When we sin, do we crucify Christ all over again?

9 09 2006

Someone said something last night after the screening of the Passion of the Christ in the house church, that when we see the reality of Christ’s ordeal of suffering, he is reminded that whenever we sin, it is like making Christ going through all that again.

As i was reading my book about Roman Catholicism and Christianity, it mentions something about the Sacraments and the dogma of the Roman Catholics on the doctrines of communion, some verses that hit me and made me realised that what someone said was not right.

Jesus died once and for all for our sins, there won’t be any opportunities and chance that even when we sinned, we will not likened to put Jesus on that cross again, because in

Hebrews 9:27, 28, says “Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people, and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him;

in Hebrews 10:18, “And where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.”

Such is my assurance, that my sins and yours are atoned for once and for all! And i need not to continue to offer up sacrifices for my sin, because my God is just and righteous to forgive our sins if we were to Confess them (1 John 1:9), and such, is the promise!

That is such a tramatic movie, isn’t it? I wish other talented filmmakers could create other films about Jesus … not just His death, but His ministry.

There are others, like the Gospel of John…. i think this movie ranks above them, not that Jesus’ ministry is not important, but the crux of christian faith lies in His death and His resurrection, without this two, there won’t be a christian faith.

I don’t think I’ve seen the Gospel of John. Is it one that was made recently?

I remember watching a Jesus movie made in Italy in the 1960s. The Jesus in that movie never smiled and had piercing eyes. He hardly spoke and looked quite fierce. I wonder if it was because the movie was made in Roman Catholic country.

It was released around the same time as Passion of the Christ, it was basically the entire book of John the Gospel.
Ya i think that’s how usually Roman Catholics portray Jesus, and they have teary and compassionate eyes for Mary. Well, they are, Roman Catholics, can’t blame them for this and that, right? 🙂
