Warning from Gamaliel to those who oppose Gibson's Passion

Acts 5:38-39 "So in the present case I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!"

Let the movie be shown, and see what the effect of it is. Here's a real good test for the goodness of any spiritual practice, reading, or movie: does it increase the virtues of faith, hope, and charity in those who engage in it? If so, then it is of God. If not, then it is not. Let's see what happens before we issue dire warnings of anti-semitism.
