The Passion was easily one of the most disturbing movies I've ever watched.

We show Jesus dieing because Jesus died to forgive our sins. Its kinda strange but if you are a christian, have read the bible or parts of the bible you will understand it.

Isn't a cross with Jezus on it blasphemy, since you make a picture of God? (Jezus = God)

Not to Catholics, ofcourse, the polythiëstic christians.

it's not considered blasphemous in christianity to depic god; just think if this famous picture.

there is no such thing as a polytheistic christian.

I tend to mix up the Jewish and Christian Ten Commadenments, sorry!

(i still think that there was a rule that thou shalt not make pictures of thy holiest One)

the 2nd commandment"You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them or serve them; for I The Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love Me and keep My Commandments."

it means that you shall not make images of things/animals ect. and worship them instead of god (which is the only one to be worship...)

CorTmost christian churches use a cross as the symbole of their church, a few with the image of jesus christ being crucified on it. and my question is this: why?!

he's your savior, correct? he was killed on a cross… why use it as your symbole when it aided in the killing of your savior? and why do i see so many images of christ dying on the cross? shouldn't you be praising his life, not his death?

is it because he suffered on it? that honestly can't be it… lots of people in those times were killed by crusifiction. hell, there were even a couple guys next to christ, weren't there? i can't believe that christ dieing on the cross is the suffering for our sins that he went through; esspecially since many in that day went through the same thing.

i mean, if he had been around more recently and was shot to death, would a gun be the image of your church?

Been watching Bill Hicks?

Well Dread, it all depends on interpretation of the Holy Book. Katholics have decreed that the images have a purely instructive/educational meaning, to show the greatness of God. The Orthodox Church (843 decreed that the images are worth honoring (iconodulen),...

And there were fanatics who wanted to destroy the Sixtine chapel, because of the naked boys (ignudi) and picturing of God.
