Besides this movie being against the 2nd commandment, (which I am sure someone below has already stated) I see some other difficulties:

1. Embracing what is clearly Catholic Theology---another Gospel. There are sects of the Catholic religion that stress the physical sufferings of Christ. This fact and the fact it is based on The Dolorous Passion (a collection of the meditations of an 18th Century, mystic nun by the name of Anne Catherine Emmerich as she received direct revelation from the Virgin Mary) should cause some serious concerns IMHO. Does this bother anyone? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/rolleyes2.gif" alt="" />

2. The Gospel writers themselves go into VERY little detail of the sufferings of Christ at Calvary. IMHO this is significant! They were eyewitnesses, WHY did they leave out such details that the film embraces--and merely guessed at? IMHO if the Holy Spirit desired to tell us we could have known much more, but apparently His emphasis on the suffering of Christ was elsewhere-- <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/doah.gif" alt="" />

3. It may be surprising for the SBC folks here to know that even though the film was endorsed by the SBC, the individual who heads the Cult Awareness Division of the SBC (sorry I forget his name) was (1) kept from having his letter to the editor against the Passion printed by the SBC top dogs, because they had already endorsed the film!!! (2) is presently looking for a new position. This is indeed sad for the denomination and more so for the Kingdom of God! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/3stooges.gif" alt="" />

4. May God's people stop embracing golden calves!

May God Help Us Discern TRUTH!
