Words of Wisdom from Mr. T
On his new show, the legendary actor uses his Christian faith to help motivate and inspire people.
He may be a little older, and all his gold chains are gone. (He stopped wearing them after Katrina, feeling it would be a sin against God to do so while so many people were suffering). But his trademark Mohawk and scowl are unmistakable. Yes, it's Mr. T—back and better than ever. He's grown stronger in his faith in the years since he played the legendary Sgt. B.A. Baracus on "The A-Team" and tough-guy boxer Clubber Lang in "Rocky III." And now he's got a new show, "I Pity the Fool," airing Wednesday nights at 10, on TV Land, where he motivates workers to be better at their jobs, reunites families who've grown apart, and helps inspire people to be better human beings.
Mr. T recently spoke to Beliefnet about how his Christian faith helps him help others on the show, the importance of prayer in his life, why he pities the fool, and going through his "Job test" when diagnosed with cancer. Listen to Mr. T:
