Popular actor Denzel Washington joined a pastor on Instagram live and shared an experience he had with the Holy Spirit when he gave his life to Christ.
"I was filled with the Holy Ghost, and it scared me. I said, 'Wait a minute; I didn't want to go this deep, I want to party,'" Washington told the pastor with a laugh.
Washington experienced the moment at West Angeles Church of God in Los Angeles in the early 1980s.
This was one of three times the actor says he gave his life to Jesus.
"I went to church with Robert Townsend, and when it came time to come down to the altar I said, 'You know this time, I'm just going to go down there and give it up and see what happens.' I went in the prayer room and gave it up and let go and experienced something I've never experienced in my life. I remember calling my mother afterwards and asking her, I said, 'Well, you know it felt like I was going up in the air, and my cheeks were filled,' and she said, 'Oh no, that's the devil you're purging.'
"It was a supernatural, once in this lifetime experience that I couldn't completely understand at the time," Washington added.
He explained that along with not being able to understand it at the time, he also wasn't ready to live out his commitment.
