Apart from being fabulously rich and famous, what else do these celebs have in common? You never know who you will meet when out sharing your faith….
“When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn’t a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self,” he says. “I had faith that I’m capable enough to handle any situation. There’s peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I’m responsible.” From Parade magazine, October 2, 2007.
In the September 6, 2000 edition of The Onion A.V. Club titled “Is There A God?”, celebrities were asked the question: Is there a God?
Angelina Jolie: Hmm… For some people. I hope so, for them. For the people who believe in it, I hope so. There doesn’t need to be a God for me. There’s something in people that’s spiritual, that’s godlike. I don’t feel like doing things just because people say things, but I also don’t really know if it’s better to just not believe in anything, either.”
“I don’t believe in Heaven and Hell. I don’t know if I believe in God. All I know is that as an individual, I won’t allow this life — the only thing I know to exist — to be wasted.” From the Washington Post September 28, 1997
“Organized religions in general, in my opinion, are dying forms. They were all very important when we didn’t know why the sun moved, why weather changed, why hurricanes occurred, or volcanoes happened. Modern religion is the end trail of modern mythology. But there are people who interpret the Bible literally. Literally! I choose not to believe that’s the way. And that’s what makes America cool, you know?”
Evangelists: If you ever meet an atheist celebrity while out in the field, be nice. Polite. Who knows, they may even listen to you! And if you attend a show where fans gather, just give the law and Gospel. Watch your attitude. Even smile a little. Please, don’t act like this lady!
