Under the heading ‘Will Johnny Depp Turn to God in His Time of Crisis?’, Larry Tomczak is asking Christians ‘to engage in fervent prayer for this gifted and needy man who’s so in need of God’s love and recalibration of his life.’
Tomzac had just read a Rolling Stone interview with Depp which leaves one in no doubt that the Hollywood star’s life is in a mess.
But Depp, who has no religious belief, is unlikely to fall to his knees and seek God’s help. Not long ago, Kentucky-born Johnny Depp, who grew up absent a father and said his mom was “the meanest human being I’ve ever met” was asked by interviewer Larry King if he had faith. He replied:
Yes, I have faith in my kids. And I have –I have faith, you know, that as long as you keep moving forward, just keep walking forward, things will be all right. Faith in terms of religion, I don’t – religion is not my specialty, you know.
And he concludes:
Johnny Depp is regarded as one of the world’s richest and biggest movie stars. As he turned 55, his personal and financial world started falling apart. Concerned individuals pray for him and hope he will look heavenward as his ongoing restless life spirals dangerously out of control.
Here’s the Deal. Tracing Depp’s descent is heart wrenching and should motivate all compassionate Christians to intercede for him. His carefree, quirky ‘Jack Sparrow’ image masks a man desperately in need of Jesus.
Will you join with me in praying for divine intervention to rescue this ‘lost boy … to find his way home before dark?’ God loves him so much. May his story be like George Bailey in the classic, It’s a Wonderful Life where a turnaround experience enabled him to discover what eluded him for so many years.
Last year Depp was forced to apologise after he asked an audience at the Glastonbury festival:
When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?
A Trump’s White House official harshly condemned the remark.
President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.
