How many movies, books, and especially TV series are predicated on the fact that “something is out there”, beyond what we can see and experience in the natural world? What is it about the supernatural that is so intriguing that Hollywood is able to make so much money under this genre? Finally, and most significantly, why do nearly all these plotlines portray the supernatural as being evil and that it is up to man to thwart their malevolent objectives?
Biblical Christian Awareness
The acceptance of the supernatural in fictional entertainment by the general population allows humanity to experience the sense that there is, in fact, “something out there”, without having to acknowledge a supreme being, God. Perhaps some could use this reality as a tool for evangelism. However, the deeper, nefarious nature of this trend has more to do with the habituation of the view that there is an evil supernatural that is not under the control of a supreme, all-powerful God who has offered mankind a solution. Satan is alive and well on this earth, working his plan of destruction while refusing to accept his eventual failure, clearly predicted and presented by the end of the Biblical, non-fiction account.
