Rev. Mark Driscoll: Avatar is a “demonic, satanic film”
"Driscoll helped build the popular Mars Hill Church into one of the most talked about evangelical mega-churches in the country...
His main objection appears to be that “Avatar” preaches a worship of “created things” rather than the creator. Of nature rather than God.
In that, Driscoll sees demons. And demons — to him as to many Christians — are as common as weeds.
“['Avatar'] is new age, satanic, demonic paganism, and people are just stunned by the visuals,” he said. “Well, the visuals are amazing because Satan wants you to emotionally connect with a lie.”
Driscoll often makes fun of fundamentalists, but he sure sounds like one himself. He tries to be so hip and cool, but then he starts talking like this, and it’s clear he’s just like all the other fundie preachers but with different clothes and music."
Personally, for me Avatar is one of the most enlightening, spiritual films ever made. Having seen it multiple times, I always come away from a viewing feeling a million times better than having experienced any Christian sermon.
So, just STFU Rev Driscoll.
