Anyone producing, writing, and directing an enormously well done film as The Passion of the Christ will be tormented by the devil for Lord only knows how long.

Exactly. He has painted a huge target on him. Pray he repents.

I have no doubt the devil has worked overtime leading Mel to temptations after he made that wonderful film i.e his drinking, divorce, etc. However, perhaps now the Lord is leading him back through scorn. Scorn is a public awareness that you are not the swell person that everyone thought you were. It is also when everyone knows that you're weak, imperfect, and sinful. Most of us don't really want such a heavy dose of self-knowledge, but self-knowledge is the key to attaining holiness in this life. While at the present time Mel may experience some pretty awful times, we should pray that he will grow closer to God in his newfound humility and move light-years forward.
I hope he discovers that his gifts and talents-his judgment, and his popularity can be taken away by God just as easily as they were given to him, and that now he may become humbled before God and man.
