“It’s a balance. I don’t wanna jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith,” Mark said. “That’s an even bigger sin. You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but, you know, I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people.”
Mark was asked what his faith means to him.
“It’s everything, it’s afforded me so many things,” he said. “God didn’t come to save the saints, he came to save the sinners. We’ve all had issues in our lives and we want to be better versions of ourselves, and through focusing [on] my faith, it’s allowed me to do that.”
