Rob Schneider Gives Life to Jesus: With Faith, ‘Nothing Can Rock You’

By Movieguide® Contributor

While he’s known for his roles in GROWN UPS and THE BENCHWARMERS, Rob Schneider has recently spoken up about his newfound faith in Jesus Christ.

Now, Schneider feels called to leave behind his old way of comedy, and he isn’t concerned about what people think.

“I know I can’t do the same stuff I used to do,” Schneider told the Christian Post. “Not because I have anything against what I did; I did what I did, and I felt fine about it at the time. I’m not going to judge myself. But I won’t do the same stuff I’ve done. I don’t know what I’m going to do…I want to come to it from a place of faith, a place of something good in my heart.”

He explained that his faith has impacted how he talks.

“I don’t know if I can tell dirty jokes anymore,” he added. “I don’t know if I can. I don’t know if I’m going to. I have an act I’m doing now; I don’t know if I’ll do it again next year. Just some of the bad words, I go, ‘Maybe I don’t want to say those words anymore.’ I don’t know. I also think it’s important to not only talk to the converted but to bring people in, and the best form is to show by example. People talk all the time; that doesn’t mean anything. So I hope that [by] me standing up for what I believe in — God, family, country — I’m OK with whatever comes my way, positive or negative. When you have faith, nothing can really rock you.”

Schneider announced his newfound faith on X. He wrote, “As I am a new convert to Catholicism, I offer my apology for my lack of Christ’s forgiveness to my fellow man. I was so angry at the people who shut down schools and indeed the world and who coerced others to do things against their will which hurt many people deeply. I offer my unconditional forgiveness and amnesty.”

“At last, it is forgiveness itself that is the gift that we give ourselves because it frees us as The Christ intends for all of us to be free. For His gift of ultimate and unlimited forgiveness is indeed the gift for all humanity,” Schneider concluded.

Now that Schneider is free in Christ, he doesn’t feel a part of Hollywood anymore.

“I don’t feel a part of Hollywood,” he admitted to The Christian Post. “I don’t feel any obligation to Hollywood whatsoever. I don’t feel like I’m from Hollywood. I’m just an actor and made my living for a long time there. I feel no sense of loyalty or disloyalty to Hollywood. Let them do whatever they want. I don’t feel the same fear that they feel.”

“I’m not speaking for all of Hollywood, but what I noticed is that there’s a fearfulness to speak the truth and to talk about what people believe in and what they want,” he added. “I think a lot of it is self-motivated and protecting themselves. You’re always going to be missing something if you’re led by fear.”

Movieguide® previously reported on Schneider’s conversion:

Comedian Rob Schneider revealed that he recently converted to Catholicism, finding freedom from the hatred that has ruled his life.

“At 60 you realize the very brevity of life and temporariness of it all. A humbling knowledge that there is indeed a time limit for all things and that God’s design through perfect, is precious beyond its brevity,” Schneider posted on X, formerly Twitter, reflecting on his life.

“As I am a new convert to Catholicism, I offer my apology for my lack of Christ’s forgiveness to my fellow man,” he added, revealing that he has held on to a lot of hatred from things done during the pandemic.

“I was so angry at the people who shut down schools and indeed the world and who coerced others to do things against their will which hurt many people deeply. I offer my unconditional forgiveness and amnesty,” he said.
