The liberal atheists and secularists who inhabit the media, academia and the craptastic world of entertainment loathe everything Christian or conservative, including and especially when folks have the temerity to act upon or speak of their faith.
Christian pride is to be mocked as backward or racist. Every day.
Denzel Washington had something to say about that and yes sir, I like it:
They are fuming that two-time Oscar winner has publicly admitted to being a devotee to the Christian religion. OMG – what to do? He’s black, we can’t criticize him, call him names, or a bigot. What a puzzle..
“I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word,” Denzel said very proudly.
But where did he acquire this thirst for biblical knowledge? He got it from his father, a preacher who instilled in him the importance of being a “spiritual man and a gentleman.” Everything changed when he hit his 20s and experienced “a personal encounter with God in the same church he still attends to this day,” said Washington.
He had, for a lack of a better way of describing it, been overcome with the Holy Spirit, he said. And it left an indelible impression upon him.
Denzel’s Christian faith now runs so deep that he sometimes considers following in his father’s steps and becoming a preacher.
Whether or not the Christian actor will ever actually become a preacher remains to be seen. However, his lack of an official title certainly isn’t stopping him from preaching the good word:
“Put your slippers way under your bed so when you get up in the morning, you have to get on your knees to find them. And while you’re down there, start your day with prayer. Ask for wisdom. Ask for understanding. Don’t aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference.”
I say go for it buddy..
We need you.
