Movies, like most; I love watching them I really do. Something I have noticed over the years of watching movies is that; the writer creates this story where a single person can be super human and save humanity all by himself. There is just him/her and the regular people left, any that don’t stand for what the hero does has a real problem because no one can match him/her. Fiction that is what movies are made of.
There are actual people that reach a few of their goals and even amass large amounts of wealth. There are however no superhumans among us. The only perfect person that I have ever heard of is Christ. Yet in his story he took beating after beating for us. He saved the day by dying. Fiction is feel good to our our mortal minds and bodies. Fiction allows us to dream of and imagine. Some who believe the movies may have thoughts of if only I can inject myself with something that can give me superhuman strength(drugs), if only I could fly from the top of this building(suicide), if I can beat anyone at anything in competition(pride). We can’t be the same type of hero we see in the movies. That is fiction, we can be a strong light to other men that may have doubts. To give an uplifting word to a father that may be struggling or down at the moment or even reach back and help if we can.
My thoughts haven’t ever been on anything mind altering; I did have a lot of pride in sport or in developing in the computer world though, in conquering anyone who challenged me on the court or marveling at the creations I am able to make. I thought it was me that had this special ability to play at a higher level than most. Make these grand sites and networks and databases. It wasn’t it is God inside me that allowed me those abilities. I have started my walk with Christ and even though it is not ever easy it is worth it to me. I can’t believe in those movies anymore as I did when I was kid. I am now a man that has his own children and family to guide and protect. I have to believe in the one I know can help me. A super hero can’t save me but God can.
We don’t have anything to lose when we turn ourselves over to Christ and everything to gain. You can still be the same person, a better person because instead of tearing down your wife you now build her up. You help her instead of allowing her to do everything for you and your children. Instead of screaming at your son you speak to him. Instead of drinking a fifth of alcohol or an entire six-pack of beer you maybe have a drink or two a week. It can all happen for you, it really can. I don’t have the answers you need I only started to walk with him myself. Together though we can get the answers we all are seeking and help as many people as we can before its our time.
