I’m inquisitive on God and Jesus himself, always trying to figure out and just become a better person. I’m actually saying I’m an actual saint, but this is me, this is who I am and people are scared of that and sometimes the industry was scared of that for a long time.

Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Faith’ Song Hints at His Strong Believe in Christianity
‘Faith’ song is another evidence of Lamar believing in Christianity. His Lyrics reflected how unbreakable his trust is in Jesus. These are the lyrics of his song Faith where he clearly said how he lost his faith on Jesus and again gained it back,
“I said alright, enthused that my Lord gave a listen
I opened my Bible in search to be a better Christian
And this from a person that never believed religion
But s*** my life is so f***** up, man I can’t get help but give in
I’m giving testimonies to strangers that I never met
I hopped on the pulpit and told them how I was truly based
Feel like I am free from all my sins when the service was over
Walked out the church , then got a call that my homie was murdered
And lost my faith again
…I’d rather not live like there isn’t a God than diet and find out there really is to think about it.”
