    Saturday I was in line at the Grocery Store .Tons of people everywhere . While the wife and I were waiting to checkout .In the next line we over heard a young girl I would say in her mid 20's .The girl next to her started talking .She said what you and Bob do last night .She said we went to see the movie "The Passion Of the Christ " .Well the girl said, how did you guys like it ? The girl said all I can say is I am not religious we don't go to church but I couldn't stop crying .And I can't stop thinking about Jesus .I looked at my wife and she smiled at me and both of us wiped tears from our eyes .So we checked out and walked to the car .
    I said be right back ran into the store and went up to the girl and said .Excuse me miss. but I heard what you said in the store about Gibsons movie .All I want to say is .Go to the Christian Book Store in Town and get a Bible and start reading the New Testament and ask Christ to reveal Himself to you and He will . She looked surprised and said she would and thanked me ! My wife said were did you go and I told her and she said I was hoping thats where you went !

    That's wonderful. I hope I respond similarly if the Holy Spirit gives me such an opportunity.

    I myself have been given the opportunity to see the film with a Muslim friend of mine. He's become very interrested in Jesus in the last few months.

    Our daughter in Maine JUST called. A young Catholic woman at her work has some questions she wants to ask ME about the movie. She didn't understand it. She went with her non-Catholic fiance and he sobbed during most of the movie and after they got home. He asked her how oculd she not cry and she told him 'Why? It was just a scary movie.' He told her she has some serious problems and needs to figure it out. She asked my daughter if she could call and talk to me FROM MAINE! Her name is Mary. Pray for the Lord to use me for HIS glory when she calls and for Mary's heart to be prepared.

    And all this time I thought the Lord "could'nt", or "wouldn't" use this movie to win people to him. :rolleyes:

    Praise God He can even use a movie.

    Proverbs 14.25
    A true witness delivereth souls: but a deceitful witness speaketh lies.

    I pray the young lady will follow her promise to prayerfully read the scriptures. I commend the recommendation. There is no discussion of the film, no room for it, the focus was immediately upon the need of the Word of God to be taught through the Holy Spirit. [​IMG]

    Dallas,

    Can you please "lighten up" on you use of scripture a little bit. It is really getting in the way of all of the warm and fuzzy "feelings".

    Could those of you who are so against this film allow us ONE thread where we can share how God is using this film in OUR lives? Just ONE thread, please....

    Can we be completely sure that it is God who is using this movie?


    2 Corinthians 11

    1 I would that you endured me a little in foolishness, but, indeed, endure me.
    2 For I am jealous over you with a jealousy of God. For I have promised you to one Man, to present you a pure virgin to Christ.
    3 But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent deceived Eve in his craftiness, so your thoughts should be corrupted from the purity which is due to Christ.
    4 For if, indeed, the one coming proclaims another Jesus, whom we have not proclaimed, or if you receive another spirit which you have not received, or another gospel which you never accepted, you might well endure these.


    2 Corinthians 11

    12 But what I do, I also will do, that I may cut off the occasion of those desiring an occasion, so that in that which they boast, they be found also as we.
    13 For such ones are false apostles, deceitful workers transforming themselves into apostles of Christ.
    14 And did not Satan marvelously transform himself into an angel of light?


    Jeremiah 17

    9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is incurable; who can know it?


    I will not post on this thread again.

    And if it IS God using this movie and someone gives credit to satan, is that not blasphemy of the Holy Spirit?

    I have asked Webmaster to allow us a place to discuss our chance to witness because of this movie without interference. I'm waiting for his ruling.

    No. I am not Jewish. The christ of this film is not the Lamb of God.

    You are entitled to a place to express your feelings on this movie.

    I will weigh my beliefs against ecumenicalism and where found in disagreement I will shut up. I will not add my hand to the building of this tower of Babel.

    Having said that I will leave off discussing this film on this thread.

    I find it sad and I do use the word sad that numbers are accepted as declaring what truth is.

    I am barring myself from this thread.

    Amen for your witnessing opportunties.

    In the last 3 days the Lord has opened 3 witnessing opportunities when I have expressed why I am NOT going to see the film.

    We have a MIGHTY God!

    There is no thread sacred on the BB. The most innocent topic will pounced.

    I am sorry, Diane. I wish there could be a warm-fuzzy thread, but alas it does not seem to be a reality. [​IMG]

    Do you think we could get a thread where we could critically analyse the movie without being attacked?

    Talk about quenching the spirit, every time something good comes from this movie someone has to knock it. why cant you just accept that just maybe God is using people and this movie to bring people to Himself. Stop trying to think for GOD and start being used for Him.I thing I'll just A-Men that myself. A-Men

    Guys, Webmaster has given me permission and I have started a warm and fuzzy thread about The Passion of the Christ under All Other Discussions and ANY negative remarks will be deleted without notice. Feel free to join in there!

    I am a bit disappointed that a thread has been started where it is possible to express opinions about the other side without a chance of a response. I doubt that we could get an untouchable Passion Critics thread. Maybe so.
