    Wow, Capslock, where did you get all that info? I had thought that I would see the movie since the reviews were saying how well done it was. After hearing about all the gore, though, I am rethinking that. I don't need to see that. I saw Braveheart before knowing how graphic & true to the times it would be. Several times during the show my hands flew up to cover my face. I would not go to see it again but I thought it was a good movie. I don't need to expose my self to this element to know that we live in a, sometimes, vicious world. These are historically based films but things aren't so different now, just the means. After 9-11, I stopped reading the paper, wouldn't listen to the radio, turned off the tv, skipped the internet news. I had had enough. I couldn't take anymore horror. Sure, there's been a lot of suffering, but we are human - we suffer. I am in a local choral group & we will be performing the story of Joan of Arc using a film made in 1923 or so (& with the acapello group Anonymous 4!). We've reviewed the film, those were gruesome times too. The production is very artsy, music is wonderful, it will also be a moving experience. But I will be singing, not watching the film again. It depicted her burning at the stake - very well done, esp. for the era, but there is no doubt what is happening. I will not seek out watching this film again, either. I think some of us are very sensitive to other's suffering. We don't need to view it to understand it. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

That is why He provided the only way to NOT receive THAT fate. It is also very simple. It is to have faith that God chose to send His Son to earth to die for our sins. BTW, I haven't seen the movie, but I have read the book.
    That's very true and well said, Jimscott. Thank you for posting that.

    No he isn't. In an interview Mel Gibson said: "There have been a lot of unusual things happening, good things like people being healed of diseases, a couple of people have had sight and hearing restored, another guy was struck by lightning while we were filming the crucifixion scene and he just got up and walked away."
