Fans of former-Disney star Joshua Bassett are expressing concern for the actor following his recent religious “enlightenment”.

In a Tweet, the actor announced his baptism at Bethel Church – a notoriously anti-gay establishment which also endorses conversion therapy.

In a clip of the ceremony, Bassett claims “no other teacher gave me anywhere near the peace that Jesus Christ did”.

The baptism also follows a series of posts over several months confirming Joshua’s born-again Christian status.

“Something is not right”

The concern follows after Joshua’s previously open criticism of the church. He has also shared his truth about his religious trauma and mental health issues as a result of this.

It is these very conditions, however, that make the young actor vunerable to the cult-like mega churches that prey upon this audience.

In light of the concern, Joshua took to Twitter to also share the following:

“i visited this church and happened to get baptized here- i was unaware of some of their policies and beliefs, and do not endorse all of them.

“my heart is for Christ and Christ alone!”
