When the world has set up actor and martial arts expert Chuck Norris as the ultimate symbol of strength, here’s a few of the things the action hero, now 77, has said about his faith in something even greater.
According to Norris, ‘I gave my life to the Lord at 12. I was baptised at 12. Then it grew stronger. And when I got to go to a crusade for Billy Graham, unfortunately a lot of times in the entertainment industry, sometimes you lose sight of what’s really important in your life. I lost a marriage because of it.’
The actors I meet that have their faith, you can see a brightness in their eyes. And the ones that don’t have it, you can see that darkness in their eyes. So, I just say try it. Try your faith. Just try it out and see if it works for you – I know it will and it worked for me.’
He’s the Karate champion turned actor, whose name is now synonymous with unbeatable macho strength. He’s the focus of a thousand Internet memes which suggest he possesses almost infinite, God-like abilities… but when the man himself speaks, he often uses the opportunity to talk about his own hero: Jesus Christ.
