Many Christians more afraid of devil than God, Jim Caviezel says

Jim Caviezel, who stars in the new hit film “Sound of Freedom” about human trafficking, said it’s time for Christians to stand and be counted.

“The problem is that modern-day Christianity has become so weak and useless,” he told Fox News.. “I mean, modern-day Christians are more afraid of the devil than they are of God. God could destroy the devil without a glance, but he looks to us to make a decision.”

Caviezel said Americans don’t want God in their religion and universities, which has led to moral decay in society. “So you have moral depravity,” he said. “Laws don’t mean anything anymore. We don’t have the First Amendment. There’s no such thing as free speech anymore. You’re absolutely destroyed everywhere, and the media throws out that everybody’s a racist.”

Many actors passed on the lead role, but Caviezel was “amazing,” co-star and producer Eduardo Verastegui said. “They passed,” he said. “And I believe things happen for a reason. Thank God that they passed, because Jim Caviezel is amazing. This guy is not only an amazing actor, but he’s passionate about this.”

For Caviezel, the movies he chooses to do must have a “moral redemption.”

“The purpose God gave me in this business, I wanted to bring his light,” he said. “And it doesn’t mean I’m always his light into an industry. And I wanted to do that, but it doesn’t mean that I’m not going to play the devil in movies. Just there’s got to be some sort of moral redemption.

“I may not have any friends around me when this is over, but I’ll have God. He won’t leave me. I’ll be looking at him at that point. When I do leave this earth, at least I gave the best I could from God, you know, and my father in heaven. And I want the world to know I love him. And maybe that’s evil to them. Not to me, but to them.”
