Comedian Russell Brand announces he is getting baptized: ‘I’m taking the plunge’

"What's been explained to me is it's an opportunity to die and be reborn."


Actor and comedian Russell Brand revealed on Friday that he has decided to "take the plunge" and get baptized.

In a video posted on X, Brand asked his audience about their experience getting baptized. He said, "At the moment, I'm very curious as to what you who have been baptized, feel about it, what your expectations are of the event prior, and what it's actually like?"

"What's been explained to me is it's an opportunity to die and be reborn," He continued. "An opportunity to leave the past behind and be reborn in Christ's name, like it says in Galatians. That you can live as an enlightened and awakened person to summarize."

There have been several high-profile people who have reclaimed their faith recently, which Brand addressed in his statements.

"I know a lot of people sort of cynical about the increasing interest in Christianity and the return to God."

"To me, it's obvious," Brand continued. "As meaning deteriorates in the modern world as our value systems and institutions crumble, all of us become increasingly aware that there is this eerily familiar awakening and beckoning figure. We've all know all of our lives within us and around us."

"For me, it's very exciting," he expressed.

In January, Brand posted a video explaining why he wears a cross and revealed that he had been reading the bible more. "I need a personal relationship with God," he said in the video.

"It occurred to me, that if instead of always talking to myself inwardly I could replace one of those voices with an indwelling god," Brand added.

Last September, Brand's content was demonetized on YouTube after an anonymous allegation of sexual misconduct surfaced from a time when he was admittedly promiscuous. Many, such as Rose McGowen, questioned the accusations and questioned the reasons for news outlets to smear the comedian.

"I think what's being done right now in the Russell Brand case with the Guardian and the other news outlets is part of a concerted effort to turn the public in general, against anybody who comes out and one of the reasons and ways they're doing this is a concerted effort to bend journalistic rules that have always been in place such as having to be on the record with who you are and what your name is, in order to accuse," McGowen said at the time.
