What Chris Pratt Just Said About Being Christian in Hollywood Might Shock You

Published

on

Mega actor Chris Pratt, a man who has become just as famous for the boldness of proclaiming his faith openly in Hollywood, has stated that the entertainment industry is not anti-Christian or anti-religion.

During an interview with the Associated Press, Pratt also revealed the reason why he’s been so outspoken about his Christian faith in recent years.

This is a very interesting perspective.

“I think that there’s this narrative that exists out there that Hollywood is anti-Christian or anti-religious, but it’s just not the case,” the “Guardians of the Galaxy” actor explained. “They are kind of not anti-anything. They are kind of pro-whatever is authentic to you.

“I like that,” he added. “Because it’s authentic for me to be pro-Christian, pro-Jesus. That’s my thing. I like it. And I’ve never had anyone try to shame me to my face.”

Pratt added that even if others were to spew negativity about his faith behind his back, he wouldn’t care.

“If that’s the case, go ahead,” he challenged. “You can say whatever you want about me, to my face or behind my back. I’m not going to change.”

The actor also touched upon what motivates him to speak out on his faith in very public arenas, such as awards shows and during awards acceptance speeches.

“I don’t know that I am so much more motivated by where the world is or if it’s just what I’m feeling called to do right now,” he mused. “I think it’s a combination of both things. … That kind of a message, it might not be for everybody. But there is a group of people for whom that message is designed.”

Pratt went on to say that sharing his faith is one of the main things fulfilling his soul at the moment.

“Nothing fills my soul more than to think that maybe some kid watching that would say, ‘Hey, I’ve been thinking about that. I’ve been thinking about praying. Let me try that out,’” he explained. “That’s like the only way I feel like I can repay what has essentially been a giant gift in my life.”

While there might be some serious disagreement about whether or not there’s an anti-Christian bias in Hollywood — seems there’s plenty of evidence to support it being a real thing — the truth remains that we absolutely need more folks like Pratt in the entertainment industry willing to stand up and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ without fear.

Let’s hope he starts rubbing off on his colleagues.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Published

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
