       Thank God for Mel Brooks who has the courage to stand up to Hollywood and others who don't want anything to do with God.  I think he will have a special place in heaven.

I saw the movie Saturday, 02/28/04. I thought the movie was probably as close as you could get to the reality of what Christ suffered. It was very heart breaking to see how people could be so brutal.

I think this is great that this movie is touching all these lives. I cant wait to see the movie....I think all the critics that want to say that this movie is the bloodiest and most gruesome movie they have ever seen they need to place themselves there at that time and think about what it would have been like then....This is real and people need to realize what Jesus has done for us....He took this pain so that we might be forgiven....

Most accurate presentation of the crucifixion I ever witnessed.

The movie's purpose is to bring more peole to Jesus.  The movie is about forgiveness.  Anyone who tries to make more of it is obviously anti-Christian.

Honestly, I am tired of the media and the "critics" bashing Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion of the Christ. I am a husband and father of four child. At some point in my children's life, I will require they watch the movie. They have a right to see what Jesus Christ endured for them and everyone else on this planet. I am tired of hearing people say, "It's too violent." What are people thinking? Do people really think a cruicifixiton is a game. Do people think it was a pretty sight? Isaiah, the Biblical prophet, says that Jesus was beaten so bad that he was not even recognized as a man.

I am a little sickend that I am living in a country that has no problem showing homosexuality, promiscuous behaviour, and every foul word on national television where any child can see it, but gripe and argue about a movie that could be the most powerful evangelical tool in 2000 years. What is wrong with this picture? Filmmakers have no problem making a movies such as Saving Private Ryan, Seven, Blade, etc. These are movies where people are killed in some of the most heinous ways. In Saving Private Ryan you see people killed with their guts hanging out, people walking around holding their severed arm. Blade is about vampires killing people for food. Seven is a disguting movie about the "Seven Deadly Sins" for the Bible. The way that the filmmaker portrayed the movie was more than horrific. No one complained about these movies. Let us face the truth: the media is against a decidedly Christian movie that could lead people to give their heart to Jesus. That is what all the problem is about.

Jesus Christ came to earth as a mortal by choice. He did not have to go through all that pain and torment. However, He choose to go through all that for us. One the questions that I have is have any of these so called critics seen the movie. If not how dare they judge something they have not even seen. Instead of insulting Mr. Gibson and The Passion, why don't you encourage people to go watch the movie for themselves with an open mind.

"He came to His own and His own did not receive Him.  But as many as received Him He gave them the right to become the children of God." (John 1:11-12)
Jesus Christ said: "Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again.  No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of Myself.  I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again.  This command I have received from my Father."(John 10:17-18).
 
Jesus' death was voluntairy, an act of love to all would accept it, no one "killed" Him.
