Does the movie evoke strong emotion? Yes ? undeniably, it does. But so do lots of movies. What makes "The Passion" different is that it awakens your spirit and your soul ? it forces you to face the Truth, to come face-to-face with the Christ and the sacrifice he made for all of us. It forces you to make a conscious decision about what you are going to do with that truth in your own heart and life: This is the essence of "The Passion."
If you decide to see this remarkable, amazing, powerful, dreadful movie of truth, be prepared to see yourself in the faces of those who crucified this perfect man, the Son of God.
But if the status quo of your everyday life is exactly where you want your mind to remain, if the only thing that matters is the here and now, if you want to take the easy way out ? stay home.
The Good Book says that if you know the truth, the truth will set you free.
If you've never met Jesus, if you've never experienced who he is ? "The Passion" will introduce him to you in a very personal way. It will then be up to you to decide whether or not you want to actually know him as the Truth.
