The Hollywood actor Denzel Washington is one of the most famous Christians in the film industry
For Denzel Washington, who seems to have everything – a loving family and a stellar career, earthly joys are not enough. A famous Christian, he wants to give his life in the service of God from now on, wrote theblaze.com, quoted by life.dir.bg.
Last year, the New York Times named him the artist the 21st Century. The world-famous media circulated its ranking of the 25 best actors of the century with the stipulation that it is completely subjective and even scandalous due to “certain omissions”. New York Times film critics have called Washington “a screen titan who is equally strong as a Shakespearean character, as a villain, and as an ordinary boy.”
The probationary times in which we live, in biblical language, of disease, racial unrest, military conflict, famine, and more, find Denzel Washington in prayer mode. That’s what those close to him say. He shares what he prays for, what God answers to him, and what all people who want to find true peace and succeed must do.
The actor attended a Christian conference for men a week ago entitled “The better man event” in Orlando, Florida and spoke to tens of thousands of participants.
Before Pastor AR Bernard of the Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, Denzel said he would dedicate his life from now on to the service of others. And that is because God clearly told him: “Feed my sheep” – a replica of Jesus Christ to the Apostle Peter, from the New Testament.
“I am now almost 67 years old. I recently buried my mother and promised her, and God, not just to do good according to the canon, but to honor my mother and father through the way I live in the last days of my life in this land. I am here to serve, help and supply needs, “the Hollywood ace told the audience. He says that lately, when he prayed, God clearly showed him what he wanted from him as an actor, successful in the profession, and these were the words of Christ.
“I hear this in every prayer I have. This is what God wants me to do,” he said.
He consulted with Christian leaders about what exactly this means today, and they explained to him that there are all kinds of “sheep” as a metaphor for the message, and that men need to be aware of their role in society. “What is it? Strength, leadership, endurance, authority, leadership, patience,” he told the assembled gentlemen.
Washington, which is known for its huge number of successes in the entertainment industry, gives some advice on how to achieve this. “The Bible says that in the last days we will become selfish and what is the number one photograph today ?! Selfie! We want to be leaders. We would do anything, both women and men, to be influencers. But fame is a monster and we all have stairs to climb, battles to overcome, paths to take in the lives we are given. It’s a cliché, but we all have challenges and money doesn’t help at all. Fame only increases, like a magnifying glass, problems, on the one hand, and opportunities, on the other. If you’re looking for success, get on your knees. Humble, and in prayer, “says Washington.
“I hope that the words of my mouth and the thoughts of my heart are pleasing to God, but I am just a man. Like you. What I have achieved will not provide me with another day on this earth. Therefore – share your knowledge, inspire who you can, seek advice. If you want to talk to someone, talk to someone who can do something about it. Constantly develop these habits, “he added to the conference audience.
Denzel is more likely to become a pastor, in the sense of a missionary who preaches the word of God, than a Christian leader. A film starring Macbeth is expected to be released later this year, and Lady Macbeth is Francis McDormand. Regarding the profession – leaves his deputy. John David Washington, the eldest of four children he has with his wife Pauletta, is taking over.
John was born on July 28, 1984 and already has a lot of movies behind him.
In May this year, it was announced that he would star in the upcoming film “True Love” by director and writer Gareth Edwards.
The English thriller “Beckett”, directed by Ferdinando Chito Filomarino, was released this summer. There, John is an American tourist on holiday in Greece, who becomes the target of persecutors after an accident and has to go to the embassy to clear his name. Alicia Vikander also participates in the production.
