It's creepy and boring and I'm not sure if it's an appropriate Christian show.
---Angel11 on 2/7/10

Read the book, "Philosophy and Star Wars." It is very imformative and even has a chapter on how Christianity parallels with the Star Wars saga.
---Lewis on 2/3/10

Watch it carefully, and you can find that Lucas uses Jesus as the archetype for Luke.
---JoelV. on 12/26/09 many, people are intrigured w/ the supernatural and the spirit realm...and since not too many churches go into that they turn elsewhere...and when the source is not God they do bad things
---mark_B. on 6/4/07

Come on! The Star Wars saga--as well as Harry Potter--are ENTERTAINMENT, and no more. If you don't want to watch it, then don't!

I liked the Christian symbolism in Matrix 1, but the others were just too strange. If you like I'll expound upon it. (BTW--how many people do you personally know who have turned to Wicca or something similar as a result of the HP books? JKR herself does not.)

Mark I asked one of my coworkers that very question as we replaced Floresent light bulb the other day. how did they do it.
---Jared on 12/13/06

Jesus always used the worlds Methods to direct attention to himself. He used the Law and the abuse of the law to teach. he used taxation to teach he used the farming practices of the day to teach.
---Jared on 12/13/06

if christ came today he would probably use similar aspects of the world to help explain the Kingdom in a better way. That is what all pastors do, it is what all evanglists do. if they don't then most people would never understand them. But yes all of the illistrations must be directed to the Cross. otherwise it would be without power, whichis why Starwars isn't gospel and just a sign to help direct our attention elswhere.
---Jared on 12/13/06

Jared - God never has and never will use this world's methods to draw people to Himself. God draws people to His Son by His Holy Spirit through the finished work of Christ on the cross.
---Helen_5378 on 12/13/06

How do they get the light to stop at a certain distance on their light sabers???
Thats always confused me...
---mark on 12/12/06

You do realize that Star Wars was and is used greatly in Christ's ministry. I'd venture to say that much of the Church growth in the 1980's resulted somewhat from Star Wars why because it started people thinking about Good and Evil and what side they were on. Is that wrong? I think God will use whatever it takes to direct people to his grace which is found in the Life, death and ressurection of Jesus Christ.
---Jared on 12/12/06

I agree with Daniel. There is too much magic, sorcery,and the like in movies. It's gotten way beyond fairy tales I grew up with. I wish so much children had exciting but more Christlike stories in movies.
---Virginia on 12/11/06

All I ever hear about is Star Wars! It's everywhere! I do have good news. I have it on good authority, that a script on Dante Alegheri's The Divine Comedy is in the works. For those who do not know the Comedy, it is about a man who is guided through Hell to Heaven litterally, it is a very spiritual epic poem. The Inferno, the first book, discribes the nine circles of Hell, it makes Hell a very real place to one who is reading it. Maybe Mel will direct it.
---Tiffany on 6/14/05

Not really, there is a time for everything. Things come and go and soon Star Wars will go away along with everything else in the world, "eventually".(Matthew 24:35) Remember when it was all about Rocky, jaws, elmstreet, jason, lord of the Rings ?...where all that go ? what's important is that, the lord God was, is, and will forever be, this we shouldn't get tired from.
---vilma_vivi on 6/13/05

I once preached the gospel out of the Lion King and was amazed at how that affected those who heard. You will find what you are looking for. If you are looking for the devil under every rock and around every corner, you will find him there. If you are looking for Jesus, He is faithful to reveal Himself.
---Linda_Smith on 6/3/05

On light/dark in SW: These are not speaking of the conflicts between God/angels and satan/demons. It comes from eastern mysticism (read Ying/Yang) and Persian religions of darkness and light; as equal in strength! Instead of there being God the Creator, there's ONLY a "force" used for 'good' or 'evil' and it's up to you to decide which; no ultimate judge to whom you owe worship and praise for saving you from your sin.

Some star wars stuff I like and some of it I don't like. Nothing like neutrality.
---barbara67 on 5/29/05

Marla, wow what a very cool analogy. I would never have looked at it that way.
---bethie on 5/29/05

I agree with you Jack! I just wish we could convince Mel Gibson to extend his "Passion" to making the "rest of the story". The reality is that the media IS important because of it's massive influence. We need to be aware so Christians can respond in an intelligently informed way to support that which is acceptable and hopefully influence Hollywood to consider a better direction.
---Elsie on 5/29/05

Calm down Daniel, my error. I was thinking of the Chronicals of Narnia, Lewis popped in my head instead of Tolkien. Both loved writing fantasy, were good friends I have read.

Please get it right! C.S. Lewis did *not* have anything to do with "Lord of the Rings," that was written by J.R.R. Tolkien; although Lewis and Tolkien were both in the Inklings (a sort of literature club) at Magdalen College while professors. Tolkien didn't like Lewis' first Narnia book, but not sure why... maybe because it was so forthright about Christinaity (though certainly not as direct as Bunyan's _Pilgrim's Progress_ is)?
---Daniel on 5/28/05

My son is sw fan. Other day he comes to me and says, "In sw there is a light and dark side, just like with Jesus and satan" He continues to say that,"we need to fight for the light side and our light saver is our bible."
---Marla on 5/28/05

THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST is exactly that: the Passion story, just like the Passion Oratorios of J. S. Bach. It is a traditional Western art/dramatic form.

Think of it as an extended dramatized Good Friday sermon.

Frankly, I believe this movie is the best of the genre, and Mel Gibson was inspired when he produced it.
---Jack on 5/28/05

"Jack, (Heavy James Earl Jones breath) I am your 2nd cousin, twice removed!" "Can you loan me $100 bucks?"
I skipped HP, but liked the fantasy in C.S Lewis' work, "Lord of the Rings."

With a particular movie I won't see, No, but with all those in Hollyweird who promote the idea of Nature and magic over the Creator, for sure, YES! The "force" of SW-series is defintiely *not* the Holy Spirit! And they certainly do affect some of our children into thinking differently about God and creation. It's the whole Eastern Mysticism, witchcraft, respect for 'tribal religions,' "ANYTHING but the Bible" attitude pushed by the media, that we really need to be 'fed up' with!
---Daniel on 5/28/05

Too true! And one thing to keep in mind is that there are more Gospel parllels in the original Trilogy than in the most recent AND could be used to explain the Gospel message and tell them about the "true force" the Great, Mighty and Terrible God as described in Pslams.
---grega3363 on 5/28/05

I'm not a fan of Star Wars. The previews for Attack of the Clones showes a creature that looks like satan. I'd rather not fill my head with those images.
---wandamae on 5/28/05

I must wonder why does anyone expend enough attention or emotions to get fed up with any make believe form of entertainment, I assume you are speaking of the movies,etc..There are so many really important issues which affect humanankind,including saving lost souls,which warrants a focus more than the mundane make believe world of Star Wars.If movies aren't what you mean,please clarify your subject.Focus on Jesus,then it won't bother you.He is our peace.

What is a Star Wars blog.
---Jonah on 5/28/05

I know I am tired of the Star Wars craze...even Christians are getting into it...gee...just think what the world would be like if everyone was as enthusiastic about sharing the Gospel as they are about this Star Wars craze! Something to think about and pray for I would say! But don't forget that we can share the fact that we know something even better than Star Wars and that it is absolutely out of this world!

Yep, it appears that it has became another cultic religion.
---Elder on 5/28/05

Nope, because I ignore it.
---Rosa on 5/28/05

YES and AMEN, Tiffany! Too bad Mel Gibson (director of "Passion of the Christ") has not produced the WHOLE story about the Jesus whom we love!
