The Jesus Is King rapper thanked God throughout his sermon for helping him during a rather difficult time in his life. “A lot of times people say, ‘Thank you Ye for Sunday Service.’ I’m saying, ‘Thank God. This thing saved my life.’ This thing was an alternative to opioids. This thing was an alternative to pornography,” he said.

As OK! readers might recall, Kanye admitted that he suffered with porn addiction during a conversation with Zane Lowe in October 2019.

“Playboy was my gateway into full-blown pornography addiction. My dad had a Playboy left out at age 5 and it’s effected almost every choice I made for the rest of my life, from age 5, to now having to kick the habit. And it just presents itself in the open, like it’s okay. And I standup and say, you know, it’s not okay," he confessed.

At one point during his sermon, Kanye seemingly addressed rapper T.I.’s statement in which he admitted that he takes his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure that she is still a virgin.

“They tried to play T.I., but he’s talking about something that’s God-approved,” the Chicago native said.

Since creating his Sunday Service, Kanye has found a new sense of peace. His wife, Kim Kardashian, detailed the change during her appearance on The View back in September 2019. "Kanye started Sunday Service, I think, just to heal himself," the 39-year-old revealed. "It was a real personal thing, and it was just friends and family, and he has had an amazing evolution of being born again and being saved by Christ. People always ask, 'Well, what are you worshiping?' Or, 'What is this?' It is a Christian service, like a musical ministry. They talk about Jesus and God."
