Homeboy Industries is a Los Angeles-based organization that provides help to formerly incarcerated people and those who’ve been involved in gangs.
Jim Carrey recently gave a talk to the community and powerfully spoke about Christ. “This room is filled with God.
“We have to feel our suffering and feel our losses.”
“I believe that suffering leads to salvation.”
This is what he said on Christ:
“Your being here is an indication that you’ve made that decision already. You’ve made the decision to walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace. Your being here is an indication that you’ve made that decision already. 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 absolute 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.”
