Patricia Heaton shared a message about faith amid the confusion and chaos of the past few days.
On Friday, the “Everybody Loves Raymond” and “The Middle” actress took to Twitter to lament that common sense is hard to find right now.
“If you’re a common sense person, you probably don’t feel you have a home in this world right now,” she wrote. “If you’re a Christian, you know you were never meant to.”
In response to a commenter that disagreed with her, the actress clarified her religious stance, explaining that Christians believe their existence is in many ways a stepping stone to eternal life.
“Respectfully, this world is only temporary. I love many things here too, and yes, we are called to love our neighbor and be good stewards. But this ain’t it,” Heaton explained.
She added in a follow-up comment: “We are meant to serve Christ while we are here.”
The actress is often outspoken about her faith on social media, typically calling for unity and common sense, often putting a religious spin on the issues of the day. In September, she warned her fellow Christian followers to expect “breathtaking ignorance” from political pundits ahead of the November election and the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Prior to that, the actress struck a more combative tone in February in a rebuke of the Democratic Party that she alleged “champions abortion.”
John 17:14-26 KJV – “I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world”
1 John 2:15-17 KJV – “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.”
