On Sunday March 1 2020, Ben Affleck attended a Mosaic church service led by nationally renowned and well-respected Senior Pastor Erwin McManus. Following the service, Pastor Erwin conducted an intimate interview with Ben in support of his new film “The Way Back” where they discussed Ben’s past struggles, faith, grace, family life, and the necessity for second chances.
Who pays for the sins of the parents? Often the children do.
Some highlights from the interview:
- Ben still attends church every Sunday with his ex wife Jennifer Garner and their 3 children.
- He talks about his faith and having doubts when he struggles or suffers in life.
- His faith helped his recovery process from alcoholism.
- One of the most powerful moments for me was hearing him talk about the teaching of redemption at his church. He shared how we’re all flawed and we’re all are going to make mistakes. it’s not about the mistakes that we will make, but about how we rise above it, get passed it, and aspire to be a better person even in the midst of our circumstances.
“Judge me by my successes and not my failures, because we’re all going to fail.”
The Way Back is in theaters Friday, March 6th.
