During yet another screening of his film on the Passion of Christ, Mel Gibson predicted that "the worst is yet to come," reported Reuters.
The news service said Gibson made this comment at a screening of “The Passion of the Christ” to 4,500 evangelical Christian pastors at the Global Pastors Network conference in Orlando yesterday.
Referring to the controversies the film has created, Gibson thanked the pastors for their prayers, but warned: "I anticipate the worst is yet to come. I hope I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong."
Gibson recounted how he had been thinking and imagining the film for 12 years as he meditated on the Gospel stories of a God who became human so he could pay the price for human sin, reported Reuters.
