So today I got into this interesting conversation with my dad and it got me to thinking about how Hollywood and the media in general glamorize demons. They make them seem like they aren’t so bad, that they are capable of doing good. Yes they were once good and holy beings but they fell, just as their leader did. They became corrupted. They are powerful but they will never use that power for good no matter how much people hope or think they do. They have fallen and know their fate and will try to take anyone they can with them to that fate. People thinking demons are capable of doing good try thinking on this:
“And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: / And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand? / And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges.”
Even Abraham Lincoln quoted something similar when referring to our country during the civil war. Since the United States would not be at all strong if people were always warring over slavery and other things.
Anyways back to my point, video games are especially good at making demons look like heroes and wholesome. That they are bad but deep down they do have some good. Now I have no problem with video games, I enjoy them quite a bit, they are fun, but separate reality from the fiction. Now some think demons are just fiction, I myself believe otherwise and have seen some pretty crazy crap out there to know they do exists and confirm my beliefs. Same goes for Angels. I know so many people that have such a warped view on both Angels and Demons because of how the media portrays them. To many Angels are the goody two shoes that strum harps and sit on clouds and Demons are the bad ass cool mofos. They are powerful and they can and will hurt you in any way they can. They won’t help you, they won’t suddenly come to your aid, you cannot control them. As much as you would like to, you can’t. The only one that has power over them is God and the Angels are in a constant battle with them. Angels are just as strong as Demons but are under the command of God to protect and help. Demons are the opposites and are under the command of the Fallen One who is out to get you. He wants to drag you down with him.
Now I don’t know if whoever reads this agrees with me or not. I would love feedback regardless of whether you agree or not, but do not bash please. I respect everyones opinion and I appreciate that people respect mine. Anyways I might do more blogs delving into what I believe here and there. Won’t always be like this but it’s part of who I am and I like to share. Oh and for those into heavier music that’s really pretty good check out Demon Hunter, the image above is one of their album covers. Really good music, good message.
