    I have a better idea. Let us Hang Mel Gibson for bucking the Hollywood crowd and making a movie about Christ that was politically incorrect.

    He is guilty of using the faith he grew up in. He is guilty for using the principles of the priest who took care of him as a child, etc. etc.

    If he can't stick to making movies about gangsters killing each other and monsters from outer space --- How dare him try to make a movie about his Christ?

    After all, he is the anti-christ, isn't he? That's what I hear, or at least the movie is the pre-cursor.

    I think maybe we ought to beat him like he showed Christ in his movie---before we hang him like Judas and we should also film it and put it on the movies FOR FREE!!!!!!

    Now, there is justice. :D

    There is no sliding scale of righteousness in the Kingdom of God. Emotional pleas will not change that. The movie is not acccurate scripturally or historically for that matter. He has cashed in on the obvious lack of Biblical knowledge and discernment of the evangelicals and even Baptists, so he will surely make a sequel. The idea of "If it is better than terminator, and it preaches a "kind" of Jesus, then it is ok" concept is not really accceptable. At least not to me........

    Like I said: "LET's HANG HIM!"

    What are you going to say when you are at work (assuming you are not a pastor, I dunno what you do.) and your athiest friend said: I saw that Mel Gibson movie last week and "boy did they beat on that Jesus". What do you think about that?

    Are you going to jump on the "opportunity" or spend your time tongue-wagging about that anti-biblical film--after which your co-worker will not discuss religion with you any more because he knows if he does YOU WILL STRAIGHTEN HIM OUT." YEAH, THAT'S THE WAY TO HANDLE THAT. :rolleyes:

    While we're at it, I think we oughtta use the ole electric chair on those two boys that cashed in on the "left behind" series.

    You know, those two boys that were only going to write three books until the money started flowing?

    Now, there are a couple of dudes that really cashed in and I bet you'll find a few places where they didn't exactly follow the Bible either. They're human, I bet their books aren't perfect like the Bible either. Let's get 'em. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Let's get them too, while we're at it. YEAH! I'm on a roll now!

    You go Philip.... whooooo

    [Sarcasm] Let those heathens that saw Mel's cinematic charade know that they are eternally damned because they saw that awful movie. Call them names and belittle them in their efforts to learn more about what they witnessed in the movie. [/sarcasm]

    I got any idea, let's let God deal with Mel Gibson's heretical, gratuitously violent distortion of the plan of salavation.

    Let's not hang anyone. Rather, hang our heads low and weep over the lack of discernment the evangelical world, which should know better, is displaying by endorsing a garbled, Hellywood film.

    Hang onto biblical accuracy. Hang out with genuine Christians who know scriptural truth from bogus masochistic mystical delusions and psychotic visions disgracing the true Christ of the Gospels.

    Poor Mel. What a confused, angry, anti-Semitic, and cultish man. A man who loves to pile on abuse against our dear Lord and Savior.

    Pray for him and those who praise him for his violence-lovers film...that rejects Christ's Resurrection and glorious Ascension as not being gory and brutal enough to warrant cinematic treatment.

    :(

    Mel's Christ was not sufficient to accomplish salvation.

    As I have said over and over again, catholics have a different Christ.

    Amen, Daniel David.

    I don't know if all Catholics have a different Christ, I do like the way the Catholics like Teresa of Avila, Fulton Sheen, Augustine, Thomas a Kempis, Brother Lawrence, and John Michael Talbot display and discuss the Biblical Jesus Christ in writing or music...

    ...but Mel's Christ is not the Gospel Christ at all. Not at all. It is masochistic pain-freak Emmmerich's vision of Christianity and Mariolatry. Warped and Hellywoodishly violent.

    :(

    I wouldn't go so far as to "Hang" Mel as I would educate him---I mean, what good will it do to hang the fella?? Somebody will just take up where he left off and botch things up theologically even worse than things are now!!

    Maybe one day Mel will "wake up" and will be like those men in the movie, "Bridge over River Kwai"---they build that bridge for the Japs----they were so proud of that thing---then it suddenly "dawns" upon them---"What have we done??"---maybe one day Mel will try to plant some dynamite under that film and go back to the drawing board.

    I just wonder how good we are at defending the real Jesus as we are in what we see in this film?? Oh, we say things like, "Me? Yes sir! I'll stand up for Jesus!" but when it comes time to stand up---too many times than none---there's a rooster in the background singing at the top of his lungs, "Cock-a-doodle doo! Cock-a-doodle doo!"

    How about we start holding Baptist leaders and other Christian TV Celebrities responsible for their lies and their deceptive descriptions of THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.

    They tout it as "true to the scriptures" and

    "Biblically correct"

    when anyone with spiritual discernment and a basic knowledge of the scriptures and Roman Catholicism knows that is, at best, misinformation.

    The problem isn't Mel Gibson and Hollywood and the problem isn't even Roman Catholicism.

    The problem is the spiritually deceived Baptist and Christian celebrities who promote error as truth.

    rbrent--I'm jealous now.

    You are out-vaspering the Vaspers guy. I'm worried that you may be outdoing me in zeal. This must not be. Ha! Good for you. I was getting tired of defending critical thinking skills and Biblical fidelity and accuracy.

    Now I can relax a bit whilst you and donnA and blackbird man the helms or whatever sailors do.

    You are so correct. But when the Anti-Christ, and his preluders, arrive, if we are still here to see it, imagine the shock and dismay to see everybody line up to praise this idiot ideologue.

    Hang on my friend. Churchianity has been polluted since AD 36 or so.

    My wife keeps telling me, (this is the gist of it): "Chill out. The letters to the churches in the book of Revelation tell the whole story of what's happening now in the churches. It's been foretold. Calm down. Have some green tea with honey and listen to your beloved Catholic singer John Michael Talbot or read some more Charles Finney, R. A. Torrey, Erwin Lutzer, Augustine, or Puritan Richard Baxter's THE REFORMED PASTOR."

    Yes ma'am, I say and settle down for a second or 2.

    So vaspers ,now its to the point that if you approve of this movie your an example of the faults that plagued the churches of revelation, a new ager ,a heresy lover and a person waiting to ignorantly line up to praise the antichrist? You my friend are obsessed with slamming this movie. Get over it.

    And some are obsessed with defending a heretical, violence-lovers, mystical nonsense movie.

    If the shoe fits wear it, including me.

    Dear Christian friend Elijah, look at what yer online namesake did. He was a controversial guy. He shook up the traditional religious pew potatoes.

    I will not "get over it." Expressing my honest opinions, in as gentle a manner as I can, whilst remaining firm and provocative, is FUN.

    One must be unique and provocative online, or one will disappear. Web blogs are not for the timid or those who crave to "fit in" with the mainstream. Online communities have always been the home of provocative eccentric mavericks.
    Like the Bible Elijah and Elisha and Jeremiah.

    All I'm saying is if you evaluate The Passion by strict Biblical standards, and still rave about it, more power to you.

    But if you simply say, "It made me weep into my popcorn. It was stunning. Now I finally appreciate what Christ suffered for me (God's Word alone wasn't enuff). What an exciting film. Great music. Great cinematic photography. Great acting. Great sub-titles. Great surrealistic special effects." ......

    ....then you may be in danger of using the wrong standard to judge spiritual things.

    That's all I meant.

    Peace, Joy, and Love in Christ!

    Anti-Passionism --

    The new fundamental of NeoIFB's

    Just keep separating and separating until all that is left is you.

    While we're in Revelation, let's be numbered with the number no man can number. Instead of a legalistic, separtistic, self-righteous, bunch they like to call "remnant"

    Just throw out John 17, where Christ prayed for our unity. I guess with the Anti-passionists that prayer will never come true.

    A lost world going to Hell, and all you can do is complain about a movie that is gettting the Lost to ask questions.

    If I was part of this type of Baptist, I'd be so ashamed to be counted with some on this board.

    So much Hate!!! Yeah, I'm sure a lot of NeoIFBers will hang me for this next statement, but here goes.

    Love is what it's all about.

    And dear friend, you are so loving in your post.

    Throwing around denominational tags, when everybody knows that denominational divisions are ridiculous and unbiblical.

    If you want to use The Passion to reach lost souls, go right ahead. Paul said no other foundation can be laid but Jesus Christ, but be careful how you build upon it.

    I will not use The Passion for anything. But do what seems best to you.

    Good post my brother. I think I would have responded more emotionally and less reasonably to the OP than you did. Thanks!

    "Hang out with genuine Christians who know scriptural truth from bogus masochistic mystical delusions and psychotic visions disgracing the true Christ of the Gospels."

    Let's hang a sign on the church door that says, if you ain't got it right, don't come in.

    Let's be like the real Jesus and hang around lost people in order to tell them the truth about JESUS!

    Let's hang earmuffs on our heads to drown out the voice of the culture as they ask questions about our Lord and Savior.

    Let's hang up.
