Well-known Christian actor Denzel Washington is in the news for going out his way to help a homeless man in danger.
Denzel Washington is an award-winning actor, director, and producer that has been in the industry for over four decades. He has been widely regarded as one of the greatest actors of his generation and is considered an American cultural icon.
Aside from his success in his career, Denzel is also widely known as a devout Christian. In the 1990s, he considered becoming a preacher; however, God has called him to continue his career in the movie industry.
“A part of me still says, ‘Maybe, Denzel, you’re supposed to preach. Maybe you’re still compromising.’ I’ve had an opportunity to play great men and, through their words, to preach. I take what talent I’ve been given seriously, and I want to use it for good,” Denzel stated.
