Sheryl was once obsessed with the addiction of his husband and so filed for divorce. Cooper acknowledged his mistakes and so made it possible for reconciliation. This led to his new lifestyle in God.
Is Alice Cooper A Christian?
Today, Alice Cooper is a proud Christian after getting lost in the world. His religion is Christianity. Cooper was born a Christian and so lived a good religious life by being active at church from the ages of 12 to 13.
After being a great man and a legend in the rock music industry he became addicted to alcohol which nearly killed him. In the 80s he succeeded in overcoming his addiction through the help of his wife Sheryl.
After getting lost in the world, he found his faith in Jesus again. Initially, he was not open about his faith. In an interview with BBC Radio 2 in September 2007 he said he was thankful that God took away his weakness (alcoholism) with uncertain belief:
“I mean if He [God] can part the Red Sea and create the universe, He can certainly take alcoholism away from somebody.”
Following his recovery from alcohol addiction, he has done a lot of interviews in which he boldly declares his faith in God.
Cooper is now, a born-again Christian who doesn’t feel ashamed of calling Jesus Christ his savior. In several other interviews, he has shared his Christian faith.
When asked if he was ashamed to say he believed in Jesus Christ, the rock star replied with a confident “no.”
In a 2018 interview with New York Daily News, he said:
“My wife and I are both Christian. My father was a pastor, my grandfather was an evangelist. I grew up in the church, went as far away as I could from it — almost died — and then came back to the church.”
“…I knew who Jesus Christ was, and I was denying him. 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. 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.”
What Church Does Alice Cooper Attend?
He worships at the Evangelical Covenant Church. Although not perfect, he is doing his best to be a good Christian.
The rock star might not give you a very good first impression when you see him or his photos. Because he went too deep into the world with crazy illusions, horror imagery and crafts. Thank God is back to Jesus Christ.
