“God is real,” Roumie, who stars as Jesus in the highly successful multi-season series ‘The Chosen,’ said from the stage. “God is real because He is completely in love with you because you are all here today.”
He also read from the Bible. [WATCH VIDEO BELOW]
For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them. (Psalm 139:13-16)
The 50th Annual March for Life took place in a post-Roe world.
“History has been made. Life has triumphed in an extraordinary way,” he said. “And the light of the world, who is Jesus Christ, the author of life, His light has burned so very brightly within each and every one of you, irrespective of your specific beliefs, compelling you forward for one reason or another to stand together today and fight the noblest and worthiest cause possible, which is to allow the unborn the right to enter into the world, and defeat those earthly forces which wish to destroy the very evidence of them.”
Roumie warned that the fight for life was not over. Abortion remains legal in many states across the US.
“[Satan] is not about to give up this fight, either. In fact, he is doubling down, because guess what? His time is limited. So he’s throwing everything he has at the world and all of us in it… he wants us to believe that abortion does not harm us, individually and as a society, so please, I beg of you: pray for those who do not have the faith, the strength, the clarity of purpose, that you here do.”
