In regards to Passion, here's my take (for what its worth) (hey, surgery tomorrow, this helps me forget for a moment) --

I was brought up catholic as well, and so are my 7 kids, and I think that as a catholic we have always been "taught" and made aware of Christ's suffering (in major detail).....I wonder if the people who are other religions don't or didn't get that same information as much as we did...hence, thats why the movie is so upsetting to them? We on the other hand, we not as shocked, maybe???

My thought it that even though I knew what had happened to Jesus and have heard and read the Bible and attend church regulary it made me understand the true sacrifice Jesus made for ME. He loved me enough to go through all of that for ME and for YOU. For US ALL and God stills takes care of us today. Even though we don't deserve His goodness He still gives it.

This movie just put the stories and goodness of Jesus into motion for me. As for me and my family we will never be the same. Ashamed of the word or sharing it and trusting it.

It blew me away.......

Mitzi,

You're right. 12 years of Catholic school and religion classes must have been the reason. Did you see the movie and get the same reaction as I did?

Mitzi,

If your kids are not 17 years old or older, I would suggest that you make sure they have a good stomach and that they are aware of how brutal and graffic this movie is. It is real bad. The whole movie is nothing but Christ's torture with some relieve when he has flash backs.

The Passion Of THe Christ...

Hi all,
I was also brought up catholic, left as a teen and then was saved at age 28 through protestant church. Now member of Assembly of God churches. I have learned in detail the death of Christ including medical and historical. I can say I was not shocked, but moved. Now the first time I read my Bible...I was shocked!! When I was with the catholic church we were not encouraged to read the Bible and since I did leave at an early age I really didnt get a whole lot out of it (my parents were mainly "church goers" so not alot done at home), so when I read the Bible for the first time... whoa!! There is alot of graphic things in there....including Christs death. So I guess the main thing I got out of the movie was just a reaffirmation of just how much God does love us all, and that Jesus wouldnt give up b/c of His love for us. I know the movie was graphic (did not take my younger children to see it) but its the Truth. I think it's a great witnessing tool for those who are "riding the fence" so to speak.

I don't paln on seeing it. I am not much into severely violent movies.
I think if Jesus were to make a movie about Himself, I think it would be about the love and unity of his life- not the violence of his death.
It seems so guilt inducing and I think He probably wouldn't approve of such manipulative measures. He was never a manipulative person.
But then- Jesus didn't make this movie--Hollywood did...therein lies the problem.
Does it show his asscension?? this is what we should concentrate on. The whole miracle was that the crucifixion held no power over Him. That is what He said.
But what he said probably wouldn't make for such a $$ making film.

i agree

I agree with the last sister. I don't plan on seeing it either. I know what he did for me, I don't need Hollywood to tell me and show me their interpretation

Passion

Good Morning,

I agree as well that I will not go see the movie. I turn the channel on tv when they show the promos. Controversary is what makes us all unique and this movie has caused a lot of that. Personally, I just know I would be way to upset to watch the violence and I try to concentrate on the loving side of Christ.

I don't think any of us would say we're "into severely violent movies", I myself hate most of the films released lately because they are violent just for the sake of violence. But this movie was breathtaking to me, because for me, the violence was not the substantial thing I took away from it, although it was a major part of the movie. But, I thought about this a long time, did Mel Gibson really need to show the violence that graphically, and I think he did, because I have been to dozens of Passion plays, and I don't ever remember feeling to the depths of my soul, what Jesus did for me, like I did with this movie. It was so real, not to mention, technically, it is a beautifully made film. JMHO!
