Actor Jim Caviezel denounces ongoing Christian persecution worldwide
Actor Jim Caviezel, who came onto the Hollywood scene in 2004 with his iconic role as Jesus in "The Passion of the Christ," is an outspoken Catholic who openly discusses his faith and devotion to God. "The way God sees us is who we really are," Caviezel recently declared, in the context of the release of the new movie "Infidel" in which he plays the leading role
The feature film, which will be released in theatres on the 18th of September, is described as a “contemporary Middle East thriller” surrounding an “American kidnapped while attending a conference in Cairo, who ends up in prison in Iran on spying charges.”
Caviezel said the plotline of “Infidel” explores the persecution of Christians in the Middle East— an issue that is tragically still raging in various countries across the globe.
“Barbaric Christian persecution is something that still goes on today,” the actor said, proceeding to reveal the movie’s purpose. “The goal would be to create a sense of urgency and relevance to Christians and non-Christians who should be engaged in this issue.”
