On Fri., Jan. 20, the March For Life took place in Washington, D.C., where thousands of people flocked to the U.S. Capital to defend the rights of unborn children.
Various speakers shared their testimonies on stage in the D.C. National Mall, but there was one particularly moving speech for the audience .
March for Life: The powerful speech of the actor who plays Jesus
“God is real and He is completely in love with you because you are all here today…[fighting] to allow the unborn the right to enter the world and defeat those forces that wish to destroy all evidence of them!” Roumie says.
“You have chosen to journey to our nation’s capital today not only to mourn the 64 million children lost through abortion in the last 50 years, but also to stand up for those yet to be born,” he adds.
The Jesus actor stressed that the devil “wants us to believe that abortion does not harm us individually or as a society.”
He then referred to the entertainment industry, noting that in recent years “there has been a sharp and disturbing increase in the darkness of the imagery being used in film, television and music.”
“The landscape has become increasingly sinister and, in some cases, even demonic in tone, more than in previous years; sometimes subliminal, oftentimes overt,” he explains.
“I’m referring to the media, which is even more ominous, and I don’t need to name names,” he says.
“The media have become a portal to behavior and attitudes that children want to emulate that reject God, reject the light, reject, ultimately, all those aspects of community, which give life. ”
Then, as thousands of people listened to his speech, Jonathan Roumie said: “For the majority of believers, God is love, and true love gives way to life, not death.”
“Embrace that which is bigger than you–He who gave you abundant life and he who has called you by name.
“Do not be afraid, mute the noise of the popular and embrace the counterculture of Christ’s love and the message He offers you. The road is wide, which leads to destruction (and many will enter it).
“So enter through the narrow gate, my dear friends. For therein lies the Kingdom of Heaven.”
