I Crucified Jesus Christ, My Savior (My Response to Jews Over the Passion)
Patriot Paradox ^

Posted on 02/21/2004 6:15:29 PM PST by sonsofliberty2000

Jewish leaders are still trying to rally up their troops for the horror that is The Passion of the Christ. Why? They feel that they are being portrayed as the ones who killed Jesus, and they are the only ones that did so. They are gravely mistaken. I killed Jesus. So did you. Perhaps I held one of the nails, and you slung the hammer, and hit it with the fury and vileness of your sins. I know I had a swing at the hammer too, and there was a long line behind me, the hate and disgust dripping from the brows of each. Who took the whip to his back? I'm sure I had a swing or two in that department as well, and when the crowd chanted crucify him, I chimed in unison with people I walk down the streets with each day.

Did the Jews crucify him? Yes, as did the Romans, and the Greeks. His twelve disciples, and his mother and Joseph also played a part. The Egyptians were there, and the Gauls too. People all over the world then, and those since. The Pope was in the company, as was Hitler and Stalin. We all crucified Him, and we all owe Him the dignity to allow Him not only to die for our sins, but to accept His salvation. The blood on your hand paid for your sins. Don't wash it off, that blood is clean and refreshing, and the only thing clean on your vile body.

It's not that I am a bad person. He volunteered, but if it wasn't for Adam's original sin, He would have never been needed to make the sacrifice. Alas, what-ifs are meaningless beside the cross. The fact is that though we each have sinned, He has paid the price. Instead we should strive to live up to the sacrifice made. He paid the price, why waste the ticket?

Do you feel that you are without sin? All have sinned and come short of the glory of God. I am no better then the next person, and I may be more evil then you. Remember that when the Passion does come out, and that when you buy your ticket the people in line around you drove the nails into his left hand. The ticket lady, she held the nail. The concession people, they drove the nail in His right hand, and you may have had a hand in nailing it to the cross. and when you go in to take your seat, and see the crowd ahead of you taking theirs, imagine them jumping up and yelling, "Crucify Him!" Those on the screen, even the guy playing Jesus, they held the last nail, and drove it into His feet. And we each pierced His side, while He died for each of those that crucified Him...

I read your post quickly because my son wants to get on, but I'm wondering if the film makes the point you did--that we killed Jesus. Pardon me if you made the point and I missed it...I've got a teenager breathing down my neck, lol.

Great point and AMEN!

I'm not sure, but that is the point I feel God made, that we all are responsible with our sin.

We owe much to Judaism as to the founding of Western Civilization:

Judaism’s Sexual Revolution: Why Judaism (and then Christianity) Rejected Homosexuality

It was for the uplifting of the Family.

Pretty much says what I think about it.

Better to talk about this, rather than hide or try to hide the facts.

They are way too anal about this.

I am just amused at all the efforts to trash Gibson and this film. He overcame many demons to make this film. The liberal media may as well save their breath and their ink. Nothing will stop this film from being a success, and more importantly, having an effect on those who see it.

FYI, just heard on FoxNews that Gibson is going to be on O'Reilly Tuesday night.

Mel Gibson said it openly when he was asked if the Jews crucified Jesus. He said "we ALL did."

And it was HIS hand that held the nail in the film

It was MY sin that put Jesus on the cross, no single race or people, but the sins of each of us, that caused Him to suffer and die.

I'm scared to see the film, but I think we all need to.

You will indeed contemplate what your role or participation may have been or is. Having seen the film, I say that without doubt.

Great! I will make sure to watch...Also tomorrow on PAX T.V there will be a special on the making of the film..

Gibson endured alot of B.S but it failed because G-d has been riding the storm with him all the way through!

I think the point is made in the film, albeit in a subtle manner.

Mel Gibson has a cameo in the film as the Roman soldier whose hand drives the first nail into Jesus' hand.

P.S. Don't forget the Pax TV special on the Passion Sunday night and Tuesday night.

I read on another thread about the special on PAX. Of all the 200 plus (mostly crappy) stations I get, can't believe I don't get that one. Just wondering, what does PAX stand for?

I'm scared to see the film,

Me too. I had a strong reaction to Mel's interview with Diane Sawyer and the few clips of the movie which were shown.

I didn't kill him. I didn't have anything to do with it. And if he wanted to take the fall for my sins, well, that's on him. I never sinned in the first place. In fact, I wasn't even around at the time.

Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you
crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the 'stone
which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.' Nor is there salvation in any other,
for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:10-12 NIV

Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of
the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being
the chief cornerstone, Ephesians 2:19 NIV

Therefore it is also contained in the Scripture, "Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he
who believes on Him will by no means be put to shame." Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by
men, but chosen by God and precious, you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy
priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. Therefore it is also contained in
the Scripture,"Behold, I lay in Zion A chief cornerstone, elect, precious, And he who believes on Him will by no
means be put to shame." Therefore, to you who believe, He is precious; but to those who are disobedient,"The
stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone," and "A stone of stumbling And a rock of
offense." They stumble, being disobedient to the word, to which they also were appointed.But you are a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him
who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of
God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:6-10 NIV

So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a
sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed. Isaiah 28:16 NKJV

Jesus said to them, "Have you never read in the Scriptures: "The stone which the builders rejected Has become
the chief cornerstone. This was the LORD's doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes'? Matthew 21:42 NIV

Have you not even read this Scripture: "The stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the LORD's doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes'?" Mark 12:10-11 NIV

Then He looked at them and said, "What then is this that is written: "The stone which the builders rejected Has
become the chief cornerstone'? Luke 20:17 NIV

I've seen trailers, and they're awful.

But I think it's important for everyone (especially Christians) to see this and get a better understanding of the suffering that Christ went through for us.

See the film.

Jesus suffered like this, and died for YOU, whether you accept that or not.
