'Faith Without Works Is Nothing': Denzel Washington Tells CBN How He Pursues God's Will


Film critics say Denzel Washington delivers a transformative performance in his next film, Roman J Israel, Esquire. Washington plays a civil rights activist and attorney. 

In a recent interview with Studio 5's Efrem Graham, the two-time Academy Award winner shared the importance of using his platform to share his Christian faith. 

"You have to use your gifts – faith without works is nothing," said Washington.

"So, not everybody has to be an activist," he continued. "A woman prophesied years and years ago that I would travel the world and preach to millions of people. I asked my pastor, 'Does that mean I am supposed to be a preacher?' He says, 'No you already have a pulpit.'" 

Washington added, "He didn't say 'stay in your lane,' but try to be an agent for good."

"That's what I'm all about now. I'm in the service business."
