Elon Musk reveals desire to be 'saved by Jesus' as he praises religion in resurfaced interview

ELON Musk is known for being outspoken but he doesn't often provide his views on religion.

In an interview with Christian satire site Babylon Bee, the billionaire revealed his stance on Christianity and a desire for salvation.

The clip was resurfaced recently by CNS News after causing a stir in December.

The billionaire expresses several views in the interview, including how he wouldn't say no to being saved by Jesus.

Before Musk's interview with Babylon Bee, the SpaceX CEO had said he wasn't religious.

He's often described as an atheist, which makes the late 2021 interview even more interesting.
