Is Avatar A Demonic Movie

God tells us not to defile ourselves. A friend of mine went to see Avatar, that movie with the blue people flying around looking like demons....anyway, did she defile herself? or do you think seeing this movie was okay?

Athiest, it is inherited from the time each one is born. And even when a murderer kills he knows it is wrong to kill, yet he still does it. And no matter how you are brought up, been kinder then others, a person still sins. Sure, many religions and people here do make your case because you can see the division it brings between one an another. And that is why I said your points are legit. Even when one is save his conduct is not always good. Christians should show more compassion but many show evil against another, which indicates to me that they could not possibly be saved at all. And since I cannot see a heart, I am not able to make that judgment. But Romans chapter 1,2 give a clear picture of who we are and what we already know by God.
---MarkV. on 3/28/10


This is what the Bible says about people who aren't following God. Romans 2:14 For the Gentiles,which have not the Law,do by nature the things contained in the Law,these,having not the Law,are a Law unto themselves. So you see people develop their moral and social standards by the teaching or training by parents and the Culture they belong to. Many times Christians will say goodness is not godliness,and this is true,however,this shows in God's eyes there are good people without being Christians or obeying God's Word. That doesn't mean they will go to Heaven though,only that there is other reasons for a person to have high moral and social standards.
---Darlene_1 on 3/28/10


MarkV,

"The light of what is right and what is wrong" is in most people. I think it is an inherited trait that most people have if they grow up in a nurturing and supportive environment.

"Thought experiments" involving moral predicaments are answered similarly by people of different religions, cultures, and national histories. Criminal types with sociopathic or psychopathic tendancies and behaviors are found to have incomplete and/or brain wiring and structures, and/or unsupportive and violent growth environments.

I have found on these blogs, that 'god' and religion is often used only to reinforce and justify one's particular beliefs by creating an outside character responsible for right and wrong.
---atheist on 3/28/10


Avatar is a film the same as every other fictional film. People with wisdom can watch anything which does not have too big an impact on the mind and leave you with your Godly senses intact when your done!
---Carla on 3/27/10


Athiest, I believe the reasons you give about why you do not believe in God are very legit. That is what the Bible calls sin. Invey, power, pride and so on. You can see them very well because you discribe them very well. The reason you see them is because within you lies the light of what is right and what is wrong. And you would not know that, if it didn't come from God. Without His laws, it would not be wrong or right.
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the Truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them"
The reason you know those people are wrong is because God has shown it to you.
---MarkV. on 3/27/10




Trav,

I got it.

Anyone who doesn't agree with you view of the world, and 'god' agrees with that view, is wrong and is going to 'hell'.

The self-important natterings of a homophobic racist matter not.

Natter on, natter on...

The Supreme Court defined Obscenity as "Being Without Redeeming Social Value" and that can apply to a lot of things besides skin flicks.

And the new Health Care Bill meets that definition quite well.
---Friendly_Blogger on 3/26/10

What utter tripe..

First the supreme court defined obscenity as "utterly without redeeming social importance" (and this is only a partial definition) which changes the entire meaning of what you just said.

Secondly, while you certainly entitled to your opinion of the Health Care Bill, you are very wrong on that issue too.

What made me an atheist? I read...
---atheist on 3/26/10

Well your quite a minority. Every nation that ever existed had some kind of GOD. Most were/are still rocks, monkeys,snakes, spirits etc. Quite logically 1 can see they are false. Some men claimed to be GODs.... logically they all proved....less than gods. Except for one proven one. I'm a reader too. But, no author of thousands of books,can provide witnesses the Bible has. Not trying to sell you. You seemingly have made your bed...but, because you can't see,you think everyone else should join hands in your leap of finality in death. Which means you are afraid of GOD too. Company? You'll have some.
---Trav on 3/26/10


Atheist,I'm not afraid of people like that but I certainly dislike prejudice of any type. I also think using God as an excuse for war and thats all it does,is very wrong. I have a God of love and no matter who people are they need to love one another. People need to treat others with respect. Every person walks in the light,knowledge,they have,whether from seeing,reading,or living. Christians have to have absolute knowledge of right,wrong,and sin because we must avoid all the things contray to God's Word,the Bible. We learn about sin so we will be equiped to avoid it. We have to know right for Christians because we must do right to please God. Then Christians must know what is wrong for them to do so we won't do it.
---Darlene_1 on 3/26/10


Friendly?

Yes. If people can't afford health care they should get sick and die. Not having money for a doctor means that these people are without redeeming social value. If they can't figure out how to get enough money to stay alive, then logically they must be worthless and have no social or economic value.

Jesus Christ certainly would not have anything to d with them...

Right?
---atheist on 3/26/10




I would not say Avatar is demonic, I think the movie is stupid and a waste of good money to watch it.

It just has a lot of animation in it, so do South Park, Family Guy and the Simpsons and I don't enjoy them either.

The list goes on...

'atheist': Why are you avoiding my questions? What are you "afraid" of. I don't care what your psychologist invented, politically correct modern definitions of "homophobic" may be, the Greek meaning is clear - "afraid of the same." I'm sticking with "homodisgustic" since I'm not afraid of sexual deviants, but am highly offended by their personal sins. I don't like serial killers much either because of their lifestyle choices. I guess that makes me "androphonophobic".

Jerry,

The censored posts were copies of definitions for 'homophobia', which fit you and Trav. Fear is not necessarily part of the definition, but statements like, "Like Trav, I'm also not afraid of sexual perverts, so the term "homophobic" has no meaning for me. Too bad there's no word for "homo-disgust-ic"" are examples of the trait.
---atheist on 3/25/10


Atheist, I wonder if you've thought about the fact that being a Christian,believing in God,and his son Christ/Jesus doesn't hurt us. There are no punishments given to people who believe if we are wrong and you are right,but if we are right,and you are wrong the Bible says sinners,I'm using the Bible defination,someone who doesn't believe in God,will be punished by being thrown into Hell and then at the end of the world,by the Bible,Hell and Death along with Satan shall be thrown into a lake of fire,which is the second death Revelations 21:8. I didn't ask this because I don't like you to the contrary,you seem nice. Yes I think unbelievers can be nice people. Its just a thought I had because I see Christians/believers covered either way it is.

I'll ask again and we'll see if your reply goes through.

When and why did you become an atheist? How old were you? What were the circumstances?
---jerry6593 on 3/25/10


Still, though, it's a matter of personal judgment on these matters, and about knowing yourself well enough to know what things influence you negatively, and what things don't. No two people are alike - what causes one to stumble, may just cause another to roll their eyes or have no negative effect whatsoever.

I've personally seen Avatar, and I loved the movie. We don't know what demons look like, so we can't say what they do or don't look like. Just take it all at face value. The Navi were just another species on a different planet, not demons. I didn't care for some of the spiritual aspects of the movie, but they were just fiction - not real, just part of that particular story - and I approached them as such when watching the movie.

Alan : "Atheist, who regards himself as superior to those who are afflicted with religious belief?"

Excuse me. I have never proclaimed myself superior to anyone. I actually think that people who can take comfort in a 'god' of one sort or another and still accept the wonder of the universe, learn from the methods of science, reason rationally, and who do not denigrate others who believe in a 'god' different from their own, are quite lucky---and good at mental gymnastics to boot! But those people seem to be few and far between. Most here seem to find it necessary to close doors in their thinking and separate themselves from those with which they disagree, using 'god' as the wall.
---atheist on 3/23/10


Trav ... apologies for that second sentence about Caucasians. It was someone else who was also saying that Caucasians are Jews. So I got that completely wrong

SORRY!

Otherwise, that person was putting forward the same views about racial purity and separation that you are, and "To many that sounds like racism"

Itb is of course quite natural, in our human condition, to regard our own race as being in some way superior to others, and that I suppose could be regarded as racist.

But then, what term should we apply to Atheist, who regards himself as superior to those who are afflicted with religious belief? (or to some "Christians" here who have the same sense of superiority over others?)

Donna:

Even though God is referred to as male in the Bible, he also has some feminine characteristics.
Matthew 23:37:
"O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!"

Also, while the bible never says Jesus was ever married, what would have been the problem if he was? No scriptures say Messiah must be unmarried. But see the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, and Messiah will look upon his seed (Isaiah 53:10).

It is a long leap from "something is not true" to "even thinking it could be true is an abomination".

White people are not colorful.

A very white uncolorful man made this movie. How do you explain that weird interpretation--- "White people are horrible".

I try to keep up, but I didn't know that that was a movie genre! Did the movie fall on the fiction or non-fiction side of things?

Are you paranoid or is someone chasing you?

BTW, I didn't see AVATAR because according to all the reviews, despite the special effects, it was another "White people are horrible" movie.

Also, Jesus said it is NOT what goes into us that defiles us. That would include the ears and eyes.

Well said Mr Cluny.

It was pure fantasy. I did not see it because the reviews said the plot was very weak.

We have enough paranoid Christians already without saying that Sci-Fi is "satanic". What is next? Is Star-Trek "satanic"? You have to admit that it has had some interesting creatures too. There was the full length Star Trek movie where they went to the ends of the universe and found God beyond the great beyond. It did not bash Christianity in any way and might have even honored God.

I used to know some paranoid Christians who would utter "I rebuke you Satan!" if a cookie fell to the kitchen floor. They did not understand gravity was not "satanic" and were afraid of what was behind every tree!

I think that you summed it up well.

While I didn't like Avatar, I like the classic 1931 movie Frankenstein. Some people think that Frankenstein is Satanic. As was mentioned in another post, you can find some reason to make almost any movie look Satanic.

I laughed at your "baseball match having a Christian message" phrase. It appears that some folks are more concerned about those soaring, little white objects than they are about Christ. If we look at baseball that way, it is a Satanic game. Relax folks! Baseball is only a game for FUN.

I was once told that my computer is Satanic because of the Stonehenge screen saver that comes with Microsoft Windows XP. Oh, really?

I don't know the actual term for the moral/relgious code that Avatar puts forward. The blue people are the "good"

There are the factors of courage, standing up for what is right, generosity of heart, sacrifice for others, right actions win in the end. Quite moral in those respects.

Part of the "fact" of life on that planet is that all life is interconnected ... there seems to be an earth mother situation, which is not a Christian concept.

But it is after all just a fiction story, as unreal as Lord of the Rings, Narnia James Bond or 4 Weddings.

I don't feel defiled by seeing it. It's entertainmemt. Do we look for a religious/Christian message when we go to a Baseball match?

I think seeing it is okay, but I do notlike the implications that it makes: that 'mother earth' will protect the 'natives' from 'us' and things like that. It seems to be giving 'nature' the ability to be worshipped (not in so many words, but that was how I took it). Watch it, yes, but don't take the implications seriously

Avantar is just a movie,created fiction just like any Science Fiction,Fairy Tale,etc and if it doesn't name things which you know is connected to Witchcraft or the Occult then its no worse than the other fiction whether love stories,Westerns,or anything else thats made up. You don't know if the people in the movie look like demons or not unless you've seen demons for yourself,otherwise all you have is mans made up vesion of demons. A Christian knows what is not wordly and what is therefore if you think its wrong,it is for you. If people look to find evil they can find evil in anything which disagrees with their beliefs or understanding. Let everyone be settled in their own minds if it is right or wrong for them to see it.

I saw this movie and hated it. Most of the other people in the packed movie theatre thought that Avatar was the best movie that they had ever seen. What?

I believe that "liking" or "disliking" Avatar is a SPIRITUAL issue. Some teenagers of today seem to "like" anything that comes along. That is dangerous thinking, because Satan is out to devour people.

I thought that Avatar was a "New Age" fantasyland movie. I prayed that I would just "forget" whatever God didn't want me to remember. I don't remember anything about Avatar now. Hint. Hint.

If God didn't want me to remember anything, I must say that Avatar is bad, Bad, BAD. Defiling too.

Actually, the blue people are the 'goodies'

Was you friend pure to begin with. That is the first question you must ask. Perhaps she was already impure and unbeknownst to you regularly commits impure act.

The second question you need to ask is, "Am I nuts!?"
