As one of today's most lauded actors, Denzel Washington could easily keep his faith quiet, but he refuses to do so.  

As the keynote speaker for a Church of God in Christ event, the pastor's son declared to the room (and now the world by way of the Internet), he will "get up and speak about what God has done" in his life. 

"There's never been a time where God didn't direct, protect, and correct me," Washington passionately attested. "There may have been times where I was less than faithful to Him, but He had faith in me." 

Earlier this year, the actor gave the commencement address to Dillard College and schooled Pentecostals on gratitude. Now, this.
