Cory Monteith Revealed What He Thought God Would Say To Him If He Died – Just Last Year

Bravo are going to be re-broadcasting the late Cory Monteith's appearance on Inside The Actor's Studio that first aired last year on Thursday July 18th at 6pm - reports The Hollywood Reporter.
"James Lipton asked Monteith a now poignant question: "If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?’" "Cory’s God said, ‘Uh, sorry I haven't been around. There’s a good explanation.’ I certainly hope there is. We needed Cory’s gifts,” Lipton said during the episode."
That one sentence about Cory's God speaks volumes. I still don't feel as if I can do this subject justice yet- but most of us know addicts who have either already been killed by their addictions or continue to suffer and Cory had battled long and hard. Cory admitted in the past that he started drinking and doing drugs at the age of 12 and when pressed on whether he could avoid the temptations of Hollywood in 2011, Monteith said, "I can’t completely rule out any of that happening." "But," he added, "I can't un-live the life I've lived." Poor kid. My own suspicion is that getting into the mindset to play an addict-hustler in the upcoming film McCanick - which was shot last September - re-awakened the demons that eventually took Cory's life despite a rehab stint in April. The most eloquent essay on addiction that I've ever read is Russell Brand's which is both poignant and touching without being sugar-coated and explains what Cory was up against so much better than I ever could. He says of his support groups:
Without these fellowships I would take drugs. Because even now the condition persists. Drugs and alcohol are not my problem — reality is my problem. Drugs and alcohol are my solution. If this seems odd to you, it is because you are not an alcoholic or a drug addict.
Tragically nothing can help Cory now and whatever the cause of his death (and we will hear the official verdict shortly), one tiny shard of hope is that Monteith wasn't some scuzzy Pete Doherty type people don't really identify with - he was a (albeit seemingly) shining, happy Glee kid. -So if his death scares troubled runaway teens away from trying drugs in the first place (and recovering addicts to succumb to that 'just one hit' that might kill them) then some small piece of good can come out of the darkness that surrounds Cory's death - so very much before his time. Here's a clip of Cory on the Inside The Actor's Studio that's re-airing in the US on Thursday.

    Wow!

  2. Siska says:

    Good article ! I also wish his tragic dead will be a wake up call to others.
    Such a tragedy.

  3. vee115 says:

    seems it’s always the relapse that kills.

  4. Monaco Lewinsky says:

    People take drugs because they make you feel good. That’s it. They do.

    However, if for whatever reason you want to be a long-term drugbucket and survive, you have to be either a) lucky or b) careful. Sadly this guy was neither it seems.

    • Jen Paul says:

      Yeah look at Keef Richards. People say you don’t see old junkies, but he is one and he still drinks and smokes. I guess it is all luck and other factors like how strong your body/ tolerance is etc. Then def being careful. The amount of kids (farking hell i act like I’m 70 I mean “people”) that buy and snort or eat stuff from strangers at parties without knowing what it is makes me shudder.

  5. Brina says:

    It pains be because it seems like he truly was a good person and he wanted to get better.

  6. jody says:

    Olympus is closed for the duration

  7. Truth says:

    The “god” of Cory’s vain imagination is not God Almighty, so he can attempt to mock God all that he wants but God Himself Said this In His Word:

    Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. (Galatians 6:7-8)

    If anyone dies without having accepted God’s Provision Of Forgiveness for our sins through Jesus Christ The Son Of God, By His Death, Burial, and Resurrection, then their eternal destination is not the “Pearly Gates”, but the Lake Of Fire..

    He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (John 3:36)

    And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:11-15)

    People can believe whatever they want to believe, but just because people think that 1+1=3, doesn’t make it true. Truth Is Absolute, and no one will be able to withstand God’s Judgment and Wrath if they choose to reject His Forgiveness.

    • Jen Paul says:

      How about you take your unwanted bible interpretations (a book which, by the way was made up by an over-imaginative human to keep unhinged spanners like you in check) and fuck right off you mentalist arsewipe.

      • Truth says:

        You may not want it Jen, and that’s ok because it’s your choice to reject God and to die in your sins, but there will be people who want to hear it and will humbly accept the fact that they are a sinner and will ask God for Forgiveness. Whether you like to believe it or not (and it doesn’t change a thing even if you want to choose to deceive yourself), YOU ARE GOING TO STAND BEFORE GOD ONE DAY AND ANSWER TO HIM.

        for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)
        For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

        If you reject the free gift of Salvation From God, do you honestly think you’ll have any excuse on Judgment Day? Your arrogance and rebellion against God will testify against yourself.

        The following TRUTH Of God Perfectly Describes unrepentant sinners such as yourself:

        For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
        For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: and likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 1:18-32)

        Oh by the way, if you’re still here, the inerrancy of The Bible has been proven by every historical event and scientific discovery. God Prophesied that Israel would become a sovereign nation and state again, almost 2,000 years after the Jews have been desecrated and scattered among the nations, and guess what, they declared independence in 1948! If you haven’t read The Bible or know anything about it, don’t go about discrediting it while pretending to know something. God Is The Author Of The Bible, NOT MAN. Again, you will have NO EXCUSE before God if you choose to reject Him in rebellion. I seriously don’t want to see God’s Wrath on you, so repent Jen, repent and believe in The Salvation Of Jesus Christ, Son Of God!

        • Jen Paul says:

          So a magic and very powerful man who lives in the clouds flew down to earth hundreds of years ago and wrote a book that you now live by? And from said clouds he now keeps track of every human on earth- including the ones that rape children and women and murder innocent people? But rather than DO anything (despite having the power to as he made all these people) he sits there surrounded by harp-playing angels keeping tabs so he can tell them “no” when they finally die and knock on the door to come into his paradise before sending them off to some firey pit downstairs? You do know how mentally unhinged that makes you sound? Do you also believe in Santa Claus? Because there’s never any point in arguing with the unstable of mind I won’t bother but thanks for giving me a good laugh you loony.

          • Truth says:

            God Is Eternal, which means He Is The Beginning AND The End, there is nothing before Him and nothing after Him. His Word (The Bible Is the written Revelation Of His Word) Has Existed before anything was Created. God Is also Spirit, which means that we can’t perceive Him with our physical eyes. But In His Love, He Revealed Himself to us, His Creation, By Manifesting Himself In fleshly, bodily human form In The Person Of Jesus Christ, and In His Love and Grace He Died Unjustly On The Cross about 2,000 years ago to pay for our sins, which separates us from God; but He didn’t just Die, He Resurrected Himself By The Holy Spirit Of God on the third day. We no longer need to be separated from God, because The Blood Of Jesus Christ Washes away our sins, for those who humbly accept His Free Gift Of Salvation , and we can approach God as we are, because we are Clothed In The Righteousness and Holiness Of God BY FAITH. That means that whosoever believes in this Good News will never be separated from God, and won’t have to die the second death. The first death is physical death, which we are all subject to, where our bodies return to the dust of the earth. The second death is spiritual death, and whether you experience that depends on whether you accept or reject God’s Gift Of Salvation through The Blood Of His Son Jesus Christ. No one has to die this second death, but they choose to because of their sinful rebellion against their Creator. I didn’t say this Jen, God Declared This Truth In His Written Word (The Bible). Humans can lie, but God Cannot Lie, because that’s just Who He Is, His Character.

            It’s ok Jen, it also said in the Bible that MOST people will reject and mock their Creator, living life by their own twisted moral standards and self-righteousness. Have you ever lied in your life (including those so-called white lies)? Well that makes you a liar (a sinner). Have you ever taken advantage of anyone or any institution (filing taxes, crossing the border and declaring dutiable value of goods, etc.) in your life, whether it’s a small matter or big? That makes you a thief (a sinner). Have you ever shouted at your parents or brought their failures/shortcomings to light in front of anybody else? That makes you a parent-dishonouring rebel (a sinner). Have you ever looked at ANYONE in your life other than your spouse (if you’re married) with lust or with any sort of fantasy of the sexual kind? Then that makes you a fornicator/adulterer (sinner). I could go on, but the point is that you have sinned more than you ever know (and even though you don’t “get caught” by people, God Knows every evil thought or deed that has ever and will ever come out of you), and sin cannot co-exist with a Perfect, Sinless, and Holy God. To think that you don’t need forgiveness for your sins, or to think that you can do “good works” to compensate for those sins is the pinnacle of arrogance and pride.

            About the rapists and murderers, those were the choices that those people made out of their own free will. Sin is vile and hurts others, and we live in a world of sin. Who are we to blame God for OUR choices and OUR mistakes? Children who have no capacity to exercise their free will to accept or reject God will go to Heaven to be with Him after they die, so maybe you can take comfort in that the next time you see any news of children being murdered. Make no mistake, however, those rapists and murderers will be Judged By God one way or another. Everyone is responsible for the sins that they commit, whether it be against others or against God. The questions is, do you want God To Pay for your sins, or do you want to pay for your own sins?

            For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 6:23)

            If you choose to do it your way and pay for your own sins against God and against others, you will die the second death, which is the spiritual death, and God In His Perfect Justice Will Cast you into the Lake Of Fire For Eternity.

            Let me ask you, when we see stories of judges acquitting murderers or rapists from their criminal charges because apparently there wasn’t “enough evidence to prove beyond reasonable doubt” that they’re guilty, doesn’t that make your blood boil? Don’t you cry out for justice? Wouldn’t you say that the judge was a bad judge, that he/she had no discernment, that justice was perverted because of the verdict? Well, God Is A Perfect Judge, and everyone will get what they deserve, and there will be no “unjust verdicts” with God. Without God’s Forgiveness, we will get what we all deserve, The Lake Of Fire For Eternity, everyone last one of us.

            For your information, no I don’t believe in Santa Claus, because Christmas isn’t about Santa Claus, but it’s all about celebrating The Birth Of Our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ. Don’t you see the word “Christ” in Christmas? Why do you think that’s there? I also don’t believe in the easter bunny, because Easter isn’t about bunnies and eggs (that’s paganism), but all about commemorating and celebration The Death, Burial, and Resurrection Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, In Whom we all now have Forgiveness of sins.

            I never had any intention of arguing with you, because I don’t believe in arguing. I only wanted to tell you the Truth because God’s Truth Will Give you Life Everlasting, but lies and deceit will lead you down the path of destruction, and ultimately into The Lake Of Fire. Even though you mock me and call me names, I still care enough about you to TELL YOU THE TRUTH, even if it sounds uncomfortable (and it should, because everyone will be convicted of their sins by The Word Of God). Rather, I would say it’s not me that cares about you, but God that Cares about you, because He’s Reaching His Hand out to you, and Offering you His FREE GIFT Of Salvation and Eternal Life through His Son Jesus Christ.

            I don’t know where you come from Jen, I don’t know your past, your experiences, your dreams, nor your struggles in life. What I DO know, is that you need to Be Forgiven By God for all the sins you’ve ever committed in your life, and for all the sins that you will commit in the future, and Be Reconciled To God (everyone needs this). Despite all your antagonism and hostility, I would never want you to experience Eternal Separation From God In The Lake Of Fire, and I pray that you will be humble enough to acknowledge your guilt of sin and to ask God For Forgiveness.

            If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer you, or if you just want to “argue”, I’m up for that too. Send me an E-Mail at [email protected]. By the way, my name is Dickens, and I pray for blessings upon you and your loved ones. God Bless you.
