Star Wars and Christianity

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

    Greetings Dan,
    I remember as a young unbeliever how slickly seductive the first one was…it overwhelmed my senses. I appreciate your thoughts and couldn’t agree more, now is the time for mature Christians to warn against the twisted anti-Christ spirit of magic this franchise promotes. Disney himself, and many of Disney’s numerous movies and programs have been exposed as bad or worse…certainly an unwise pagan ideology for our young to consume. “May the Force Be With You” isn’t harmless fun…it acknowledges the aforementioned god of Dan.11:38.
    Their,” God of All Things” deceives and destroys the “goats” Christ warned about. May God be with you… by the Holy Spirit.

    Brent.

      Thanks Brent,

      Disney was a high level Freemason, wasn’t he? It shows in his work, and in his legacy.

      In spite of that company’s reputation for being “squeaky clean” they always portray men of God as being either evil or weak.

      If we believe that our money actually belongs to God then why would we purchase something that will richen those who hate God?

      On the other hand, if you watch it, and write an article exposing the theological and/or logical errors, send me a copy and I’ll post it here. As far as I can see that would be the only legitimate reason to see it.

      Thanks again,

      Dan

    I like star wars. I have known the LORD JESUS CHRIST for many years. HE and our HEAVENLY FATHER, have been much better to me than I to THEM. I think if given the chance we should explain our view this is just fun fantasy and the only “force” is the one and only one GOD ALMIGHTY, THE GREAT I AM. the CREATOR and SUSTAINER. use star wars to testify. not attack. I am not saying we should not warn of dangers but I think most people reading these posts should be well aware of satan’s subtilties. certainly not a non believer or unsaved or even a babe in CHRIST. this is not a condemnation rather just a comment. I am not saying I know the best way to handle these things. only GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT can give us the correct words. it is difficult. we are not to be part of this world, or love it, and yet if we do not experience life, how can we learn or teach? welcome any and all constructive comments as I will admit I am not too bright.

    Hi Jim,

    As the Ligonier article says; use it for a ministry opportunity. I agree, but I don’t think that means “don’t attack it”.

    I stand by my statements; I don’t think there is anything redeeming in Star Wars. I think the god of Star Wars is exactly the god of the Antichrist!

    I was really into Star Wars as a teen, and also into Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and other SciFi movies, TV programs and books. I was wrong and I want to warn others. The time is short and these things really are designed to deceive people.

    Ephesians 5:11
    And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

    The word “reprove” means to “expose”.

    Here’s another thought; Do you remember how Ronald Reagan said that if the earth was attacked by aliens that we would set aside our differences to combat our common enemy? What do you think will happen when the sign of the Son of Man appears in the heavens? I think the unbelievers of the earth will unite to combat Jesus Christ! This will happen during Armageddon, I am convinced!

    13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. 15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. Revelation 16:13-15

    John saw these spirits looking like frogs; I submit to you that John saw what we would call “little green men”, but he was not familiar with 20th and 21st century popular culture. These evil spirits will be visible and they will lead the armies of the earth against the Return of the Rabbi!

    If we love our families, friends and acquaintances we need to warn them now, before it is too late!

    I am not saying that this show will not be a work of art; no doubt it will be, but that should be the least of our concerns. Souls are at stake.

    Thanks for writing,

    Dan

    Hi Dan,
    Have been super busy…moving etc, but haven’t forgotten your generous offer to take a shot to decode this movie.
    Fortunately I came across a real beauty by the Vigilant Christian tonight… great insight for those who haven’t seen it.
    Check out vigilantchristian.org/starwars.html
    Some sober insight and warning for those on the true path.
    Regards,
    Brent.

    Hi Dan,
    To follow up The Vigilant Christian’s post you linked for us, I would add that on Youtube “Enterthe5t4rz”, Enter the STAR WARS Decoded” has some insight to the deceptive teaching of Star Wars.
    Brent.
