Christian rock band P.O.D. came out to warn listeners and fans of Kanye West's new album insisting the "I am God" singer will "lead people astray."
The bands front man, Sonny Sandoval known for hits such as "Alive" and "Youth of the Nation," feels that it is blasphemous of West to invoke the Almighty's title and claim, "I am a God" on his "Yeezus" album.
Sandoval gave a harsh and straightforward critique of the rapper as he warned potential listeners of the wolf in sheep's clothing that would take people away from god.
"Kanye West deceives many and will lead many people astray," Sandoval reportedly told TMZ, while also citing Matthew 7:15-23 on the dangers of "false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves."
Other entertainers such as gospel singer Kirk Franklin added that the microphone is a powerful tool that can be used both for good as well as selfish and nefarious reasons.
Franklin, 43, recently appeared on Shade 45's radio show "Sway In The Morning" where he was questioned about his thoughts on 35-year-old West's new album.
The gospel musician refused to use the radio show as an outlet to bash West and explained that speaking with a microphone was a powerful responsibility. Franklin said he would rather speak to West personally about the matter instead of addressing the issue of his album title on the public radio show.
"I think the microphone is a very powerful tool and you can use it to build people up or you can use it to kill people," Franklin said on the radio show. "And so if my job on earth is to always be a light in somebody's life, than I would want to use the tool to always communicate in a way that I'm going to uplift someone then I might not always do it through this tool which is the microphone. That may be heart to heart ... that may be a phone call or when I see somebody in person."
