At the 28th annual Movie guide Awards, John Rhys-Davies who casted as ‘Gimli’ in the Lord of the Rings spoke out in defense of the Christian Faith.
While on the red Carpet, The British actor, who returned last year as a voice actor in the animated version of “Pilgrims Progress” said Christian civilization has made the world a better place than it was ever was and urged people to view Christianity as a force for good in the world.
According to research, Growth Among Religious ‘Nones’ was Declining which raised the question “ Has America Reached Peak Atheism?”
Speaking to The Christian post at the red carpet, he said “I count myself a rationalist and a skeptic, and I find myself constantly defending Christians and Christianity.” Making reference to the abolition of the slave trade alongside the championing of the “right of free speech “ and “the right of the individual conscience “ as one of Christianity’s great glories,Rhys-Davies explained how Dem Presidential Candidate was told to drop out after admitting He thinks Abortion is ‘ a Tragedy’.
“These evolved in first and second century Roman Christendom, where the individual Christian said, ‘I have a right to believe, what I believe and not what the Emperor tells me.’ From that our whole idea of democracy and the equality that we have has developed,” the actor explained.
In his words, he said he thinks we owe Christianity the greatest debt of thanks that a generation can ever have and to slight it and to dismiss it as being irrelevant is the detritus of rather ill read minds.
Seeing a prominent actor who rightly recognizes the good and the impact of the Christian Faith to the world is one of the most encouraging movement in an industry filled with anti-Christianity sentiment.
