The Passion of the Christ is an Ecumenical Puppet!

I have uploaded a warning video on my ministry YouTube channel that can be viewed here: www.youtube.com/christ4life316 about the film The Passion of the Christ by Catholic director Mel Gibson back in 2004. And though it came out 6 years ago it is STILL reeking havoc on the Christian world.

My fellow born again believers…my true brothers and sisters IN CHRIST JESUS BY FAITH ALONE…The Passion of the Christ movie IS A CATHOLIC MOVIE and is being used as an Ecumenical puppet to lure unsuspecting Protestants in, dangling it in front of your clouded eyes to soften you up before Rome latches on and brings you back to the “Mother Church” as Rome itself refers to “herself.” It also serves as a distraction for doctrinal purposes. If you focus more on the outward appearance than the meat inside, Rome can win you over that way too!

WE MUST BE CAREFUL believers!!!!! The compromise between Rome and Protestants has grown so much you could see it from space! I have already documented the compromise in other articles here on Faith Writers. The reason I am doing a video warning on YouTube is to wake up those users who claim to be Christian who use film clips from Passion of the Christ as though it represents the true gospel and true Biblical Christianity! But I can just hear it now, “Oh Chris you are just being hateful and disparaging to our “separated brethren!”

First of all, Catholics ARE NOT MY OR BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY’S separated brethren…THEY ARE THE MISSION FIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am going to provide some fast facts here for you to consider along with website links to further investigate this matter.

The following is a quote from the huge Catholic TV channel EWTN:

“Mel Gibson has given the world its most powerful cinematic portrayal of the Mother of Jesus precisely as the Co-Redemptrix in his blockbuster film, The Passion of the Christ.” “It is not Jesus alone, but all the disciples (Peter, John, the Magdalene), who call Mary, ‘Mother.’ On Calvary, Mary receives from Jesus her designation as universal Mother.”
http://www.ewtn.com/library/MARY/pasmarco.htm

The film has been described as the Rosary put to film. Its source material comes mostly from the works of a Catholic Mystic named St. Anne Catherine Emmerich, called “The Dolorous Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ.” His path from Pilate to Golgotha is called the Stations of the Cross put to film. There are bits and pieces of the gospel in the film to make it “appear” legit but even more content comes from Emmerich’s mystical New Age Catholic mumbo jumbo writings. Consider the content on the following site:

http://www.av1611.org/Passion/passion.html

Consider the following statement from Jim Caviezel, the lead actor from the film, “I think it is very important that we have mass every day--at least I need that to play this guy.” Did you catch that? Jim said he HAD to have Mass everyday to “play this guy.” That is disgusting!!! Personally I do not think that Jesus should be portrayed on film but again that is just MY opinion. One of the parts of Jim’s statement that really gets me is his careless attitude toward Jesus’ name, by saying “this guy” like he was just a person from history. Jim’s gonna find himself kneeling before Jesus some day and confessing his name and that he is Lord to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:10-11 KJV). You can find that and more information here:

http://www.wordofhisgrace.org/passion.html

If there could be anything worse than what I have stated or what you have read in the links I am providing it is this. Gibson used actresses in the Passion film who were porn stars or had done porn or some form of porn/death smut films:

“Monica Bellucci, the actress who plays Mary Magdalene in The Passion, posed for the ‘2001 GQ Italia Totally Nude’ calendar.

The French film, Irreversible, which Monica Bellucci (aka Mary Magdalene) plays a leading role, features total male and female nudity with violent and filthy perverted sex scenes including homosexual S&M acts.

Scoop news agency says, ‘. . . the film delivers a stomach-churning opening punch set in 'Rectum,' a sado-masochist gay club.’ Monica performs in a 10 minute perverted-sex, graphic and violent sodomy rape scene.

The sleaze provoked veteran movie critic of 25 years, Jack Mathews of The New York Post, to write:

‘You may feel debased. . . I won't be surprised if an audience member somewhere leaves his seat in the midst of the rape scene and tries to get at the projectionist.’ (Mathews)

According to Scoop news agency:

‘The movie, Irreversible, premiered at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, 'Irreversible' proved so shocking that 250 people walked out, some needing medical attention. . . Fire wardens had to administer oxygen to 20 people (at the Cannes Festival) who fainted during the film - which includes a 10-minute depiction of sodomy [of Monica Bellucci], and also contains graphic scenes of rape and murder.’ (Scoop)

Movie critic, Mathews, adds this frightening professional opinion of Monica's Irreversible:

‘France, where mainstream filmmakers have been taking sexuality and sexual violence to unprecedented extremes in recent years, the elevated shock quotient of Irreversible is nearly a demonic achievement.’ (Mathews)

And friends, these are professional secular people trained and prepared for such films!

Fire brigade spokesman Lieutenant Gerard Courtel said of Irreversible:

‘In 25 years in my job I've never seen this at the Cannes festival. The scenes in this film are unbearable, even for us professionals.’ (Scoop)

For that kind of severe nauseating response from them - Irreversible is pure, 100%, unadulterated violent filth!

Monica Bellucci, of The Passion, calmly says of the filthy and vile, Irreversible:

‘This is a film that people love or they hate, but it's good to have these kinds of extremes.’ No wonder Gibson chose Monica for the extreme graphic blood and gore-fest of The Passion. As the old saying goes, ‘Birds of a feather flock together.’ Or as the Word of God says, ‘Can two walk together, except they be agreed?’ Amos 3:3.

Searching Google with ‘Monica Bellucci’ and porn will return a whopping 44,100 hits of extreme graphic vile and filth!

What about those Christian young people who viewed The Passion and now innocently search the internet for some info on Monica and get 44,000 pages of wicked vile and filth! Don't tell me it does not happen.  I have already received emails from some of the surprised innocent victims! Some of the Monica Bellucci laced ‘porn sites’ will literally take over your computer browser replacing your browser's home page with their filth. You have to cancel or re-boot to get out of their filthy sewers.  This happened to me personally many times simply researching this chapter!

Rosita Celentano, who plays Satan is not exactly your cute ‘little girl next door.’ A Google search with ‘Rosita Celentano’ will pop-up over 6,000 pages of porn-garbage. She has starred in such wonderful movies as ‘Diary of a Porn Star’ (which is a gay porn star).

Maia Morgenstern, who plays the virgin Mary in The Passion is not exactly pure. She starred in the move, ‘The Whitman Boys’. It is a bizarre death film which contains prostitution, animal sacrifices, violence and nudity. One review describes it as,’ two brothers become obsessed with death after the death of their father. They investigate the cemetery, dissect small animals, and then meet a young prostitute who becomes an important presence in their lives’ (Hollywood). The ‘warning’ on CVMC's film site reads: Contains ‘adult themes; brief nudity; sexual themes; violence’ (CVMC).

Claudia Gerini, who plays Pilate's wife in The Passion, is also very popular in the Internet ‘Hall of Scum’. A Google search on ‘Claudia Gerini’ and porn will infect your computer (and mind) with over 6,000 hits of depraved vile.”

All of the above quotes came from the website below:

http://www.av1611.org/Passion/passion.html

Anne Catherine Emmerich was subject to horrific visions of the Passion (inspired by devils) and her accounts of these visions were put to paper. Reputed to be a Stigmatic (one who receives the signs of the Crucifixion in their hands and feet), Anne’s totally non-Biblical visions are so outlandish only someone like Mel Gibson could have been attracted to her book. But he is not the only one that has fallen prey to her writings that make up the marrow of the Passion film. Sadly it is Evangelicals or anyone calling themselves a Christian. When this monstrosity came out it was endorsed by Rome and loved by the secular world, raking in millions of dollars!

A list of “Christians” who slobbered over this thing can be found on numerous sites:

http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/BookReviews/movies/passion.htm
http://www.seekgod.ca/gibsoncomments.htm

I am going to show you some of the truly sad and pathetic comments and praises given to this film as found in the above link: (the seekgod link)

This first one was no surprise at all since I have already exposed his connection to Rome, “Billy Graham Evangelistic Association > Billy Graham, President, Tuesday November 25, ‘After watching The Passion of the Christ, I feel as if I have actually been there. I was moved to tears. I doubt if there has ever been a more graphic and moving presentation of Jesus' death and resurrection – which Christians believe are the most important events in human history.’ ‘The film is faithful to the Bible's teaching that we are all responsible for Jesus' death, because we have all sinned,’ Graham continued. ‘It is our sins that caused His death, not any particular group. No one who views this film's compelling imagery will ever be the same.’"

This next quote is from a group that has sold itself out to Rome, “Promise Keepers >Brian W. Blomberg > VP and Chief Development Officer > ‘The Passion is one of the most amazing images of the real account of the Crucifixion. What struck me most was the gritty, in your face account of the ultimate hero Jesus Christ. Although graphic and brutal, it is a film worth taking your children and friends to witness on the big screen. This may be the next great evangelism tool of our time.’”

The next one is from the homosexual sell out Ted Haggard, “National Association of Evangelicals >Ted Haggard , President > NAE Release, July 22, 2003: The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) affirms the importance of the authentic retelling of the New Testament accounts in Mel Gibson’s latest film, The Passion. The NAE has established this position of support for the film in response to numerous attacks leveled at Gibson and the film. In interviews on CNN and various radio networks, Ted Haggard, President of the NAE has described The Passion as, ‘A beautiful, wonderful account of the last twelve hours of the life of Jesus Christ. It is consistent with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.’ At a special showing in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Haggard, along with 30 other prominent evangelical leaders, reviewed the film and encouraged Gibson to release it with minor stylistic adjustments. All acknowledged the biblical accuracy of Gibson’s creative dramatization of the historical account. ... ‘The movie portrays historical accounts realistically, but the Body of Christ worldwide does not blame Jewish people for the crucifixion.... He maintained that evangelical Christendom values the realistic portrayal of Jesus' last day and believes that the final effect of The Passion will be positive for Judaism in America and around the world....’”

This next one is by Christian Psychologist(?) James Dobson, “Focus on the Family> James Dobson, Chairman: ‘It is deeply moving, powerful, and disturbing. A film that must be seen - although the graphic scenes of the scourging of Jesus are emotionally wrenching.’ (From an email to Icon)”

The next one is from Pat Robertson, another sell out, “Christian Broadcasting Network > Pat Robertson, Chairman and CEO > ‘...the finest work that has ever been done on this subject. ... The action is gripping, and I believe that having the dialogue in Latin and Aramaic adds tremendously to the dramatic effect...More than anything your portrayal of the suffering of Jesus is with a few exceptions in total accord with the biblical narrative. It is therefore wonderfully authentic...I understand there are at least 50 million evangelicals in the United States and nearly as many Roman Catholics...It will be my pleasure to use whatever facilities we have available at The Christian Broadcasting Network to help you publicize this outstanding work.’” (From a letter to Icon)

This next one is from the mega sell out TBN folks, “Trinity Broadcasting Network > Paul Crouch, Jr. > ‘All I can say is Whoa! And get ready! It is one of the most powerful things I've ever seen. ... ... it makes you want to take all Biblical epics and most "Christian" films and throw them right in the trash. (Including many of ours!!) This will do for "Jesus" movies what "Saving Private Ryan" did for war pictures. Every Christian MUST go see this movie and hold Mr. Gibson up in prayer. He's going to take a lot of heat for this project, but if we'll support him, this movie could have a profound spiritual effect on millions of people.’” (From a TBN email)

The last one I will quote here is from Rick Warren, the author of the Purpose-Driven drivel and Seeker-Friendly fringe, “Rick Warren >Pastor – Saddleback Church >Author – Purpose Driven Life > ‘Brilliant, biblical – a masterpiece.’” (Comments following a screening)

You can read the rest for yourself. The level of compromise in the statements is staggering trust me! This is a very serious issue believers…I did not just do this article for my health. You need to pay attention to the subtleties of the Roman Catholic Church or you may find yourself ensnared before you know it.

I will leave you with this. For anyone who has watched The Passion of the Christ film, do you remember the ending? Think hard ok…it is very important. If you don’t remember go back and watch the ending…that is the resurrection scene. I will describe it for you: The screen is dark until the morning light from the sun begins to come in as the stone door is rolled away which reveals his wrappings settling onto the place where his body was. Once the tomb is opened we see the Catholic Jesus sit up. He then stands up and totally nude at that, with his hands at his sides where we see him from his right side with the nail hole in his hand before he walks out.

BELIEVERS…MEL GIBSON AND THE CATHOLIC CHURCH TOTALLY SCREWED THAT UP!!! Their version of the resurrection is NOT the way it is depicted in Holy Scripture! Let me show you. Please read the following accounts of the resurrection in your King James Bible: Matthew 28:1-10; Mark 16:1-11; Luke 24:1-12; John 20:1-18. Each description varies in some degrees but that is ok. If each gospel read exactly the same we would only need one of them but this is how God did the gospels. It is like say, after the disaster of 9-11, someone gave you a pen and a pad of paper and asked you to write down what you saw, then did the same with three other people…you would get stylistically different accounts, meaning basically the same but with a few details that may vary from each other. That DOES NOT mean the gospels “contradict” each, it just means they vary in some details which is fine. I believe this is what God intended and set the gospel up this way, since the Holy Ghost wrote them after all.

My point here is that in Scripture, when the stone door was rolled away by an angel…JESUS WAS ALREADY RESURRECTED…HE WAS NOT STILL INSIDE THE TOMB…HE DID NOT WALK OUT!!!!!!! Come on believers, search your KJV inspired, infallible, inerrant pure and preserved Bible for crying out loud!!! The ONLY thing in his tomb were his linen wrappings when the door was opened. He was long gone BEFORE the door opens and then appears to the women that followed him.

If you don’t own the film on DVD you can type in the following link in your browser’s address field to watch the ending that someone posted on YouTube with some adlibbed musical scoring:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVnr4gQACr4

Needless to say the ending of the Catholic film The Passion of the Christ is VERY un-Scriptural!

I hope this article is helpful to all of you and I hope you will check out the websites I have put in here too. And by all means do your own research on the movie too.

I am already at work on my next article for Faith Writers, detailing the little known or forgotten history behind Pagan (winter solstice)/Catholic-created Day…what we call Christmas! What, you didn’t know Jesus was NOT born on December 25, or that cutting down trees to decorate them is an abomination to God (Jeremiah 10:1-4 KJV). Or that it was the RCC that decided to make the Pagan winter solstice day (actually it was Dec. 21-24 with Dec. 25 being the capstone where Pagans celebrated the birth of the new sun or Sun-god, a rite dating back to Baal as found in the O.T., in their mind as representative of the god they worshipped) the birthday of Jesus in an effort to make the Pagans Catholic by adopting all their feasts and festivals and “holy” days? And that’s just part of the problem behind this Pagan holiday.

Same goes for Easter…oh you didn’t know about that either? The word Easter does belong in the Bible where it is only found in the KJV but mistranslated in the corrupt Modern versions to be Passover. If you look at Acts 11:27-12:4 KJV you will see this for yourself. Easter was the Pagan holiday for the Spring time celebration signifying the supposed “resurrection” of Tammuz (who is named in the Bible Ezekiel 8:14 KJV) that was held at the same time as Passover or as it is also referred to as the days of unleavened bread. Every aspect of Easter and Christmas goes clear back to Pagan Babylonian mystery religions that the Catholic Church adopted into itself to seize control of the people to outdo competing religions. The Apostle Paul does warn us against celebrating such things in Galatians 4:8-11 KJV.

You have to remember (and this is documented) that NO FIRST OR SECOND CENTURY BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANS CELEBRATED JESUS’ BIRTH OR RESURRECTION (more specifically on a certain day in the year). We can celebrate those events in our hearts EVERYDAY BELIEVERS! We do not need the RCC to tell us we have to do it on this hand-picked day. We’ve gotten most everything from Ancient Rome like the names of our months like August was named after Augustus Caesar and July was named after Julius Caesar. It is truly remarkable how much we owe what we have to this day to Pagan Rome and even further back to Pagan Babylon and when it comes to Christmas (Christ-Mass) and Easter, we Christians just eat it up as fact or even as tradition!

The Puritans banned those holidays in America in the 1600’s because they knew the Pagan origins behind them. Unfortunately, they have become such a large part of yearly life and celebration that there would be no way to stop believers from celebrating them! So if none of the information in this article influences you to wise up, then go ahead and keep celebrating Pagan holidays. Just don’t try to tell Jesus you preferred to continue doing it even though you knew better!

And don’t hate me because I warned you, just like Paul did:

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” (Galatians 4:16 KJV)

God Bless!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Hi Chris I believe that as we are in end times the Holy Spirit is sending His truth into the world to prepare His bride to be pure and blameless. Thank you for being obedient and letting Him work through you. Yes the road you chose, is not the popular one. None of the prophets were popular, but we have a choice: To follow the beast or Yahusha(Jesus),the true road is narrow.

Hi Chris, I actually watched the movie and I had to look away several times because it was just too nasty for me! I was shocked to read in your article, the female actors were ex-porn stars, but that's Gibson for you! I think it's fair to say Gibson is mentally unwell, and that's putting it politely. Further to your article regarding Pagan festivals, I am well aware of this. I know the Church slotted in those dates to make converts- yet, I must say I love Chritmas, as it unites families just for a brief period, which is wonderful! Thank you for your most interesting article, looking forward to your next one.
Cherry Bieber 28 Dec 2010
This is a very good article! I have never felt in any way compelled to watch this movie...much to the dismay of many associations who feel I am "missing out" on something deeply "spiritual." My main reason at first for not seeing it is that I have never understood why any Christian would purposely place themselves in the position of seeing such horrid brutality. These are dark days and, sadly, the silver screen is such an effective lure. I pray your warning will be heeded.
