Mr. T Points People to Scripture Amid Pandemic: ‘We are Fighting 2 Contagious Deadly Virus[es]!’
By Movieguide® Staff
Former professional wrestler and actor Mr. T uses his platform to share his Christian faith and encourage his followers amid the pandemic.
“We are fighting 2 contagious deadly virus[es]! One is COVID-19 and the other is hate!” Mr. T wrote via Twitter. “We got vaccinations for COVID and the love of God for all the haters!”
Mr. T shares a constant stream of Scripture references on his Twitter and reflects on how God’s word relates to today. Mr. T is vocal about his faith and does not shy away from calling others to seek peace and truth in Christ.
Recently, he offered this insight on the COVID-19 vaccine: “The vaccine works when it’s injected into our arm! The love of God works when you invite Him into your Heart!”
Mr. T, who coined his famous slogan “I pity the fool…,” surrendered his life to Christ while helping in the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in 2005.
“Back in the day, I had money, cars. I had achieved what I wanted to achieve and then everything really stopped,” Mr. T said in 2017 on DANCING WITH THE STARS.
“I called on God. I said, ‘God, give me strength to do your will.’ That’s when it really hit me: What’s really real? My faith in God, that was real, because only God could save me,” he added.
Now, he’s working to share the Good News of salvation to others.
