WATCH: Comedian And Actor Russell Brand Announces Baptism

Comedian and actor Russell Brand has announced he is getting baptized this Sunday.

Brand, long known for his focus on spiritual views and role in shifting the Overton Window, announced via social media on Friday:

Brand emphasized the lack of compelling values and meaning in the modern world as the main drivers behind his conversion. Breitbart quoted Brand as saying:

“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 that we’ve all known all of our lives within us and around us. And for me, it’s very exciting.”

The podcast host and celebrity previously expressed his interest in Christianity and his desire to form a personal relationship with Christ.

Christian news sites and influencers welcomed Brand and attempted to give him the answers he sought as he converted to Christianity.

Brand previously expressed his need for God, according to Fox News:

“Like many desperate people, I need spirituality. I need God, or I cannot cope in this world. I need to believe in the best in people.

I need to believe that there are new alliances possible, new ways of us communicating, because I see atrophying and corrupt systems delivering yet more misery to people, and I think it’s increasingly necessary that we find new ways of framing the conversation and looking into our hearts when we’re speaking.”
