Miley Cyrus took an Instagram photo on Friday that expressed her views on Jesus; now this picture is causing a holy war with her fans on social media. The young pop star has been the center of tabloid obsessiveness for some time now. Her recent post about Jesus is certainly not slowing down her grasp for media attention in 2014. Her Jesus message invoked a lot of responses with some praising the singer for her views, and others standing against her message. “Man You used to be My idol but you changed, And i hope you know what your saying,” one follower wrote. “miley, i love you so much for sharing this,” said another. Taking to Facebook someone commented, “do not talk about things you do not understand!” Another added, “all of the bible is God’s word.” Cyrus’ infamous VMA performance was one of the most talked about occurrences of 2013, and Barbara Walters’ named the 21-year-old one of the most fascinating people in the world. Her video for “Wrecking Ball,” which showed the singer with no clothes on, broke Vevo’s 24-hour record at 19.3 million views on YouTube, and continued to soar past 100 million views just a week after its release.
These comments on Jesus come in contrast to a former “Anti-Christ” comment she made in 2012. She tweeted: “You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all the things that matter for evolution) weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you can live.” She later deleted the tweet that stirred up much strife among her fans. Cyrus regularly attended church as a young girl and even took to wearing a purity ring as a sign of her Christian faith. In 2008, Cyrus, an already very wealthy 15-year-old told Fox News in an interview that it is her faith that keeps her “grounded” and admitted her desire to follow Jesus. “Live like Christ and He’ll live in you, and that’s what I want to do,” she said. Just a few years after her father Billy Ray Cyrus, popular country music singer, said in an interview with GQ Magazine that he regretted having her in the “Hannah Montana Show” and also admitted to having made serious errors as parent. Billy Ray confessed that the entire family got baptized and were cautious of the temptations within the entertainment industry before to going to Los Angeles. “Somewhere along this journey, both mine and Miley’s faith has been shaken,” he said. “That saddens me the most.” He acknowledged there is “no doubt” that his family is being ruined by Satan.
