Re: ick

hmmmm, interesting point of view. Understandable too. I'm not religious at all, but I took the film in as it's the directors point of view of the tale of Christ. I would have faith in people's faith that they would resist the temptation to think this film is an accurate portrayal of all Christian religions. But then again, the masses are easily swayed....

Re: ick

I'm not particularly religious either. I believe in God but not as someone sitting in heaven and watching everyone but as a sort of embodyment of love and goodness.

The reason the movie really upset me with its angry God view was that alot of people who saw it came out scared of God. One Lady was crying.

People shouldnt fear God. That isnt right he isnt there to be feared.

Re: ick

Really?! What if this woman saw an Omen film or something like that, that would mean she would be afraid of the devil too.

That is just scary that somebody and obviously more (as hinted by you) that they would see this film as accurate. Unfortunately no matter what, if a big budget film arrives that is a story from the bible there will be contraversy. It is just unfortunate that some people take it too seriously and who fight tooth and nail that their faith is the "right one" are suddenly a film comes along and because it's in action, not in stories seems more real.

I agree with you. I have always thought the christian god was a figure that was all loving and etc, not vengeful. And it is just sad that people are afraid to live happily in fear of judgement from their god as this film has resulted in many people feeling.
