Liberals just can’t stand Christian celebrities.
Chris Pratt is one of them.
He’s bold and fearless – his faith is not just a hobby but a lifestyle.
In the lengthy, comprehensive Vanity Fair interview, Pratt shares the moment he decided to change his life for the better (h/t to Kira Davis).
Here’s Chris Pratt…
“I was sitting outside a grocery store—we’d convinced someone to go in and buy us beer. This is Maui. And a guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved. He asked what I was doing that night, and I was honest. I said, ‘My friend’s inside buying me alcohol.’ ‘You going to go party?’ he asked. ‘Yeah.’ ‘Drink and do drugs? Meet girls, fornication?’ I was like, ‘I hope so.’ I was charmed by this guy, don’t know why. He was an Asian dude, maybe Hawaiian, in his 40s. It should’ve made me nervous but didn’t. I said, ‘Why are you asking?’ He said, ‘Jesus told me to talk to you . . .’ At that moment I was like, I think I have to go with this guy. He took me to church. Over the next few days I surprised my friends by declaring that I was going to change my life.”
Now here’s Vanity Fair explaining why a man might be a Christian.
O.K. Let’s stop for a moment. Because this is strange and so distant from what we expect of a movie star, especially of the clever, slapdash, wise-guy variety. But everyone needs a story to make sense of their life. Even the most successful. The extreme demands explanation. For Pratt, success, so extreme it scared him, is explained by metaphysical intervention. Which caused him to take control. In that moment, he yielded. His path has been clear ever since.
The interviewer is right about one thing: it is strange to hear a popular movie star talk about Jesus in a non-mocking tone. (H/T: Louder with Crowder)
What Vanity Fair is doing is explaining to their likely liberal, agnostic audience that some people, even Hollywood starlets who won the DNA lottery, who’ve worked hard to become successful, believe in something greater than themselves. Hey, imagine the shock if all you read about are Hollywood heathens who donate millions to “religions” to go up in levels.
Anyway, yes Vanity Fair readers, some people still believe in God. One of them is the much loved Chris Pratt. Who we hope keeps on keeping on.
