Philippians 4:8, "Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things."

I saw The Passion of the Christ tonight. I'll save the majority of my thoughts for a later date, after I'm pretty sure most of you all have seen it. There is a certain power in the imagery, and emotion when coupled with truth in the soul can be a force for good. I imagine that there will be many who become emotional because of Mel Gibson's movie, and go in bizarre directions with it. The enemy can use this work of man just the same as he does the gospels, which were inspired. I will say this: the gospels are the product of the Holy Spirit; even with technicolor, the movie is only the product of men; it is both powerful at times, and painful in both its inclusions and exclusions. Go see it, if you will, then by all means read the gospel accounts of the death of our Lord.
