This is the last part in our Hulk Smash series, unless I think of another topic. 😉 I hope that you’ve enjoyed this!
So many times in movies, books, and real life, actions are fueled by revenge. Not necessarily with the Hulk, but… well, I thought it needed to be in here. The Bible talks a lot about revenge, and what it says isn’t good.
Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say,
“I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.
This verse even quotes another verse that talks about revenge. The message is clear. Never take revenge. Let the Lord AVENGE you. 🙂
I’ve never been good at spotting possible spoilers, so if you haven’t watched The Avengers, I would suggest that you don’t watch the video. Just to be on the safe side. 😉
When Dr. Banner (The Hulk) says that they’re a time bomb, it’s kind of like partnerships between believers and unbelievers. Everything may be fine, but, at some point, there’s going to be a clash. Or a KABOOM. One of those two. Either you’re going to be forced to sacrifice your beliefs and convictions, or your partnership is going to be ruined because of a disagreement about faith. Or both.
The partnership above doesn’t just refer to marriage or dating. Friendships, work relationships, and almost any other partnership with unbelievers also count. I’m not saying you should lock yourself in a room with Christians. Nope. You still need to reach out and love unbelievers. We need to show God’s love to them, just like Paul says in 2 Corinthians 6:14-18:
Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God said:
“I will live in them and walk among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore, come out from among unbelievers, and separate yourselves from them, says the Lord. Don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you. And I will be your Father, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Hi, guys! Please let me know if you liked this very first Superhero Sunday post! And, as a small disclaimer, I’ve only watched The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger, so I’m relatively new to the superhero world. I’ll mostly be using things from those two movies (or others if I watch them :D).
