Making a god mortal: Hercules and Jesus

In this reblogged article one can see how easy it is man get carried away by philosophical thought and fairytales.

Lots of people have been caught in the tragic twisted thought of the main churches where Jesus is made into not only a god (what Jesus might be) but worse, into God, Who according to the Scriptures is an Eternal Omniscient Omnipotent Invisible Spirit Being, whilst Jesus is a man of flesh, blood and bones who was seen by many and never claimed godship, but who made it clear he was the way to God, Who is greater than him and without Him he could do nothing, and we too would be nothing.

The writer also says:

any god threatened with the loss of divinity isn’t a god

but forget there are many gods mentioned in the Bible who had no divinity and others who were divine but not the Almighty God.

The writer also mentions that

Hercules isn’t one worthy of worship because he’s so much like us that, in the end, he isn’t a god at all. Perhaps he’s seen as someone “god-like” because he sacrifices himself for love, because he shows the strength of his heart and not the strength of his arm (physical might). But in the end, being godlike isn’t the same as being God.

With that expression he hits the nail on the dot and should see that his godlike figure Jesus is not at all the Only One True God Who is One.

Hercules is an excellent Disney movie for those who have never seen it. You should watch it with your children, too, or nieces/nephews and grandchildren. It’s an excellent look at bravery and courage and what defines greatness.

But bravery, courage, and greatness within Hercules have a specific context: that is, it surrounds Hercules, the main character of the movie. Hercules is a god in heaven with his mother and father, who are god (Zeus) and goddess (Hera). Well, he is kidnapped out of his crib one night and taken to earth, where Hades (an evil god) plots to make him human. The purpose of removing Hercules’s divinity is to kill him because, if he fights against Hades, Hades won’t be able to take over the world.

So early on in the movie, Hades asks Panic and Pain, his two minions…

The rock on which we stand

People should feel grateful that their Divine Creator always has looked at mankind and even in spite of the two millennia of human failing which have characterised the church, still God continues to faithfully fulfil His promise, calling people to Himself from every nation, tribe and tongue, and patiently waiting until His Word shall be preached all over the world and until all His own are gathered in before He winds up time and ushers in the glory of our then not ending life anymore, being able to enter the small gate of His Kingdom where there shall be no pain or agony, having all suffering being ended and the world full of joy and peace.

To remember

  • path of the righteous = level
  • God establishes peace for us (Isa 26.3-4,7-9, 12&15)
  • by gospel of Christ you are saved > Christ died for our sins + was buried + was raised on the third day => have hope in Christ
  • stand firm + let nothing move you
  • Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord <= labour in the Lord is not in vain. (1Cor 15.1-5,19-20,52&54,58)
  • good news of our salvation = always true!  >‘rock’ or foundation =  basis of our lives >  freedom + strength + joy
  • God demonstrated His divine commitment to fulfilling promise – in spite of the faithlessness of His chosen people, their idolatry + abandonment of His truth
  • gospel has not lost its power to transform <= God not been diminished in any way by the increasing sophistication of our world + not weakened because certain leading thinkers + social influencers dismiss the idea of faith

The only flaw in the text underneath may be the confusing saying “divinity of Christ” because by such saying different denominations mean something totally different from it. In case the writer would mean that Jesus is God, we naturally could not agree with that. Always remember that Jesus is the son of God and the one who put his own will aside to do the will of God, giving his life for the sins of mankind.

People have to stand firm, not going by all the human traditions and by the many false teachings or human doctrines, but should be keeping to the Biblical doctrines and keep away of any false worship or pagan rites.

The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth. Yes, Lord, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you…

Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us..You have enlarged the nation, O Lord; you have enlarged the nation. You have gained glory for yourself; you have extended all the borders of the land.
