Will Smith (Confusion of Christianity and Scientology

While there has been much speculation about the couple's ties to Scientology, Smith has never publicly said he is a Scientologist.

Last month, Smith was quoted as saying, “I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions. And I respect all people and all paths.”

In December, interviewed on "Access Hollywood," Smith said of his Scientology connection: “I was introduced [to] it by Tom [Cruise], and I’m a student of world religion. I was raised in a Baptist household, I went to a Catholic school, but the ideas of the Bible are 98 percent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 percent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism.”


Quotes from here (Will Smith Funds Private Scientology School).

Sound like there's any confusion here? Seems pastors today need to be sure not to neglect one of their basic roles: to EXPLAIN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE CHRISTIAN and distinguish what is not. Seems there is recurring confusion in this area especially among Hollywood celeb's.

  1. Do you think he will make 98% of the way to salvation!

  2. "I am a Christian. I am a student of all religions."
    Uh, yeah, these two statements of his are definitely antithetical.
    He is contradicting himself, even though he doesn't realize it.


    "...the ideas of the Bible are 98 percent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 percent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism.”
    Well, Will, if you were on a game show, and that was your final answer, you would lose, because you would be wrong.

    Will, you are a great actor, and I have really liked some of your movies, but we who are Christians really need to pray for your salvation, because right now, you are headed for an eternity in Hell, unless you repent and turn to Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Jesus alone can help you. Tom Cruise cannot help you. Scientology will only lead you to Hell. Buddhism will only lead you to Hell. Hinduism will only lead you to Hell. Christ Jesus, the Messiah, the Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity, is the ONLY way to Heaven. There is no other way.
