Superhero movies affirm God’s Existence

Did you want to see The Dark Knight, The Avengers, or Superman? Lets admit, these superhero movies are quite popular. But why? My answer: they prod at the very fibers of our being because deep down, we all yearn for a Savior.

Superhero movies affirm that there’s a God. So many of us go spend our twelve to twenty dollars (or more if you’re with family), to see a distinct hero save the world.

Now please consider this: What religion besides Biblical Christianity is themed around the salvation of the world? One man who comes to earth as a Hero, a Savior to the world for all who accept Him as that and turn from their sins? We humans care so much about the idea of world-saving because just as we naturally agree with the Ten Commandments–lying, envy, theft, murder etc. is wrong–because they’re written on our hearts, so this grandiose concept of saving the world is etched on our hearts, placed there by the Creator of the world.
Even the whole good guy versus bad guy thing. We can’t wait to see the bad guy go down and rejoice with the victory of the hero because this is indeed what will happen at the end of God’s story: Jesus leads an army and with the mere breath of His mouth destroys Satan.
If we’re just the product of evolution–animals that can somehow think, judge, have opinions, and feel love and compassion toward others–why do we care if the good guy or bad guy wins? Who cares if the immoral one wins, survival of the fittest right? If he has the power to destroy all weaker animals (humans) under him, why would we get angry? He is just the ultimate display of a completely evolved animal, getting rid of the weaker links and conquering territory.
But we do care. We do want Darth Vadar [Star Wars], Bain [The Dark Knight Rises] and Red Skull [Captain America] to go down. And this is because we are truly made in the image of a Good and Just God who sent a Hero to save the world and makes sure this Good Guy and everyone who’s with Him wins in the end.

About BetterThanPrinceCharming

Ever since Kindergarten I've dated. From Bobby Well onward, I had over four dozen boyfriends. Fifth grade was my high year: sixteen sweethearts. I went through a few boys every year after that during middle school, and high school was where my dry season hit. Between freshman and senior year I had a consumation of nine boyfriends. I was on a hunt. I'd seen every Disney princess movie, and I was bound and determined to find my prince. Prince Charming wasn't in a far away land, he was in Miami, and I wasn't going to stop until I found him. So I thought. Villains are usually the one's who get in the way of your pursuit for happiness, not Heros, right? Well, in my case, it was both. View all posts by BetterThanPrinceCharming
