I haven't read his book yet, but do agree with these opening thoughts of his.

Saw The Passion on opening night and a second time with my nephew and niece. Will be seeing again with a large group of friends on Easter Sunday and intend on buying any dvd that will eventually come out.

Thanks - I appreciate the link. The book should be a good read. Not only has our faith been under attack but our country as well. We really do need to wake up here in America. I spend a lot more time in prayer and re-reading the bible now, that's for sure.

Good premise, however I believe this guy is a "Kingdom Now" preterist. He is friends with Gary Demar a full blown preterist.
Preterist believe that Christ's second coming happened in 70 AD, and that we are living in the millennial kingdom now.
They are very much Christian activist in the extreme because they believe that the final act is currently in progress. They are also notoriously anti-Israel, because they believe Israel is cursed and no longer on God's agenda. Thus they don't support America's stand on supporting Israel. That is just the tip of the iceberg regarding their issues.
In my opinion, we cannot be in the millennial kingdom because Satan will be chained during Christ's 1,000 year reign. If this is the millennium, Satan's chain is far to long. Also I invest little stock in theological scholar's views on Israel from before 1948 when they pontificate on Israel's position with God. Martin Luther's anti-semetic sentiments were because he didn't take the Bible literal enough, because God regathered the Jews (Israelis) as a nation back in the land in 1948 exactly as He said He would.
God Bless you.

(Alignment is critical!)
I put this link up constantly, because it is so good and so many people haven't seen this article yet because the mod moved it to chat.
Why does Hollywood hate the Passion?
The reason is because the Jesus depicted in the movie The Passion of The Christ is not the Jesus of the 21st century.
"The Passion is a visual depiction of the Jesus of the New Testament. This Jesus is not acceptable these days. I saw the movie the other night. Now I understand why the critics have labeled it as controversial. They do not want a suffering Jesus; they want a Hollywood Jesus.
"Mel Gibson is taking heat in the Hollywood community because he produced a movie about the wrong Jesus, a Jesus who willingly chose to undergo suffering and to go to the cross."

Thanks for posting this, I've passed this on to my email list. I've been reading this, it is a very good book. Hope we can help him get it published.
I'm going to pass this on to the 700Club and TBN.
