In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered incredibly risky to open up about one’s faith. That’s why it came as a big surprise this week when Hollywood A-lister Denzel Washington talked about how proud he is to be a Christian.
“I’m in the service business now, I’m fine. I’ve done well,” Washington said on the “TD Jakes Show.” “I don’t need any watches and all of that. So I’m here to serve God, here to serve my family.”
The Christian Post reported that Jakes expressed excitement that Washington knew who he was and had watched some of his sermons online.
“One of your sermons you talked about was the enemy is the inner me. And I’ve kept that,” Washington told Jakes.
This isn’t the first time Washington has publicly given thanks to God. Last year, the Academy Award winner spoke at the annual COGIC “We Care” Charity Banquet in St. Louis, Missouri about the importance of honoring God.
“Give thanks for blessings every day. Every day. Embrace gratitude. Encourage others. It is impossible to be grateful and hateful at the same time,” Washington said. “I pray that you put your slippers way under your bed at night, so that when you wake in the morning you have to start on your knees to find them. And while you’re down there, say ‘thank you.’”
