It’s no secret that Denzel Washington is a Christian who gives God all the glory for his success. Through all of his triumphs and awards, he’s kept God at the helm of his life and career. The famous actor, who describes himself as a God-fearing man, recently opened up to the New York Times and went in-depth about his faith.

Washington shared the spiritual aspect of his Christian faith and highlighted the importance of having an anchor in a shifting culture. Washington is getting ready to release his new movie “Macbeth.” In his interview with the New York Times, he talked about the Bible, God, and Heaven.

In the interview, Washington says that what he’s done and what he’s made will help him on the last days of his life. He described the spiritual warfare that’s going on in today’s world, saying that he’s not looking at things from an earthly perspective and highlighting the importance of having a spiritual anchor.

Washington says the wind will blow you away without a spiritual anchor and lead you to depression. The Oscar-winning actor then described today’s world as a self-obsessed society, saying that the Bible says in the last days, we’ll be lovers of ourselves.

Washington used Timothy 3:1-5 to say how everyone loves to take selfies nowadays, and we’re living in a time where people will do anything for attention. He then reiterated that it’s not for him to say if we’re in the last days or not, but that’s what’s in the Bible.

Washington then stated that the problem with too much information is that the data can get into the wrong hands, and people can manipulate it in many ways. Washington then shared his view on Heaven, saying that he believes there will be two lines, one long and one short. If Washington had his way, he would be in the short line.

Washington also said that today’s world has a way of chipping away at you as time goes by, so you have to fill up your spiritual bucket every day before leaving the house. Washington also discussed his mother, who passed away in June of this year at 97-years-old.

Before she died, Washington stated that he had made a promise to her and God not only to live right but to honor his mother and father by the way he lives his life for the rest of his time on earth. He says that he’s here to serve, help, and provide.

Denzel Washington is an incredible actor whose career has spanned decades. He’s won awards and accolades, but at his core, he’s a Christian man who wants to do right by the Lord. He recognizes that God is the anchor in his life, and to be successful, he must cling to Him. As Christians, we must remember that God is the source of all of our help. While sticking to God, we must also not forget to honor our mother and father for all of our lives.
