Kim K & Church



Based on receiving just one comment on the "Why do you go to church?" post, either you all aren't going (like an ever growing number of Americans) or you don't feel like talking about it.

One über famous who does is none other than Kim Kardashian, who recently made headlines when she tweeted about getting in a little God time. Turns out, there's more to the story than that. From Faith Goes Pop:

"Mom Kris Jenner has talked a lot about being a Christian and taking her kids to church. Talk show host Kathie Lee Gifford, once of Kris’ best friends and the godmother of Kylie and Kendall Jenner, says that the two of them often talk about their faith. Whenever Kim needs an image boost or some good PR, she makes sure to get photographed coming out of a church (including that one time with LeAnn Rimes). The church in question is Life Change Community Church in Agoura Hills, CA. The church has two founders – a public one (Pastor Brad Johnson, who leads services there) and a private-ish one (Kris Jenner). Kris often shouts out Brad on social media, including linking to the Amazon page for his book on her blog for Celebuzz.com.

Lately, Kim is in a new relationship with Kanye West and is trying to give herself an image makeover. On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kanye threw out all of Kim’s clothes and bought her new ones that better reflected the style he likes. But those clothes didn’t go into the trash or Goodwill donation box. Instead, they’re being auctioned off on eBay, with a portion of proceeds going to a charity. And that charity is none other than Life Change Community Church. In other words, it’s pretty likely that Kris Jenner – and, by extension, Kim Kardashian – will be “donating” that money right back into their own coffers. I wonder what Pastor Brad thinks about the Prosperity Gospel."

I'm not sure if anyone in Hollywood is capable of being feverous towards the gospels while choosing to remain a part of the scene. If so, I hadn't witnessed anyone, nor am I sure the spotlight would continue to cater to transformation of the soul. At least not outside of projecting a new "image" for whatever reasons.

That said, Kim Kardaahian does remind me of someone (kinda like former Prince protégée Denise Matthews of Vanity 6 fame) who completely turned away from the darkness and focused more upon the light.

Actually Prince himself is another. Why? Well, perhaps there's an emptiness that begs for fulfillment somewhere along the way.

Thoughts?
