Kelsey Grammer Says Jesus has Made a BIG Difference in his Life and He Won’t Apologize for his Faith

Allen Kelsey Grammer won’t apologize for his faith.

In a recent interview, the 68-year-old actor, best known for her role as Dr. Fraiser Crane on the NBC sitcom, Cheers and Fraiser, opened up about his faith and how it helped him through his tough times.

Speaking to USA Today, Kelsey said that Jesus has helped him through his difficult times and made a big difference in his life.

“I’ve had hiccups. I’ve had some tragic times. I have wrestled with those and worked my way through them.”

“Sometimes rejecting faith, sometimes rejecting God even, in a period of being pretty angry about it,” he added. “Like, “Where were you?” That kind of thing. But I have come to terms with it and have found great peace in my faith and in Jesus.”

The Jesus Revolution star continued, “It’s not cavalier – Jesus made a difference in my life. That’s not anything I will apologize for.”

He said he and his wife saw their life changing from bad to good times only because of their faith in God.

“It’s really uplifting. It’s a good movie. My wife and I saw it together. She was just dissolved in tears and said, “It’s the best thing you’ve ever done.’”

The star’s latest film, Jesus Revolution is a faith-based comedy-drama. The story revolves around a youth minister whose encounter with Pastor Chuck Smith (Kelsey’s character) helps him spread the Christian movement in the society.

The film shows the era of the 1960s and the 1970s.

According to Daily Mail, “Despite being described as ‘bland’ and a ‘slog’ by some reviewers the movie has proved a hit with American audiences, with a UK release date yet to be announced.”

“It’s been reported analysts had believed the Liongate release to earn between $6M and $7M during it’s first weekend, only to smash all expectations.” 

Kelsey’s sentiments about Faith are quite similar to that of Mark Wahlberg who recently said that Faith is not popular in Hollywood.

During a recent appearance on the Today Show, Wahlberg talked about his faith and how it has disciplined him.

“That discipline has afforded me so many other things,” he said.

“I want to share that with people. So whether that’s with fasting, working out more, detaching from other things, and just spending more time with God in prayer or in thoughtful reflection and those things are important.”

He was wearing an Ash cross on his forehead to mark Ash Wednesday – the first day of Lent on the Christian calendar.

“[Faith] is everything, it’s afforded me so many things. God didn’t come to save the saints. He came to save the sinners…We want to be better versions of ourselves, and through focusing my faith, it’s allowed me to do that,” he told host, Savannah Guthrie.

The ted star said that it’s all about the perfect balance between faith and professionalism.

“I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith,” he continued. “That’s an even bigger sin. You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but, you know, I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people. I have friends from all walks of life and all different types of faiths and religions, so you know, it’s important to respect and honor them as well.”

Insisting that religion and faith are not popular in the industry and most people don’t care, Mark said he cannot deny his faith.

“You know, it’s not popular in my industry, but I cannot deny my faith. It’s important for me to share that with people. But, I have friends from all walks of life and all different types of faiths and religions, so it’s important to respect and honor them as well.”
