That’s right, the bad ideas about Jesus, called heresies, can be matched to different superheroes you’ve read about in comic books, seen on TV and now enjoy in the movies (are you a DC or Marvel movie fan?)
That’s the point of Todd Miles’ book “Superheroes Can’t Save You”. I found it to be a wonderful resource because it takes dry, theological stuff (just look at the names!) and makes it accessible and easy to understand. Each chapter begins with a brief description of the superhero from the authors experience and love for the comics. Todd then describes the heresy (which you now understand because of the connection to the superhero), who commits the heresy today, what the Bible says and finally why it is important. A great resource for anyone and everyone!
Post your answer to the quiz in the comments! I’ll post the answers next week!
But don’t take my word for it, read the book, don’t wait for the movie.
Have a little hope on me, Roger
*Wait a minute you say, Gollum is no superhero. Correct you are. And there is no chapter on the Gollum heresy. It is discussed in the chapter on the Spider-Man heresy because the Spider-Man heresy was an over reaction to the Gollum heresy.
