God knows what’s in Mel Gibson’s heart; we don’t. None of us even know him personally, so how much less can we assess the degree of his faith, which is something only God can know? He may be in grave error about certain things, but there have been times in his life when he was sincerely and urgently seeking the Lord. I believe he has been attacked by Satan, particularly since the Passion of the Christ, which was such a stunning work of evangelism for Christians of all types. He needs help, both from a psychiatrist and a priest; let’s all just agree in prayer that he gets such help.
When one gets in the battle, one is attacked by all sorts of Demons which encourage your fleshly desires and sins.
Mel got in the battle long ago and needs prayers for a greater harder fall so he can be done with all the things in his life that allow him to sin out this way.
No excuses for his behavior, nor am I minimizing his part in his downfall. Just saying he’s being pruned an a big, public way.
I feel sorry for the man -- I truly believe that he has inherited the same physiologic/psychological condition his father has. His critics have no interest in that, only what they can gain from using his behaviors to fuel their own prejudices and agitprop.

I believe it as well.
