THINK
by John Piper

Category: Christian Living

A few weeks ago I had a dream that I encountered Russell Crowe and tried to evangelize him. This is how it went:

It was afternoon time. I was walking out of the place that I work, Kumon Math, heading to the post office across the street when all of a sudden I see hundreds of people dancing in the parking lot of the shopping plaza that the post office is in. There were even mariachi bands all around, playing music as if the whole atmosphere was one big party. I wondered what the whole deal was about.

As I was walking the sidewalk, I saw a film camera on this sidewalk, shooting this entire festival scene. Behind the camera was director Ridley Scott. He was apparently shooting a new film. I didn’t know what the movie was about (although I assumed it was a contemporary ganster flick drama), but the cinematography looked amazing from what I saw behind the camera. As with most of Scott’s movies, the cinematography is always wondrous.

I walked down the street closer to the post office when I suddenly saw the film’s lead star, Russell Crowe. He had a particular hairdo and a suave outfit, as part of his character look for the movie. But I still knew it was him. After the director yelled cut, Russell and some of the film crew members walked back to the honey wagon trailers a couple blocks away. I decided that I wanted to use this opportunity to evangelize Russell Crowe, maybe even give him on those Good Person tracts from Way of the Master. I followed Russell from behind and said in a very kind way, “Oh Russell…Russell…”

To my surprise, Russell didn’t turn back and look at me. He waved his hand in a gesture of decline as he continued to march on. I was pretty hurt by this lack of respect, so I said, “Fine then. I just wanted to say that I’m a big fan of your work and I think you’re a great actor.”

At that moment, Mr. Crowe stopped for a split second. He turned his head slightly to me, nodded in acknowledgment and continued to walk on. Thus I didn’t get my chance to share the gospel with him.

This dream seriously makes me want to evangelize Russell Crowe now. I want to compare the real life results with that of my dream to see if Russell is really that unreceptive to common people like me. Who knows? Maybe he is, maybe he’s not. Regardless, we must pray for his salvation, like so many in Hollywood.

Though Crowe has had a slight history with his temper and uncouth behavior towards others, the Holy Spirit is the only One who can change him. How glorious this would be to see the man filled with unending love and selfless giving toward others.

May that dream become a reality.

I have officially set my autobiography book title. It’s going to be:

Hollywood Mission: Possible
Subtitle: Piercing the Darkness of a Decadent Industry
by Steve Cha

Sounds cool? It was either this or The Hollywood Commission, Piercing the Darkness of a Decadent Industry. If you have feedback, please share. I’ll keep you guys updated on the progress of the publishing. My publisher just finished the first edit of the manuscript, and it will go through a couple more polishing stages before going into typesetting, cover design, release, and all that good stuff. Hopefully the book will be out by August 2011. Please pray that it’ll go out wide in the world and influence new soul winners to enter Hollywood and win new souls to Christ!

THE COMING ECONOMIC ARMAGEDDON
by David Jeremiah

Category: Eschatology

I received word a few days ago about one of my Hollywood friends, Jonathan Khan, being fired from a show and from his calling agency because of his on-set proselytizing. It’s sad, but true. Hollywood does indeed look down on Christianity. Everybody can pretty much share what they believe about life, but people like Jonathan are not entitled to share what they believe about forgiveness in Christ.

News like this depresses me. With him and me just about gone from Hollywood, who else is going to step up to the plate to preach the gospel so boldly to the lost on set, whether to the common aspirer or celebrity? Join with me in prayer if this issue concerns you. Let us pray that God will raise up more laborers to send into Hollywood as missionaries so we may see the landscape changed around for His glory, at least in a small way before the Messiah’s return to this world.
