TARAJI P. HENSON TALKS GOD’S LOVE, AND THE ROLE OF CHRISTIANS IN SOCIETY WHILE PROMOTING HER LATEST FILM THE BEST OF ENEMIES.

Taraji P. Henson, who plays civil rights activist Ann Atwater in the film, told the Christian Post that true followers of Christ are to display unconditional love, even to those who are hateful.

“When we talk about love, we talk about God’s love. It’s unconditional and love is the search for understanding,” Henson said. “So even the person you hate, if you want change you can’t match it with hate or else nothing’s going to change. Someone has to rise above and tap into love. And that’s when she (Atwater) was able to get change.”

When asked about finding resolutions to racial tensions, Henson told the CP that a Christian’s role is to work to defuse the conflict that’s around them. “If you’re a person of Christ, and if you are a Christian, then that’s what you do, that’s what Jesus did. Jesus was nailed to a cross by people who hated Him, resurrected, and still loved those same people. So you have to tap into that if you are truly a Christian,” Henson shared.

The Best of Enemies in theaters 4/5/19.
