Romans 6:20-23

New Living Translation (NLT)

20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the obligation to do right. 21 And what was the result? You are now ashamed of the things you used to do, things that end in eternal doom. 22 But now you are free from the power of sin and have become slaves of God. Now you do those things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.

This verse is incredible as it explains to us our only two options in this life; we are either slaves to sin—the nasty stuff we do habitually—or slaves to God!  Here’s another way to look at it.   All of us make choices, daily which affect our lives.  These choices take place in our thought life, in our minds.  We think on something and then act on it.

HOT DOG!  You see, I just inserted a thought in your mind, as you read this and you reacted to it.  What about the billboards we see, the movie poster we look at, for us guys, how about the Victoria Secret magazine which shows up in the mailbox, do we open it up and engage or do we chuck it?  For you ladies, what do you do when someone starts gossiping?  I think we get the point.  All of this enters through our senses which we can call gates.  Most of our information comes through the eye gate, what we see.  Coupled with that is the ear gate, what we hear.

Peggy and I recently went to see Thor, and we walked out about half way through.  Why?  Because it was openly demonic in nature and we decided we didn’t need to put this garbage into our minds through the eye and ear gate.  In other words our choice closed any more information coming from the movie.  We then sat in the car and prayed against what we had seen and also asked for forgiveness for going in the first place.

The bottom line is this, we can either choose to keep engaging in sin, as our old self continues to rise up and clamor for attention, or we can choose to be holy.  When I say holy, I’m not talking about being sin-less, because I don’t’ believe this will happen on this side of eternity, and as John puts it 1 John 1: 8 – If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.  However, we can choose actions and thoughts which will keep us a way from the sin which so easily ensnare us!

This is something we have to practice and as time goes on in our Christian walk, if we are diligent, we no longer fall for the same old lies the Fallen One throws at us.  We choose to live righteously.  We take every thought captive!

    In Luke 21 verses 34 through 36 the Lord is recorded as saying, “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place and to stand before the Son of Man.” ESV

    Key points:

    1. The word translated “dissipation” (surfeiting in the KJV) is listed as #2897 in Strong’s. It is literally a “headache” normally associated with excess of drinking but is referenced to #720 which means to disavow or deny. So we see that this word has to do with a state of mind that includes disavowal and denial.

    2. The word translated drunkenness is actually “intoxication” and not necessarily from alcohol but a state of intoxication.

    3. The “cares of this world” is an obvious reference to preoccupation.

    4. The comment, “for it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the earth” is either a statement of the obvious that the “day” will come upon all on the earth who are on the earth on that day or it is a reference to the state of mind Jesus is describing with these three descriptors (denial, intoxication, preoccupation).

    5. The last point is His admonition to stay awake and pray that we will have the strength to avoid this pitfall. Curiously, the KJV translated this “that you may be found worthy.” I am not a Greek scholar but I am a linguist (Russian, Arabic, Spanish) and can tell you that when you find such radically different translations you are, more than likely, dealing with an idiomatic expression that is only loosely comprehended by the translators. However, it is clear that He is describing the need for grace to escape this state of mind that will allow “that day” to come upon us by stealth.

      It is very difficult not to present yourself as an instrument to sin if you are believing a lie. Jesus actually addressed the problems of normalcy bias, disavowal and denial so prevalent in our society today two thousand years ago.

      These mindsets keep people from seeing the truth, and that keeps them from confronting lies and seeing that they may be on the wrong side!

    Amen, Brother. We can go through our Christian lives thinking “this is just harmless fun” or “God understands” while opening ourselves up to the subtle plan of the evil one to not only destroy our relationship with God, but to destroy our Christian testimony. Or we can choose to live a Holy life glorifying God in all we do and say. I’ve lived on both sides of the fence, and I can tell you, there is NOTHING, no movie, no carnal pleasure to compare with living in the Holy Presence of the Lord. Oh, and if you haven’t heard, THE LORD JESUS IS ABOUT TO MAKE HIS 2ND APPEARANCE ON EARTH! Isn’t this the time to start living a holy life before the God of all creation? Bless His name forever!

    • LookingUp said

      Amen, Denise. We need more discernment about offending the Holy Spirit. After all, He does go with us everywhere.
      Maranatha!

    Awesome Word today.

    I admit to being a fan of the Marvel movies for what they are as entertainment although certainly the messages and themes couldn’t be more obvious.

    I remember having some moments during the first Thor movie where I thought “Wow, this really is Nephilim stuff out in the open” and some of it was pretty dark despite the PG or PG13 rating. The PG13 rating has always been a complete joke but I digress.

    Overall, I was able to watch that movie and “enjoy the entertainment” as it were despite admittedly being unsettled by some of what was going on in there.

    Part 2 must really be over the top on all of that if it mandated a walk out by you and the Mrs. I can’t say that surprises me. All of this stuff is just getting so blatant and out in the open now.

    Personally that level of open and aggressive push of certain concepts and themes suggests one thing to me: Home run stretch. Not much time left.

    • Home run stretch. Brilliant description Eric. Couldn’t agree more as the blatantly aggressive nature of the fallen ones ‘propaganda’ is now not even remotely subtle. It certainly is feeling like their final surge for the finish line…

      “Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them.” Ephesians 5:11.

      “I will walk within my house in the integrity of my heart. I will set no worthless thing before my eyes.” Psalm 101:2-3,

      Should we really think it’s no big deal to participate in things of the darkness for entertainment?

  5. Rose from Kentucky said

    A snippet of conversation between Alex Constantine and John B. Wells on Coast last night:

    Alex: There are people out there who’d like to believe I’m a conspiracy theorist. I research fascism, and fascism is inherently conspiratorial and there’s no way out of that.
    The Nazis were involved in conspiracies:
    Krystallnacht was a conspiracy,
    John: the Reichstag was a conspiracy,
    Alex: the Holocaust was a conspiracy. Forty percent of what the Nazis did was propaganda.
    John: They were good at it.
    Alex: The United States is even better at it. We’ve killed more people. In the Vietnam war alone 28,000,000 people died. Right?
    And nobody can even tell you what the Vietnam War was about.

    Rose – How many people have died in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and now Syria? Can anyone explain how these deaths have anything to do with what happened on 9/11?

    And yet, most churches are flag-waving, military-supporting, war-mongoring state worshippers. This is idolatry, and Christian people just don’t see it, because they love the lie.

    • James said

      I love marvel entertainment too. It should not be for children though, just for adults who are spiritually mature enough to process it all.

    • G-Force said

      Rose, I am so right there with you!! Our country has been an unapologetic killing machine for decades and so few flag-wavers can see it. I understand “love of country,” but we can’t turn a blind eye to our abhorrent history and current blood-letting overseas. Where is our outrage??? And as for “loving the lie…?” Many are not willing to look at truth because it would mean that EVERYTHING they’ve held dear is a lie…perhaps even some of the tenets of their faith??!! We need to pray for our military men/women, families, and ask God, in His mercy, to wake them up to His plan of salvation and the truths of His Word….to replace the lies of wicked men/women in positions of governmental power and an apostate church – lies that have cost them so much!!

    • LookingUp said

      God says there’s a time for war, and a time for peace. If it hadn’t been for our military, we would all be speaking German today – or Russian. I am not condoning everything this country does or has done in the past, but for all the things we have done wrong – and I agree, there are plenty – we have still done many things right. People come here for freedom, for safety, to get away from persecution, enslavement, starvation. This country has offered that to hundreds of thousands of people throughout our history, and it still offers that to us. Maybe not for much longer, but we need to thank God for letting us live here. Bangladesh may not have a military complex, but I am grateful that God did not ordain the boundaries of habitation there.

    So we’ve “solved the Iranian nuclear crisis” now according to Obummer and our so called leaders as of last night. :roll:

    1 Thess 5:3.

    Our so called leaders couldn’t be more arrogant and delusional. Khameni himself came out earlier last week and dished out the same old ugly hard truth and our stupid leaders still did this thing.

    O and his crew are even going around saying they’ve “solved the Iranian nuclear crisis.”

    “http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/11/24/us-iran-nuclear-talks-money-idUSBRE9AN01I20131124″

    Loosen the sanctions and do what we do best: Arm Israel’s enemies.

    Fools!

    Make no mistake: We have “officially” thrown Israel under the bus. There will be consequences. Lord have mercy. This may be a winter we’ll all never forget.

    • Eric W. said

      A little recent flashback:

      ” Netanyahu repeated a reference to his own red line by stating, “Israel will not allow Iran to develop a military nuclear capability.” ”

      ^^ Unlike our leaders this is someone that means what they say. Keep that in mind.

    • Benjamin Netanyahu re-inforcing his stance for Israel’s defense that he made at the UN a few weeks back.
      I think we are definitely right on the cusp of seeing the next prophetic jigsaw piece fall into place…

    • When I listened to PM Netanyahu’s remarks, I could not help thinking of an instance in Esther’s life when Mordecai’s question to his niece was, “…who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

      Benjamin is a true hero who loves his country and the people as was his older brother Jonathan (Entebbe – see link to a great documentary of his life/death below).

    I agree with the assessment on Thor….I saw the first one and after that had no desire to see the 2nd one. It’s amazing on how popular the film is, everyone that sees it loves it….i wish more people would walk out of a movie when offended ,I do it all the time and the theater never hesitates to give me passes for another movie for another date.

  8. Elaine said

    I have found myself seeing evil in the oddest places when I try to relax and have some “entertainment”…….whaddya do? Even the Bible miniseries had some twisted stuff that had me give up on it with the first episode. Then watching the “kid” movie, “Madagascar” that should have been just fun had to throw a viagra commercial in during prime time…..I think I even said out loud, “Dear God, my grand children could be watching this!”
    And last night I watched “Up” on the brink of tears because I knew there were probably subliminals that ruined what seemed to be just sweet and fun and I did not want to see them.
    sigh

    • LookingUp said

      Satan’s not called “the god of this world” for nothing. That becomes more evident every day. How can the Kingdom Now/Dominion people actually believe the world is getting better?

  9. We overcome the world, the flesh, and the devil — through Jesus Christ.
    (cp. good for food, pleasing to the eyes, able to make one wise, Genesis 3)

    – The Cross … Jesus Christ (*) as Son of God is our Savior — is truly God and eternal life (1st John 5)
    – The Holy Ghost … walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5, Romans 8)
    – The Armor of God … stand against the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6, James 4)

    (* – Yeshua Messiah)

    I love being rescued in the instant from sin. It’s like being swept away out of the jaws of death. And so simple, in the fullness of the certainty of forgiveness, just turn away — reach out to Abba (Father God) — and let go. The snare is immediately broken.

    That’s not to say I always turn away quickly (cp. “repent”). Which then becomes more of a struggle… but for most things it’s just that easy, and a very wonderful reassurance to know He’s spiritually that close. When I recognize I’m doing something wrong, I just give it to Him, inwardly. Such as wanting to rail against the authorities.

    There’s a difference between ranting and railing, sounding off vs. angry complaining. See the events of the Exodus for examples of murmuring and complaining.

    Yet, LA’s point is that it’s not just us. There’s a constant barrage of programming and distraction. His example was to turn away, submit to God (pray), and resist the devil.

    This week there are major temptations: stuffing ourselves, marathon videos, and black friday shopping. It’s clearly best to avoid those deep fried, bar-b-cued, wine injected turduckens, with stuffed jalapeno stuffed stuffing … and especially at multiple events (work, school, home, church, etc.). Remember the Exodus, manna and quails, (Exodus 16 & Numbers 11)

    And as for those times we won’t let go of sin … it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. Tribulation works patience. Those who really love their children discipline them. (also see the Exodus, or The captivity in Babylon, or the Diaspora, or The Parable of the Prodigal, or the book of Hebrews, or the Letters to the Churches in the Revelation)

    Could it be that the Almighty gives the worldly exactly what they want: satan as their absent ruler cast down to earth but locked up… like superheroes would in the movies …so they can do their own thing along with the rest of the rebel angels… as a race of demon charged and rebel angel empowered transhuman gods… all in competition like in football or massive computer games.

    What is sin?

    Most Christians do not realize what sin is.

    1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the LAW (the commandments/Torah) : for sin is the transgression of the LAW (the commandments/Torah).
    1Jn 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our SINS (breaking of the law); and in him is no sin.
    1Jn 3:6 Whosoever abideth in him SINNETH (break the law/commandments) not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
    1Jn 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: HE THAT DOETH RIGHTEOUSNESS (keep the commandments) is righteous, even as he is righteous.
    1Jn 3:8 He that committeth SIN (break the commandments) is of the devil; for the devil SINNETH (break the commandments) from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of Elohim was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
    1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of Elohim doth not commit SIN (break the commandments); for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of Elohim

    We are told over and over all throughout the bible not to sin (break the commandments), but to repent (turn form sin by keeping the commandments) and believe.

    Mar 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of Elohim is at hand: REPENT YE (turn form sin by keeping the commandments), AND BELIEVE the good news.

    Psa 119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O LET ME NOT WANDER FROM THY COMMANDMENTS.
    Psa 119:11 Thy word (Torah) have I hid in mine heart, that I might not SIN against thee.
    Psa 119:12 Blessed art thou, O Yahweh: TEACH ME THY STATUTES.

    Grace is not a license to sin or continue to break Torah.

    Rom 6:1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin (break torah, disobey), that grace may abound?
    Rom 6:2 May that never be so How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?

    Do not deliberately continue in sin

    Heb 10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth (law, commandments), there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
    Heb 10:27But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

    Angels sinned

    2Pe 2:4 For if Elohim spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to the lower regions, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

    The AC is the man of sin (breaks/twists the commandments)

    2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first (apostasia, the defection from the truth), and that MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, THE SON OF PERDITION;

    What did Yahshua say to the women caught in adultery?

    Women you can never loose your salvation. Now go..

    Joh 8:11 She said, No man, Master. And Yahshua said unto her, Neither do I condemn (cut off, destroy) thee: go, and sin no more.

    Yahshua said do not break the law anymore.

    Here is another example
    Joh 5:14 Afterward Yahshua findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole (revived, preserved): SIN (break the commandments) NO MORE, LEST A WORSE THING COME UNTO THEE.

    • LookingUp said

      Sin is anything that falls short of the glory of God and runs much deeper than letters on a page. Jesus said He came to fulfill the law, every jot and tittle. Grace deals with not only the letter of the law, but the spirit of the law. Much more demanding. It took the blood of Christ to achieve that level of atonement and forgiveness.

      “You foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of ]the Law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?” Galatians 3:1-3

  14. Dave Powers said

    I don’t like the Bible you used here because in Christ we are no longer slaves but servants and friends of God. A slave or the unsaved only know Jesus as Master but people who have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior of their heart and life know Jesus as Lord, Savior and friend.

    • LookingUp said

      The Greek is the Greek. The point is, we are all slaves/servants to someone. We either serve the Lord, or we serve Satan. There is no middle god. When we accept Christ as our Savior, we go from being subjected to the rule of Satan whom we were following to being subject to the rule of God. It is not “slave” in the sense of not having a choice. And that’s Paul’s other point. We always have a choice to sin or not. This passage is encouraging us to be aware of Whom we now serve and to act accordingly.

    We do have to live diligently. I am trying to get back on wordpress more and post more blogs. My Elohim YHWH has given me a wonderful little ministry. No where near as big as this one which is fine. I have so many blogs to work on this week it is not funny. Although I was blessed to get a short blog up right quick today about a story you are unlikely to hear in a church. It is about Moses and comes from Numbers 12. I think it is my shortest blog ever. Here is the link if you are interested.

    “http://montanatruthseekers.wordpress.com/2013/11/24/heres-a-story-youre-unlikely-to-hear-in-a-church/”

    • @ J. re: ” Here’s a bible story you unlikely to hear in church or at sunday school. Numbers 12 tells the story of when Moses’ wife Miriam was upset with Moses for taking a second wife from the land of Cush.”

      Of course, you meant “Moses’ sister Miriam” or else the point would be about incest vice race or plural marriage.

      Or succession…

      As for complications with masonry, polygamy, race, and spying on your political rivals…
      (definitely see America Declassified episode 3, with a piece re: NSA’s Cloud outside Salt Lake City)
      … I’ve run into quite a few mormons in the back channels of the sigint business

    • James said

      Thank you for sharing. I did mean sister not wife. Thank you for catching that. I also did not mean to put that video about Queen Ester. I meant to put a video about the song of Moses. I went back and edited that. Thank you so much for pointing out those mistakes. Polygamy is a very touchy subject.

      No where in the bible is polygamy forbidden. It is regulated just like slavery is regulated but not forbidden. I did get that post fixed. I was in a rush to post because I had company supposed to show up at 1 and then they called and told us it would be closer to 2:30. So I am about to log back out.

      My personal feelings about polygamy is that in some cases it should be allowed and in some cases it should not be allowed. It is a touchy subject although it is beyond a shadow of a doubt that these cult groups like the mormons who embrace polygamy have certainly abused it and was not in scriptural polygamy. Thanks for pointing out those mistakes. They were honest mistakes.

    • James said

      I do disagree with the article from bible fellowship union. There is not a lot of evidence to back up there claims. It sounds like they are just trying to wiggle around the topic and down play the issue. Logging out now will talk with you all later

    • Holy moly, I don’t want to get into a debate about how many wives we can pack into our bed. I would only raise the point that the OT laws were nailed to the Cross. Jesus comes for one bride, not many.

    • James said

      The OT laws was never done away with. The OT laws define what sin is, if the definition of sin was done away with then there is no need of a messiah or salvation. It is a common misperception that comes from the lies of the Roman Catholic Church. One of the reason most people fail to understand scripture is because they have no clue what modern or ancient hebrew culture is like.

      I am not debating should polygamy be an everyday occurrence. I just think some people need to lighten up about the issue. It was polygamy that caused people to take the mormons out and slaughter them, giving that warped belief system an appearance of credibility. The story goes on and on. Waco was another slaughter that probably would never have happened if polygamy was not involved. Polygamy is far more taboo than homosexuality and swingers in christian and secular culture.

  18. The eye and ears being the gates into our hearts is definitively true. Everything we see and hear, taste and smell, feel and touch — our senses, brings us into an awareness of what’s around us and we make the decision on what we “drink in” and live by.

    I saw the Thor movie trailer and I can see, drama, adventure, excitement, good vs evil–that’s what life is all about. The suspense is in the battle (great cinematography). Even the film’s title refers to the “dark world.”

    Thor: The Dark World Official Trailer #2 (2013) – Chris Hemsworth

    I do notice however, that as I delve in deeper into the Lord, I cannot stand the evil that I am surrounded by, the lies that try to permeate.

    I saw Thor hit the giant Nephilim, with his hammer and thrust it into pieces and quickly I was reminded of the scriptures:

    *The Lord is righteous; He has cut in pieces the cords of the wicked (Psalm 129:4)

    *‘I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron. (Isaiah 45:2)

    *“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord, “And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces? (Jeremiah 23:29)

    *For behold, the Lord gives a command: He will break the great house into bits, And the little house into pieces (Amos 6:11)

    *Who can stand before His indignation?
    And who can endure the fierceness of His anger?
    His fury is poured out like fire,
    And the rocks are thrown down by Him. (Nahunm 1:6

    *‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’— as I also have received from My Father; (Rev 2:27)

    Thor is trying to be God and he ain’t!

    Sometimes it’s hard to overcome. I try to watch what I think is a simple program. Simplicity went out the door sometime ago because so many programs are based on over exposing the evil. (These are not Highway to Heaven films.) I’m seeing a huge audience thirsting for the supernatural and many times, they are satisfied by what is being supplied to them like trying to make the vampires appear to be the good guy. Deception at its best!

    However, I have asked the Lord God why we don’t see more Christian based movies that show just as much drama (if not more), excitement, suspense, great cinematography, including the fierce battle scenes (let’s face it–we face battles daily), but with His Word overcoming the battles of life with victory. We need it, we want it. We need to “see” His Word in action (at least I think so).

    Anyway, great bun today!

    Blessings,

    Though I still wonder why jewels in New Jerusalem?

    Rev. 21:10-11
    And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain,
    and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
    Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious,
    even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal…

    Great stuff . . Really relevant for me at the moment . I have been struggling with stuff like this and realising that I have to start making choices about what I look at and listen to . .god gives us the freedom to choose and expects us to choose the right stuff but as ever and scarily let’s us choose

  22. Speaking of irony… considering Canada’s open access to Cuba

    Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird says Canadian government is ‘deeply skeptical’ of Iran nuclear deal;
    says Canadian sanctions against Iran to stay in place – @CBCAlerts (5 hours)

    While… US still embargoes it’s own citizens regarding Cuba (50+ years)

    LA, I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to read and witness a Christian out there that lives and listens to the Holy Spirit. I am SO amazed by how many aren’t aware of the importance of guarding our hearts and minds from the wickedness out there. Recently I was impressed to put my armor on day & night, especially at night and then to declare it. I put on my helmet of Salvation and Jesus I declare you are my Salvation! The supernatural is very crafty and sneaky and we need to be aware and diligent and on our toes regarding his plans. My heart soared in thanksgiving to God to read how you took a stand and left the theatre and repented. Thank you, thank you, thank you! What you did means more than you will maybe ever know and is a testimony in such a HUGE way! God Bless You in all you do and stand for! There are SO many people that call themselves Christians that think this is all innocent. Just as a physical house has openings for evil to enter, so our bodies, a house, does too. I wish I could give your wife and you a big hug! I just can’t thank you enough. Blessings!

  24. foxnews pastor conveniently disregards Christ’s instruction re: woman taken in adultery, to “Go and sin no more.”

    There is no same sex “marriage” that can include God in Holy Matrimony.
    There is no same sex marriage that is a Holy Covenant before Almighty God.

    And for the record for today’s topic — concerning any sin — Christ says, “Go and sin no more.”

    John 8
    7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

    If you are Christian and excuse sin — you need this warning…

    Hebrews 10
    26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

    Regarding Thor (both I and II), in the first film, they had Thor declare that in his world, science and magic are one and the same.

    And in the second film, Odin says that they are not gods or immortals – they are born, they grow old, and they die, just like humans (to which Loki retorts, “give or take 5000 years”). Odin also says that all the nine realms will eventually come to an end.

    I guess what I’m getting at is that these films don’t claim that Thor and his other worldly-bunch are gods. It seems more like they are advanced aliens. With that in mind, I did not find it difficult to enjoy both films, especially the scenes with Loki, which I thought was excellently portrayed by Hiddleston.

    Is it a question of my lack of spiritual discernment that I did not find anything so disturbing as to cause me to walk out the movie halfway, as LA did? What did I miss?

    • Sam,

      Your explanation of thor / marvel dove-tails right in. It’s the programming and spin.

      Same old con as with satan from the beginning. “You shall be as gods.

      Same old lie with the mormons who believe in evolution to god-hood.

      Same old scheme with the transhumans who push technically engineereed god-hood.

      … new agers … ascending to god-hood / oneness with the universe.

      … ancient aliens … seeded and nurtured into god-hood. (cp. alien gospel of free energry, immortality, etc.)

      … urantians … with cosmic bureaucrats uplifting others to become gods by “thought adjustment”

      … occultists … controlling demonic forces to become as powerful as gods

      … 666 … taking the mark to filter access to resources to all but the privileged including access to their god.

      cp. the tropes of tv, computer games, movies, fantasy, fiction re: superheros, super-creatures, paranormal, magic, cult, mystery religion, x-men, etc.

      note:
      “asguard” even sounds like “as god”

      Genesis 3
      1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. 4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. 6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. 7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.

    • … also “academic god-hood” reserved for the select becoming Rhodes Scholars (Bill Clinton) and Harvard Professors (Barak Obama)
      … as part of the American Dream or Camelot like with JFK
      … note Ivy League, etc.
