The Gospel All Around Us Part 4–The Difference a True Messiah Makes

Posted: May 16, 2009 in Uncategorized

We will all look for a messiah.  It doesn’t matter if we ever step foot in a church or not.  We will define a heaven for ourselves (i.e., looking hot, being rich, creating a comfortable existence, etc.) and we will define a hell (i.e., being average looking, not affording new stuff all the time, a life in constant flux, etc.) and we will look for a savior to keep us out of our self-defined hell and carry us to our self-defined heaven.  It is simply a part of who we are.

If we find Jesus then we will find true heaven and all that flows from it including peace here and now but if we follow a false savior then we only find despair. If you have eyes to see then you will notice this all around you.

The number of films containing a messiah figure are countless.  My favorite is the Shawshank Redemption.
