In the video, Ye’ states “We do plays all the time, people play Jesus, you know what’s awesome about Christianity, people are allowed to play God.” He continues to say “We’re allowed to draw images of him, we’re allowed to do movies of him.

      On top of that 1 of the 10 commandments is tho shell not bare any images of God. Look up the ten commandments. That is wrong. There should be no pics of God because that cause controversy and controversy cause problems. That’s in any religion. and your not suppose to play God or take is name in vain. I study this don’t mean i live it wish i did but its not as easy as it look. ye playing with God and that’s not cool. READ THE BIBLE.
