Had to Be a Sacrifice

It’s true.  For the world to be at peace, there had to be a sacrifice, but I don’t think this guy would be able to save us from ourselves.  Only one Superhero could do that, and His name is Jesus, the Christ.  When He returns, we will have the peace that so many promise.

Superhero stories are all based, at least in part, on the story of Jesus Christ.  They can’t help it.  You can’t tell a story about saving the world or selfless sacrifice without borrowing from what Jesus did for us.  We love these stories, because they resonate with that part of our heart that longs for a Savior.  It’s okay for us to enjoy most of them, but we should always remember where they came from.
