Superheros are intolerant... and we love them for it
It has been rightly said that if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything. In our growing totalitarianistic - aka “tolerant”culture, where we are told to tolerate everything, except those who believe things from the Bible, It is a surprising yet not-thought-out phenomena that we love Superheroes.
You see superheroes aren’t politically correct and are incredibly intolerant. Some people feel the need to express themselves through theft, destruction, taking over the world, and using bathrooms not meant for them, and who are we to say that is “wrong”. Since in a relativistic world harm and wrong are just perceptions. If you think I’m exaggerating watch the video from a college campus on how social relativism is turning our brains to mush. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/434158/watch-college-kids-cant-explain-why-short-white-man-isnt-tall-asian-woman Thanks to Reza Zadeh for posting this.
Superheros stand for something. They don’t tolerate evil. They use equal and opposite force, and we call that Good. Kind of reminds me of God in the Old Testament. Batman doesn’t give the Joker a break cause he had a traumatic upbringing. Superheroes live by standards that they consider absolute. I think that is why we love them, and the plethora of movies surrounding them are so popular. I think that is why Jesus is popular, except Jesus asks something of us. We have to join him or reject him. Superheroes represent truth, but Jesus claimed to be the TRUTH. The Source of life itself.
Jesus forces a choice on us, unlike superheroes. That is also why He and we are often hated.
Who is your favorite super hero and how do they reflect the truths found in Jesus and the Bible?
Stay tuned, I will be talking about how we will become super-human. It’s not through evolution… sorry X-men. So keep your eyes peeled on the sky, cause you never know Who is going to show up… and I hope He does soon.
