The 7 Christian Celebrities Who Are Bold In Faith Despite Being Hollywood Stars

In an industry of sin and temptations, there are still Christian celebrities who stands firm in their faith in Christ and boldly bring their faith out in public. They are glorifying God in Hollywood and proved to everyone that fame can’t destroy their faith.

Here are some of the celebrities who are a light on a hill.

1. Tyler Perry

“I’m not afraid to have a character say, ‘I am a Christian,’ or ‘I believe in God,’ because I think they represent real people on this earth.”

Tyler Perry made his way onto the Hollywood scene in 2005 with “Diary of A Mad Black Woman.” Since then, he has conquered the big screens and small screens with his films “Madea’s Family Reunion” and “Daddy’s Little Girls.” His faith in God has always been a part of his great success.

2. Denzel Washington

“You have to use your gifts – faith without works is nothing.”

The two-time Academy winner boldly said that his spiritual belief is important in every aspect of his life. He believed that he was blessed to be in Hollywood because it was his platform to share his Christian faith.

3. Ralph Winter

“I think we have to come up with an example or model or a paradigm of the kinds of movies that we, as Christians, will be proud of that will begin to infect the rest of the culture.”

Ralph Winter has been producing movies for almost three decades. Some of the movies he has produced are, “Star Trek: The Search for Spock,” “X-Men,” “Fantastic 4,” and the “The Visitation.” But behind this Hollywood producer is a man who has a deep faith in God.

4. Kristin Chenoweth

“I’m an actress and a singer and I’m also a Christian. We’re not all crazy right-wingers. I just want to be like Jesus, forgiving and loving and nonjudgmental, accepting of everyone even if they don’t agree.”

Kristin Chenoweth’s career has ranged from Broadway to TV to movies. Her talent and passion for music were discovered during her early age. She has released an album of Christian inspirational music called “As I Am” and has been speaking at Women of Faith conferences.

5. Carrie Underwood

“I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith (or) any of that, and I won’t be the last. And it won’t be the last for me, either. If you don’t like it, change the channel.”

Carrie Underwood rose to fame after winning “American Idol” but despite her success, she remained steadfast in her faith. You could clearly hear her faith in her songs. She has proven that fame can’t destroy her faith.

6. Tori Kelly

“You kind of get to a point where your faith really becomes your own and it’s not about what your parents say or what they believe, but it’s really like, ‘No, this is real to me.’ I’ve really experienced the presence of God and I know that this is my own faith.”

In an industry full of temptations and sin, Singer Tori Kelly kept her faith grounded in Jesus Christ. She is trying to be the light on a hill in the place full of darkness. But being a Christian in this career is a constant spiritual battle for her.

7. Kathie Lee Gifford

“The story of my life is not the story of my faithfulness to God but of his faithfulness to me.”

Kathie’s family was torn from being a Christian and a Jewish during her childhood. But that changed one night when her family was watching a televised crusade of Billy Graham and that night they came to Christ and their lives were changed forever. She believes that God kept her in His path and eventually led her to Hollywood.

And this is what Venus revealed in an interview last week. She said that she has put certain limitations on her clothing when she became closer to God. Venus said that it wasn’t a matter of reservation.

“It’s not because I just want limitations. It’s because I’m getting mature and I’m having convictions. Anything that I feel not biblical, it’s conviction.”

When she was asked about her love life, she said that she doesn’t have any suitors as of the moment.

“I’m happy and in love every day. I don’t have a suitor, I’m just really content with my relationship with the Lord every day. Why don’t I have any suitor? I’m just waiting, I am not pursuing.”

Man Tries To Numb His Depression With Alcohol And Pills Until He Met A Friend Who Told Him About Jesus

When Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington committed suicide, the phrase “depression doesn’t have a face” spread across social media. It surfaced after Bennington’s wife released a video clip of her husband in such a good mood 36 hours before his death. Without a doubt, depression is a difficult condition to spot on and Bennington is not the only one who tried to hide behind a smile.

Al Bettis also struggled the same thing. With no father and his mother being a heroin addict, Al’s childhood was a challenging one. He could not find the love, care and attention that he needed as early as 6 years old. When his grandparents got custody of him, he thought that was the solution to his problems.

He was happy with his relationship with his grandfather until he died. That was the triggering moment for his depression. Things became worse after his grandmother died 5 years later. Feeling so much pain and hurt, Al tried to hide his struggle with pills and alcohol. But it wasn’t long until he met a friend who helped him find the missing piece in his life.

Watch Al’s testimony below and may you be inspired to overcome depression!

Ex-Girlfriend Of Texas Shooter: Devin Kelley Was A ‘Disgusting Pedophile’

The ex-girlfriend of Devin Kelley, the man who shot dead 26 people attending a Texas Church on Sunday has said he was a ‘disgusting person.’ Brittany Adcock, now 22, said she was just 13 years old when she started dated Devin Kelley. “He was a pervert,” she told Inside Edition. “A pedophile.”

Adcock claims that Kelley continued to stalk her for years after they split up, despite him being married. “He said… ‘Come live with me and my wife. I’ll take care of you so long as you be topless, you walk around topless all the time,’” she claimed.

 

“I always thought, ‘It has been so many years since we’ve broken up — why are you still contacting me?’ The last time he contacted me I said exactly that.”

It has since been revealed that Kelley escaped from a psychiatric unit and should not have been able to purchase a firearm on account of his discharge from the US air force and court-martial for a domestic assault.

Prodigal Son Runs Away To The World, Father Jumps Unthinkably Off The Porch When He Came Back

There’s always a point in our life where we feel numb or bored and we just try to get by. Everything that we do seems irrelevant and there’s nothing we are passionate about anymore. That’s why we try to fill the void with temporary things, to awaken our emotions and let loose.

The parable of the prodigal son has always been a great parable that teaches us a lot of things. And all of us can relate to it. The son is already blessed as he is, yet he longed for something more. He lost his sense of purpose and looked for something that can awaken his emotions and fill the empty void he had been experiencing. Then he runs away to the world, believing that something out there can satisfy him.

Watch the skit below and have a glimpse of what a modern day prodigal son looks like.

The truth is, we are like the prodigal son. We stray away from the presence of God when we grow weary in our faith and when we’re being pulled by the world to embrace its destructive ways. We lost sight of the Father because we’ve been full of ourselves. We lost sight on what’s eternal and settled for temporary things. We lost sight of who we really are.

But indeed God is a sovereign God. His pursuit is greater than our ability to wander. He pursues us relentlessly and endlessly, forgiving us as if nothing happened. He embraces us as if we’re not flawed and untidy, and sees our worth when we deem worthless.

So if you’re feeling like you’ve gone too far from God and you’re feeling that you’re 10, 000 steps away from home, just take one step back and God will do the 99, 000 more to run to you.

Or maybe there’s a love one that ran away from your home and you feel like there’s no way they’re coming back, just hold on and wait like the Father did. He is always able to restore what is lost.
