haha today you all get a double dose of the daily challenge because I didn’t post yesterday.
If the picture hasn’t given it away already, or if you just aren’t a fan of comic book super heros, my favorite fictional character was Robin.
The reason I use past tense is because I have given up all interest in secular entertainment. I’ll explain, but first…
Why robin ?
I have three biological brothers, but the only brother like figure in my life is my cousin James. He was a huge influence in my life. He would always remind me to be myself and to be comfortable in my own skin. This was repeated by him quite often because I had always tried to imitate all of the things he would do. I would copy the way he would walk, talk and dress, the music he would listen to, the games he would play and everything else because to me he was the epitome of what a cool guy was.
James’ favorite super hero has always been Batman so in my mind James was Batman, and because I was always following behind him I thought of myself as robin.
Over the years I studied the character and began to relate to the character in some aspects, but eventually I gave up following mainstream media altogether to focus purely on God.
I realized that movies, TV shows, comic books and other forms of secular entertainment are all either a waste of time and distraction, or a form of indoctrination. A lot of todays media is used to prime us, desensitize us, and influence us to accept the evil future events that are set to unfold that the bible prophesied about without any moral dilemma.
1 Peter 5:8 says, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
A Lion is known to be a fierce predator, and though it is not the biggest or fastest animal there is, it is known to be the king of the jungle. It is a perfect mix of power, stealth, speed, and wit. So when we read this verse we have to understand why Satin is compared to a Lion. Satin obviously can not physically harm us so why compare him to such a dangerous animal? How does Satin “devour” his prey? Satin uses the same skill he used to convince a third of the angels to rebel with him against God, the same skill that he used to cause the fall of man in the garden of Eden and the same skill he implemented while attempting to cause Jesus to sin.
All along Satin has been using the same method to cause chaos in peoples lives and in the world. We all know what it is and yet can not see it in our everyday lives. Satin is a master manipulator, he twists the truth and presents half truths to get you to believe in a complete lie. Satin is like a lion in the spiritual realm: He has a powerful tongue capable of fooling the wisest of the wise, he is quick witted and his intelligence is unmatched by any human being, because he has been around since the very first man, his stealth is possibly the most dangerous of his attributes. Think about it, how can you defend yourself against something if you don’t even know you are being attacked. Satin nowadays hides behind the media and public figures, His work appears innocent and will give you the “well what harm could it be” type of feel and if you aren’t paying attention he will snatch you up into a whirlwind of oblivious sin.
Never listen to anyone when they say ignorance is bliss! That is a lie invented by satin himself and is a direct contradiction to the word of God.
Don’t allow books (other than the bible), politics, commercials, movies, cartoons, tv shows, or in my case super heros, warp or shape your perspective on anything. When you do you are letting the devil himself tell you what to think.
With that being said, I decided to create a comic book/ Novel of my own. It will be about a boy who’s eyes are opened to what happens in the spiritual realm and the power of prayer. I could always use some help with ideas so if you have any feel free to help me out and leave a comment below 🙂
Just trying to get some wholesome Christian based entertainment out there hahaha
