Actor Denzel Washington has spoken out about his faith in God, saying at a recent event God has always had faith in him.
Washington, who is the past has spoken out about his Christian faith, made his comments at a recent event hosted by the Church of God in Christ in St. Louis, Missouri.
“There’s never been a time where God didn’t direct, protect, and correct me,” Washington said at the annual event. “There may have been times where I was less than faithful to him, but he had faith in me.”
Washington has spoken out about his Christian faith before, previously telling GQ Magazine that he reads the Bible daily, adding that such an activity isn’t difficult, as he is the son of a pastor.
“I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word,” Washington said, adding that his preacher father “wasn’t a taskmaster, but there were certain things you couldn’t do.”
“He had his own church, and it was a long Sunday, because you had to be there all day,” the actor added.
“Everyone I grew up with didn’t have a father,” he continued. “I had a father. My father was a decent man. He was a very spiritual man and a gentleman.”
The well-known actor also made his faith known during a graduation ceremony speech at Dillard University back in May, where he told students to “put God first.”
“Number one: Put God first,” he said. “Put God first in everything you do.”
“Everything you think you see in me, everything I’ve accomplished, everything you think I have – and I have a few things,” said Washington. “Everything that I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.”
