Mark Wahlberg Says ‘Nobody’s Beyond Redemption…God Knows Your Heart’

Mark Wahlberg Says ‘Nobody’s Beyond Redemption…God Knows Your Heart’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Mark Wahlberg says that all of his “personal and professional success” has been because of his faith. 

“[My faith] has been very real to me from a very early age,” the actor said in an interview with Eric Metaxas. “I accredit all my personal and professional success to my faith.”

Wahlberg continued, “When I started doing good things, good things started happening for me.”

The FATHER STU actor also shared his future plans for more faith-based projects. 

“I definitely am committed to and looking forward to doing more faith-based content and more stuff that just has substance and helps people,” Wahlberg said, adding that he’s “hoping to start a faith-based component and do lots of meaningful stuff — both film [and] television.”

Wahlberg explained that he is open with his faith because he wants to “really bring people together.”

“We’re all trying to see the good in everybody,” he said. “Nobody’s beyond redemption if they’re willing to do the work. God knows your heart.”

Wahlberg recently shared his faith in a Super Bowl ad for the Hallow app. 

“God, we take this moment just to give you thanks,” he prays in the commercial. “We thank you for this time to come together as a family, as friends, and as a country. Help us Lord, especially this Lent, to grow closer to you. Amen. Join us in prayer this Lent on Hallow. Stay prayed up.”

He previously spoke about his commitment to speaking about his faith in an interview with TODAY, saying, “It’s a balance. I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith. That’s an even bigger sin.”

“You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but I cannot deny my faith,” Wahlberg continued. “It’s important for me to share that with people. But I have friends from all walks of life and all different types of faiths and religions, so it’s important to respect and honor them as well.”

Movieguide® previously reported on how Wahlberg proclaims his faith in Hollywood:

Mark Wahlberg loves Jesus and he’s not afraid to tell his Hollywood colleagues about his faith.

“Look, I will not hide the fact that I love the Lord and I want to be committed to serving the Lord, but I also don’t jam it down anybody’s throat,” said Wahlberg on TODAY. “But it’s better to never have known God than to deny God. I mean, that’s not a good look. That’s not a good look.”

Wahlberg made similar comments stating that “faith is the most important thing.” The SPENCER CONFIDENTIAL actor also said his “faith puts things in perspective.”

Wahlberg values the power of prayer and frequently adds new people, even Hollywooders, to his list. “If I see somebody in public eye, or that I read in the newspaper somebody that’s struggling, somebody that has a child that’s having a health issue, stuff like that, I add them to my prayers, and I usually ended up keeping them in my prayers,” Wahlberg said.
