innovators??? = they will never have any form of 'ego-vanity=their $$$/fame is the least of their identify =
they will be Yeshua's slaves, to serve Him and leave all of the world's bondages behind, which
of course will be a complete Blessing, and will only be His tool to separate them from the 'world' without
anyone who truly knows Jesus from questioning their 'sincerity'!!!

I see Mel Gibson, noted for his anti-semitic rant.
We had Justin Bieber homeschooled as a Christian now noted for hitting fans, spitting on them and sexuality.
Denzel Washington who wrote Eli. A quest to save a book... which turned out to be the bible. But we also see it in a place of honor next to the Koran and other religious books.
Stephen Baldwin, I met him in person. Total d-bag. He appeared rude and irritable to the few of us around him. And when he left he put on a big smile, got friendly and handed out pamphlets for his new book. Everyone there was disgusted with him. Oh, yeah, I had gone up to him to ask him about his Extreme Sports ministry, and that's how he acted.
Guy from Guardians of the Galaxy, where he played a character that viewed women so poorly after having a one night stand he forgot she was on his ship. Not to mention he went on to do another movie where he was in a sex scene.
Kanye West was supposedly a Christian already, when he first got popular.
It seems a plethora of singers started out as Christian and gave it up.

They do these things then boast their faith. Is that really good? Are these actually good models of faith? Would you be happy to tell your kids a celebrity is Christian and then see them in a movie in a sex scene with a naked woman? Or putting other religious books as equal to the bible?
They usually have to choose between faith and fame. Chances are if you know their name they put their fame first, no matter how outspoken they are about their faith.

It's actually extremely rare to hear of the spiritual impact of a celebrity on fans.

'Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.'

I always have the feeling that Christians are fast in judging other Christians.
I do not know these people for private...neither I know you.
I know myself and I know that I made a lot of stupid things 'cause I am a sinful man....like all of us!
Christ died for my sins.
In fact that will not stop me from doing wrong things in future but I want to come closer to Jesus and have a healthy relationship with him!
I want to accept his grace and I won't deny that to someone else - doesn't matter if he is fameous or not.
It is nothing wrong to be critical but for me it is more important to be in love with eachother and stick together in and through our faith.
To exhort and to encourage each other!
Mel Gibsons drunken rant is 13 years ago...don't you think Jesus had forgive him and also died for his sins?
I think Justin Bieber also has changed. All the things you had mentioned are laying in the past. Now he is a married man and I have the feeling that he tries to be a better person.
In fact I actually don't know if I would have done better, growing up in front of the whole world and be criticized by everything I've done.
That's why we shall encourage our brothers and sisters and not shall not act like the world by discourage them.
God changed Saul and made him to Paul. He used murderers, rapists and changed them completely to spread the Gospel.
I am sure that he also can use these people and can change them in the name of Christ. I will pray for them and observe the development, as I pray for my own development.

"Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister." (Romans 14:13)

"Do not judge, or you too will be judged." (Matthew 7:1)

"A person may think their own ways are right, but the Lord weighs the heart." (Proverbs 21:2)

Be blessed!!!

That is inspiring and I'm sure they are doing more good than negative by showing their respect for God.
Considering any faults they have, no one would be left to give testimony if we were all being judged.
That's their profession and to stand up for Christ, in the midst of secularism, is a step in the right direction, God bless.

Mel Gibson also made 'Passion of the Christ' one of the only depictions of the real brutality of the Cross, I have ever seen. If he is still racist, he will answer for it.

I know what movie he made. It doesn't erase his actions. I don't know where he stands now, but my overall point was that these celebs don't often reflect well what they claim.

They never claimed that they are perfect, have they? Take a look at some of the people God used, no back ground checks.

Well I think I get your point but the examples you took doesn't fit because that are mistakes that we all do and have.

"[...]Or putting other religious books as equal to the bible?"

Of course you are right when you say that a Christian can't put other religious books as equal to the Bible!
Before I created the video I made a bit of research and I did not find any quote of one of them who had ever said that.
That's why I only picked Celebrities, who spread the name of Jesus Christ - our Lord and Saviour - and not only Gods.
I honestly wasn't sure how to handle the confession of Mel Gibson as a Catholic but decided to took this interview about 'Passion of Christ' - because this movie is all about Jesus as our ONLY Saviour!
There are some Christian Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey who indeed said that there are many ways to come to God. That's a statement I can't share!

"They usually have to choose between faith and fame. Chances are if you know their name they put their fame first"

I would like you to watch the whole Testimony of Stephen Baldwin. In my opinion it shows that he decided against the fame and to Christ! It is breath-stunning!


Maybe he had a bad day and I can understand that he lost some points of sympathy in your opinion when you met him but it does not change that I think he IS a true believer and follower of Christ. Maybe next time you gonna met him he is full of love for you :). In fact, when I watched his Testimony he was very confident in being a chld of God! It was the one I decided to pick that touched me the most (and Jim Caviezels Testimony in my first 'Hollywood is NOT lost yet'-video).

"[...] Then see them in a movie in a sex scene with a naked woman?"

In 2015, it was made public knowledge that Chris refused to participate in filming any sex scenes due to his faith and would “no longer bare his body for anyone but his wife.”

Well, honestly there was a scene in the movie "The Passengers" from 2016 with Chris Pratt, that is pretty close to a sex scene. That's probably a mistake he did and he has to justify this with God.
But I refuse to believe that he didn't mean it serious when he made the statement in 2015.
So this is again a point where I want to exhort but IN love and not only judge and 'cast the first stone'

I found a good article somebody wrote to Chris Pratt and want to quote a passage:

"Christians like Chris Pratt are Christians who have a sincere desire to walk-the-walk of Christianity but stumble along the way. They don’t want to simply say they are Christians, they want to live it out. They use their platform that their jobs and hobbies give them as an opportunity to tell others about what Christ has done for them. But they still aren’t perfect and have some major hurdles they have to face. They are people who are quick to make claims on the standards they want to follow because of the Scriptures, but they don’t always have success in staying faithful to those claims."

I recommend you to read the article(s) because it is pretty much the same way I am thinking.
