Brad Pitt's Beliefs will Lead him to Hell
Brad Pitt's beliefs will lead him to hell. Who cares what a famous Hollywood actor has to say about faith? The problem is, we need to care, since in this time when more people's beliefs are shaped by People magazine and Entertainment Tonight than the church, the beliefs of someone like Pitt DO influence the beliefs of the masses. Brad Pitt reaches more people than 99% of pastors will ever hope to reach, and he is reaching a large percentage of people worldwide who are lost, without the hope of Christ, and heading to hell. Pitt is a great ambassador of satan in helping to support those who reject Christ feel good about that choice, that sadly will lead their eternal souls to the flames of hell for all eternity.
In a recent Parade Magazine interview, Pitt said the following about California's Prop 8, "It's ridiculous that Prop 8 took away gay people's right to marry! I have no understanding of that kind of hatred. Maybe it's fear of difference or of the unknown. If you feel belittled, maybe you need someone else to belittle to feel powerful. It's the only way I know how to explain it. You've got religion telling you what to think about homosexuality, about marriage. They say homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle, something you can be cured of, and that isn't true. But if you're tucked away and have no friends who are gay, you'll believe what the preachers say. Just think of it in terms of being in love--how would you feel if someone told you that you couldn't be with the person you loved?"
First Brad, marriage is not a right, it is God's Holy Institution between a MAN and a WOMAN for life. Those who oppose this perversion of God's plan for marriage (homosexuality) don't do it out of hatred or fear of anyone. It is about defending a basic foundation of society. Of course, Pitt supports gay marriage because he has chosen to pervert God's Holy Institution by divorcing his actress wife Jennifer Aniston to live outside of marriage with another actress, Angelina Jolie and her children. Pitt goes on to slam Christians who work to help those whose CHOICE of perverted sexual relations have put them in bondage no different than an alcoholic or drug addict. By the way, just because you "love" someone or something doesn't mean it is an emotion you should act on, since it is often outside of God's Word.
However, Pitt didn't end with his views on gay marriage. He went on to share his views on Christianity, "I grew up in a Christian community and for me the positive thing was that once a week, on Sundays, we focused on bigger issues. But the negative to me is that it was very stifling in the end because it was about what you can't do. Now, Christians will argue, 'That's not true.' To me, I just found Christianity to be, 'Don't do this, don't do that.'"
I deal daily with non-believers like Pitt and hear this same tired excuse. As I have shared with you many times, a huge reason people reject Christ is because they don't want to be held accountable for their actions. They want to say what they want, do what they want, act in any manner and not be held accountable by God. So they play this game of denouncing God, the Bible, and faith in Christ in order to fool themselves into believing they don't have to answer to anyone. The Bible is NOT about "don't do this and don't do that," it is about DO THIS and DO THAT like any good instruction manual, in order that man might enjoy this brief journey through life and be united with God in Heaven for all eternity once this life ends.
I love you and care about you so much. It is sad that such a widely read publication like Parade gives Pitt a forum to air his false beliefs. This is just another example of what I have be saying for years, why Christians MUST be in the mainstream to challenge the lies of someone like Pitt so at least people are hearing God's side. Satan boldly speaks through instruments like Pitt to help people who reject the Bible and Christ feel good about their rejection of the truth and insure they will die and spend eternity in hell. This is about one thing my friend, SOULS! Pitt is being used by satan to be his actor to deliver his lies to the masses in order to lead more souls to hell!!!
Pray for Brad Pitt. Pray that he will open his eyes and realize that just because he has made horrible choices in his own life, he can repent, turn to God, and not only find forgiveness, but everlasting life through faith in Jesus Christ. I have little doubt his rejection comes from his own rebellious choices, but sadly, he is now helping to encourage others to reject Christ and be eternally separated from God and His love. I pray today that Brad will repent and turn to the Lord and find His forgiveness, peace, and love.
In His love and service, Your friend and brother in Christ, Bill Keller
