Oprah Winfrey learns Sabbath is actually on Saturday from Adventist movie executive

How trusting God made this Adventist a vice-president in Hollywood - asabbathblog.com

Let's say one day you meet a celebrity and he or she asks you what your religion is. How would you answer?


Would you be worried about what they'd think of you? Would you be afraid your answer might make them feel uncomfortable?


Would you say you're a Christian or would you say you're a Seventh-day Adventist? Would you beat around the bushes or be straight up? Would you be superficial or passionate?


DeVon Franklin is a Seventh-day Adventist. But get this: he's also the senior vice-president of production at Columbia Pictures. This guy has supervised big films such as the "The Pursuit of Happyness" and the 2010 version of "The Karate Kid."


A few months ago, Franklin was a guest on Oprah Winfrey's "Super Soul Sunday." There, he got the chance to share with Winfrey how God has led him throughout his life.


At one point, Oprah asked him what his religion was. Devon Franklin then explained he was raised Seventh-day Adventist and keeps Saturday as the Sabbath.


Check out what happened next in the video below:




"I was so moved by his passion and commitment to faith while functioning in the lion's den of entertainment," Winfrey wrote.


Franklin also shared with Oprah two ways you can choose to look at problems in your life.




DeVon Franklin, being a movie producer, encourages people to think of their lives as though it were a movie. God is the director and you are working with God to write the script of your life. You are the main character.




We definitely recommend you watch the entire episode. It's really good!

What a very interesting interview, and what he said really about that if you go to apply to a job and that job seems the best for you but doesn't respect your faith of keeping the Sabbath , it is that , that job it's not the best for you, because only God will open the door of a job that will help you too strengthed your faith. This comment for sure enlighted my mind and heart and I will always remember it, that I need to have faith in the Lord at any time.
