Interesting....Why The Passion of Christ is 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 soul. What a

REVOLUTIONARY and

RADICAL solution to

REDEEM mankind.
