Faith Journey of Billy Joe Armstrong
Green Day is a popular punk rock band that is somewhat Christian. The lead Singer was grew up a Christian and attended church every Sunday, when the lead singer Billy was only 10 years old his father Andy Armstrong died of cancer, as his father lay in his death bed Billy prayed to God begging for him not to take his father away from him (as they were both very close with each other) but God knew it was his father’s time to join him in Heaven. When he accepted the fact that his father died he blamed it on God and strayed away from him for a while but then as he grew older he realized it was not Gods fault it was just his father’s time. Faith in Action
When Billy turned 16 he got involved with alcohol and drugs, he did not complete high school and dropped out senior year. Mike Dirnt is the bassist for Green Day and had been friends with Billy since childhood, they used to be called Sweet Children until their drummer quit on them, and that is when they met Tre Cool the current drummer for Green day and changed their name to Green Day. When Billy started Green Day with these guys he strayed to the path of God again. He made very poor choices in his life. Billy is a Christian and has done a few songs about God, one of them being The Saints are Coming performed live with the famous band U2. Billy Joe Armstrong has always believed in God and always will.
