Chris Pratt Has A Message For Haters Dunking On His Faith

There's a simple reason he's not phased by people who ridicule his belief

Chris Pratt makes no secret of the fact that he’s a Christian. He even met his wife at church.

Christian faith has fallen out of favor, socially, so it’s trendy to dunk in all things Christian.. but Pratt takes it in stride. He even gives ‘chapter and verse’ for his reason why.

‘That’s nothing new, that’s nothing new, you know?’ Pratt told Page Six, adding, ‘If I was of this world, they would love me just like that but as it is, I’ve chosen out of this world. That’s John 15:18 through 20.’
‘That’s the way it is, nothing new, 2,000 years ago they hated him, too,’ he added, referring to Jesus Christ. — DailyMail

But he makes a distinction between having a living relationship with Christ and being someone who just ticks off religious boxes like Dana Carvey’s Church Lady character from old-school SNL.

“Religion has been oppressive as f*ck for a long time,” he said. “I didn’t know that I would kind of become the face of religion when really I’m not a religious person.
‘I think there’s a distinction between being religious — adhering to the customs created by man, oftentimes appropriating the awe reserved for who I believe is a very real God — and using it to control people, to take money from people, to abuse children, to steal land, to justify hatred.
‘Whatever it is. The evil that’s in the heart of every single man has glommed onto the back of religion and come along for the ride.’ — DailyMail

  1. When someone who has placed his faith in Jesus Christ gets older, he begins to perceive how Christ has always been in his life before he ever knew it. Two people do the very same thing: one is enslaved—the other is miraculously freed. Two run through a “hail of gunfire;” one is shot, the other escapes. And on and on. Most people think these are merely random events, but the one who is saved in Christ is governed by HIS authority, not man’s. Jesus said, “You did not choose me, but I chose you.” Here, says Jesus is why believers are hated: “If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” The saddest thing I know is that all men are invited to be chosen out of the world and have their names written in the Book of life—but the majority of men refuse!

    We think we are meaner, bigger, better, yet anyone of us is not immune to getting cut on the edge of some tuna fish can and perishing. We are frail, flawed and blemished—full of pride—and in reality, we are all just on a big boat—all together, yet each alone…just trying to get to shore. We are the only species that has technology. We have boasted great things…from putting a man on the Moon to building the tallest skyscraper, but man himself cannot stand up to a blade of grass—which he has yet to

    And oh…about religion, Chris is right. Many of us go to church, sing our halleluiahs, raise our hands and profess Christ as our Savior, and run out of the building forgetting why we came. Better not to open the door than to play church. Better to “rob a bank and get thirty years” than pretend your life is on solid ground. Jesus hated religion; he hated pretenders; he wanted genuine relationships, and everyone is invited to have one with Him.
