“ Informative Sermon with lots of facts ”
The preacher is clearly pointing out that there are major differences between the doctrines of Roman Catholicism’s Salvation and the Biblical message of Salvation. He shows that even though the movie can be used for good it's main thrust is pushing heavily on "non scriptural" Roman Catholic traditions and doctrines. This preacher shows that this movie goes miles beyond what the Bible does in its graphic obsession with physical suffering. Also much mystical attributes given to the Virgin Mary. I myself saw the movie and one scene that disturbed me was that as they were erecting the crucified Christ upright they lost balance and dropped the whole cross with Christ nailed on it so it went forward smashing Jesus body to the ground face first with the weight of the wooden cross crushing Him a massive blow. None of this is in the Bible. The Bible gives very little detail of how the torture was carried out. This preacher is not against Roman Catholic people but enlightens us about why Mel Gibson (who does what he believes in ) made this movie. He asks us some hard questions About why Evangelical Christians like it so much? Gavin Langley

“ comment on the comment ”
Not to mention the gross historical inaccuracies of "Braveheart". I am continually perplexed by preachers who condemn historical inaccuracies in the Passion movie, but effectively endorse historical inaccuracies as legitimate in secular movies... We need to have one standard and one set of weights and measures.

“ Good Sermon, BUT... ”
For the most part, this is a good message that documents the problems found in and caused by the "Passion" movie. I only take issue (and was also a bit shocked,) with the speakers endorsement of the other Mel Gibson movies such as "Braveheart", "The Patriot" and the "Lethal Weapon" series. These movies in one way or another promote ungodliness and sin among other vile things by portraying faithless living, fornication, cursing, adultery, foolish talking, covetousness, revenge, gratuitous nudity and violence, disrespect of authority, pride, drunkenness, foolishness, profanity etc. in characters that are presented to us as heroes of these films. We believers have grown too comfortable with what the world offers while the Bible is clear that we are to be holy and separate from the world. The Church needs to see the seriousness of this and repent because judgment is coming and it will begin with us first!

“ Great Sermon! ”
I got 10 copies of the passion today for My customers in my Bussiness and 10 copies of the Jesus Film " If I can use them in the part of the vinyard God has placed me" so be it. I can go where no preacher can tred, I can go where no Christian is welecome. I can be Jesus where no light has ever been. I Hope the Jesus film and the passion can help me. ( with prayer ) one client in my Gardening Company may have cancer I found out yesterday, I told her my wife and I would Pray for her. I will send a copy soon. Praise God fr the passion, I am Glad it was made by mel gibson, Who shell ever no this side of heaven Gods WILL in this movie, if it points towards the cross! then praise God, like many denomanations around the world that are imperfect but saved, If God can use an ass to bring about repentence then he can use a fil to do the same.

“ Wisdom and Balance ”
This sermon is delivered in both Wisdom and Balance. Great discernment is displayed, the Word of God upheld, mercy and guidance extended to the babes in Christ, and to other professing Christians whose discernment has waned. This is a movie that I have not seen simply because I have had no desire or need to see it. Pastor Dykstra did see the movie, and based this Sermon on his observations of it. He methodically points out the implications of major scenes in the movie and how they contrast with the Word of God. The fact that the Film was produced by a company called ICON, inc., and that icons began appearing very early in the movie are keen observations. I was beginning to think I was becomming overly "religous" because of those types observations. Now I know that I am probably not the only Christian in the world who is alarmed that even Christians see nothing wrong with watching a t.v. show titled "American Idle". These forms of subtle, yet blatant enough symbolism are the beginings of outright lawlessness creeping in to our culture.
