Back in 2019, Chris Pratt took a lot of heat after the notorious Scripture-quoting actor mentioned the name of Jesus in an award acceptance speech for MTV. Immediately following that speech, the far-left activists came for his head on social media and began slamming him for his association with Zoe Church which they described as “anti-LGBTQ.”

Zoe Church, where Pratt occasionally attended, is pastored by Chad Veach who, at the time, told the New York Times that his church was “modeled after Hillsong.” Veach could be seen regularly participating in conferences with Hillsong churches and preached at various Hillsong locations over the years.

Pratt then openly discussed his supposed faith with Stephen Colbert, and that’s when Ellen Page—the lesbian who now goes by “Elliot Page”—scolded him on Twitter for attending a church that is “notoriously anti lgbtq.”

Brian Houston, the founder of the modern Hillsong movement, and who at the time before his own moral failings was the CEO and lead pastor of the global megachurch, didn’t waste the opportunity to whitewash his organization’s image. In an effort to protect that image while being able to walk both sides of the aisle, Houston threw Chris Pratt under the bus.

Okay, but nobody claimed he was a member of Hillsong Church, it was stated that he attended a Hillsong-affiliated church, one that the pastor said he “modeled” after Hillsong and associated regularly with the leadership. But Houston knew that, and his statement was only meant to obfuscate the truth. Houston said in a statement that “Hillsong Church does not preach against anyone or any group; we are not ‘anti-anyone’. We are an inclusive Christian church that loves, values and welcomes all people, regardless of their background, ethnicity, beliefs, values, or personal identity.”

Fast forward three years, Chris Pratt is coming out with a new television series beginning next month, The Terminal List, Pratt denies any involvement with Hillsong and says that he is “not a religious person.” In an interview with Men’s Health, Pratt says that a few years ago during his acceptance speech at MTV, “he was asked to say something inspiring.” So he mentioned Jesus. Today, he offers an explanation for that, according to Men’s Health.

“Maybe it was hubris. For me to stand up on the stage and say the things that I said, I’m not sure I touched anybody,” Men’s Health quoted Pratt as saying. “Religion has been oppressive as f**k for a long time,” he continued. “I didn’t know that I would kind of become the face of religion when really I’m not a religious person.”

If there is any better demonstration of a man forfeiting his soul to gain the whole world, it would be difficult to find.

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? —Luke 9:23-25
