In an interview with Page Six, Hollywood actor Chris Pratt, 43, shared how Jesus helped Pratt deal with the haters.
Pratt came to the Lord after receiving a prophetic word from a Messianic Jew that he was destined for great things while standing outside a liquor store in Hawaii. Two weeks later, Pratt, who worked as a waiter, had a Hollywood director come into the restaurant where he worked for a meal.
Over the years, Pratt has been outspoken about his faith and has come under intense criticism for it. Left-wing trolls on social media have tried to cancel him from any future Marvel roles claiming he radiated ‘homophobic white Christian supremacist energy.’

When Page Six reporter, Nicki Gostin, asked Pratt how he dealt with this criticism, the actor of ‘Jurassic World’ fame quickly turned to Jesus and the Bible.
“I sure do but that’s nothing new, that’s nothing new, you know?” the actor, 43, told Page Six exclusively Monday at a Cinema Society screening of his upcoming Marvel movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
Pratt reiterated his point by quoting biblical scripture.
“If I was of this world, they would love me just like that but as it is, I’ve chosen out of this world. That’s John 15:18 through 20,” he shared.
“That’s the way it is, nothing new, 2,000 years ago they hated him, too,” he added, referencing Jesus Christ.
