WATCH: Hollywood Star Jim Carrey Delivers Incredible Speech About Forgiveness, Grace And Jesus

A wise man once said, you should always have faith in your abilities and your future.

No matter what situation we find ourselves in, we should never lose the faith in us.

The one and only Jim Carrey looks like he has gotten that lesson.

Ever since he was connected to Homeboy Industries, located in Los Angeles, he has been greatly supported them. As The Blaze reports, starting in June, he has visited them multiple times and successfully affected the participants in the program. Homeboy Industries “provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.”

The program is mostly used by former gang members, over 10.000 of them who look for a change in life. Carrey saw the good souls in these people and decided to be a part of their journey. Here is what he speaks about in the video:

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

He continued talking about the ups and downs of life:

“Ultimately, I believe that suffering leads to salvation. In fact, it’s the only way. We have to somehow accept, not deny, but feel our suffering and feel our losses. And then we make one of two decisions: We either decide to go through the gate of resentment, which leads to vengeance, which leads to self-harm, which leads to harm to others. Or we go through the gate of forgiveness, which leads to grace.”

Watch the video then continue reading:

Carrey added this:

“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—just as Christ did on the cross. He suffered terribly and was broken by it, to the point of doubt and a feeling of absolute abandonment, which all of you have felt. And then there was a decision to be made, and the decision was to look upon the people who were causing that suffering, or the situation that was causing that suffering, with compassion and with forgiveness. And that’s what opens the gates to heaven for all of us.”

    By the Soviets force I had to be an atheist but especially after listening Dr. Carson lecture on evolution vs. creation I was shocked how in hell without learning and understanding from young edges my life record stands behind God wisdom and blessing! So my simple Q to Carry is: What is the prove and not just words… words… words… to my believe that Carry not a people enemy but a real God believer…??? Did he at least apologies for his stupidity in blackmailing and bashing not just my but by the country majority appointed President…? Does he believe he expressed God or Evil…bahaha wish by doing so…? Did Carry was afraid doing it because program participants would cut his balls off…? In case somebody against my opinion I would be delighted to change my stand and even apologize to Carry or even anybody for my stupidity if proven otherwise…bahaha!? Does it fair for Carry doing same in case of otherwise…Bahaha?. BTW, without studding the program is any positive result to any participants so far? Does any record exist on this program? Considering my outstanding record for the past 40 years in U.S. especially as a world renown woodworking craftsman, artisan, designer and engineer, I would hardly believe in any positive reincarnation result till it would be proven that Carry beside ‘comical’ values has any other professional or a human values in helping people in needs and to assure their entry to a cultural society instead of sucking even deeper as it expected from O.J. Simpson…?

    Would be interesting to find if Carry would brave enough or a real man in defending his values and not hiding behind the bushes when confronted by the real man who can proudly stand for ‘Money just a measure the real human value is the treasure’!
