May The Source Be With You?
The Force is used as a means for the passive Jedi (and the aggressive Sith) to achieve a certain amount of godhood, but even though they seem to have extraordinary godlike powers, they are not as immortal as one may think, or are they? Didn't Qui Gon Jinn achieve enlightenment, or a transcended state of consciousness? According to New Age dogma, that means he achieved god consciousness. Anyway, even the scope of the supernatural powers that the Jedi/Sith put on display for us are kinda iffy, and by that I mean they are not logically consistent. Fans of the franchise will know what I mean. That is due to a number of things according to serious fans, one of them being that George Lucas didn't write all of the movie screenplays all by himself, he had co-authors on one or two episodes. However, he was the executive producer if not the director of all of them, so I don't completely buy that excuse entirely. I would simply think that Lucas is a human storyteller, therefore Lucas' stories will have inconsistencies.
As for Lucas' inspiration for the Force itself, where did that really come from? Interestingly enough, serial killer Theodore "Ted" R. Bundy told his girlfriend, Elizabeth Kendall, that it was the Force that pushed him to kill all of those women. Really? Yes, and his killing spree began in 1974 (probably even earlier), which is three years before Star Wars came out. Could the force really be an occultist term that Satanists use to refer to their dark lord, Satan? Maybe. Well, why would Lucas bring this clandestine term out in the open? I would think it was a calculated means of desensitizing the masses to what is coming, perhaps the Satanic one world religion and government. Something Lucas and his pals are apparently looking forward to, and are actually working toward. You know, liberating man kind from God's tyrannical rule of absolute truth, and bringing them the freedom of Satan's "do what thou wilt" government.
The Bible teaches us God's point of view regarding good and evil, and the unseen spiritual world, which is the exact opposite of Lucas' Jedi doctrine. We learn that Satan is a high ranking morally corrupt cherub, whose dark power is so completely sinister, that he would even dare to hide himself under a mask of light, or goodness. We can't forget that there is such a thing as false light. From the Bible, we also learn how Jesus is the literal embodiment of the Almighty, whose exceedingly great power exhibits absolute moral righteousness, and there is not any smidgen of darkness or the least bit of shadow in him. Jesus was consistent in his actions and words, unlike the Jedi. Jesus even said that Satan is the father of lies (or the original source of lies), and was a murderer from the beginning. No such accusations can be said of Jesus. Clearly the powers of good and evil are separate, they don't flow from the same "neutral" source. So where does George Lucas get his inspiration for the Force, since it isn't in the Bible? He gets his inspiration from LaVeyan Satanism.
"Satan is the name used by Judeo-Christians for that force of individuality and pride within us. But the force itself has been called by many names. We embrace Christian myths of Satan and Lucifer, along with Satanic renderings in Greek, Roman, Islamic, Sumerian, Syrian, Phrygian, Egyptian, Chinese or Hindu mythologies, to name but a few. " - Anton LaVey, The Secret Life of a Satanist,1992, Feral House Publishing (emphasis mine)

The Force of Faith
"Faith is a spiritual force...it is substance. Faith has the ability to affect natural substance."
"Faith is the force God has given us to govern our personal lives day in and day out. He expects us to take that spiritual force - the same force he used to create the material world - and change our circumstances. - Kenneth Copeland
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Heb. 11:1
Jesus Doesn't Need Faith
Even though Satan and his fallen angelic minions can perform lying wonders by their own limited power (that defy natural laws), they are done under the Lord's authoritative umbrella, and according to Jesus' will, but not by his power. This revelation may shock the cotton socks off many believers. Which brings me to another cleaver lie that witchcraft and Star Wars teaches: That the Force can be controlled by both the Jedi, and Sith, for good, or for evil respectively. In reality, the demons and their power that witches claim they control through their words (as spells), are in reality, controlling them. I mean, are they so foolish as to believe that a circle of chalk drawn on the floor, and magical jibberish will keep a demon at bay? Like the man said in the movie Aliens when they had to give up their live rounds, "What are we going to use on them? Harsh language?! " We human beings are not in possession of supernatural powers on our own, unless we are under the influence or control of Satan's kingdom of darkness, or the Lord Jesus' entirely separate kingdom of light and righteousness. Who ever you worship and serve, then that is who controls you!
So by putting together their half-truth (or false) teachings, that words are containers of power, and positive and negative words and forces attract what you say, coupled with their penchant for over stepping authoritative boundaries, then according to them you can become what they call: little gods. Yes dear reader, they claim that by using the force of faith, they can:
- verbally command storms to dissolve,
- command money to fly into their wallet (or bank account)
- demand that sickness leave
These wolves have also taken up the mantle of what is called "Shepherding,' which sounds so benign and pastoral, right? However, shepherding is really about cultist mind control, which they exert over their willfully blind sheep. Their half-truths and evasion tactics reveal the many holes in their theological cistern, and their true nature as false teachers that are hiding behind their shepherd's clothing. Wow, speaking of shepherds, looky here. This Qui Gon Jinn look-a- like certainly looks like a shepherd, huh? By the way, Jinn (genie) are evil spirits in Arabic mythology. Did I mention George Lucas was inspired by the myths and legends of other nations?
Dear Reader, our God is not a god of forces, he is the one and only God who made them! He is not subject to them, he is far above them. As for whether or not the positive and negative sides of the physical forces have the power to affect our lives, that is obvious, they do. But let's not be duped into thinking we can control them, or that this is something the Lord Jesus advocates. The Lord Jesus Christ is in complete and total control of everything in the universe he created, and we, his true sheep, are to be completely dependent upon him. Thank God for that! Amen!
