      Really?

      For some reason, I thought man was originally made in God's image.

      But what would I know?

      What's your point?
      Also...what's with the hundreds of equal signs?

      However, when speaking to young people today, it may be most effective to sell them on the idea of God first of all.
      He mentions 'Grace' and 'paid for by blood' which is Christian even though he didn't spell it out.

      I am not sure that God created man as imperfect even though Adam and the world fell into sin I don't think God made him that way.

      He wasn't talking about Adam he was addressing the listeners. God made us, designed us, knowing that we aren't perfect... were we (not Adam) born perfect? If so when are we labeled a sinner? That's Islamic belief btw, that we are born perfect until our first sin.

      It was an amusing speech with some content that a Christian can say "amen" to. Why not check to see if he self-identifies as a Christian?
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      He mentions 'Grace' and 'bought by blood'... sounds like Christian belief to me

      Chris Pratt does self identify as a Christian. There is a Christianity Today article about him in which he says he is a Christian, he goes to church, and he believes in God and Jesus etcetera. You can read it if you do a search and click the link
