I grew up under a christian household. I haven't retained everything from that religion but some of it is instilled in me. That being said I didn't find this offensive at all. The people bitching about the 'temptation' most likely haven't watched it. It's poignant and moving. I don't think it's perfect though. The final act does seem a bit long winded but I've only seen this once and look forward to seeing it again!
