There are at least two approaches in this thread: 1. I'll disbelieve his confession until proven otherwise. 2. I'll cautiously accept his confession until proven otherwise. One is pessimism, the other optimism. Perhaps it is a money-grab (although I suspect being a Christian is far less lucrative endeavor than he's had up to this point). However, it seems charity wouldn't assign these motives until proven. I know next to nothing about Kanye West and probably will never listen to his music but shouldn't we believe all things, hope all things? Can we at least be cautiously optimistic and not engage in speculative suspicion (e.g., "it seems like...he's probably...I hope it's not the case but...")? Perhaps next week will prove those suspicions correct, but I'll be cautiously optimistic for now and assume the best.
