Christian Actor Paul Walker Killed in Car Accident During Charity Event - Reach Out Worldwide

Introduction on Paul Walker's faith:
Paul Walker was born in Glendale, California and grew up in San Fernando Valley.
Walker was brought up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or Mormons, in a large family of five children. Some of the more visible aspects of that faith include abstaining from sex before marriage and abstaining from drugs and alcohol. Apparently, Walker no longer follows these guidelines, however, as he says:
"I still hold myself accountable. I’m not the kind of guy who’s taking advantage of my position. I could be sleeping with a different 18-year-old girl every day if I wanted to. But that’s not my speed."
In fact, Walker doesn’t consider himself a Mormon anymore2 but he’s still quite religious–in a non-denominational, Christian sort of way. And he simply doesn’t get atheism:
"I’m a Christian now. The things that drove me crazy growing up was how everyone works at fault-finding with different religions. The people I don’t understand are atheists. I go surfing and snow boarding and I’m always around nature. I look at everything and think, ‘Who couldn’t believe there’s a God? Is all this a mistake?’ It just blows me away."
