    As an Avengers fan, I find this amazing. Well done, Kevin!

  2. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, Michael.

    And here I thought you’d be upset that I said Captain America was no match for Thanos.

    Maybe I should have gone for Captain America, Jerry Lee Lewis, J.I. Packer, and Miss Kitty collectively being no match for Thanos. 🙂

    Ouch!

  4. Michael says:

    You’ve obviously never seen Miss Kitty angry…

    Thanos might be Prince Phillip?
    So many people with answers to the world’s problems leave God out of their thinking….. Without Whom the world IS doomed
    Good read, Kevin, thank you. 🙏

    Thanks, Em.

    Spot on, Kev!

    Kevin..I believe you are hearing from God’s Spirit, and you’re a very good writer so may I say…more, please (no stress, brother!). I agree with the entire article. I’m feeling the warfare aspect of all this, which may be due to my experiences. But I’ve been considering the horrendous spiritual battle taking place, that it has obviously grown more intense, and we all must remember we are in mortal combat with an enemy not comparable to any human power. And he wants us all dead, in the flesh and in the spirit. This is hardcore warfare, I can feel it…just like before. Just a word of encouragement to all: Buckle up, folks. And when I say buckle up, I’m talking about the FULL armor of God, every day, put it on. This is a call to (spiritual) arms. <—–Sad that I have to specify that it's a spiritual call to arms, lest some conspiratorially minded person accuse me of trying to foment physical violence..but I digress.

    Illuminati plant! J/k.

    Today one of my F/B friends in Sacramento (I know in real life, just haven’t seen him in a while), stepped in at the gym to defend a young guy yelling at an older man in the pool for wearing a mask, calling him a Biden stooge, illuminati, etc… a police report will be filed.

    Then I saw a news story from Minnesota where a man pulled a gun in a gym there because he was upset people weren’t wearing masks.

    There’s an underlying sickness being exposed here, triggered by this crisis.

  10. Mike E. says:

    TNV..agreed..and considering the skyrocketing gun sales (that industry is raking in the $$) in our country, the fact that homicides are also skyrocketing, and ammo being bought up way faster than they can produce it. An underlying sickness..? Oh yes. And the patient is on a ventilator, figuratively speaking.

  11. Steve says:

    Interesting read. I think there may be an application here to the anti-vaccers. After all, I think they view Bill Gates as a Thanos type figure who wants to reduce the world’s population by vaccinating everyone, at least the way the conspiracy narrative goes.

  12. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, CK & Mike.

    I thought it was funny that in the previous article we spoke about the high majesty of what we read (the KJV) followed by an article comparing the actions of the church to a comic book character.
    **actually calling the villain comic book character more noble than the members of the church.**

  14. Kevin H says:

    MLD,

    Would it have helped you if instead of Thanos I would have written about some Shakespearean villain in like prose. 🙂

    As for calling a comic book villain more noble than members of the church, I would challenge you to where I said such a thing? The closest I come in any semblance of such is to say that the church should know better about acting in the ways that God wants us to. In no manner whatsoever do I say that Thanos is more noble in his acts of death and destruction.

  15. CM says:

    MLD,

    Kind of like a nice filet mignon dinner followed by a stale pastry dessert from the local gas station?

  16. Martin Luther's Disciple says:

    Kevin H – you seem to give Thanos a break – that he cannot know right from wrong – “He is unable to comprehend that his acts causing pain, suffering, and death are evil that cannot be justified no matter what the intentions are behind them. ”

    The Bible would say otherwise about unbelievers.

  17. Em says:

    There are members of a church and then there are members of The Church…. or so it seems to me

  18. Jean says:

    KevinH,

    I think the thrust of your article invites the question: When it comes to ethics and morality, Is Christianity a religion devoted to outcomes or principles.

    In my view, Christianity is based on principles, and we **trust** in God that (i) His ways are best for us, and (ii) if we walk in His ways, God will bring about the outcomes that will work together for our good.

  19. Kevin H says:

    MLD,

    So that is still not saying Thanos is more noble.

    I would say the same of many church members who commit wrongful acts to achieve their good intentions – they are unable to comprehend what they are doing is wrong, at least they act that way. When you point out that things they are doing are wrong and in contradiction to how the Bible instructs us to act, they answer in a manner as if this is incomprehensible to them.

  20. Kevin H says:

    Em,

    We can look around us and see that members of particular churches seem to cause more trouble than members of other churches, but they still altogether are members of the Church.

  21. Kevin H says:

    Jean,

    I very much agree. And even when we walk in His ways and the outcomes don’t appear to be good to us, maybe the reality is that the good “outcome” was simply that we were faithful to God and His ways. And in some manner unforeseen or imperceptible to us, good does come of it.

    This is the best you’ve ever done Kevin. I appreciate it.

  23. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, Josh.

  24. Owen says:

    Kevin, excellent read.

    It has bothered me for a long time now, that many seem to have forgotten that the changes we are supposed to be bringing about (and the methods thereof) have little to do with politics.

  25. Kevin H says:

    Thanks, Owen.
