This top Hollywood actor just delivered a powerful Christian message for all to hear

Secularists have been at war with religion in America for ages.

Religion has largely been stamped out of institutions controlled by the Left, particularly Hollywood.

But this top Hollywood actor just delivered a powerful Christian message for all to hear.

Denzel Washington is one of the best and most recognizable actors of his generation.

He’s starred in many iconic roles, and along the way he’s maintained a faith in God.

That is quite rare in an industry that’s often hostile toward religion.

During a recent interview, Washington recounted a profound experience in his life when he attended a church service in the 1980s.

He said, “I was filled with the Holy Ghost and it scared me. I said, ‘Wait a minute, I didn’t want to go this deep, I want to party . . .’ I went to church with Robert Townsend and when it came time to come down to the altar I said, ‘You know this time, I’m just going to go down there and give it up and see what happens.’ I went in the prayer room and gave it up and let go and experienced something I’ve never experienced in my life.”

Christians in Hollywood often hide their religiosity so as not to lose work, while others end up on the defensive when speaking about their faith.

Chris Pratt had to defend his church against smears from actress Ellen Page, who is gay, that the church does not allow LGBT people through its doors.

While other actors take every opportunity to cater to the left-wing mob, Washington takes an old school approach and is cagier about his politics.

After the 2016 election, a reporter impolitely asked Washington who he supported, and fired back, “None of your business.”

During a 2004 interview with Katie Couric, Washington rejected the idea that he was part of the Hollywood club.

He said, “I don’t know what Hollywood folks are . . . Hollywood is a town that has some stars on the sidewalk. I don’t know anybody from there . . . I’m not a Hollywood folk. I don’t know who they are . . . I’m a human being. My job is acting.”

Washington has even taken shots at Fake News Media bias.

During a red carpet interview he said, “If you don’t read the newspaper, you’re uninformed. If you do read it, you’re misinformed.”

Washington doesn’t broadcast his politics, but his belief in God and personal responsibility puts him at odds with the super “woke” set within the industry.

While on a press junket for the film Roman J. Israel, Esq., which deals with the criminal justice system, Washington said of the incarceration problem, “I think it’s more important to make headway in our own house. By the time the system comes into play, the damage is done. They’re not locking up seven-year-olds . . . It starts in the house. It starts in the home.”

Statements like that certainly won’t sit will with the Marxist cultural revolutionaries who want to burn down the entire society.

Will Denzel Washington be “canceled” if he continues to contradict the “woke” orthodoxy?

  2. If man, not God, is the measure of all things then let man fix this pandemic right now. If anyone has ever read the Old Testament they would have read about the one and only true God that is jealous and does not want His creation worshipping other idols. Although God’s vengeance was revealed in many ways He was willing to give chances and forgive many times. How many idols do we have? Everyone does what seems right in their own mind. Who is man that he should ignore his creator? Are we experiencing God’s vengeance now?

  3. Denzel has made a statement that is undeniable. Thank you sir. Your faith in God has given me faith in you. I hope you use your platform for all of our benefit.

  4. THE ONLY LGBT ” WE THE PEOPLE ” NEED IN AMERICA

    LGBT = LIBERTY, GOD, BIBLE, TRUMP

  5. Denzel will never be cancelled by the folks who count! Hollywood is full of morally corrupt people and if they want to live that way, let them but they will never be able to infect a truly brave heart and soul! Way to go, Denzel! BLM should take you as an example of a real human being!!

  6. Denzel is probably my favorite actor and if all black people were like this fine man; there would be very few racial problems in our nation today. MY HAT IS OFF TO THIS MAN AND WITH MY GREATEST RESPECT !!!!

  7. Mr Washington, you are an inspiration to others. You are letting your light shine. Thank you for your honest and heartfelt words and feelings.

  8. A person I admire and keeps his faith and beliefs under pressure from the press. We all have to remember-thru the waiting, the searching, the hurting and the healing -Jesus is there for us. Denzel is good example for us to take note of and follow.

  9. YES THANK YOU I M PROUD TO BE A FAN I WISH MORE HOLLOW WEIRD WOULD BE BETTER AMERICAN NO MORE GOD WILL WIN ALSO MY FRIEND HE HAS GIVEN US A LOT AND TO WALK THE GOOD LIFE OR GO TO HELL YOU CHOOSE BE IN THE RIGHT PLACE

  10. It is my prayer Denzel Washington continues to be guided by wisdom from God when telling media it is none of their business to divulge who he has or will vote for. This is a fundamental right guaranteed to all Americans and if he, I, anyone wish to keep this information private it is just that private. One of the biggest problems today in this country is the media either ignoring stories of hope, kindness, generosity and focusing only on negatives or partial truths which is lying through omission. This is one reason I no longer watch or listen to any news. I do however pray for enlightenment to come to every citizen in this country from Holy Spirit.

  11. Hallelujah! One of the very few honest and smart people in Hollyweird. I will continue to be a fan of Denzel’s for the remainder of my long life. He is definitely a class act especially when compared with the many, many idiots from there who want to give me advice on politics, religion, etc. The looney bin including Goldberg, Cher, Meathead, Behar, Streisand and on and on can all go to CHina for some reeducation.

  12. Denzel is one of my fave actors. So pleased to see his enlightened comments. Praise God. We need more actors like him. I pray for blessings for him and his family.

  13. Good for Denzel Washington for standing up for his beliefs and not bending to all the politics and fake news. God Bless you Sir, Our President and Our Country. Trump 2020 so he can finish getting rid of all the Corrupted Democrats. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏻🙏🏻✝️✝️

  14. Blessings on you Denzel Washington. You are a fine example of a defender of God, faith and Jesus Christ our Lord. Thank you for using your platform for good. We all need good right now. You are a man we admire and appreciate especially at these times. A man of integrity. Keep up the good fight. Amen.

  15. Thank you Mr. Washington for sharing your faith & thoughts❣️ We need folks like you to not be ashamed of your faith & God…He will certainly know you always🙏🏼 You’re a good brother in Christ! I feel your job won’t suffer, you’re an excellent actor. Stay the course.💙💛🤍

  16. Those that continue to bleep God out had better be ready when the sun don’t shine [ literally ]. Its in the bible, find it.

  17. Fake power and the love for money and drug parties is all these Hollywood sinners have..they fall for the devils temptations..Root of all Evil..

  18. Denzel is as much a hero to me as soldiers going into battle. He is risking his liveliehood, and his life, by standing for God in the middle of Sodom and Gomorrah.

  19. With the understanding that not all of Mr. Washington’s movies are fare for really young children, I have yet to see anything he hs been in that would be inappropriate for early teens up. The same goes for Will Smith. The rational here is that with the early teens and up properly raised children are capable of understanding the differences of real vs fiction, right vs wrong and truth vs untruth.

  20. The church allows LGBT people though their doors. In fact, it allows all sinners. But to be part of the family of God (a Christian), you must change (repent) and follow the ways of Jesus and the Word of God.

  21. Denzel God has always said you speak my words and you will be a light to others You are that light and I know God will Bless you for saying what you think is right.

  22. Very happy there is a Christian major star in Hollywood. We need many more men of faith like Denzel Washington!!

  23. Christianity is treated as the Plague and the Scientology Cult gets a pass. Denzel Washington is an actor, director, and producer with a net worth of $250 million. So is this what Systemic Racism Looks Like? So he went to school, got a job and made a life for Himself and now he is a Millionaire. So where do I go to get some of this type of Racism?

  24. Washington has more common sense and integrity in his little finger than his colleagues have in all of their distorted systems.

  25. Denzel Washington first of all is a man who loves and does his best to abide by and serve his DEVINE CREATOR and as with many OF GODS Obedient servants Denzel has been blessed with many gifts and among these gifts is his tremendous talent for acting and blessed with the ability to know who he is and play second fiddle to no one but GOD.Thank you Denzel Washington for your faith talent and honesty. JGB

  26. Thank you Mr. Washington! Your words are truth. And your circumspection is a welcome breath of fresh air. God bless & keep you.

  27. Denzel Washington Is A Man Of Principles And Keeps His Business To Himself. He Is A Well Educated Man First And A Actor Second. If Only Many Of The Black People Would Think And Act Like Him This World Would Be Better Off. I Agree With Him That Every Black Person Has Control Of There Future And What They Make It Is Entirely Up To Them.

  28. “Secularists have been at war with religion in America for ages.” Not true! We’re merely opposed to religious hypocrisy.

    I Corinthians 6:9-11 (KJV) says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you.” Paul condemns fornication alongside homosexuality in the very same verse. Paul’s words in I Corinthians 6:9-11 indicate that coming to Christ means giving up fornication, too. I’ll take the conservative Christian opposition to LGBT rights seriously when they condemn fornication alongside homosexuality just as strongly.

    A hundred years ago, ALL Christian churches opposed birth control. Sexual morality for Christians is detailed in I Corinthians 7. If Christians actually followed the biblical commands against fornication and sexual immorality in general (Romans 1:24-27; I Corinthians 5:1,9-12, 6:9-10,15,18; I Thessalonians 4:3-5; ); as well as the commands that women cover their heads while worshiping (I Corinthians 11:5-14); Christian women are to dress modestly and prudently, and are not to be adorned with braided hair, gold or pearls or expensive clothes (I Timothy 2:9); Christian women are to keep silent in the churches and Christian women are not allowed to teach nor hold authority over men (I Corinthians 14:34-35; I Timothy 2:11-15)… Christianity would resemble Islam! As recently as 2007, the George W. Bush administration was still promoting abstinence-only sex education!

    Again, we secular citizens merely oppose religious hypocrisy, not religion.

  29. I Find It VERY Difficult For ANY Holly-NO-MORAL-COMPASS-Wood Being Religious !!! Simply Put…MONEY IS THEIR GOD !!! and EVERYONE STRIVES and COVETS FOR THEIR GRAVEN IMAGES…THEY ALL WANT TO PLACED ON A PEDISTAL AND BE WORSHIPED BY THEIR MINIONS !!!! 99% COMMIT FORNIVACATION OR ADULTRY ( Most and Have Played Some Sort of Sexual Role )…THEY ALL HAVE EXPENSIVE MATERALISTIC THINGS…MOST ALL THINK THEIR ABOVE THE LAW…The LIST Just Goes On n On n On…

  30. My problem *isn’t* with “Christians” unable to follow Jesus or Paul, but rather with the hypocrisy of glibly saying, “I believe” while conveniently ignoring the rest of what their religion dictates when it suits them.

  31. Denzel is a man of conviction. The color of skin is irrevelent . Real Americans are those who identify as Americans due to their heart, mind and soul. His heritage is African, mine is European, Irish, and accordioning to word of mouth Native. My wife was a full blood Apache, with which we raised four children, resulting in 11 grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. I do not seek to deny anyone their god given rights – yet, when they seek to deny mine, the very things I put my life on the line to defend, as a front line combat solder, I am going to aggressively seek their demise. With lethal consequences for them. Make no misstate.
