Actor Jim Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in “The Passion of the Christ,” recently called abortion America’s great sin.
“Many people are a part of this great sin in this country,” he said. ”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.”
Caviezel recently spoke to the congregation of The Rock Church in San Diego.

“Some of you have had abortions, some men here and women are adulterers,” he said. “Some have committed murder. Some of you didn’t have the abortion but paid for it, so you have contributed to this. Many people are part of this great sin in this country. Over 50 million in the United States alone, and 45 million die every year in the world. These are all God’s children, and God brings them home.”
Caviezel and his wife, Kerri, have adopted two children from China, both of whom had special needs. Earlier this year, he had a message about God’s mercy and grace, especially for women who have had abortions.
Caviezel isn’t worried about how being outspoken on abortion may affect his career. He told “Catholic Digest” in 2009 that being pro-life is more important to him.

“How are we so arrogant to think the 51.5 million babies who have died in this country… Look, I am for helping women,” he said. “I just don’t see abortion as helping women. And I don’t love my career that much to say, ‘I’m going to remain silent on this.’”
