It put a lot of things into perspective for me, it made me realize the great love he had for us all. It is not a family fim, but that is why ID is required before you can go in if you are underage. Mel Gibson made it VERY clear this is what it was about, no lies there. It is about the last 12 hours of his life, not on his teachings. That is why it is titled the "Passion of Christ" it was passion, the passion he had for us, and the great love and sacrifice he made. It made me cry, it made me want to hide my eyes, but I could not take my face off the screen. It was real, it was brutal, it should not be underestimated by anyone.
It was in your face hit you right between eyes movie that will do more for the church than anyone has done in a long time. I believe with all my heart this wasn't about how money he could make, but this was a gift from God to Mel Gibson. This movie will bring more people to God and church, more backsliders back to church, and the curious on lookers in to the theaters to see what all the fuss is about, and by the end you will feel emotionally drained. After the movie was over nobody wanted to get up , most people including myself sat their and wept in silence. I needed to tonight badly. Go see the film...
I'm down on my knee's again with my face to the ground, as the tears roll down my cheeks can love, love be found
dealing with the devil time and time again, please God in Heaven forgive for my sins....
