Sunday June 3 – Christian Questions Radio discusses the Avengers Movie – Real Super Heroes Will Save the World Soon?!

The Avengers Movie may turn out to be the biggest blockbuster sensation in the history of movies, after just raking in over 1 billion worldwide after its second weekend in the U.S. 

This is a fictional movie about Marvel Super Heroes created by the famous Stan Lee with the aid of other creative talents.  Samuel Jackson plays the character Colonel Nick Fury, the head of S.H.I.E.L.D., who gathers together earths greatest super heroes to save the world from the ominous threat of the Evil Loki, of Asgard, brother of Thor, who has amassed an alien army from a distant part of the universe to conquer earth.  Audiences worldwide have cheered for the Avengers  –  an exciting team of super heroes put together to save us all and prevent earth’s destruction.  But alas, they are only pretend heroes, they are not for real.

Some of the greatest names of world history include Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander the Great,  Atilla the Hun, Napoleon, etc.  Sadly, these great men, though considered as heroes by many in their day, were usually egotistical and ruthless monarchs with little compassion people.

Where have all our American heroes gone?  Throughout American History, we have had many heroes like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone,, Lewis and Clark, Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, the Great Generals of WW2,  Martin Luther King Jr., etc.  But in recent decades people have either forgotten about these old heroes or have found reasons to criticize them.    People are not only losing faith in their personal heroes, but also in our American institutions — in Government, Religion and Business. 

America was very patriotic up to World War II.  Comic book super heroes were depicted as supporting the patriotic fervor of World War 2, with superman, Captain America and other heroes.   Many of these fictional heroes were depicted as battling Hitler and the Nazis.

The decline in patriotism is reflected in recent Hollywood movies.  SUPERMAN’S motto, “Truth, justice and the American way,” was rewritten in the 2006 “Superman Returns” movie to “Truth, justice and . . . all that stuff.”

At one point in the 2012 Avengers movie, Captain America is shown his upgraded uniform and is a little surprised to see the Stars and Stripes still adorning the costume.  Turning to Nick Fury, he says almost sadly, “Aren’t the Stars and Stripes a little old fashioned?”  Fury replies, “A little old fashion might be just what we need.”

The only real and solid faith we can enjoy is in the ultimate hero, God Himself.  Psa 28:7 (NASV) says, “The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.

With no new real American heroes to place our hope in, people continue to enjoy the pretend heroes of the movies.  But is the idea of super heroes really just pretend?  Well not really.  The Bible is full of super heroes.  Samson had the strength to lift the city gates off of its hinges and to push down the supporting pillars of a great temple.   Moses brought horrible plagues on the Egyptians and parted the Red Sea for the Hebrews.  Elijah called down fire from heaven to destroy his enemies.  Of course none of these Bible characters had their own powers, except as God provided it on their behalf and for His people.

Are the days of these Bible super heroes gone forever?  Or will real super heroes rise up and save us someday soon?  Absolutely yes! 

During the Gospel Age, since Pentecost, God has been pulling together a team of super heroes.  He has been helping them to develop super spiritual powers, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  These super spiritual powers are called the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22, 23 “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.”  The training and development of the Christlike characters of these New Creatures is nearly complete.  They have been hand picked and prepared since Pentecost to be Christ’s body members, and under His command to be earth’s future judges, priests and kings.

These heroes will be soon led by their leader, Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, to save mankind.  All mankind has been waiting for them since the fall of Adam.   

Romans 8 (NASV) “19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God21 the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God”

    I think you are totally off track on the symbolism. Lee was not referencing the decline in patriotism, it was about being aware of the cabal and who actually runs this country as well as the world. It is not really fiction, it is allegorical. There are many references of archetypes waking up and becoming aware of what is really going on. S.H.I.E.L.D. turning on the puppet masters, free-energy references. The hard part is not interpreting the movie but whether Lee is telling the truth or it a distraction. Traditionally, magic wands were made with the wood of the holly tree…Peace :)

    well now super heros ? hmmm how many of you think of yourselves as heros ? me Ive allways looked really boreing and unimpresive! but christian men and women have a great honor ! for they are jehovah gods super heros of today clothed in suits and ties sometimes at others wearing work cloths christians go about doing a service far more valuble than rescueing people from impending acidents ! instead they take on a far more sinister foe than the movie villans. they wage a war with real demons and the devil,a far more fearsome villan ! this villan goes about not simply to harm people or acheive rulership of the world, he is after your eternal life and its destruction !this is were christians become the real superheros ! they bring the rescue of jesus christ to people who would other wise suffer a slow meaningless spiral of sins on earth down into a destruction of all rememberance with jehovah ! yes christians are earths real heros ! we cant outrun a bullet or stop a speeding train with our hands ! but we can in the name of jesus christ bring the gift of life that does not end to anyone in need… think about that next time you watch superman, because none of those deads they perform for people are of any lasting benefeit ! but christians be glad you are the real champions of the world !

  • Dupin

    Yes, Jeff.

    it will eventually happen. For finality it will happen at the end of the millennial kingdom.

  • Sharon

    Jesus Christ, Superstar and the one and only Avenger!!! Hallelujah!!! Praise GOD!!!!

  • Ken

    Is Jesus going to use the ‘Avengers’?

    • Jacqueline

      Ken as a witness we lost our sense of humor and touch with the real world. Jehovah definitely has to have a sense of humor if he made platypus. And have you seen some of the newly discovered fish? He probably said to Jesus “wait until our kids see this” LOL. I know he knew we would wonder about the Monkeys and apes that are similar to us in many ways. So it is no wonder man realizes the world needs help, because we were invaded once by angels and God stepped in. Take Care Ken

      I think the Hulk could come in handy to help smash the enemies attacking Israel’s during Armageddon.

      • Jacqueline

        Br. Peter, you just don’t know how rewarding it is for Ken, Sharon and me to be able to joke and express ourselves. David Lawrence on one of the JW facebook groups cracked a joke and it was just freeing. It means we have our voice and are smiling and are on our way to complete recovery. We have our father anf Jesus to give this praise and credit, but we also have the Bible Students to thank.
        You dear brothers (and I am a BS too, tee-hee) just kept right on moving like the tortoise and the hare, not imagining that the Lord Jesus had such an enormous work for you to do in this the end of the gospel age. He kept you hidden in Plain Site! It was just not the time for the BS to be known by JW. Now we can say we are with the BS and there does not seem to be any resistants at all. Even my relatives say now, yes I know who the BS are. So thanks for the article and GOD BLESS to all. See everyone at the Chicago Convention Memorial Day weekend.

        So would “Yoda Hulk!”

        Oh I wish I could link that one for you to see here.

    • Jeff

      Ken, Are you arond? I havne’t seen you post in a bit.

      Will we see you this weekend in Chicago?

      • Ken

        Hello Jeff, I’m still around. I won’t be able to go to the Chicago convention though. What’s new?

        • Ken

          Too bad…we were hoping to see you.

          If you want some literature, let Tom know and he can bring it for you. He’ll be speaking at the convention as well (a last minute addition).

          • Ken

            Cool! Which literature will be there? I have a few in mind I would like to have.

            • Peter K. (admin)

              Ken – There is a good size room filled with books, videos and other material. Most of what is listed in the CBS bookstore, plus more.

              • Ken

                Ken,

                Send me your number again (zionsherald@aol.com) and I’ll call you from the convention to tell you what they have and can have it shipped back with Tom….or…. I can come up and visit with you one of the next two or three weekends.

                :-)

    I went to see it this weekend and my perspective went to Jesus. We discussed how many will be surprised at Jesus takeover and will fight. But now I have hope for all the people that are not in the way of the carnage. I have been taught that Jesus would come and kill little children and others that have no true knowledge of what is going on. Now I know armageddon is not judgement day for the world, Millenium is. Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is a just Ruler he will save the day. Thanks for this article.

  • Jeff

    So…evil WILl be ‘smashed’ in the future!

    Amen.
