Dog the Bounty Hunter opens up about how faith in God helped him through ‘some terrible stuff’

It’s not uncommon for individuals going through difficult times to seek guidance from a higher power.

Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, has said that his religion has helped him overcome life’s most difficult challenges, and that same faith is how he is able to inspire others that they, too, can overcome even their darkest days.

While Chapman, 69, has had his share of wins, he has also had his share of heartbreak.

He was convicted of first-degree murder in 1976, when a buddy shot and killed a guy. Chapman was in the getaway vehicle. He was sentenced to five years in a Texas jail but served just 18 months.

Decades later, when it came to the success of his television shows, he would have many victories. Dog the Bounty Hunter, an A&E series that chronicled Chapman’s life as a bounty hunter, premiered in 2004.

Following the cancellation of the series, he and his late wife Beth Chapman appeared in another similar show.

Sadly, Beth was diagnosed with throat cancer soon after the duo’s program was canceled. She passed away on June 26, 2019.

Chapman said that he grew despondent when his late wife died.

He started to pray when Beth died. And he prayed for one thing in particular.

“He began praying for a wife,” he explained. He ask God, to send him a Christian; he want a female who knows the Holy Spirit and can talk in tongues, he prayed. And God led her right to him

Chapman married Francie a little more than a year after Beth died.

“It was God-ordained.”

Despite the fact that 47 percent of U.S. citizens belong to a church, synagogue, or mosque, Chapman believes in leveraging his celebrity to express his religion wherever possible.

Not only did A&E allow him to utter “In Jesus’ name, amen” at the conclusion of a prayer, but he also sang his own version of “Amazing Grace” on this season of The Masked Singer.

Chapman also stated that his beliefs are accepted not only by the general public but also by Hollywood.

While he thinks the end times have begun, Chapman feels there is something good amid all the evil.

When sin begins to abound, and they’ve never seen sin abound like this before, he explained. On the other hand, a large number of individuals are coming to God right now.

Danica McKellar, a former Hallmark star, is only one example.

“He wishes everyone to know that I am for God,” he said. And he thinks God is pouring forth His Spirit like never before on all flesh, and he is eager to be a part of it.

What a strong statement from Dog. I’m delighted to hear he’s using his religion to encourage others that they, too, can overcome adversity.
