Thoughts I pondered this morning… that I hope others find a blessing. Whether it is Star Wars and the force, or Harry Potter with some ‘magic,’ Hollywood is a hopelessly dark and lost place to find real power and truth to live by. Please consider this and what our kids and you are ingesting daily from them! – John
If the force depends on everything living where do you go when you die?
If the force is so powerful why can I find no real hope believing in it?
If the force is in and flows through everything why do I not see it or feel it?
If the force around you depends on life for energy then it is dying too.
There is no hope with the force, and if you had the power it is most often shown as a tool to manipulate people for some supposed greater good. In their words, it depends on your perspective of what is right or wrong.
The force also depends on some so-called mitochondrial things in our blood that can be measured so is that really a force or a manifestation of something foreign inside of you?
There is so much wrong with “the force” would you really want it with you for all the grief it causes the good side or dark side? The stories told by Lucas in Star Wars are dark and murderous!
In reality the force is more comparable to witchcraft, and innumerable myths then anything of truth. The force and everything like it, is really a farce to delude the feeble minds of men, women and children away from the real power of truth!
We’d rather digest some relativistic postmodern nonsense and think wow wouldn’t it be cool if I could have power to do that – imagine what I could do! And down the rabbit hole you go! All meaningless fantasies but if they are your truth, you are lost… seriously you are REALLY lost!
In this crazy world we live so many seek to escape from reality, whether it is with drugs or the ways Hollywood tells you to think. Movies, TV shows, and music are “the force” that claim to be there to just entertain, often they will include a grain of truth to draw you in, and your simple mind is twisted. The music leads our youth like a bunch of rats following a pied piper, copying their way of singing, speaking, dressing, and fads with hair, piercing and tattoos. They march their merry way into the darkness!
The force is another philosophy/religion and part of the string of lies coming out of Hollywood. They offer us no hope for what awaits us when we die except their meaningless thoughts woven into a variety of fantasies.
The force isn’t real and it has no power for you or for me. – That isn’t my opinion it is reality!
You won’t see or feel the force flowing through everything and it is a blind fool that follows it with blind faith – it is utterly dark and hopeless.
With all of its science fiction, Hollywood’s force is just more dead teaching the dead, more death in a dying world in a great and seemingly infinite universe that is in a state of decay. No wonder they promote zombies, vampires, and more!
While society is being entertained by Hollywood, we are being slowly drained of common sense then drawn into their vain ideas and philosophies. Vanity upon more vanity, ever wonder why some of those big names commit suicide!? Because there is no hope without truth!
But you may argue, I am a good person and am drawn to the good and light side of the force, yet I am telling you, you are blind to its vanity and you are without real hope – if that is your faith, it is a dead faith and you are another foolish victim of the Hollywood’s lies!
In this crazy world would you rather believe a lie or learn about the truth?
Would you be so bold to NOT be the individual that the world is telling you to be!? Would you dare to learn what is true? Would you dare to follow where only one man who has ever lived as true has gone?
The Force is no force at all, it has no wisdom or knowledge and those saying it say it is just some power within… it is really no power at all (whether it is Star Wars, Harry Potter, and etc.) It is not hope, it is not true faith and its concept of love is perverse lacking the ability to save a single soul!
The Force is altogether darkness there is no good side/dark side or white magic/black magic – and promotes the worst sort of lie painting it’s heroes as some sort of saints! While it may seem an attractive idea, it leads only to darkness and death. Besides all of that when you step back from it all you discover how very sad, depressing and gut ‘wrenchingly’ DARK the force or MAGIC is!
So, ask yourself, wouldn’t truth (no matter how hard to believe) be better than the force!?
Bible verses coming to mind and when searched:
1 Timothy 4:1 “Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”
1 Corinthians 10:20-21 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
John 3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
John 12:35 Then Jesus said unto them, Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while ye have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not whither he goeth.
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
