LOS ANGELES - Music mogul Simon Cowell has been dubbed a modern-day Jesus Christ by Evangelical magazine Re for his ability to talk tough.
The journal for the Assemblies of God church has even used a picture of the 51-year-old “The X-factor” judge on its cover, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“Jesus, the one we think of as being meek and mild, gentle and loving and full of compassion, had the ability to talk tough. For some his words were hard to swallow - just like Cowell’s - but he spoke truth and doesn’t that hurt sometimes?” an article published in the magazine reads.
“Simon Cowell takes, learns from them and grows in the process, and there are numerous stories in the Bible of people who do the same,” it further adds.
