Rock star Alice Cooper comes out as a follower of Jesus, according to his interview with Pastor Greg Laurie. Moreover, he wants to help teenagers in the name of Jesus.

In an interview with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician, Pastor Greg asked Alice about his faith-based organization in Phoenix called Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Center.

“We’re all Christian guys,” he said regarding the men and women who founded and run the non-profit org. “And Lord told us to do it. So we just obeyed. That’s all.”

Teen Drug Dealers

The rock star also shared how he got the idea for Solid Rock. In 1995 he witnessed two teens exchanging drugs.

“I watched a couple of 16-year-old kids do a drug deal on the corner and I went, ‘How does that kid not know he might be a great guitar player? Or that other kid might be a drummer?'” he said. “And it just struck me right then: Why don’t we open that, give them that alternative to go there?”

Alice Cooper, Not Ashamed Of Jesus

Pastor Greg posted some video clips of his interview with Alice Cooper.

“You’re not ashamed to say that you believe in Jesus Christ,” the pastor said.

And Alice said he was not.

“People talk about Alice being a rebel… There was never a rebel, more of a rebel than Jesus Christ. You want to talk about a rebel. He was the ultimate,” he replied.

He then went on to share his testimony saying Christ “rescued him from an addiction to cocaine.” Alice knew his life before was destined for hell.

“I knew that there had to come a point where either I accepted Christ and started living that life, or if I died in this [sin], I was in a lot of trouble,” he recounted. “And that’s what really motivated me.”

 

Furthermore, the singer also mentioned on giving a Bible to Marilyn Manson.

The Rock Star’s Life Story

Pastor Greg revealed in a tweet that he arranged the interview after the rock star visited his church. Pastor Greg serves as pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in California.

“It’s a little intimidating to preach in front of Alice Cooper,” he said in a video, prior to his interview.

“But here’s the thing a lot of people don’t know about him. He is a full follower of Jesus Christ and has been for many years. Alice was raised in a Christian home. In fact, his dad is a pastor. We all know that he went off track and got himself into a lot of trouble, in fact, almost destroyed his life through alcohol and drugs. But he made a recommitment to Christ. And he’s been walking with the Lord for many years now.”
