What? Quote from article- Keanu Reynolds is a most wonderful human being.
Yes he is and so Humble.
I believe in God , but just because he don’t exspress religion that should be his personal thing .And yes he is a very nice person and has loved ones taken from him and personally I understand that feeling it’s a tough go.
I love Keanu Reeves, whether he is Christian or other, he is just a wonderful human being
Keanu Reeves is a Christian because he acts like one and that is what matters. I don’t know if he knows that he is a Christian, but he should go to a Christian church if he doesn’t go to one already. I really would like to have a talk with him.
Christians have done the most horrendous things in the world. Wars have been instigated by them, racism too. Genocide of Natives in the Americas and Aborigines in Australia as well as abductions of thousands of blacks from Africa. Wake up my dear, you’re only looking at your own church building and the few who go there.
Just be quiet about Christianity. Cause you clearly don’t know anything about it. People committed those things you mentioned. Not Christians. PEOPLE. A true christian would never hurt a fellow human being. And even when we kill animals, it’s fast so that they don’t suffer. So get some education. None of the things you mentioned above is condoned by Christianity. Christianity is the biggest religion of peace. Jesus literally said to turn the other cheek. Chris rock can give you some insight. Peace
Please don’t spout off nonsense Christian values are against everything you just said.
If he has accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior then he is a Christian. Simply being a good person and being selfless and loving our brother doesn’t get us to Heaven.
Keanu Reeves can be a Christian without practicing every belief which makes him more spiritual than worldly or religiously so. It says it’s better to be more spiritual than religious. Christian means to be Christ like; spiritual is when you’re doing Gods will, the message of Christ. Reaching out to all nations of the world to spread the Good word and to give in a spirit of charity to the less fortunate which Keanu has more than done. He leads the truth path that we should all be walking
You have to accept the gift of salvation. Jesus died and took every sin, past, present and future for everyone. But not everyone accepts the gift. You can’t just be Christ like. You have to accept Him as your savior. I’d like to speak to Keanu. He’s already Christlike. But he must confess his need for Christ and accept the free gift.
Preach it! So many people saying they are Christians because they do good things, help their brother, selfless acts of kindness. Only accepting Jesus Christ into your heart gets you to Heaven!
You’re correct Kaysi. Keannu has fine ethics & generous spirit, & would be commended by Jesus like the Roman centurian or the “good” Samaritan etc all “outside” the religious establishment.
But Jesus stars “no one is ‘good’ but the Father”.
The Christian Bible states that (compared to God’s purity) our human righteousness is like “filthy rags”. Apostle Paul considered himself “chief of sinners”.
That’s why we ALL need a redeeming, sinless Saviour – even Mother Theresa & Jesus own mother who says “my Saviour” in her “Magnificat”(but wrongly considered ‘sinless’ in Catholicism)
Be careful in judging or condemning others. Tighten your yok and follow in faith!
