NEWS: DENZEL WASHINGTON TELLS GQ MAGAZINE ‘I READ THE BIBLE DAILY’

Denzel Washington

Fashionably dressed for the October issue of GQ Magazine Training Day actor Denzel Washington reveals that his Christianity is the code he lives by. The preacher's son doesn't go a day without reading the good news; "I read from the Bible every day, and I read my Daily Word. "I read something great yesterday. It said, 'Don't aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference.'"

The two time Grammy winning actor explains his experience of being filled with the Holy Spirit 30 years ago.

The minister was preaching, "Just let it go." I said, "I'm going to go with it." And I had this tremendous physical and spiritual experience. It did frighten me. I was slobbering, crying, sweating. My cheeks blew up. I was purging. It was too intense. It almost drove me away. I called my mother, and she said I was being filled with the Holy Spirit.

The top Hollywood actor known for his leading roles in  films such as The Preachers Wife, Malcom X and  American Gangster, is very assertive when it comes to his spiritual life.  Not one to shy away from his beliefs the Christian actor dishes his thoughts on how we can live a better life;

Put your slippers way under your bed so when you get up in the morning, you have to get on your knees to find them. And while you're down there, start your day with prayer. Ask for wisdom. Ask for understanding. I'm not telling you what religion to be, but work on your spirit. You know, mind, body, and spirit.
