Hulk Hogan Tells Fans to Turn to Christ: 'He'll Clean You Up'

Wrestling icon Hulk Hogan recently discussed his walk with Jesus Christ after his public announcement he was baptized last December.

During a recent interview on TBN, Hogan encouraged his followers to turn to Christ, saying "Knowing of Jesus and knowing Him are two different things."

"I was always a believer, but I didn't completely surrender," he noted . "I thought I could drive better than He could. I thought I could make the decisions better than He could. And now He takes His hands off the wheel and says, 'Okay. You think you can do it better, go ahead and do it.' So, like I said, I got tired of crashing and burning, and at this point, with a 40-year career behind me, in that whole platform, I understand now that it was just a temporary situation to set me up for this next run."

"And now that that run is over, I'm getting ready to this new run. Now I realize why I'm here and why all that happened,” he added.

Last December, Hogan and his wife, Sky Daily Hogan, were baptized at the Indian Rocks Baptist Church in Florida. Hogan shared a video on Instagram of him and his wife being submerged in a pool of water before coming back up smiling.

"Total surrender and dedication to Jesus is the greatest day of my life," he wrote in the caption.

Hogan previously shared that he rediscovered his faith last April, CBN News reports.

"I accepted Christ as my savior at 14 yrs old and the training, prayers, and vitamins kept me in the game, but now that I am one with God, the main event theme of surrender, service, and love makes me the Real Main Event that can slam any giant of any size through the power of my Lord and Savior and so it is, even now brother, AMEN!" Hogan shared on X.

Hogan also posted Scriptures on social media and wears a T-shirt with John 3:16 on it.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life,” the verse states.

Hogan recently said his life is an example of how God can change one’s life.

"All those things in the past that happened to me – I tell Sky, I'm like the old, scarred-up SEAL that's been in 20 million battles, and I've got scars all over me. And I feel that I'm not a poser because knowing of Jesus and knowing Him are two different things," he explained.

He also encouraged people to turn to Christ regardless of what their life looks like.

"So, at this point, knowing Him and being one with Him, I think all these scars and all these things I've been through – not that I'm leading by example, but I've been made an example of for people that think 'I'm not correct' or 'I don't have my act cleaned up'. Or 'I can't do this'," Hogan said.

"I think all those people that have all the excuses for being in the wrong place at the wrong time or not being good enough. You don't need to be cleaned up. Come to Him. He'll clean you up," he continued.
