Much was made of The Passion of the Christ when it was released in theaters. Now the DVD is available. This motion picture caused great controversy in the church because so many evangelicals and others praised it so highly while a few discerning Christians utterly condemned it. But for the Christian who claims the Bible alone as his or her authority for belief and practice, there should be no controversy. I intend to cover as many points as possible in a short space to show why this movie is not only unsuitable viewing for Christians, but is in fact blasphemous and a tool, not for bringing people to Christ, but for preparing them for Antichrist.
