He doesn’t really discuss his newfound faith but he does mention it. It’s not a theological treatise but hey anytime someone mentions Christianity in a positive way (who is not Jon Voight or Jim Caviezel) it’s kind of worth taking notice.
Shia LaBeouf, whom I don’t blame for the last Indiana Jones movie but I’ve got to admit he still has the stink of it on him, says he’s now a Christian. Let’s face it, the guy’s been through the ringer the past few years -most of it self-inflicted. It’d be nice to see him come to a good place.
“I found God doing ‘Fury,’” LaBeouf said. “I became a Christian man, and not in a f**** bullsh*& way — in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can’t identify unless you’re really going through it. It’s a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control.”
You know, I recently mentioned the fact that Cybil Shephered made a sort-of return to Christianity recently. Someone commented that she’s not a real Christian or that she mixes in some paganism with it. She might. I don’t know. But we’re all on a journey. Are Cybil or Shia saints? Probably not. Are they theologically on point? Probably not.
I don’t think many saints mention their faith in a string of expletives like Shia did but hey, maybe some of them had potty mouths. Who knows?
But I’m not a saint either. And I think it’s worth pointing out and maybe even saying a prayer for some poor dude who got too much too fast and is looking for a way to get right.
