No matter what, you can overcome your past,” he said. “With help, if you look to God, you can overcome your past and be reborn.”Hmm. That’s an interesting quote. You may be wondering who said it. Sounds like it would be from a prominent evangelical leader, or maybe someone with a powerful testimony, or perhaps a youth pastor hoping to break through to a crowded room of young people.
Or, would you believe, Rocky Balboa?
Or, to be more accurate, Sylvester Stallone, the actor who created and starred in the iconic series of films about the down-and-out boxer who became the heavyweight champion of the world â€” several times over several movies.
Stallone spoke of being reborn in a teleconference with pastors and religious leaders concerning the faith elements of the unlikely sixth movie that’s due out Dec. 22.
Hopefully it’s just not a ploy to try to sell movie tickets.
Thanks for the link, Bone!
