OJ Simpson Dead After Battle With Cancer, Once Said He ‘Could Have Been a Better Christian’

During a parole hearing, Simpson said, “I realize in my nine years here that I was a good guy on the street. I was always a good guy, but I could have been a better Christian.”

In 2013, Simpson’s manger, Norman Pardo, told The Enquirer that the former NFL running back found God while he was in prison.

“O.J. is very religious now, and he’s been counseling other inmates with Bible studies for months,” Pardo said. “When I talk to him on the phone, all he wants to discuss is religion. He’s obsessed!”

At the time, Pardo shared that Simpson was planning to become a televangelist after getting out of prison. That vision never came to pass.
