It’s not a secret that Denzel Washington is a devout Christian and a man who’s popped many red pills along the way, and he really doesn’t care who knows it, either.
Denzel is a legend, and there’s nobody who will cancel him, and he knows it.
So, it’s great to hear him speak, because he doesn’t hold back.
Recently, Denzel was a featured speaker at “The Better Man Event” hosted by First Baptist Orlando in Florida. While there, Denzel revealed to his spiritual mentor, Pastor A.R. Bernard, the message he’s consistently been hearing from God and what God is telling him to do in this “changing world” that we’re in right now.
And I think Denzel’s message might be something that will touch your heart and your spirit as well.
Christian Post reported that Denzel said that “In every prayer, all I hear is: ‘Feed my sheep.’ That’s what God wants me to do,” the “Fences” actor shared.
Washington admitted that often his response is, “What’s that mean?” But, he added, “What I found out in the last couple of years is there are all kinds of sheep. So that’s why I talk to experienced shepherds to help guide me.”
“The world has changed. What is our role as a man? The John Wayne formula is not quite a fit right now. But strength, leadership, power, authority, guidance, patience are God’s gift to us as men. We have to cherish that, not abuse it,” the actor advised.
During the discussion, Washington wanted the audience to know that despite his redemptive characters on screen, he’s endured his own battles in choosing to live for God.
“What I played in the movies is not who I am, it’s what I played,” he stressed. “I’m not going to sit or stand on any pedestal and tell you about what I had in mind for you or your soul. Because the fact of the matter is, in the whole 40-year process, I was struggling for my own soul.
“It [the Bible] says in the last days we’ll become lovers of ourselves. The number one photograph now is a selfie. So we all want to lead. We’re willing to do anything — ladies and young men — to be influential. … Fame is a monster and we all have these ladders and battles, roads we have to walk in our given lives. Be you famous or whoever’s out there listening, we all have our individual challenges. It’s cliché [but] money, don’t make it better. It doesn’t. Fame just magnifies the problems and the opportunities,” Washington continued.
The New York native went on to share guidance for men who are looking for success.
“Stay on your knees. Watch me, but listen to God,” he added. “I hope that the words in my mouth and the meditation of my heart are pleasing in God’s sight, but I’m human. I’m just like you. What I have will not keep me on this Earth for one more day. Share what you know, inspire who you can, seek advice. If you want to talk to one someone, talk to the one that can do something about it. Constantly develop those habits.”
Wow, all great advice.
Denzel is a wonderful and powerful man of God, and he’s a humble guy, who “gets it.”
Denzel understands what the media is all about, and how destructive it is to chastise our law enforcement.
He’s definitely eaten some red pills and he knows exactly what’s going on in this country.
