Chris Pratt told an audience of screaming fans over the weekend that it was important for him to deliver a simple message while in the limelight: Love God.

Marvel’s “Star-Lord” used his Teen Choice Awards acceptance speech on Sunday to unabashedly share his Christian faith while asking fans to examine it for themselves.

“Wow, what a great crowd,” he said over the weekend while accepting Fox’s “Choice Summer Movie Actor” award for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” “I’m so thrilled to be here. …  I want to thank God. I always do that when I’m up on a big platform in front of a bunch of young faces. I say, ‘I love God!’ That’s my thing, I love him — and you should, too!”

Mr. Pratt made a similar headline-grabbing speech while accepting the “2018 Generation Award” at the MTV Awards in June.

The Hollywood celebrity gave “Nine Rules for Life” during MTV’s event, which included No. 6: “God is real. God loves. you. God wants the best for you. Believe that. I do.”

“People are going to tell you you’re perfect just the way you are,” he said June 18. “You’re not. You are imperfect. You always will be. But there is a powerful force that designed you that way, and if you’re willing to accept that, you will have grace, and grace is a gift. And like the freedom we enjoy in this country, that grace was paid for with somebody else’s blood. Do not forget it. Do not take it for granted.”
