‘It’s Been A Big Change:’ Russell Brand Shares His Experience After Converting To Christianity

gil

’ve been a Christian a month now and it’s been a big change,” he said. “Not that I’ve entirely changed as a person, of course I haven’t, but I’ve taken on a lot of new concepts and it changes you to accept that it’s not like you’re in a game show and by doing really, really good things, you can get redeemed.”

The comedian and podcast host made the remarks in a video posted to social media where he shared what his experience has been like thus far into his new journey.

He continued:

“No, repentance, to repent, means that you have to continually change and acknowledge that I am in a battle against myself. That I need to surrender myself to an ever-present eternal and accessible Jesus. That mercy is something that’s given to me, been granted to me, that I live with through love, not something that I can sort of win or achieve by doing good deeds.”

He said that he’s enjoyed reading Christian literature and that he has a sense of peace now that he did not have before.

“When I’m in doubt, I feel the instruction is there, accessible, and I feel like I know what I am supposed to do and when I don’t do what I am supposed to do, that is even clearer,” he said. “When I feel myself being selfish or inconsiderate or putting myself first or not thinking about how I can be better to other people, it is as if there is an inner illumination available to me now.”

“I love the simplicity of the idea of God coming to Earth as a man to experience what it is to be human and to sacrifice himself because that is the only sacrifice that could bring us home, that could give us the opportunity for redemption. I like the idea, when I am in prayer and in communion just alone, that there is a figure available, wounded and coronated, available to me. In my failings, in my failures, and in my fallibility, there is strength to be broken. Not just broken by life in the sense of life is rearing and exhausting, but to be broken in the same way that you have to train an animal to behave itself, to be broken into better conduct. It is a beautiful journey to go on.”
