With the release of his latest album, "Yeezus," Kanye West has become a polarizing figure in the Christian community.

Earlier this week, Christian metal band Stryper defended West for crediting "God" on the tracklisting to his song "I Am a God." "When you believe in God, you want Him to be a part of everything you do, guiding you through the entire process," the band's frontman Michael Sweet told TMZ. "So, I understand what is meant."

Another rock band with Christian ties is less than pleased with West, however. Sonny Sandoval of the band P.O.D. also spoke to TMZ, giving some harsh criticism of the rapper. "Kanye West deceives many and will lead many people astray," Sandoval reportedly told TMZ, adding a recitation of Matthew 7:15-23 on the dangers of "false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves."

Controversy seems to work for West, as his six solo studio album is expected to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. The album is succeeding worldwide, as "Yeezus" already reached No. 1 in the UK and Australia.
