Brooklyn Pastor A.R Bernard of Christian Cultural Center was joined by award-winning actor Denzel Washington on Instagram Live Thursday where they discussed Washington’s spiritual journey and relationship with God.
In the 33-minute video, Washington noted that he had given his life to Christ three times when he was younger, Fox News reported.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

What is your response?
