    Oh if only He Would turn his heart around and Actually Search for Jehovah Then would he find treasures more beautiful th anything he’s known. But Luke 8:4-15 tells us it’s what we choose once hearing Gods word. That determines if we get Real Life according to John 17:3.

      pshaw k…uh…right…pretty judgemental of you to suppose he has no faith just because we are talking about a man’s success. Yet you need to find a way to align a conversation to your agenda. Absurd, and Pointless

        Not absurd and not pointless and not saying he has no faith. Looks like the pot calling the kettle black regarding judgment However ur right about this being a bad idea. However I have no agenda. Just know enough about the bigger picture to be concerned for many.

      He does know God and specifically, Jesus not Jehovah. He even posed on Twitter with a Jesus T-shirt. Such a shame, that people are quick to judge before checking their facts! Next, time do some research before assuming that people don’t know God or worship him…

      Joyce, while I respect ALL beliefs and concepts regarding God, aka Jesus Christ aka the Holy Spirit aka The Bless Trinity…how do you know The Roc has not already done so? Duwayne is obviously being blessed for his perseverance and his positive attitude. No, I do not fully know Mr. Johnson’s background but why should that matter? The past is the past…Jesus does not care how many times we fall down, He, is only concerned about if we keep getting up and keep trying. My sister in Christ, if you want to quote scripture, let us discuss God privately, for if you know enough about scripture to quote, you should also know that in John 8:7 the meaning of casting the first stone right? Look, I would love to discuss scripture with you away from this page. For Christians can discuss scripture because when we speak of Jesus, he will be present. But this is not the right venue. This is a motivational page/website and it hopes to encourage, inspire and motivate others with a great a successful example as Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson has displayed. Please sister, excuse me for saying so, but we are not to publicly chastise one another, correct each other yes, but your comments can be read as chastising. By the way, Dwayne admits to have 7$ in his pocket. Isn’t 7 a sacramental number? The Seven last words of Jesus on the cross? I love you sister, I love this newly discovered website, and I like Dwayne Johnson,…very inspiring. If I have offended you, this page or any other person who reads this, I am sorry. I am simply trying to defend an inspirational public figure. Thanks.
