Kanye is asking if we simply believe in God, without living the necessary lifestyle, will that belief be able to carry us to Heaven? In he line before, he says, “We believe in God but do God believe in us?” This leads one to believe that he was asking a very complex question. We believe and faith in God, but we are not always living by what he teaches. That being said, does He (God) believe in us and our ways of life? Even though we may be of strong belief and faith, will that be enough to get us to Heaven? In the next line he says, “We forget that we the chosen.” This is a biblical reference. Kanye is challenging the lifestyles of people who claim to have a faith and belief in God but do not live accordingly. Furthermore, Kanye’s contributions to the song generate a certain recurring theme. I think it discusses specific struggles of life and how those different things can have an impact on our belief and our actions. And in these three lines Kanye may be asking another complex question: If we have belief in God, a real faith, will He see that as enough? Or will He judge us because we didn’t live up to “standards” because of our conditions in life? Does He see our pain?
