Model and reality television star Kendall Jenner has recently declared that she is "100 percent" Christian although she was not raised as a devout believer.
Kendall Jenner, 19, revealed on her website that her family only goes to church on special holidays such as Christmas and Easter. Nevertheless, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star she said she is grateful that she was taught to believe in God, Christian Today relays.
The young reality star also said doing good deeds is the most important thing for her. This encompasses both being good inside and reciprocating goodness to the world.
"I was definitely taught — even by my sisters — to believe in God. Also, to believe that He has a plan," Jenner said in her online post. "It's most important to me, though, just to be good in your heart and do good in the world."
In addition, the young model said she was taught to believe that God has a plan for her. She admits, though, that she could be described more as spiritual rather than religious. Jenner also revealed that she prays every night.
Jenner is not the only millennial who admits to being more spiritual than religious. This pattern is now more commonly seen in American young people around her age group, The Huffington Post notes.
Kendall Jenner is the daughter of Kris Kardashian and former Olympian Bruce Jenner, who made headlines last year after coming out as a transgender woman. The latter is now known as Caitlyn Jenner, a transition that his own family found hard to accept at that time.
Bruce Jenner's transition to Caitlyn has shocked the world and has caused several Christians to speak out against his decision. Prominent evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham described the Jenner patriarch as a "very confused" person. The Christian pastor also said he should not be hailed as a hero for wanting to become a woman.
