In this section we hope to make sense of the decisions celebrities do every day. There are many celebrities who value their faith and also are public with what they believe. As we’ve seen on social media and in entertainment news sometimes they have actions that don’t align with what we think they value.
Imagine now all of the decisions you have made in your life. Imagine the people we had to apologize to and the falls we had up the stairs. Now unlike you, celebrities have to deal with the same thing but in the public eye. Of course, their career is their choice but I’m guessing no one can imagine how far the media will take to get their ratings. Those who work for the media have also chosen their career choice. The celebrity and the media understand clearly that they need each other. If you did not know, one needs the other for ratings and the other to keep their celebrity A-status.
So, have you ever wanted to be famous? If you would like to be famous and be in a constant relationship with Christ I truly believe it’s impossible without making horrible decisions BUT, if you would love to be an actor, singer or model and you don’t mind whatever fame that brings then this is a career choice you can still make. You see, when you want fame and to be in the public eye you have to do things that have people talk about you. This may have you sacrifice your ethics. So, before you pick your choice, think about this. Is shooting for fame worth your relationship with Christ?
Let’s shoot for becoming a great singer, model or actor and not worry about the fame or fortune. If you choose fame and fortune before your career choice you can definitely be sure that the media will portray your life the way they want to and if you would like to be a good example for the public that choice will not work.
Think about Will Smith and his family. Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith had been attacked about cheating on Will Smith with Jennifer Lopez’s now Ex-husband, Marc Anthony. Had Will listened to the media he most likely would have gone through and divorced Jada but they have both shared that this was a rumor that was not true and it was simply their turn to be picked at with divorce rumors. It’s your choice what you do with the media. This action that they took clearly lets us know that they are not where they are for the fame, fortune and publicity. They truly enjoy acting and modeling and want to be great examples to the public and other celebrities.
With that, this section is really for those searching to reach the stars with the gift God gave them. Next issue we will pick a celebrity and pick at their biography and recent choices. If you have any in mind please send your request to email@example.com and have the subject line state: Christian Celeb Request.
