Chris Pratt brother faith

Chris Pratt isn’t afraid to be himself. The A-lister doesn’t bend to Hollywood’s cultural demands and that’s why so many of us love him. He even regularly proclaims his faith at award shows! Now, his brother is speaking out about the family’s Christian faith in a refreshing way that completely defies Tinseltown’s culture.

The Pratt Brothers

Cully Pratt had a very honest conversation about Chris on “The Billy Hallowell Podcast.” He validated that the Chris we have seen praise God in front of millions is not performing. He truly believes in Jesus and lives a Christian-centered life which grounds him in the face of Hollywood debauchery.

The older brother reports the Jurassic Park star is an open book regarding his faith and is regularly willing to share his love for the Lord with others.

“He really stands behind everything that he believes and values and I respect that the most about him,” Cully said.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom!! You were always there to shower us with unconditional love and affection. Always. Thank you. You taught me how to act- (You should have seen the over the top performance she’d put on when my brother, sister or I would clean the house.) She’s always been proud of all her kids. No matter what she’s had our backs. There was never a question in any of our lives whether or not we were loved. Ever. You made us confident. You gave us grit. You kept us grounded. You gave us hair cuts and made us meals. You worked your ass off checking groceries for years, for us. You consistently whoop our butts in poker, cribbage, rummy and every other game. I love you more than anything. Happy Mother’s Day.

Combining Faith and Creativity

Religion and the arts are important to the Pratt family. Cully, who is an Army veteran and police officer, is also an artist. He combines his faith and creative abilities in his art. When he gave Chris a dump tray featuring Jesus and Philippians 4:13, the star shared it on Instagram.

Cully was suddenly flooded with orders after his younger brother’s fans were so moved by the beautiful Christian piece that reads, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

So my brother, @cullypratt makes these awesome pocket dump trays. We all need a place to throw our wallets, keys, cell-phones, lighters, pistols or whatever else we keep in your pocket so you know exactly where it is the next day. Well he wanted to make me one and asked me what I wanted on it. I went for the usual chris answer, American bald eagle smoking a cigar, holding a machine gun and an American flag whirling all bad ass in the wind maybe with some nunchucks or something. But then I thought a lot about being homesick. I’d like having a touchstone that I could take with me as I travel on the road for work. Something less straight up bad ass hero and more homesick in need of comfort. So I though about this great bible verse Philippians 4:13 which I’ve relied on for strength from time to time. And he knocks this thing out in like a day!! Reclaimed wood and a wood burner. All by hand. He does all kinds of awesome art stuff and in proud of him. He’s so awesome and you should follow him. He’s a unique individual and my best friend. An army veteran and a sheriffs deputy who has seen a lot of shit in his life but gets up everyday to go to work and help people having bad days cause he’s a real hero. A hero who loves to make something out of nothing with his bare hands. He’s very good and when we were kids he used to make me smell his finger and I always fell for it and I wore his clothes and worshiped him and I still do to this day. Thanks to my big brother from the same mother for my awesome #cullypepper dump tray. It’s my favorite thing I have.

In addition to catapulting Cully’s business, Chris shared the family’s love of Christ with his 21 million followers. Some of them may have never been truly exposed to Jesus’ message before.

Chris has been very successful, in part, because he’s very relatable to everyday people. He is not pretentious like many Hollywood stars and he’s not afraid to show his true colors to the world.

Supporting Each Other in Faith

“[Chris] has got something really, really, really incredible about him and it’s not just the fact he’s a funny guy or a tall, good-looking guy,” the older Pratt brother said. “Everybody can kind of look at that and figure that out. He’s just kind of got that ‘it’ factor and he’s always had it from the time he [was] a child.”

Cully Pratt’s appearance on “The Billy Hollowell Podcast” can be heard below. If you are a Chris Pratt fan, you will enjoy this firsthand perspective from his older brother.
