Sean Hannity Opens Up about His Faith: 'I'm An Aspiring Christian'

TrĂ© Goins-Phillips : Dec 11, 2019

"At the end of the day, even though you have politics that are awful, and even though life is tough ... there's nobody that gets through this life without struggle, trials, hardship, loss ... for me, this [God's Word] is where I go to get centered." -Sean Hannity

"I was raised a Catholic," Hannity told Faithwire. "I wouldn't say I'm a Catholic anymore, but let's put it this way: I'm an aspiring Christian."

The 57-year-old Fox News host, who opens up about his faith in an upcoming episode of "Ainsley's Bible Study" on the streaming platform Fox Nation, said a lot of people seem to misunderstand what it means to be a Christian. To trust in God, Hannity said, is to admit "we're flawed, that we sin, that we're imperfect."

He pointed to the fact that, throughout Scripture, Jesus is seen spending time with people who are a little rough around the edges. A fan of "Wicked Tuna," Hannity said he figures the anglers Jesus spent His time with were probably just as gritty as the fishermen on the National Geographic show.

Jesus, he added, wanted to spend His time with the outcasts. Over the phone, Hannity admitted he has "a finely tuned conscience" and is aware of when he does something wrong, noting he tries to set aside a few minutes each day to reflect on God and Scripture. And even amid his mess ups, he remembers Jesus didn't spend His time with polished religious leaders; he spent His days on earth with people who "weren't exactly refined and sophisticated."

"He seemed to love the forgotten men and women of His time," Hannity said of the people Jesus pursued during His earthly ministry.

The Bible makes it clear the Gospel is big enough for people who don't fit into a neat, cookie cutter mold—though we should always strive to be more like Jesus... Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
