Get Bible straight from the source, not from movies

Re: “A biblical paradox” (Editorial, March 2).

What would Jesus say about the $370 million netted in the United States alone by Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ?” Why are so many attracted to Hollywood and TV’s representations of the Bible and neglect the beauty of the written word? The word of God is not a source of entertainment nor is it a source for financial gain for anyone.

Give me the Stations of the Cross over Hollywood’s “The Passion of the Christ” and my own visualization of the Son of God through the writings of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

I applaud those who are encouraging efforts to change.
