I love super-heroes, science-fiction, artificial-intelligence, teleportation, faster than light transportation, magic, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and scientific theories of parallel dimensions, aliens, time-travel and future worlds. I think most people have imagined sometime in their life that they have been gifted with an incredible and exceptional special power or ability and what they could achieve with it. This desire seems to be ingrained in us at an early age where we promptly lose it and then “grow up”. I have never grown up. I love too the supernatural.
I think scientists have never really grown up and they are blessed with an above average level of desire for special capabilities and it really surprises me that they are so locked into such a materialistic mindset that they cannot accept the supernatural. They are the ultimate doubting Thomas (who must have been the atheist of the Disciples.)
Jesus is my superhero because I believe he really exists, and he is the fulfillment or embodiment of all the superhero abilities I listed above. He controls time, space and energy better than any Superman and he has a spiritual component that is lacking in all the DC Comics characters – love.
Scientists are searchers because they can’t stand to let a good mystery go unprobed. But because the atheistic ones cannot accept a supernatural explanation for unexplained phenomenon, they miss out on the truly supreme experience – the one that Jesus promised each person who believes in Him – that we will be just like Jesus at the Resurrection – superheros. (Philippians 3:21)
