wrote in an update on the Etsy page. 

Christian Today reports that West identifies as a Christian. 

The singer previously said, "I'm Christian, and I'm hip-hop. So you mix those two things together, and you want to express yourself a certain type of way, and be bold. I wanna be like Christ. That's not to say I have a god complex. But it's like, if people pick a favourite Halloween character it's like, that's what I would pick! Don't people pick people that they look up to?"
