Great Sermon! I don't see why anyone Christian or otherwise would want to see such a sick & voilent portrayal about how man physically killed G_D. I feel that even Jesus himself would not have liked this movie to be made or shown. Thus the being struck by lightning of the actor while making this film should have been more than a hint for them. We as human beings/the human race should oppose violence in every way, shape & form. It is also very disturbing that they have & are showing this film to children under the age of 17. It should have been given an NC-17 rating but of course the profiteers chose otherwise. Christ is the prince of peace and there is nothing good or peaceful about the Passion. How much of the millions upon millions of dollars of his profit will Gib$0n give to the poor, needy & hungry of this world? Probably not much. Thank you for your sermon & efforts Pastor. In Jesus name...
Ungodly Passion for The Passion It is sometimes difficult to remember why some of us take the particular stances that we take in relation to the Word of God. Especially when we look in the paper and see how many $$$ the
"Passion" has already amassed. I am alarmed, but no shocked at the many well-known leaders in Christianity who are promoting A MOVIE to be as instructional as the The Word of God. These are indeed the last days, and unfortunately, entire local Church bodies (those with itching ears to hear)will be led by false Prophets and misguided Apostles, and given over to reprobate minds. I pray for our nation, and for those who will be saved. Thank you for your most timely message to the body.
Great Sermon! I went to the movie after the urging of leading Christian people. I am a former Roman Catholic. I was very uncomfortable with all the Catholic dogma being promoted. After hearing your message I now understand these feelings. Thank you for your message.
Great Sermon! Thank you Pastor Ovadal for your uncompromising sermon and for your desire to speak forth God's truth! I have friends who think I am foolish to oppose this movie! They say "look at the good that will come of it." May the Lord raise up more Godly, courageous Pastors like you!
Great Sermon! God help us... Apathy is everywhere...and the sheep have No Shepherds......The shepherds are gatekeepers for the one world religion wolf in Rome.....Thanks Pastor Ralph for speaking Truth in a very Dark time.
Government schooling exposed Government schooling is thoroughly exposed in this powerful sermon. I was educated in the government schools and I can tell you that what you will hear is the truth. Please download and listen to this sermon.
Great Sermon! In 2 Thes. 3:16 our Savior gives peace, not as this world knows peace as temporary, but as eternally lasting, perhaps beyond our imagination John 14:27 does this as well.
The movie is a defilement; a negation of God's Word and peace. It is a commercial travesty with Mel's excess money going to Rome. He is a catholic dogmatic who thinks he is buying a works ticket to heaven. Why aren't more true Evangelical Christian leaders coming forward and revealing this suffering story?
Concerned I think that this was a great Anti-Catholic message. I agree that the Passion was a Catholic film. But I do not see the film itself as being anti-Christian. Yes, it may present a Catholic view of the last 12 hours and there are many extra-biblical scenes in the movie but that does not make it anti-Christian. All of the criticism of Mel and the others is accurate but that does not detract from the film. As Paul says, even though they preach with wrong motives, Christ is still preached. (Phil 1:15-18) The film itself is the most accurate portrayal of the crucifixion that I have every seen. I gave me a much better understanding of what Jesus had to go through because of MY sins. To me, this is a better message to be preached.
Great Sermon! Thank you for a great sermon at a time when I have recently met with great opposition from my own pastor who has openly applauded the fact that "people are talking about 'Jesus' more than ever" and says we should use the movie as an evangelistic tool just as Paul did in the Acts 17 Mars Hill encounter. But God forbid that I should promote or have fellowship with those who do promote the movie, a blasphemous work of Roman Catholic antichrists. By disagreeing with my pastor over this issue, he has now asked me to leave the church because "he can no longer be my pastor". In short, I have been "excommunicated", according to a common practice that only a pimp of the whore of Babylon is capable of doing. But God has confirmed that I honor Him by leaving this church to His judgement which will come swiftly. I am also now convinced that this man, a former Roman Catholic, may actually not even be born-again because he really has not left his pagan "roots". So be it! I now shake the dust off my feet and move on in Christ according to Amos 3:3. I am confidant that the triune God will soon lead me to worship where He and His Dear Son are truly honored by the preaching of His Word through the power of the Holy Ghost. Pray for the members who remain under this Diotrephes!
Great Sermon! Amen,
Thank you for the truth Brother in Christ! I testified in church.
I have been admonished by an elder, my bible teacher, my dear teacher cousin, and a former catholic "Born Again" sister for my stance against this sacrelig. It is a travesty!
I say to them, as do you, "Read your bible."
Until all hear,
Great Sermon! Excellent Sermon Pastor Ovadal. This message is very important for many to hear. The Bible contains many commands to trust in the Lord.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
As followers of Christ we must live a righteous lifestyle, but we can't do this on our own. As we can't save ourselves from our sins, we can't overcome our flesh on our own. In our day and culture we are surrounded by temptation and pleasures of the flesh. We all have our own spiritual battles to fight, be we do not and can not fight these battles alone. We must turn to the Lord in prayer for strength and trust in Him for all things.
Great Sermon! What a blessing to find a Pastor who is willing to speak the truth about this ungodly film! Mel Gibson doesn't need our applause. He needs our prayers. Thank you Pastor Ovadal for your uncompromising sermon and for your desire to speak forth God's truth!
POWERFUL Sermon! Sermons like this one have convinced me to not go see this movie, and to encourage other Christians to avoid it. At the very least, ONE good thing is going to come out of this movie: Lots of Christians will be educated on the TRUTH about the Roman Church and images of Christ.
Great Sermon! I thank you for your sermon it cleared alot im not going to see the movie my roomate saw the movie and was very disturbed and he is not saved.I dont think this movie will bring any unbeliver to be saved so christians dont vote it in.you vote with your money.
