Last Friday, I listened to a conference call between ministry leaders and Sylvester Stallone. He talked about his Christian faith and described himself as being “reborn” and dependent on church life for help in his spiritual walk.
Stallone also talked about the plot of the new Rocky Balboa movie as having a Christian theme. And, believe it or not, an upcoming Rambo 4 movie will have an even more overt Christian plot. Apparently, Rambo will also be reborn after encountering group of persecuted Christian missionaries in Burma.
UPDATE: If you find this fascinating, you can listen to the whole telephone conversation.
Sad, that more don't see through the trick, but oh well.
If you get a chance to see the original Rocky (I) movie, check out the opening scene. It proves that he meant to portray the character as a Christian from the very first frame. Perhaps now, at the twilight of his career as a film maker, he feels at liberty to make it more obvious.
I always thought that the character of Rocky is Christian -- never mind whether Stallone has lived a Christian life.
Listen though to the audio file link above -- it says it all.
sincere or not--if the Message gets out-the "slopping" masses will want to watch it. because believe it or not, that's what they need.
