Prominent Christian actor and former child star Kirk Cameron has warned America that it is nearing "the point of no return" as the country continues to reject God's laws, and called for revival before it's too late.

"People think we are in the last days of America," Cameron said during a recent interview with the Topeka Capital-Journal. "Is it too late? No, it's not too late. It's not impossible to turn it around, but there's no time to wait any longer. We are nearing the point of no return, but we're not there yet. But we must lean in, double down and engage ASAP because we've been coasting for too long."

The 45-year-old "Fireproof" actor is currently touring the country for his marriage conference, "Love Worth Fighting For," in which he shares biblical truths about marriage in amid the world's changing values.

Cameron, who has six children with Chelsea Noble, his wife of 25 years, told the outlet that while the country is divided on a number of issues, people across all religions and ethnic groups understand the importance of a strong family unit.

"Nobody wants to fail at family," he said. "It doesn't matter whether you're a Christian, a Jew, a Muslim, a Hindu, an atheist or if you're black or white. Nobody wants to fail at family."

In 2014, Cameron's sister, Christian actress Candace Cameron Bure, shared her Bible-centered thoughts on marriage in her book Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose. At the time, she came under fire after revealing that she prefers to take a more submissive role in her marriage to former National Hockey League player Valeri Bure.

"The definition I'm using with the word 'submissive' is the biblical definition of that," Bure, who is known for her role in the sitcom "Full House," wrote. "So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength. And that's what I choose to have in my marriage."

Last year, Bure clarified the role she assumes in marriage during an interview with Yahoo Parenting.

"I used the word 'submissive' [to describe my role in the marriage] because it's from the Bible but people who don't understand that see that as offensive," she said. "My husband is not a dictator. We work together but I don't want to dig my heels in and I have no aspirations to be the ruler of my family. We are two equal people but I love my husband and I want him to lead."

"With big picture issues such as where we live or what schools the kids attend, if he feels strongly about something and I think our family would benefit from it, I am going to share my thoughts," she continued. "But ultimately, I trust that my husband has our family's best interests at heart, so I wouldn't fight him on that. And when I feel strongly about something, he agrees with me. It goes both ways."

Kirk Cameron's latest film project is "Revive Us," a one-night event that will be shown live in 1,000 movie theaters across the nation on the night before the final presidential debate. The film will feature cameos by former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, among other well-known Americans.
