Resurrection Sunday = The Passion Of The Christ.


I just spent the last couple of hours watching a movie with The Diva & The Chef-in-Training. We were going to watch "Ben-Hur" but instead we watched The Passion of the Christ. I bought this movie as soon as it came out but refused to watch it. I saw it in the movie theater and that was quite enough for me.


However at the time of the theatrical release the Diva was too young and I did not let her see it (even though the whole darn church went to see it together!). The movie was rated "R" and very violent & bloody. I have been avoiding and putting it off for a couple of years but since she is 15 now I figured it was time to let her watch it (meaning I had to watch it with her).
Looking at the world today I have no words....
I just wonder...
Anyway,
Ben-Hur is on TV now so I'll watch that while I do my homework.
Happy Resurrection Sunday everyone. Be Blessed!

Remember:

John 3:16 (New International Version) - "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I saw it on theater and I really appr├ęciate the emotions instead of the shocking images.
But it's too much for me too. One time is enough for me!

I'm really happy to be in your world! I'm a new girl in town since 2 months ago and here to perfect my english. So don't be discouraged!!! You can also correct me and it will be a pleasure for me to receive the comments.

I have a blog but it's in french. If you understand a bit, you can read and leave a message in english. I have a lot of friends that make that.

Happy Easter!

Hi there Regina,

The film that truly impacted me in my earlier spiritual journey was "The Last Temptation of Christ". It was protested by Christians when it came out because it presented the scenario of Christ refusing to be the Redeemer.

This was 20 years ago so a film that asked the question "what if Christ had decided NOT to be the Redeemer?" was radical and offensive. It was a PHENOMENAL film.

In the film, Christ was on the cross dying and then he started imagining that perhaps he didn't want to die for the sins of the world and perhaps he wanted to be an ordinary man and not the GOD MAN. The film showed Jesus Christ as an ordinary man who had married Mary Magdalene and He was not the Savior because He had chosen not to die for us and to be a mortal man.

This was a very RADICAL hypothesis twenty years ago.

In the end of the film, though, Jesus is shown on the cross and He chooses to die for us. Powerful.

That film reminds me of the black church song..."He could have come down to save Himself!"

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!
