Ben Affleck opens up about becoming a Christian

Hollywood actor  and producer Ben Affleck has opened up about his Christian faith while promoting his new film, “The Way Back.”

“I go to the Methodist Church, [my] kids [are] baptized and I got introduced to Christianity a little bit later in life,” the Academy Award winner told Beliefnet.

Four years ago after filming “Miracles from Heaven,” Jennifer Garner, Affleck’s ex-wife, returned to church four and shortly after invited Affleck to attend service with her and their children. He has since kept to the faith.

In “The Way Back,” Affleck plays Jack Cunningham, a man who is down and out and searching for hope. He finds that hope when offered a job to coach basketball at his Catholic high school where he once excelled as a player. The movie is centered around his road to making amends with the people he hurt most by his destructive behavior as a result of alcohol.

In the interview, a newly sobered Affleck reflected on the “beauty” he’s found in the Christian gifts of grace and forgiveness.

“One of the things that I found most beautiful about it, and I struggle with my faith, I struggle with belief, but I do see there’s something enormously beautiful and elegant about the notion that we are all sinners, and that it’s our job to find our redemption, to find God’s love, to redeem ourselves, to live the best life that we can, to love one another, to not judge one another, and to forgive one another,” Affleck said.

  24. I operate a vape shop website directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that also offers for sale CBD items. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape store directory. We do not sell CBD items like CBD oil. We only offer promotion and marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health Retailer and if you take a good look, you will witness that they offer a fairly comprehensive range of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment method. It emerges that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different firms. As a result of this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related web site. This has constricted my payment possibilities and right now, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken to a solicitor from a Magic Circle law office in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is completely illegal and discriminatory as it should be applying an uniform standard to all firms. I am yet to talk with yet another legal representative from a US law office in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
