Alice Cooper, a legend we all love and admire.
Alice has been a devout Christian for many years. In a new interview with pastor Greg Laurie, he talked about his faith.
When asked about the moment when he accepted Jesus, he said:
“Sheryl [his Wife] had gone — she had gone to Chicago and said, ‘I can’t watch this,'”
“But the c*caine was speaking a lot louder than her. Finally, I looked in the mirror and it looked like my makeup, but it was blood coming down [from my eyes]. I think — I might have been hallucinating; I don’t know. I flushed the rock down the toilet. I woke up and I called her and I said, ‘It’s done.’ And she goes, ‘Right. You have to prove it.’
One of the deals was we start going to church. I knew who Jesus Christ was, and I was denying him. I knew that there had to either come to 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.
And that’s what really motivated me. I just got to a point of saying, ‘I’m tired of this life.’ And I know that this is right when the Lord opens your eyes and you suddenly realize who you are and who He is.”
Cooper talked about changing his name as well, saying:
“I went to my pastor and I said, ‘I think I’ve gotta quit being Alice Cooper now.’ He says, ‘Look where he put you. What if you’re Alice Cooper, but what if you’re now following Christ? And you’re a rock star, but you don’t live the rock-star life. Your lifestyle is now your testimony.'”
“People talk about Alice being a rebel — there was never more of a rebel than Jesus Christ,”
“You wanna talk about a rebel — he was the ultimate.”
