Well, jesus, said do not make any images of Gods and worship them?
Yes, he said do not worship them, do ot pay honor and glorify them, but he was not against images that were not worshipped. First of all hamilton, do you spend money? whats on a dollar bill? How can a picture of myself be idolism? Isnt it just a picture? do I bow down to a picture?

I wonder how this can be the TRUTH when Jesus was black?

I don't see the movie as an idol. To read an account of the crucifixion, with any emotion, is to imagine what He went through for us. We were bought at a price. I think from time to time we need to be reminded of how great that price was. I think Mel's movie is going to be a powerful movie to help us feel what it really means to bear the likeness of Christ in ourselves.
Sure, people will watch it and not turn it on themselves and meditate on what it means...but what can you do? Not make the movie?

Why is it that Heathenwood is trying to stop people on going to see Mel's "The Passion of the Christ."? I know you have some of the Jewish population screaming anti-semetism (which is not mind you) and all but, what else? It irritates me.
I went down to the movie theatre here in Waldorf, Maryland and went to see if the movie was going to play. They told me "no, its too controversial"
Controversial! movie theatres can show movies with rape, murder, cursing, sick humour, movies without mesages but, as soon as a movie about Jesus comes around, heaven forbid they play it! They don't want to offend anyone! Makes me friggin sick I tell you! ITS A CONSPIRACY AGAINST CHRIST THEY ARE ALL AFRAID! Afraid to get out of their comfort zone and look the Truth in the face.
I tell you now Heathenwood, Mel's movie is going to be big, mark my words, you've missed your train and Newmarket is going to ride big! Thanks for your over dramatising this whole event, it just makes people want to see it more. I implore everyone to go see this movie especially you my Christian brothers!

Nobody goes to a movie to worship it.
