I received this email from a friend this morning that saw the film last night. Just thought I'd share;
Subject: The Passion Of Christ
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we
were still sinners, Christ died for us” Oh how I love Jesus and praise Him
I thought I knew how much the Father loved me and after seeing the movie I
couldn’t even really imagine His love towards me. I have read the
scriptures and heard the word being preached concerning the death of our
Lord, but to have seen it was more than what I have been taught.
To be honest with you I can’t even explain this to you, because even now my eyes are becoming cloudy with tears. The songs says “I don’t know why Jesus loves me, I don’t know why Jesus cares, I don’t know why He sacrificed His life for me, oh but I’m glad so glad He did”
The movie did much for me and has given me a deeper outlook on much. I
told you before I thought I knew how much the Father loved me and even how much I love Him, I know He endured for me even to the cross but He done so much more just for me. This is truly a personal movie and I recommend you see it ASAP. Yes it is rated “R” there were even parts I couldn’t bear to see but even in that it was certainly “REAL”
What better time for this movie to come out leading up to the Crucifixion
of our Lord. Can you really imagine having to be the one to crucify Him?
When there was no “Fault” in Him, yet we didn’t nail Him to the cross but
we have in one time or another crucified Him and denied as Peter, but even
in that Christ still died.
You must see this. The only thing I wish could have happened
that this movie was in someone’s church where those that wanted to give
their lives to the Lord could have had the chance, but I’m sure that in
someone’s heart they did just that. This is an “eye” opener even for the
