Star Wars: Does It Contain Non

Star Wars: Does It Contain Non-Christian Beliefs?

Many people believe that STAR WARS is THE GREATEST FILM FRANCHISE IN HISTORY (or at least in the top 5 in terms of pop culture). But from a CHRISTIAN STANDPOINT, what are the PROBLEMS WITH STAR WARS with respect to the philosophical and/or RELIGIOUS THEMES that abound in Star Wars? Is Star Wars just harmless sci-fi fantasy, or does it promote a DANGEROUS WORLDVIEW fraught with PERNICIOUS ELEMENTS that people should be made AWARE OF? The link below answers these questions in an exhaustive, well-researched manner.

Is this another "The Jedi were really the bad guys" thing?

The jedi were against doing drugs and banging chicks. Also they were against galactic domination.

Total buzzkills.

Negative. It’s a serious, thought-provoking question.

True. Kinda strange that the Jedi didn’t believe in procreation, seeing that the force was inheritable. But, are the underlying philosophies propagated by Star Wars non-Christian?

Most of that bs didn't get started until the EU and the Prequels started. That is what turned the jedi in to pricks.

They do not need to believe in procreation, they just scoop up little kids and take them away from their parents for the rest of their lives to raise them in some temple that totally isn't a cult. That's not dark at all.

As for being non-christian, I dunno...they do have the whole virgin birth and messiah thing going on. Granted...this space Jesus turns out to be not exactly the peaceful type. But hey his heart was in the right place, he was in love with Natalie Portman's vagina.

The Jedi are just a combination of samurai(s)/Tibetan monks—in space. Their religion is the force, which Qui-Gon Jinn kept describing in "The Phantom Menace" as having a will. How can an IMPERSONAL force have a will?

Exactly. George Lucas incorporated that blasphemous "There was no father" for Anakin element into Star Wars, ever so subtly. Yep, that's who Anakin is patterned after, albeit blasphemously, the TRUE SAVIOR: the Lord Jesus Christ.

STRONGGGGG with discernment (to see what is REALLY going on), you are Surturrr--with regard to these blasphemous elements in Star Wars.

It's a fictional religion. Some similarities were always going to be evident. I just don't see WHY that's important.

And none of this mattered until Canon started getting wrote by people that used to do FanFiction that wound up being the EU.

So yes. BLAME THE FANS FOR THIS CRAP!

No, actually ALL of those non-Christian elements were PUT IN THERE by George Lucas himself. First, (or originally), in Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Then George wanted to complete the saga, and went backwards with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, and Revenge of the Sith prequels.

Also, the whole, "Only a Sith deals in ABSOLUTES" is a knock against Christians, insinuating that we are evil for believing the Bible and the gospel of the Lord Jesus (which is REPLETE with ABSOLUTE TRUTH).

It's NOT a fictional religion. Lucas DELIBERATELY based the force on EASTERN MYSTICISM. Indians from India call it prana. The Japanese refer to it as ki. The Chinese describe it as ch'i. Star Wars is fraught with Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and Taoism (among other things). George Lucas studied these spiritual, religious, philosophical concepts and PURPOSELY incorporated them into Star Wars.

This is important because THOUSANDS of unsuspecting people are adherents of Jediism, and/or the Jedi Order. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jediism

The one TRUE GOD has been replaced by the force.

There is a Jedi Church. https://www.jedichurch.org/

These deceived people have even had their religion officially recorded on a census.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jedi_census_phenomenon


MANY people (especially young people) might start dabbling unwittingly (or unknowingly) in the occult, and become SORCERERS like David Blaine, Criss Angel, and Dynamo (who masquerade under the GUISE of being just mere magicians when they are REAL-LIFE WARLOCKS) if they are not taught the subtle, underlying philosophies, and religious/spiritual aspects of Star Wars. All such people are BOUND FOR THE LAKE OF FIRE WHEN THEY DIE. What Penn and Teller and other REAL sorcerers do is NOT simple sleight of hand. They are harnessing REAL demonic/satanic power. These men (and some women) have SOLD THEIR SOULS TO satan in exchange for supernatural power.

I just want to put the TRUTH about Star Wars out there so that unsuspecting fans don't become ENSNARED BY THE DEVIL. You see, dabbling in the occult (Tarot cards, palm reading, Ouija Boards, seances, witchcraft, sorcery, consulting psychics, talking to demons through mediums, interacting with spirit guides, spiritism, satanism, Wicca etc.) GIVES THE DEVIL PLACE (i.e. legal right to enter a person's life and bring all kinds of demonic oppression, possible POSSESSION, and worse, DEATH). The devil may not take a person's life immediately, but he can ANY TIME he wants to once a person crosses over into his territory.

Now, I don't know that JUST WATCHING Star Wars will give the devil place into someone's life. But dabbling in the occult FOR SURE WILL subject someone to HELLFIRE FOREVER. I advise people NOT to try to obtain supernatural power in an attempt to imitate the force, or adopt the eastern mysticism prevalent in Star Wars.

I would say it can be cut evenly between the Fans and George. That being that George is now a very old and VERY RICH (even before selling out to the Mouse) and when he made the Preqs He slipped into that old Confused Granpa Mode and wondered what the kids are into and saw all this PC SJW Emo Crap and went with that and now toes to that line.

SO I DO BLAME BOTH
