Famous Actor Brad Pitt Turns From Atheism To Cling To Jesus

10

For Brad Pitt, religion hasn’t always been a priority. In fact, the actor admits to calling himself an atheist at one time. But after facing some pretty tough times, from addiction to a painful divorce from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt’s faith appears to be evolving. Now, he says he clings to religion.

Brad Pitt Discusses Christianity

In the more than three decades Brad Pitt’s been in Hollywood, he’s considered himself an atheist or agnostic when it comes to God. However, the Oklahoma native recently said he’s finally embraced belief in God.

“Oh, man, I’ve gone through everything. Like, I cling to religion. I grew up with Christianity. Always questioned it, but it worked at times,” he said in a recent interview with GQ magazine.

Forsaking His Christian Roots

Brad Pitt was raised by devout parents in the Southern Baptist Church. However, he said he found religion and Christianity “stifling.”

“When I got on my own, I completely left it and I called myself agnostic,” Pitt says now. “Tried a few spiritual things but didn’t feel right.”

And over the years, also said he struggled with “Christian guilt” over the things he knew he should and shouldn’t do. Along the way, he says he alternated between considering himself an atheist or simply agnostic. But he says it never truly fit.

“Then I called myself an atheist for a while, just kind of being rebellious,” Pitt confessed. “I wasn’t really. But I kinda labeled myself that for a while,” he said. “It felt punk rock enough.”

Brad Pitt’s net worth is estimated to be around $300 million dollars. He’s been considered an A-Lister and one of the most attractive men in Hollywood for, well, what feels like forever. Awards and accolades have poured in for his film and TV work. He even works as a Producer under his own production company.

The long list of accomplishments and Brad Pitt’s net worth of $300 million sounds impressive by the world’s standards. But as the Hollywood heartthrob is coming to realize, money and fame have nothing to do with true worth.

The havoc in Brad Pitt’s personal life forced him to this realization.

A Hard Look During Hard Times

Despite all of his success, alcoholism and other self-destructive patterns got in the way of what really matters. Religion, family, self-care — Brad Pitt pushed all of it aside while caught up in the many distractions the world has to offer.

And it wasn’t until the painful divorced between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that he realized he wasn’t valuing the true blessings in his life, like his children.

“I gotta be more — I gotta be more for them,” Brad said during the divorce. “I have to show them. And I haven’t been great at it.”

Brad Pitt’s success afforded him several big, beautiful houses. Yet, he recalls spending weeks sleeping on the floor at a friend’s house after his divorce from Angelina Jolie because it was simply “too sad” to stay in the family’s home all alone.

Returning to God

Weathering these storms has forced Brad to take a hard look at himself and his choices. And now, it seems like the struggles may be softening his heart towards God!

As with every human being, God wasn’t done with Brad Pitt yet. And Pitt decided he wasn’t done with God, either.

“I found myself coming back around to just belief in — I hate to use the word spirituality,” he said, “but just a belief in that we’re all connected.”

And Pitt isn’t alone in his walk.

According to a recent Pew Research study, about 19 percent of Americans who were raised Christian have fallen away from their faith.

Thankfully, what people think at certain stages of life isnt always set in stone.

And faith and religion can be those things that evolve over time. God made human beings with the ability to choose to seek him or not.

And often the people who have questioned their religion and God come back stronger and more convicted in their faith than if they hadn’t.

It just goes to show that no matter who you are or what you’ve done, God is always there waiting for us to seek him out.

While he gave a negative approach to his parent’s faith, Pitt gave some sort validation to speaking in tongues saying: “I know they believe it. I know they’re releasing something. God, we’re complicated.”

It is our Ernest prayer that he finds the true rest which indeed is in Christ.

Pitt said when he was in high school his parents joined a “more charismatic movement which got into speaking in tongues and raising your hands”.

  1. I hope this is true for Justin, Kanye and Brad.
    I know that Justin and Brad were brought up in homes deep in the Christian faith – don’t know about Kanye. We, as Christians need to pray for them.
    Wonder if katy Perry will ever come around ?

  2. What a dishonest article making out like Pitt has had his come to Jesus moment stringing together various mentions of religion his is life to make it sound like some overwhelming conversion. But hey Christians aren’t known for honesty or ethics.

    • You were the one that sounds dishonesty here, from the article, where was such implied.
      In fact the article ended with “It is our Ernest prayer that he finds the true rest which indeed is in Christ”
      Are you that dishonest to ignore all that, I went through the article like 4 times now, am yet to see where and how you draw such inference,
      The closest i see is this “After going through so much turmoil and self-reflection, Brad’s heart is turning back to true faith.” and it was not writing “has turned”. Any way, what is the deal, He was even a Christian before .

    • Chad, you really need to look at your own self before coming off all holier-than-thou. Do you remember the story of the woman who had been caught in adultery, and brought before Jesus? He told the crowd of accusers, “Who of you that is without sin, cast the first stone.” He then knelt down to write something in the ground, then looked up to see that they had all left the area. He then looked at the woman, and asked her, “Woman, where are your accusers?” He then told her to “go and sin no more.”

    • Chad, Christians aren’t perfect, just believing in Christ Jesus as our savior. He is the one who did the suffering for us, and gives us a path to change and have new life in Him, and the best part, to KNOW that we have a future and a hope, even after we leave here. I thank God that He didn’t call perfect people or none of us would be here. You can believe and ask Jesus to help you to believe and have a new life too.

    • When you go to the hospital, you dont leave because there are so many sick people. The church is like a hospital where we all are for treatment, It’s not for the perfect but for those willing to fight for perfection.

    • Chad…Not fair, and very judgemental.. Becoming a true
      Believer is sometimes a live long
      Process. It would take a lot to explain that. If there wasn’t a devil
      Out there trying to keep people
      Enslaved, and blind to God’s will for their lives…It would be a lot
      Easier. I pray that each of these
      People continue to be touched by
      God’s holy spirit, and drawn into
      A deeper, and stronger faith & walk with the Lord Jesus the “Christ”. Amen. SO BE IT!

  3. Brad Pitt is unsaved. Someone may want to pray him through though. It doesn’t matter WHO it is who gets saved, I get more excited in fact, for some poor suicidal, homeless man in India who gets saved, than someone who does movies and swanks around. But if Brad truly humbles himself and seeks Jesus with all his heart, he will find Him, Scripture says. May the Lord help him. Amen.
