One of the things that Hollywood does well is capture the epic nature of the battle between good and evil.
The list of films that do this is long. Having just seen the second Thor movie, it is fresh in my mind.
The fate of the whole world — make that, universe — hangs in the balance. Good men and women must fight to prevent despicable, heartless liars from ushering in the reign of complete darkness. Betrayal, murder, thievery and death must be stopped.
And so there is great battle.
Am i talking about Thor? Yes, but only to the extent that Thor mirrors the reality we live in.
The situation has reached the point that we need Hollywood to produce epic action films such as Thor, The Lord of the Rings, and many others to grab our attention and wake us to the truth embedded in scripture.
After all, where do these stories come from? They are all borrowed from The Great Drama which God has written. The Great Drama which continues to unfold all round us.
We Christians, the very ones who should not need reminding about the truth of The Great Drama, have been anesthetized by the Deceiver. Porn, and the porn culture in which we live, are potent drugs the Evil One uses to seduce us. So many of us have been taken out of The Great Drama by them.
It is time to rouse from our slumber. It’s not too late.
