It isn't unusual for a Catholic grounded in his faith to speak out against abortion, but it is unusual for a Hollywood actor to boldly proclaim the beliefs of his faith and radically reject the hedonistic Hollywood lifestyle. I admire Jim Caviezel for that. And, like Jesus, he sends out a message of forgiveness.
The Christian Post reports:
"Passion of the Christ" actor Jim Caviezel has spoken out against abortion in a recent speech, calling it a "great sin" in America. He also reached out with a message of forgiveness to those who have gone through with the practice.
“Many people are a part of this great sin in this country. These are all God’s children and he brings them home. Now he wants to bring you home. Do you think your friend has more grace than God? Does your friend have more love than the Creator? It can never be. God forgives you and now he needs you to begin, to accept forgiveness.”
I strongly encourage anyone who has had an abortion to seek help through groups like Rachel’s Vineyard and Silent No More. They are safe places for women and men who need help and healing after abortion. Check out resources like Afterabortion.org and take a step towards freedom.
