Volodymyrdolgoruki,

Yes I read every posting! Then I post! I didn't assume that you hadn't seen the movie! That is for those who haven't! Thank you!

Gramajo320 and Favor Minded

I asked a question you never addressed.

quote:
Here's something to ponder.

If the movie had been more Bible, truth centered;
Less man made centered:

More the True Word of God in it;


(Romans 10:17)
So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).

(Hebrews 4:12) For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.


Could God haved used it even more powerfully?

Would it had made any difference?

Would more people come to faith?

Would more peoples faith grown?

Any comments?

But what do you think?

Volodymyrdolgoruki,

Our Heavenly Father uses people and situations all around this world in order to accomplish what He wants to come to pass. The Holy Spirit leads
in order that our Heavenly Father's plans are accomplished. It is not up to us to question our Heavenly Father when he uses people or situations around the world for He will never let any one be led in the wrong way. All good things work together for the glory of God and that is what is most important. That includes The Passion Of The Christ. Also it is not up to us to judge or to tear down what our Heavenly Father has planned either. His will is what will be done.

You would do well to read Favorminded's and David's postings carefully.


In Christ's love,
Gramajo320

So you won't answer my question then.

Volodymyrdolgoruki,

I suggest again that you read the postings and that includes mine with understanding. Also please refrain from attempting to turn postings into a debate for that has definitely become quite tiresome. You seem to want to do that so much.

In Christ's love,
Gramajo320

Not true

(Mark 13:6) "Many will come in My name, saying, 'I am He!' and will mislead many.

(Matthew 24:5) "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.

Matthew 24:24-25

Volodymyrdolgoruki,

THE HOLY SPIRIT NEVER MISLEADS US! Your apparent continual desire to want only to debate and is very tiresome.

Now I'm telling you au revoir!

You are right, The Holy Spirit NEVER misleads us, but that's not what you said.

You said

I'm not trying to pick on you or upset you.

I FIRMLY believe
2 Timothy 3:16-17
(16) All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness;
(17) so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.


That is one problem I have with the movie, there is very very little scripture in it.

I'm as passionate against the movie as you are for it.


I also firmly believe
(2 Timothy 2:15) Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.

God's Word MUST be accurately quoted and handled.

I don't like see God's Word being misquoted, however innocent or unintetioned it may be.


I will now depart in peace.


May God Bless you all beyond measure with His Wisdom.

May He give you all the Grace and strength to apply His Wisdom.

My He open all your eyes to lies and deceptions, gifting you with His discernment.

Volodymyrdolgoruki,

My eyes are quite wide open as to what are lies and deception and to what is the real truth. The Holy Spirit leads me in many ways and in many areas.

Au Revoir.

In Christ's love,

Talk about an eye-opener, I come back after a day or two and look at this thread... wow! Please don't think me a troublemaker. I believe my original topic was my own grousing over the Academy not even, grudgingly, giving Jim Caviezal a nomination for his portrayal of Jesus in this powerful movie.

I'd also like to add, in the spirit of the conversation that has resulted, that a piece of graffiti on a wall that says, "Got Jesus?" or anything to that effect, is no more biblical than "Passion" can claim to be... yet if one lost soul actually is led to seek the Lord out... pick up a Bible... step into a church... ask a Christian acquaintance about Jesus... all because of that graffiti... then you have seen the Lord at work. Praise Him. He is not limited by the self-created rules of engagement we imagine onto Him. If one soul was saved (whether there is a statistic showing it or not) because of "Passion," praise Him.

Jesus went to the cross to save us from a legalism we could never hope to live up to by our own power. In tearing down "Passion" because it doesn't comply with a legalistic viewpoint of how God OUGHT TO work, is like saying "You're not REALLY saved because you didn't receive Christ in the same church where I did."

If anything, it is foretold that the entire world will have heard of Jesus before He returns... "Passion" at least has served a part of Bible prophecy. I will never attempt to confine God's power down to my own limited vision of how He "should" operate or carry out His plan. If God has used "Passion" as a tool--depsite it ruffling the feathers of a few legalists, which apparently it has--then who can second-guess Him?

At the risk of pouring either water or gasoline on this hot thread... here is a recent interview by Gibson himself, that seems to address the original topic here... I present it to round out all the diverse viewpoints that have been presented in this thread--I hope it helps the exchange.

May God bless the discussion of His word.
