You and me both. I heard Modine on the radio today. He sounded unsure himself.

When times are tough, many turn to religion. And with a world in turmoil, from roiled economic markets to spoiled environment, Matthew Modine is turning to Jesus. But instead of prayer, he's offering analysis and a compelling argument.

Modine is on tour with his new short film, "Jesus Was a Communist," which offers a discussion of the New Testament's messages in the context of poverty, pollution and political unrest. A selection at film festivals throughout the world, the message the veteran actor is presenting also address the Occupy Wall Street movement happening throughout the world and how it relates to the Bible.

"His revolution involved a dramatic change in the way people thought; progressive and liberal thinking in a time of Empire," the film's synopsis reads. "With no army and no weapons, he led people toward a new, more humane way of thinking; toward a philosophy of love and forgiveness. These are ideas explored at this very moment in lower Manhattan and by thousands of Americans across the United States."

Do you think that Jesus presents himself in the exact same way to each individual, stevieray?

I was wondering if my line might look different from your line and whether it might not even be in a different place from yours, and whether from my viewpoint I might seem to be approaching the line that he gives me to see, while I might appear to be walking away from the line that he has given you to see.

very interesting concept....since God uses all things for good, and we all have different spiritual and natural gifts..I can gather where you're going with this......I know the path to God is forward and upward, and when we run off course on a rabbit trail, he's constantly working on bringing us back to the narrow path...I still think we'd all end up at the same line...does that make sense?

thought provoking..thanks!

I doubt that I'll see it. If it was on and I didn't have anything else to do, I'd watch it, but it sounds like it might be the kind of political statement that would be offensive to me. Jesus said we should give the poor the shirt off our back* so I should be able to hand over your shirt whether you want me to or not.

I will be interested to see whether I can watch this film without filing it somewhere in my political cabinet before I hear what it has to say, but that's going to be tricky. The title of the film alone will make it difficult. Communism is political.

It caught my attention because it seems to be coming from a place in the political landscape that is often openly dismissive of references to Jesus. Jesus was thoroughly apolitical when it came to matters of state. On the other hand, he strongly condemned the politics of religion.

I'm more curious to see this film than I'd be to see a film that was entitled, say, Jesus: Chief Operating Officer With Us.
