20 Celebrities You Might Not Know Are Christian
This is a list of celebrity christians. It is for fun and not intended for anything else. There are plenty of celebrities that will not be on this list I am sure. I know the “celebrity christian thing” creates a lot of controversy. As you know by now this site is about positivity and love.
I know some christians get very upset that some if not most celebrities do not meet their standards of being a christian. Of course let’s be honest, we do not really know any of these people. What we see is the sensationalism not their everyday lives. They are just average human beings like you and I. Do they have there faults and do they sin, of course. But don’t we all. There is no chirstian making statements like, “this celebrity is not god like”, that is without sin themselves. So lets relax people. Also it is great for other christians to see that the people they see on tv etc. everyday are christians.
