Getting to know God together.
Mr Lucas was asked,
“ You said you put the Force into Star Wars because you wanted us to think on these things....the notion of the Force [is] particularly Buddhist...a vast reservoir of energy. Was this conscious?” [Did you do this on purpose?]
Mr. Lucas said yes.
He has put these imaginations in his films because
that is what he believes.
Buddhists have a religion which does not believe in God.
They just believe in energies in nature.
Mr Lucas was asked, “Is one religion as good as another?”
He answered, “I would say so....”
Mr Lucas shows that he does not know Jesus Christ as
He does not know that the true God of this world and the universe says,
There was a question put to Mr Lucas
that is a bit hard to help you understand.
It was about “trusting your inner
In the Star Wars Luke Skywalker is urged by Ben Kenobi to “trust your inner voice.”
Or “trust your feelings.”
Is this a good way to act in life? No, not at all.
That makes out that you yourself are a “god.”
That in you yourself are the answers to life.
If you had the answers inside yourself, you would be God.
But the Bible tells us that our Father God is the one we must trust and obey.
And His commands and wonderful answers to life’s problems are found in the Bible.
Mr Lucas said this
“...the Force is the larger mystery of the universe.
And to trust your feelings is your way into that.”
Is the Force the larger mystery of the universe?
Of course it isn’t!
The “larger mystery” of the universe is not even a mystery to Christian believers!
For we know Him. He is our loving Father God,
who has revealed to us His mysteries in His wonderful Word.
Your feelings are a way into nothing, that is silly.
Jesus Christ is the One Way into the glory which is our relationship with God,
the Heavenly Father.
“Jesus said...I am the way,
and the life no man [boy or girl] cometh to the Father but by me.” ( John 146).
EXTRAS FOR TEENS AND BETWEENS
Is Star Wars a deliberate attempt to give millions of young people a New Age religious view? Yes, it is. Lucas says, “I put the Force into the movies in order to try to awaken a certain kind of spirituality in young people...” He says, “I am hoping that a 12-year old boy of girl will enjoy it.” He says, “I try to make it believable in its own fantastic way.”
But Star Wars is not real, it is an imaginary world that tells spiritual lies about reality! What is the Force really? I am sure it is Satan himself who is tricking millions into a counterfeit faith he has invented, to keep them from the true God. George Lucas says, “all religions are true.” If that was so then tribes that worship the sun, moon and stars as “gods” would be right, and that is not true. Be on your guard, read God’s Word and keep in His Truth, for there are many roads to error in our world. The Bible warns us about the “God of forces” in Daniel 11:38 in the King James Version.
“And that from a child thou
hast known the holy Scriptures
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” II Timothy 3:15.
