Hollywood actor, Jim Caviezel, who portrayed Jesus in blockbuster "Passion of the Christ", has labeled abortion America's "great sin". However, he also reached out to those who have had abortions, offering them a message of forgiveness.

Caviezel spoke to Rock Church in San Diego recently, where he said: "Many people are a part of this great sin in this country. 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," according to WND.

The actor has spoken out against abortion before, and in May told the Rock Church congregation: "Some of you have had abortions – some men here, and women are adulterers."

At that time, Caviezel was taking part in a Q&A session at the church.

He added, "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."
