Quotes from the upcoming Superman Returns movie.
Jor-El to Kal-El (Superman’s father to his son):
“Even though you’ve been raised as a human being you’re not one of them. They can be a great people, Kal-El. They wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. For this reason above all – their capacity for good – I have sent them you… my only son.”
Superman to Lois Lane:
“You wrote that the world doesn’t need a savior… but every day I hear people crying for one”
Many articles and articles have already been written about the comparisons of Christ with Superman, but what about the followers of Christ and Superman?
In the Scriptures they mistook John the Baptist for Christ, anyone ever mistaken you for Superman?
What would it look like if followers of Christ, though different from those around them, were the leading examples of what it meant to be fully human? to be the very best of humanity?
How might we impact and influence others if we saw the greatness, and the beauty, the hope, and the good within them?
Where would you be today if you were living as a person sent to bring light into the darkest crevices of humanity?
What would happen if you heard the inaudible cries for a savior from the people around you?
When people saw the extraordinary life John the baptist was living and calling others to, he was able to point them to One even greater than himself.
What would happen if we became heroes in our towns and cities, and before people began calling us super men and women, we could point them towards the greatest Hero to ever walk the earth?
