  • The so called "Catholic leaders" are novus ordo, so naturally would love the protestant depiction of our Savior.

    EWTN seems to like this movie also, and described the actress who plays our Holy Mother as a "devout Catholic".  There is information that she is several times divorced and remarried, the most recent ceremony was officiated at a house by a female entertainer,  If this is true, then "devout" is not the word.  
    Her spiritual condition may not be connected to the art of acting, but to put her forth as a model for others is sinful.

    In the end, everything serves God, so I trust He will use this to the good of souls.

  • I, for one, am NOT looking forward to this movie.

    Whatever shortfalls "The Passion of the Christ" had (Mel Gibson had to hold back somewhat to appease the Jews) at least Mel has the Faith. He's a bad Catholic, but a Catholic nonetheless. He may have a scandalous personal life (drunkenness, divorce/remarriage, etc.) but at least he knows the real Jesus. He knows the connection between the Last Supper and the Crucifixion (this is one of the shining points in his movie, BTW). He knows the truth, even if he personally falls short in following it.

    The best scenario is personal meditation on Our Lord, His life, and the Passion. You can't replace meditation/prayer with watching a movie. Personal meditation is always the most powerful and beneficial to one's soul. In meditation, you switch between thinking about something and actual mental prayer.

    But if you're going to watch a movie about Our Lord, it's best if it's designed by a traditional (also known as a "real" as opposed to "fake") Catholic. For many purposes, Novus Ordo doesn't count as Catholic. I've said many times how they have the name, we should give them the benefit of the doubt, etc. but that doesn't change the fact that many of them DO NOT have the same Faith as us. Some of them have indeed completely lost it, and many have lost most of it.

    Just looking at the actor they've chosen to play Our Blessed Lord, I'm inclined to never see this movie even if it were free. Not even out of curiosity. I just know it's going to be awful.

    So hardcore pornography serves God, and can be used for the salvation of souls?

    Uh...no.

  • Well, if Novus Ordo "Catholic leaders" praise a movie, that is a reason to not go and see it.

  • The novus ordo leaders also praised that movie about the Nativity where Our Lady is portrayed as seeking out foturne tellers and palm readers and where St Anne is portrayed as describing Our Lady as "one more mouth to feed".  
     
    Forget the banal novus ordo leaders, they are really an insipid lot.  Look to how the atheists and movie critics treat the movie.

    Wait.  I think it would just be better to ignore the movie altogether.

  • This already aired on the History Channel on a series called "The Bible." It was a huge success so they are just trying to milk it for all it is worth.  

    The series kept things politically correct from what I remember.  It never explained why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.    Sarah witnesses Abraham trying to kill their son and tries to prevent him from doing it.  No mention of what the 10 Commandments say. They skip  Moses breaking the tablets as well.  

    The series ignored important stories and added action sequences to make it more entertaining for a simple minded audience.  

     I  can't remember which episode I stopped watching it at but I never made it to Jesus.

    I should add that  Sampson was played by a black man.  I don't care if blacks play Bible figures, especially if it helps convert them. Blacks do nativity plays all the time. I'm fine with that. But his character was kind of confusing and it didn't flow with the rest of the cast. It felt kind of forced if you ask me.

  • There's a new movie coming out on the life of Jesus?

    Is this a TV movie or one for theaters?

    Is it out already?

    Seriously, either the news is so new or I'm really starting to live under a rock that I didn't realize I was living under.

    He permits evil, and through even the most evil of circumstances, He uses it to His glory and some good is achieved. We don't always see how, but to believe otherwise is naive.

    I tend to agree with this, Matthew.  

    When I saw the Passion of the Christ, it re-defined my meditation on the Stations and the Rosary mysteries.  And I think it was a positive influence.  

    But this new movie might be a negative influence, so I'd be better off not seeing it.  

    On the other hand, when I meet people who want to talk about it and my response is that I haven't seen it, but I have all these opinions, they'll probably think I'm hypocritical for passing judgment on a movie that I haven't seen.  So I would have to stick to asking them pointed questions about it, and see if they know why the movie portrayed a falsehood.  Then we have the problem of them defending inaccuracies on the basis of "poetic license" (even if they don't know that term) because that's what Hollywood does to every story, etc.

  • I actually read a scathing review by a protestant bible thumper. He took his bible into the movie with him and picked apart all that was wrong with it. One thing that I remember he pointed out was that Mary (I assume Magdalene) was shouting at the crowds mocking Jesus saying "stop it leave him alone" and of course the apostles were no where to be found. (feminism)

    I'm not interested in seeing it either. I had two friends on my FB page say it was "good" and "best movie ever" and I was (after reading the review by the protty) like "no thanks" . I loved Passion of the Christ however. No movie about Christ touched me so much.
    To be steeped in history is to cease to be protestant.-John Henry Cardinal Newman

    He can no longer have God for his Father, who has not the Church for his mother. If any one could escape who was outside the ark of Noah, then he also may escape who shal

  • Well, I saw my first advertisement for this movie.  I agree that it doesn't look like it will be very good.  I won't be wasting my money to go see it.

    Jewish money, Jewish influence, Jewish agenda , manipulating history, redefining Christianity according to the Judaizes protestant mold, and corrupting the minds and faith of Catholics and all others.

    As Matthew has said, you cannot un-ring the bell. Stay away and do not become a victim of the predator.

    Roma Downey and her husband Mark Burnett are both New Age Spirituality gurus.  The whole purpose of this movie had nothing to do with Jesus Christ, but everything to do with their making money off of the New Age Spirituality so-called Christians.  They are the feel-gooders and the God-loves-ya crowd.  It's not worth wasting your time and is  probably a danger to one's faith.  That the Novus Ordo and EWTN endorses this type of thing should be indication of who they are.  I call them Buddhatholics----Baptized Catholics who embrace Buddhism.....and other New Agey stuff....

  • Isn't this just a condensed and edited version of the New Testament parts of the Bible series that appeared on the History Channel? Why would anyone pay for half of what you can see in full for free?  I heard Satan isn't even in it, since the actor looked too much like Dear Leader and they didn't want to offend "The Great One".
