This week marked the release of the new Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens”, to much fanfare and hoopla. Neighbours of ours purchased tickets in advance and drove the sixty miles to Toronto to see it on opening night.
No doubt this franchise has gathered millions of fans since the first movie was released in 1977. I was one of the early fans, being taken to see the movie by my father. My dad was a Baptist, and I wonder, in hindsight, if he ever realized what he had awakened in me?
You see the worldview promoted by Star Wars, from the very first movie, is a neo-pagan anti-Christian worldview.
Packaged in a slick and engaging story line, most viewers don’t realize that they are being manipulated into a pagan worldview, as I was.
You see, while being billed as a story about a fight between good and evil, Star Wars does not have any objective way of defining good and evil. In fact the god of Star Wars is merely a force which can be used for either good or evil. In other words the god of Star Wars can be good or evil, thus good or evil is merely one side of god or the other.
So, if God is both good and evil then He would have no reason to create Hell, and no reason to judge anyone for being evil. This is wishful thinking of course, but it is part of the philosophy that underlies paganism. Both sides of this New Age God are Satan, in fact!
The other part of paganism which naturally follows is the idea that God IS all things, or that God is IN all things. This is known as pantheism, or panentheism. Thus the idea that “all is One”, or that “humanity collectively is God”. It also follows that animals, and rocks, are just as much a part of God as is man. These are doctrines taught as a part of witchcraft!
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: Deuteronomy 18:10
This is the worldview that Lucas, Disney, and Star Wars is teaching in every frame of these movies!
The bible, however, teaches a different view of God. The God of the bible is the Creator of everything, He holds everything together, and He is everywhere at once, but He is not a part of His creation.
This is the primary meaning of the word “holy”; separate. God is separate from His creation. And, though he took on a body and lived among us, and though He died for our sins, He was not affected by sin. The Son of God is as Holy as His Father.
This world is about God the Son, but the Star Wars movies are about you, and how you can manipulate your way around the world using supernatural forces, which is the very definition of witchcraft.
We are in the last days of this age, and the prophet Daniel actually spoke about this “God of forces” in a passage about the Antichrist;
“But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.” Daniel 11:38
Here the Antichrist honours the God of Star Wars. So don’t think the Star Wars series is a harmless story of good versus evil. It is actually a pagan story designed to deceive the world, and it is working wonderfully!
As I was researching this article I came across several reviews of Star Wars that claim that there are Christian themes in this movie! This is incorrect. What makes the bible a Christian book? It is the presence of Jesus Christ! Jesus is in the bible from Genesis 1 to Revelation 22. It is all about Him.
If you have an ostensibly moral story, however, which ignores the author of morality, it is not Christian in the least! So, please don’t tell me that Star Wars has Christian themes, it has nothing of the sort!
The Star Wars series may be a triumph of story telling, and artistic excellence, and since Satan, and Disney, have put a lot of resources into it, why wouldn’t it be? Many people who think they are Christians will go to this film, thinking that it is just harmless entertainment! Nevertheless, you should know that as you watch this movie you are being indoctrinated into a neo-pagan, Antichrist worldview.
I really don’t recommend that anyone goes to see this movie, unless you are watching it with a view to exposing its paganism and spiritual errors. Even then, don’t do that unless you are thoroughly familiar with the bible, and are willing to put the bible’s teachings above the teachings of man. Whatever you do, don’t take children to see this film!
Because this movie is subtle it is very dangerous. I am convinced that God has chosen aliens and UFOs as one facet of the End Times delusion. As such Star Wars is a tool of God’s judgment!
I also will choose their delusions, and will bring their fears upon them; because when I called, none did answer; when I spake, they did not hear: but they did evil before mine eyes, and chose that in which I delighted not. Isaiah 66:4
