VIDEO: INTERVIEW WITH ALICE COOPER ON CHRISTIAN FAITH
Harvest Christian Fellowship pastor and Christian author Greg Laurie recently discussed music, Jesus, and rock-n-roll with Alice Cooper.
“Had an amazing time today with my friend, Alice Cooper in Arizona,” Laurie posted on Facebook. “Alice talks about the emptiness of the life of the pursuit of fame and how he found everything he is looking for in his relationship with Christ…
“He’s not preached enough,” Cooper told Laurie. “[He’s] the most written about character of all time in history, and yet people go out of their way to not believe in Him.”
When Laurie questioned why Cooper thought that was the case, the 73-year-old noted that people are unwilling to surrender their lives to Christ.
“I think it’s because they don’t want to give up their godship,” Cooper said…
Cooper then quoted John 14:6 and said that he, his wife, and his children live their lives trusting that Jesus is the only way to salvation.
Movieguide® previously reported:
Cooper told Harvest Crusade’s Greg Laurie that his wife only took him back on the condition that he go to church.
“I knew that there had to either come a point where I either accepted Christ and started living that life, or, if I died in this, I was in a lot of trouble,” Cooper said….When the Lord opens your eyes and you…realize…who He is, oh, it’s a whole different world.”…
“I never went to AA,” he said. “Everyone said, ‘Oh you have such great willpower,’ I said, ‘No, God has great willpower….I had such strong prayer for me. Even the doctor said, ‘This is an absolute miracle.’ I said, ‘Why?’ They said, ‘Well, you should be…sneaking drugs.’ I said, ‘I have absolutely no desire for that at all.’”
It’s all because he found ultimate satisfaction in Jesus…
Share a prayer for others in the industry to give their lives to Jesus!
