Actor Mike C. Manning, best known as a cast member on MTV shows "The Real World D.C." and "Teen Wolf," as well as Disney Channel's "Cloud 9," explained why he felt like he needed to star in a Christian film during this time in his life.
Manning plays Adam in the latest installment of "God's Not Dead: A Light in Darkness," which is in theaters now. The young actor, who is also a producer and activist, said that Christianity has made a major positive impact in his life.
"I, for one, have seen religion do amazing things in the lives of people very close to me. There have been many times where I've turned to God for help and guidance and support, and He was there for me through those struggles," Manning said in a recent interview with The Christian Post. "I think at its core, Christianity is about love and kindness and living the example of Jesus. But there are things that happen that sometimes distract the world, and particularly our country, away from that core."
"I think creating content like this is important to generating that dialogue, to examine ourselves once in a while and ask, 'How am I helping the world? Am I doing enough? Am I living the example of Jesus?'" he added.
