Many of you may not know that Stephen Colbert is a follower of Christ. He’s an ordained minister. He still teaches Sunday School. He is a man of deep faith. So when we first saw this video show up in our newsfeeds it got us a bit excited. The host of “The Late Show” opened up last night with superstar Oprah Winfrey on some Biblical knowledge. What happens will leave you smiling. Both Oprah and Stephen go into some pretty sweet Biblical insight that even made us go look up the verses and ponder what they said.
Don’t take our words for it, watch this!
For many moons late night talk shows have tended to gravitate towards funny moments. After all, it’s not very often a late night show moves into talking faith. Faith isn’t normally interesting to this crowd. But, Stephen is different. Stephen brings a sense of awe when he talks about faith, because his faith is real. His authenticity is genuine. Last night was a breath of fresh air to us. We hope this is only the start of making faith in Christ mainstream on late night talk shows, and not the poking fun of kind.
God bless you Stephen and Oprah! This leaves us with one BURNING question….
When are we getting “The Bible Hour” with Stephen Colbert and Oprah Winfrey show? Don’t hate, you would totally watch that too.
