Downloading Stations–Passion of the Christ Movie Review

Last evening was one of the best nights I’ve had in a while, in terms of Spiritual enrichment.

First, my youngest son, wife and I, attended Holy Thursday Mass, the one where the Priest gets down on his knees and washes the feet of parish disciples.

For Christians who’ve never experienced this, please consider adding it to your inventory of “must do” Lenten works next year.

The next thing we did was spend $2.99 on Amazon to download the movie The Passion of the Christ, starring Jim Caviezel as Jesus of Nazareth.

He was beyond good.

I remember well how “spun-up mad” the left-wing media became over this movie.

Considering who they bow to, it’s no surprise.

Just like the contorted evil character in the flick who played Satan, the left wanted the world to have nothing to do with a sacrificial lamb whose blood could reconcile the world to God.

That’s a politically incorrect ideology…which means to me, it must be good.

Every accusation possible was thrown at this production, including how anti-Semitic it was, because of producer Mel Gibson, who was rejected by all the major movie companies and forced to produce this independently.

Lucky for him, he made out far better.

Supposedly, Christians who watched this movie would want to go out and injure Jews after they saw it.

So far, it’s been about 8 years since it came out–no injuries yet.

As far as I’m concerned, Mel’s personal mistakes and frailties with regard to his sensitivity to the Jewish community, pale in comparison to President Obama’s deliberate pro-Palestinian policies.

That’s another matter, but just remember, Obama is a former Muslim…the burden of proof is still on him to prove it’s his past, not his present.

This movie is especially good for dads to watch.

For moms, well, it’s not easy to sit through, unless of course you happen to be in the nursing field, where the sight of blood is common.

For kids, I say not younger than 11 or 12.

All the main characters, including Mary the Mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Pontius Pilate and his wife, add significantly to the drama that epitomizes who we are as believers.

For non-believers, please watch this movie, especially if you’re not sure who Jesus really is.

It will clear things up a bit about why we Christians are so proud of what He’s accomplished.

Love can be an act, but courage can flesh-out the fakers.
