Chris Pratt Recalls The Moment He Was Saved: "Jesus Told Me To Talk To You"
Jan 06, 2017
Chris Pratt may be a superstar Hollywood actor, but he came from humble beginnings. Selling coupons as a door to door salesman, Pratt took the hard route into show business. Somewhere along the way, however, he discovered Jesus Christ, and everything changed. It was in Hawaii that Pratt says he was “saved," reports CBN.
Explaining, “I was sitting outside a grocery store—we’d convinced someone to go in and buy us beer. This is Maui. And a guy named Henry came up and recognized something in me that needed to be saved. He asked what I was doing that night, and I was honest. I said, ‘My friend’s inside buying me alcohol.’ ‘You going to go party?’ he asked. ‘Yeah.’ ‘Drink and do drugs? Meet girls, fornication?’ I was like, ‘I hope so.’ I was charmed by this guy, don’t know why. He was an Asian dude, maybe Hawaiian, in his 40s."
"It should’ve made me nervous but didn’t. I said, ‘Why are you asking?’ He said, ‘Jesus told me to talk to you . . .’ At that moment I was like, I think I have to go with this guy. He took me to church. Over the next few days I surprised my friends by declaring that I was going to change my life.”
