The Passion of Christ rated R.
The "R" of course is
because of the violence, the gore.
In movie terms "R" stands for RESTRICTED, but in this
movie "R" stands for RELEVANT, for REALISTIC, for it
REALLY happened for a REASON
because we were REBELLIOUS
we needed a REDEEMER
we needed to be RECONCILED
we needed to be RECOVERED
we needed to be REGENERATED.
Jesus needed to be REJECTED so that we could have a
RELATIONSHIP not just a RELIGION.
The "R" is to REMIND us to REMEMBER what Jesus did to
REMOVE our sin to RENDER Satan powerless, to RESCUE us
from eternity in hell.
The "R" rating is to show that Jesus was RESPONSIBLE
for giving you REST. As a RESULT of his death Jesus
RETIRED your debt.
The "R" rating means that some will be REPULSED, some
will REFUSE to believe, some will be RELUCTANT, some
will think you are RIDICULOUS in believing that a
death was REQUIRED.
The "R" rating means that the RESULT of sin has been
REVERSED and now through faith in Christ your REWARD
is eternity and you are now RIGHTEOUS before God
because you have RECEIVED him as the RULER of your
What a REVOLUTIONARY and RADICAL solution to REDEEM
He is RISEN!!!!!
