"And the job part is a load of malarkey: According to IMDB.com, since his conversion in 2003, Baldwin’s been in 27 movies, almost more than one-fourth of his total creative output in a career that began 24 years ago. That doesn’t suck, dude."*
Baldwin: So, we hired this lady from Brazil named Augusta, and the whole first week she's working for us she's singing in Portuguese, which she only spoke that language with my wife. She's singing about Jesus, and my wife comes to me in a few days and asks me, "Do you hear what she’s singing about? She’s singing about Jesus." My wife, after a few more days, approaches her. "I noticed your singing, and I’m wondering why every song is about Jesus?" Augusta had this very interesting reaction. She burst out laughing. My wife said, "What's so funny?" She said, "Quite frankly, I think it's a little bit funny that you think I’m here to clean your house."
Ross: Isn't this why you hired her?
Baldwin: She goes on to tell my wife that, before she had accepted the job, she prayed with her pastor and some church members in Brazil. She was told through a prophetic word that, if she went to live with the Baldwins, then one day Kenya and Stephen would come to faith in Jesus Christ and be involved in ministry.
Ross: She told all this to your wife?
Baldwin: I haven't told this part of the story a lot. She had a dream and saw me, saw my wife and saw my first daughter Aliya.
Ross: Now, how did you guys handle hearing this little bit of information?
Baldwin: Didn’t faze me for a second.
Stephen was convinced that 9/11 was a sign from the Lord. Which it may have been, though it's hard to believe that God caused all that tragedy just to inform one fairly successful actor that he should jack in his career and start skateboarding for Jesus.
Follow us and spread the word about "Restore Stephen Baldwin" on the social networks:
Baldwin has a tattoo on his left shoulder of the initials "HM" for Hannah Montana. He got the tattoo after making a pact with Miley Cyrus that he would be allowed to cameo on the show if he had the initials tattooed on him. He revealed the tattoo to Cyrus at a book signing in Nashville, on November 10, 2008. To date he has never appeared on the show. He has since gone on record as saying that he regrets getting the tattoo.
Stephen Baldwin of the famous “Baldwin Brothers” Hollywood clan is a veteran actor who has starred in over 60 films and TV shows. He is no stranger to the Hollywood life of glitz, glamour and the public eye.
In 2002, he had an experience that changed his life forever. He became a Born Again Christian, giving his life to Jesus Christ. Over the next few years, he became very vocal about his faith, using his spotlight to boldly preach the gospel. However, because of his convictions it has caused him the loss of many jobs and the most recently, a highly publicized bankruptcy.
He has been publicly ridiculed and insulted by people who think that he has been abandoned by God. A simple search through the internet will reveal that people not only mock Stephen, but mock God.
The donations that the site gets, they're meant to go to you directly, or to their cause?
Well, as a result of my decision that I made as my born-again Christian faith -- again, I take full responsibility of that. I'm a big boy and I made that choice. I made the choice to no longer participate in playing those roles in the past, it affected my income. I was easily making a million and a half to two million bucks a year and living pretty dang good. So again, if I was willing to play roles in the past where the content allowed for me to use certain bad language or participate in scenes that had certain sexual content -- I'm feeling like I just don't want to play those roles anymore.
