Actor Denzel Washington has said, “I read the Bible every day. My pastor told me to start with the New Testament, so I did, worked my way through it, then through the Old Testament. Now I’m back in the New Testament.” Washington is an evangelical Christian who often speaks publicly of his faith. It seems that he understands what the Bible means when it says, “For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword…a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” If he is sincerely applying its truths, he is finding that the Bible has the power to transform lives, just as Paul affirmed when he wrote, “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.” Like Denzel Washington, we can all trust the Bible.
