Comedian Jim Carrey Delivers Message of Christ's Salvation to Prisoners and Gang Members

Veronica Neffinger : Jul 21, 2017  Christian Headlines

"You've made the decision to walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace, just as Christ did on the cross ... that's what opens the gates of Heaven for all of us. I wish that for all of you. I wish that for myself." – Jim Carrey

Homeboy Industries is a rehabilitation center led by Jesuit Rev. Gregory J. Boyle, according to Christian Today. Carrey was invited to speak to a group at the center and he gave a clear Christian message.

"You are heroes to me, and I admire you," Carrey began. "'When you stepped through these doors, you decided to be a part of this family. You've made a decision to transcend and to leave darkness behind, and it takes a champion to make that decision."

"And ultimately, I believe that suffering leads to salvation ... You've made the decision to walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace, just as Christ did on the cross. He suffered terribly and He was broken by it, to the point of doubt and a feeling of absolutely abandonment, which all of you have felt. Then there was a decision to be made. And the decision was to look upon the people who were causing that suffering with compassion and with forgiveness, and that's what opens the gates of Heaven for all of us. I wish that for all of you. I wish that for myself.'"
