Is “The Passion” Expressing God’s Passion?

Theater box officeAmerican Christianity is buzzing with questions, debates, and reviews about Mel Gibson’s latest blood and guts movie. Many are asking, “Should I go to see it, or is it right to go to the theater and watch this movie?” I myself have been quite intrigued with the “conservative Christian” response to this movie. I have been shocked at how many Christian leaders have gone to see the movie, so they can “answer all the questions” that come to them.

I think that most of our readers already know how I feel about such a sacrilegious display of the holiest scenes in human history. However, it seems like a fitting time to pay my respects to movies, and the dangers of drama one more time.

The Dangers of Drama

"Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful."
I Corinthians 4:1-2

There is a serpent lurking in the tree of knowledge today, calling to Christians everywhere, saying, "Come and eat of this new fruit." I see many dangers in these seemingly moving methods of "edification.
