Julia Roberts Converts to Hinduism via filming Eat, Pray, Love

The news of her conversion gave me the chills. I had to read it for myself – here it is. How many more will follow her steps given her influence and fame?

NEW DELHI: Her parents were Baptist and Catholic and she was born in Georgia, part of the US Bible Belt. But Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts says she is now a practising Hindu. Speaking to the September issue of Elle magazine, Roberts said she goes to the temple to “chant, pray and celebrate.”

  2. mkayla, if she grew up Christian, then she too is part of the falling away. Falling away = from the truth. Nnothing surprises me with celebrities. They aren’t any more important than the next person. Most are vile creatures.

  3. Isn’t that unreal, I find it sad. Because many follow what these star do. They don’t look at it the way we do. Imagine how her parents feel.Same as Richard Gear he is Buda (I believe) and how many more have fallen away. What gets me especially when they have be raised in a Baptist home how could they. But its possible if one don’t stay in the word of God and start to drift. The years go by and the heart gets harder. So sad you wonder what next is it we are going to hear.

  4. No doubt she practices a sanitized, Americanized version of hinduism. I recently heard a woman from India – now a believer in Jesus- talk about the atrocities committed in the name of hinduism and the hopelessness and bondage that results from that system. I’m sure Ian could tell us all about it.

    So, from that perspective I hope she dives right in. I hope she goes to India again and really, really seeks out the roots and fruits of Hinduism. Then maybe she’ll see the deception.

    • I believe everyone does have the right or the option to worship whoever/whatever they choose. But in doing does not make it the correct choice. There is only one God and only one way to Him and that is Jesus Christ.
      John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

      Julia hasn’t done a great thing, but made a very dangerous choice.

  6. At least she’s being honest about what she’s doing. Others just say they’re praying………contemplatively…….but it’s the same one they’re both worshiping.

  7. hinduism is the only faith that truly understand life.

    first of all caste system in its conception was to control the people through division of labour to create society and culture. India for almost 5000years was the richest land on earth, romes treasury was emptied every year to indian kings in return for silk, spices, diamond jewellery so and so on. Roman governers would argue with their state for virutally giving away their wealth to india. Alexander the great went to india to find the riches and wisedom of the greatest civilisation india. The chinese culture is rooted in indian hindu, buddist , yoga culture…martial arts went from india to china, sankrit is the father language of all european langauges which was created in india, the wealth that made europe start the industrial revulution was looted from india. indian culture as never spread though wars, yet from iran to indonesia indian culture was readily adopted and taken, even to this day south east asia is deeply rooted to it……and to think their even evidence to sugget that jesus christ himself for the first 30 yrs of this life was educated in non violence, peace, tolreance by indian sadhus has merit….india never once used slavery and genocide never….that why tody africa is in a war between arab muslims and white christians by black african…a disgrace of ideology that kills millions. Indias poverty is diretly linked to the 150 yrs of british rule wher their literally ROBBED THE LAND DRY…india is the source..and if julia roberts goes to hinduism she will DEFINNTALY have faith in a system that has been part of mankind since the first days of civilisation. julia robeerts will truly understand life and its meaning with a cultre so deep so rich that no even muslims or christians where able to convert……….morally, spiritually,, and even socially india and its faith, hindu, buddist, sikh and jain are faaarrr superior in every way to abarhanic faiths..if jesus was alive today he will say he was a man of dharma……not abrham,

    • Arjen,

      I held your comment because I wanted to take the time to get some scriptures together. I don’t rely on man’s account of history or society’s riches to teach me the truth, but the bible, which is the word of God.

      In the first few instances I will include the link to an online bible so that you can read it for yourself. After that you can use it to check out the scriptures that follow. If you cannot work the links please let me know. It is important that I give an answer to you for what I believe.

      In the book of Genesis we are told that God created the heavens and the earth and all that dwells within. See link

      In Genesis 2 we are told of the creation of man and woman and marriage see link

      And according to Gen 2:26 – Then God said, “Let us…” the word us refers to Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who existed with God, as God from the very beginning. Jesus Christ IS God, not a man.

      In Chapter 3 is the account of the subsequent fall of man into sin for disobeying the command of God – see link

      In Gen 3:15 we are given the promise of a savior, which is Jesus Christ who will come and destroy the works of satan, the one responsible for the fall of man
      “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed and He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.”

      In Matthew 1:1 it states – The book of the geneology of Jesus Christ, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham. link

      The accounts of the people of God and the life of Jesus took place in Israel, not in India. Jesus is the Son of God who still lives today and would never claim to have been taught by anyone of another faith. If this is what you believe then you speak of another “jesus” and not the savior of mankind and not the God of creation. For Jesus said in Mark 13:6 For many will come in my name saying “I am He” and will deceive many. John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.

      John 8:23-24 23 And He said to them, “You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. 24 Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.”

      John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”

      Luke 5:32 I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.”

      Luke 24:7 The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified and the third day rise again.
      Luke 23 gives the account of the crucifixion of Jesus in which He died as a final sacrifice for the sin of all men everywhere throughout time. Continue reading in the following chapter where Jesus is found to have risen from the dead, an act only God can do.

      Acts 4:12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

      Colossians 2:13-15 13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. 15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

      Colossians 1:16-17 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.

      John 14:1-3 1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

      John 20:29-31 29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
      30 And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.

      Please take some time to consider the Savior who died for you to reconcile you to God. Hindu is not the answer, salvation through Jesus Christ is.
