Sorry but it's not going to happen. When the reviews of Superman Returns came in, there were some who made the declaration that the gospel could be found in the movie. There are references in the movie to 'A Savior', as well as a comparison between Superman and his father compared to Jesus and his father. But yet, the Superman that we witnessed was flawed with a weakness, 'kryptonite' of course. This kryptonite is a substance that is able to wipe Superman out when he is exposed to it.
Now I know that some of our writers and speakers mean well, and I also will rejoice at another venue where the gospel is being preached. But in this particular instance, it will be a false gospel. My Jesus is not flawed. My Jesus does not get wiped out at the presence of kryptonite or sin for that matter. My Jesus has not dealt in fornication, which apparently Superman did with Lois Lane which produced a son.
With all due respect to our fellow writers and speakers, what movie will be next that the gospel appears to be relayed, the remake of 'The Blob'.
If people are finding a form of Christ through this movie, is there no wonder that the churches are plagued with legions of dead christians.
