Who are the top 5 Christian celebrities in the U.S. ? Some people might think that's a weird question to ask. As Christians, we are all children of God and all equal in His eyes. His love has nothing to do with the reputation, nationality, capability, money, race, gender and so on of the individual. In other words, people aren't less important because they aren't Christian Celebrities in God's eyes. Is it even interesting to talk about this?
Actually, we have to admit, Christian celebrities have much more influence on the world because of their positive testimonies and it's good for unbelievers.
These 5 Christian celebrities have kept their moral integrity and faith, proving that success doesn't necessarily lead to losing their spiritual path.
#1: Denzel Washington
As an actor, Denzel Washington is the winner of two Golden Globe awards, a Tony Award and two Academy Awards. No wonder some media described him as him "the most powerful and respected actors and directors in Hollywood."
Denzel, whose father is a Pentecostal minister, is a devout Christian. In fact, he even thought of becoming a preacher. "A part of me still says, 'Maybe, Denzel, you're supposed to preach. Maybe you're still compromising.' I've had an opportunity to play great men and, through their words, to preach. I take what talent I've been given seriously, and I want to use it for good," he said in 1999.
In 1995, Denzel "donated 2.5 million dollars to help build the new West Angeles Church of God in Christ facility in Los Angeles."
He lives with his wife, Pauletta, and their four children.
#2: Patricia Heaton
Patricia Heaton, who is best known for portraying Debra Barone on "Everybody Loves Raymond," has won two Emmy Awards.
Heaton was born in a Catholic family, but now attends an evangelical Presbyterian Church. She considers herself a conservative Christian. She attends regular group Bible studies.
# 3: Jonas Brothers
If there are teenagers around you, you might know the Jonas Brothers: Nick (16), Joe (19), and Kevin (21).
The brothers form a famous American pop-rock band, which gained tremendous success through mainstream radio and TV.
They are very outspoken about their Evangelical Christian faith, having been raised in a Christian family, wearing "purity rings" and even announcing publicly their vow to abstain from sex until marriage. Moreover, the brothers are enthusiastic about supporting charities.
#4: Justin Bieber
Pop music superstar Justin Bieber has never hidden his Christian faith. The latest occasion is at the Billboard Music Awards ceremony a week ago, when Bieber won Milestone award. In his acceptance speech, he gave thanks to his family, and the most important one: Jesus Christ.
Bieber's mother is a devout Christian, who gave her son the best advice by telling him to keep his faith strong and believe in God and Jesus.
Even though the young music icon recently had some questionable behaviors, Cathleen Falsani, a Bieber biographer who has studied his faith journey, said that he can still be a role model for America's Christian youth.
#5: Adriana Lima
Adriana Lima is a beautiful model of Victoria's Secret and Maybelline.
But the top model is also a devout Roman Catholic who attends mass every Sunday. In April 2006, she told GQ that she planned to stay a virgin until she is married."Sex is for after marriage," she explained. "They [men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there's no respect, that means they don't want me." Lima works with charities that help orphans.
