I've heard it suggested that the 'baby' being held by Satan is actually Satan protecting his own. It gives an understanding of how 'passionate' Satan is in holding on to death and sin, akin to a mother and child. It helps us understand the ferocity with which Satan was holding control of his domain.


My thought on the baby, that really didn't seem to be a baby is similar to the above.  There's NO GROWTH when you're in Satan's domain, hence, baby sized but with aged features - not a pretty sight!  In fact, it's repugnant looking, IMO.

There's a 30-minute interview with Mel Gibson that you may wish to listen to, if you haven't already, at family.org.
Just click on Focus on Radio, Recent Broadcasts and find it there.

Mouse, I'm a newbie here too.
This is the first thread I've read on this site.
I'm a member of several sites.
This is the only thread that I've read where there were no critisms of the movie. (Of course I could have missed them as I only skimmed the thread.)
I personally was bothered by all the Catholicism in the movie.

With the way some very well known Evangelicals were standing behind the movie, I didn't expect that much Catholicism.

Since I'm still a newbie here and haven't figured out how to navigate the site, would you be willing to link that for me or tell me where it is?

Thanks!

Oklahoma Howdy to Justme,

I'm sorry, I should have said more. Debate is a major area on the first main menu that comes up for the forum. You can also quickly access it from anywhere on the forum by going to the bottom of the page. You will see a "go to" box with an arrow on the right side. Click the arrow and scroll down to "Debate" or any other area you may want and click it.

I have some comments to make about "The Passion of the Christ."

First, it was a very powerful drama and moving... and came the closest, that I've seen to date, of any movie reliving Christ's last hours on the earth... HOWEVER what was so alarming to me is that Christ wasn't "resurrected"... he was left "dead"... which is a Catholic viewpoint (with Mel being catholic himself)... Yes, I think the world should dwell on the fact of the pain and suffering that Jesus went through for us, but it doesn't end there.... if it did then we'd all be lost! He's alive, folks and He's coming again!  I'm not sure why Mel didn't add this tidbit of fact to the movie... I was told that Mel didn't want to "detract" from the seriousness of the movie by ending in a fairy tale way with "He lived happily ever after".... but let me just say... Because He lives.... I can live! So yes, there IS a "fairy tale" ending to this story. With all the conversions that were "made" during this film... how many were converted over to Christ or just to Catholicism in general.  Huh I hope that is not the case... it's not our "denomination" that gets us in to Heaven... it's our faith in God through Christ and asking Christ into our hearts that takes us to Heaven.
*breaths*  Whew... I just HAD to get that out!

With saying all that, I'm new here!  Wink

What's that supposed to mean?  Do you think Catholics don't believe in the resurrection or something?

Quote

It's a movie, not the whole story.  That's why it's called the Passion of Christ - because it tells the Passion, not the whole thing.   To be complete it'd have to cover the whole thing from Incarnation to Pentecost and everything in between.    Gibson chose to highlight in detail one short but climatic event in the story to get people thinking (which it has certainly done).  Now it's up to the churches to catch people and tell them the rest of the story.

Did you not watch the end of the movie? Although it wasn't a very long scene, Christ was still risen. I think you need to watch it again.

I must not have caught it then, hard to do with a little one wanting to use the "restroom" every 15 minutes.

Let me rephrase this for you, m'kay?  Wink I was concerned that people were converted to "catholicism" rather than "to Christ" through movie... which, in turn, brought my statement about the only way to Heaven is through "Christ" NOT through a denomination.  Also, I didn't say I didn't like the movie, it was very touching and moving, but I must not have seen the ending that explained he had "risen."  Also, as far as I know, I thought Catholics believed that Christ was still on the cross... I mean, when you see Christ depicted it is always still on the cross or as a baby. (Crucifix, Mary and Jesus, etc) I was not coming on here to "bash" anyone, but apparently you were offended, ebia.

BTW.. thanks for the warm welcome.  Undecided
