Fuck it! I'm a God...

So first ignore the fact that Kanye is Kanye and let's play devil's advocate here. Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? What makes him think he could say such blasphemy? But what is blasphemy technically? Well, blasphemy is the act or offense of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk. The key word here is OFFENSE. Who is offended by what is said about God? The people? Or God? Or better yet did God tell "the people" he (or she) was offended? And are they now God's messenger? My bet is people were offended by Kanye's comment. His "blasphemous" comment (based on if you were offended or not... but if you were not offended is the comment still blasphemous?) made people uncomfortable. So was he saying anything that took away from the power of the God the people know? Or was the ideal and/ or audacity of Kanye, speaking of himself in such a high reference as their God, hurtful to them? Given Kanye blatantly made the comment without explaining himself, increased his popularity of being misunderstood. And brings us back to the focus at hand, Why would Kanye say, "I am a god."?
Again, back to the original question at hand, Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? Maybe because Yeezus, oh I mean Jesus, told him he was a God. So the question is no longer, Why would Kanye say, "I am a God."? The question is, Why don't "the people" know this?
