“Every man dies. Not every man really lives,” he added, echoing the famous quote of Mel Gibson’s William Wallace.
“And in this film, what Paul says at the end is really powerful,” said Jim Caviezel. “To live is Christ. To die is gain. We all die, man. It’s how you live your life, and there are a lot of people out there right now that need our help.”
The faith-based film star is concerned that Christ followers in today’s culture are too worried about death, citing the reaction to Billy Graham’s recent passing as an example:
“As Christians, we have to stop being afraid of that. You know, and I think modern-day Christians really struggle with death… Billy Graham just died, but he had 99 years. And a lot of people cried, but my God, if you don’t believe that man is with Jesus, then what kind of faith do you have?”
