The Passion of the Christ
The Passion of the Christ, is an intense look at the life of Christ. Based on the facts presented in the Bible, this movie has had a profound impact on my life.
I had never before, in reading the Bible, been able to visualize the intense violence that was perpertrated upon Jesus. I never really understood who He is. I do now.
In watching this movie I began to feel a sense of guilt, remorse and utter disgust at the treatment he received by the so called religious establishment of that day. The pain suffered by this man who was truly full of love and caring for his fellow man.
This was exactly what I needed to turn my life around for the better. I began to submerge myself in getting to know who Jesus was as a man. What he did and how he lived. The more I learned the more I wanted to learn. I have immersed myself in studying him.
This is the key I needed to be released from a prison of drugs. The strength I have gained from His life and this movie is my salvation. He loved. No more no less.
I am now a devout Christian. I am not a religious person but, I am a Christ centered person. I try daily now,to walk in His footsteps. I am no longer a slave to drugs. I am free. I have found what I needed to fill the emptiness that lived within my soul my entire life. I know I have some place waiting for me when my life in this world is over. I am sure this world is not all there is. The problems of today are not important anymore. Just being assured that there is something greater than me has given me a new perspective on life. I have now become a better person. I give back.
I think its funny how a simple movie can change a persons life for the better. I will forever look back knowing that going to see this movie is what changed my life. The pivotal point where I stopped looking at the world through a mirror and started to see the world through a window.
I would recommend this movie to everyone. More so to anyone suffering or lonely, lost and without direction. Jesus truly saves. He saved me in many different ways. This movie is an inspiration and can be a life changing experience. I am living proof.
